Weight and Stuff Report – 11 February 2011

Up by another of those tiny bits today. The only trouble with tiny bits is that lots of them add up to big bits, mutter, mutter.

I’ll be in low posting mode for the next couple of days, as I’m working this weekend. :wah:

Skitch – Screen Captures for Mac

I’ve mentioned the nifty Skitch a few times before, most recently when it came out of beta last year. It’s still one of those things that I use regularly, and would miss if it wasn’t there, and I’m still happy to recommend it to any Mac user who’ll listen. Skitch adds editing, uploading and general sharing tools to the basic screen capture functions that are built into Mac OS X, and it’s well worth a try.

The app and the (quite nicely featured) basic service are still free, and that limited offer on the premium service is still on – $14.95 for a year, rising to $19.95 at some point.

I mention this today because they just gave me a nice little present – customers who paid for the Skitch Plus option before a couple of days ago have just been given an additional two years service for no extra charge. The email telling me this did ask if I’d mind spreading the word a bit, and as it happens, I’m more than happy to do that.[1]
