Flock

Flock is a browser. The people at Flock are committed to building a browser unlike anything you’ve ever experienced before; because we start by focusing on user needs. They take pride in solving for common behaviors on the Web that seem clunky today, and will seem ridiculous tomorrow. They’re taking you there. They’re focused on keeping you close and better connected to the people, places and things you love, more informed about the topics that turn you on, and smiling about the way it all comes together. They love nothing more than hearing from users who didn’t know they were experiencing ‘conventional browser fatigue’ until they’ve downloaded Flock..and voila. Their lives get that much better. They’re big fans of the many interesting and innovative sites and services that continue to emerge to keep our online lives interesting. They also share a common vision that your browser should do much more than just get you to where you want to go. It should make sure you don’t miss out on things that are important to you and help you break down any barrier to easily share, publish, discover and communicate, so that you can enjoy the web to the fullest extent possible. If you’re not sold yet, download Flock from http://www.flock.com and get ready to meet your new favorite browser.

Save FreeHand

Free FreeHand

Free FreeHand

Having used FreeHand since version 3 to its last release MX, when Adobe purchased Macromedia we hoped but deep down knew it’s days were numbered. It was not long before the it became official. Now we are starting to see people struggling to keep it working. Well, all may not me lost…
For the last 15 years, our first choice for vector design is FreeHand. Since version 3 to it’s last release MX, we used this for both print and web vector design.

Like others, when Adobe purchased Macromedia we knew it as all over. Also having been avid users of GoLive from the first releases of CyberStudio, things looked bleak with MM’s Dreamweaver being more popular. It was not long before the it became official. Like others, we got a token copy of Illustrator and tried to use it. Soon became apparent that FreeHand was much easier and quicker to use.
Well, it was time to sit around and wait for it to stop working when Apple’s new OSX was released. We were lucky, Tiger came along – all good, Leopard, well some minor issues for some users but majority OK.

Snow Leopard on the other hand is causing major issues for FH users. Apple is loosing out as we love FreeHand more than the OS so we won’t upgrade.

Why Apple don’t allow third party virtualization companies to use the OS is beyond me, we would happily pay for the whole office to have a VM of Tiger specifically for running FreeHand whilst keeping up with Apple’s great operating system? ah well… just a thought

But all is not lost, either Apple will allow their OS with be virtualized or we could get Adobe to do something about it. FreeFreeHand.org is trying to do just that. Set up by users of FreeHand, they hope to get Adobe to sell it to another company to allow it to continue to be developed or give it to the open source community.

If you love using FreeHand and want to continue using it, get over to http://www.freefreehand.org and help the movement. We have.

ASP CAPTCHA

Aug 07 2010 Published by under Resources, Software

Today I added the source code for ASP CAPTCHA application we use on many customer websites to stop the spam robots. I’m not a fan of the distorted text images you see on other sites so we use the addition of numbers instead . Also a little neater I think.

Check our ASP CAPTCHA  out and download the code at
