Joe Nguyen from Online University stumbled upon my post on the slow carb diet and other posts here and guessed correctly that I am interested in healthy work life. He sent me a really interesting infographic called “Work Is Murder” that he thought my readers might like. I think so too… Food for thought indeed! (and I am now somewhat happy that my TV currently doesn’t work )
The task management product being built by my company, nfrmtn, has now opened up for you to sign up to be notified when we open up for the first beta testers! Please go to eeTask to sign up – your help would be greatly appreciated! And you get a sneak peek at where we’re heading… Will be good, I promise!
Over the last couple of years, I’ve grown into becoming a person with a lot of ideas. Combine this with the empathy I’ve learnt from my girlfriend and the fact that my fathers’ illness (brain tumor) has shown me that life is short, I decided to found a company to help others in May 2011. Named nfrmtn (pronounced information), I have a long list of ideas to implement through this company. I am funding the company myself and I have no intention of quitting my job as an SAP HR Consultant. The current projects are focused on task management and the first product is already designed and I’m reviewing possible implementation partners as I don’t have the time to do this myself. Later, the focus will be on developing task management in both a social and a corporate direction. Head on over there and have a look! And you can of course also find us on Twitter and Facebook.
From the end of March until July, both my girlfriend and I went on Tim Ferriss‘ Slow Carb diet described in his excellent book called “The Four Hour Body“. I’m posting our results here as the diet was very successful for us and I hope this will inspire others!
I have recently been hit more and more by an issue that only occurs when I am on an unstable connection (i.e. when I’m working on the train between Copenhagen and Odense). If I lose my connection, my VPN client says it reconnects but it appears not always to be the case. However, Outlook thinks it’s connected, so it apparently sends any e-mails I have in my outbox. The problem is that I then believe they’ve been sent (!) but when I then look in my Inbox I see those annoying auto generated mails saying “Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients” and then lists every single recipient even though they are all valid… An example of the format is as below:
Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.
Subject: RE: ES Office addresses incorrect
Sent: 28-06-2011 06:03
The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:
<Colleague name> on 28-06-2011 08:05
None of your e-mail accounts could send to this recipient.
In the above case, I sent an e-mail the minute after which went through OK. Do anyone out there know what’s going on? Any setting in Outlook that can be tweaked to say “double check connection before sending” or something?
Very interesting TED talk… Sounds like a sensible thing to look out for.
Couldn’t help myself to check what my iPhone had been tracking… Looks pretty accurate except for a couple of strange datapoints. Guess where our offices are!
I have been helping the Danish Society for Apoplexy to set up a new website. It’s a simple WordPress site, slightly modified to their requests. Go have a look at their site here – went live a week ago!
With the terrible earthquake occurring near Japan and the following tsunami, I was quite affected and it made me wonder: Are we moving towards more of a One World way of thinking? Feeling more like a single planet rather than individual countries?
Every day over 200 billion e-mails will be sent this year. I’ll contribute 10k+ during the year, so if there’s anything that will help me speed that up, I’m interested! The content always varies, but there’s one thing that is relatively static: The Signature. The perfect tool for this is a small free program called AutoHotkey.
