Most of us have some general rules we live by, and I’ve often thought it would be a lot easier to get along with people if we had them printed and shared with everyone we met! I think we could do worse than to just live by the Golden Rule, but in real life it’s […]Read more "Rules to Live By – The Intro"
Found Ninite while browsing a list of efficiency tools on PCWorld.com. It’s a one stop super installer, you run through the menu of available applications (subset shown below) and it builds a single MSI you can download and it is supposed to automatically disable any toolbars or similar that are ‘optional’ items during the install.

I’ve been waiting on this for a while, and missed the announcement that it was available, happened to see that Paul Waters had tried it via the weekly digest I get from LinkedIn. It runs on Tour, Curve, and Bold (my current phone). Installed easily enough, and the UI looks a like like a browser. […]Read more "LinkedIn for Blackberry"
Decided to scrap the pizza this month after one too many late deliveries from Pizza Hut, went with sandwich platters from Publix. Ordered 2 platters, got a couple bags of chips, and some packages of Oreo’s for about the same cost as 10 pizzas. We started a bit late with much lower than average attendance, […]Read more "Notes from the April 13, 2010 oPASS Meeting"
