Greenshot – free screenshot tool

After using SnagIt for several years with my old company, I was in need of an open source replacement.  After using everyone’s favorite research assistant, I found Greenshot.  It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that SnagIt has, but it has the basics which is what you use 80% of the time anyway.

I originally did this back in 2007, but did not want to lose the content, so I decided to put it up here. I found a robust and relatively simple calendar control to use for web UIs. It can use a pop-up window or a floating tag. I prefer the latter as it makes the …

After feedback from some friends of mine, and doing a little bit of background research, I am writing this update to my original post last week.  As it turns out, by checking all the numbers in the form 6k ± 1  instead of checking each number up to the input value, I have increased the speed …

Modeling in Color

I just finished leading the modeling session as chief architect of the problem domain (PD) for a new application, and I had forgotten how exhausting the process is.  We had a fantastic moderator who did well to keep us on point and focused toward our objective.  We have about 50 or so objects, and I …
