Win8 BTD – [B]oot[T]o[D]esktop

Win8 BTD LogoI already wrote about how you can boot directly into the classic desktop in Windows 8. However those, who do not like to get their hands dirty while working with the Windows registry or just want quickly switch back and forth, should pay me their close attention for a moment. I developed a tiny tool which is called Win8 BTD where BTD stands for Boot To Desktop.
Win8 BTD is a small tool written by me, which does not more or less than to set the appropriate settings in the registry, so that Windows 8 launches directly into the classic desktop. Of course, any changes made can also be undone with a single click, if you would rather want to start again directly into the new tile view.

Update: WordPress2Doc 1.1.0.0

Wordpress2Doc Version 1.1.0.0Short info: After Habared has kindly told me on GitHub that my “WordPress2Doc” tool has a few problems with UTF-8 characters, I took time and wrote a small fix.
In fact, I had missed the character encoding in the HTML code that is embedded in both, the generated .docx- and .pdf-documents.
The latest, UTF-8 compatible version of WordPress2Doc can be found both in the main article and on GitHub. I would appreciate any feedback!

WordPress2Doc – How to convert WordPress articles into Word and PDF documents

WordPress2Doc is a small program I developed, that enables you to convert your WordPress articles into Word (docx) documents. In addition to the Word format (.docx) the PDF format (.pdf) is available as a target format. For the conversion, the program makes use of the WordPress export XML file and can convert the items inside the export file in one or both of the aforementioned formats.
Tip: The download link for WordPress2Doc is at the end of this article! Who needs no further information, can now confidently scroll to the bottom of the article.
How to convert WordPress articles into pdf and docx files
To convert your WordPress articles into .docx or .pdf format, the relevant articles must be exported from WordPress at first. This can be done at WordPress’ backend. Therefore open the administration page of your blog and navigate to the “Tools-> Export” menu in the WordPress backend.

TagKeywordFinder – a free WordPress SEO plugin

Last while browsing I came across a WordPress plugin called wpSuggest. This links Google’s autocomplete function (the thing called “Google Suggest”, which ensures that you get suggestions while typing your question) with the title field in the WordPress editor. So if you write an article in the WordPress backend and type the title wpSuggest will make suggestions for the perfect title.
I liked the way the Google Suggest feature was used here. However, I found that the combination of Google Suggest and the input field for the keywords/tags would make much more sense.  So in short I have developed a small WordPress plugin named “TagKeywordFinder”. This plugin works similar to the above mentioned wpSuggest, with the small difference that it is used when tagging the article. And this is how it looks like:

(If you’re not intrested in the setup process, skip it to 1:00.)
When you begin to assign tags for your […]

MySpace Loader – sourcecode available for download

myspace loader iconAs one or the other user has already noticed, my myspace download tool, called “MySpace Loader”, unfortunately doesn’t work any longer. This is due to the final changeover of the MySpace website. Last months there was still a transitional phase in which both, the old and the new version of the website, was accessible. But since some days, only the new site is still online and by that reason my MySpace Loader does not work any longer.
Since I currently lack the time to rewrite the MySpace Loader for the new page, but I think it would also be a shame to let the project die, I have decided to publish the source code of MySpace Loader. Because I’ve often got mails in the last 2 years, in which I have been asked to give out the source code, I […]
