Seriously, fuck the Aeropress.
Half a year later, I’m pretty much done with it. Even if I buy small batches of really good beans, measure them diligently, grind them myself, make sure the water has just the right temperature, use the silly upside-down method – the coffee ends up tasting just… meh.
And after I managed to break a cup today by apparently using too much force pressing the aero through the coffee, I decided to unpack my ten-year old Senseo machine and have a nice, fast, simple to make and actually good cup of coffee.
If you were – like me – afraid Yosemite broke the audio on your Mac: here you go. System Preferences → Sound → Sound Effects. ↬ @caseyliss
I know I am not the only one to notice, but lately all this stuff that used to “just work” for me on my Mac tends to have it’s problems.
This morning I wrote something in Byword on my phone, tried to save it to iCloud, which – yes – used to work great, and then it was just gone. Magic!
Do I now have to copy it first to the clipboard, like back in the bad old blogging days, when one could never be quite sure if a web form might not properly post something?
A new Slipknot album.
Fiddling with my blog layout, listening to a new Slipknot album. It’s as if the last 10 years didn’t happen at all.

From the department of useful software: let.ter.
A small email client with only one goal: write an email, send it, get out. No looking at an inbox, no sorting, nothing, just a textfield for the email, a line to enter the recipient and a button to send.
I like software like that. A lot.
Absolutely worth the time. Great man.
