Checking and waiting for Things to happen

I find myself checking the status of the Things development at least once a week and I’m always happy to see progress there. Even after using and trial-ing many other apps I still find that Things is the one app that works the best for me. Obviously it feels out-of-place in iOS7 but still it works fine.

Cultured Code really take their time to work on the their applications. Implementing their own sync service took them really a while but in the end it was worth it. It is one of the best sync implementation that I have seen so far and it's very fast and reliable. Just imagine that in conjunction with iOS background sync.

Taking this into consideration I think waiting for Things 3 will be worth it. I just hope that the waiting will be over soon as I start to like the simplicity of Clear more and more.

Fontello - Icon fonts generator

I'm currently working on a little re-design of this blog and this tool is just what I was looking for. It simply let's one select specific icons from a set of different icon-fonts and then generates a custom icon-font from those. Perfect!

It always seemed unreasonable to me to load a whole font with 100+ icons when I actually only need five or six of them. Very neat.

A Little Side-Note

During the last few weeks I realised that the more I use Twitter the the more I start to use my App.net account again. I guess I can’t give up on anything. I have been working on this blog’s theme for a while and took advantage of… READ MORE

Rediscovered photos of John Coltrane

Stewart still has the Rolleiflex camera he used at the session, and the contact sheets as well. Many of the images he shot have been seen on CDs, as well as in numerous books and magazine articles. But 72 photographs from six rolls of film never made it beyond the contact-sheet stage, and so haven’t been published.

A great series of images from the recording of A Love Supreme. Would love to see the rest of them

Butcher's what?

Cockney Rhyming Slang: I never new that something like even this existed, but thanks to International Waters I am a tad wiser.

I was having a real bubble listening to the episode and learning about that. You might want to have a butcher's at the wind and kite yourself.

Silly funny things these are, don't think there's anything like that in my language.
