  • Tried to review RocketPost…

    A reader of mine asked about my opinions about RocketPost, so I thought I’ll give it a try. Their interface seemed alright and there were some interesting features showcased in the tour. An other thing I’ve liked is that they offer a free version with no restrictions, other than the number of blogs limited to […]

  • Jango review

    Update: I no longer use Jango because of the amount of advertising and feature crippling. I rather use Grooveshark. You should give it a try if you like to listen to streaming music. Disclaimer: I have no relation with the company, its owners or employees, other than being a user of their site. I receive […]

Their episodes are high quality, and even […]

    I’m constantly searching for more efficient ways to write blogposts. Currently I’m using Windows Live Writer in a VirtualBox instance running Windows 7, but I wanted to give ScribeFire a try. The short version: it had some interesting features, but on the whole it had too many negatives compared to Live Writer to be useful […]

    Weather Brains is an excellent podcast if you are even remotely interested in weather. Released weekly, it is a hour or so of fun and information. There are multiple hosts (always a plus, it is very hard for a single host to keep an interesting tone) and a professional voice quality (which is not a […]

  • Lightning openSUSE review

    Recently I had the opportunity to install Linux on a laptop, and I thought that I should widen my experiences, so I choose openSUSE 11.0. Unfortunately I wasn’t very successful, so most probably I will end up going with an other OS (I’m still undecided between Fedora 10, or maybe I should just lick my […]
