  • Day One as project log

    I've spent a lot of time automating my Day One journal. Slogger and various other scripts keep it populated with my social and work logs. I recently decided to start logging my time better in general, so I've started using Day One "properly," at least part of the time.…

  • nvremind + Day One and more

    In case you missed it this weekend, I wrote a little script called "nvremind" (pronounced "nevermind"). It scans folders of text files for occurrences of @remind(YYYY-mm-dd) tags and triggers reminders for you in Reminders.app, by email, in Notification Center, or any combination of those.…

  • Most popular blog posts and other new shiny in Slogger

    If you're not already in the loop, Slogger is a "Social Logger" that pulls in feeds from a wide range of social services and creates entries for them in a Day One journal. It can run itself each day and create an automated collection of everything you're already putting out there on the Internet, including photos (Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, etc.), Tweets, music you listen to, miles you run, blog posts you share and more.…

  • Day One tags, Slogger lags

    Day One recently got real tagging in the iOS apps, and it will be on the Mac version soon, as well. Slogger has been dutifully saving tags for you all this time, but I got it wrong. I used "@tags" and not the "#tags" that the developers eventually settled on. I should have known Twitter would win in the end.…

  • Celebrate the Day One updates with a free copy!

    While my uses for it may be unconventional, I'm a fan of Day One for journaling and logging on Mac and iPhone/iPad. I've been beta testing new versions for both and am excited to announce they're finally available!…

  • 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.…

  • Automating TaskPaper to Day One logs

    This is just a quick post to mention a new idea I had while working on Marked today. I was, as usual, using TaskPaper to organize the project and track my progress. I use a different TaskPaper file in the main folder for each project I have going. The last script I posted is effective enough, and I should probably leave well enough alone, but I had to try one other thing.…

  • 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.…

  • System Service: Clip to Day One

    I'm enjoying logging with Day One right now, and getting geeky with it. To that end, I put this project together during the few breaks I've had over the last couple of days leading up to the new Engadget live blog launch today. The result is a practical proof of concept in the form of a System Service for clipping any text to Day One. I figured that this could actually be really handy for more people than just me, so here it is.…

  • 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.…
