Much slower, in fact, than using the Google Toolbar/Send to Gmail feature, and emailing myself the same content to gmail.

Some thoughts about FoldingText FoldingText is a plain text productivity tool with some muscle. FoldingText is an innovative text editor for Mac created by Jesse Grosjean of Hog Bay Software. It is kind of a mashup between a markdown editor and an outliner, with a few other functions mixed in. It has several interesting and even tantalizing features, but also some significant limitations. Web Served, the finale: Congrats, you have a Web server! What’s next? Welcome, dear readers, to the final piece in our long-running "Web Served" series. Starting last November, Ars has been helping to shed light on the fun world of DIY Web hosting—we started with setting up Nginx on Ubuntu, and we've progressed to advanced application hosting with PHP and even Node.js. Along the way we've struggled with the command line and probably cursed at typos in config files. We've felt the incredible triumph of a simple "success" log file message and the crushing defeat of an error that appears to be happening for absolutely no reason.

Congratulations are in order—good job!
