Roll My Own Ringtone

First of all, I real­ly don’t go in for .mp3 ring tones. I’m actu­al­ly okay with just hav­ing a beepy or ringy ring­tone on my phone. How­ev­er, cus­tom ring­tones do serve a use­ful pur­pose. Now that essen­tial­ly every­one1 car­ries a cell phone with them, know­ing that it is actu­al­ly your phone ring­ing is handy. Of… Con­tin­ue read­ing Roll My Own Ringtone

On Getting Things Done

I was prob­a­bly the sin­gle last per­son to get a copy of David Allen’s Get­ting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Pro­duc­tiv­i­ty. I had ordered a copy sim­ply because it did seem so pop­u­lar. I usu­al­ly steer clear of the self-help and busi­ness pro­duc­tiv­i­ty sec­tions of the book­store. How­ev­er, the peo­ple who were talk­ing about… Con­tin­ue read­ing On Get­ting Things Done

Google Search Anomoly

Now here’s some­thing real­ly weird. I read about the fit­ness track­ing site WeEn­dure a cou­ple of weeks ago on Life­hack­er and signed up for an account. I’ve been using it reg­u­lar­ly. I just hap­pened to do a google search for ween­dure to see if there were any oth­er arti­cles on the site (I am in… Con­tin­ue read­ing Google Search Anomoly

A Scanner Brightly

I had writ­ten some time ago about get­ting a new scan­ner to replace my aging rel­ic. How­ev­er, the old one was work­ing well enough, I just nev­er had the heart to replace the thing. I mean, why spend mon­ey on a new scan­ner when the one I have does just fine? Well, last month, when hav­ing… Con­tin­ue read­ing A Scan­ner Brightly

Outlook Hack

So many things in Win­dows (and on a Mac/Linux machine for that mat­ter) require you to con­firm dele­tion, that it’s become a reflex to hit [Delete] & [Enter] in rapid suc­ces­sion. Sad­ly, the oth­er day I delet­ed the very hand “Unread Mail” from Out­look. It’s a very handy way to imme­di­ate­ly keep on top of… Con­tin­ue read­ing Out­look Hack

Dude, Where’s My Car?

When I fly where ever, I find it’s eas­i­est just to leave my car parked at the long term garage (as opposed to a taxi or a friend). Before I go on my trip, I emp­ty my cam­er­a’s mem­o­ry card. The first pho­tos I take on my trip are my park­ing spot num­ber and the… Con­tin­ue read­ing Dude, Where’s My Car?
