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

Mindmaps and diagrams

As some will know, I’m very fond of creating mindmaps and flowcharts. I think they provide a very flexible way of looking at how things flow and interact. Sometimes I’m not sure of how exactly my ideas would come together. So, I’d put them into a mindmap and move thingsRead More

Is learning to type a good investment?

As usual I’ll start with what investment means. Loads of people will have jumped to thinking of £ or $ signs instantly, I just know it. Investment in the context of this post means putting in some effort, time or work and getting some advantage out of it. The advantageRead More

What’s the problem with keyboard shortcuts

Over the years I’ve seen how people use word-processors. In fact the term has almost gone completely out of vogue. Most people in work environments use Microsoft Word. In the pandemic period documents would regularly have been shared in a group on a big screen and somebody would be typing.Read More

A bit of surgery

Well no, it wasn’t surgery on me. It was on my phone. About a year ago my Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra ZU680KL was giving up the ghost. So, I bought a Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro. The problem with the Zenfone was that it was losing power rapidly after charging.Read More

A simple thing

Well, as usual people don’t know what they don’t know and won’t take the time to explore – so they need to be told.  On this occasion I’m sharing this simple timer thing that lives on Windows 10. Obviously, I can’t say nor do I have time to check ifRead More

I mean all forms of electronic communication and interaction e.g. emails, text (sms) messages, online banking, video conferencing etcRead More

Contacts lists

A conversation yesterday 26th June 2021, got me thinking about this. By coincidence, I was in the process of weeding out junk-contacts from my contacts list. Someone – Person X –  asked me for contact details for an accountant which I had passed to them a few months ago. Why?Read More

Future loss to present cost ratio

Okay – so I have nothing better to do on a Sunday morning than think about this. And yes – I do ‘have a life’! Some advert came in from Argos on new TVs. I don’t even need a new TV. I click on the advert and came across aRead More

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
