Finding the personal workflow to organise your tasks and projects can be daunting and might require a lot experimentation with different tools and methods. I am a heavy user of email using Gmail and finally settled with a simple, yet effective todo list method.
Taskand give the email
<yourGmailAdress>+firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not know what the

I send Gmail emails from the command line to quickly create new tasks as outlined in the post Simple Gmail Todo List Task Planner. The following steps describe how to configure a Linux system to send emails from the command line using the Gmail backend.
__________ ~/.msmtprc __________ # # Gmail account # defaults logfile ~/.msmtp.log account gmail auth on host smtp.gmail.com from <username>@gmail.com auth on tls on tls_trust_file /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt user <username>@gmail.com password <password> port 587 account default : gmail
__________ ~/.mailrc __________ set sendmail="/usr/bin/msmtp" set message-sendmail-extra-arguments="-a gmail"
I am trying to bring consistency into the naming of my files and folders. My file naming principles underlie the following objectives: * Usability in terms of easiness to type the name of folder, file or script * Natural human readability without obscure characters * Quick retrieval when performing a search * Compability with Linux command line interfaces
What are your file naming principles?
I rely on a large number of Add-ons for Mozilla's Firefox and Thunderbird. Many of them are inevitable to fulfil my personal workflow. I want to use this post to express my gratitude to the developers for their hard work and to regularly update my reviews of these add-ons based on personal experience with recent versions of Firefox and Thunderbird.
