We are all kinds of excited here at MacMerc for this year’s World Wide Developer’s Conference. You know you’ll be there (virtually speaking). Now you can be there in style, with a few free downloads…
First off, there’s the mater of connecting. For those of you living the mobile lifestyle, you’ll want to take a look at iStumbler. This little program sniffs out open AirPort networks and gets you connected to them.
These AppleScripts automate your connection to the internet and can launch applications and even sign-in to chat services. You will have to be comfortable with AppleScript to do some minor editing on these, but these scripts are a great way to get online and straight into the action!
If you join the MacMerc live chat via iChat, this handy app will let you extract a text version of your chat logs. These are much easier to read and edit than the format that iChat stores them in.
Undoubtedly, you’ll meet some new friends at the live chat event. The Contact Creator service is a fast way to make a new Address Book contact from any selected text. You’ll be able to add those chat alias’ to your Address Book without missing any of the action.
For those of you going to the conference (or those playing along at home) you can download the complete agenda for your Palm device. It comes in an eBook and Web Clipping format.
Okay, now you’re all hooked up and ready for Monday and the big keynote. I hope to see you all in the chat rooms!
