Barcodes: An Exciting New Language! Posted 30 Jan 2011 12:39
At work last week, there was this one particular product with a poorly printed barcode that couldn't be read by our barcode readers. The solution: Print new barcodes manually. However there aren't many simple online tools that do just that.
So during this weekend I decided to invest my time in researching barcodes. Fortunately, the Wikipedia's articles on EAN-8, UPC-12 and EAN-13 contained sufficient information for me to learn them properly. It was a lot of fun!
So to demonstrate my understanding of barcodes to myself, I created this little program which is compliant with EAN-8, UPC-12 & EAN-13 formatted barcodes. Check it out!!!
iPhoto: Reclaim Your Memory! Posted 23 Jan 2011 00:45
As a Mac user, iPhoto is a regularly used application. It's fantastic for easy photo editing, and beautifully organises your photos. Personally, I love the face recognition technology.
However, as your photo collection grows, so does the database size. So if your looking for ways to free up your hard drive space, iPhoto is a great place to start.
“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” I hear you cry… “I don't want to delete any of my photos!!!!!!”
That's the best part about this neat trick. You don't have to! You can save gigabytes of memory without deleting any photos. And here's why.
