This web comic – Commit Strip is mostly IT focused but I love it.
A bit like Dilbert it captures the humor of the industry perfectly.
I loved this explanation of the musical development within Wonder Woman.
After all of these years I’ve never heard of anyone actually winning a Scottish child!
WOW – obvious with hindsight!
I’m absolutely loving this site at the moment: http://themagicipod.com/
Take some of your favourite tunes and create a mash up – just drag and drop!
Personally I do not like the way that Microsoft Outlook prints out meetings especially the fact that attendees are a comma separated list.
I prefer to see all the attendees as a tabular list – with their acceptance response so that I can tick them off as they join the meeting.
The following macro will do this for you.
NOTE 1 : this macro is amending the text of the body of the meeting invite, if you save this and send an update – everyone will see this. I prefer to just run the macro, print the meeting and then close without saving.
NOTE 2 : this is a one off snapshot of the attendee status, if further responses or updates are received you will have to delete the old text then re-run the macro.
It may be a sign of old age but, I’m struggling more and more to remember how old people are. I have addressed this by having a review of my Google contact data and making sure, where I know someone’s birthday I have recorded it there.
This has the added advantage of creating a Google calendar showing me their birthdays.
I have now created a script which scans my contacts to find their birthdays, does some arithmetic to work out their age and store this in a custom field. I have set up a trigger to run this once a week.
Here is the script that I created:
As you will have read in various other places it is not productive to stay “in” Outlook and constantly respond to all the incoming e-mail.
It’s much better to go into your e-mail when it suits YOU – process your e-mail for a set period of time and then get back to some “real” work.
I had looked at various ways to implement this but it turns out that this is simple to implement using AutoHotkey (AHK).
