Social Fixer

Fix your social media. I know my post for the past couple of weeks have been pretty random, but, hey, it’s the end of the year and I’ve been cleaning out old links. I’ve noticed since I’ve been mostly off of Facebook this year, I’ve been more relaxed.  My stress about the election, I think, […]

Getting Ready for NaNoWriMo

I thought I’d try something new this year; early preparation. To be clear, though, I’m not going to attempt NaNoWrimo this year, because I’m way too busy right now. However, in previous years, I would often post things to help people who were doing NaNoWriMo during the month of November, when the event occurs and […]

Windows 10 Tips

My wife and I officially upgraded our laptops this month, which means we’re now running Windows 10. Personally, I like Windows 10. I think it’s got all the best features of Windows 7 with a minimal amount of new junk that Microsoft threw in to justify a new version, and charge for it.  Now, my […]

Things To Read

I’m a little suspicious of lists put out by booksellers of books I ought to read. I’m especially suspicious when it’s a list of 100 “books to read in a lifetime” being suggested by Amazon.  But, when Matt Mullenweg, founder of Automattic and one of two founding developers of WordPress, I have to admit, I […]

Secret Phone Menu

No, I’m not talking about ordering take-out. Have you ever wanted to get to the hidden parts of your phone?  You know, those secret commands that technicians use to get your phone to give up its deepest, darkest secrets?  Well, if you’re an iPhone user, you’re in luck!  Yahoo recently shared all those with the […]

Random Fiction Helpers

Last year, I shared these tools to help people participating in NaNoWriMo and, since it’s that time of year again, I’m going to share them again. Maybe one year, I’ll be able to get myself together again and give this a try.  Maybe this coming year, I’ll have all my regular posts queued up and […]

Free eMagazines

I don’t have much for you this week. Seriously, it’s been a long, tiring week and I’m kind of burned out, but I have to work part of the weekend, too, so I’m afraid this week isn’t great.   Basically, I’ve just got one thing, but at least it’s free. If you like to read, especially […]

Freebies for Friday

Traditionally, I’ve tried to give you free stuff on Friday. This week is no different. But, I’ll be honest, it’s been a crazy week with budget planning and strategic planning for the next five years at work, so I haven’t really prepared anything special.  And, that means I’ll be digging into my collection of strange […]

A “New” Way to Prevent Photo Theft

No, those quotation marks aren’t ironic. Last year, in August, I wrote about a free service called LensTag that would help you track your camera gear if any of it went missing.  Well, they’re back in the news for another service!  This one was discovered by accident by their president’s wife who mistakenly turned on […]

Create Ebooks from Webpages

Okay, this isn’t exactly a new idea, but it’s still worth sharing. I got this from Lifehacker back in 2012, but I’ve been behind in my link sharing, so I’m just getting to it now. The idea is simple.  Reading on-line is rarely the best, most comfortable, most convenient way to keep up with all […]
