Mr. OmniFocus aka David Sparks started a new series on his blog about the hurdles one might face when dealing with task management systems. I recently switched from Things to OmniFocus and faced some problems as well. After years with the German task management application I had acquired a workflow…

Brett Terpstra's TitleCase API & Script

I always struggle when it comes to post titles and titles in general, because I'm never sure which words to capitalize and which not. Your friendly next door nerd Brett Terpstra created not only a script but also an API that turns your title into the right TitleCase format used by AP and co. To…

1Password Meta Data Leak

Earlier today I came across this Tweet from Hacker News: 1Password Leaks Your Data http://t.co/3ETH2z6NIV – Hacker News (@newsycombinator) October 18, 2015 tl;dr: They seem to leak some meta data when you're using the old Agile Keychain format. Though this can be bad enough, Dale Myers found that t…

Jekyll Auto-Build With Git Hooks

tl;dr: Use the full path to your jekyll executable when running it from a git hook. As much as I love Jekyll for it's nerdiness and it's speed, as much can it be annoying at times when you have to "compile" your website and upload it to your server every time you fix a comma. This…

John's Back!

Earlier this year, I was very sad to see John Chidgey shut down his amazing podcast Pragmatic.

It's called The Engineered Network, or short TEN.…

Fixing My Game Boy

When I was 5 or 6 my mom gave me a Game Boy with Tetris and Kid Icarus. I never really got into Tetris, but I really loved Kid Icarus. A while later, someone (probably my mom, too) gave me a copy of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. I didn't know it back then, but from today's point of view, I'd count it as o…

RTFM, Flo!

For the last couple of days, I was pulling my hair out over an issue with CoreLocation's geofencing features. As I stated earlier, our new app Iris relies heavily on those geofences. When I first implemented them, everything seemed fine. But when I switched to some closer test cases around my area…

Learning with Skillshare

Last week, Timo Hetzel had Skillshare as a sponsor for his German podcast Bits und so. They offer video tutorials on a wide variety of topics, ranging from gardening to photography. I enrolled to a few of those courses and found most of them rather enjoyable. So, if you’ve got a generally curious m…

Geofencing

Update August 28, 2015: I had some trouble regarding those geofences later down the road. I wrote it down here. If you follow me on Twitter you might have noticed, that lately Cat Noone and I talked about an app we’re developing called Iris. Iris is our new project, based on an idea Cat came up w…
