#37: Status, Fluid and Menu Bar Apps

Fair warning: this screencast is fairly Mac-specific and I ramble on about all kind of random non-web design related stuff. I introduce the new web app Status that I've been working on. Then I show Fluid, which is a Mac app for creating site-specific desktop applications and create one for Status. Then while I was on the subject, I introduce a few other Menu Bar applications that I find indispensable.

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like ```this```. You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you.

Sadly, it's kind of broken. WordPress only accepts a subset of HTML in comments, which makes sense, because certainly some HTML can't be allowed, like <script> tags. But this stripping happens before the comment is processed by Markdown (via Jetpack). It seems to me that would be reversed, because after Markdown processes code in backticks, it's escaped, thus safe. If you think you can fix this issue, get in touch!

If you need to make sure the code (typically HTML) you post absolutely posts correctly, escape it and put it within <pre><code> tags.
