Return from an offline sojourn

I was offline for a few days over the past fortnight, and found it really refreshing. Without the continual distraction of the internet I was able to concentrate on achieving a lot of things that had been niggling me for a while.

Amongst those was the addition of some long overdue 'luxury features' for TimeSnapper that I hope will make it more meaningful for a lot of users. (No doubt I'll bombard you with the details when we release the next upgrade).

With the internet out of the way, my 'at home' productivity went from its usually mid-40's mark to a whopping 98%.

There were a lot of blog entries I jotted down notes for, but now I'm just happy not to contribute too much to the hyper-noise of the internet for one more day ;-).

But here's an example of an 'awesome Atli tooltip' found deep inside the codebase for TimeSnapper.

        Me.Label4.Text = "Productive Applications:"

        Me.ToolTip1.SetToolTip(Me.Label4, "Productive Applications are those that relate to your work." & vbCrLf & _

                                          "Solitaire, for example, is NOT a productive application, " & vbCrLf & _

                                          "unless you are working on becoming the world champion of " & vbCrLf & _


It's these kind of gems that help me enjoy work on this product more and more with every version.

Now, back to the usual un-productive fare:
