WinSplit Revolution Quick use Modern day monitors continually provide higher resolutions and for this reason we've developed a simple program that permits you to "divide" your screen into several parts: halves, thirds, fourths, etc... For instance, a window can be resized and moved to the left half, the right half, the top, a corner... of the screen.
MS Project can use some competition, for sure. It has a lot of capabilities, but the overall app has stagnated for some years now. If these guys or Google can come up with a better way to build a project management app I'll be a charter member. As a PMP I work with MS Project everyday. Tom's Planner
Chart junk? How pictures may help make graphs better Wednesday, November 4, 2009 Those oft-maligned, and highly embellished, graphs and charts in USA Today and other media outlets may actually help people understand data more effectively than traditional graphs, according to new research from North Carolina State University. Newspapers and magazines often embellish charts or graphs to draw attention to them or to highlight information. Some experts describe these graphic embellishments as "chart junk," which they argue detracts from a graph or chart's effectiveness. So, can those graphics be too distracting, making it more difficult or time-consuming to read a graph accurately? Researchers from NC State and the University of Idaho show that the answer is yes, and no.

Send it later Outlook has in-built support for sending emails at a later date or time, but I’ve had very inconsistent results when using it. As a result, I purchased an add-on called SendLater, which provides a more reliable way to do this. It even offers a few more extra features. I’d like to show how it can be used to solve a few recurring administrative issues. Scheduled Emails I make a lot of plans for visitors to BRI.

Seven Guidelines for Writing Worthy Works of Non-Fiction I try to write the kind of books I'd like to read, and I try to read the kind of books I'd like to write. This isn't as narcissistic as it sounds. I'd like to write like Tolstoy or Alan Moore or Steve Landsburg, but I have to settle for being me.
Google Wave Here's a little story to show just how thoroughly Google's long-awaited chatting tool, called Google Wave , can kill your mood to chat: The other day, I was "waving" with Zach Frechette, the editor of magazine. Naturally, we were talking about the new site's merits and flaws. As we went back and forth, I had a tiny epiphany. It's Just Fancy Talk

Bind Papers Together Without Staples or Clips
By Geoffrey Nunberg Whether the Google books settlement passes muster with the U.S. District Court and the Justice Department, Google's book search is clearly on track to becoming the world's largest digital library. No less important, it is also almost certain to be the last one. Google's five-year head start and its relationships with libraries and publishers give it an effective monopoly: No competitor will be able to come after it on the same scale.

Inefficient Journal Submission Policies In their instructions to authors just about all of the economics journals require that papers be submitted with a certain format for the references, bibliography, figures and so forth. Except no one I know actually does this until after a journal has accepted the paper; thus no wasted effort. One day my wife, a microbiologist, was complaining about all the work that it took to reformat a paper for submission. I told her that only newbies did this. Shocked, she claimed that if she didn't reformat, the paper would instantly be rejected.
