Dark Room is a full screen, distraction free, writing environment
Now THIS is what I needed. I was literally in the middle of writing this tool when I remembered to Google for one someone wrote first!
Dark Room (Feed) is a Windows Clone of WriteRoom, one of my favorite Mac applications. The fact that its default state is green text on black isn't the point; you can change the colors. It's the lack of distraction.
I often type Alt-V|U in Word to go Full Screen - get those damn toolbars out of my face. Dark Room, written in .NET 2.0 baby, will be a nice place to hide occasionally and help me get work done.
Head over to pick up a copy of Dark Room now and give it a try. If you're like me, you just can't get that <whatever> document done. Maybe you leave your office and hide out in a conference room. This is kind of the same thing, but virtually. And shut down Outlook while you're at it.
Whatever it takes to be productive, I say. Now I wonder if he'll let me write a blogging plugin for Dark Room...
