How I use Workflowy

Workflowy is one of my favourite online apps and one I could not do without. As soon as I open my Chromebook to work I open three web apps, Gmail, Workflowy, and Paydirt. By the way, when I open those three I keep them pinned so I always have them on the top right of [...]

How I’m learning to focus

I'm discovering more and more that learning to focus is one of the more important skills I can develop. My default state tends to be one of a mind overwhelmed and jumping between thoughts constantly, and a body carrying some kind of stress pain. I find it difficult to organise myself. Despite trying several organisational [...]

Photopea – The Online Graphics and Photo Editor

I was recently looking for a better photo editor that would work on my Chromebook. Chromebooks do work offline but they were built to work online and online photo editing was always one of the ones that seemed impossible. I found Photopea recently and so far I'm very impressed. So impressed actually that I paid [...]

A post about writing drafts

I wish I'd learned earlier in life that my first draft or attempt at anything is probably going to bad. It almost certainly has to be. I tend to get mentally overwhelmed a lot. If I have something to do I feel a kind of blockage in my mind to get it perfect. My mind [...]

A Thought On How We Value Time

My partner always puts cushions on the bed to decorate it when she leaves the bedroom. So, she sees the cushions on the bed for a brief moment in the morning before she leaves the room and a brief moment at night when she comes back to the room and removes them from the bed. [...]

Chrome OS and USB-C Adaptors

The main focus of this post is on my testing of Chrome OS with USB-C Adaptors I mentioned before that because my new Asus Chromebook Flip only has USB-C ports I need to use adapters. In fairness, I like the idea of using only the USB-C ports. This Chromebook uses them for everything (there's a [...]

Cloud vs on premise computing

The advent of high-speed internet and more powerful cloud services change how we can run our businesses. I've had this conversation with IT providers and most often the answer I get is something like "Cloud...I don't know about that yet...what if your internet went down..." The "What if your internet went down" argument is a [...]

A thought on the software subscription model

I remember one time years ago, when a friend of mine needed Microsoft Office for his business. I said he should just get it and pay for it. Lots of people were pirating this at the time. I said he should just buy it and it would be legal and he'd have his own proper [...]
