Neat little utility to clean up Bookmarks

October 17, 2007

I heard my friend Mike (over at Mike Tech Show) mention this on his last podcast. It’s a great little utility called AM-DeadLink. Just what does this do?

AM-DeadLink detects dead links and duplicates in browser bookmarks and text files. If a bookmark has become unavailable you can verify and delete it permanently. Additionally you can download FavIcons for all your Favorites and Bookmarks.

AM-DeadLink is Freeware!

AM-DeadLink can check the following resources:

  • Internet Explorer Favorites
  • Firefox bookmarks
  • Opera bookmarks
  • Mozilla and Netscape bookmarks
  • URLs from tab delimited text files
  • URLs from comma separated text files

AM-DeadLink can download FavIcons for:

  • Internet Explorer Favorites
  • Firefox bookmarks
  • Opera bookmarks

If you’re like, and you have literally thousands of bookmarks, do yourself a favor and do a little cleaning! This application was a snap to install and a breeze to use. I’m a huge fan of this software.

5 Simple Ways To Store Your Files Online

July 14, 2007

When it comes to online backup of your data, there’s probably more options than in any other web 2.0 space. However, recently I’ve tried some of these services out and found out that many have become unnecessarily complex, some are ad hells, and some don’t work at all. I’ve gone through this mess and chosen 5 simple online backup services that just work.

DropBoks

DropBoks

DropBoks is the king of simplicity. Open the page and you’ll immediately know what to do, as the whole service consists of an upload form and a file listing. Your account has 1 GB of storage space, and individual files can be max. 50 MB in size. Another nice thing about DropBoks is that it’s not only free, it also has no ads whatsoever – it’s fully donation-supported.

Ewedrive

Ewedrive

I’ve always liked it when a service gives me a subdomain to use: it’s somehow easier to remember. Ewedrive gives you just that, and doesn’t create a lot of fuss about the service. After registering, you’re allocated 1 GB of free space which you can use as you please – publicly or privately, the choice is yours. Among other features, Ewedrive supports encryption, it has no file size limits, and doesn’t restrict upload/download in any way. Ewedrive also has an interesting way of increasing capacity: if you need more space, you can buy credits, which you exchange for more space at a rate of 5 pennies (UK currency) per gigabyte.

OneDump

OneDump

Need to dump a file online quickly? No worries: open OneDump and you’ll immediately be greeted with an upload form. You can register for an account, but it’s not necessary; simply upload your stuff and you’ll get a link from which you can retrieve it later. There are no space restrictions, but you can only upload 10 files at once and each file must not exceed 5 MB.

DropSend

DropSend

DropSend is primarily a service for sending big files to people, but you can also use it to store your data online. The basic plan is free, and it includes 250 MB of storage; by cashing out $99 for the best plan you can go up to 250 GB and some enterprise-style features, for example 100 users and the ability to brand and customize the visual identity of the service to your liking.

Safari on Windows; Yes it’s REALLLY fast

June 12, 2007

I’m currently running Safari 3 Beta on my Windows XP Pro box at home.

Holy crap. This is so great. I mean, really great.

safari

It’s really really great that it’s on Windows now. We get to enjoy all the same features regardless of whether it’s on Windows or Mac. I love the interface… I have had limited time with Mac’s and have always enjoyed Safari. Now I can really enjoy it without using a Virtual Machine. I’m a really happy man now.

It’s got your typical browser capabilities, such as tabbed browsing, password database, pop-up blocking, built-in RSS, etc.

It also sports an integrated Find banner that resides below the bookmarks bar, the ability to drag and drop tabs just like bookmarks, and resizable text fields. Once final, Safari 3 will also feature a toolbar button that activates the Web Clip feature for creating Dashboard widgets.

I haven’t had too much time to play with it. But I have it installed at work on my new dual-core system… so I’ll use it tomorrow, I’m excited! I never thought this would be available on the Windows platform.
