Ha, funny. Just stumbled across a new application called TexWriter. Most interesting feature to me is having the PDF display within the same window as the LaTeX code. Instantly reminded me of a quick UI-mockup I did some five years ago.

When I presented this very idea to members of a well-known LaTeX-mailinglist, I was told that showing output next to input was like “totally against the rules of TeX” etc.; would’ve done it anyway, if we had found the time, he.

So, best of luck to Jakob over at DeliciousCode! As one fellow poster put it way back when: Keep it up, I think you’re on to something here…


When Emulation Goes Too Far [Parallels]

parallels desktop do you want to quit

This is a dialog worthy of any Windows system, no doubt, but I wouldn’t expect the emulator to throw it up. Also, what happens if “do not show this message again” is clicked?

Will it quit without a warning, or will it just stay open?

Damn, this rocks [Layers]
