I am using Sublime Text now for years and this is the best text editor to use if you are a developer or just want a reliable text editor. It is easy to use and also very powerful if you want to use all the tools it can provide to make life easy. The best part is you don’t have to keep on saving the file, it does that automatically so even if your PC crashes and restarts you can get your content of the file back.
Sublime Text is available for Mac, Windows and Linux. It is a free editor which you can download it from https://www.sublimetext.com/3 Download it today and check it out, I assure you will not regret it.
OpenSnitch is a GNU/Linux port of the Little Snitch application firewall.
OpenSnitch does is track internet requests made by applications you have installed. OpenSnitch allows you to create rules for which apps to allow to access the internet and which to block. Each time an application that does not have a rule in place tries to access the internet, a dialog box appears. This dialog box gives you the option to allow or block the connection.
You can also decide whether this new rule applies to the process, the exact URL it is attempting to reach, the domain that it is attempting to reach, to this single instance, to this session or forever.
Jumpcut is a macOS clipboard manager that provides Mac users with quick, intuitive access to their clipboard history, with an interface that stays out of their way. It’s been around for over fifteen years, saving users time and preventing frustration whenever they need to use a phone number, URL, or code snippet that they had just a minute ago. It’s absolutely free and open-source under the MIT License.
It is one app I cannot live without on Mac. You can download the version of Jumpcut is 0.71 by clicking here.
To get at a clipping, choose one from under the Jumpcut menu item. Or, set a global hotkey (from the Preferences menu) and begin using Jumpcut via keyboard. (The default value for this hotkey is Command + Option + V.)

As we keep on using our Laptop / PC it tends to slow down also it starts accumulating Apps and lots of files which are not needed. Also, a lot of OS updates and Apps updates tend to accumulate lots of files and logs which are not required anymore, this also tends to slow down the system. Now I am making this habit to just Format my laptops both at home and office once every year. But before doing so make sure you backup all the critical files you need.
Following is the process I follow:
My most critical files are either backed up using Dropbox or Google Drive.
Those files which are residing locally, I go thru them and delete those not needed.
Back up all the files on an external drive.
Make a list of software which I need. I keep installable of them backed on the external drive too.
Next, I just format the drive and install the software. I use Mac so it quite an easy process which you can check out in this video (You have to make sure you can connect to the Internet as Mac reinstall requires internet)
After reinstall which takes roughly 30 mins or so. Install all the software I need.
I start putting files which I backed up in organized fashion.
That’s it, You get the feel of a brand new laptop and also clean up your dirt which keeps creeping on by a year of usage. I strongly suggest you do the same and feel the experience of bliss and happiness which I get out of it :). Try out and let me know your experience in the comments below.
