On my Mac/Windows PC…Celtx Scriptwriting Software

Celtx Scriptwriting Software

Celtx icon

It is said that everyone in Los Angeles has a script to sell, so the need for a program like Celtx is great. I first came across this free scriptwriting software a few years ago when I was looking for an alternative to the very expensive and heavily copy-protected programs that were currently in use on most productions. When you are just starting out, paying $400-$500 for a scriptwriting program could be very difficult.

Since that time, Celtx has branched out into premium services, including cloud access and collaboration tools, pre-planning and storyboarding tools and a commercial version of the product. While I don't write in script format a lot, my wide -- a college professor and teacher of television and movie writing -- regularly recommends it as a free alternative for her students.

Celtx also now offers a cloud-version of Celtx that works directly in your web browser as well as iPhone, iPad and Android apps.

From the Celtx Web Site...

"Celtx puts powerful writing, pre-visualisation and productivity tools right at your fingertips, putting you in control of how your story takes shape.

Write scripts, store creative files and collaborate with partners."

This DIY domino clock tells the time using three LED-lit tiles via Arduino Blog

After coming across Carbon Design Group’s Domino Wall Clock, which uses electronic magnetic coil motors to reveal white dots, Instructables member “Kothe” decided to create a simplified version of their own. The clock is comprised of three custom dominoes — the first tile for hours, the second and third for minutes. Unlike its inspiration, Kothe’s device uses addressable RGB LEDs as dots that allow for a variety of colors to shine through.

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
