https://tailscale.com/ — just became a fan boy of this product within 30 minutes of installing it. Very cool product if you’re looking to avoid VPNs / expose internal network resources to your team.

@loren Mind sharing links to who you follow? I’d like to follow along on that front. Seems like they have a number of things on the todo list that I’m interested in.

@Erik Osterman (Cloud Posse) I’m going to try it out with a client and see how it goes. Once I have a real setup in place I’d be happy to though.

Hi Everyone, I would be very grateful If you’d spend 10 minutes of your time to answer this survey//managementism.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9uXPZCLvOPWM1xP> It’s very quick and it’s about people opinion about cloud computing for businesses.  This would help me immensely as I’m struggling to get enough participants

Seeing this on a github pull request, I believe it’s the deploy status of Netlify for the branch. What is this type of status called, and is there an API to create similar “statuses” for other apps?

ah, Github Deployments

Finally pulled the trigger and bought a Timeular tracker

I’m already liking the API integration into Toggl since I use that a lot too

Interesting. I could see being into this… Let me know how you like it after a couple weeks.

imiltchman avatar

I used it for a month and then I stopped

roth.andy avatar
roth.andy

I’m required to fill out a pretty detailed timesheet every day, and I already track my time in Toggl, so it should definitely be a value add for me

roth.andy avatar
roth.andy

I’m loving it so far. The physical tracker thingy arrived in the mail 2 days ago. It is very accurate. I’ve never once had it do something I didn’t intend it to do

roth.andy avatar

And the integration with Toggl (which I use heavily) works flawlessly

Matt Gowie avatar

Sweet… I may have to pick one up. I use toggl as well for tracking hours for clients and I could definitely be better at it.

Update on the Timeular tracker:

I’ve been using it for several weeks now. I absolutely love it. It makes tracking my time every day virtually effortless. Sometimes I forget to flip the tracker when I switch contexts, but it is very easy to go into the app and adjust. I have it connected to my laptop via bluetooth, and they provide a desktop app for seamless connectivity. It automatically goes to sleep when I put it in its little cradle and wakes up when I pick it up the next morning.

@roth.andy I bought one a week or two after you — I’m digging it as well so thank you for the recommendation!

I’ve also noticed it helps me avoid getting distracted. I see the tracker sitting on my desk and which side is facing up and that helps me stay focused on tasks that are important for that particular project while filtering out other stuff. I try to avoid flipping the tracker more than once every 15 minutes or so.

roth.andy avatar
roth.andy

But if I’m blasting through my email inbox it is very easy to flip it every couple of minutes since email is usually all over the place

roth.andy avatar
roth.andy

And I’m happy that that all gets tracked accurately. Before it was just a wild guess after spending 1+ hour on email to break out that time accurately
