Evernote

evernote-logoI have been using Evernote for the past three months, and it’s been a great application to work with.  What I like about this application is that it can be used from the web, Windows, Mac, of your phone.  They are going to even have support for the iPhone.  I have been using this at work to keep track of a project that I am working on, and it has been invaluable.  I can be anywhere and log into Evernote, and look up contact information on the vendors that I am dealing with, or look at schedule times.  What’s great about using the client versions for the Mac or Windows is that you can synchronize it back with the web version.  This way you always have the latest information available to you.  

Right now they are in Beta, and they are only signing up people that have invites.  I currently have eighteen invites left, so if anyone is interested you can leave your email address in my Evernote Facebook Group by clicking here.  Or if you prefer you can twitter me with your email address by clicking here.  Once you are on Twitter, just type @glagana, and I will then receive your email, and I’ll send you out an invite.  For both services you will need to sign up for an account to use them.  I am doing it this way so that your email will not get spammed by leaving it in the comments section.  I will be sending out invites on a first come first serve basis.  Once all eighteen are gone I will post it immediately.  Below is a video from Evernote, which highlights a lot of its features.  You can also checkout their website by clicking here.

Firefox Tip #2 for Windows

firefox-logoA few weeks ago I posted on how to autofill in a .net url in Firefox for Windows. Today I will show you how to autofill in a .org URL. In the URL field type the partial domain name, for example blender; then, press Ctrl+Shit+Enter now it will autofill in the full .org URL. Your final URL should look like this – http://www.blender.org

Firefox Tip for Windows

firefox-logoWith today’s browser’s you can type in just the name of the site without the .com extension, and it will auto-fill it in the .com for you.  We also all know the Ctrl+Enter trick.  This is where you type in just the name, for example – wordpress, then you press Ctrl+Enter, and viola the browser fills in the complete web address for you.  Well, with .net addresses you generally have to type in the name plus .net.  Firefox 2.0 for Windows has resolved this issue for you.  When you press Shit+Enter the browser will fill in the complete address, but it will fill it in with .net and not .com.  I have tried this in Internet Explorer 6 SP2 and 7, in both browsers it does not work.  If you have a browser tip you would like to share, be it a Windows or Mac Internet browser tip, drop a note in the comments section.
