Recently I wanted to set up multiple profiles in Google Chrome. One for my personal browsing and one for my work. This way I don’t need to sign in and out from my different google, twitter, flickr and facebook accounts. There is no GUI for this and it involves running some command line but it’s […]
Pair Programming Timer is a simple (egg clock style) timer. You can use it when you are pair programming and need a reminder for when to switch driver. Today we released Pair Programming Timer 1.0. Download it from Sourceforge or visit the development blog!
I while ago I introduced a friend to Firefox. I didn’t want to push it but just show it and I hoped it would stick. After some weeks I asked if she liked it and she said it was nice but that she missed the tabs that IE had. I was amazed… Firefox were years […]
Today I tried the Gimp plugin Save for Web. You can select different file formats, scale and crop images. All with preview. It’s awesome!
Update: I used FFmpeg for some conversions but I just found out Avidemux and it seems promising! Trying it right away! Every once in a while I get my hands on a video file that I can’t play. Today when I wanted to watch a bouldering movie it failed. Not sure why. Maybe becuase my […]
If you want the Gimp toolbars to behave like normal windows it’s easy to change. Just select Edit / Preferences / Window Managment and change Hint for the toolbox and Hint for the other windows to Normal window.

I have been using a custom build CMS that’s really basic for a tiny site for some years. It has around 200 posts so it’s not a huge site but too much too migrate to a new host by hand. I have been using WordPress for some other sites and I really like it so […]
Songbird 1.0 is finally released! Lovely!
I usually use web based disposable e-mail addresses from Mailinator to avoid giving away my address. I have noticed that some companies don’t let you register using a Mailinator address. Today when I registered to download TimeSnapper (classic) I got this funny note. That made my day ^_^ Easy amused I guess. Thanks to Coffe […]
I have been playing around with Microsoft ICE (Image Composite Editor) some days and it’s really great for stitching several images to a panorama! The only thing missing is a way to open images in ICE from Picasa without needing to locate them in Explorer. I created a button that you can add to Picasa […]
Some years ago I wrote about how to create a Windows Rescue CD. Today I was stuck with a similar problem. I wanted to merge all data from one disk to another without needing to re-install my computer. My first thought was to create a new rescue CD that I could restore to my new […]
As a quick side note; I just found out about an option in Windows that allows to move the mouse cursor to one of the buttons in dialog boxes automatically.
Lovely! Ubuntu Hardy Heron (V 8.04) is now available on the official release servers! As the last time; roll up your sleeves and help seeding the files!
