Ubuntu & Me: Accessories

Most of these are default with Ubuntu, however a few additional programs spice up my OS.

1. ConvertAll

This was an acquisition from a message board recommendation and it’s handy for cooking and sewing projects. Their website offers this clever description:

With ConvertAll, you can combine the units any way you want. If you want to convert from inches per decade, that’s fine. Or from meter-pounds. Or from cubic nautical miles. The units don’t have to make sense to anyone else.

2. Klok

Not really a necessity but fun to play with, Klok is a personal time clock for Adobe Air (I’ll rave about Air in a later blog post.) It allows you to click a button and begin timing your progress on a project, organize your projects by category (or course number in my case) and see just how much time you spend on ENG 395, JINS 311, or Facebook stalking, if you really want to know.

Look how busy I am!

3. Disk Usage Analyzer

This is a default utility and is pretty self-explanatory, but it gives such a beautiful display. Words don’t do it justice.

Pretty rings.

Funnier Example. Look closely and LOL.

If you have others, please share!
