Working Offline: Flock Blog Post Editor & ScribeFire Blog Editor

I have found that a good way to work offline (e.g. working from a PC or Mac, in a browser) is to use Flock's Blog Post Editor and ScribeFire's Editor.

Both Editors allow for posts to be saved. These saved posts are saved within the browser's profile directory/folder.

These saved posts can be posted later, or (and this is important) you not post them, but instead, send them as an email, create a document, etc. In other words, you can use these Editors to author ideas, whether or not you blog/post them, or do something else with them.

So, whenever I have a thought that I want to write about, I can do so, even when the internet is not available.

[begin update]
  • Flock saves "unpublished" blog posts in ~Profiles\blogdrafts.sqlite
  • ScribeFire Blog Editor saves posts (a.k.a "notes") in ~Profiles\extensions\performancing-notes.xml
[end update]

Does anyone have other methods of working offline?


The following keyboard shortcuts are available for ScribeFire:

  • F8: Toggle the ScribeFire window open and closed.

Used in the rich text editor (combined with Ctrl or Command)

  • Bold: "B"
  • Italic: "I"
  • Underline: "U"
  • Link: "M"
  • Undo: "Z"
  • Redo: "Y"
  • Cut: "X"
  • Copy: "C"
  • Paste: "V"
  • Delete: "D"
  • Select All: "A"

Efficiency: drag URL or tab within and amongst browsers

You can click on the icon of a webpage that you are visting, to another browser, or open it in a new tab by dragging it to the Tab area.

This works within* a browser, and amongst** browsers! Moreover, you can also drag them amongst browsers, e.g. Firefox, Flock, Safari, SeaMonkey Navigator, and even IE (Internet Explorer) - but, not Opera.

* within browser example:

** amongst browsers, e.g. from Firefox to Flock:

of Google's many products that have search plugins, Google Notebooks does not

I am always on the lookout for [Sherlock*] search plugins, and like to add those that interest me. Recently I discovered, much to my disappointment/frustration, that of Google's many products that have search plugins, Google Notebooks does not!!!!

A quick attempt at finding out if anyone else was aware of this lack, resulted in not finding anything.

Does anyone know of a workaround, or the status of Google adding this feature to their Notebook application?

* The Mycroft project provides a collection of Sherlock & OpenSearch Search Engine Plugins for Mozilla browsers (e.g. Flock, Firefox) and for the Internet Explorer browser.

Use "keyword" feature in Firefox-based browsers

For each of my topics in my "Annotated Tag Cloud" (personal Wikipedia), add a keyword, for quick re-entrance into that document for that topic/keyword.

For Firefox, keyword features is enabled, but for Flock it must be
  1. activated...'keyword - Enter "about:config" (minus the quotation marks) into the url bar and press enter. Type "flock.favorites.showKeyword" (minus the quotation marks) into the "Filter" bar at the top of this window. Change the value to true.' - The tweaks that I make to Flock
  2. set, by favoriting once, and then again to be able to see the Keyword field in the Favorite panel.

In Firefox...

URL Shortening» (by Eric Herberholz)

Overview: URL Shortening, in TechEncyclopedia - 'Converting a long URL name into a short one. Also called "URL redirecting," there are many free URL shortening services on the Web that take a long URL, convert it to a short name and perform the redirection for the user when the short URL is clicked. URL shortening can be used when sending extremely long URLs in e-mail messages or chat rooms, because the URL is often broken up by the time it reaches its destination. The single string of characters is turned into multiple lines and no longer serves as a clickable link.'

Grok - "Stranger in a Strange Land" - Robert A. Heinlein - The Police song "Friends," lyrics state that the singer will "grok your essence."' - David Brin and Greg Cox, have borrowed the term over the years as an homage

Had a conversation with my wife about "grok", and found out, much to my dismay, that she did not know the origin of "grok", nor had she read "Stranger in a Strange Land"!!!

I knew the Etymology of "grok", and shared it ...with my wife:
Robert A. Heinlein originally coined the term grok in his 1961 novel Stranger in a Strange Land as a Martian word that literally means "to drink", and had a much more profound figurative meaning that is hard for Earthlings to understand because of our assumption of a singular reality.

