    i actually saved my profile and all the pages of my blog and i'm probably gonna save my poetry threads from like 2013 too, but somehow locally saving 247 pages of an album thread sounds less feasible :P

    Just wanted to pop in and say hello! I stumbled into this hidden gem when the RSS feed magically exploded overnight. I'm loving the crisp, clean look of it all and can't wait to see what else is in the cards. Well done, @Jason Tate :clap::clap::clap:

    launch it on april fool's day, it'll be perfect
     
  5. Hahah. Where in those posts did you actually get led here btw, I'm curious? My thinking was anyone that follows my blog enough to begin with I trust and want here early and want to invite.

    Also, thanks!
     
  6. Heh. Great minds and all that.

    @Jason Tate Don't go into the AP The 100 thread until you're caught up and also prepared to see me having an emotional breakdown over fictional characters
     
  8. Oh no. Ok. I haven't caught up yet, having a movie night with the sister.

    Must. Avoid. Spoilers.

    Only one post, Super Bowl 50, out of the thirty or so that my RSS feed pulled had a link in it leading to the forums. I saw the link to a game day thread and thought it was strange, especially when I saw the URL. I'm glad you were cool about it when I cheekily pointed it out on Twitter, ha. I figured you wouldn't mind as long as I didn't go shouting it to the interwebz. :speakno:
     
  11. I think I am ... 1 back. Was gonna catch up this weekend.
     
  12. Oh now it's set in stone.
     
  13. That's what it was. I was curious. Haha. Great find. And funny tweet.

    Of course. I'm glad! I am being a little more brazen about it now as I move (quickly) toward the announcement. It makes sense to me to do this *with* everyone so much more than make it too hidden to anything.

    Anyone use Evernote? Started messing around with it recently, and the webclipper option has been pretty nice in regards to saving and archiving screenshots and links in different notebooks.
     
  15. Bloated crap! Hahhaa. I have strong opinions about how much I don't like Evernote. Shocking. I know.

    I stopped using Evernote a long time ago because it took so long to open that I would forget what I wanted to write down. Apple's Notes app works perfectly for what I need now.

    Hahaha... Lately I've been using it to keep all my AP tags and what not in for news stories as well. Lol do you have an alternative that you use that you prefer over Evernote? I've been using it quite a bit lately, but not fully ingrained with it yet to potentially try another alternative.

    Nice. Yeah I did like how all of that synced with my iCloud account, along with the fact that it was pretty straight forward to keep up with the little things I needed to. Haha ended up switching to Evernote just to go a little more in depth with the organization.
     
  19. Been using Evernote for years; I don't really use any of the advanced features, but it works great for syncing a bunch of notes between my phone and home/work computers.

    I just use the stock notes app on my phone haha
     
  21. Depends what you're looking to store.

    If it's links and bookmarks: Pinboard.com with Pushpin or Pinner on iOS, Spillo on Mac.

    If it's notes, the note's app is getting pretty good on iOS, but I use Drafts for all my quick notes on iOS. I store everything in text files on Dropbox and use my favorite text editors to edit any that I need wherever I am. I value portability and not being relia. I want to have everything, in a dead simple and easy to read format, anywhere I am. Evernote's proprietary app makes me too reliable on them not fucking it up (and I think they have). If everything is in flat text files I don't have to worry about that, I can open anything I want, anywhere. I use Editorial on iOS to view bigger text files. Textmate2 on the Mac. For lists I have actions set up in Drafts so I can, for example, open Drafts, type a band name, and hit the "append to Bands to Check out" action. Then it spits that text into the right textfile on Dropbox, and it's saved for me. I don't have to go find the right file, or open anything else, or do any searching. I can get in and out in only a couple seconds. Then on the Mac, Alfred indexes all my files anyway — so I can search through every note I've ever made with a keyboard shortcut.

    Once a week I go through my Drafts inbox and see if there's anything I need to do with my notes. If they're reminders or actions I push them into my task manager, Omnifocus, if they're notes for article ideas I put them in my article ideas file, if they're just funny quips or dumb things I wanted to remember, I either save them in the archive or put them in my DayOne journal.

    Oh, if you have to stay with Evernote, at least get Alternote for the Mac. :-)
