Because of the recent changes to the Tumblr API their own tool to backup your Tumblog isn’t working anymore. But there is another way to backup all your content - at least as a webarchive:

I am constantly surprised by how many people don’t know how to print envelopes with their Macs or try to figure out how to do that with Word and therefore I receive mails on a daily basis of people asking me, why Write does not offer such a feature.
So – here’s the thing: Write does not need to have such a feature. Your Mac can already do that.
The Address Book App may be ugly – but at least it is quite good at printing envelopes and mailing lists.
Just select a card (or a group) and use the print command and select what you want to print out and hidden under the details tab, you can even fine tune every aspect …
Rest assured – I was as confused as most of you.
What happened to the size inspector? How to edit ScrollViews, and TextViews? But there is a simple trick, to get the old and much more useful behavior back.
Xcode 4.3 and above automatically creates projects with the new Cocoa Autolayout API enabled now. The moment you disable it in the XIB settings – everything will be fine again.
There is also a small example on that new API available from Apple:
Open the Terminal and type in:
chflags nohidden /Users/Michael/Library/
Of course you should replace Michael with your account name :-)
Today: Drag-and-drop of Text Snippets
To most of us copy-and-paste is like breathing (you may call us Generation CandV) - we could not live without. I actually wrote my thesis on a typewriter; long time before cmd+C, Wikipedia and cmd+Z - but thats a different story…
Back to copy and paste for the Wacom and Trackpad user:
Often it is even faster to simply drag-and-drop text. Yes - with your Mac you can do that. Just select (highlight) the needed text range, click into it, wait for a very short moment and drag it onto the desired text view, text field.
This even works for Safari…
I guess it will become a running gag that with every new update the Twitter App will have a new and even uglier icon.
Want the old black one back?
Well, it is still available in the App Bundle - just open it and replace them. And better keep it for later…
