Google Analytics

I’m testing out Google Analytics. I just installed it, so there’s not too much data gathered yet. It looks to be interesting, and if it proves itself I’ll post more about it.

When in doubt, SkypeOut

The past several days I’ve been having severe trouble with my cell phone at my new place in Bartlesville. It’s probably been this way the entire time, I just haven’t used my phone enough to notice it until a few days ago. AT&T will flat out not keep a connection longer than 10 minutes. What […]

With the release of Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron a week or two ago, I thought I’d try it out. I’ve been casually playing around with Linux for quite some time. I think the first version I installed was Mandrake Linux 8.0, back in 2001. Anyways, I like to see what’s new and how much Linux […]

Internet TV: Joost

If you have a broadband connection, you can probably watch TV over the internet. I have a media PC set up in my living room that runs Joost. While the programming may not be *quite* prime time just yet, it does provide some good entertainment. When I first joined about a year ago, Joost only […]

Skrbl

A friend and I used the free online whiteboard sharing app Skrbl the other night to discuss some programming ideas. While it wasn’t perfect, it was useful. There are probably better applications out there, but in a quick fix when two people may not have the same software installed or want to install extra software, […]

Online RegEx tester

This looks very promising. You can type in regex expressions to see what gets matched in the text. I’ve never been too good at regular expressions…by the time I figure out what I need, I could have just retyped the whole document. That’s no excuse not to learn it, however, and I think this website […]

Remember the Milk after a few days

Ah, I’ve recently found something that makes rmilk so much better: keyboard shortcuts. I’d always get a little frustrated when I’d have to edit a task and it’d switch to another task before I could get finished. Keyboard shortcuts will make that a lot easier. The only problem I have now is that I have […]

Good Things: Violet UML Editor

Recently I’ve been using the free, tiny Violet UML Editor for class programming projects, but it’s simple enough to use that I think it could be useful in many applications where a flowchart might be needed. I like that the program is just a simple java “jar” file that can just be executed right from […]

Remember the Milk

I’m trying out Remember the Milk. I don’t really know if I want another time management tool in my life, but we’ll see. So far I really like how you can type in fuzzy dates and it gets them right. 🙂

Good Thing: Don’t Break the Chain

I’ve been using Don’t Break the Chain to bring in good habits and get rid of old habits. It’s a website that helps you keep track of what you’re doing daily. For example, I want to do sit-ups every night. If I do my sit ups, I mark off the day. After a few days, […]
