When developing software or just working with a lot of files and folders. There comes a time when you need to figure out the differences in your files and folders. When that time comes, you can either spend a lot of money on something fancy, or you can go the free way and take a look at the following free file compare programs.
It’s pretty easy to get started. Just select your files and then compare them. The only thing I don’t like about this one is that it doesn’t let you compare folders.
The thing I liked most about this one is that it let me compare my folders. I use this when I have to figure out if something was changed that wasn’t in my versioning system. Really saved me some time.
I’m a huge fan of Open Source.
This little article lists 40 of the Free Open Source Resources out there to help you save some money. With a tough economy like the one we’re facing today, it’s good to be able to save any penny you can. By the way, if you scroll down far enough, you’ll see that there’s a free eBook in there about Linux.
Even though I prefer a web interface when blogging, I feel I should let you all know about a great article introducing 20 or so blogging tools. It’s really well written so I don’t feel the need to summarize. Check it out and enjoy!

I’ve FINALLY open sourced my first Drupal module. I’ve written several Drupal modules for clients in the past; however, this is the first one I’ve open sourced and given to the community. I’m very, very excited about this module.
For those of you that don’t know, I’ve been an open source developer for years. Now, I’m finally able to give back!
I’m proud to announce the arrival of Status Messages Alter to the Drupal community. This module adds hook_message_alter to Drupal 6, enabling developers to change the status messages before they are delivered to the user. This has been something I’ve been wanting for a while now, and I’m sure others have been wanting this too!
Now it’s finally here. I hope you all enjoy the module as much as I already have.

I came across this blog about the 10 Sources of Inspiration for Designers and thought – this can be used for anyone really. I mean, why is it that we think only artsy people can be creative? Why can’t anyone just get inspired? Anyway, this article is good because it’s just so obvious…
- The first inspiration is Art
- The next one is Galleries and Museums
All kidding aside!
I say that a lot, don’t I? If you were to read all my important blogs, you’d know that. Regardless of my sense of humor and my love for “trying” to be funny, I really did appreciate the blog and I do believe you could use it to your benefit some day. Cheers!
What do version numbers mean? Where did they come from? Windows 7, wait, where was Windows 6? Oh, Vista…sneaky, sneaky. Why do companies do what they do when choosing version numbers?
Aha! This little article will explain it all to you:
Keep an eye out for the colorbox, it’s a good one.
