PalmTipSheet mug after it was broken

My PalmTipSheet Mug

I received the mug you see at the top of this post many, many moons ago from my dear friend Mike Rohde. It’s been a permanent feature in every office that I’ve had and I’ve had quite a few over the years. Unfortunately, while moving some equipment yesterday, this little treasure was knocked off its shelf and it broke quite epically. I was very sorry to see it go because it was a fond memory from a “previous life”.

The PalmTipSheet was an e-mail newsletter created by Mike Rohde in 1999 as a way to share information about the then new, Palm Pilot PDA. His newsletter ended in March of 2003 when he handed it off to Brian Beeler, founder and director of BargainPDA.com in Issue #40.

The Multiple Personalities Of My Gmail Account

I signed up for Gmail on June 14, 2004, two months after the service launched and thus was able to secure my favorite username. It’s but one of the many, many e-mail addresses that I’ve used over the years but it’s still my go to for sites that I’m not 100% comfortable sharing personal information with. Which is to say that this isn’t a primary address that I value extremely highly, or even check every day. However, I do use it and plan to do so for many years to come, that is until something weird started happening that’s made me reconsider it’s value.

I Still Miss Notify.app

I’m a big fan of Inbox Zero and I wish I didn’t have to give e-mail so much of my attention, but since I’m in charge of support for my company it’s a priority for me. That may make me a bit of an “E-Mail Monkey“, but so be it. It’s a point of pride […]

Go Read This

I just finished reading a link from DaringFireball and so moved by it, I had to share it on my blog. I’m at a loss of words on how to introduce these two pieces, but thankfully Gruber has done all the hard work for me. Paul Ford, back in July, a lovely gut-wrenching piece for […]

I Love This Freak-er

This is a fantastic example of adding personality to a Kickstarker project. I may have no real interest in the product, but I had to contribute just because I love their marketing style. Brilliant.

Going Flashless

Taking a page from Daring Fireball and going flash free. I like the fact that I can fall back to Chrome when I need to for Flash, but I’m eager to see how much content is out there in HTML 5. I’ll keep you posted.

Inbox Zero, If Only For A Nanosecond

Over the past two years, I’ve been working on refining my workflows and making small adjustments to how I handle and process information. One of the chief areas of concern has been e-mail. I know I’m not alone in feeling overwhelmed by e-mail and one of the habits I’ve been trying to implement has been […]

Been Busy Streaming

Recently Dan and I have been doing some video streaming gigs with a buddy of ours Nic Dugger. I came across the on demand links on uStream, so I thought I’d share. Pre-Show: Carrie Underwood at the Grand Ole Opry Carrie Underwood at the Grand Ole Opry Jimmy Wayne Live Chat and Performance

The Road Less Traveled — E-mail Archives

I recently upgraded from version 1.0 of the iPhone to the iPhone 3Gs and did so using the “Restore from backup” feature. For the most part everything went fine, but for a couple of security apps that I use, the transition was all but smooth. Without getting too technical, what I learned was that these […]
