Episode 505: I Was Kind Of Zoned Out

Daniel and Manton talk about Manton’s trip to Portland, Oregon for the Micro Camp meetup, and celebrate Manton’s completion of the final draft for his Indie Microblogging book. They talk about Daniel’s latest update to FastScripts, including regular expression utilities, and how Manton has employed them for his book authoring workflow. Finally they touch on how to decide between including features for free vs. making them part of a premium upgrade purchase.
