• Managing Mailbox

    It appears like majority of the people I meet are a fan of “archiving”. Creating an archive of photos, music, movies, TV shows - everything. We love to keep things that would become a memory some day. Who doesn’t have a notebook from 10 years ago hidden somewhere on the...

  • Avoiding Chaos

    I don’t know about you, but I have a dozen different responsibilities in my personal and work life combined. Multiple projects in the office, constant KTLO time spent on administrative jobs at home.

  • Smartphone But No Internet

    2 weeks ago when I was on a short vacation, I consumed almost all of my data allowance in 5 days. Now I’m left with no internet, but the temptation to purchase an additional package for a couple of pounds only. Yet I’ve been resisting this urge for more than...

    I am receiving around 25 emails in my personal inbox and 30 spam emails every single day, and probably more than a hundred in my work email - half of them I only read the subject. It’s pretty easy to get lost in vast amounts of spam messages each day,...

  • Unsupported Resolutions - Mac OS

    Searching Google for setting unsupported resolution on mac returned an application called SwitchResX, which is the kind of solution I have been looking for a while. I use 2 2560x1440 monitors at work but the problem arises when I’m working from home - Macbook Air supports the resolution of 1440x900....
