This is a promising project. The only thing I dislike about my beloved iMac is the placement of the ports on the back. It’s hard to connect devices by feel, so I end up turning the screen around and displacing things on my desk.
I cannot believe I just read something that combines two of my favorite things: farming and going paperless. Brooks Duncan and his work at Document Snap are among the best productivity-enhancing resources on the internet. Highly recommended. Brooks, if you see this, will you please, for the love of all that is paperless, create a foolproof Hazel or Automator process for batch converting Word documents to pdf? I can create automations to do amazingly complex workflows, but I have not found a way to create a reliable folder action (or a reliable Automator service) that will convert to pdf.
I love the specs of this new WD external hard drive. I don’t love the price, but it will come down.
Here’s a great article on using Google Drive to capture ideas and other data for later processing. I’m still mad at Google for killing Reader, but given that I’m all-in with their (now very affordable) storage, I might, just maybe, look at Google Keep again.
This is great news. Tucker and Dale is a hilarious movie.
Speaking of sequels, Christine McVie is back.
Can we all agree, once and for all, that ad-supported isn’t free. It’s just payment in kind (of time). I would much rather pay a little money than see (as in notice, much less watch) ads.

I am reading this and I will see what I can do! 🙂
Thank you, brother. I have set up many complex things with Hazel, much thanks to your excellent online Hazel course (which I bought and highly recommend), but this has been difficult. I can get Hazel to call an Applescript that is supposed to convert the documents, but Word opens and then stalls.
