Post New Requests Here / IDEA: More against distraction
« on: April 17, 2006, 04:01 PM »
A while back, I posted ( about a discussion on 43Folders ( which introduced a few simple Mac programs for dealing with distraction.  The brilliant Skrommel produced 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 ( 

This is exactly what I wanted, Skrommel!  You are a hero!

I have used Word for ages and ages, since migrating from Wordperfect.  I run Portable OpenOffice ( from a USB stick when on the road, and that really is pretty good. That said, I think I would prefer to use one of the online word processors - most likely - when away from home and online.  In fact, if you have an always-on internet connection, using Writely might be a way to reduce system drag, since all you need to have open is your browser...

General Software Discussion / Re: Google Calendar LAUNCHED!

This seems really good!  I've been using 30boxes for awhile, and that's been great - but I think Googlecal might be even better.  Actually, the one thing that definitely makes it best for me is that it allows date entry in European style - i.e. 31/12 instead of 12/31 - a very simple tweak, but it makes all the difference to usability for me.  Backpack is going to have a calendar soon, which will probably also be worth a look.

Ah, changed skin and it works again!
