TwitterSnooze is a way of temporarily ‘unfollowing’ someone. It is ideal for when your Twitter friends contract conference twitterrhoea – just snooze them until they get back from the conference. The TwitterSnooze web site also suggests:
- It’s a nice way to get back at someone for saying something stupid… give them the silent treatment
- It’s a good way to ignore someone that just flooded your timeline for no good reason… but it was just a one-time offense and doesn’t merit permanent unfollowing.
When Google Sites was first launched in February 2008, it was part of the Google Apps group aimed at enterprises . Now anyone can create a wiki web site using Google Sites, without the need to have their own domain. You can keep it private, share it with a small group of people or make the whole thing public. You can also choose who is allowed to edit the pages on your wiki. The pages are hosted on Google at http://sites.google.com/%5Byour-website%5D and you can have as many pages as you like for free.
The WYSIWYG editor allows you to format the text; embed documents, calendars, photos, videos and gadgets directly into the page; and offer options for commenting. You can even customise it with your own logo. You can view previous versions of a page, roll back or revert to a previous version of the page, and receive email alerts of changes to pages.
There is a short tutorial that takes you through the basics of setting up a Google Site.
Page2RSS monitors web pages for changes and notifies you of those changes by RSS. Simply type in the URL of the page you wish to monitor and then add the feed URL to your favourite feed reader. Excellent tool for pages that do not offer their own RSS feeds. Hat tip to Phil Bradley for this.
There are several ways in which you can add RSS feed to Outlook 2007 but the quickest way seems to be:
1. On the Tools menu, click Account Settings.
2. On the RSS Feeds tab, click New.
3. In the New RSS Feed dialog box, type or press CTRL+V to paste the URL of the RSS Feed.
4. Click Add. In the next box you can change the folder in which it is to be stored.
5. Click OK
