Productivity Tips for Freelance Web Designers

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); It has been known that working as a freelance web designers is very different compared to any ordinary daily jobs. Sure they are no super agents like CIA or SWAT, but freelancers are people who have 100% freedom in accomplishing their work. For example, working from bed, toilets, cafes, Disneyland and feel free to name any locations you want. Point is, being a freelancer can be more challenging because given its freedom, it comes...

Better Explorer, Brings Tabs To Windows Explorer

Better Explorer, Brings Tabs To Windows Explorer

It came as a surprise to many that Microsoft did not improve Windows Explorer as much as other elements in the Windows 7 operating system. Windows Explorer basically had the same look and feel like in Windows Vista, with some marginal changes. With tabbed browsing becoming such a huge thing one would have thought that Microsoft would add tabs to the Windows default file browser as well. Better Explorer is not the first program that brings tabs to Windows Explorer. We reviewed Technorati...

WINE, USARE PROGRAMMI WINDOWS ALL’INTERMO DI UBUNTU

WINE, USARE  PROGRAMMI WINDOWS ALL’INTERMO DI UBUNTU

Molti sono quelli che usano assieme al classico Windows anche un sistema operativo Linux, ossia UBUNTU,  sia installato, sia come LIVE CD. Questa scelta comporterebbe una limitazione nell’uso di programmi ai quali siamo abituati e dei quali non possiamo fare a meno, esiste un programmino che permette, almeno in linea teoria, di far girare i programmi fatti per Windows anche nell’ambiente estraneo di Linux. L’installazione di WINE è uguale a quella degli altri...

DropIt Copies Files Based On Their Name And Extension

DropIt Copies Files Based On Their Name And Extension

There are basically two types of computer users when it comes to organizing files on a computer system. Type a sorts files neatly in folders based on type or other criteria while type b likes to put all files into one folder that is growing immensely over time. The ever growing single folder can slow down operations including the time it takes to display the folder contents or to locate a file in the folder. Manually sorting the files into different folders on the other hand can take quite...

Copy partitions with gparted

Copy partitions with gparted

I wanted to continue with the rescue theme, but since Partimage is limited in it’s file system support, I thought I would go another route. That route? Gparted. Gparted is an amazingly flexible tool that serves as a graphical partition editor built for the GNOME desktop environment. But Gparted can do much more than just edit partitions. One nifty trick I discovered it can do is copy partitions from one drive to another. It’s a bit time consuming but when you want a copy of...

Encouraging Diversity in Open Source

Encouraging Diversity in Open Source

My current boss and long-time friend Anil Dash explains how he and I–a guy who looks like a terrorist and a gay-married woman–prioritize diversity in the community of developers working on ThinkTank. The entire interview is worth reading if you’re wondering what the heck we’re working on, but here’s a tidbit: Q: How do you go about ensuring diversity in an open development project? If all comers are welcome… The same way any diversity effort happens,...

Monitor your network with iptraf

Monitor your network with iptraf

I am always looking for a good network monitor, and there are plenty out there. But in all my years of searching I have yet to come across a monitor as good as the tried and true iptraf. The iptraf network monitor is an ncurses-based IP LAN monitor (so it’s text-based) that is interactive and generates network statistics such as: TCP info, UDP counts, ICMP and OSPF information, Ethernet load info, node stats, IP checksum errors, and more. Now, the only issue with iptraf is that it...

Install Perl modules using CPAN

Install Perl modules using CPAN

If you’ve come across any software that requires Perl modules, you might have found yourself pulling out your hair, trying to figure out how to install those modules. You’ve tried downloading the source, only to find one dependency issue or another. You’ve searched Synaptic or gnome-packagekit high and low to come up empty handed. What you may not know is there is a tool specifically designed to help you install Perl modules. The tool? CPAN. CPAN is the Comprehensive...

Get your beat on with the Hydrogen drum machine

Get your beat on with the Hydrogen drum machine

All too often the musically inclined seem to feel a bit left out of the Linux, open source community. At least that was the way for a long time. And then came along a few new tools and a few recording-specific distributions (such as 64 Studio and Linux Multimedia Studio) and the open source music world was turned on its head. Now you see tools for recording, editing, sampling, and more. With Linux (and open source) you can create an entire symphony of music, without ever touching a real...

More Ways to Eliminate Cellphone Voicemail Instructions [Voicemail]

New York Times tech columnist/reviewer David Pogue continues his worthy war against unnecessary, money-grabbing voicemail “instructions,” digging up an actual elimination tip for Sprint customers and a few suggestions for everyone else. As most people know by now, cellphone voicemail systems offer “guidance” to callers on how to leave a message. You do it “after the tone,” you see, and sometimes you can even learn how to “send a numeric page.”...

Changing The Windows Setup Source

Changing The Windows Setup Source

You might have experienced a situation in the past where Windows asked you to put the original Windows installation CD into a computer drive to continue. This could have been the result of a system file scan or because of an installation of an additional software package. The cause does not really matter here but the problem does. Windows is storing the path of the setup source in the Windows Registry during installation. Changes in computer hardware can then result in an invalid path...
