This is the second year I have participated in MOvember, a fun activity to raise awareness about men’s health, specifically prostate cancer. What we do is grow a mustache during the month of November and try to raise as much money for prostate cancer. Last year I shaved my beard (that I have had for 20 years) & let it grow back. This year I am set on not letting my beard grow back until December, so that I can really highlight my “mo.” I’m getting lots of questions about shaving, and I have even received a few donations on my MO page. My goal is to raise $200.
Below is my MO, two weeks old.
Make a donation to support the fight against prostate cancer. Your support is greatly appreciated.
My 12-year-old daughter is having a sleepover with 8 friends. They all own laptop computers.
I have set over/under for how many of her friends will bring their laptops at 4.5. What do you think? I’ll let you know the outcome in a few days.
(If you are unfamiliar with this type of wagering: You select if you think the final number is over or under the specified number. In this case, if you think that 5 or more of my daughter’s friends will bring their laptops to the sleepover, you bet “over.” If you think that 4 or less will bring their laptops you bet “under.”)
I have been working on consolidating my photos from several different computers into one definitive iPhoto library with all of my digital photos. After reimaging computers at school and restoring files to the way they were before the reimaging (as best we could), we had several people with multiple copies of photos in their iPhoto libraries. Duplifinder solved this problem for me.
When I began searching for a solution I came across a thread on Mac Rumors that led me to some possibilities. I spent a couple of hours researching the different software solutions, reading the literature, and testing them out. I really liked Tidy Up!, which I found on the OS X Mac Tips & Tricks blog. Tidy Up! will also find duplicates in your iTunes library and several other places on your Mac. The reason I decided not to buy it is the $33 price tag. I also checked out Duplicate Annihilator, but didn’t get the visual representation of the photos I wanted. The software I finally decided on is Duplifinder. Only $7 and it went through my entire 13,000+ iPhoto library, found all the duplicates, and gave me the option of deleting all the duplicates in one click, or one at a time. Duplifinder is a great tool at a very reasonable price. I recommended it to my entire staff.
