Keep key files and folders in sync with Beyond Compare

I’ve got data in multiple places, and want it that way. I need and want synchronized backups of important files and folders without the need to run any kind of TSR (terminate and stay resident) app. This is one of the reasons why I really like applications like Beyond Compare. It’s a file sync utility for Windows.

Beyond Compare allows you to quickly and easily compare files and folders in one folder tree to another. By using simple, powerful commands, you can focus on the differences you’re interested in and ignore those outside your concern. You can then merge the changes, synchronize your files, and generate reports for your records.
With Beyond Compare, you can compare entire drives and folders at high speed, checking just sizes and modified times; or you can thoroughly verify every file with byte-by-byte comparisons. FTP sites and zip files are seamlessly integrated into compare activities, so you can update your website with the touch of a button. Once you’ve found the specific files you’re interested in, Beyond Compare can intelligently pick the best way to compare and display them. Text files can be viewed and edited with syntax highlighting. Comparison rules can be tweaked specifically for documents, source code, and HTML. The text contents of a Microsoft Word and Adobe PDF files can also be compared; but not edited. Data files, executables, binary data, and images all have dedicated viewers as well, so you always have a clear understanding of the changes.

Assassin’s Creed III brings the player into the American Revolution

A lot of rumors surrounded the latest installment in the Assassin’s Creed franchise, but none of these pointed that you will be thrown into the American Revolution. Until February 29, 2012 when promotional image of the game was sent to Kotaku by a Best Buy employee. The image brought enough details to show that the game is set in North America during the American Revolution.

But now everything is official.

Assassin’s Creed III is the next major installment in the franchise, the result of almost three years of development. Surprisingly it is considered to be third title in the series, although it comes after Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. In order to bring light in this problem Jean-François Boivin of Ubisoft stated: “each numbered title in the series will introduce a new lead character and a new setting.” So, without any other debates, this is considered the official third title of the series.

In Assassin’s Creed III you will play as Connor Kenway, a new assassin who will fight for the liberty of his people and his nation in the American Revolution. To do so, you will hunt your enemies across a staggeringly large, open, and realistic world. You will unleash your lethal skills in a violent  quest that will take you from chaotic city streets to blood-soaked battlefields in the hostile American wilderness and beyond. You will meet legendary heroes  of American history, and together you will conspire to annihilate those who threaten Liberty itself.

Assassin’s Creed III comes with the all-new exclusively designed engine called Anvil Next. Thanks to this new breed engine the game will feature state of the art motion-capture, animation, and AI technology, which deliver more realistic character animations and interactions than ever before. For the first time in the franchise, Assassin’s Creed III comes with three natural cycles: dynamic weather, seasons, and time presence. These cycles will significantly affect the world around you.

Improved physics are taken a step forward. You can take down your enemies with tomahawks, pistols, and more. Use your instinctual tracking skills to learn what happened after an event, and shape your future actions accordingly. Experience the true scope of war as thousands engage in battle.

The only downside is that the PC version will have no keyboard and mouse support. Regarding this issue, Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Alex Hutchinson stated:

“We’re definitely supporting PC, we love PC, but I think it’ll be PC with a controller. I don’t see us investing hugely in a mouse and keyboard setup. I think if you want to play on PC and you want to play Assassin’s Creed, you have a controller.”

The game will be available for XBOX 360, PS3 and PC on October 30 in North America.

Can’t Beat the CS6 Beta: Adobe Photoshop Leads the Way

Adobe has done it again. Always at the cutting edge of innovation, they don’t disappoint with this latest advance in digital image editing software. From the reworked interface to the 65 new features, an incredible amount of thought has gone into the Adobe Photoshop CS6. And for the first time, Adobe has released a public beta of the software, meaning everyone can try it out until the official launch later this year.

