Online meeting using Skype

  Now you can use your skype for online meetings by adding a plugin which is absolutely free.
  Skype having 2 diff plugin for this kind of feature.
  1. Mikogo Plugin
  2. Yugma Team Collaboration

  I tried Mikogo , it works great in all windows (NT, 2000, XP, Vista).
  but for me Yugma Team Collaboration getting crashed.

Mikogo is a free desktop sharing tool that can be employed for a range of professional, academic, or personal uses, including:
- online meetings
- product demonstrations
- online presentations
- remote support
- online consultations
- webinars
- and many more uses!

  check this
           Mikogo -
           Yugma -

  I think this will be very useful for our internal meetings.

Google competitor Zoho...

I can say Zoho is the real competitor for google in the online application products, because they are providing more number of online applications and more depth features in all the application.

Word, Excel, Power point, Notepad, CRM, Project Management, Chart, Meeting , Wiki etc
Now everything is in online, for free.

You can use your google or Yahoo account to use these applications.

I can tell you one feature which Zoho provides in his Word application, which I never ever think of. 

We know we can make a word document as readonly for some users and  give permission for some specific users to edit.
But using Zoho, even further you can configure a particular paragraph to be readonly for particular user. Even thought they have the rights to edit the document, they cant edit a particular paragraph.  How is this?

It supports most of the browsers, including safari (I think brad will be happy to use this in his mac), and chrome.

JsDoc - Open Source toolkit for JavaScript Documentation

JsDoc,  this is a very nice and well documented Open Source Toolkit for Javascript documentation. This supports all javascript frame work(including YUI). 

So this will be a good solution to avoid and make our code very clear and structured way.

Have a look at it:

JsDoc Toolkit is an application, written in JavaScript, for automatically generating template-formatted, multi-page HTML (or XML, JSON, or any other text-based) documentation from commented JavaScript source code.

Based on the project, this was renamed "Jsdoc Toolkit" during development as it grew into more than a simple version upgrade.

Duplicate Code Detection Using Clone Digger

   "Clone Digger is a new tool detects duplicate code in Python sources. It has been applied to several open-source projects, which found that about 12% of their code consisted of clones. This article explains how to use Clone Digger in your own project and gives you the theoretical background in the related fields."

   I found this tool from python magazine( I am really impressed with this tool. Very handy and very very useful.
