Online productivity app that works offline – blows GCal, Backpack, etc away

Move over Google Calendar, Backpack and Google Notebook – there’s a new online productivity app coming out that does everything you all do, and better (plus more).

I have signed up for a beta account and can’t wait to try this out. I think that Google needs to step up to out do or at least match the abilities of Scrybe.

ShowMeDo for irb

I made a screencast for the ShowMeDo web site. It is the first that I have made so take a look at it and let me know what you like and what you don’t. I would like to make some more in the future and whatever input I can get will be very helpful. While you are there take a look at the other great videos and you may learn something new. If you are a Ruby programmer then make your own video and submit it. As soon as they get more Ruby videos they are going to create a category for it like they have for Python.

House

I have just finished a great book called House. It was written by two of my favorite authors, Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti. Here is the description of the book from Tek Dekker’s site.

In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods and seek refuge in a house. They soon realize the killer has purposely lured them to this house and that they are now trapped. As they huddle around an old fireplace, a tin can falls through the chimney. Scrawled on its side is a message from the killer, establishing his House Rules. The rules call for their deaths unless they kill at least one of the four.

They have less than 12 hours to find a way to survive. At sunrise the game is over and everyone dies if the killer’s demands aren’t met. What they quickly learn is that the only way out . . . is in. But going further into this house–where unknown challenges await them–is equally deadly.

The book just awesome. If you have read Peretti’s book “The Oath” then you will be used to some of the weired things that happen in the story. I have just started Dekker’s “Showdown” and I can’t wait to read his newest book “Saint”. I will post my thoughts on each of these once I finish reading them.
