IDEA: More against distraction
« on: April 17, 2006, 04:01:17 PM »
A while back, I posted (http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2553.0) about a discussion on 43Folders (http://www.43folders...against-distraction/) which introduced a few simple Mac programs for dealing with distraction.  The brilliant Skrommel produced FadingTaskbar (http://www.donationc...x.html#FadingTaskbar), which does the job of MenuShade brilliantly.  Many thanks!  I've just discovered MinimOther, which I think will be very useful also!  Now I'm wondering if the great S or some other genius could make a version of Backdrop (http://www.johnhaney.com/backdrop/).
