A Note As Regards To My Evernote Macros And The New Evernote Client Version 10
Evernote has announced their new Evernote client for the mac.
The new client has no applescript capabilities at the moment and since I rely on this for my Macros, none of the Macros will work.
Use the legacy app
If you are using any of my Macros or have some pieces of applescript in use, you should instead use the legacy Version of the app which is basically the last Evernote version with a slightly different name, but otherwhise identical features - including the scripting interface.
Because the app name changed, all my Macros are slightly broken. Everywhere it says
tell application "Evernote" it should now say
tell application "Evernote Legacy".
EDIT: Alternatively we could use
tell application id "com.evernote.Evernote" which seems to be working for Evernote 7.14 and the legacy App. I have not changed this yet.
Below are links to updated versions of my Macros that work with the new legacy Version of the old app.
Please let me know if there are any issues.

Evernote Rename Title and update Links Macro (Beta)
EDIT (08.10.2020) - Please note: A Note As Regards To My Evernote Macros And The New Evernote Client Version 10
This Keyboard Maestro macro can be used to rename the title of a note and subsequently update all Links in other notes that used to use the old title to link to the note.
How it works
You'd use it like this:
- Pick a note to rename
- Press your hotkey for the macro
- In the prompt enter the new title of the note
- Note the notifications for the macro: There is one at the beginning of the update of the links and one in the end.
- Wait until the macro is finished. Done!
Please note: Make sure before you use this that you have all your notes synced. I have observed some weird behaviors where only some notes got updated otherwise.
Also please note that depending on the amount of the affected notes this might take some time (3 minutes and more in my tests on around 3500 notes). Normally much less notes should be affected,and therefore much less time is needed, but I thought I'd point this out. So make sure that the notes are synced properly - esspecially between subsequent runs.
Just download the file and drop it onto the Keyboard Maestro App Icon in the dock, or double click the file. Afterwards you want to add a hot key trigger (I use
cmd + option + E) to it.

My current photo storage setup (2020)
I'm not much of a photographer. At all. But I do take photos from time to time and combined with the much better and much more frequently taken photos of my partner, there are memories to be preserved.
This is my current photo storage setup, short and sweet:
You can share your library with a significant other so that not only they see your photos, but you also have the option to save all photos from their library in your account as well. Combined with the "high quality" storage option you can make sure that no picture that has ever found it's way to Google Photos from either of you will get lost. It's a cost effective way (free) to have a cloud back up for all of your photos that doesn't clog up your hard drive. With, e. g. Backblaze you would have to keep the photos on your local machine or at least a connected drive.
Google Photos also makes it easy to share and search for pictures, which can come in handy from time to time.
Apple Photos + iCloud Drive
Whereas Google Photos only has a scaled down version, which is still enough for most purposes, my Apple Photos library has the originals and is generally more of a curated experience. If I would like to show photos from our recent trip to Kurouma, then I would show the album in Apple Photos, for example. This is the cloud storage I pay money for.
I use two different cloud services to make sure there are at least two different copies of my photos, so that if iCloud for whatever reason would eat my files, I still would have all of them in Google Photos. As an added bonus, I also have an additional copy of my partners photos, which is nice, too.
No local storage, yet
One of the big purchases on my list this year is a Synology storage solution, which will not only hold my pictures, but all the other things, too.
Right now, I do not have a local storage solution of my pictures but when the diskstation is purchased and with the photo station iOS app on our phones, all photos will be reduntantly available from Google Photos, Apple Photos and the NAS.
