Medical Technology - For the Patient

These last few months, I’ve spent a fair amount of time in medical facilities, mostly working preventive things (nothing scary here; not to worry). There’s been a big change in practice where I go and see my doctor: a whole lot of technology has been added to the workplace.
Instead of paper records, my medical history […]

Let this be a reminder, check ALL the cables when something isn’t working

Got this from Chris Pirillo today:

Oh I have so been there.  I’ve done it myself, I’ve seen tons of other people do it.  Sometimes the cable looks like it’s in, but just isn’t seated all the way.  So, take it from Chris and I, check all the cables.  Then check them again.

Stuck creating a document? Try using a template

So you need to create a new document.  It doesn’t matter if you’re using Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint (or even OpenOffice), looking at a blank screen is almost as daunting as getting the document done.
Now, when you make this a complex task, like a form letter or invoice, you can waste a lot of […]

How to get to your programs faster in Windows

How long does it take you to get to the programs you use everyday?  Should really be two clicks at most, and there are two easy ways to do this built into Windows without needing to install any extra software.
Sure there are programs like Launchy, but I’m on a path to keep my new Vista […]

Pimp your proposals with Ben’s advice

Our very own Ben Yoskovitz started a sensation yesterday with his post Top 10 Reasons Proposals Fail on his Instigator blog.  It made the front page of Digg (causing his servers to crash not once, but twice) and has now been featured on LifeHacker.
If you’re in a business where your proposals make or break your bottom […]

Weekly versus Daily Tasks

There is the debate, in my mind, between scheduling the “big rocks” for the week into my calendar compared to having “next actions” about the big rocks scheduled into my calendar.
For those who follow time management disciplines, the Steven Covey approach to time management compared to David Allen’s Getting Things Done approach.
Personally, I loved the […]

Tapping into Google Calendar through Outlook 2007

Do you use Google Calendar?  Yeah me neither.  I’ve tried but it seems whenever I try to get Google Calendar synched with Outlook and my BlackBerry, my BlackBerry gets really, really cranky.  It crashes the syncing software in fact.  The thing is I have a couple groups now who have Gmail hosted e-mail and that […]

Desktop search in Vista-files meet tags

While I’m still waiting for my copy of Vista to arrive (looks like Friday-ish), I’ve been reading up on it to see how it’s going to help me do “stuff” better.  Besides gathering up tons of install tips (no I’m not doing a clean install), I’ve been looking at the built-in improvements to search.  LifeHacker […]

About a week with Office 2007, so far so good

It’s been about a week now since I switched over to Office 2007 Pro.  I still haven’t played with Power Point (I’m not a big ppt guy any more), Word has been getting a workout for sure.  Excel?  On the other machine here at home that’s had Office 2007 for a month I’ve played a […]

ReaderMini-Google reader for your PDA

I’m loving Google Reader lately.  Yeah I know that I’ve been a client-side rss reader kind of guy for a long time, but you gotta try new stuff once and a while.  So there is a "mobile" version of GR that Google provides.  It’s through your mobile browser and not an app.  I’ve tried it […]
