LiveZeit Online Organizer

I haven't had much tome to post recently, because most of my time has been taken up with developing LiveZeit, an online organizer. It's similar to google calendar, only better.

LiveZeit offers loads of features, including recurring events, multiple users, your own subdomain, themes, AJAX and much more. I'm looking for testers at the moment, so if you're looking for an online task manager and you want to contribute, please sign up at the link below.

Change your POST Bitmap

7 Comments Site news and Technology

Ever thought it would look cool if you had a custom image displayed when you turn on your laptop instead of the Dell logo? I found a utility from Dell which seems to work on most models, and replaces the default logo with a BMP of your choice. I've bundled the utility with a few splash screens, all you need to do is either follow the instructions to create a bootable USB key or burn the included ISO image and type 'spl2 imagename' at the prompt.

DELL POST Bitmaps

A few splash screens are included with this release, but I'll probably add more later.

TrueLaunchBar Battery Monitor

No Comments Other / Site and Site news

So I got my new Laptop, a Dell Inspiron 9400. Expect a review by the end of the week.

I've been using TrueLaunchBar for years, and never used the battery monitor plug-in for it. The skin that comes with it looks too Win98-ish, so I created a better one using UVAcav47's icons. All credit for the icons goes to him, I just compiled them together into a skin.

Dynasig 1.0 Released

2 Comments Site news

Dynasig is a dynamic PHP script which lets you set a mood using the control panel, and adds a picture for it, aswell as a random quote to an image which you can use as a sig on forums. Version 1 is just a preview really, and I'm hoping to add support for winamp, mirc and loads more features in the future. You can make sigs like the one below with version 1.0.
