Random tasks in Outlook

Found this way of picking a random task from Outlook. You do need to have FailBllog in you RSS feeds to get the full “benefit” of not completing the task you’ve been set. Whilst it cannot pick from the most important tasks in your list, it can be a good way to get through some of the tasks you’ve been putting off!

Storing bookmarks

Following on from the post about storing lists, I was readinga piece by David Pierce on his site; digitizd. He covers an area that I need to devote some time sorting out, bookmarks.

Currently I use the Read it later addin for Firefox to store links and xmarks BYOS to sync them between my computers. Because I also sync passwords, I store these on my own server, rather than on the xmarks server.

The problem is that I manage to miss these out of my reviews, largely because I haven’t worked out how to store the ones I want to keep long term. I’ve been thinking about storing article of interest in OneNote, in this way the content is searchable and the original link is retained so I can go back to the site for updates.

I will ponder on this and report back as and when I find a system that works for me. any suggestions are most welcome!
