My latest screencast is up at Don McAllister’s ScreenCasts Online where I teach how to use Art Text 2 from BeLight Software. Manage your external volumes with Mountain from appgineers.de. I successfully moved one of my domains to Hover, check out the show for 10% off domains this month only. Control your OS X windows with Moom from manytricks.com. Steve reads us his annual tradition, the Night Before Christmas with an Ever So Slight Macintosh Bias. On Chit Chat Across the Pond we’re joined for the first time by Door to Door Geek from the Podnutz network to talk about the state of Android today.
My daughter Lindsay (you know her as Jibblies in the chat room) told me the other day that there’s one thing she misses from Windows 7 on the Mac, and that’s the ability to have a window snap to the left or right half of the screen (or top/bottom half). She loves throwing things out to me like this because she knows that I’ll either know the answer for her or I’ll find it.
Here’s another problem to be solved. You’re making a screencast (say, when you’re standing in for Don McAllister on ScreenCasts Online) and you know you’re going to be working on it over the course of a couple of days so you need the windows to always be in the same position even if you disconnect your external monitor or change screen resolutions between sessions. Imagine you’re watching a video screencasts and the window is on the left and suddenly jumps to the right a half an inch. Even a few pixels jump is really jarring so you need something to precisely place the windows in a predictable and pleasing location on screen.
