Evernote: Save notes, picts, clippings, and scribbles in one place

EvernoteWhen inspiration or a sense of responsibility hits me I'll jot down a note or sketch something out with whatever means are available. If I'm at work I'll send myself a to do list or a link to check out later in an email message. When out of reach of digitial devices, post it notes, scraps of paper, and the highly-versatile cocktail napkin receive the rest of my scribbles and scratches. Now if I could just remember where I've squirreled away these bits of brilliance.

Enter Evernote , a new service to help you collect and manage your mental notes in each of their forms. Evernote allows you to send and store notes in text, image, and audio format through a variety of methods. I had signed up for a free account last month but hadn't had a chance to take Evernote for a spin until tonight.

I'll also add it to my my list of design inspiration sites to review when I begin a new project.

JavaScript Libraries Playing Nice with Others?

A common occurrence in Web 2.0 sites, and one that a recent Pingdom study notes, is the concurrent use of multiple JavaScript libraries. One explanation for this is that a required (more often desired) feature or widget may appear to only be available within one specific library.

How to Remove a Workspace in Eclipse under OS X

The other morning, before I had my morning coffee, I fired up Eclipse and when prompted to select my Workspace, I entered my password and hit return. Still in a haze, I wondered why I was looking at the default Workspace. After restarting and seeing my password in the selected Workspace I finally woke up. D'oh!{C}
