Neat trick with Camtasia and Snagit

Some people – there are always ‘some people’ – will not know about Camtasia and Snagit. The Semmelweis reflex takes care of that lot. The way it works is that if you hear about something that sounds technical or comes from somebody you think is a nerd, you move onRead More

Tech tip – organising life a bit

‘Everybody’ believes they are organised. Well, not everybody obviously. There are some people who go, “I’m so disorganised..” – and they wear that badge proudly, expecting everybody else to work with or around them. I can tell you now, they’ll have a hard time being around me. The tip belowRead More

MS Word – Tip on headers

Loads of people don’t know much about how to use a ‘word processor’. Hmmm.. the words ‘word processor‘ now seem so strange. Formatting documents is a most important activity. Why? A well presented letter or report starts off at an advantage of being well received and easier to read. TheRead More

Saving energy if you want to

If your name is Rip van Winkle, you would not know that there is an energy crisis on over the last couple months. That was brewing for over a year but the war in Ukraine made it more prominent. It would have happened anyway but that’s a different story. I’veRead More

Calculators

Sometimes you (meaning me) needs a calculator fast. One might think of calculators as for doing sums – and that’s fine (as they say). However, calculators can do far much more. Obviously, this is not going to be lecture involving lists of reasons why ‘one’ may need a calculator. IfRead More

A problem fixed

So – for the last 2 years I have realised that many images in posts were not showing. Those were mainly before 2015. That as annoying but not in need of an urgent fix. I tried loads of thing that didn’t work. But – I kept on researching the problemRead More

OneDrive

All technology is ‘confusing’ to most people. Read that again – carefully this time. Anything that is new, is on ‘computers’ and requires thinking through more than two steps – is confusing. Look, I’m not debating it – the latter is what I have seen repeatedly. Right – let meRead More

DREYFUS

I’m going Draw.io mad! LOL. This software is soooo gooood – and free – and nice! 😁 See my previous post on this. I decided to draw this diagram below with Draw.io  – which has an embed function from the desktop version. It generated the following in code that IRead More
