The Unclutterer

David Caolo:

I’m a confirmed gadget nut, and therefore many of my preferred tools for productivity and organization are electronic, including hardware and software. Yet, I still keep and use a paper notebook almost every day because I love my paper calendar and notebooks. This can be hard to reconcile. I am continually asking myself questions, such as: Why am I writing things down twice? And, um, where did I do that recent brainstorming session, on my notebook or computer?

I use notebooks for many different things these days. My GTD system is in Field Notes, and the notes that have a very limited life span also goes in Field Notes. I write all my notes from lectures, studying and meetings in a larger notebook. And I use a paper journal.

The reason I have moved most of my stuff over to pen and paper is simplicity, they don’t require a battery, and there are no distractions.

Yeah, I have had a lot of minor networking issues since Yosemite came out. A proper fix for discoveryd is on the top of my wish list for 10.11.

Finally. Evernote have introduced something in between Basic / Free and Premium, and the Premium level have unlimited uploads and more.

This is a great move. Some people like me want the Premium features, while others just need some of them. The Plus level is perfect for them.

Micro Four Thirds Lenses — Tools and Toys

05.05.2015 02:00

Great post, with some good looking lenses for MFT cameras. I don’t use them, because I’m sticking with my big Canon DSLR.

I do so because:

  • Erognomics on big DSLRS are better, and I have noticed the difference when I spent whole days shooting.

  • I prefer to have a real optical viewfinder, because they are way faster than what an electionic one can be.

Picking lenses for your camera is always difficult. My advice is to buy few and good lenses, always go for as low F-stop as possible, because they are faster.

  • Get a good zoom lens, they are useful when you don’t want to change them a lot.

  • Get something similar to similar to a 50mm on a full-frame, they are in general the best for shooting, and you can usually get a good one for not that much money.

  • Get a wide one, but not so wide that it becomes a fish-eye. They are very good for landscape.

Other cool lenses are:

  • FIsh eye lenses. They are not “good” for anything, they are just cool

  • Macro lenses. They are awesome to take pictures for tiny things like flowers and bugs.

I always say the following. Invest in a camera system you will stick with. So that you can bring your lenses and other camera gear from one camera body to the next one.

Visual Studio Code

05.05.2015 02:00

I really hope this is the end of having to use a VMWare Virtual Machine to be able to do most ASP.NET C# development.

Because, that is one of the reason the C# projects I have done in the past have been a pain to complete. I’m going to play around with VS Code in the coming months.
