    Back Up Your Tweets to CSV File with Tweetake 

    Being a big fan of Twitter myself and spending time on it almost everyday, it’s good to know that there’s a tool to back up all my tweets. Event though it may never sound necessary, but “just in case” because you never know what’s going to happen, and all these tweets may be meaningful or useful to someone who twitters everyday. Start backing up your tweets now on a regular basis, you heavy twitterer!

    Convert Any Audio and Video with Quick Media Converter 

    Quick Media Center is definetely a handy took for audio and video conversions. It supports wide range of file formats and it’s really simple to use. Just drag and drop a file into the application and use the vivid large buttons located on the top of the app to choose which file format you’d like the file to be converted to, and then just sit back and relax and let it do the rest of the work for you. To give you more information, Quick Media Converter is actually a graphical front end for the FFmpeg and it’s a freeware for Windows only.

    BitNami Makes Installing WordPress a Breeze 

    Installing and setting up WordPress(.org) to host your own blog isn’t really something difficult, especially WordPress’s handy guide does provide instructions that are clear enough for one to install it without much trouble (I was referring to the instructions given on their website and was able get it up and running the first time). However, it can still get a bit hideous to some people with all the software to install and things to configure. In case you don’t know, you’d need Apache, MySQL, and PHP to be installed and configured properly prior to the installation of WordPress(.org).

    Resize Your Bootcamp Partition Safely with CampTune 

    Apple allows you to install Windows on Macs with Bootcamp. It lets you run Windows smoothly  and drivers are provided to make the whole installation a breeze. But there’s been one major feature lacking in Bootcamp, as far as I’m concerned, ever since the availability of Bootcamp, which is the ability to allow users dynamically adjust the bootcamp partitition without touching anything on both the Mac and Windows partitions. Until now, introducing “CampTune“, which is just the thing to let you resize the bootcamp partition non-destructively!! What a handy application! The only down-side of it is that it is only free with the pre-release version. So get it now before it’s too late!!

    p.s. Backing up your system is still highly recommended before “camptuning”…
