I made an easy way to take a geotagged photo and copy it's latitude and longitude and open that spot in a Google Map using either Bash (Terminal command line) or via Alfred. Check it out!
I made a nice Alfred workflow for searching through a folder of plain text file snippets that copies the contents and then inserts it into your current focus point. Additionally, it's easy to see, search, and set Mavericks tags on the snippets. Since the whole storage of snippets is done with the file system, it makes it really easy to add and edit the snippets with other means. Go check it out!
I make lots of little utilities often, so I decided to grab them all put them into a new utility section of the site! I'm happy they finally have a home :) Looking forward to making that list grow!
The Mad Scientist Brett Terpstra is at it again, this time with a nifty script for "Scatterbrains" that captures what you are doing, and provides an easy way to find out what it was once you get off track and need to mentally re-orient yourself when coming back to a project – super handy in my opinion.

I started a list of my favorite Alfred Workflows after someone asked about them, so I put them up on my site! I'm sure I'll add more as I go, but so far these are my favorites. Don't worry - it's not the full list of installed ones! :)
When you share an image (or any file) with Dropbox, it sends people to a page that wraps that file in an HTML page that is Dropbox branded. Here is an easy way using Alfred (with it's paid Powerpack) to get a link that links directly to the file. This is useful for using as the
src in an
<img> tag. I often use it in a wiki or a task management site like Jira or Redmine to show a screenshot. All we need to do is replace
dl.dropboxusercontent in the share link, like my friend Ryan points out.
Well, the new Review Section is more of a page at the moment as it's simply a list of products that I like a lot. I try and add a bit of commentary where needed. I've started with some basic sorting to break things into Outdoor Gear, Drinks equipment (apparently I'm really into different drinks...), and Tech Gear (though I don't have software recommendations – I keep those here). I'll keeping this one page up to date with the gear I'm loving; hope you get some use out of it!
I was having problems getting a list of Jekyll blog posts that had a specific property declared in the YAML front matter (a simple
featured: true) and limiting the list. If you do what I did at first:
I'm incredibly pleased to come onboard with one of the best Drupal agencies, Phase2! I'm looking forward to pushing my front end web development and responsive web design skills to another level, and I can't really think of a better spot than there. Being a freelance contractor allows a wonderfully flexible situation to work on the skills you want to grow, but once you know what you want to do, you want to do it with the best around. I'm excited to learn and share from such a passionate, driven team as Phase 2. Here's to my next phase! ;)
