When I was getting started using Quicksilver I was always hearing about all the great things it would do, but it was a struggle to get it set up the right way to get at that functionality. In order to prevent that struggle for others I am including my basic set up.
I keep telling everyone they need to try out Quicksilver, that it is the most amazing app. Then they ask me what it does, and I generally say, “it’s hard to explain.” Which it is. Then I fumble around to demonstrate a few things that never seems to do it justice. I need Ron Popeil to pop out and say, “but wait, there’s more.”
