Mr. CodeBoy




Mr. CodeBoy does not spend a lot of time surfing the internet, but he does have a few regular destinations that have some value.

MacScripter is the absolute number one place to acquire AppleScripts, as well as learn how to write your own. The forums are extremely active, and the volunteers proffering advice are as polite as they are knowledgable.


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has produced a large number of video segments about the life of Jesus Christ. They are anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes long, and very well done. Use them in your home.


Are you tired of using thumb drives, CDs, or email to transfer files between computers? As long as each of your machines has internet access, Dropbox serves as an extremely handy remote drive. With free and paid plans available, you'll wonder how you ever got along without it.


Photoshop™ users of any skill level can pick up some nifty tricks at Photoshop Lady. There is a wide assortment of tutorials for just about anything imaginable.


How about clean reading material? Rated Reads publishes reviews and ratings for novels, non-fiction works, young adult titles, and more. The reviewers contribute new work fairly often, so check there regularly to see if that book your brother told you about is worth looking into. They take requests.


The LDS church is famous for genealogy & family history. One of their most interesting and enjoyable projects involves indexing a variety of records: Census, Military, Ship Manifests, and many others. In essence, indexers create electronic, searchable records from decades (or more) old documents that people can then utilize to find their ancestors. You do NOT need to be a member of their church to volunteer, and the software is free. Give it a try!


Would you like to know exactly what time it is? The US Naval Observatory has a simple, yet nifty page to tell you.


Every day, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) publishes an Astronomy Picture of the Day. Some images are more interesting than others, but Mr. CodeBoy thinks that their Archive is best starting place.


Dan Rodney is a professional designer, and all around nice guy, at least that what you read at his web site. The linked page is a vast repository of keyboard shortcuts for Mac OS X.
