End Time Zone Confusion

I recently discovered TheTimeZoneConverter.com for quick and easy time conversions. It’s pretty straight forward. In the box on the left your current time zone is automatically filled in (you can change this to any major city if you want to). From the pulldown menu on the right side of the page, select a city / country. The current time in the city / country you selected is immediately displayed.


1Password

1pass

I originally recommended this program in 2011 and am including the original post below. I still use this program daily and highly recommend it!

REVIEW: I started using 1Password after the "great computer crash of '10. It's an easy-to-use program that stores not only your passwords, but identities, secure notes, and software info (licenses, confirmation emails, etc).

They offer a 30-day free trial and the program is very reasonably priced. (Prices vary based on the gadget / operating system you are using.)

They make a version for Mac, Windows, iPhone, iPad, and Android.

This program saves me so much time each day. No more searching for passwords, logins, or filling out online forms!


Browser tabs out of control?

Are your web browser tabs out of control? Mine were until I discovered OneTab, a web browser extension.

I always have multiple  tabs open in my browser and it gets a bit much at times (and on occasion I have accidentally closed them all – arggghhh). As soon as I heard about OneTab, I knew I had to try it. Here is the description from their website…

“Whenever you find yourself with too many tabs, click the OneTab icon to convert all of your tabs into a list. When you need to access the tabs again, you can either restore them individually or all at once.”

And yes, it is that simple! And best of all, if you accidentally close the window OneTab is in, you will NOT lose your list of tabs. (I have put this to the test many times.)

So how much is this nifty program and how do you get it?

Right now, there is no charge. Go to https://www.one-tab.com/ and scroll down to “How to Install OneTab,” click on the link and follow the directions to install it. They have two versions – one for Chrome and one for Firefox.

Note: it offers other features and they’re all listed on the One Tab site.


Red Cross Trauma Recovery Guidelines

Bernice Ross did a great post on Trauma Recovery Guidelines from the Red Cross.

Here's an excerpt from the post... "If you have encountered a type of stress outside the realm of usual human experiences, you can expect to experience the after effects to varying degrees. The acknowledgment of these emotional reactions helps to shorten recovery time and prevent complications through the natural healing process."

Be sure to read the whole post, it's very good information to know -- even if you don't need it right now.


Composing an About Page

Kathi King of REICaravan.com shared a great article with me this morning on writing an effective AND interesting about page.

Not only does the article have some good tips, but it also gives examples of About pages that do and don't work. What about pages do you think are really good? bad?
