bash tip colors and formatting
The ANSI/VT100 terminals and terminal emulators are not just able to display black and white text ; they can display colors and formatted texts thanks to escape sequences. Those sequences are composed of the Escape character (often represented by ”^[” or ”<Esc>”) followed by some other characters: ”<Esc>[FormatCodem”.

Now I just want to make a Slogger plugin that makes digest entries in Day One from the "what was I doing file."

How Broken is Discovery on the App Store? This Broken.
Much has been made over the years about how the App Store [could be improved](ªªhttp://furbo.org/2009/07/10/year-two/) forºº both developers and customers. Areas like [interactive reviews](http://www.fastcolabs.com/3037828/4-ways-developers-say-apple-can-improve-the-mac-app-store),[trial periods](http://www.cultofmac.com/151955/apple-hints-at-free-trials-in-the-app-store-with-new-itunes-terms-and-conditions/), an [App Store VP](ªªhttp://www.imore.com/editors-desk-vp-app-store) and [paidºº upgrades](ªªhttp://www.macworld.com/article/2048194/opinion-apple-needs-a-handle-on-app-store-paid-upgrade-problem.html) areºº all important. One of the key areas many agree is the biggest problem Apple has yet to [correctly address](ªªhttp://toucharcade.com/2014/06/02/new-ios-8-app-store-features/) isºº discovery. For small developers like myself, a potential customer’s ability to find your app on the App Store is critical. If customers can’t easily discover and download your software, your app (and indeed your business) has little chance of survival.

Astral - Organize Your GitHub Stars Easily
This is a great idea: tagging, sorting, and viewing all of your starred GitHub repos. I currently use a set of Pinboard tags to accomplish this, which is nice because I don't have to deal with the repurcussions (notifications) of starring everything. I'd love to see this integrated with a bookmarking tool of some kind… via [OneThingWell](http://onethingwell.org/post/103457644140/astral).

Viewport Sized Typography
Yes, Chris wrote this in 2012, but I'm just now finding time to play with it. The `vw` and `vh` sizing meaurements in CSS allow elements to size based on viewport dimensions. Played with it a bit and it's really cool in Chrome and Safari. I should probably start testing stuff in Firefox again...

SFTP, FTP and S3 in the Sublime Text sidebar (with ExpanDrive)
I love ExpanDrive for working with just about every kind of remote filesystem I ever run into (I especially like mounting Dropbox as a network drive on systems where I don't need my whole Dropbox installed). This tip for using mounted directories in Sublime Text works well (as well as any remote editing solution can). The background update lets you edit without waiting for the transfer on every save.
