Tools I use

I have to earn my keep somehow. This is the perfect tool to track my time and make sure I'm billing fairly. At my first go-around at an agency, time keeping was the bane of my existence. Harvest makes it stupidly easy and I'm not wasting billable time keeping track of my time.
A Text Editor
How did I get along without Rdio? I'm saving money by only spending $10/mo or so on music. This is hope that the RIAA is pulling it's head out of it's ass and realizing that they are in 2012 and not 1944. My hopes aren't that high because generally speaking, they are a bunch of backwards asshats.
iChat, Skype, Adium
I prefer the native experience of iChat, but there are some private jabber servers I'm on that just work a bit better with Adium. I'm still using the "old" Skype, refuse to use the new one, and will to continue to do so until Microsoft somehow blocks me from using it.
My only other installed brower is Chrome, but I rarely use it
Twitter for Mac
It works well enough, although I seem to miss quite a bit of tweets from people.
GUIs are for pussies. Learn the terminal. Depending on the project, I'll use either Beanstalk or GitHub. They are both fantastic. I don't care what I use. I'm happy in either.
It feels so good to use a relational database and not have to bash my head against the wall like I do with MySQL.
This helps me not have to go to as many meetings. I can learn what I have to, respond when I need to, and ignore what I want to. It is perfect.
I love CloudApp. It is so handy. Just use it.
