We are Facebook Products

Now that Facebook has decided to try a new revenue model, that involves you paying to promote your latest Facebook status (especially if you have a Facebook pages) maybe it is time to consider deciding to stop being a product that Facebook sells.

I myself have tried to limit the interaction I have with Facebook, even if some people think that I am ignoring them by not replying to updates and pictures they post and tag with my name.

Jesus Paid it All

I stumbled across this yesterday and definitely like the vibe of it.  This is the second version I have heard from the original hymn.  I do like it and would love to have been part of the congregation when this was recorded.

You can buy the album Sin from Kings Kaleidescope over at BandCamp.

Thanks for sharing this Dave.

How to Move an IMAP Folder File

How to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst) ?

In order to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst), you have to first close Outlook, then make sure Outlook is not listed in Task Manager, Processes tab, a few minutes after you close it.

Steps to move the IMAP personal folder (*.pst)

  1. Open the profile (Control panel, Mail) and click on Data files.
  2. Select the IMAP account and click Open Folder to open the folder containing the PST.
  3. Move the PST to the desired location. Do not rename the file; Outlook creates a new file in the default location if you try to rename it—you can only move it.
  4. Switch to the Data Files window and double click on the account’s data file.
  5. Now you’ll get the ‘can’t find’ error which can tell outlook where to find it.
  6. Close the dialogs and you are ready to restart outlook.

Place the Big Rocks First

Stephen Covey in his book, First Things First, shares the following story experienced by one of his associates:

One day this expert was speaking to a group of business students and, to drive home a point, used an illustration I’m sure those students will never forget. After I share it with you, you’ll never forget it either.

As this man stood in front of the group of high-powered over-achievers he said, “Okay, time for a quiz.” Then he pulled out a one-gallon, wide-mouthed mason jar and set it on a table in front of him. Then he produced about a dozen fist-sized rocks and carefully placed them, one at a time, into the jar.

When the jar was filled to the top and no more rocks would fit inside, he asked, “Is this jar full?” Everyone in the class said, “Yes.” Then he said, “Really?” He reached under the table and pulled out a bucket of gravel. Then he dumped some gravel in and shook the jar causing pieces of gravel to work themselves down into the spaces between the big rocks.

Then he smiled and asked the group once more, “Is the jar full?” By this time the class was onto him. “Probably not,” one of them answered. “Good!” he replied. And he reached under the table and brought out a bucket of sand. He started dumping the sand in and it went into all the spaces left between the rocks and the gravel. Once more he asked the question, “Is this jar full?”

“No!” the class shouted. Once again he said, “Good!” Then he grabbed a pitcher of water and began to pour it in until the jar was filled to the brim. Then he looked up at the class and asked, “What is the point of this illustration?”

One eager beaver raised his hand and said, “The point is, no matter how full your schedule is, if you try really hard, you can always fit some more things into it!”

“No,” the speaker replied, “that’s not the point. The truth this illustration teaches us is: If you don’t put the big rocks in first, you’ll never get them in at all.”

I’m Failing

I really am failing.  I thought it would be easy enough to post daily for NaBloPoMo and I am already failing at being daily. I have no idea how some people do it, especially those people who choose to write 30,000 words in a month for NaNoWriMo.  I think I’m going to be lucky to write even 1000 words for the entire month, even though I have no plan to set myself a word count.

This post is part of NaBloPoMo for November 2012.  As much as I can, I will be attempting to post new content here on my blog, whether is is a quote, an image, or a full blown blog post.
