I don’t know why I committed to “reviving” this blog to its former glory; I clearly lack the motivation and focus to actually write something. That being said, I’m going to continue putting together a monthly review post because that’s what I said I would do.
System Ninja 3.1.1 was released over at SingularLabs a couple of days ago. There were lots of improvements, but my favorite is renaming the ‘End Selected Process(es)‘ button to ‘Force Quit.’ It’s finally clear what the Process Manager tool is actually for: killing programs that just won’t die.
Nucleus is an effort to bring the Mac menu bar to Windows. I started the project over three years ago, but sadly had to abandon it in late-2013 to focus on other projects.
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve slowly restarted development on Nucleus. Windows 8 and Windows 10’s interface changes broke most of Nucleus’ UI code, so I basically started from scratch. Staring from a clean sheet of paper proved to be a good decision, because this new iteration of Nucleus is significantly more smooth and stable than its previous incarnations.
The goal of Nucleus going forward will be to bring all of SingularLabs’ tools together into one streamlined interface. Remembr has already been incorporated, as has ProcessAlive. I’m also planning to build a robust plugin API so that our other software titles can integrate with Nucleus as well.
Nucleus continues to be a tool that I really want to be able to use everyday. Hopefully there’s other people out there who feel the same.
There’s a new hosting plan available on The Web Atom. We’re now offering “high-capacity” shared hosting services to target those customers who outgrow our traditional shared hosting, but aren’t yet ready to move into the world of dedicated servers.
From my announcement post:
Today we’re unveiling Nucleus; our extremely powerful, high capacity web hosting plan. Nucleus has been built to handle the traffic of large online stores, popular blogs or busy forums; without losing the simplicity of shared hosting.
This is my second ever monthly review and, truth be told, I feel as though I accomplished less than desired in August. I went back to university to do some courses in marketing and international business, mostly to fill in some gaps in my skillset. Unfortunately academia is time consuming, but I’ve still managed hit most of the goals I set for the month.
