I really, really liked Everpix. I signed up to pay for the service, and I uploaded thousands of photos. The part I enjoyed the most was the daily flashback email that showed me highlights from this day last year, the year before, etc. I regularly would look at those and share selected images of the kiddos, etc, with my wife. I’ll miss that.
Picturelife offered up a way to migrate images from Everpix, so I’ve signed up there first. So far, it looks pretty cool. I had to unsubscribe from a friend’s shared iCloud Photo Stream for the time being, because it was polluting my Picturelife, but other than that it’s been pretty seamless.
I have the Loom app on my phone, but I haven’t really tried it out yet.
I’ve got tens of thousands of photos. Does anyone have any better suggestions?
I wrote a post about e-commerce holiday readiness over at the Compuware APM blog. Check it out at the link below.
As e-commerce continues to widen its reach beyond the traditional browser onto connected devices – smartphones, tablets, laptops, etc – ensuring that you are ready to handle peak season traffic has become a very important consideration for retailers. It is critical to plan appropriately and ensure that the right parties are involved – not just for your tech team, but for the business as well. Here are some topics to spark your thinking.
I work as a consultant, so tracking my time is very important. The tool we use internally for time cards is terrible, so several years ago I started logging my time in a text file (I call it “doing.txt”, it lives in Dropbox), and using that file as a reference to enter my time each week.
Over time the format of the file evolved, until I discovered TaskPaper, a “magic notebook” designed for to-do lists. I don’t use TaskPaper much anymore, but I still use the format for my time-tracking log.
Another tool that I’ve grown quite addicted to is Alfred. The more I discovered the power of Alfred, I decided to try to make my life easier by enabling logging to my time log using Alfred.
If you think this might be useful, you can grab it from GitHub. Let me know how you like it.
2,500,823 files. 3.6TB. Let’s do this, CrashPlan.
(As an aside, I actually prefer Backblaze, but they don’t support backing up from NAS drives, and I’m not sure what it’d take to get it running under FreeBSD. Fix that guys.)
Really excited that Apple has dropped the 15″ non-retina MacBook Pros from the lineup. Here’s hoping my employer, who thus far has refused to purchase the retina MBPs will now be forced to replace the old 15″ers with the new.
I’m not even that crazy about the retina display, but my Mid-2010 15″ MBP is aging, and I really want the SSD.
