Webjimbo – an introduction

Webjimbo is a web interface for Bare Bones Software’s Yojimbo. It lets you view and edit your Yojimbo data from any computer with an internet connection and a web browser.

Yojimbo wherever you are

Webjimbo runs a small web server on your Mac. This means that wherever you are, you have access to your Yojimbo notes, bookmarks and everything else as long as you’re at a computer with an internet connection.

Say you run Yojimbo at home: now that important information’s available to you at work or from an internet cafe. You can add and edit items too, so you can record information as it comes to hand. When you’re at home, you just use Yojimbo as usual.

Secure

Webjimbo is protected with a password of your choice. You also have the option of using a secure connection (https) to protect your information while it’s in transit over the internet.

Safe

All changes to Yojimbo data are made through Yojimbo’s AppleScript interface. There is no direct manipulation of the Yojimbo database or any other trickery, so your data is safe.

iPhone version to come

A version of Webjimbo optimised for iPhone will be released in the future. Stay tuned.

No longer just Mac

Stuck on a Windows machine at work? It happens to the best of us. Because Webjimbo runs in your browser, your Mac’s Yojimbo data is available to you no matter what type of computer you’re on.

Works like a real application

Webjimbo works more like a desktop application than a regular web site, thanks to AJAX goodness. If you use gmail or other online Google applications you’ve got the idea. If not, you’re in for a nice surprise.

Simple

Webjimbo is a simple, self-contained application. It makes no modifications to your Mac’s setup or to Yojimbo. Configuration is easy thanks to a setup assistant that walks you through the necessary steps.

Trouble syncing?

Syncing Yojimbo data between Macs can be a hassle. Although Webjimbo doesn’t provide everything you can do in Yojimbo, the basics are all there, so it’s a serious alternative to syncing. Of course, there’s nothing to stop you using syncing in some cases and Webjimbo in others.

Multi-user environments

A number of people have expressed interest in using Webjimbo to give multiple users (in an office, for example) access to a shared Yojimbo database. This is indeed possible; please read this section of the FAQ first, though.

Requirements

Your Mac running Yojimbo needs to be accessible from the internet. If your internet connection doesn’t have a fixed IP address, you will probably need a free service like DynDNS. More about this….

Connecting to Webjimbo requires a modern browser. Firefox 2+, Safari 2+, Internet Explorer 6+ and Camino 1.5+ are supported.

Webjimbo requires Yojimbo 1.4.

Limitations

Webjimbo makes the core functionality of Yojimbo available, but there are limits:

Note editing is plain text only. You can view formatted notes (including attachments), but if you edit them formatting and attachments will be lost.

Encrypted notes are displayed in plain text only, without formatting or attachments.

You can’t edit passwords or encrypted notes.

You can’t view encrypted archives.

A closer look at Webjimbo

Webjimbo is a computer interface that allows you to access your Yojimbo anytime and anywhere. Its main function is to share Yojimbo data. All you will need is to log in and have your Yojimbo connected. It allows you to search, view and edit all of your files and documents on any computer, no matter what web browser you are using.

Webjimbo also has an iPhone and iPad interface that has made multitasking anywhere even more easily.

The best thing about this is that it doesn’t duplicate your files and data from your Yojimbo account because you will be dealing directly with your Yojimbo account. This ensures that all changes and edits on your bookmarks and notes are up to date.

As usual, with anything concerning the internet, one significant aspect will be security. Your account will be protected by a password and all of your data will be encrypted. This will allow your account to be secure enough to be visible over the internet. It also uses a secure http:// or https:// that provides more security than the average http://.

You will be provided your own URL when you use Webjimbo. For example, johnsmith.findpresence.com. This does not mean that all of your data will be duplicated or transferred to the server. Like I mentioned earlier, no files or data will be duplicated. When you see your log-in page, your browser is coordinating directly with your computer.

Installing the software is not as complicated as other set-ups are. It has a very simple and direct way of guiding you through the process. Just make sure that you are able to read the instructions first before proceeding. If you are confused with something, Google is always there to help you out. The file is just at 22.66 MB and won’t take too long to download.

Webjimbo has a few requirements. You need to have a Mac OS x 10.6 or higher. And since you will also be connecting your main Mac to a connecting computer, the connecting computer can have any operating system (OS) but the supported browsers are Firefox 3+, Internet Explorer 6+, Safari 4+ and Google Chrome.

It is easy, convenient, fun and user-friendly! But, if you aren’t convinced yet – Webjimbo also offers a free 20-day trial. Once you enjoy all of the benefits of this amazing software, you will just want to have one for yourself. Try it and savor the experience.

