  • Droplr is the Dropbox I’ve been waiting for since forever

    | Technology | no comments

    You know way back when when Dropbox was literally the only easy to use syncing/file sharing thing? And then everyone and their mom wanted to host our stuff in exchange for a nominal fee. I’ve reviewed SugarSync and Dropbox before and my opinion at the time was that SugarSync seemed to give me more flexibility and… read more »

Not one to be left behind, I’ve collected some nifty CSS styles over the time I’ve had this blog and I’ve mashed them all up into one very handy WordPress plugin, which I use to create some lovely button and blockquote styles. Shortcodes… read more »

    | Technology | 37 comments

    I love Scrivener. If any of you have read my little comparison review of Scrivener, Storyist and Storymill, you already know this. I adore this little piece of software. Sometimes I spend time browsin’ the web, looking for other people who love Scrivener. This is sad. However, it’s allowed me to come to one shocking… read more »

  • Changes for Mac and Scribbler for iPhone

    | Technology | no comments

    Found this neat little app called Changes that allows you to compare, side-by-side and with color overlays, the differences between text documents. This seems pretty boring and useless until you realize how many damn lines are in a fanfiction or novel and how long and tedious it quickly becomes to re-read your own and proofreader’s… read more »

  • SugarSync VS DropBox

    | Technology | 15 comments

    Well. I’m back to the battle of Cloud Syncs. I’d been using DropBox for a good long while to sync my writing across several computers and to access my files on the go. As it happened, the lack of options and sharing support on DropBox eventually made me abandon the application completely. If you want… read more »

  • I gave in…

    I bought Cultured Code’s Things. The new update has refreshed my confidence in the company and the app itself has become so ingrained in my daily routine it’s becoming hard to remember how I managed before. With its accompanying iPhone app, I can lug around my notes and todos without worrying about cloud sync and… read more »
