As I use Dropbox more and more, I’m beginning to see that it really has a lot of value, and not just of the normal “file backup” variety. (see some of my other blog posts on Dropbox for some of my other ideas). I’ve been using NeatWorks NeatDesk for awhile, and began relying on it [...] Related posts:

SOLVED: Moving your Outlook Address Book to another location

I’m definitely not a Windows user, nor a fan of Microsoft products, but I do have to use them for work and my personal calendaring with Cozi and my BlackBerry device, so I’m learning how to tweak and modify the core components to suit how I use them. In this case, I have a direct [...] Related posts:

HOWTO: Browsing securely, using i2p with Firefox and FoxyProxy

I’ve been using i2p for a few things, including browsing and keeping my online research for new business ventures out of the prying eyes of my local Internet providers. Typically this means using a web browser of some sort to access content on the i2p networks (information that certain restrictive governments would prefer not be [...] Related posts:

How American Express’ shady practices are making the economy WORSE

I have been an American Express customer for many years. I have an AMEX card that gives me points, miles and is honored by Delta Airlines for free flights for Seryn when she flies with me. My payment history on this card is what American Express themselves calls “stellar” in their own records. Every 3 [...] Related posts:

Removing and Editing Windows “network” Passwords

My work machine constantly locks me out of my two corporate accounts there, depending on which resource or website I’m accessing while connected via the VPN. When I access the parent company’s web infrastructure, my ML corporate ID is locked out. When I access some of the ML sites and resources, my BAC corporate ID [...] Related posts:

Another Good Idea Implemented Poorly (this time, from Case-Mate)

I’ve been looking around for a GOOD case for my BlackBerry Bold 9000 and 9700, and ran across a few that were pretty durable. I like the cases at Seidio and they’ve never done me wrong for my Palm OS devices, batteries and accessories. Then I found… the Fuel and the (new) Fuel Lite, from [...] Related posts:

I’ve been using TweetDeck for quite some time on Linux, after I managed to get getting Twhirl working on Linux under 64-bit Adobe Air. TweetDeck is a lovely app, graceful and very useful. It has its minor visual and UI bugs, but it’s the best I’ve seen out of the other hundreds of Twitter apps [...] Related posts:
