Top Social Bookmarking WordPress Plugins

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Writing for a website used to be simple where all you need to do is produce high quality articles and your site will usually be noticed, rewarding you with a good amount of traffic and eyeballs. However, this could be an expiring ideology.

Easy Comment, Simplifies Blog Commenting

Easy Comment, Simplifies Blog Commenting

If you are like me, you have got dozens of tech blogs in your RSS news feed that you read on a daily basis. Sometimes, I visit those sites to leave a comment.

Leaving comments is a repetitive process; You visit the site, locate the comment form which is usually located at the bottom of the screen, enter your name, email, website and the actual comment.

View websites offline with WebHTTrack

View websites offline with WebHTTrack

There are reasons why you would want to view a web site off line. Say, for example, you know you are on the go and do not always have access to a network connection, yet you want to be up to date on the latest news. Or you are a developer working on a site and need to be able to make changes, or check a web site for bugs or broken links.  Or maybe you are trying to develop a new site and you want to loosely base your new site (all the while crediting the original site of course) on...

Point is, being a freelancer can be more challenging because given its freedom, it comes with a price. Price we are talking about is distractions...

Add desktop icons to KDE and GNOME

Add desktop icons to KDE and GNOME

Although I am one to prefer a clutter-free, minimalist desktop, I know the majority of users prefer a much more standard, fast-access type of desktop. This means icons. Not the kind of icons you see on many users desktops (you know the ones, where there are so many icons it’s impossible to make sense of what is there), but icons that allow you to launch the applications you use most often. With KDE and GNOME there are different ways to add icons. With one desktop, the process is...

Installing Enlightenment E17 using Subversion

Installing Enlightenment E17 using Subversion

A lot of developers use tools like this in order to allow testers and other developers access to the most recent versions of their software. In effect, installing from subversion always guarantees...

Sync your Evolution contacts with UbuntuOne

Sync your Evolution contacts with UbuntuOne

How many machines do you have? How many contacts do you have? How many machines do you try to keep your contacts in sync on? There are a lot of ways to do this. You could copy those contacts on a flash drive and move them back and forth, making sure you add the new ones when you make any changes. But that is far more complicated than it need be. OR you can use a contact syncing tool to make this process automatic. One such tool for Ubuntu Linux is Ubuntu One. UbuntuOne is not just a music...

60 Beautiful Minimalist Desktop Wallpapers

Use Top Shelf to keep track of what you are working on

Use Top Shelf to keep track of what you are working on

As a writer one of the most important things for me is to keep organized. This may seem like a fairly simple task, but when you are doing everything from researching a topic to piecing together a much larger work, having fast access to all of the particular documents you are working on can make the difference between efficient work and a catastrophe. There are many ways to keep yourself organized. I’ve seen writers keep spreadsheets, use tools like Basket or OneNote, scratch...

This Week in Google, Episode 47

Great conversation today on TWiG with our guest Chris Messina, who dropped knowledge on the history and differences between OAuth and OpenID–which in an age of “Facebook wants to own all your sign-ons,” is an important discussion. My tip this week: to grab the Android Swype beta within the next couple of days while it’s still available, as previously-recommended ShapeWriter is no longer in the Market.

xjed: Text editor with Jedi Powers

xjed: Text editor with Jedi Powers

Wrong. xjed is a text editor that was designed with programmers in mind. It’s an X11 version of the Jed editor which offers numerous programming modes with syntax highlighting (including Pascal, Java, Perl, C, C++, FORTRAN, TeX, HTML, SH, IDL, DCL, NROFF, PostScript, and Basic). xjed supports regular expressions, rectangular...

Docky: Another OS X-like Doc

Docky: Another OS X-like Doc

OS X users love their Dock..and with good reason. Not only is it a handy way to launch applications, it’s also rather stylish. I have covered a tool that had a similar look and feel before (see my article “Avant Window Navigator: OS-X like dock on Linux desktop“) and although that tool served it’s purpose well, at times it could be a bit buggy. Docky is a little bit different. Docky is really nothing more than a front-end for Gnome Do (for more information on GNOME...

The Evolutionary Reason for Depression

The Evolutionary Reason for Depression

If depression has an evolutionary purpose, it’s certainly not obvious. Depression makes people consider suicide and less interested in sex, which does not encourage the species’ survival. But two evolutionary psychologists theorize that depression’s purpose is enhanced mental skills. Sadness focuses the brain’s attention on a conflict, and makes you better-equipped to make good decisions. A fascinating New York Times magazine article entitled Depression’s...
