Love thy neighbor – BrettTerpstra.com

10.08.2015 02:00

Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy talking to people. I do it a lot. My nightmare (when it comes to living arrangements), though, would be to really like people I have no buffer from. When my friends and I want to hang out, we can flake. We can make lame excuses, or we can just honestly say “I’m not feeling like it.” But if that friend can just come knock on your door, everything falls apart. I love my neighbor for the moron that he is, and appreciate the buffer he provides from the world.

Macdrifter:

Ghostery is a browser plugin available for Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera and it dramatically speeds up the web. Ok, that’s not the goal of Ghostery, but it’s a major benefit. Ghostery blocks calls to web servers that it knows are ad or tracking networks. Some would call it an ad-blocker. I call it a drain unclogger. It prevents Web pages from making additional calls out to known bad actors. It prevents a Web site from hijacking your own browser to track you

I’m not a fan of Ad blockers, because I believe that Ads are a fair trade when you don’t pay for the content. But I’m not okay with trackers. And Ghostery is a great way to avcoid trackers on Windows and OS X.

Moving From Google Calendar – Every Second Weekend

10.08.2015 02:00

Over the past week, I have sat down in the evenings Google Calendar open and my new leather diary on the desk and copied all of my Google Calendar entries into the paper diary. Since spending some time on this task I now put the diary in my work bag every day having it with me allows me the ability to easily flick to a particular day and see exactly what is happening, from here I can schedule blog posts, life events, write notes and plan my days with Little Miss, for me having an actual diary to flick through is a much better solution than Google Calendar, I am not saying that Google Calendar is by any means a bad thing especially when it comes to sharing your events with loved ones or colleagues but for me it just wasn’t working anymore. I am still using Google Calendar for important reminders, but appointments and life events have a new home in my diary.

I moved away from my digital iCloud + Fantastical a few months ago. My [Hobonichi Planner] is exactly what I need, without all the noise of a digital calendar, and it works without internet, and electricity.

Non-Google analytics – All this

10.08.2015 02:00

I still use GA, I’m not 100% sure. But the thing I’m looking for is an alternative from a company that does one thing – analytics. I would not mind paying for it, if it’s good.

512 Pixels review of Apple Watch

04.08.2015 02:00

Stephen Hackett:

As I said over 2,800 words ago, I’m conflicted when it comes to thinking about Apple Watch.

I’d recommend it to anyone who is strongly tied to their iPhone and is looking for something to track their fitness.

Great review, and I can never make up my mind and write something about the Apple Watch.

iOS Game

04.08.2015 02:00

I saw this game on the front page of the iOS App Store the other day. The concept itself it kind of weird, but it is a fantastic game. It is easy enough to get a hold of within seconds, and just hard enough to keep you interested.

I love beautiful and unique games.

The Pen Addict

Great review of my favourite planner. I use my every single day to plan short term, long term and to keep a log of the highlevel stuff I was working on.

I use the Hobonichi Planner, since it is the only one available in English, but I would consider the others if or when they are available in English.

You can use them for many different things. Some people use them as a log, while others use them to journal, and of cource planning.
