We do more and more things on the web, and more and more complicated. So we really appreciate having tools that make our lives a little easier.
DotGal, working with Dinahosting, one of our registrars, has a couple of gadgets that can help you on the net. They are easy to use, do not beat around the bush or open needless windows and are free of advertising, so they can also be used in professional contexts without fear of a faux pas.
First we have a address shortener. We just have to grab one of those that goes on for hundreds of characters and go to i.gal. There we can choose the address we prefer and we can even track the number of times it has been visited, manage it and even delete it when we prefer it to disappear.
It happens all the time: we have files we want to share but they don’t fit in an email. Photos, video footage, sound files, work files or things for class. And as we telecommute more and more, we don’t always have the company or school network accessible from where we are. For these cases, and for sending files up to 3GB and download them up to two weeks later, the best is using velaqui.gal. Try it and you will see.
At DotGal we continue to think of tools to help you with your work. If you have any ideas, just tell us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
