My apologies, my account at Notion still has the following note:

"Upgrade to go unlimited
This workspace has used 208 of its 1000 block storage limit (21%)."

I assume that is no longer operative, and I will have to take it up with Notion.

Glad you find some things useful.
I agree with MC. I spent 5 hours testing and researching that site before I wrote it up, created graphics and posted the article, which added another hour or so.
I would greatly appreciate it if people would do a little homework before posting something inaccurate about something I've written. Simply scrolling down their main page or checking their pricing page before making a comment here would have cleared up the issue.

As far as Notion goes, I signed up for a free personal account and tested the features before I wrote anything about the site.
The main page says free for personal use if you scroll down the page. I've attached a screenshot (below) from this URL so you can see what it looks like.

I'm not sure why your getting that message but here's their pricing, you can see the Personal plan is free.

I enjoy reading your announcements and frequently find gems of useful freeware. That being said, your headline tells us that Notion is "now free to use". When I went to the Notion website, I found the same freemium restrictions that the app has had for years. I would have appreciated an acknowledgement that, while Notion is a nice and useful app, nothing there is new.

In my training as a telephone tech I was told to do the job you were assigned and respect and ignore the customer. Sent on a job to install a black, cv set in a garden apt. After constant knocking, a guy in pajamas let me in and told me he wanted the phone on the right side of the bed. He jumped into bed with his wife/girl friend and preceded to make love (while giggling). I tried to ignore them and was lucky to find my dial tone and a 42a block at the location that the customer wanted. Job took about half-an-hour and I let myself out.

Evernote is better at adding information of all sorts from around the web. It has a scanner and supports a more file types. It's interface is less user friendly and cluttered since it's been adding features piecemeal over the years.

Notion is stonger at organization. It supports long form structured notes that can be nested and placed in hierarchies (great if you like to structure notes).

Notion has database and table support (think Google Docs + Google Sheets), code highlighting, allows comments insides notes, & has great collaboration/sharing features. It has more expansive editing, you can write in Markdown, use keyboard shortcuts, and switch views. It has a gallery view for photos and videos.

Notion syncs all your devices for free and offers all features free for personal use. Evernote has paid plans to access features other than note taking. As far as I can tell, there are no limits on things like note sizes or uploading and adding material. Evernote's free plan has a 60MB limit.
Notion has a page showcasing uses here:
https://www.notion.so/personal

Both are great for note taking. Evernote is a mature product and is focused on note taking.
Notion launched in 2016 as a more fully featured product with an emphasis on creating and organizing information.

It's actively developed and responsive to community requested features
.

Both are good products, using one or the other is more a matter of what you need.

You need internet access and a device, and, some devices have no unzipping capability (for various reasons), and some devices are restricted, you can't install software on them. Libraries are an example - the local library doesn't allow installation of software and the software that's available for use is limited, so an online alternative is needed for some activities.

I usually Bandzip because it will unzip the file and open the folder in Windows Explorer where the unzipped file is.

Best Free Video Editing Program 1 month 1 week ago pipso_facto

I've just been testing some video editors so I thought I'd share my findings. Prior to this I did a small amount of video editing using Adobe Premiere Elements on Windows XP and Pinnacle Studio on Windows Vista. I'd describe myself as an advanced beginner - I've got a reasonable idea of what video editors should do but less knowledge of the fancy bells and whistles. Typically what I've been doing is simple cuts/deletes and adding titles and music. More recently I've been getting into stabilization, small rotates to level the horizon, zooming a bit and putting 2 video tracks together side by side to compare before and after stabilization.

Over the last month I've tried these editors and I'd rank them in this order for my purposes:

Shotcut
Video Editor - it's part of Microsoft Windows 10, scroll down the start menu to V to find it
NCH VideoPad
OpenShot
VirtualDub - tested its stabilization capabilities

Conclusion: all video editors have problems! I've ended up doing different bits of my videos in different editors. Eg I like the Windows Video Editor titles - very easy and quick to get something that looks good. I like VideoPad's stabilization (to me it's subjectively slightly better than Shotcut and VirtualDub, but there's not much in it) and Shotcut is the most reliable at producing a usable output video file from the various video clips, photos and music.

I used the free version of VideoPad for home use and it never prevented me from exporting video saying it was a paid feature. I did have problems exporting video for other reasons though. I did not experience any stability issues.

I've put my specific comments under the review of each editor I tried.

