It’s been a crazy couple of months, in Taiwan, Los Angeles, Beijing, Guangzhou and Hong Kong, and a pair of ear drums filled with fluid, no longer able to equalize…
Last weekend my friend Will came for a visit, and recommended some great little Mac stuff while geeking out for a bit. Now the following tools are in use:
- Sequel Pro：The “Sequel” to Cocoa MySQL
- Launch Bar: Beta 5 Released
- iStat Menus: System Monitoring and World Clock in Menu Bar
- Adium FaceBook Connector: Connect with FaceBook friends in Adium
These have replace my use of:
- Mac OS X Menu Bar System Clock
- World Clock Deluxe
And on the LaunchBar front, much has changed since the “old days”. Here are a few very useful tips to get you started.
Also, take a look at LaunchBar’s “Text Clips” feature.
|A text document whose filename ends with a special .clip.txt or .clip.rtf filename extension is treated as a Text Clip File. Opening such a file via LaunchBar inserts the file’s contents in the frontmost application.
You can use this feature to quickly insert predefined text blocks in the currently edited document.
