Google Notebook in your Firefox sidebar: Cool!

From Wikipedia: Google Notebook is a free service offered by Google that provides a simple way to save and organize clips of information when conducting research online. This personal browser tool permits a user to write notes, and to clip text, images, and links from pages during browsing. These are saved to an online “notebook” with sharing and collaboration features.


Google Notebook is an interactive scratch pad for any visited web pages, offering to collect web findings within the browser window.”

I really like Google Notebook. It’s like a scrapbook, bookmarker, GTD-lister, clipper and organizer all-in-one. The main problem with it is that it consumes too much browser space. The notebook extension for Firefox is pretty pale for minimalistic purposes. Solution? Try this:


All you do is bookmark this link, then open the Properties for the new bookmark and check the box labeled “Load this bookmark in the sidebar.” Now, when you open the sidebar and click the bookmark, voila: your favorite scratch paper and post-it will now be lurking in your Firefox sidebar.

How to remove CTFMON

Ever heard of CTFMON? Try looking at the processes in the Task Manager. This one very annoying Windows program runs during start up. It is a harmless process connected with the Alternate User Input Text Input Processor and the Microsoft Office Language Bar. You may had been frustrated trying to remove it every way possible you can. I bet that you have tried deleting it in the Windows folder, in the registry, in MSconfig or used a third party registry editor. And nothing’s solving the issue. If you’re like me who’s an OSI and freeware advocate and seldom use programs like MS Office, here’s the workaround. Blast that CTFMON! This process is critical if you have a very thrifty PC memory. Now, try to go to Control panel then proceed to Add and Remove Programs. Select the Microsoft Office product and hit change. After that you will see Maintenance Mode Options, then choose Add or Remove Features and hit Next. Click on Office Shared Features and look for Alternative User Input and check Not available then hit Update. Now open Control Panel and go to Regional and language Options. Click on Language tab and Details. In the Installed Services, select and remove all items except English keyboard. For starters, the last part may seem awkwardly difficult but believe me, you can do this. Hit Start, Run and enter these commands: Regsvr32.exe /u msimtf.dll and then Regsvr32.exe /u Msctf.dll . It’s better to do these things step by step but normally, I just do the last two commands. Do what’s effective for you.

Windows XP Run Commands

I am a keyboard freak. If by chance you get a glance of my desktop screen, you will not see a single icon. I only leave my run command tab as the remaining point of command in my Windows XP OS. I inherited this behavior even during the MS-DOS days – obviously. Here is a list of the commands I usually use that you yourself can employ if ever you want to get more in tune with the command line.

Accessibility Controls – access.cpl
Add Hardware Wizard – hdwwiz.cpl
Add/Remove Programs – appwiz.cpl
Administrative Tools – control admintools
Adobe Acrobat – acrobat
Adobe ImageReady – imageready
Adobe Photoshop – photoshop
Automatic Updates – wuaucpl.cpl
Bluetooth Transfer Wizard – fsquirt
Calculator – calc
Ccleaner – ccleaner (run ccleaner)
Certificate Manager – certmgr.msc
Character Editor – eudcedit
Character Map – charmap
Check Disk Utility – chkdsk
Check Disk Utility Fix – chkdsk /f
Clear DOS screen – cls
Clipboard Viewer – clipbrd
Command Prompt – cmd
Component Services – dcomcnfg
