Marked 2.5—a major update to my Markdown preview and writing tools collection—is now available for direct purchase and from the Mac App Store! It’s a free upgrade for all Marked 2 customers, and available at a discounted $11.99 for new customers right now.

Great update, for a great app, I use it almost every day, to preview and export markdown files to PDF.

When I first started exploring the brave new world of Cocoa and Unix running on a Mac, I had no idea that the code I was writing would be something I relied on 14 years later. Sometimes you scratch an itch that never goes away.

Looks fantastic, and is well worth the $10.

patrickrhone / journal » Blog Archive » Not All Introverts Are Quiet

08.10.2015 02:00

At a party, you will find me being gregarious and able to easily engage in conversation with others. At a conference, I have little problem discussing the points of the speaker or opening a dialog in the hallways with fellow attendees. When I was a student in class, I never had an issue with raising my hand and asserting my view when called upon. I even engage store clerks with friendly trivial banter about the quality of the day. “Quiet” is not the first word that would come to mind to describe me — even by those who know me well or have known me for a long time.

This piece by Patrick Rhone is fantastic.

I get annoyed when people use “introverted” instead of “being for myself” in a sentence. For example “I have been very introverted the last few days”.

I’m a introvery, but I don’t have a problem talking in front of large amounts of people, or to do jobs that most people think about as “extroverted-jobs” like street or door to door sales. There are different versions of introverts, and extraverts.

The difference is not in how loud or quite they are; the difference is in how they re-charge. I re-charge by being alone, by myself, while an extrovert do the same by beign around other people

Evernote is in deep trouble – Business Insider

06.10.2015 02:00

I mostly agree with it, something I think is weird, because it is Business Insider. My problem with Evernote is that they have focused too much on extending the product, and not enough on making the core product better; the oposite have been the case, I find the core experience way worse today, than it was in 2010, something I think is sad.

patrickrhone / journal » Blog Archive » Some Thoughts On Solitude

06.10.2015 02:00

I have long wanted to take a private/personal retreat of some kind. Last Christmas, my best friend Dawn gave me the gift of one — telling me to simply choose what I wanted and she would take care of any needed details. I searched for through the many option in the area, but kept coming back to a Franciscan based hermitage retreat called Pacem in Terris (Latin for “Peace on Earth”). My Birthday fell at the end of last week and I felt it would be perfect timing to spend it there in solitude and reflection.
