Monday, December 31st, 2007

I noticed I began experiencing frequent "The application has been requested to terminate"-type crashes since upgrading to the SP1 release for MindManager 7 where as the original release was pretty stable.

Outlinker Update

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

I made a few big improvements to the OutLinker macro today. It now stores its configuration settings in a notes folder so it is easier to upgrade/configure without editing code. It will also prompt user for the archive store/folder if it doesn’t find them. For fun it counts the number of messages you have processed […]

When was the last time your inbox looked like this? The holy grail of Getting Things Done (GTD) is routinely emptying your various Inboxes to zero and processing the context into projects and next actions. Tools like GyroQ can help you capture ideas and process your paper in-trays, but if you are working in the […]

Gyro-gone?

Saturday, December 8th, 2007

If you or your company use McAfee for virus scanning, then your GyroQ executable was likely automatically deleted yesterday afternoon due to a false-positive in their virus signatures for 32/YahLover.worm. The McAfee signature file was fixed by midnight, but you'll now have to reinstall GyroQ. See Gyronix Forum for more info and a download link. […]
