VoodooPad 5: wiki magic

VoodooPad 5: wiki magic:

For those of us who nerd out about things like desktop wikis, VoodooPad 5 (from the creator of Acorn) is an exciting release. It brings new capabilities so powerful that they should come with a "for good, not evil" warning.

If you're not familiar with VoodooPad, it's a desktop wiki with media embedding capabilities, a scriptable interface and a lot of power under the hood. Whether you want to use it for note-taking, project management or even maintaining documentation and live websites, it's a powerhouse. We may have mentioned it once or twice before.

What's so great about version 5? First, Dropbox sync is greatly improved. You can even share docs with multiple people and see who edited what, when.

For those of us of the Markdown persuasion, there's a new page type specifically for Markdown, with editing features and syntax highlighting.

If you build large documents -- say, a documentation project for your software -- you can publish the entire document as a PDF or ePub book. There's a new feature called "Collections" that lets you create tables of contents and determine page order, which makes the export features much more useful for more linear output formats.

We've always been able to do fun things like write event scripts that search for certain @tags and compile them, but the new To-Dos palette offers a faster, customizable solution for this.

There are more flexible event scripts, new scripting language support (including the ability to write scripts in JavaScript). There are even "scriptlets," your own small scripts that can be embedded directly within a page.

There's plenty more, as you can see in the release notes. VoodooPad 5 is available in the Mac App Store for US$24.99 (limited time price), or directly from Flying Meat's store (same price).

iTunes Movie Trailers

Watching movie trailers is a great way to see what's coming out in theaters and also builds excitement for DVD releases.  I am a particular fan of trailers in the way they are produced.  A good trailer actually becomes part of the whole movie watching experience.  Well now you can get all the latest trailers in one very well designed app.  The iTunes Movie Trailers app for iOS is great. It has a Top 25 list as well as Movie backgrounds and more.

Back to MarsEdit

Screen shot 2010-12-18 at 9.53.47 AM.png

So here is another post about how a blogger is blogging.  I am a squarespace user and I really love the carefree platform, but i can't really get used to the online interface for post writing.  I have been trying differnent tools and I tried MarsEdit early on and found it ok, but not great. But now MarsEdit 3 is pretty good.  So I will try it for a while.

Hopefully this is the writing tool I've been looking for.
