Windows only: Freeware application DriveImage XML creates and restores images of any drive or partition on your system. That means that next time you freshly install Windows on your computer (whether XP or Vista), you can back up that clean and sparkling system state with DriveImage XML.
As noted in one of Kelly Forrister’s recent posts, she talked about over-engineering your GTD system. I’ve been there. I have been the victim of my own over-engineering. I found myself spending more time managing my lists than actioning my lists.
I eventually learned to simplify. Here is the simple method I use to manage my tasks in Microsoft Outlook.
- I keep it current. I review my tasks at least once a day. I clear out the completed items. I add any new items.
ActionThis is a web- based service for managing projects and tasks and making sure they get finished. ActionThis works with your everyday tools to help you get stuff done and go home early.
Does your to-do list still consist of a bunch of post-it notes strewn around your desk? Even if you’ve already moved to one of the many good solutions for electronically managing your tasks, you may want to look into the new overhaul of Mojonote. The new version is a free, on-demand online application, and in addition to a neat and tidy interface, it lets you manage most aspects of your working life.
Up until recently, the Windows Live team was rolling out new services on an almost weekly basis. But the long-rumored Windows Live Calendar — for some reason — never was part of this fast-track of Live service launches. It sounds like that’s about to change, however. The LiveSide.Net site is reporting that a beta of Windows Live Calendar briefly went live over the past weekend, but is back to its missing-in-action state. LiveSide’s bet is Windows Live Calendar might finally see the light of beta day the week of November 5.
