Google Notebook

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Productivity|Web

If you haven’t checked out Google Notebook, you should check it out. It’s a pretty cool plugin for browsers (it works in Fire Fox, which I use most often and Internet Explorer as well) that allows you to copy and paste text and photos from web pages and save them for later. This would be […]

Recent dream

Posted by: Above The Aether In: Dreams

I had a dream the other night that I was living back in Golden, CO and standing in the parking lot in front of my old apartment complex. A large car (a Lincoln or a Cadillac I think) slowly begins backing toward me, and the person inside doesn’t see me. I try to get the […]
