Web Excursions for January 20, 2014

Web Excursions are select bookmarks from my travels around the interwebs, because I'm always thinking about you while discovering other people's cool stuff. You mean that much to me. You can see all of my (public) bookmarks on Pinboard, and visit the bookmarks archive for curated lists across the last few years.

Web excursions brought to you in partnership with CleanMyMac X, all the tools to speed up your Mac, in one app.

Time Warp
OneThingWell reminded me of this tool that I haven’t tried yet. It uses a smarter algorithm to determine which Time Machine snapshots should be deleted when the drive fills, rather than just the oldest one. Dr. Bunsen is crazy smart.
Automate the Web - Zapier
Wow, IFTTT on steroids (plus paid plans). It integrates with and automates over 200 services. I tested GitHub → FlowDock, Dropbox → Pushover and a few others and it works really well.
Stick your landings! position:sticky lands in WebKit
This is an old post, but I just now realized that position: -webkit-sticky is now working in current versions of Chrome and Safari. Even in Marked
PowerMate Bluetooth
Switch your Sublime Text theme based on sunset/sunrise times for your location. I haven’t actually gotten it to work yet…
