The Road Ahead Both of my parents were teachers, and for as long as I can remember they both encouraged me to do something in life that would help others. I figured being a doctor would be the most obvious way to do that, but growing up around a pair of teachers must’ve rubbed off on me. My venue wouldn’t be the classroom but rather the Internet. On April 26, 1997, armed with very little actual knowledge, I began to share what I had with the world on a little Geocities site named Anand’s Hardware Tech Page. That’s the short story of how I started AnandTech. I’m 32 now. But after 17.5 years of digging, testing, analyzing and writing about the most interesting stuff in tech, it’s time for a change. It’s important for me to stress two things: this isn’t a transition because of health or business issues. Even though I’ve been doing this for nearly 18 years, we’ve evolved with the industry. Over the past year I’ve transitioned many of my personal coverage areas to other ATers.
Software > Tips and Tricks for Keyboard Maestro Keyboard Maestro (4.3.1 at the time of original writing) is a fantastic macro program that I've been happily using (and beta testing) for years and for tons of different things. I won't list its features here, because there's too many of them (and you can find that list on its website) but I'm pretty sure that if you're reading this, you know about it already. I'm so used to using KM that it has become almost completely intuitive to me, but reading and answering questions on KM's mailing list, I realized that some things which are obvious to me aren't so to everybody. So I decided to share some of my experience with KM and compiled this list of tips and tricks. Updates: Keyboard Maestro 5 has been released in July 2011, with lots and lots (and lots) of new features. Contents General organization Organizing groups I use KM's menu a lot. The groups of the second kind are named the usual way (for example "Clipboard"). 6 In KM6 you can give icons to groups and macros, which is pretty cool.
