    Ulysses 1.5 – The text editor for creative writers

    Normally: $109.99

    ZOT Price: $59.99

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  

    Attention Writers: Spend time creating your own literary masterpieces and less time fussing with formatting and multiple documents!

    Writing is the fun part, isn’t it? Now you can focus on creating awesome content for YOUR next best seller, and let others worry about how it will look.

    Ulysses is for writers who work creatively with text and want or need to realize large amounts of text.

    Typically a creative work, such as a book, a play or screenplay is not written in a single document. A book that ends up being 200+ pages results from fractions, starting points, discarded ideas and many more — all neatly distributed along a total of about 800 pages, most likely with over 100 different documents, combined with notes, Post-Its, scribblings on the margins of numerous daily papers, beer covers, napkins and the back sides of photos.

    What this looks like on your computer is (in the worst case) several hundred documents from a bunch of different applications that were put into different folders on your hard disk. The organization of these pieces requires the writer to be extremely disciplined (or hire someone who is) — a mind job that could better be spent on writing itself.

    Why waste time organizing your documents when you could be crafting a better, more interesting, more exciting story by focusing on the text only?

    Ulysses enables the writer to fully concentrate on the story he wishes to tell, without hobbling his creativity by means of unnecessary burden and distraction. Time is money and as a writer, your time is best spent writing, not worrying about formattng documents. Anyone who has at least once in his life spent hours in a document searching for the correct way to format the page, instead of using the time to tweak a title or heading, knows what it’s about.

    Free to create the way YOU want

    Ulysses frees the writer from the need to deliver and develop his text in predefined structures. Instead, the writer is given the ability to form his own preferred structures — both within the text and in organizing things.

    Content is king – Who wants to read a boring story?

    Ulysses’ concept is loosely guided by a classic type setting system: TeX. The idea to have a text structured by content and not formatting is simple yet ingenious. Unfortunately, TeX is just another system for setting type, and due to its complexity, it is in no way suitable for creative writing.

    That is why Ulysses takes it one step further and solely concentrates on content. This may sound trivial, but the lack of any formatting and the ignorance of relevance of the later export format (from a design point of view) during writing is an essential part of creative writing.

    Beginning your next best seller is easy with projects in Ulysses

    Ulysses combines single documents or texts into so called projects. Imagine a project as a folder with your work, which contains all relevant text parts, chapters, ideas, notes, etc.

    Ulysses only sports one single window, divided into project and document part. The project part features a so called Document Browser, a Document Preview and a Filter.
    The document part offers an Editor, a Note Pad, a Control Panel and tabs to switch between the currently open documents.

    Features of Ulysses 1.5

    Coherent preview of several documents
    Pick a document in the browser and it will be previewed instantly. Pick more than one document in the browser and it will be… guess what?

    Innovative filtering and search system
    Type in a word or a sentence into the search field. Pick a search area. The browser will show the documents and corresponding notes that contain the text you wanted as well as those that don’t hold the text you wanted. Sounds weird? You’ll be amazed.

    “Tabbed” Single-Window-Interface

    Using the browser, you have access to all the documents in your project instantly. The tabs allow you to switch between open documents easily, and yeah, they’re rearrangeable. ‘course.

    Console mode

    Fullscreen done right. No menu, no windows, just you and your words. All eyes on text. This is so useful that every competing product has copied it. :)

    Customizable interface

    Black on white, yellow on purple, 11pt, 48pt, Monaco, Trixie, Copperplate – you decide. Save and export interface sets or use sets created by other users.

    Two editing levels

    Every document has a separate note pad. That way, you can keep your notes where they belong.

    Status: Labels

    Get your project organized! Group your documents with the help of labels and assign a user-customizable status to each of them.

    A hand full of counters

    Characters, words, lines, paragraphs, pages and documents, even the current selection and the amount of text you drag’n'drop: It counts for you.

    Open file format
    No hassle with proprietary files. Honestly. Standard text and rtf-files build the foundation for every Ulysses project. Mac OS X packages are the low-maintenance container.

    Data security and integrity

    Ulysses will save your work-in-progress. So even after two weeks and several restarts, you can still “revert to saved.” As if that wasn’t enough, we also include multiple backups and time-based auto-save.

    Export based on plug-ins

    You can export your projects into several different formats for further editing or later output. Plain text, RTF and LaTeX exporters are included; the integrated print-function allows for PDF creation. Third party developers get the optional plug-in SDK to develop their own new export options.

    Automatic Update

    While Ulysses is being improved, you are always up to date. The newest features are just a click away. No troublesome web-site downloads, no need to manually replace old versions – an update has never been easier.

    International Support

    Localizations include English, German, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, and Dutch.

    Mac OS X native; Universal Binary

    100% Cocoa. In all flavors. Means spell check, auto complete, services, QuickTime files (notes only), anti-aliased fonts, etc. out-of-the-box.

    Optimized for Tiger

    The sole requirement to your system is Mac OS X 10.4 (later works, too).

    Debtinator

    Normally: $15.00

    ZOT Price: $9.99

    Click to MacZOT Try Now  



    Today’s your lucky day – Not only can you chart out how to get out of debt more efficiently, but with the discounted sale price, you’ll have even more funds to put towards repayment!

