    Worked like 25% of time anyway, so probably best for everyone. I, for one, won’t miss the “Twitpic rage 😡” when things wouldn’t load. “@arstechnica: Twitpic to shut down picture sharing service after trademark dispute with Twitter http://bit.ly/1qs01La

      Tmux is to GNU screen what Postfix is to Sendmail or Nginx is to Apache.

        @maclemon did you ever figure anything out for this? I’d be interested in doing this/knowing if it’s possible.

          @zev The Sanyo eneloop AAAs are what I use. But definitely defer until office supply dwindles. 😉

            @zev By “travel”, I was think air travel. Unless I’m flying somewhere, mine stay at my office. Only downside about them is you should get a good set of rechargeable AAAs and a good charger. I like the Maha chargers. But one battery does last a long time.

              @zev That would be a good enhancement. I love mine, so I’d definitely recommend them. And so light to travel with.

                While I can’t stand doing iOS things through iTunes, it’s a walk in the park compared to the tortuous hell that Android (Samsung) is. </rant>

                  Not sure who these fans of Android are, but their standards for how things should work must have been set by decades of using/being abused by Windows. Anyone who argues that Android is a viable alternative to iOS needs a good slap upside the head.

                    Android 4.2 to 4.4 software update experience: three failed OTA updates with an hour download EACH attempt and even a factory reset mixed in. Samsung Kies for Mac is junk and crashed. Ended up trying from Parallels. XP=failed; finally worked with Win7.

                      Trying to get back into drawing. Here’s the invitation I made for my daughter’s fourth birthday. The girl in the picture is shamelessly copied/redrawn from the book, Miss Nelson is Missing! Image [photos.app.net]

                        Really disappointed by the 3D animation in Man of Steel. They still have a long way to go to make things look natural and not like a video game.

                          I’m disappointed that Apple has dropped Aperture, but it has made the decision to switch to Lightroom very easy, as I had been contemplating it for a while. I just wish they hadn’t waited so long to tell people.

                            @emilyglover they also had a good one in The Netherlands about a decade and a half ago. They probably discontinued it, too. I call it, “The Arrested Development Effect”.

                              @emilyglover Burger King used to have a really good veggie patty that was kidney bean-based. It was better than any of the competition which either had nothing or a crap one with peas and carrots. Sadly, they discontinued it. 😥

                                I don’t get why anyone would buy a locked Nexus 5 from a carrier for $500 instead of buying an unlocked one directly from Google for $350. I’m so grateful that Apple doesn’t let carriers get their slimy hands on iPhones before the customer.

                                  Got an Android to play with. It came with 4.2, which is old. No official update from carrier, so I looked at installing an unofficial firmware. What a total shit show. It’s exactly like what using Windows is like. I give up, defeated.

                                    @marc I almost always want to paste in the same location. If I needed something in the center, I’d use the alignment tools which offer many more options than the x/y middle.

                                      @emilyglover there are perforated blinds (usually vinyl) that let light through, but you can’t see in. That reverses at night though, so you still need opaque curtains. We love ours.

                                        @zev `curl --silent $@ | python -m json.tool` suppresses the transfer output, leaving the output just the formatted json. Maybe you already have this in your ~/.curlrc file though if you're not seeing that.
