  • Slogger update and BlogLogger fix

    Slogger has had a couple of small but important updates this week. You can update from GitHub manually or using git (if that's how you installed it). You can overwrite everything, but if you've customized your plugin setup, you'll need to move plugins around again to enable/disable them, overwriting with the new versions.…

  • Slogger 2 is up, wanna pitch in?

    I've posted Slogger 2 to Github. It's not finished, polished or perfect in any way, but I'm low on time and wanted to at least make it available if anyone wants to pitch in. If you have no idea what Slogger is or why anyone in their right mind would name something that, here's the origin story.…

  • Social Logging by any other name would have a better name

    I'm prepping for a very busy week next week, and I won't be able to put any more time into this project for a bit. I wanted to share it, though, so I present to you---in a beta state---Slogger.…

  • More automated logging: Gists

    Here we go again with the automated work logging. I decided I wanted to keep a record of my public Github gists in my log as well, with descriptions and links. I use gists a lot these days and they're a good indicator of some of the things I've been working on outside of my git repositories (which are logged separately).…

  • Git logger revisited

    I'm working out of NYC this week, and putting in a little leisure coding time this evening. I realized as my nvALT git logger note updated that I was only running the logger on my home machine and it wasn't logging things I didn't explicitly ssh in and pull down. I updated the script tonight to do a fetch before and include remotes when it creates the log entries.…

  • Scatterbrains: git as biographer

    This is another of my attempts at keeping track of my day in an orderly fashion. It's a pretty simple idea. Given that most of of what I do is stored in git repositories, my commit logs are my best bet for seeing what I've accomplished each day. I just needed to pull them together and bundle them up without having to think about it. If a lot of your work happens in git repositories and you make frequent commits, this might be of use to you.…

  • Log TaskPaper archives to Day One

    I wrote a while back about some Day One geekery, and shared the git wrapper I set up for bagging some of my larger commit messages to Day One entries automatically. Then Rob went and asked me if I could do something similar with TaskPaper, logging archived tasks to Day One on the fly. Had to try it.…

  • Logging with Day One, geek style

    I have long kept a journal--more precisely, a log--using VoodooPad with the Scratchpad scripts by Ian Beck. It's been a great system, but after years of usage it's started to become a bit cumbersome. VoodooPad can handle the load, but running the custom scripts is inconvenient on a document with thousands of pages. In the interest of trying new things (and fiddling away some time this evening), I decided to try switching the system over to Day One.…

  • A solution for scatterbrains

    As I've mentioned here before (see QuickQuestion), I'm a total mess when it comes to remembering what I was tinkering with late at night or early in the morning. By the time my lunch break rolls around and I want to hack a little more, I have to search through git logs and Spotlight's Recent Files just to figure out what I was working with and where I was at with it. Two days later, not a chance. Sometimes it even happens when I'm intent on completing a todo item and let something distract me…

  • Forget about it. Or not.

    I forget a lot of things. I forget how I did something, or where I found an answer, or where I put my glasses. I use technology to help with that to some extent, and Notational Velocity/nvALT are excellent at helping me find previous notes, assuming I bothered to take them.…

  • VoodooPad log navigation plugins

    These VoodooPad Script Plugins are the result of two opposing traits of mine: laziness and curiosity. Laziness because, well, why should I have to move my hand all the way over to my mouse to go to the previous day in my VoodooPad log? Curiosity because I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing in Lua and wanted to see if I could do something just slightly more interesting than my "Go to Today" script.…
