Texter, Fast Wordpad Replacement

Texter, Fast Wordpad Replacement

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); If you are looking to replace the standard Windows text editor Notepad you find dozens of popular replacements, like Notepad++ or Notepad2. Wordpad replacements however are less common, probably because most users tend to install and use an Office suite such as Microsoft Office or LibreOffice (the former OpenOffice), and have no need for an extra program to replace Wordpad. Wordpad is almost as fast as Notepad, and offers rich...

Thunderbird Mute Thread, Ignore Email Discussions

Thunderbird Mute Thread, Ignore Email Discussions

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); When it comes to email discussions with multiple participants, it sometimes happens that the discussion takes a turn that is no longer of interest to individual users. This can be a discussion on a mailing list for instance, where other members of the list discuss specific topics. Being part of the mailing list however means that those emails arrive in every user’s inbox. It also means that all users have to deal with the...

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...

The KDE 4.5 Semantic Desktop

The KDE 4.5 Semantic Desktop

My last article I spoke about the new KDE Activities features Search and Launch Containment Activity (see my article “Using the KDE 4.5 Search and Launch Containment Activity“). This is the first visible sign of KDE’s use of the Nepomuk Semantic Desktop. Nepomuk is a system that uses metadata throughout the desktop to aid in file search and peer to peer collaboration. So far the project has yet to reach its full potential (as it is quite new to the desktop). Strigi, on...

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...

ThinkTank is Now ThinkUp

ThinkTank is Now ThinkUp

Naming products is hard. After weeks of brainstorming, teeth-gnashing, hair-pulling, trademark searching, late-night strikes of inspiration followed by crushing morning realizations that the idea sucked, I’m thrilled to announce that ThinkTank has been renamed to ThinkUp. It’s our Firebird-to-Firefox moment. Rebranding is difficult, but the most heartening part of this process was that the ThinkUp idea came to us via the app. @markwallace responded to Anil’s call for...