VirtualDub is not listed - I noticed some comments on it so it was probably in the list once and I can see why it was removed - it's very bare bones and doesn't work with MP4 out of the box, although I found a codec to solve that. When I was researching stabilization I found some forum comments elsewhere that said VirtualDub's is very good. To do stabilization in VirtualDub I downloaded "deshaker" from a site in Sweden - it hasn't been updated since 2014. Deshaker is very configurable and I followed the simple instructions. It did not do any better than the stabilization in VideoPad or Shotcut.

As there's no review of the built in Windows Video Editor, here are my comments on that:

Windows 10 Video Editor

It comes as standard with Windows 10 and is implemented as a "modern" Windows app (it's actually a part of Microsoft Photos that also comes with Windows 10). Video Editor looks a lot like how I remember Microsoft Movie Maker on XP, although I only ever looked at that and didn't produce any video output with it.

Ease of use is the key here. It doesn't have the multi track timeline of many other video editors. Instead video clips, titles, photos etc are put onto a storyboard. It's easy to split a video clip into 2 sections or trim the start and end. You can also add an overall soundtrack of background music.

It gives you some control over the output resolution but not bitrate which ends up high with correspondingly large files. When I first started using it I put the finished video into OpenShot and re-encoded there to get smaller lower bitrate video files.

The location of project files and temporary files is all hidden. When you start it shows you a list of projects you've saved plus you can start a new one. This is fine for what it is - a simple and easy to use video editor, rather than something powerful and serious where you might want to take backups of project files.

It's similar in capabilities to iMovie on the iPad. It would be great for a holiday video: titles, photos and video clips plus music all edited and looking good with minimal effort. Video Editor allows photos to look a bit less static by having them move/zoom a little giving a Ken Burns effect.

view
OpenShot 1 month 1 week ago pipso_facto

This is one of the first video editors I tried.

This is a typical open source product: it's a bit unintuitive and lacking in polish.

In one video I added my own soundtrack from an mp3 file and found that in the output video, the audio had a lot of strange artefacts at the end rather than a nice clean finish.

It seems light on features.

I have found it useful to create a lower bitrate version of an existing video. It did it a lot faster than a general purpose video format converter I use.

VideoPad Video Editor 1 month 1 week ago pipso_facto

I used the free version of VideoPad for home use and it never prevented me from exporting video saying it was a paid feature. I did not experience any stability issues.

This would be my go to video editor if it weren't for problems exporting the finished video, sometimes. When I initiated the export process, sometimes it would finish very quickly - appear in the completed videos list but it would produce a very small useless output file, less than 1kbyte. It looks like a bug. When I hit this problem I couldn't find any workaround to make it export properly: tried other output formats and various small tweaks to no avail.

So having put in several hours effort editing a video and then finding it won't export is a major problem even if it works the rest of the time.

It's a shame as this is a very accomplished piece of software. It works fairly intuitively, very familiar to someone who's used other video editing software.

I do still like its stabilize - subjectively on my videos it was marginally better than the stabilize in Shotcut which is my go to video editor (and VirtualDub which I also tested). VideoPad lets you Stabilize from the project area and it produces a stabilized video file directly from there without using the problematic export function.

I suspect that VideoPad's titles are better than Shotcut's but I had already given up with VideoPad before I had a chance to try them.

Apart from not exporting video files properly, here are my other criticisms of VideoPad:

* In most video editors, there is a timecode representing the cursor position on the timeline in the form: "hh:mm:ss:frame_num". The last number goes 0-29 or 0-24 depending on the frame rate. In VideoPad the last 3 digits are milliseconds rather than frame number. Takes a bit of getting used to.

* When adding a video to the project area, it can take a while "indexing video". Then there's a grey/blue progress line and high CPU usage, presumably while it creates a temporary preview file.

* It also uses green progress lines on the edited video in the final timeline probably to show how far it's got in creating a preview of the edited timeline. Again that can take a while to go all green. CPU usage is high while it's doing this.

* I installed the free version and confirmed on each startup that I was using it for personal use. After a couple of weeks it told me the trial was coming to an end soon. Then it told me some features would be disabled unless I purchased it. Finally I'm back to confirming on each startup that I'm using it for personal use. I don't know which, if any, features have been disabled. I was never informed I was using a trial version when I first installed it or subsequently. I don't mind if the free version is limited but it would be nice to know what the limitations are. I can still use multiple video tracks in this "trial expired" free version.

