Applications of the day
I've came across few interesting apps recently, hope you find them useful as well:
- grep --color=auto - did you know that old good grep(1) in coreutils supports colored output with searched string/regexp highlighted?
- F-Spot - a photo management software for GNOME (I've seen it in Jakub Steiner's blog as well as next two apps). Maybe I should try it instead of gthumb.
- xvidcap - a nice screen grabbing tool, which can be used for creating an instructional videos from the contents of the screen.
- Key Status Monitor - a small GTK+ app for monitoring the status of modifier and other keys - useful mainly together with xvidcap.
Hmm, when I get mad enough to explore the dark corners of e-learning, xvidcap and key-status can be useful...

OKay, I tried F-Spot this weekend -- it seems the program maintains its own storage for all the images, so unlike gthumb it forces its own way of dealing with the images. Also, its red-eye reduction feature is next to useless. What is your F-Spot experiance? Did I miss something obvious?

Actually, I have not tried f-spot - I wanted to do so, but I have given up when I found that f-spot is mono-based.
