    @cano It did for a while! It was a "what have I got to lose" moment, for sure. After 2 months it died again. When it started to show symptoms last summer I decided to buy a mac mini (late 2012 i7 quad core), and have been relying my ipad air for travel.

      @cano iStat is great. About a year ago my old MBP finally died, so it sat around until winter, when I decided to reflow the graphics card solder via the bake your motherboard method! I used iStats to monitor CPU temperatures. It was fun.

        @cano I meant to reply to you 2 months ago, but got distracted! :o) did you get this bundle? I'm finding I now have nearly all the apps we see in bundles these days, so I didn't go for it! Now to learn the apps I have...

          @thedoctor Hi, Doc! It makes me happy to see the conversations still going on, and I agree there is nothing like it. Even dipping in periodically, I feel more connection here than my twitter! Thanks for the reply. @sumudu

            @sumudu I still linger around here! I don't participate much, but can't seem to let go of ADN.

                  @thedoctor @seesolve @pme I fourth that. There's also a windows version, I use it at work - works great for meetings and presentations when you don't want the display to go to sleep.

                    @shawna This is why I hang on to ADN! Little gems of info like this. Going to check out NPR Invisibilia podcast now.

                      @caycepollard i was curious about the Windows experience. I just set it up on my Mac and it works well. I've used Splashtop, but I found Screens easier to use and set up. I also tested remotely, it worked fine.

                        @cano Something to look out for: @ttscoff is working on a version of Marked 2 that will provide iThoughtsX and Ulysses III support. It sounded pretty amazing. Do I have too many tools?

                          @cano I bought mindnode for iOS after picking up the mac version in a bundle, but have used ithoughts more on the ipad. On the Mac I find myself using Curio, which supports drag and drop from other mindmaps.

                            @cano Can also use a mindmap and transfer to OO - when I am having trouble putting things in order a mindmap helps. Should be able to drag an outline in text form into OF. I often find myself using lighter options for outlining.

                              @charlie_november Portobello? I had to look it up. I also just figured out the white and brown common shrooms are the same species (cheaper without the name!). I’ll buy them if I am desperate for a mushroom. They can be rubbery. @manx @indigo

                                @sumudu I check in once in a while and engage on rare occasions (like now!). It is pretty quiet here. But even as little as I participate, it’s hard to let go.

                                  @indigo Yes! That’s the best way to learn. I’ve been doing it a while, and only with the well-known species that I learned from someone and followed up with my own research. It’s a treat of living in the Pacific Northwest. @manx

                                    @manx Funny! I will only eat three or four kinds - they are unmistakeable, though chanterelles have a couple of look alikes. My problem with the season is I get “gold fever” when walking in the woods, instead of enjoying everything else around me! @indigo

                                      @indigo Yes! The farmer’s market is a good indication. We have quite a mushroom market in the NW. @manx
