Cool and/or Useful Tools

A good plan violently executed today, is far and away better than a perfect plan tomorrow.

Stuff I wrote:
  • ScreenCap.IT - Written in Java it captures the selected region of the screen and automatically uploads it to the internet for quick and easy sharing.
  • qTimer - This is a windows application written in Microsoft VisualBasic.NET.  I use this timer to help increase my productivity, by working in 48/12 minute cycles throughout the day.  The way this goes is I spend 48 minutes of focus and sprinting while trying to get things accomplished and 12 minutes of project organization, answering instant messages, looking over IRC channels, answering emails, etc..
  • StringMaker - webapp : Encode a string into several formats including html, url, javascript, c++, and c++ _T()
  • Base64 - webapp : Convert to and from Base64.  I'll probably do some more with this app when I get the urge.
  • GUID - webapp : Generate a globally unique identifier.
  • PassGen - webapp : Very simple random password generator.
  • YourIP - webapp : Plain and simple, gives you your ip address.
