Moving from Org-mode

I just love writing outlines and lists. For this purpose, Org-mode is pretty great; I've been using it to study for about a year and a half. But I've never been really comfortable using it, and it's because of Emacs, the platform it's made for. I know I'm going to get hell for this. Everyone … Continue reading Moving from Org-mode

Screen Stream on Firefox

I recently tried an app called Screen Stream to cast my phone's screen to my laptop to save my eyes from straining.

Offline Blog Editors I previously wrote about Zoundry … Continue reading Apps I don’t Use Anymore

Unfortunately, you can't download the stories in a convenient … Continue reading How to Download Stories from Fanfiction.net

App Showdown #1: WP Write vs ScribeFire Next, tested using WordPress

After a long search, I have come to conclusion that there's no good blog editor for Linux. Some have ugly interface. Some have ridiculously limited set of features. Some won't let you save drafts or post your writings. And all of them haven't been updated for years, or have been discontinued. (Hell, I even wrote … Continue reading App Showdown #1: WP Write vs ScribeFire Next, tested using WordPress
