A messy desk doesn't always mean a messy mind. Like my brther usually says about me,"If only your desk were as organized as your mind!". Of course then there is this peril of tongue-loose comments of colleagues about your being not at all busy!. One cannot gainsay the retrievability of information by "anyone-else" though

BLOCKED! Darn! Just give us the script from the video so we can at least read it. Thanks

Fortunately we're not blocket (yet). The videos are well done and I enjoy them -- even the silly outtakes following the credits. Jason, who is the off-camera stage hand who passed the whiteboard and the coffee mug to you? How about a little recognition for the behind-the-scenes folks? Don't forget, most of your audience works behind the scenes too :)

I have been trying probably every Time Management /Project Management software out there in the last 15 years, and I'm now happy with Clocking IT -http://www.clockingit.com/ It's completely free and maintained by one lone coder. You can download it and install it on you company's server or use their (free too) own server (and backup the data when necessary). A great app, constantly improving, that helped me solve 50% of my time management issues.

Not related to the video, which is blocked where I work and no doubt where a lot of IT pros work. That is my point. We can't see the content at work, where we most likely need it. We can se the article so I guess this covers the bases. Just thought you may like to know. Thanks

we offer the file as a download? Could you download the file (probably a MOV file) and watch it with QuickTime on your machine at work? I'm not promising that we can do that -- at least not yet -- but it's something we're considering. Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it.

You then get in to the relm of allowing these things to become video podcasts.
