For those developers who can’t design very well (like myself), here is a link to a free design site:

OpenWebDesign.com

OpenSourceWebDesign.com (Older Version, More templates)

The popular list has some good ones and they are mainly CSS driven layouts.  Very cool.

  1. Create a label (i.e., Saved)
  2. Apply that label to your email. 1. Check the emails in your inbox that you want moved out. 2. From the dropdown choose, Apply label: 3. You'll see the label name appear next to the email subject
  3. With the emails still checked, hit the Archive button above the emails
  4. This will move your emails out of your inbox.
  5. You can still get to those emails by simply clicking the label name on the left side menu (You may have to expand the Labels section)

I was just about to go back to Microsoft Live, but found this out from random googling.

I like a clean inbox.

Slashdot has posted a new article about the D programming language.

From the article:

For those with a C/C++ background, D offers:

  • native code speed
  • extremely fast compilation times
  • garbage collection (although you can manage your own memory if you want)
  • OOP - by reference only, easy initialization, always virtual
  • cleaner template metaprogramming syntax, more powerful templates, as well
  • built-in dynamic and associative arrays, array slicing
  • versioning (no preprocessor madness)
  • link-compatibility with C
  • nested functions
  • class delegates / function pointers
  • module system

For those with a C#/Java background (a shorter list, but one with big wins):

  • similar syntax
  • No virtual machine or interpreter
  • built-in unit testing and design-by-contract

These two comparison sheets can go into more depth on how D stacks up against other languages.

From D’s creator:
For me, it’s hard to pinpoint any particular feature or two. It’s the combination of features that makes the cake, not the sugar, flour or baking powder. So,

  1. My programs come together faster and have fewer bugs.
  2. Once written, the programs are easier to modify.
  3. I can do (1) and (2) without giving up performance.

Get your compilers and start hacking D!

  • GDC (GCC front-end)

Via a post, a free tool, personal edition, to develop Ruby and Ruby on Rails in Visual Studio 2005.

I’m going to check this out this weekend.

I’ve used a few screen shot capturing tools and have even used the famous Alt-PrintScreen.

The best FREE tool I’ve used lately is WinSnap.
