Google Pages - Online notepad?

I just discovered Google Pages. It’s a nice basic WYSIWYG web page editor. Honestly, I don’t really have use for a web page editor as I do all my editing in Visual Studio or UltraEdit. Anyway, I’m excited to use it as an online note pad. That is one thing I feel is missing from GMail. I usually use an email draft to store notes. This may provide a sufficient alternative. We’ll see.

Self-Discipline

I am a natural procrastinator and lack some basic self-discipline. I came across a great pod cast from John MacArthur on self-discipline. Below are some of the key points and I would like to star integrating these into my life:

  • Start small (create a list)
  • Be on time
  • Keep your word
  • Do the hardest task first
  • Finish what you start
  • Practice self denial (just say no sometimes to know you can say “no”)
  • Volunteer

The Biblical basis for these concepts start with 1 Peter 1:13

DateTime Visualizer for Visual Studio 2005

I was doing some DateTime manipulation in a recent project and I could not remember which DateTime format gave me which output. I searched Google for any existing visualizers and could not find any that fulfilled this purpose. So, I created one. Below are some screen shots of what it looks like. Even further down are the binaries and source code. Enjoy!
