Index of /~dgraham/ETM Making Getting Things Done easier is etm's goal. Getting Things Done, commonly abbreviated as GTD, is an action management method, and the title of a extremely popular book by David Allen. GTD rests on the common sense notion that with a complete and current inventory of all commitments, organized and reviewed in a systematic way, the mind is freed from the job of remembering everything that needs to be done, and can focus on actually performing those tasks. Three observations are critical: GTD thus requires convenient methods for:

Mirror: The Coming War: ARM versus x86 » Van's Hardware Journal Note: This report was originally published at Bright Side of News* on April 8, 2010. After their server crashed, BSN* has not yet been able to recover the article after several weeks. We are reposting the report here to serve as a mirror of the original article. There are likely to be minor editing differences with the BSN* article. Note 2: Only a month or two after it was published, a detailed report that I wrote was wiped out during a BrightSideOfNews* hard drive crash. That exhaustive report, praised by many throughout the industry as the finest of its kind yet produced, examined the emerging and inevitable ARM versus x86 clash.

Taskfile: A Tasklist Compiler Taskfile is aggregates task information from text files using GNU Make. Taskfile supports task tracking for a diverse collection of workflows and tools. Overview Taskfile, using GNU Make, compiles a tasklist from one or more directories of files, using keywords (i.e. “TODO”, “FIXME”, “FROZEN”) to identify tasks and then generate a task list. - Free alternative for backing up VM's for ESX(i) 3.5, 4.x+ & 5.x DescriptionFeaturesRequirementsSetupConfigurationsUsageSample Execution Dry run ModeDebug backup ModeBackup VMs stored in a listBackup All VMs residing on specific ESX(i) hostBackup All VMs residing on specific ESX(i) host and exclude the VMs in the exclusion listBackup VMs using individual backup policies Enable compression for backupsEmail Backup Logs Restore backups ( FAQStopping ghettoVCB ProcessFAQOur NFS Server ConfigurationUseful LinksChange Log This script performs backups of virtual machines residing on ESX(i) 3.5/4.x/5.x servers using methodology similar to VMware's VCB tool.

Getting Things Done with Semantic Notes — Abolish Me Let’s right away throw traditional string tagging out the window.* Formally adding content-related strings as “tags” for a note is, in my opinion, a recipe for a GTD breakdown. If you are capable of using (and reviewing) tags like “recipes”, “roadtrip”, “quotes”, and “read” on a regular basis, then hat’s off to you. But I’ve never found this solution to be 1., quick on the draw, and 2., uniform enough to recall and follow without error. Next, if these tags contain important pieces of information like an associated larger project or area of responsibility, you’ll completely lose that information when you export the note to send it to someone else, or archive it outside of your note cloud. In my view, remembering to use string tags in a mobile environment is just distracting, and when I’m at my computer they’re practically useless — perhaps most critically, they have case-sensitivity and duplicate/overlap issues which make handling massive and immersive systems like GTD incomprehensible.
