We are looking for someone to adopt Darcy. He is such an awesome companion and darling friend for our kids. We have to give him up as we are moving internationally.  Please spread the word on Google+, at work or school and help us find a great Brisbane home for Darcy!

Thought I'd check out Tosca - a software testing tool over the weekend.  Quick Google search and the first click leads me to a 404 on the vendor website.

Hmm... Shoe makers children going barefoot again or a testing tool that is missing the mark?

I was thinking about obvious.io this morning on my cycle to work.  I was wanting a way to auto email web content - say so my jira dashboard shows up in my outlook inbox each morning.

Its actually quite hard to if not built into the existing web app. What I  really want is just a snapshot of a page on a set interval via email.

I could then subscribe to sites by url and interval quite simply and it could support almost any site.  So I can gather data this way from various different sources.

I assume obvious.io compares a hash of a snapshot but not sure if it actually harvests those snapshots.  Haven't searched to see if it is a problem solved already - would leverage an opensource tool if there is one to solve my use case.

Sorry to hear Melbourne wasn't looking any better.  Hopefully the weekend isn't more of the same.  Not looking good for a ride tomorrow - 60% chance of rain :(

Ah I so miss Google Docs at work...  There's only so many uses for Docs Fu like this at home :)
 
Importing Web Data into Google Spreadsheet

Did you know you can import tables available online directly into +Google Drive? That can be done using the ImportHTML function on  Google Spreadsheets and will save you a lot of time. The image below shows how to do it (source goo.gl/19mojE).
