I've started using Mutt again as my primary email client. Or at least as my first email client. I use it to tear through mail quickly and respond to the easy messages. For things with attachments, HTML-only, or other annoying bits, I fire up Mailplane. It's a neat combination.#

I'm very happy with the process and results of using Fargo to create this Snippets "noteblog". I just wish I could decide what it's for. Based on the past week or so, it looks like I'm creating a simple feed of links. Problem is, I already have one of those. I also have a blog, so when do I post short notes here and when there? Still thinking through it, but I'm leaning toward only longer or "fancier" posts on and shorter ideas and things here. We'll see.#

I miss things. Sometimes I believe it's because those things were better than what we have now. Other times - today for example - I think it's simply because I've stopped growing.#

Seriously, how many apps do I need to use every day? Seems like dozens, and all of them make me log in constantly. 1Password helps, but only a little. I am still interrupted at every turn. Had to link to Dropbox, again, just to post this. It's exhausting, and that's web apps. Mobile apps are even worse. Also, desktop apps don't have this problem.#

I own an awful lot of writing tools for a guy who doesn't write much#

I was asked about a dozen times last night, "So, what do you do?"#

My answer was uniformly weak and terrible. In my usual fashion, I undersold the value of what Fusionary does. I need to work on that.#
