Email Best Practices for Teams

A client asked me for our best practices around email communications, to share with their globally dispersed teams. They had learned the keys to getting to inbox zero, but their productivity was stymied by the sheer volume of unproductive emails being sent around the company. These tips were born out of the shared practices we use here at […]

Someone Calculated How Much Money We’ve Fictionally Wasted Saving Matt Damon

I think it’s time to let Matt Damon die, y’all.

According to Quora user Kynan Eng‘s calculations, if all of Matt Damon’s characters were real, we would have already spent nearly a trillion dollars trying to save him:


Courage Under Fire (Gulf War 1 helicopter rescue): $300k
Saving Private Ryan (WW2 Europe search party): $100k
Titan AE (Earth evacuation spaceship): $200B
Syriana (Middle East private security return flight): $50k
Green Zone (US Army transport from Middle East): $50k
Elysium (Space station security deployment and damages): $100m
Interstellar (Interstellar spaceship): $500B
The Martian (Mars mission): $200B
TOTAL: $900B plus change

What is it about Matt Damon’s face that makes people want to keep him safe? Apparently his movies have only grossed $2.7B, so he’s not even close to pulling his own fake weight.

All I Wanted For Christmas Was The Internet

That’s seven days now with no internet connection. Phone is working fine but no broadband. :(

I waited in for two days last week for an OpenReach engineer to visit but no one turned up – apparently it was not necessary. Now they tell me it IS necessary but it will be next Wednesday (a full week after their original appointment) before they can come.

On the plus side – my mobile is also with Talk Talk and I can get the internet on that – but ….. I have just used my monthly allowance in the last seven days. Strangely Talk Talk “are not able to” offer me unlimited data or waive any addition data fees that I incur whilst I have no fixed line connection.

On the plus side Talk Talk have promised me compensation for every day without service. I’m wondering what price they will put on:

  • My children’s Christmas gifts not working.
  • No music.
  • No films.

I know that this is very much a first world problem – but you don’t realise how dependant you are on the internet until you don’t have it.

Search “Bubble Level” On Google On Your Phone to Get a Working Level

Search "Bubble Level" On Google On Your Phone to Get a Working Level

Google has recently added yet another occasionally handy tool to its search box, if you’re searching from a phone. Just type in “bubble level” and you can get a box that uses your phone’s accelerometer to determine if something’s level or not.

While it’s obviously possible that a digital representation of a bubble level could be incorrectly calibrated and thus slightly off, this tool still does the job in a pinch. In my tests it was accurate to at least within one degree. If you need reliability in your everyday work, you’re probably already carrying a real bubble level with you, but for those one-off times when you can’t find your level, your phone can do in a pinch.

No Internet

Up to 48 hours before an engineer can visit.
May have to resort to having a conversation (he posted on the internet) !
