Web excursions brought to you by MightyDeals.com, featuring great deals on software, training, and design resources.

watch.rb modified for Jekyll
Ian Gable made a quick mod to my watch.rb script to make it work better with static site generators that are modifying multiple files at once. It allows you to watch a single file for changes so you’re not triggering the update script repeatedly.
Use MailMate Rules to Easily Create OmniFocus Tasks From Flags
Perfect. This is the system I had going with Mail.app and I’m excited to get it running again with MailMate.
typing.io - Typing Practice for Programmers
Good practice for those brackets and parenthesis that I never got good at typing quickly. Step through lessons in JavaScript, Ruby, C, C++, Java, PHP, Perl, Haskell, Scala and more.
Markdown to Evernote beta testers needed
If you use both Markdown and Evernote, Martin Kopischke needs your help testing a completely-rewritten version of his Markdown to Evernote Service.
Focus@Will
From Systematic listener Gabriel Pagan, a great service with a mix of background music to help you concentrate. Something to fit everyone’s needs.
