In late 2013, Lightroom 5 was $149, I paid ~$80 for Edu pricing.
Lightroom 6 will probably have similar Edu pricing (but I’ll be damned if I could find out how to buy it anywhere).
This time around, for Lightroom 6, I elected for a year of Adobe Creative Cloud for Photographers, which includes Lr Cloud shenanigans for photos and Adobe Photoshop for $9/month. “You fool! You’re renting software!” says the dweeb in the corner with his Vic 20 and Mac LC III, “You should buy the software and own it!” but at this price point and the fact that I will either certainly upgrade to Lightroom 7 or switch to something else entirely, I’d be a fool not to leverage the Creative Cloud Photography tier and you probably would be too.
PS Flash still sucks.

Nice timeout before relaunch, GitHub. Just endlessly launch your crashing launchd job, that’s not completely stupid and obnoxious.

Huh. 73,627 crashes of your stupid launchd job.
In three days.
Octocat’s gonna need a new name, on account of I’m mercilessly beating the mutant mascot to death with one of those tentacles right now!
I love Fantastical for iOS and the new Fantastical 2 for OS X somewhat ironically manages to gracefully bring the small-screen experience of Fantastical to OS X terms. Calendar and Reminders on OS X are not weak spots compared to others (Contacts, for example), but yet I quickly fell in love with Fantastical in under 60 minutes before buying it in the App Store.
Beautiful Pixels has a good write-up that covers some of finer points of Fantastical especially the language processing that makes creating appointments so much easier:
Fantastical’s biggest feature in its iOS and Mac apps has been its Natural Language Parser (NLP) that lets you create new entries using common language. This has been greatly improved in this release, letting you enter strings like, “Remind me to Pay the Credit Card Bill on the 4th saturday of every month” and Fantastical 2 will know exactly what you want to be scheduled. There’s better support for iCloud reminders as well in this release, as Fantastical 2 lets you view your events and reminders together in a single list.
