Here's an easy, free, cross-platform solution for grabbing screenshots of web content: Screengrab, a Firefox add-on. It includes a great feature once found only in high-end tools: It can capture an entire page/frame, including the portions that fall below the scroll. After you install Screengrab, you see an icon down in your status bar:
You can use the Document Inspector to find and remove hidden data and personal information in Office documents that were created in Office Word 2007, Office Excel 2007, Office PowerPoint 2007, and earlier versions of these Office programs. It is a good idea to use the Document Inspector before you share an electronic copy of your Office document, such as in an e-mail attachment.
Open the Office document that you want to inspect for hidden data or personal information.
I just came across a useful article about Vista remote desktop supporting multiple monitors.
Vista Remote Desktop Wide Screen:
You can access these features using the command line in a few ways:
If you know the dimensions that you want, you can specify the height and width:
mstsc /w:2048 /h:768 /v:(servername)
The problem: Our trainer had a MacBook and no connector to use our projector, and she couldn't use our Windows-based conferencing software.
The solution: Yuuguu. It works on Windows, MacOS, and Linux, and with IE, Firefox, and Safari. Only the host needs to install anything; participants simply browse to the meeting URL and enter the correct pin to join in -- a fabulous feature, as I didn't have admin rights on the computer in our meeting room. If I were able to install Yuuguu, we could have gotten control of the web conference and shared our desktop, for full collaborative work.
Sounds like a steal: Austin Technology Council is presenting its annual Austin InnoTech (Business & Technology Innovation Conference & Expo) on October 16 this year; it's all but free ($35 gets you into all keynotes, exhibits, and sessions). There are also discounts for groups of 3 or more. Location is the Austin Convention Center. Check out the Software track. You can also browse last year's presentations.
Ran into this handy tip while wandering the web. No warranty expressed or implied :)
Firefox is set to default to a dialup connection so it will only download up to 4 things at a time, there is a way to change that IF YOU HAVE A HIGH SPEED INTERNET CONNECTION to download 30 things at a time, it's amazing the difference it makes in browser speed.
WARNING: This tip requires you to make changes to the way FireFox works and if not performed properly can cause performance issues.
Here’s an interesting project to keep an eye on – a collection of case studies of "how nonprofits and social change makers are using social networks to get the word out and inspire action."
It's a wiki, so anyone can contribute their examples to the pages. The Frozen Pea Fund is there, as well as a Second Life scavenger hunt for the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
I’ve added a page to IC for recording details of release schedules for software used by iMIS – for example the next versions of Microsoft SQL Server or Microsoft Office.
If you come across any information on release schedules for products that we use or integrate with can you update it here.
i would like to change the left nav bar for the system setup tab on the desktop. i can't find the html file which has it. does anyone know where it might be or is it hidden so it can't be changed.
I recently attended a Microsoft MSDN Roadshow. The slides for the presentations are here:
* ADO.NEXT – Entity Framework & Data Services
* ASP.NEXT – The ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions
* Building Rich Internet UI with Silverlight 2
* Getting the most from the Visual Studio Team Suite Toolbox
Probably the most interesting area was all the tools that are now available in Visual Studio Team System for unit testing, SQL refactoring and schema versioning.
