Evernote / Workflowy

Am trying to keep track of things using Evernote now. I’ve used Workflowly a lot, but the big downside with it is it has limited Android support. A browser version isn’t good enough, I want it in an application I can use. So I’ll keep using Workflowly at work, but for everything else it’s Evernote’s turn.

Windows 8 Phone

I’ve spent two days trying to run a emulator for a Windows 8 phone. All I want it for is to test a web page on it (I can’t find any online services that support it like Browserstack). Eventually I tried to install their official SDK, but even that fails (makes it a third of […]

DVD Intros

The most painful experience with DVDs are the ads that appear before you reach the menu. Some even prevent you from skipping over them (although there are ways around this).

Blinking Lights

My desktop computer has a big plaster stuck to the front. It doesn’t look the greatest, but it serves a purpose. Namely to stop the blinking lights driving me mad at night. Hardware builders have a thing for blinking lights. That’s great, but my desktop is in my bedroom (shared house) and so it’s either […]
