Can I Trust my Open ID ?

250px-OpenID_logo_svg This is what I see, when I try to use my Open ID credentials to comment on a blogspot blog. 🙂

I seriously doubt, how reliable is this so called “Single Sign On” solution for the Web 2.0.

Poor exception handling ? Huh ?

Screen Snapper – Free Screen Capture Tool (Windows Vista)

Windows Vista comes with a free screen snapshot program called “Snipping Tool“. You can find this tool under accessories of your Windows Vista start menu. Though it comes bundled with the OS, very few chances are there to know about this tool and use it. A tool which can sit right in your sidebar can be more handy that this. Screen Snapper is a solution for this requirement. It’s a very simple Windows Vista Side Bar Gadget, allows you to capture the screen in Desktop, Window, Region modes. And it’s absolutely FREE of cost.

You can download Screen Scaper from WIndows Live Gallery Page

Upload images to Flickr Automatically from a Folder

Everyone loves Flickr. But unfortunately there is no simple uploading utility available for this sweet photo sharing website. Flickr does provides some utilities, but all of these tools require manual intervention to do upload.

How about a tool which can upload photos to Flickr as soon as you save a picture to your local folder? Cool ..Isn’t it ?

Foldr Monitr is a little program that sits in your system tray and does that job for you. This tool will be very useful for bloggers who want to use lot of images in their posts but lazy to upload them to flickr. I recommend this tool to be used along with a great addin called Flickr4Writer for Windows Live Writer.

Steps to configure a better photo upload and blog mechanism

01. Install Foldr Monitr and configure it for a local folder.

02. Install Flickr4Writer (You should have Windows Live Writer installed)

03. Drop all photos in to your folder…start blogging…

04. By the time you finish blogging, your pics should be ready on Flickr.

05. Use Flickr4Writer and pull all of them from Flickr and place’em in your post.

Life is now beautiful…Thanks to better software 🙂
