Start and Pause Backblaze with LaunchBar

Re: How to combine two actions together?

Just select the text and hold ⌘+Space longer and type "base" to find the "encode into Base64" action. Press enter to see the base encoded text. Then press ⌘+C to copy the text. Escape out of LaunchBar and paste the text... Done. Hope that helps, even though the answer is pretty ...

Open tweet link in Tweetbot for Mac

I created a simple LaunchBar action that takes a link to a tweet on twitter.com, such as m, and opens the tweet in Tweetbot for Mac.

Re: Show in Finder not working in Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

Thank you for this solution. Hopefully this won't be required when 10.8.3 hits, but it does the job now.

Re: Quicksilver switcher - A couple things I miss...

Thanks a lot! Now that I'm getting more comfortable with LB, I'm finding that a lot of the same functionality I loved in QS is also in LB. Getting to it is just a little bit different. I'm certainly liking LB more and more. I do miss the big juicy icons that QS gave me, though. I wish there were dif...

Quicksilver switcher - A couple things I miss...

Can I do these with Launchbar? - emailing Finder selections. I know how to bring the current Finder selection into Launchbar, but can I then...
