Things, a task management app that’s still in development, does a great job letting users know about its unimplemented features. If you try to drag a task from a project into the ‘Scheduled’ area, for example, you’ll get this popup:
Every action I’ve performed in Things has either worked as I expected or popped up one of these helpful messages. That’s awesome! It feels good to know that they’re moving in the right direction and makes me more confident in their ability to make a great product.
Legions is a “spiritual successor” to the Tribes series which have always been my favorite games. I haven’t had much time to play yet but I’m hoping the game is good enough to capture the interest of the Tribes community if only for a little while.
The new JungleDisk beta is a big improvement over their current version. The backup features have been greatly improved and now that I’ve fixed my issue with Explorer locking up I can use it like almost like normal drive.
I’m still backing up my music and photos to a local NAS box, but I’m very impressed with the direction JungleDisk is going and will probably start to use it more (especially once the command line version is more mature and well documented).
Also, for $1/mo you can get JungleDisk Plus which gives you web access, resumable uploads, and partial file uploads. Very cool!
