Doh! Two Word docs and someone didn’t track changes, what now?

ClearContext updates their Vista widget and it is now a powerful GTD tool

You know I love ClearContext for Outlook.  The colour coding, the prioritization, the ability to just file messages with a click, and filing sent messages with a topic, all these things let me really manage my e-mail.  A while ago Brad told me about the Vista gadget for CC and Outlook 2007.  I’ve been trying […]

I peer, you peer, Wipeer-snazzy looking P2P app

Sometimes you just need a little ad-hoc network to get something done at a meeting.  Maybe you’re at a coffee shop with buds and want to push a file back and forth.  Maybe you just need to share something fast.  Vista has this capability built-in, and I got a chance to play with it a […]

Getting back into the swing of things
