Fresh Install

I had to reinstall my computer at work today, so I decided to make a list of the software I usually install when doing so.

  • Dropbox – I have a folder for the most important things I need to sync, so I just select this one for selective sync first.
  • 1Password – the 1password keychain would be one of those things.
  • Alfred – I don’t know how else to do anything on a Mac anymore
  • Moom – because that’s just who am I. I like to put some order to my application windows.
  • TextExpander – I tend to forget about this up until that moment I type in something and it doesn’t magically change into a whole sentence or my email address.
  • Inconsolata – for the terminal (always with the Homebrew color settings)
  • Homebrew – because I know I will need it at some point. Unrelated to the terminal color setting.
  • SourceTree – I know, I know. But I need a GUI for git.
  • TextMate 2 – might not be done, but it’s still my favorite text editor.
  • Tweetbot – just because.
  • Caffeine – I like my computer to stay awake when I seemingly don’t use it for a while.
  • Bartender – to keep the menu bar clean.
  • GPGTools – because.

If all of that is done, I also like to install

  • Marked 2 – because Markdown.
  • Chrome – because convenience.
  • Byword – also because Markdown
  • Evernote – because I do have some stuff in there.
  • Pixelmator – to mate some pixels.
  • Skype – because I sometimes have to.
  • nvAlt – I take a lot of notes.
  • Piezo – because I still hope I’ll record a podcast again and this is the easiest way to do so.

It’s pretty much perfect.

Does anyone know of a little program like this that I can wire to my blog? You bet I’d blog a whole lot more.

Once Upon – today and tomorrow
“Once Upon” are three important contemporary web sites, recreated with technology and spirit of late 1997, according to the memories of Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied. They created a 1997 version of Google+, YouTube and facebook, all optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03, running under Windows 95. Of course you can view them with a browser that still supports HTML Frames. I really love this little detail: the transfer speed of the server is limited to 8 kB/s («dial-up» speed).
