Jing is an amazing tool for capturing and sharing video and still images from your desktop.

I have used it to make easy "How to..." videos for staff, students, and parents.

I am also having students use it to create videos while they are using different types of software. So, when they create something great, they can share it with the rest of us. It is a wonderful to for peer coaching and collaboration.

If you start using, Jing please share your ideas here.

Here is the link for Jing:

Running the Mac OS X maintenance scripts

Running the Mac OS X maintenance scripts

Mac OS X is a UNIX-based system. UNIX systems run scheduled maintenance routines — known as maintenance scripts — to clean up a variety of System logs and temporary files. By default, these are executed between 03:15 and 05:30 hours local time, depending on the script.

If your Mac is shut down or in sleep mode during these hours, the maintenance scripts will not run.

This Dashboard Widget, Maintidget, will let you run the scripts when you choose.
