August 2, 2016

Took a little bit of a learning curve; but, learned how to use Snipaste in short order. Snipaste is a windows snipping (or screen capturing) tool that is different in the way that you would normally perform a screen capture that is typical of other similar software…

Turn Your Desktop Into An Infinite Blackboard

June 28, 2016

Don’t know if this would be any use to anyone (for possibly teaching, presentations, etc…), but is sort of neat. It is called Blckbrd and what it does is that it turns your desktop into an infinite blackboard. You use the mouse to write/draw, like on a real blackboard. If you are like me, writing words with my mouse (on the screen) is a difficult task; however, I’m thinking a touchpad would make it easier. The commands for Blckbrd are reflected below. The main one to remember is “ESC” (to exit the program and continue on with life).

Noticed A Feature In PangoBright That I Never Noticed Before

June 20, 2016

PangoBright is a simple to use screen dimmer utility that I have featured on the blog in the past. Recently, while sitting in my garage watching a ballgame, in the dark, and multitasking on my notebook PC, I needed something to tone down the brightness on the notebook. I remembered PangoBright and downloaded it. When I ran PangoBright it defaulted to a 70 percent screen brightness (which made me happy); but, I noticed something when I clicked on PangoBright’s tray menu. There is now an option to select a fade out color, which further makes this small (116k) portable utility valuable (in terms of reducing eye strain). This option was not there the last time I used PangoBright.

Oh, PangoBright does work on Windows 10…
