Wheat from the chaff

Welcome to Sharing Sundays! In September, Sundays will be "like a box of chocolates". I'll be reaching into a bag filled with things like "this made my life easier somehow", "this person's work is neat", "this article is worth reading", "this picture just has be looked at", "this video just has to be watched", and "TMI" -- so you'll never know what you're going to get.

Let's see what made it onto the list this week:
  • Roboform
    Roboform is a password manager and web form filler. Until Christian gifted me with a license for my desktop machine, I had held on to the belief that it wouldn't be all that useful. Hadn't I lived without it for all these years, after all?

    Within a few days of license ownership, I was addicted to the point that I bought an additional license for my laptop. However, I didn't reach this evangelist stage until this week when I set up Roboform's "Sync" capability. Now, whatever accounts I set up while I am away on one machine are instantly available to me on the other when I get home. Now, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Roboform.

    If you find yourself filling in a myriad of on-line applications (perhaps you're looking for a job or pitching for a couple different grants) I would even more highly recommend you look into this product.

  • Birdwoman
    This blog is the virtual artist's journal of Kaetlyn Wilcox. Infused with pictures of her process and her sense of humor, the blog is both a beauty and a hoot.

  • Syd Lieberman -- Free storytelling recordings!
    I've had the privilege of hearing Syd tell stories in person, but many people haven't. With the help of his web designer, Syd undertook the project of putting all his recordings on line and available for free.

    Believe me, this means you are LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY. Like many professional storytellers, he has honed his craft over years and years of performing. You would be doing yourself an injustice if you didn't hop over and listen to a story RIGHT THIS SECOND.

  • Free World Geography games
    I think these tutorial/games are very well put together. The games are structured in such a way that you get the opportunity to develop a little muscle before you're asked to flex and build it up. Of course, you can start at any level you like if you're coming to the game with some previously acquired knowledge.

Check these things out and then let me know what you think!

Also, check in tomorrow at for a Project Management themed post. Tomorrow is also the day I will finally propose the contest I have been considering...
