DesktopCoral reserves desktop space for your widgets

Earlier this week, I spent some time creating my own Rainmeter config. It's nothing major -- it's based on an existing config, and is just a simple bar which shows the time (in a couple of time zones), the current date, and a large clock. The problem was that I wanted Windows to take this bar into account when maximizing windows; I didn't want the windows to be maximized over it. To make things w...

Boot Snooze combines the goodness of hibernation and rebooting

You want to shut down your Windows PC for the day, but you also want it to start as quickly as possible tomorrow morning. Waiting 3-4 minutes to load Windows plus all of the apps that you run at startup just isn't a (good) option. What do you do? You probably just put your computer into sleep or hibernation mode.

But thanks to GoneIn60s, you can add a slowdo button. (Yes, we're going to trademark slowdo, you can't have it). What GoneIn60s does is delay the shutdown of your applications. When you hit the close button,...

Procrastination Hack: Instant Boss

Face it, many of us are overloaded. We've got a million things to do, and no time to do them. How do you chip away at that ridiculous to-do list, without getting side-tracked and losing your momentum? 43folders says the answer just might lie in tiny slices of time. Taking an hour and shattering it into 5 periods of 10 minutes, with 2 minute breaks between, hence "(10+2)*5" (yes, we're math geeks ...
