I love “mind mapping”.

I really don’t understand why it doesn’t become more popular.

Recently, all I seem to get is “spinning tabs”. Opera and Fivefox don’t have a problem.

I’m confused.

One App to Rule Them All: 30 Ways Evernote Can Improve Your Life

7. Grocery list. Our household goes through endless scraps of paper for meal planning and grocery lists. They end up lost more often than not. Create your weekly list in Evernote, share it with your wife or roommates, and everyone will be on the same page. You can each add items to the list as you think of them instead of risking forgetting and needing to make a return trip to the market.

*** end quote ***

Argh!

I’m trying be serious here.

I need a pick list in any of the three “super” markets I use.

And, it would nice if the app gave me a solution that is the lowest cost.

Watson? (Not Wilson!) where are u?

SOFTWARE: BLUEGRIFFON chokes on an errant copy and paste

Sunday, March 9, 2014

2014-Mar-09

In doing my weekly Jasper Jottings, I was delayed by a data formatting error.

Apparently, when I posted an article in the daily blog, using MARSEDIT, some how the article was posted as the title.

I didn’t realize it and did a copy and paste from MARSEDIT into BLUEGRIFFON.

That cause BLUEGRIFFON to make the page width six times larger than it needed to be.

Took a break.

When I came back to it, I did CNTL Z’s until BLUEGRIFFON restored the page size.

Then the hunt for what was causing the problem.

Repeated the cut’n’paste into SIMULTRON5 text editor. Couldn’t see anything. Back into BLUEGRIFFON same result.

Deleted all the blank lines and made sure that each line had an EOL on it.

Cut’n’paste back to BLUEGRIFFON; same result.

Then I cut’n’pasted the first line to BLUEGRIFFON; same result.

Then I cut’n’pasted just the text part of the first line to BLUEGRIFFON; that worked correctly.

Resumed and everything was now right with the world.

Argh!

Still don’t really understand what happened.

The issue went out about 8 hours late.

Argh!

SOFTWARE: FINDFRIENDS interesting application

Monday, May 20, 2013

Interesting use for it. 

My friend Pete’s in the hospital in Jacksonville FL.

I know where is phone is!

Laff.

I assume he still has it with him.

So, without bothering anyone, I know he’s still there.

Now if it could just tell me the altitude, I’d know if he’s still in ICU or moved to a regular room.

Laff!

Stalking to a new level.