The benefits of Moroccanoil

Many people have actually heard a lot about Moroccan oil and what some may not know is that this is a different name for argan oil. Moroccan oil is edible and at the same time it’s also used as a moisturizer for the hair and also for the skin. This oil is made from kernels of the argan tree fruit which can be found growing in Morocco almost exclusively. Compared to other oils, Moroccanoil is not only amongst the rarest in the world, but at the same time it also commands a high price.

What does it consist of?

Chemically speaking, it consists of a blend of fatty acids, containing over seventy percent of linoleic and oleic acids and also being rich in carotenes, phenols and vitamin E. From a historical point of view, Moroccan oil has been used in cooking, but because it contains so many fatty acids, it’s been used extensively in the beauty industry.

Uses

As previously mentioned, Moroccan oil is used not only for flavoring salads, but also for cooking. After the oil will be extracted from the argan nuts, a sort of paste will be left behind, which seems to be very popular in Morocco, serving as a breakfast dip. However, those who want to get pure argan oil, should know that it can get pretty expensive and on top of that, it’s also quite rare. That is why people who will find street vendors claiming to sell pure argan oil in Morocco should treat them with suspicion.

What are the benefits of Moroccanoil?

Moroccanoil contains a lot of fatty acids which are great for those who want to keep their skin healthy and properly moisturized. Using this oil for the hair, it will repair its texture and offer it that lost shine it once had. Recent research also stipulated that argan oil is so powerful and effective, that it has also had positive results for people who suffer from psoriasis. Even though the research is still in the early stages, some individuals have reported real benefits when using it.

With that being said, it seems that Moroccanoil is one of the best ways that people can consider for treating damaged skin and dry hair, but because of its cost, it can be a bit prohibitive. When buying it, individuals should make sure they research the store where they want to get it from, to ensure that it sells an authentic product and not a watered down version.

Car insurance for dummies

Ever since car insurance has become a staple in every one’s budget, most of us have made it a valid point to research and to become acquainted with everything and anything that has to do with the cheapest car insurance. We have convinced ourselves that being well-informed will help us in maintaining a low car insurance rate. This is true. But just how much do we really know?

Let’s start with the common types of car insurances.

1. Comprehensive Auto Coverage. This is the type of car insurance that covers the damages made to your vehicle. The damages may include fires, floods, theft and road kill.

2. Personal Injury Coverage. This is the type of insurance that covers a major percentage of your medical and rehabilitation bills, lost wages and in case, a funeral. This type of insurance is also known as a ‘no fault – insurance’. The insurance will still suffice regardless of whose fault it was.

3. Bodily Injury Coverage. This type of insurance is what covers any damages you may have caused to the other party. This will only apply to accidents that were your mistake.

4. Collision Coverage. This is what will cover any damages that have been caused to your vehicle in a road accident.

5. Uninsured Motorist Coverage. This is the insurance that will cover any damages that have been caused in an accident with an uninsured motorist. It will protect you from irresponsible drivers who have no car insurance coverage.

A Full Coverage is what most people seem to choose nowadays. It is a combination of the Comprehensive Coverage and the Collision Coverage. Both of these coverage’s are deductibles and are paid out of the premium. Some drivers, however, choose to have a lower premium. Hence, they will pay the deductibles apart from the premium.

As with most motorists, car insurance payments can be a little bit heavy on the pocket. Therefore, people have learned to smarten up and choose coverage’s wisely. Aside from knowing exactly what will benefit you in the long run, here are a few quick tips you might need to know.

1. The type of car you drive affects your car insurance rates.
2. Brand new cars can usually be insured for less.
3. Coverage could often be a waste of money.
4. Different Car Insurance companies have different car insurance rates.
5. In order to lower your rates, increase your deductibles.
6. Late payments could greatly affect your policy.

Hopefully, these tips and tidbits of information will help you in regards with your car insurance. Always keep your eyes on the road and Drive safely!

What do I need to run Webjimbo?

Webjimbo runs a small web server that you connect to with a web browser. For this to work your Mac obviously needs to be visible on the internet. This means:

* Your Mac needs to be on the internet.
* You need to leave your Mac switched on, logged in and running Webjimbo. You also need to make sure it doesn’t go to sleep – see Energy Saver in the system preferences.
* You might need to configure your Mac’s firewall. The setup assistant in Webjimbo tells you how to do this.
* Your Mac needs to have an internet address. If you have a fixed IP address you can use that, otherwise you will probably need a dynamic DNS service like DynDNS or No-IP. If you don’t understand all this click here for more help.
* Depending on your network setup, you might need to configure your Airport base station or other router to allow connections from the outside world on the port you choose for Webjimbo. More about this…

Webjimbo installation and setup

* Installation: Webjimbo is a simple Mac application and you just need to drag it from the disk image to your applications folder.
* Setup: The easiest way to set up Webjimbo is to use the Setup Assistant. This runs automatically when you first launch the application, or you can run it anytime from the Help menu. For a more direct approach, click the Configure button or choose Preferences from the menu.

