Free Tools Galore pt. 2 - For Capturing Screen

If you have to create manuals for the work you've created (regarding software), you'll love this next tool:

Wisdom Soft's Screen Hunter

Already the free version has a lot of good features:
- capture rectangle area / window / full screen
- capture to clipboard or/and a file
- include mouse pointer in a screen capture

Especially that last helped me a LOT. Definetly recomended. On the site you can also find video guides, screenshots, etc.


Free Tools Galore pt. 1 - Download manager

As promised, I'll start a series of posts in which I'll expose the free stuff on the Internet. You can get really a lot of free stuff even without digging deep. If you have something that's REALLY good please comment it back to me, so I can include (and ofcourse download :)).

Let's present the first pick:

For me to be involved in Internet is almost a must-have a good download manager. If you're (like me) one of the people who don't want to stay alert over your large downloads, you will love the Free Download Manager.

Free Download Manager
Free Download Manager

It has it all (download resuming, multiple section download, integration with a browser, download basket) and is easy to use.

The name is also promising. You can't expect a Free Download Manager to be for charge in the future :). Congrats and also congrats on not complicating with a name.

The freeer, the simpler - the better

I'd like to share an experience with you. It's about a multimedia e-learning portal that we've been developing now for three years. It has undergone 2 major changes. The idea was born when I was driving to a meeting with my boss and we said that it would be great to have a place on the internet where you'd be able to learn by watching videos and listening to instructions.

So little planning, little developing and Clippy's Web was born. It was a great portal and it had videos in slovene language. Super. But the results didn't quite arrive. Why? Because we've decided that only part of contents will be for free and the other part for "premium" - paying members.

With a lot of effort in creating contents, marketing the portal, etc. we simply didn't get as many visits and members as we wished. So we decided for a change - a portal called B4Learning. We've changed the system in a way that each had to be a member and we also offered free membership. Like a benefit for being a member each received his own mini-portal with access to training videos, his own calendar and a place where to publish his/her files online. GREAT... Yeah, maybe for geeks like us. We've had even less visits and even less members!!!

No way! It was a time almost to panic. So at last we saw that the model of Internet is to offer for free. So now we have all the contents available in the new portal - Piflar's Web (meaning a Geek's Web) without any hassle of registration, long processes etc. You enter the portal and you can access the tips you like.

And I'm happy to see that the results are starting to show! So the model of free like the most popular model of Internet (freeware, open source etc.) is the winning model. Earning some money from it? That's a topic for next time. In my next post I'll also share some free tools you can find on the Internet for your computer or the web.


WebBorG is Born

Well the hardest thing is acomplished. The blog is created. All I needed was a liiitle push to create my blog. This is my seccond attempt to start blogging, hopefully more successful.

WebBorG? Well, not CyBorg since I'll be dealing with web here and I'm also a fan of star trek so Borg are cool from there. And also if you use my name - BORis Gomiunik you can also come up with BorG. :)

I've been trying to start with my own blog for weeks now. I have quite a lot to share with you.

So what is this going to be about? Since I'm a web developer for B4Contact - a company that is a great deal specialized in customizing user experience with Windows SharePoint Services (WSS), I've come across some tricks, tools, tips, howto-s and similar. And I want to share this with you.

Also: I love JavaScript. Untill now I could make almost all I needed with it. So WSS and JavaScript go together in a perfect harmony. And I'll prove it to you.
