Thinking Rock software allows you to get your thoughts out so you can get it done...

Here's some useful software (http://www.thinkingrock.com.au/)that I just found. It provides a way to get your 'thoughts/ideas' out of you mind so that you can focus on actually getting things done.

I'll add more comments after I've used it a bit....

Quote from website: "Thinking Rock is a free software application for collecting and processing your thoughts following the GTD methodology. It is simple and easy to use - see our demos and manual.
A lot of our mental energy is directed towards trying to remember and manage all the things that we want or need to do. Thinking Rock will allow you to clear your mind so that you can become more proactive and concentrate on what is important to you. "

How to run Firefox 3 and 2 at the same time.

If you're like me, you love Firefox and you can't wait for the full release of ver. 3 Problem is, if you try to run 3beta most add-ins don't work yet, and you might just hose what's already working for you.

Well, here is a solution that will allow you to run both versions side by side until you're ready to fully commit.

Create a New Profile:
You can create a profile exclusively for Firefox 3 in your Firefox 2 Profile Manager.
From your command prompt run:
c:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -ProfileManager
Name it something like BetaTest so you know you are just testing it.

Download Firefox 3:
Download the latest Firefox 3 nightly build and install to a specific directory. (like c:\FF3)

Start Firefox 3:
Start Firefox 3 with the new 'profile' you created. The key here is the ‘-no-remote’ parameter as it makes Firefox start a second Firefox.exe process with the new profile.
From your command prompt run:
(firefox3 install directory)\firefox.exe -P DeleteMe -no-remote

You could also create a Desktop Shortcut and change the property of the shortcut so you don’t have to type it all in every time.

How to charge your RAZR over USB...

So my mom was visiting and forgot her charger back home. Well I plugged it in with a basic mini-usb adapter I had for my mp3 player and it told me 'unsupported charger'... (we'll leave the rants about what I think about that for now...)

Anyway I googled and found this... thought others might find it useful as well.

(courtesy of NoHeat.com...)

1. Download the driver, unzip to a folder.
2. Plug in phone with mini USB cable too computer USB port.
3. Will auto detect and ask for drivers.
4. Point install to folder and let it do its thing.
5. Your phone will now charge with a cheap mini USB cable.

I am not really sure where these drivers originated they have been on my PC for a while, but I am sure they are free and open source. For all of those surprised that I use a RAZR, keep in mind, mine is heavily modded and until I can get a smart phone in a smaller flip factor it will be phone of choice for no other reason than its light weight and durability.

Ok now for the drivers…

NOTE: Use at your own risk!!!
