Big news! You can now see a line-up of all our future programs on the home page of our website -- http://www.amugonline.org. Charlotte, our Program Director, is doing a great job planning programs and we now have most of the year planned out. Sometimes a speaker may cancel, and this is the place to go for any last minute changes. A thanks to Christina as well for the improvements she's been making to our website.
Now, I'll continue with my series on favorite freeware apps that I've been using lately:
This handy app was recommended by tech support at Evernote. When you are about to remove a program, go into Preferences and turn it on -- it will then do a clean uninstall. By "clean uninstall" I mean the utility will also remove any related files in your library folders. Website: http://onnati.net/apptrap/
When I was researching on how to create scripts to send my documents into Evernote, someone recommended this utility as a better solution. Whenever you copy anything on your computer a list of application icons hovers over your mouse. You then click on the icon and it will send your text or file straight to that application. It's a great timesaver and I use it all the time for sending items to Evernote and Microsoft Word. You can also send files to many other apps, including Twitter and Facebook. In addition, it's a fast way to Google a word or name -- simply copy, hit the Google button, and you're there. Website: http://www.clicktoapp.com/
My friend Bob Springfield told me about this one. Just hold down your command key a little longer and all the shortcuts for the application your in will appear. Note that this utility only works with Lion. Website: http://www.cheatsheetapp.com/CheatSheet/
