Tickle Me Outlook

Tue, 21 Mar 2006 14:54:00 +0000

The tickler file is another concept that I first encountered in David Allen's Getting Things Done, though its been around for quite a while. Definitions of what a tickler file is are on the web, but the basic idea is that you put reminders into a a file for each day and open up the...

Outlook’s Inboxes

Mon, 13 Mar 2006 14:20:00 +0000

A column by Jason Fry in the WSJ (registration required) talks about how he's changing how he uses his email inbox and in the process, talks about how people see the purpose of an email inbox differently. This got me thinking about how I've used my inbox in the past and how I'd like to...

Versus vs boring

Tue, 01 Nov 2005 13:14:00 +0000

Admittedly, the titles of the last couple posts are misleading. Habits and Things aren’t in combat or anything; Neither are Getting Things Done and First Things First. I’ve just found that contrasting the different principles of Getting Things Done and 7 Habits / First Things First helps me to understand those principles better and find...

Habits vs Things

Tue, 01 Nov 2005 13:07:00 +0000

One of the challenges that I and many others face with David Allen’s Getting Things Done (GTD) is that the number of next actions, someday/maybe items, and lists in general seems to be out of control. Mr. Allen recognizes this to some extent and encourages dividing next actions into lists by context. Ideally, this means...

Getting Things Done vs First Things First

Fri, 28 Oct 2005 14:53:00 +0000

Ok, so the title of this post is a bit over the top - I recognize that in some ways David Allen's Getting Things Done (GTD) and Stephen Covey's First Things First (FTF, the sequel to 7 Habits) are orthogonal - they address somewhat different problems in the time management arena. But anyway... I was...

Replication API update

Stephen Griffin has another great update for the replication API at

Hotfixes for Outlook

Fri, 22 Jul 2005 15:31:00 +0000

I recently learned more about how hotfixes work for Outlook (and I assume, all of the Office apps). After we release a new version of Outlook, large companies occasionally come back to us and ask us to change something immediately. Sometimes it's a bug fix that affects them, or a change to the design of...

Outlook Integration API Round 2

Wed, 11 May 2005 16:48:00 +0000

There is an update out for the Outlook Integration APIs documentation. It fixes some errors in the documentation and includes replication APIs that enable you to create your own store provider based on the pst store provider that can synchronize with a server.

Outlook Symbols

Mon, 18 Apr 2005 15:45:00 +0000

So, I've been looking into why Office, and therefore Outlook, doesn't offer symbols to ISV developers creating Office solutions in the same way that Windows symbols are available to those writing software on Windows. It took way too much time and emails to get to the right person for this, but I finally did, and...

Well, I took the dive into ActiveWords. There is a lot of potential here, and I think the vision that the company has is awesome. For now, it's a great way to get my stuff done a little faster. I have found that it has also inspired me to learn more keyboard shortcuts in order...
