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...

Now Shipping: ThinkUp Beta 1

Hit a big milestone today! We released the first beta of ThinkUp, the PHP/MySQL webapp that archives your social media interactions in a database you control. Download it here. Following eight alpha releases over the past eight months, I’m so proud that the ThinkUp community and the software product itself has reached beta.

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...

Windows Live Sync To Be Rebranded In Windows Live Mesh

Windows Live Sync To Be Rebranded In Windows Live Mesh

Microsoft made an announcement back in June that the two programs Windows Live Sync and Live Mesh Beta would be brought together as Windows Live Sync Beta as part of Windows Live Essentials beta. The main goals of the project were to offer Windows Live Sync users with options to synchronize files to PCs and the Cloud, to offer easy access to PCs and document collaboration using SkyDrive. Less than two months later Microsoft made the decision to change the Windows Live Sync Beta name once...

Free Social Media Icon Sets – Best Of

Free Social Media Icon Sets – Best Of

With innovations of web-based technologies, social media is now everywhere, changing the way human interacts. Thus, demands for social media icons are raised within web community especially web designer who creates commercial site or theme. But hey, I know how it feels: you stumbled upon a nice social media icon set and click on the ‘Download‘ button and bingo! This stuff is not for commercial. Worse, you have to attribute back to the post wherever you use those icons, which...

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...

Google enters flights travel market

Google enters flights travel market

Search giant Google has made a surprise move into the travel business with the acquisition of  flight information firm ITA Software, as reported by the BBC.  The firm provides software that organises fares, flights and journey times.  These are then used by airlines, travel agents and flight comparison websites. Google have hinted that they may expand the features of the software to enable users to search directly for flight destinations, and with the company’s history of...

From Facebook to Diaspora

From Facebook to Diaspora

Diaspora is a distributed, open source alternative to Facebook that a few NYU graduates want to spend this summer building. They set out to raise $10,000 on Kickstarter, and on the strength of all the backlash against Facebook’s privacy problems, the project has raised over $175,000 as of writing. Good for them. There are a LOT of existing projects doing work in this area (like OneSocialWeb, DiSo, Activity Streams), but I’m ok with a new effort working both together and in...

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Introducing Todo.txt Touch: An Experimental Android App

Yesterday’s post generated some interest in an Android application that manages a todo.txt file, and I’ve got an itch to try my hand at a mobile app. So, I’ve just created a skeleton Java-based Android app called Todo.txt Touch. The source code is located on GitHub, and it literally does nothing right now, except list some faux tasks from an XML file. Goal is to get the app to read a todo.txt from Dropbox (and eventually, other configurable cloud sources), sort and...

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

Happy Birthday to the Shell Script That Runs My Life

On May 12, 2006, I hacked together my first bash script that was more than a dozen lines and published it on Lifehacker. todo.sh manipulated a todo.txt file at the command line using grep, tail, head, sort, and cat: all the shell-based text tools that I knew and loved. Back then, in Lifehacker’s heyday, I was obsessed with the simplicity and portability of text files, mostly because Danny O’Brien featured them front and center in his original life hacks talk. Since then, Todo.txt...

Mozilla Releases Account Manager Alpha For Firefox

Mozilla Releases Account Manager Alpha For Firefox

One of the annoyances that web users have to cope with on the Internet are different login systems to log in and out of accounts. That is, if they are not using a password manager like Last Pass that handles the login and logout for them. Currently webmasters and designers can create login forms that are fundamentally different from other login forms as there is no “login-standard” or login protocol that would standardize web logins. Mozilla’s Account Manager tries to...

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

Celebrate Ada Lovelace Day by Coding Something Meaningful

It’s Ada Lovelace Day and I haven’t had time to write up something profound about women in tech, because, well, I’ve been too busy coding. Appropriate, no? I’ve been jamming on ThinkTank, a new webapp that will help the White House crowdsource ideas for our country’s scientific and technological goals. It’s also one of the youngest, pluckiest, up-and-coming woman-friendly open source projects around. My partner at Expert Labs Anil Dash explains why: Besides...

However, there is always a flip side of a coin. What happens when if you are out of jobs suddenly? This following article is dedicated to designers and developers who wanted to achieve financial...

Windows Software Deployment With TGUP

Windows Software Deployment With TGUP

Computers that are bought in stores and those that are build individually do not come with software preinstalled usually. A few options are available to deploy software on those new computer systems like installing each program manually, using custom operating system setups that install applications during the regular OS installation or running a program like TGUP after installation that offers to install multiple software programs without user interaction. TGUP, which stands for The Great...

Current Crop of Smartphones: A Cost and Feature Comparison

Current Crop of Smartphones: A Cost and Feature Comparison

BillShrink hits it out of the park with a handy infographic which compares the cost and features of the current generation of smartphones: the Nexus One, the Palm Pre, the Motorola Droid, and the iPhone 3GS. Looking at this you realize 1.) there’s no clear winner in the bunch feature-wise and 2.) we all spend a ridiculous amount of money on mobile phones and service. My only nitpick with this chart is that the T-Mobile/Nexus One “Average Usage” plan should be listed...

The application formerly known as Twitalytic is now called ThinkTank, and I’m carving out some time in the New Year to grow it into something good.
