Wanted: Multitouch gestures for windows 8.1 on Macbook Pro Retina with touchpad/trackpad

Windows 8.1 supports multi touch gestures….but as of oct 13th 2014 they don’t work if your running Windows /8.1 on a Macbook Pro( Bootcamp 5.1 ) with a trackpad…. Windows doesn’t seem to have the precision trackpad settings under the “mouse and touchpad” settings. I have tried Trackpad++ …. it has a very limited set of gestures to use. Better than nothing…. free to try… $15 to buy. Wish it had: ability to link keystrokes and hotkeys to multi touch gestures. I spent at least an hour and a half looking around and Googling for things like: like strokeit gestures but for windows 8.1 and  multi touch trackpad gestures windows 8.1. I didn’t find anything worthwhile. Maybe next I’ll try search and learn more about how good the multi touch gestures are in Windows 8.1 and if there are any additional applications out there that can improve the experience.

Windows onedrive doesn’t support file revisions… Sticking with dropbox

I was considering switching over to Microsoft’s OneDrive because they give me one free terabyte with my annual office subscription. The OneDrive functionality is already baked right into Windows 8.1 so I decided to investigate further. For me, as a website developer OneDrive will not work for me because it does not support file revisions. Meaning if I have a file open in Photoshop and make lots of edits and saves throughout the day as I’m working on it: Dropbox will allow me to roll back to any of the previous versions made within the last 30 days. Side note: I’m not sure if the collective file size of all of those previous versions counts against my drive space allowance. Either way I’m happy.

I don’t think Google drive supports versioning either.

Found: Bootstrap 3 online table or grid editor or generator

I need to put a table/grid of info on a website and I want it to be responsive so it looks good on all devices ( yes, that is what responsive means so I didn’t need to add that extra info ) …. On the day I originally wrote this post I could not find what I needed… but today I tried again using a different search phrase… “Bootstrap 3 layout generator” gave me a couple results that look promising! Read on to view the two results I found. Continue reading

Was looking for “super simple idea landing page sales creator”..

Sometimes you have ideas that you’d like to test out…. but simple logistics like buying a domain name, setting up a website, finding photos, tinkering with the design, and the like end up getting in the way and preventing the idea from coming to life. I’ve searched for a “super simple idea landing page sales creator” tool many of times and found nothing that satisfies. To anyone out there considering developing the idea please let me know in the comments if you ever develop it!

Thanks
