Never knew there was an alternative to both Qwerty and Dvorak.
It does very many things very well, and it’s free. What else can you want in life?
Download and enjoy.
I have actually completed the security steps that linked to in a previous post. I hope that Ben Brooks’ article is read widely. I’ve been hacked online and recently a friend has been hacked. This is not just something that happens to somebody else.
This is something that happens when you’re drinking your coffee or when you’re just messing around on the internet at home.
I must also say that I love the Coffee Emporium and have never had any trouble there. It just so turns out that it’s their mug that I have the picture of.
Put down your coffee cups, wherever they are from, and read the article that I referenced two days ago here.
Must be read. Have been busy with the instructions since reading it.
I have been in a fog of technologic discovery the past 24 hours due to finally having read Shawn Blanc’s review of LaunchBar, which I use when I am not using Alfred. I had not completely realized all that LaunchBar can do that Alfred, as far as I’ve used it, has not.
I can do snippets and possibly save myself from needing to run TextExpander, which I use fairly infrequently.
A thing to remember: finding new and better ways to work is not the same as actually doing the work yourself. I assume that I am not the only person to need to remember this. Therefore…
If you are geeky: use LaunchBar.
If you are not geeky: use Alfred.
As the security expert Bruce Schneier wrote recently, it isn’t that the Internet has been penetrated by the surveillance state; it’s that the Internet, in effect, is a surveillance state.
cons: theyve been taught their whole lives that only their opinions matter, and if you differ from them? theyre being oppressed.—
