Links of interest from April 26 through May 1:

Vico Editor
With a little more polishing (and better support for existing TextMate commands), this little editor is primed to take TextMate 2.0 off of my wishlist. Vim keybindings, extensibility, split views and a good-looking interface.
Simple podcasting with Skype on OS X
I love scripted automation.
Extending Your jQuery Application with Amplify.js
Excellent tutorial on setting up subscriptions and requests in a jQuery application using Amplify.js.
Apprise - The attractive alert alternative for jQuery
Nice alerts and dialog boxes in a small jQuery package.
[awk] Command line calculator using awk
A neat trick, and better than my previous command line calculator solution…
