ProjectPier: A good small project management tool

Wednesday, April 09, 2008

I was facing problems in Project management since long time. During the period we tested some applications and found Basecamp better. We successfully used it in development process of a project but it has it's own limitations as it is not a open-source (means no free) product. Being a trial user I was not able to add more than one client and project with some more can-not-do's. So I was looking for a open-source alternative for Basecamp and recently found ProjectPier a good alternative for Basecamp and ActiveCollab.
ProjectPier is a Free, Open-Source, self-hosted PHP application for managing tasks, projects and teams through an intuitive web interface. ProjectPier will help your organization communicate, collaborate and get things done Its function is similar to commercial groupware/project management products, but allows the freedom and scalability of self-hosting. Even better, it will always be free."
What I liked most that ProjectPier team insures users that the product will remain free in future unlike ActiveCollab which was a opensource project in development phase.

Improve English vocabulary and donate free rice

Friday, April 04, 2008

FreeRice has two goals:

  1. Provide English vocabulary to everyone for free.
  2. Help end world hunger by providing rice to hungry people for free.

This is made possible by the sponsors who advertise on this site.

Whether you are CEO of a large corporation or a street child in a poor country, improving your vocabulary can improve your life. It is a great investment in yourself.

Perhaps even greater is the investment your donated rice makes in hungry human beings, enabling them to function and be productive. Somewhere in the world, a person is eating rice that you helped provide. Thank you.

And you know who referred this website?
Mr. Aamir Khan on his blog.