    Works with your lifestyle.

    Sure, everybody knows that you should get out of debt fast. That balance you have sitting on your credit card, taking up payments, adding on fees and interest, that’s a bad thing. But…realistically? Talk, talk, talk. You’ve got bills to pay. You’ve got a life to live! And some guy you’ve never heard of wants you to make sacrifices and never go out to eat just to save a few pennies on your car payment? Why should you bother?

    Debtinator takes a different approach. Instead of demanding you make sacrifices and cut back to pay down your bills, it instead tracks everything you want to do. If you want to spend $300/month on clothing, that’s fine. We’re not going to argue. Just tell it your income, your expenses, and your debts.

    Debtinator will then take all of that information and use it to re-allocate your unused money towards paying down your debts. Most of us have some extra cash left over at the end of the month and fritter it away. “Oh, I’ve got another $20? Nice! Let’s order a pizza!” Instead, Debtinator will take that money and pay down your bills. You don’t need to cut back on eating out (but if you do, that’ll translate to even more interest savings, so that’s good, too!), you just need to cut back on wasting money. This is here to help.

    Save thousands in interest with better planning

    The savings can be huge. Let’s say you earn $52,000/year, and have a few expenses (rent, gas, food). And you have a credit card with a $5,000 balance, a 15% interest rate, and a required monthly payment of $200.

    Pay only the minimum and you’ll be paying it off for the next 2 1/2 years and send $862.07 in interest.

    Or you can punch it all into Debtinator, pay the thing off in 3 months, and only spend $92.32. You just saved $769.75! That $10 registration fee is looking better all the time, isn’t it?

    We’re not here to judge, we’re not here to complain, we’re not here to demand that you radically change your life to pay down your bills. We’re just trying to give you a tool to manage the money you do have more effectively so you can get out of debt that much quicker.

    If you have any debts at all (and who doesn’t), please give it a try. The savings can be huge.

    Rank Tracker — Instantly Find Out Where You Rank In 41 Different Search Engines!

    Dear Fellow Webmaster,

    If your job is promoting your site in Google, Yahoo! and MSN, would you like to know how well you rank for your most critical keyword searches? The ones that bring you qualified traffic? Of course you would!

    Search engines rankings can and will go through ups and downs, so tracking your site’s positions on a regular basis is of crucial importance. OK, Google, Yahoo! and MSN rankings must be checked, there’s no question about it. But the real question is,


    How Many Hours A Week Do You Spend
    Tracking Your Site’s Positions
    In Major Search Engines?

    If this is a manual process for you, it probably goes a lot like this. You open up a spreadsheet, create a new file, and insert several columns in it, such as "Keyword", "Last Week’s Google Ranking" and "This Week’s Google Ranking".

    Then you go ahead and visit Google, input your keyword, hit Return and then scroll down in the displayed results in search of your site. If your site is in Top 10 — lucky you, you don’t have to do a lot of scrolling. Otherwise you’ll have to visit the next Google results page, and the next one… until you finally find your site on page 9.

    Multiply that by the number of keywords or keyword phrases you target… then multiply by the number of search engines you’re interested in, then… Oh well, you get the idea: If you track search engines rankings by hand,


    You Are Wasting Hours Of Your Valuable Time!

    And us Webmasters and SEOs sure know time is money!

    So if checking Google rankings manually doesn’t sound like fun to you, we’ve got good news.

    Tri 2: Tri Again

    Normally: $13.33

    ZOT Price: $7.77

    Click to MacZOT Try Now 



    Can you master the “Con-TRI-ption”?

    The Con-TRI-ption —the unusual tri-geared contraption— traverses a triangular game area by feeding a single loop of chain through three large motorized gears and three small pulleys that slide along the boundary of the game area.

    The challenge is to master the gearing system to make the Con-TRI-ption go where you want, accumulating fuel and points while avoiding deadly tri-pedoes.

    Adding to the challenge in Tri 2 are new spinners that temporarily change the positions of the color-coded gears … and triple the value of the point targets.

    Play Spin Doctor

    The player controls the motorized gears, causing each to spin clockwise or counter-clockwise or else to stop spinning altogether. The twenty-seven combinations of spin and non-spin allow the Con-TRI-ption to move in twelve directions, to move at double-speed in six of those directions, or to idle in place (in three different ways).




    Each gear has its own fuel supply. Capturing a color-coded fuel target boosts this supply (or drains it!). Capturing enough point targets to achieve the next level replenishes all gears’ supplies … and accelerates game play. (Impatient —or fool-hardy— players can manually accelerate the game speed at any time.)

    Bonus Three-ture

    In keeping with its three-friendly theme (threeme?), Tri offers the option to display scores in Trinary (Base-3) Numbers.

    Notes

    Tri 2 is a universal binary, running natively on PowerPC- and Intel-based Macs under Mac OS X 10.3.9 or higher.

    Tri 2 is a free upgrade. Purchasers of Tri 1.x should contact triupgrade@daylateanddollarshort.com for update information.

    Until registered, Tri displays scores only in Trinary Numbers.
