Noteflight - Sign In - 1 views

  •  
    We built Noteflight because we looked at where software is today, and saw that applications for writing music were stuck in the past. We wanted to accomplish a few important goals: Make it easy to create and share written music online. People who make music -- amateurs and professionals, students and teachers -- want to share that music with others, sooner or later. But most software for working with notated music treats the Internet as an afterthought: it's geared to saving your music on your own computer's hard disk, not to sharing your music with other people. It's painful to share musical scores online today, and as software inventors, we knew how much better it could be. People expect to be able to do their creative work wherever they go, and a crop of new browser-based applications make it incredibly easy to create and publish word-processing documents or spreadsheets online. We feel musical documents should be just as accessible. Empower developers to build a new world of musical and educational applications. Applications today should be not only powerful tools, but building blocks that can be combined in ways that their creators have never foreseen. A truly powerful musical application should be extensible without having to open it up and change the code. Adding new instruments and symbols, or embedding in a page and building new kinds of connections with other content -- all of these things should be possible. A great tool lets creative people not only use its built-in capabilities, but extend them and freely reorganize them in new ways. As Bertrand Meyer, a pioneer of software thinking, once put it: "Real systems have no top". Encourage a vibrant community of users by keeping the basics free. Music notation software vendors continue to charge high prices for boxed software, CD and DVD distribution media, and printed manuals. Then once you buy something, you're basically stuck with it until the next major upgrade cycle comes around, at which point you pa

Free PerioS Download - 0 views

  •  
    free time lapse photography software for a while now and finally found Perios. Perios is a tiny download and very, very simple to use. For my first movie I set the software to record one frame every five seconds but I feel I need to continue experimenting for improved results. Once the software captures all the still pics you have to export them as a movie file. I then added all the credits and music in Movie Maker. Too easy!!! The only hassle I had with the software was trying to get it to work with a webcam. I eventually just stuck with the built in camera in my laptop. Possible Time Lapse Subjects - flower blooming / plant growth - spider spinning a web - tracking shadow movement throughout a day - artwork being made - a classic game of chess - the classroom working - lego construction - snail race - decomposing fruit - butterfly hatching - traffic outside your window for surveys - is the movement of the lunchtime crowd fractal? - fill up and ant farm and record tunnel creation - growing of crystals - your fish tank - clouds across the sky / storm coming

    "Pixlr is a great alternative to the expensive software. Consequently, I have decided to make several lessons using this fabulous online tool. Students can go home and work on projects for free. They can become masters of the software if they so choose. The beauty of learning Pixlr is that you can transfer some of that knowledge to other software programs." (from site home page

Why Free Software has poor usability, and how to improve it (Matthew Paul Thomas) - 0 views

  •  
    When I wrote the first version of this article six years ago, I called it "Why Free Software usability tends to suck". The best open source applications and operating systems are more usable now than they were then. But this is largely from slow incremental improvements, and low-level competition between projects and distributors. Major problems with the design process itself remain largely unfixed.

The Facebook "video message" spammer worm is making rounds again - 0 views

  •  
    If you received a Facebook message similar to these: ---------- Hey funny. Between You and a Friend Today at Time/Date Is that you making love?!: Long link to video download web site here ... ---------- or ---------- Hi my friend. Between You and a Friend Today at Time/Date Who and when made this video of you?!!!: Long link to video download web site here ... ---------- DELETE it. Do NOT click the link. If you clicked the link, do NOT download the file! If you downloaded, do NOT click/run the file! If your Facebook profile is suddenly sending spam-like messages to all your friends (similar to those above), please read the instructions for removing the Koobface worm. If the worm is a variant of Koobface.A, there may be instructions and antivirus data files (update, dat file, signature, etc.) or a remover application specific to the variant. Don't panic. There is no good reason to format a hard drive to get rid of a virus. Most antivirus software can do a good job of cleaning up. As this thing relies on an internet connection to propagate, please unplug your network cable. Follow the removal instructions for your operating system, and scan your computer with updated antivirus software. I think any one of the popular antivirus applications (and some spyware progams) will take care of it as long as what you're using has the latest virus definitions/signatures/dat file/updates, etc. W32.Koobface.A http://www.symantec.com/norton/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2008-080315-0217-99 Free stuff here that may help: Browser Security Tests: http://www.pcflank.com AVG Anti-Virus Free: http://free.grisoft.com Ad-Aware Spyware Remover: http://www.lavasoft.com/single/trialpay.php Spybot Search & Destroy http://www.safer-networking.org/en/

The coolest bits of classroom tech I've ever seen | Education IT - 0 views

  •  
    I met with a representative from Turning Technologies today. While many of you may have had the opportunity to use interactive response systems (so-called "clickers"), we're finally moving into the 21st century; now that we have reasonable computing facilities at all of our schools, our goal is to fully utilize them and add interactivity. Thus, these interactive response systems that allow students to answer questions and take surveys in class with their aggregated responses displayed within a PowerPoint presentation or on a standalone unit. The real beauty of Turning's system is its direct integration with PowerPoint (sorry, no OpenOffice integration, although the software can be superimposed over any Mac or Windows software). It includes a dedicated toolbar and a series of macros for automating the creation of interactive slides.

    Beautiful site and looks like the software is super easy to use to virtually look at anything in space. Big wow factor. Only drawback is that it takes some hefty computing power to run the software. For example, while the minimum RAM is 1 GB, they recommend 2 GB AND while 1 GB minimum hard drive is okay, they suggest 10GB. Now for most people, only the RAM will be the issue. However, it is so cool, I'd love to run out and get a PC with the power to run this application.

    This is my new project : A New Type Board . I named this software "typedrawing". I feel a great interest in application or software to communicate and represent one's mind and thougth through internet. Board(bbs) is very easy and useful thing for communicating. and board is evolving day by day such as blog. but why we have to type words in the same way such as typing from left to right. that is typical and easy to recognize but not interesting, sometimes boring. This is one of the easy and exquisite way of showing one's word. You can say anything with your letters by drawing them. Feel free to represent your types and words to say. It's just a easy and funny thing. I'm looking for your beautiful typedrawing and take a look around other's work.