Shotcut 1 month 1 week ago pipso_facto

This is currently my go to video editor, but only because of problems using NCH VideoPad.

Initial impression: it looks familiar with a timeline and a project area to drop clips etc.

The main problem is that it doesn't work like other similar-looking editors. If you have a video on the timeline and want to drop another in front of it, it "overwrites" rather than pushing the existing clip up the timeline. So you end up having to Google how to do the basics and watch a few tutorial videos to do anything. It's a frustrating learning curve, if only the user interface worked like all the others!

Having mastered it, it does a lot.

Some of the other oddities compared to other video editors:

* You don't need to put all the clips, photos etc into the project area and then drag to the timeline. They can be opened, previewed and dragged directly to the timeline

* You can produce an output video directly from the project area (known as a playlist) without using the timeline at all

* Deleting from the timeline by default doesn't close the gap - this has actually turned out to be useful, but not how other editors work. It is easy to close the gap later or there is a setting to control this (but does that setting do something else undesirable, I haven't found out)

* Creating consistent looking titles requires a bit of effort as by default the font size is as large as will fit the text in the text box resulting in different size titles for different pieces of text. This can be fixed but it takes experimentation to get the size of text looking good, it would be nice if the defaults looked good out of the box.

Overall it's not quite as polished as some but is better than a lot of open source.

It's one of the few pieces of software that uses my laptop's AMD Radeon graphics - it gets used for the video preview in the upper part of the screen (the video you see when you press play in the editor). It doesn't get used for final video file rendering however.

After upgrading LibreOffice 6.4.6 to 7.0.0 last week, it was disappointing to find that graphics of documents in the recently-opend pane of Writer were no longer displayed, and that the color pallet had become darker (the two most obvious differences that I encountered).

Since the updated compatibility is not a current benefit for my own needs, I rolled back to 6.4.6 (requiring uninstalling 7.0.0).

No harm, no foul - but I do hope that those two relatively minor issues are addressed in a future update ('guess I'll have to make a post in their thread).

Otherwise, L.O. remains an awesome application (particularly for a Windows user for whom the last version of MS Office that was even merely acceptable was 7).

view
LibreOffice 7 Released: New Look, Several Improvements 1 month 2 weeks ago Bruce_Fraser

LibreOffice is certainly an outstanding piece of programming work, by hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
However, I don't use it, because it's still missing some basic things. For instance: when I'm using Writer in a 30 page document and want to go to the next page, the Page Down key should get me there. In LibreOffice, it shows part of the current page and part of the next page.
When I go back and forth several pages, I am lost, having no idea where I am. In Microsoft Word, Page Down means exactly that. Simple is good.

The comments in the LibreOffice forum defending the current system are not helpful. Things like "it's a word processor" -- meaning it's not a page processor, so don't expect it to display pages. This feature has been requested for many years, but it's clearly not important to the folks in charge.

FDA List of Hand Sanitizers to Avoid (PSA) 1 month 3 weeks ago not recognized

It's absolutely amazing to me that there are so many people willing to poison each other and/or cause them to believe they have protection from a deadly illness, while having none. 135 companies!

This year, for the first time in more than half a century of existing, I really despair. This species is reaping EXACTLY what it has sown.

LibreOffice 7 Released: New Look, Several Improvements 1 month 3 weeks ago rolandflorida

Yes it is working correct now for me (also in Firefox).
I did forget to mention that when I hovered over your previous link, it appeared to show the correct link, but took me to the other site.
Funny you got an error page and I got the other site.
Well, all done now.
Thanks

Thanks for the heads up, I changed the link. It was working yesterday, but the betanews browser tab read https. The tab has the article title today. The link resolved to a search error page in Firefox today..

Your link leads me to homeimprovement.com.

It took me a bit to see the difference between your link and the actual link - your link has "http://https.com" before the beta news link:

https://betanews.com/2020/08/05/libreoffice-7/ - real link

http://www.https.com//betanews.com/2020/08/05/libreoffice-7/ - your link

Thanks for this!
Opera does not have this but has instead an extension called
Redirect Bypasser
which seems similar though not identical.

It doesn't block email to your real address, it provides an anonymous email address that you can share with anyone, send from, and reply from. To work, you have to send something using the Mailmask email/alias you created when you signed up. You can add as many email addresses as you like.

I'm slightly confused by how this actually works, despite having tested it out. If someone sends me unwanted mail to my real email address, how does this block it? How will I know what has been sent?
