Directory List & Print

March 4, 2011 Leave a comment

Sometimes, the best software is often software that does a task well enough without cumbersome obstructions and hassles. Directory List & Print is a simple program that does one thing: print off directories. In case you were confused, directories are the of folders and places that show up when navigating through your computer. Occasionally, you might find it beneficial to have a record of what’s within certain directories on a sheet of paper, and this is where the program comes in. Simply locate a directory, get a preview of what’s in it through the built-in preview panel, and off you go to printing a list of the names and basic info of the corresponding files or sub-directory.

Sydney Shark

What can I say about this simple yet downright impressive game? You control a shark and wreck havoc upon the shores of lovely Sydney, Australia. That’s pretty much it aside from the massive mayhem caused your doings. Honestly, shouldn’t that alone be a reason to like this game?

If you fancy some more Shark action, check out the predecessor to this game, Miami Shark.

Down for everyone or just me?

Downforeveryoneorjustme.com is a simple web service that does just one thing: check if a website is up and running. It is useful as a diagnostic tool when you think there is a problem with your internet connection causing certain websites to be blocked. Of course, you may simply phone up a peer and have him/her visit the same site and provide a second opinion, but trust me, this is is a far simpler and effective solution.

Who’s the culprit here?

Scribus

Scribus is an open-source desktop publishing program that can be used for a variety of purposes. Common products designed with the software include but are not limited to fliers, brochures, posters and newspapers. In utilizing WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) forms of page composition and layout, Scribus aims to compete with the likes of Adobe InDesign and QuaekXPress, both of which are its main commercial competitors. Support for the CMYK color model and Scalable Vector Graphics also help to establish its presence as a well-suited alternative to said programs for those on a tight budget. Though, for better or worse, it lacks support for proprietary file formats used by its competitors; users should still be content knowing that this is free software and, after all, it’s the final product that matters, and Scribus delivers on that with ability to export to PDF and various other print-ready formats used by the industry at large.
