70 Ways To Save The Earth

As a follow up much earlier post here on RGdot I was contacted about an extended list that we can all use as reference. Some very simple like turning off lights when not in use to sometimes not so easy ones like using organic products the list includes 70 things we can all do. A few like using less packaging requires more consumers becoming conscious and vocal to influence change but doing even one or few of the list will help the environment.

Notes With AnnoPad Google Chrome Extension

AnnoPad (version:1.5.3) or URL Specific Notepad – AnnoPad to mention its full name is a Google Chrome extension that saves notes in a drop down accessible via its icon much the same way as many other extensions.

TreeProjects is now free!

TreeProjects is a notes organizer, a very powerful one, that I became a fan of many years ago. It had started life as the free Smereka and grew to a full featured outliner and organizer. I wrote a brief review of it in 2011. It has many features that made and make it complete like tagging, linking nodes, global search and reminders.

After years of no development Yaroslav has made the last version, 2.9.4, freely available and paying for a licence becomes optional, if you want to help him.

At version 0.3 clipLogger is a new, beta software that takes a no frills approach to capturing and storing clipboard content.

The interface is very minimalist. The program settings include system settings like fonts and start up
