Sciral Consistency update: Remember flexible tasks
Gordon Meyer | Nov 13 2007
Sometimes surprises come from unexpected places. (Um, I guess that’s part of why they’re surprising.) Case in point, yesterday I opened Sciral Consistency as I’ve done several times a day for the last five years. This time, however, something happened that hasn't occurred since sometime in 2005. A notification window announced that a new version of the application was available for downloading.
I seriously thought that it must be an error. I had just moved all my files to a different computer and perhaps a bit or date stamp got munged,. But, no, there really is a new version. I, and some other Consistency users, thought the application had been abandoned, but now there’s a shiny new Universal Binary version. (There’s also a new version of Windows users.) It’s like Christmas before Thanksgiving! But in a good way.
If you’re not familiar with Consistency, it’s a useful way to keep track of re-occuring tasks that need to be done regularly (or, ahem, consistently) but not on a firm schedule. For example, Consistency reminds me that I need to water the house plants every 3 to 5 days, clean the Ionic Breeze air filters approximately once a week, and that my dog, Scooter, needs his nails trimmed approximately monthly. For more on using Consistency, see Merlin’s post from 2004 and a related post at my blog.
