Lets DestroyTwitter!

This maybe the best air app I have ever used! I use twinkle for my ipod updates, and my phone for on the go, but how do I update my twitter status on my desktop? I Destroy Twitter. By now your guessing that Destroy Twitter is an app. Not just a twitter app, but also an Adobe Air app. So you can Destroy Twitter on Mac OS X, Linux and another platform that supports Air.

Chrome Nightly: mini_installer.exe isn’t updating

I downloaded the latest nightly build of Chrome, only to realize that the mini_installer.exe wouldn’t update my Chrome installation on Windows 7. I would run the executable, but nothing would happen. Finally, I decided to change the compatibility to Windows Vista and Vola!, it worked!
So if you’re having trouble with the mini_installer.exe, just right click the exe, goto Properties. Then goto the Compatibility tab and then choose Windows Vista. No matter if you delete the mini_installer.exe, the settings should stay the same for any mini_installer.exe in that same folder (Desktop?). …

How to Save Linerider 2 Track Data to Thumb Drive

I spent my entire computer class today creating a LineRider 2 track (which was pretty amazing haha), but I was a little frustrated when I had to log off and go to the next class because I would lose all of my data. The computers at my school have “deep freeze” software installed, which restores the computer to a certain state every time the computer is rebooted (almost like a system restore).

Twitter announces it will be offering paid services to business and premium users soon! Reports were saying that Twitter was going to force these “fees” on companies, however Twitter responded with a blog post telling everyone the fees are not going to be “forced”. I think this is a good opportunity for companies and …

Klok: A free Adobe Air time tracking application

I wanted to find a free, easy application to track my time spent on various projects. I found Klok, its an Adobe AIR application! I downloaded it and it went fairly simple. The application is very simple to use, however it has a decent learning curve. I would say it took me almost 5 minutes to learn my way around the application, and I’m still finding new things out as I write this.

At first, when you launch the application, you are presented with the “Project View” screen. The first thing …

Adsense Disabled my Account! New Ads!

I was contacted by Google yesterday about my AdSense account. I guess our ads were “a risk to Adsense’s publishers” (more here), when really I think the issue was that we were getting close to our first payout. I immediately appealed, however I noticed that less than 1% of all appeals actually get approved and the account reinstated. That wasn’t very good odds, so I went searching for new companies.
I came along AdBrite, which is known for having problems with their Contextual matches and totally unrelated ads, however they were the …
