  • 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 »

  • WiP site move complete.

    | Random | 2 comments

    Finally, I’ve managed to find a host that seems reliable, has friendly customer support, doesn’t crash and burn every two days and has better response time than my old iWeb host. Everything should be pretty well moved by now; if you find any broken links, feel free to report them. Curious about the new host?… read more »

  • Shortcodes and plugins, oh my!

    | Technology | one comment

    It seems that everyone’s adding some shortcode functionality to WordPress these days. 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 »

  • WiP major server bust and update

    | Random | 4 comments

    Well. Some of you may have noticed some awful downtime recently. Wordinprogress will soon be moving to laughingsquid webhosting in an attempt to stabilize uptime. Expect a few hiccups on the way, but hopefully this will resolve any lag and/or caching issues, and prevent any further server hiccups. I’m not too happy about lugging this… read more »

  • Writing Showdown: Storyist VS Storymill VS Scrivener

    | Technology | 18 comments

    With the rising popularity of the Mac OS platform, a number of small developers and software companies have found niche markets for themselves; the Getting Things Done crowd, the Tweaking freaks, the App Launchers; all have their own list of best-of software titles and nifty little apps. There are so many choices now to replace… 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 »

  • Macpaw’s CleanMyMac is a life (and space!) saver…

    | Random | no comments

    You know that new computer feel? That speed and snazzyness you only get right out of the box? Well, you can have that feeling back. Macpaw’s CleanMyMac removes logs, cache files, useless language files (yay!) and, listen to this, unnecessary universal binaries. I think I died and woke up in heaven. Mail, Safari and iLife… read more »

  • iPhone OS 3.0 update

    | Technology | no comments

    Well, it’s finally here and I’m happy to report that I for one am enjoying the changes so far. I don’t know how useful some of those features will be for me, but still, it’s a nice update. Copy and paste is a welcome, if late, addition, and I’m already using it a bit. Still… read more »

  • Arh, GTD is kicking my ass!

    | Technology | 2 comments

    So I’m back to Things and Things for iPhone. Go figure. OmniFocus works great, but it’s a bit of an overkill for me; I don’t have to juggle with that many projects, and keeping the database up-to-date was eating up way too much of my time to be called productive. The Things interface, which was… read more »