According to the book, drinking is a central focus on Mars where water is scarce. Martians use the merging of their bodies with water as a simple example or symbol of how two entities can combine to create a new reality greater than the sum of its parts. The water becomes part of the drinker, and the drinker part of the water. Both grok each other. Things that once had separate realities become entangled in the same experiences, goals, history, and purpose. Within the book, the statement of divine immanence verbalized between the main characters, "Thou Art God", is logically derived from the concept inherent in the term grok.

Heinlein describes Martian words as "guttural" and "jarring". Martian speech is described as sounding "like a bullfrog fighting a cat". Accordingly, grok is generally pronounced as a guttural "gr" terminated by a sharp "k" with very little or no vowel sound (a narrow IPA transcription might be [ɡɹ̩kʰ]).

(Grok. (2008, June 12). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 15:36, July 6, 2008, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Grok&oldid=218959127)

And I then began to uncover things that I did not know about grok...
  1. "Other science fiction authors, such as David Brin or Greg Cox, have borrowed the term over the years as an homage." - Wikipedia's Grok
  2. 'In The Police song "Friends," lyrics state that the singer will "grok your essence."'
  3. Grokker’s web-based, hosted solution, federates internal enterprise information, subscription content and public web services into an intuitive interface that facilitates information discovery and actionable research. Select one or more sources then grok. Yahoo!   Wikipedia   Amazon Books

We'll be buy "Stranger in a Strange Land" (by Robert A. Heinlein) very soon, and she will read it.

QuoteURLText - excellent Add-On - especially the Formatting Customization feature - Check it out!

Just revisited using a Firefox Mozillia Add-On Extension called QuoteURLText, and either it has improved when I was not looking, or it already had this very cool formatting feature...
  1. If you click on Tools>Quoteurltext and see the Basic tab in the Text Options...
    Quoteurltext - QuoteURLText - Add-On"
  2. Click on "Use Advanced Formatting" and then...

  3. Click on the Advance Formatting tab...
    Quoteurltext - QuoteURLText - Add-On"

  4. Choose your formatting preferences, e.g.
    "@quote" - @url - @title
Then, when you highlight text, right-click, and choose "Quote Text", you'll get the data you want put on the clipboard. For example:
    "the failure to utilize one's talents and gifts" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_deadly_sins#Sloth__.28Latin.2C_acedia.29 - Seven deadly sins - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

NASA Develops System To Computerize Silent, "Subvocal Speech"

NASA Develops System To Computerize Silent, "Subvocal Speech"

NASA scientists have begun to computerize human, silent reading using nerve signals in the throat that control speech.

In preliminary experiments, NASA scientists found that small, button-sized sensors, stuck under the chin and on either side of the "Adam's apple," could gather nerve signals, and send them to a processor and then to a computer program that translates them into words. Eventually, such "subvocal speech" systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists.

"What is analyzed is silent, or subauditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA's Ames Research Center, Moffett Field, Calif. "Biological signals arise when reading or speaking to oneself with or without actual lip or facial movement," Jorgensen explained.

Subvocal electromyogram (EMG) signal classification is used to control a modified web browser interface. Recorded surface signals from the larynx and sublingual areas below the jaw are filtered and transformed into features using a complex dual quad tree wavelet transform. Feature sets for six subvocally pronounced control words, 10 digits, 17 vowel phonemes and 23 consonant phonemes are trained using a scaled conjugate gradient neural network. The subvocal signals are classified and used to initiate web browser queries through a matrix based alphabet coding scheme. Hyperlinks on web pages returned by the browser are numbered sequentially and queried using digits only. Classification methodology, accuracy, and feasibility for scale up to real world human machine interface tasks are discussed in the context of vowel and consonant recognition accuracy.

Best Practice: maintain a balance amongst attention to email, chats, twitter, and work interrupts

Using Outlook Rules and Alerts and Chat tool configuration, I am managing to improve my ability to maintain a balance amongst attention to email, chats, twitter, and work interrupts.  This is a dynamic mostly-manual iterative process. Automation and/or management of this process would ideally be done using XMPP, in some form or another.

Does anyone know of XMPP-based tools or bots that can be used to manage interrupts from Outlook and Jabber/Windows Live Messenger?
