My Ride on a Ford Trimotor

I just realized I never mentioned the video I shot two years ago of my ride in a Ford Tri-motor when it came to the Manassas, Virginia airport.

I shot it entirely through Google Glass.

The aircraft is operated by the EAA and regularly tours the country offering rides.

Lessons from 18 months of Work from home

I passed 18 months of Covid related work-from-home last week.  I wouldn't be surprised if I hit two years come March. I thought when it began I'd do a lot more blogging. What happened is after eight hours in my home office, I am happy to leave it and not return for the day. There are lessons I have learned in the past 18 months that do make my life more pleasant. My enjoyment of the Twitter account RateMySkypeRoom did make me finally hang up posters and such I'd bought at aviation museums over the years.  While the number of actual camera-on meetings I have is small, it is nice to present the illusion of order and neatness in my chaotic world.  Next up is to hang my my ancient Radio Shack Model 100 in a shadow box. And the old TV guy in me (I majored in Broadcast Journalism but was seduced into the then-new personal PC space soon after graduation), lead me to use a gifted Amazon card to buy a Ring light.  Even before it arrived, I thought that was foolish, I had few video c

Recording your own notes with Google Voice

Note :   April 2016:  Frankly I don't know if this works anymore.  It is 7 years old. I stopped using this when Google Now became useful on my phone, and I could dictate reminders using it. I found a way a while ago to use Google Voice to record a personal note, transcribe it, and email it to me. A recent Lifehacker post "Five Things We'd Like to See in Google Voice" lists that need as their #5 request, so I realized what I'd figured out is not common knowledge. In GV's Contacts, create a Group "Special Transcription" To avoid listening to my standard voice mail when I call, I recorded a short voice mail greeting for this group simply saying "Record note now" I added a contact with my own cell phone number as the only number, and made it the sole member of this group. In GV's phone settings, I edited the settings for my cell phone. In the section "Direct access to voicemail when calling your Google number from th

Your First Day with Evernote

I've written many times before about Evernote .  I love this program.  It is my brain's memory on steroids.  I have over 6000 notes in it now.  And I keep finding ever more uses for it. While originally written in 2009, this post has been frequently updated. New January 2012:  If you like what I write about Evernote, check out my 136 page e-book,  " Get Productive Fast with Evernote ".  Just $10. Sunday October 11, 2009 I wrote about Evernote in my print column, Family Tech. If you are wondering what is Evernote, and why would I want to use it, start with the column . I promised in that column this post to help new users get efficient fast with Evernote. I thought I'd write a quick plan for someone's first day with Evernote. This is really meant for after you've installed the client to your computer, so this picks up after you've gone to  Evernote's Get Started Page and created an account and downloaded and installed a client
