nodemailer Send e-mails from Node.js – easy as cake! Upgrade warning Do not upgrade Nodemailer from 0.7 or lower to 1.0 as there are breaking changes.

It’s a relatively simple feature, but once you start using it, you’ll wonder how you lived without it. Docking is particularly useful when you’re taking notes from another window and you find yourself constantly switching from that window to OneNote to jot down your notes. Examples include online videos, PDF lecture notes, PowerPoint presentations, etc. In order to enter Docked mode, all you have to do is go to the View menu and select Dock to Desktop.

According to Gartner, new technology with the potential to be exponential usually follows a predictable cycle: Early innovation, then a peak of inflated expectations, then a period of disillusionment, followed by a steady rise to ubiquity and profitability.For instance, Gartner is pointing to autonomous vehicles as a technology at the peak of hype. But that doesn’t mean that autonomous vehicles won’t change the world — they will, but it might take 5 to 10 years to be commercially viable.

The battle between SSD and HDD is over, and the winner is clear Hadrian While there are merits to both Solid State Drives and Hard Disk Drives, the choice at this point is clear — you need an SSD. The price advantage HDDs once held is quickly slipping, and unless you have 1TB or more of data to store, you should buy a system with an SSD. They provide a noticeable bump in performance during boot-up times and data movement, often clocking in at five times faster than the speeds possible on an HDD.
