Ergosign - Company website ..

This is the kind of information I would like to have in front of my eyes every day...I noticed the style in site's web design, their projects gave me an impression of their well done work ..
They have the experience that makes my say "If I were interested in developing a product I would count on their expertise". And it's not advertising, I really like very much their work.
It's interesting though that I discovered a lot of companies or consultants covering the User Interface and Usability issues established in Germany .. just one example: Karsten Lentzsch(JGoodies web site).

Capivara - Java filesync

Capivara - Java filesync: "Capivara is a two pane file manager with support for SFTP and FTP servers. Capivara is not an ordinary file manager because it adds synchronization features like comparing timestamps or SHA-1 hash values."
I was attracted by the declared ability to synchronize two folders .. I must recognize that.

Google Talk IM Launch

Google Talk - Last days I was more interested in using the brand new Google Talk instead of using the brave old GAIM.. the excitement is obvious ... and the simplicity and voice conversation quality convinced me to have simultaneously two active IM clients. Yes, I know that is possible to use GAIM for everything :) .. but since I use for now Windows, Google Talk looks more appealing ..
Give it a try, give me a sign :)

Subversion: Subversion project is to build a version control system that is a compelling replacement for CVS in the open source community. The software is released under an Apache/BSD-style open source license"
It's a piece of software I better get use to, because it has great potetial and strength .. and could replace cvs by it's features and stuff. For Eclipse users there is a plugin similar in functionalities with the cvs-implicit one .. Subclipse
