I only purchased the blog in January after someone else failed to renew the name.  I was looking for a low cost name which the are at only .99 per year.  I looked this number up as it is one of the few phone numbers that I actually remember now that all my contacts live in my phone.  The person that had the name before me simply setup a wordpress website and did not make any posts or attempts to post anything.  I assume they were simply hoping to sell the name at a higher price.  When that did not work, they dropped it and I picked it up.  As you can see from the number of posts, I have not done much either.  I have always assumed much of the traffic here at the start was from things the previous owner of did with the name.  I am attempting to track visitors through settings and analytics.  Blogger reports that I had 312 visitors to this site, while cloudflare tells me I have had 912 unique visitors in the last 30 days.  Obviously a significant difference in the measured visitors.  I assume part of the difference is that cloudflare servers some pages as static if is down or to slow.  I might have to setup google analytics and see if I can figure out if that differentiates between the two services.  Now you have a bit of information on how unsuccessful my blog has been.  Rock on!

An open love letter to Microsoft OneNote

  This is an open love letter to Microsoft   OneNote .  I finally get you.  I have struggled with you for years, never quite seeing the power of your platform.  I am not sure that I have the best organization for the data that I collect with various sections, pages and notebooks.  I have created various entries and collected some somewhat useful data, but honestly until recently   OneNote   has been my second or third choice for saving research.  What recently changed for   m e has been connecting the   OneNote   clipper extension.  The   OneNote   clipper extension has enabled me to capture an entire article as searchable data.  In the past, I generally found that I needed to copy and paste to have all the text saved to   OneNote .  I did try the print to   OneNote   printer driver, while it did capture all the data of the article it seems to be   an image   file.  I was not able to copy and paste text from a printed article and the title is simply printout on my   OneNote   book.  Cl
