Monica is also open source on GitHub with an active community. It’s clear how this has […]
Our kids bathtub had a botched repair job by the previous owner that we discovered last November.

Reeder for iPhone. It’s the user experience of Fever with all of the functionality of Google Reader, including shared items, plus bonus features like Instapaper integration, save to Delicious or Pinboard, and offline syncing that. just. works. What’s more is that I can’t believe Gruber hasn’t linked it yet. A well-deserved hat tip goes to […]
