A Modern Screenshot And Capture Tool

September 17, 2016

Here is a screenshot tool, called CloudShot, that may pique your interest. I love screenshot programs and CloudShot stands out in that it has a modern interface that allows you to share your screenshots via cloud services like Dropbox/Imgur, upload to FTP, copy or just save it.  I also dug a little deeper on the site and found there is a portable version, as well.

FastStone Image Viewer – The Only Image Utility You Will Ever Need

August 28, 2016

If you are wanting something that is better than the viewer built into the Windows operating system, I encourage you to take a look at the FREE FastStone Image Viewer. This software utility is specifically developed to manage and manipulate images.  I have been using it for years and there has been no turning back. Recently, FastStone Image Viewer received an upgrade that gives you the ability to run two image viewers at the same time; drag and drop images between them; and, compare images from different folders side by side. This is only one of the many features of FastStone Image Viewer. Can’t say enough about this software…

HOT NEWS – Simplenote Now Open Source

August 13, 2016

With the changes taking place with Evernote, you may want to take a more minimalistic approach and try Simplenote. I was familiar with Simplenote and decided to give it a try to see if it would be sufficient for my note keeping. What I have found is a very fast and simple (text based) note keeping application, available on many platforms, that (so far) is getting the job done for me. I currently have (and use) Evernote and Microsoft’s OneNote, but what I am finding is that these applications are geared more for the student, the business person, or someone who has a need to collect and maintain a massive amount of information.  Simplenote is completely text based with nothing fancy; thus, it is fast.  I can search for a note, via a keyword, and have the note up before me at the blink of any eye. If you are looking for something to keep your notes, give Simplenote a try…

Another BIG factor with Simplenote, is that it now Open Source Software where (if you are a coder), you can gain access to the source code and essentially work your magic to make Simplenote even better.

Tweaking.com – Windows Repair

August 2, 2016

Often during a malware infection, the default settings on your computer can be altered to the point that your computer will not operate properly (even after it has been cleaned from an infection). A program to keep in mind, if this were to occur, is the Tweaking.com – Windows Repair tool. This tool is designed to help you automatically fix a large majority of known Windows problems.  The repair tool is available as a Windows install or can be run from a flash drive, as a portable app. I also see that they have a “pro” version available now; as well as, the free version. I have used this program on several occasions and it has bailed me out…
