Turning 10 seconds into 5 minutes

For a long time, I’ve been observing how little people read things. Ahhhhh… but what does ‘read‘ or ‘reading‘ mean? The best definition I’ve found is, “the cognitive process of understanding a written linguistic message.” In this post I’m referring to things that people ought to have read i.e. variousRead More

The COVID push

To be clear at the outset, I do not like the COVID-19 virus. It has caused a large number of deaths, chronic disabilities and economic chaos.  Technology & work Right – once that’s out of the way, what I will say is that COVID has pushed all sorts ofRead More

Time wasting junk

Over the last 2 weeks I’ve been on an e-cleaning binge! That means I’ve been sorting out loads of electronic files of all types and cleaning up electronic messages. Did I say ‘electronic messages‘? Just checking. Yes – I did! Some fool wants to know what does ‘electronic messages’ mean.Read More

No time to save time

For this post the use of IT (information technology) includes software and hardware. Key areas of resistance: Human nature factors: fear, laziness, resistance to change. Organisational: lack of resources to provide, lack of awareness, inability to train, too busy – and all human nature factors. I can ‘unpack’ some ofRead More

Date changer software for photos

I’ve found it!! There are some nifty little applications to change the dates of file images and exif data – in batches. Why is this important? Well  – because I use Robobasket to sort my photos into folders, I need Robobasket to pick up ‘Date Modified’ and Exif data fromRead More

Duplicate files and managing them.

Well, for most people I know they don’t care much about this. People often don’t know and therefore don’t care about duplicate files on their computers. I’m not here to cure them – they can remain blissfully ignorant. Those who want to know can read on. Duplicate files happen –Read More
