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…

FYI – Librevault (Alpha Version) Data Synchronization App

June 8, 2016

I want to start off this post by saying, “If you are not a software tester, then do not install Librevault“. It is currently in the Alpha stages of development where instability can (and most likely will) occur. Reason I am posting about Librevault is to let readers know, and those with tech backgrounds know, that an open source data synchronization app, designed to keep files the same on different computers over a network, is in the works. Appears; when and if finalized, Librevault will be FREE and will give you an optional and automated way to keep files (backed up) synchronized (via peer-to-peer) across a network (even at home).

What is Librevault?

Librevault is a data synchronization app, designed to keep files same on different computers over the network.

Peer-to-peer file transfer

All data is transferred directly from one device to another without the need to upload them to other servers. You can use Librevault in your local network even if the Internet connection is unavailable.

Data encryption

All file content and filenames are encrypted using an industry-grade AES-256 algorithm.

All transmissions are performed using TLSv1.2

The hash algorithm is SHA-3


A FREE Tool That Allows You To Quickly Turn OFF/ON (and Schedule) Your Internet Connection

June 4, 2016

I have featured the tool InternetOff here on the blog before. Recently I noticed that InternetOff has now been upgraded to include a scheduling feature, which give you the ability to schedule your access to the internet. 

InternetOff allows you to quickly turn off the internet so that you can go offline. When you need the connection, you can enable the internet easily for some period (and it will be automatically turned off) or permanently in just two clicks. Besides the program lets you password protect and schedule access to the internet.

This tool is a great asset if you are on a metered connection (such as satellite); to shutdown the internet to protect your PC from potential security threats; to shutdown (and schedule) your children’s usage; OR, to simply shutdown the internet to avoid the distractions (such as notifications from email, facebook, twitter, etc…), so that you can work (offline) on other matters of importance.
