Tips & Tricks  - 
 
I received a few AppShopper.com notifications of price drops this morning and found this site that lists 20 apps at a pretty big discount including many mentioned on MPU like TextExpander Touch, Launch Center Pro, etc.. I'm not affiliated with the site but thought it was worth noting.

Does anyone know how Scanner Pro and PDF Pro compare to the offerings from Smile software? Scanner Pro for $0.99 looks promising.

I also prefer PDF Expert over Smile's app.

I find that a lot of really powerful keyboard shortcuts use three-key combinations, but I'm finding I have a lot of trouble remembering keyboard shortcuts that use three-keys (other than Ctrl + Cmd + Del from my Windows background). I wanted to ask if anyone here has any tips on committing new keyboard shortcuts to memory (muscle memory and/or gray matter).

Is it advisable to get started in OmniFocus with only the iPhone app? I don't want to purchase the Mac app before version two comes out.

I downloaded the Mac app public beta, but it seems like that needs to be reinstalled daily and as a new user I'm not sure if the resources out there to learn OmniFocus (such as David Sparks' screencasts) are applicable to version 2. To be honest, I haven't gone any further than setting up the OmniSync server yet after installing the beta.

Anyone have any torrent invites they're willing to throw my way? I only occasionally torrent and Demonoid was the only site I needed for quite a long time. I'm mostly interested in TV, books, and audiobooks but it's good to have all the bases covered.

Is Command-C still the recommended app for sharing clipboard items between iOS and OSX? The iOS reviews indicate that there have been a lot of issues with the app in 2015.

Questions  - 
 
I'm looking to buy and/or build a NAS/Media server solution. It seems like the standard MPU solution is to buy a Drobo and run Plex. I'm open to that, but I wanted to see if there were any other good options as well. I'm hoping to scoop up something on Cyber Monday. 

This would be used by an Apple TV 4, 2 Macbooks, 3 iPads, and 2 iPhones to store/serve video/music and act as a backup for my family. I'd probably never have more than 3 streams running concurrently, probably at least 1 or 2 of those from an iPad from my children.

Is there a way in Plex to filter content by rating so my 12 year-old can't access R-rated movies on his iPad or is it an all-or-nothing scenario.

Well, according to this site's passmark http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+A10-7700K+APU and given the guideline posted on the support page I shared earlier, with that CPU you should be able to do a full-rtancode of  two 1080p/10Mbps streams and one 720p/4Mbps stream. 

As for sticking to OS X only, I don't see a particular problem, going with that DIY setup and linux. I'm running my Plex server on CentOS and a weaker machine. Granted I'm only usually doing 1 full transcode at any particular time so I'm ok with the underpowered setup.

That is a wonderful garment. One day I shall have one. A few months ago I was lucky enough to find a wool Boy Scout jac-shirt on clearance at the Boy Scout store for $28. It's not a Filson, but it is well made and much higher quality than most department store goods. I'm now thinking about buying a second one to add a few extra pockets, working epaulets, and maybe a back pouch, sort of a roll-your-own Mackinaw.

Hey, Cody, great video, nice music too! Here's my list:

1. Sheath Knife - Right now it's a Mora Classic, but I'd like to get something like a BHK Pathfinder, Cold Steel Trailmaster, or Randall someday
2 Stainless Steel Nalgene Bottle (I prefer this style over a military canteen)
3. Large diameter ferrocerum rod (1/4" or more, bigger than the lil' spark I keep on my keychain)
4. Paracord I usually have a few hanks of it in my EDC bag and can always scavenge it from boot laces or my keychain fob
5. Military-type poncho - good for rain, improvised shelter, gathering stuff like pinecones together, etc.
6. A good axe - I'd love to get a GB or Wetterlings someday, right now I'm still using an old Gerber, but at least it's better quality than the new Gerber junk.
7. Wool blanket - Maybe just because it's Winter, but keeping warm edges out a compass for me right now. Even with a good fire I'd want something to keep the wind out. Wool is better than a military poncho liner around fires and you can wrap it under the poncho somewhat if you need to travel and keep warm.
Alternate 1: Compass - I had a good quality Brunton, but I can't seem to find it after my move. Time for a new one. I also have a basic one on my keychain, and a tiny one in my EDC bag survival kit, but I'd rather have better quality if I have to rely on it.
Alternate 2: Small food kit - mostly stuff like tea, buillion, jerky,hard candy, and a couple of granola bars. Most wilderness survival situations are short-term so these would simply be comfort items.

Best Middle-Eastern food around - The Pita House offers fresh tasty food at good prices. They're not fancy--everything comes in styrofoam plates--but the taste of the gyro, falafel, hummous, etc. make up for it. They bake their own pita bread every morning as well make their own feta cheese, hot sauce, etc. They also have a decent little grocery section.
