Organised? What's organised???
I just move whichever crisis is most urgent to position zero and let the remaining indexes sort automatically. And whenever there is nobody close to remind me that their crisis is next, I sniff the roses.
I came to the conclusion years ago that anyone who claimed to be organized was lying. It's scientifically impossible. So don't feel bad, you just got suckered in like the rest of us.
I can completely relate to this, Grant. I have been spending an average of almost 2 hours per day reading and responding to emails (more than typical). I'm actually glad most people do not work on weekends, since I can then use the lull in email traffic to catch up on other work.
I can see why you had to turn off your PM's!
Need a secretary? Heh.
Boring? Hell no. I love stuff like this. But then I've been a serious code-head most of my life, so I can appreciate it.
@bluesoul I used to be a dreamweaver fan, but over the years i tended to find myself in code view all the time anyway. Plus the price difference was a big decider!
Automator is great for lots of stuff. What I mainly use it for is converting 200x200 .tiff images for the directory in to jpegs, plus making medium and small thumbnails for them.
This must be really boring for most people, sorry!
Pretty cool, I always enjoy reading "behind the scenes" stuff like this. Still haven't been able to pull the trigger on a Mac, I could transition over fine but Windows is too damn convenient. Same reason why I never went full into Linux.
Writeroom makes me laugh, I like the concept. Coda seems pretty thorough but I'm so used to Dreamweaver...
The Graphic Converter makes sense, Automator is one of the huge boons to Mac users and I absolutely love the concept.
And yes, I keep hearing about how I can't live without Quicksilver.
Glad to have read the notice before it went off...Yes, it has been much faster of late...Anything more is welcome with garlands of your favorite florals!
Thanks for all the ab fab work you are doing Grant!
This could be my chance to keep up with my paper-pile-sorting. But "could be years" is NOT funny British humour...
All of the above X 10 to the power of Kouros!
AH! Looking forward to the increase in speed as my medievil dialup service is sometimes so slow it is like watching pine sap drip from the tree..
Yay, we can use the emergency community!
Grant - Congratulations on getting a server upgrade and thank you for all the time and energy you put into Basenotes. Thank you for the notice. And with plenty of time to plan for it, too!
Let's see: two hours at Barney's, an hour for TJMaxx, an hour for Loehmann's/Ross/Marshall's combined, an hour for tea, and three hours clicking the Basenotes link to see if it's back up!
May the force be with you.
Thanks for the heads up Grant!
As a precaution, I would like to download my updated wardrobe as I did last time. The option does not seem to be there now. Have I missed it? If not, is there a workaround?
Take care my friend.
The IT unga bunga dance always worked for me
Good luck with the upgrade. And thanks for all of your hard work.
Hope it all goes smooth. Thanks for such a great site.
Thanks for the advance warning. I've spent too much time here anyway recently and never seen much of the football excitement in our town (and country). I hope the weather will be good!
Make it days!
Love your great humor, Grant.
