Tweak Firefox for widescreens and make it stay in the background when you want it to

Have a widescreen monitor?  Chances are if you have a newer laptop you do.  Even lots of desktop users are jumping on the widescreen bandwagon.  Well, funny thing is that applications haven’t caught up with this change in monitor size.  Fear not, though, help is on its way.
I found this from GHacks a long while […]

Firefox Add-ons: All You Need To Know

I am a begrudging Firefox user.  IE was driving me nuts as I opened more and more tabs.  I do still think Maxthon is da bomb, but sometimes not being able to use an IE plugin I want/need gets old.  So Firefox it is.  One thing Firefox is well-known for is its extensions.  You can […]

If you’re feeling adventurous, GHacks tells us that Firefox 2.0.4 is out. I downloaded it, installed it, and everything seems to be hunky dory. Give it a shot early or just wait until the update is pushed out.

Toggl-free, web-based time tracking, worth a solid look

One of the banes of consultants is often time tracking.  Good time tracking software is hard to find, regardless of price, good, free time tracking software is nearly impossible to find.  Believe me, I’ve looked.
So whenever the words, “free” and “time-tracking” appear in a post title my ears perk up.  But when you mix “web-based” […]

Test your router to see if supports all of Vista’s networking features

 This is more of a tip for those of us who work at home so we manage our own networks and routers and were brave enough to leap to Vista already.

Give LeapTag a try for info goodness

I wrote about LeapTag for the Blog World Expo Blog, but if you weren’t following my conference coverage (shame on you), read my review.
Okay, done?  Great.  Now this is a cool tool that, while still in beta, you should give shoot.  It’s different.  It’s interesting.  And I’m finding some cool stuff faster with it.
My review goes […]
