Open Thread: Quicksilver podcast questions

Merlin on MacBreak: Intro to Quicksilver

The response to the MacBreak on Quicksilver has been enthusiastic to say the least. Thanks to everyone who's sent emails saying they now "finally 'get' Quicksilver." That's really cool to hear.

Based on lots of the messages, though, there's still lots of questions about setting up Quicksilver, loading plugins, and configuring things the way you like -- especially as seen in the video. As we've observed on the site many times, the ramp-up to full-on Quicksilver configuration can be a bitch.

I want to try and route all the questions and answers into this one thread if I can. So, there's a few links below that I [="Red"]REALLY[/] encourage you to explore thoroughly before asking questions (I swear most all the answers are out there), but if you have a question not answered, the 43 Folders hive mind and I can try to help you out. Ask away (after you've really really looked for the answer on your own, okay?).

My access over the next few days is limited, so any help from the Quicksilver studs out there is greatly appreciated!

Good Quicksilver links:

Quicksilver power users: feel free to chime in as well with your favorite links, tutorials, and responses to questions from the new folks. Many thanks in advance.

Merlin used to crank. He’s not cranking any more.

This is an essay about family, priorities, and Shakey’s Pizza, and it’s probably the best thing he’s written. »

Scared Shitless

Merlin’s scared. You’re scared. Everybody is scared.

This is the video of Merlin’s keynote at Webstock 2011. The one where he cried. You should watch it. »
