Rick Dooling just pointed me towards the Ruby on Rails project. It is an open source web framework that will allow a programmer to rapidly work though a project with less effort in minor semantics of coding. As it says, it favors convention over configuration. I look forward to digging in a little further, but this reminds me of when I first heard of PHP. This thing looks like it may have traction to go big. Who wouldn’t want to use this thing? It appears to be overtaking .net and Java deployments.

That led me to this random site called Quimble.com where you can get a survey up and running in minutes. Interesting site, supposedly built using Ruby on Rails.

Open Office business suite of productivity software has been updated from version 2.0 to 2.0.1 just eight weeks into the run. The minor update is primarily to fix a few things and add some nice improvements. It now allows an IT manager to control whether users have access to all componants by permitting custom modifications to the configuration menu, and allows you to either resume in a document at the cursor position where you left off (great for authors and the default) or at the start of the document (great for readers). Most significant of all, it now has a new mail merge feature!

They have added better support for bullets when opening Microsoft product’s files, added improved drag and drop OLE behavior in the Impress/Draw componants, and now allow you to configure your default font size.

As you know I am likely going to review Prentice Halls book, Point and Click for Open Office right here in a few days. I like it a lot thus far. When I review a book, I actually read it. I am about 2/3rds of the way through it … and I don’t know how carefully I will read the two chapters on Thunderbird and Firefox to be honest, so probably in a couple of days. My first take at this point is that it is a good book, especially if you are switching from Word, or giving the program to your mother, friend, spouse, etc. hoping that they will actually use it. For heavier users of Office products, it is too light to be honest. Still, a book like this is a good starting point for most people.

If you want to buy a copy please use my link so I get a few pennies for my trouble 🙂

I happened on to a very nice feature for WordPress that is available as a plug-in called Draftlettes. What it does is notify other users or non-users selected by you that a draft has been posted so that they can take a shot at it before it goes public. Very nice idea.

I needed to spell check a web page today. A little looking led me to this neat on-line utility that checks spelling and much more. It output the errors in alphabetical order with line number references. Very handy. It did not know common terms like Blog, however and reported them as spelling errors.

Sites like ours that take Paypal (see the donation link at the bottom of each of our pages) have long suffered from a misperception that we do not take credit cards. In fact, Paypal has for a long time permitted people without paypal accounts to complete there transaction using just a credit card — so go ahead and donate here if you wish :-). Anyway, a story on story on News.Com unveils a new plan by Paypal to offer a virtual merchants account that would allow buyers on a merchant site to complete a Paypal/Credit Card transaction without leaving the merchant’s site. The cost for the transaction is the same as the current cost, but there is apparently going to be a $20 per month charge for that. For any kind of volume at all, it just might be worth it.

Tired of guessing or using trial and error to see what font will work for a project?

Look no further. The STC Font Browser runs in your browser window, immediately shows the True Type fonts installed on your system, and lets you edit the text as well as size you’d like to preview. Happy fonting!

This site is totally free to use, you have absolutely no moral or legal obligations to help us continue.
There are however, some costs involved in running the site.

<random humor>
Plus Don's kid is a good runner and she goes through sneakers fast.

So if this site helped you find your way, perhaps you could consider contributing to our costs. Whatever amount you feel this site was worth to you would be just wonderful.
Use PayPal if you do decide to share and help us with the costs and in appreciation for our time and attention, or alternatively buy a book from our Bookstore..
