Preparing for the summer season with these beauties

Hot Rox Hand Warmer

I can't recommend the Hot Rox Hand Warmer with USB charger highly enough. I've used this out on the archery field in the depths of winter for that extra bit of warmth between shots. I'm considering getting another one for my other pocket.

5:2 Diet

This revolutionary new approach to weight loss really is as simple as it sounds: you eat normally five days a week, then for just two days you cut your calories (500 for women, 600 for men).

Dobble Card Game

We played the Dobble Card Game at New Year. It's like snap on steroids and very entertaining - especially after a few festive ales. I have now secured my own set ready for next time, but I won't be able to wait until New Year.

GTD (Getting things done) in the middle of the night? Then why not use an LED illuminated pen, like the one available at Am-Tech LED Pen Light CDU

LiveDrive - unlimited online storage

Livedrive automatically backs up your files safely online. It constantly monitors your computer for new files and changes and you can restore files – even deleted files – quickly and easily. It’s totally secure, easy to use and quick to setup. Best of all, you get unlimited online storage space as standard!

What does unlimited backup space mean?

Unlimited backup space means that you can put as much as you want on your Livedrive without worrying about it - so that you can backup your entire PC, regardless of how much data you have. Many Livedrive customers store hundreds of gigabytes, some store over a terabyte. Livedrive don't limit the amount you backup, neither do they limit the amount you upload or download to the Livedrive servers (the bandwidth). You really can use Livedrive as much as you want.

Getting things done methodology

We are a big believer in getting things done. That's why we employ the techniques described by David Allen in his book

We also use his outlook add-in to be as productive as possible.

Doiop URL shortener

Does what it says on the tin. The beauty of this particular URL shortener is that you can specify your own keywords. Nice.