Yojimbo permissions for viewing passwords and encrypted notes

If you want to view passwords and encrypted notes in Webjimbo, you need to change Yojimbo’s security settings.

1. Open Yojimbo’s preferences, and click on the Security icon
2. Click the lock (bottom left) and enter your password to make changes
3. Check the last two boxes, labelled “Accessing password items from scripts” and “Accessing encrypted items from scripts”

You should be aware that by doing this you’re allowing any AppleScript running on your Mac to have access to your passwords and encrypted items.

Accessing Webjimbo from the internet

You will need to configure your Airport Base Station or router if you have one. Click here for instructions. To find out about your Mac’s address on the internet, click here.
* To use Webjimbo from the outside world, browse to https://(your address):(port), for example https://mymac.example.com:8888. If you have a fixed IP address, it will look more like https://10.11.12.13:8888.
* Don’t forget, if you’re not using a secure connection the URL starts with “http” not “https”.

Logging in

Use your Mac user name. This is the same as the name of your home folder. The password is the one you chose during setup, or specified in the preferences.
Changing when items are fetched
By default, when you select a collection Webjimbo fetches the collection’s items. This is good because it’s consistent with Yojimbo, but because fetching isn’t as quick it can be annoying when you just want to do a quick search.
You can change this by clicking the preferences icon (next to Help) in the web interface. You have three options; the second one tries to strike a balance between performance and ease of use.

Keyboard shortcuts

You can use the keyboard to perform a number of common operations. Keyboard shortcuts consist of some combination of the shift, control and alt keys, plus a letter. The default on the Mac is control, and on other operating systems it’s alt, but you can configure this to your liking in the preferences.

The shortcut keys are:
* K Moves the cursor to the search box.
* L Selects the Library and moves the cursor to the search box.
* S Saves the item you’re editing.
* N Creates a new note.
* B Creates a new bookmark.
* R Creates a new serial number.
* W Creates a new web archive.
* P Creates a new PDF archive.
* \ Moves the selected item to the trash or removes it from the collection.

Limitations

Webjimbo provides Yojimbo’s main operations, but doesn’t do everything. The main limitations are:

* Note editing is plain text only. You can view formatted notes (including attachments), but if you edit them formatting and attachments will be lost.
* Encrypted notes are displayed in plain text only, without formatting or attachments.
* You can’t edit passwords or encrypted notes.
* You can’t view encrypted archives.
* You can only select (and therefore search) one collection at a time. Similarly, you can only work with one item at a time.
* You can’t choose which columns to display.
* You can’t choose which collections to display

What is professional indemnity insurance?

Professional indemnity insurance or PI insurance as it is more commonly known is pretty much what the name suggests. PI insurance provides for cover in case claims are made for damages or losses incurred by the policy holder due to their own professional negligence. This type of insurance cover is usually taken by accountants, lawyers, brokers, and any other kind of professionals who offer consulting services or work in an advisory role.

Most often, professional indemnity insurance covers losses or circumstances incurred due to negligence act, negligent error or negligent omission committed by the policy holder in carrying out their business. However, some policies go further than the above norm and also cover losses incurred due to civil liabilities such as breach of contract.

Professional indemnity insurance is very beneficial to professionals such as doctors and lawyers since it gives them an insurance coverage during cases of lawsuits or claims that are filed against them because of professional negligence. Certain professions are even required to get this type of insurance for their own protection and advantage. Although paying a monthly or quarterly premium for professional indemnity insurance is quite expensive, it outweighs the cost since it gives you the peace of mind during cases of lawsuits. Especially for those with high-risk careers such as doctors, having this kind of insurance is truly beneficial since they may encounter a number of lawsuits throughout their careers.

Some insurance companies would only offer coverage for negligence, but there are others who cover for other areas such as libel, slander or breach of contract (see this page for more information). Other insurance companies provide coverage for other civil liabilities so it would be best to do a thorough research of the policies offered by a particular company to check the extent of the cover.

Professionals in the business of offering advice to individuals and corporations need to indemnify themselves from suits arising from their practices. An indemnity cover will protect the professional from suits arising from damages or losses incurred by their clients as a result of their advice or services offered.

In seeking to buy an insurance cover the professional will need to consider a number of issues such as whether he wants a standalone professional indemnity cover or he wants it as an all inclusive business cover. A professional seeking to have a professional indemnity insurance cover will more often require an insurance firm to send him a professional indemnity insurance quote.

The professional indemnity insurance quote will include the policy details and details about the premiums payable. This will enable the professional to assess the suitability of the cover. It is advisable to seek for quotations from a number of insurers. Quotations obtained by the professional from varies insurance firms will guide him in making the final decision. A decision based on facts after some consideration rather than an intuition based decision.
