After hearing a lot about Python lately, I too decided to give this language a try. After some googling I found few great tutorials to kick start the learning. I hope you will find these links useful too.

1. Thinking in Python
2. Dive Into Python

At first look, Python seems very interesting language. Let see how it goes.

I have found this really cool utility that adds drop-down lists to regular textbox control in virtually any program installed on your computer.
Edit Buddy

Edit Buddy is a small fully configurable program that saves your time and hassle by adding drop-down lists to regular input fields in all programs throughout your system. These lists can remember history of input entered before by user and also can be pre-configured to contain certain set of data.

Regular edit field.
Picture 1: Regular edit field.

Edit Buddy shows drop-down list.
Picture 2: Edit Buddy shows drop-down list.

The sample dialog box above represents “Find” feature of regular Notepad. Edit Buddy can also attach itself to all standard “Open” and “Save” dialog boxes to store the list of most recently used folders and/or files.

All right, if you are still not sure about your intelligence type and if you have ample time to fill 20 something questioners then you must check out What Kind of Intelligence Do You Have?. Here is the result based on my response:

Your Dominant Intelligence is Spatial Intelligence
You’ve got a good sense of space and how the world around you looks. You can close your eyes and “see” images. You have innate artistic talent. An eye for color and shapes, you’re also a natural designer. Since you think in pictures, visual aids and demonstartions help you learn best. You would make a good navigator, sculptor, visual artist, inventor, architect, interior designer, or engineer.

You will love this nice little utility tool! When you copy any content from a web page or word document, Windows keeps the content formatting as well with the text and when you paste that text in application such as MS Word or VS.NET, you end up with unwanted formatting as well with your pasted text. Well this tool will simply remove those unwanted formatting and paste clean text instead from the clipboard. Isn’t it nice!
