There a lot of open source software for Mac, too, and I frankly does not use any software on this list. In fact, the POSIX nature of Mac OS X means that the majority of open source software on Linux are also available for OS X.
Disclosure: No relationship to Jetbrains other than being a happy customer who paid "full wack". I do wish they'd improve their support though. My experience has been it's mostly crickets for a while before you hear back.
So tldr ... pricing for all non-essential goods is a game played by the seller and buyer. No one should be upset :)
They've dramatically reduced discounts since they introduced the Community edition. I can't blame them, tbh. Try the CE, it might be enough for what you need.
I hardly even thought to make the distinction. These days, for technical topics anyway, the "e-" prefix is just as optional for "book" as "mail".
No, it's not. If you sell me a book, and it turns out to be an ebook, that's a scam, and I'm getting my money back. Technical topics or not.
Please note that the discount on the bundle (paperback and digital formats) is about 48%, due to the coupon limitations of Shopify. For full disclosure: we currently have a small discount for everyone, and the coupon adds 40% on top of that.
Not a dev tool per se, just a general purpose app that may come handy as a part of the development pipeline. Here's the Show HN I made several months ago - https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8027405
The annotated UI pagers on the homepage are neat.
I was looking at transferring dozens of domains from GoDaddy to NameCheap today. Their deals ended at midnight east coast. I'm in Los Angeles.
Don't know if the domain transfer deal ran for a specific sub-segment of the day, which means I would have missed it anyway. I thought I'd just highlight that ending online deals at midnight east coast makes little sense. Particularly on a day when people can be very busy during the hours that brick-and-mortars are open or, barring that, if they happen to be enjoying time with family, which may have bee the primary purpose of travelling for the holiday weekend.
In other words, be smart about how you make these decisions while at the same time being considerate to the customers you are trying to attract.
Also, one hour deals? Really? I probably have over 50 domains still left at GoDaddy. Do I really have to get that done in one hour? It almost guarantees that some will not be transferred until next year.
Not ranting, just voicing an opinion. I could be wrong.
Which technical books have you recently read that could appeal to the HN crowd?
It seems to get mentioned EVERYWHERE, but it offers nothing compelling.
I fixed that for you, you forgot for a moment that your subjective ranking of software features is not a perfectly objective metric that holds for all humans.
Personally, I prefer Daisy Disk because it it fast, well designed, and I find it easier to reason with its representation of space used.
I'm looking at it for some extra performance over VirtualBox, and so far it seems to deliver.
