Apple’s mail client has an annoying limitation: If you want to export mail messages as
.emlx you have to do it one by one, i.e. dragging one message at a time from the Mail App’s window to a Finder window. It won’t let you drag several messages at the same time.
However with a small script this limitation can be circumvented easily. (This is Part II of the other Mail Export post.)

This is a small follow-up to my content blocker comparison from September 2015.
Quite some things have changed since then. Continue reading Safari Content Blockers for Mac and iOS
OS X comes and always came with Apple’s Mail app. And since I can think many folks are complaining about the shortcomings of this app. While I always thought this was exaggerated, I wasn’t enthusiastic about Mail either. Continue reading Back to Apple’s Mail
Jetpack is Automattic’s widely used mega plugin for standalone WordPress installations. Amongst others it brings features from wordpress.com to wordpress.org installations. Currently it comprises 36(!) modules that can individually be activated or deactivated.

Bloom Built’s Day One for iOS and OS X was a very good and polished journaling (diary) application that I used with pleasure.

These are macros for the magnificent OS X macro environment Keyboard Maestro 7, a highly recommendable program.
Basically the macros were just an experiment to see how well Keyboard Maestro works with Swift scripts. (Running Swift scripts is a new feature of Keyboard Maestro 7.) And it works quite well, I find.
The first macro gives also a nice example of conditional and value-remembering pop-up menus in the user prompt. (I discovered this only recently.) Continue reading Timestamp Macros for Keyboard Maestro
The new iOS 9 opened the door for third-party content blockers for Mobile Safari. A couple of days ago the first blockers appeared in the iTunes Store and the list is growing longer.
The “problem” is that almost all of them receive great customer ratings in the store. In no time I had downloaded a bunch of them (too many…) and still didn’t know with which one to go.

This AppleScript script is very handy for the creation of different type of archives and disk images.
It’s one of those scripts I use almost daily: It’s sitting in the Scripts menu in the menu bar and from there it allows me easy access to important and useful archive and disk image formats.

Updated Compatible with Mac OS X 10.10, 10.11 and – now finally also – macOS 10.12 (Sierra). :
The script can create these archive/dmg types:Continue reading Archive Assistant (Script)
