Hackpad is shutting down. (How to) Download your files asap or migrate to Dropbox.

rxkjjlwHackpad is shutting down and the scheduled deadline is July 19, 2017.

For this reason, do not forget to download and save locally (in HTML, Markdown, Plaintext, or SQL) all the files you created during last years or to accept their offer to migrate to the new dropbox paper.


The migration procedure is simple. You have to create a Dropbox account (if you have not one yet and you have not enough time you can create a Dropbox account using your Google credentials) and go to paper.dropbox.com/hackpad.

Now you have to login to your Dropbox account, select the import feature and you will redirect to Hipad window where you will be asked to login.

At this point you visualize all your Hackpad collections and you can migrate them to itron2kDropbox Paper. Unfortunately you cannot select all your collection at the same time but you have to select them one by one. But, if you have a good Internet connection and not many files, the migration needs just few minutes.


How to publish and share nice pdf documents, newsletters or magazines using Scribd.com and Issuu.com

Issuu logoScribd LogoMore than one year ago we wrote a short post about creating pdf files using Openoffice (also in its portable version), now, in our Freeware Page, we would like to talk about two interesting Web 2.0 websites which allow you to publish and share your documents. On one hand, Scribd.com is an interesting website you can use to upload and share files in the following formats: Microsoft Word (doc, docx), Microsoft Powerpoint (ppt, pptx, pps), Microsoft Excel (xls, xlsx), PDF (pdf, ps), Open Office Documents (odt, odp, sxw, sxi, etc.), Images (jpg, png, gif, tiff) and Text Documents (txt, rtf). On the other hand, Issuu.com is very intuitive to use but very effective. Using Issuu you can upload a pdf files transforming it into a “cool magazine format”. In few words, you can modify, with just a click, your pdf file in a browsable magazine, with active links and notes. Moreover you can also insert your “brand new” magazine as a htlm widget directly in your blog or website. Recommended! AddThis mp3 link
