Synergy lets you easily share a single mouse and keyboard between multiple computers with different operating systems, each with its own display, without special hardware. It's intended for users with multiple computers on their desk since each system uses its own monitor(s).

Mac Web Dev Software Every now and then, I’m asked what software I use on the Mac for what I do. Here’s my list with a few alternatives…

2008 I thought I should actually try to get a post in before January is over. In 2008, I intend to write shorter posts and post more often. I also intend to work on my grammar and proofreading. BTW, the current theme on the blog is sort of a experiment. It will likely change over the next few months. What can I say, I’ve been busy.

I’ve intended to write a review of Lineform for over a year now — I registered before Freeverse took over the distribution. It’s been a while. Instead, I’ll simply say I like Lineform and I use it at least 3 days a week. It is not the most stable piece of software, but it gets the job done.

Now, VectorDesigner is out and I just downloaded the demo. It shows allot of promise. If it proves itself more stable than Lineform, I just might buy it. It seems to have all of Lineform’s features out of the gate and a Flikr browser, polygon and star tools, and raster-to-vector convertor. It has a iWork style inspector and, unlike Pixelmator, knows when to use HUD style windows without going overboard.


Two major strikes against VectorDesigner. No SVG export and the gradients only work between two colors. Lineform has and SVG export/import and gradients can be built from any number of colors.

Halloween TextMate Easter Egg I was working on a website today when I noticed the “edit” toolbar button in Cyberduck was a little different. Happy Halloween.

Update: Looks like this is a TextMate easter egg. Somebody’s been abusing the auto-updater. I keep TextMate in my dock and the icon didn’t change there, so I didn’t notice it earlier.
