Hibernate or Standby Your Computer After Restart

I don't reboot my computer that often because it can be a bit inconvenient, and sometimes I go weeks without having restarted it. My reasoning is typically that I have too many apps open and don't feel like restarting them all, but other times it's because I'm on the way out the door and just throw my machine in standby so that it is ready for me when I go to use it again.

Resize Photos for Digital Picture Frames

Digital picture frames are a great way to showcase your photo library, but some people think that they need enormous memory cards so that they don't have to constantly swap out images. The photos taken with a digital camera are often very high resolution, and can therefore limit how much you can fit onto a card.

Tools for RegEx Beginners

We've posted all kinds of various regular expression builders (RegExr, Rejex, and ReguLazy) to help verify that the regex you're using will match the content it is running against. When you're just learning regular expressions those tools might be a little confusing, and so we thought we should offer up a couple free sites that should help out beginners.

How to Disable the Insert Key and Overtype Mode

One of the things that can be really annoying for me is when I'm writing something only to realize later on that I had pressed the Insert key enabling the overtype mode. In many applications this will cause you to overwrite text whenever you move the cursor into the middle of a block of text and continue typing.

Advanced Evernote Search Syntax

Evernote is one of my most used applications on all my machines and mobile devices because it has all of the data I access on a regular basis. One of the reasons why I love Evernote so much is because I can take a photo of a receipt or document, and their servers will perform character recognition (OCR) on it so that I can search the text it is able to find.

Monitor and Quit Adobe Flash on Mac

A lot of people have heard about the negative impact using Adobe Flash can have on your notebook computer, such as the MacBook Air. Apple even went as far as not including Flash when shipping new MacBook Air computers, and it's likely because of the battery implications it can have.

Add Folders to the Mac Menu Bar

I've always added some of my most used folders to the Mac OS X Dock, but at the same time my menu bar has remained fairly empty. I came across a pretty nice app called XMenu that will let you add up to 6 different icons to the menu bar, and each one represents a different folder on your machine.

Q10 is a Full Screen Writing Program

I'm not real big on full-screen writing applications, but I know quite a few people who use Q10 on a regular basis. This is considered to be a distraction-free way to write stories, articles, or just about anything that is text-based. It isn't a feature-packed app like Microsoft Word, but it includes a lot of the things that writers really want including spell check capabilities.

Save a Webpage to a Single HTML File in Chrome

How many times have you wanted to archive a webpage or save its current state for one reason or another? I know this has happened to me, and I've almost always turned to a scrolling screenshot to snap an image of the entire page or I've used a print-to-PDF app.

I've never been much of a journal writer, but when I came across the free RedNotebook software I knew it was something I had to try out. It's a simple way to manage a daily journal on your computer without having to think about things such as actually saving your entries since it is taken care of automatically.

Splash Lite: A Beautiful Video Player

There are all kinds of great video players out there such as VLC and GOM, but when it comes down to appearance I have to give Splash Lite the credit it deserves. You can see what I'm talking about in the screenshot above, but that only gives you a glimpse of how polished the app actually is.

Boot Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Ophcrack, and Others From a USB Drive

A few years ago I used to keep spindles of blank CDs and DVDs next to my computer because I was frequently burning discs, but over the last year or two that has drastically changed. Now I have my discs tucked away since I barely burn one or two discs per year.
