A Shorter Way to Get to System Properties in Windows
Here's a handy little way to get to the System properties window in Windows OSes. Open a Windows Explorer Window, on the left side, in the tree view, right-click "Computer", select "Properties". That's it. I'm sure that there is probably a keyboard short-cu...

I'm still on the fence about the different note taking apps available, Evernote, Springpad, OneNote, so I've been experimenting with all three. One of the thinkgs that I noticed in the web version of Evernote is the in abilit...

"The next time you go outside, stop and take a look around and see what catches your eye."

My daughter said that, and its an amazing truth. Photography has taught me to look at the world differently, and its given me a way to express myself. For me photography is not a job, I don't make my living at it, for me, its simply a way to share the world as I see it with others. Its my creative outlet.

I often find myself envious of professional photographers, out there doing what they truly love, but then I remember, I do get to do something for a living that I truly enjoy, and I get to save photography for that little something extra.