What strikes you first is the refined, darker-grey UI, looking smart and modern, and making the colours in your photos really stand out. The handling of panels and tools is also extremely logical, with common features more accessible in the foreground and many of the controls moveable straight onto the canvas. The updated Mini Bridge panel now sits horizontally across the bottom of the screen, which, coupled with the darker interface, makes Photoshop not dissimilar to Adobe Lightroom, though both features can be customised to your preferences.

One thing Adobe boasts of with the CS6 is the increased speed of the software, which they hope will have a transformational effect on professional workflows. It looks pretty likely. Powered by the new Mercury Graphics Engine, delivering editing results virtually in real-time via common tools such as Liquify and Transform, and with the additional search tool in the layers panel, the CS6 will save users hours of work. The capacity of the CS6 to save files in the background also means no more sitting waiting for Photoshop to save extra-large files.

Noteworthy new features include additions to the Content Aware tools. Content-Aware Patch allows the user to select an area from an image and then let the computer fill in another image with the chosen section. Content-Aware Move enables users to select an object in a picture and move it to a new position, like magic!

A long-awaited highlight comes in the form of the built-in Lorem Ipsum dummy text generator, which allows the user to add dotted or dashed lines to shapes easily. New type styles provide consistent formatting and let designers apply type treatments speedily to their designs.

One of the major differences with the CS6 is that it includes some video editing tools. The tools are basic, and simple to apply – it’s just a case of pressing the Create Video Timeline button on the new Timeline tab, and off you go. Critics might argue that mobile phone apps can now provide the same tools without the need for shifting images from device to device, but in reality many people don’t use their mobile apps, or want to use a basic form of Adobe Premiere without having to sign up as a Permiere Pro user.

The Photoshop CS6 beta includes all of the features of Adobe Photoshop CS6 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 Extended, and is simple to download. As is common with betas, there are bugs, but it’s worth ignoring these to sample the enhanced design tools, incredible performance and fantastic new features of this industry-beating beta.

Empower your development team with WampServer

If there’s one thing that I know well, its software development and the web.  While its not as easy as some people might think, its tools like WampServer that make things a heck of a lot easier than they could be. WampServer is a web based development environment for Windows, and its easy to use and admin.

Having a reliable development environment for your web apps isn’t just about a decent XML/HTML editor.  You need a web server to help you view your pages and see how they would react in the wild.  WampServer is a Windows web development environment. It allows you to create web applications with Apache2, PHP and a MySQL databases and then test them to insure they function correctly.

The functionality of a web server is to allow for the surfing or browsing of web pages. In order for that to happen, they have to be served up, or made available to the file browser.  This is WampServer’s main function. I’m not going to go into additional details here.  However, from an administration point, which is where Devs and Dev Managers will be concerned, WampServer’s easy to use.

With a left click on WampServer’s tray icon, you will be able to manage your Apache and MySQL services.  This gives your applications access to both web and database services so that specific pages can be displayed and database elements called and written to from them.  You can switch services online or offline, giving access to a broader audience or only to the localhost, or I should say, to yourself.

Close all Windows with a single click

Too many windows opened at the same time will overcrowd your desktop and in the end your PC will start to stutter thanks to its loss of hardware resources. To recover from this situation, you have to start close all the unnecessary windows until you reach the optimum state of functionality.

But you can overpass this manual procedure by installing a little utility that will help you in closing all windows. Close all Windows is a small program, which resides in the system tray and can be activated by a simple click or by a fast hotkey. By just a single click on it, the utility will close all the opened windows, bringing your system to its initial state.

But what if you still need some apps to run? Close all Windows can be customized to close only the windows that you want. All you have to do is to enter the wanted programs in the block-list. From no one, all the apps in the block-list will be skipped by the utility.

Besides its main function, Close all Windows can also clean your clipboard from unwanted formats in your text. A very useful feature especially when you copy a text from an Microsoft Office document into a HTML editor.

Text-Hotkeys is another useful feature that lets you predefine texts and use them very fast in case you need them repeatedly in a context. You can define up to 28 Text-Hotkeys with your own text.
