blimey, just caught up with this, and it’s an incredible read. Hayek, Radio Caroline, Thatcher, Institute for Economic Affairs… so many things. I really wish the BBC would get a non-Flash video player though.
That is a lovely story from the introduction to a Project Gutenberg ebook of ‘Paradise Lost’. 100,000 punch cards!
Tom writes everything I thought while reading Igor’s good Wieden+Kennedy blog post about “creative technologists”, only better than I would have done.
Deletes duplicate events, and more, from iCal calendars. Just what I needed after a big iCloud confusion. And it’s free.
A fascinating read, with loads of links to text and images from period articles and adverts.
In case anyone else found iCal/iCloud had duplicated many events, this free app appears to fix things just fine: busymac.com/utils/icalclea…
@katylindemann I’d have done better if I’d realised I should add my iCloud account in iCal. I’ve spent 2 weeks using local calendar instead.
@katylindemann I don’t use Mobileme, so no idea about that. I ended up with lots of duplicates and some *almost* identical calendars.
@pixellent Yes. Fixing iCloud clashes and confusions would be more bearable if iCal’s UI wasn’t so awful, and worse with every release.
A couple of weeks on and I’ve finally worked out how to use iCloud calendars in iCal. And got myself in a right mess. Hmm.
@designswarm Oh, I haven’t seen it then, sorry.
@designswarm Is this it?
@ianbetteridge Maybe he checked the Twitter backchannel? (Not that I’m watching.)
