[Tweet : nvALT]

Web excursions brought to you by CleanMyMac 3, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.

Hovercraft!
Turn reStructuredText into beautiful Impress.js slideshows. Check out the demo for a very impressive overview.
jdberry/tag
I’ve been working on this, but James Berry beat me to it. Command line tagging and tag search for Mavericks that’s way faster than using mdfind.
App Performance Supercharged by New iPhone 5s
Everybody loves charts. Interesting to see the iOS 7 wait times actually increased between the iPhone 4s and 5. The 5s is clearly going to be worth the upgrade for me… when Verizon decides it’s ok.
scripties/bin/tagsearch
A great little Perl script for more complex CLI tag searches than my little bash function does. Handles complex boolean searches with “+” and “-“ prefixes for AND searches and excludes.
Goldee App for hue
If you’ve sprung for the Phillips Hue bulbs, this looks like an awesome application for them. If only my wife and I got up at the same time…
