What's in the show:
- Discovery of the week:
- Ctrl-Alt then drag-select with your mouse to copy a square of text in the command-line. Very useful for column views in screen and IRC.
- Feedly is the best replacement for Google Reader, so far.
- Distribute secret data to multiple recipients with configurable redundancy using Shamir's Secret Sharing Scheme.
- There's a few days left on the latest Humble Bundle, and it's worth it for Fractal alone.
- Auk - the bird family, is awesome.
