“Where’s Wally” is a well known children’s (and adult’s!) entertainment. There is a picture. Hidden, somewhere in that picture, is Wally. Alone or together one pores over the book, hunting desperately for the elusive little man. Sometimes people are in a race to find Wally, and the race is won by being the first to point to Wally.

Living an organised life in the cloud, part 3: Anytime Tasks

This blog has been split in three and all content moved to the new blogs – Qua Locus LifeQua Locus Tech and Qua Locus Puzzle – comments are disabled here.

This is part 3 of a series of posts, describing how I organise my life and everything in it. Rather than an ad hoc scattering of random ideas hodge-podged together, I had time recently to engineer a system that really works.
