Hey Google, where is the offline mode?

2 years ago I wrote a post about the need of offline mode for google services (google documents and gmail).
Offline mode is really a missing feature especially  for people who travel.

2 years ago, google used to use a plugin “google gear” to implement a minimal offline mode : mails were accessible and documents were in read-only mode.

Where are we 2 years later ?

Nowhere.

Google gears has disappeared.

For gmail an application is available in the chrome webstore, but it’s not really good as it’s not consistent with the normal way to access gmail.

Google promised to implement offline using html5, but it’s still not available.

If anyone knows about the roadmap, let me know !

My experience with ZTD / Week 4 results (3 MITs per day) : 59 % success !

Pasture Juniper  (Juniperus communis ssp. depressa)

This is the report #4 of my experimental implementation of  Zen To Done the productivity methodology by Leo Babauta.

As a reminder, the first habit I’ve decided to implement is to define every morning the 3 Most Important Topics (MITs) I want / need / commit to achieve during the day.

During week #1, the success rate has been 52 % (11/21) , during week #2, it has been 47% (9/19), and during week #3, a total failure (6%)…

Here’re the results of week #4 :

 

  • 3 MITs for the week : Did I defined 3 MITs  ? :  YES,  How many did I achieve : 1/3
  •  Day 1 (February 6th) : Did I defined 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve :3/3
  • Day 2  (February 7th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 1/2
  • Day 3 (February 8th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 2/3
  • Day 4 (February 9th) :Did I define 3 MITs ? : NO
  • Day 5 (February 10th) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : Yes, How many did I achieve : 3/3
  • Total : I’ve defined the MITs 4 times instead of 5, I’ve achieved  10/17 (59%).

 What are  my conclusions ?

  • 10/17  is a better  result compare to last week and is my best result ever!
  • As decided last week, I’ve improved my routine, and I’ve defined the 3 MITs  before starting my day except on day 4.

For the new coming week, my objective is to continue the implementation of this new habit, with a better result. If the result is there, it will be time to implement a new habbit !

My best photos : Snow in the Alps

This is a very simple photo take from the window of my house.

I like the snow on the trees, it’s nice, quiet, and remind me a lot of good memories !

This post is part of a serie of posts in which I present my best photos. All of them have been taken by me. The quality is not professionnal of course, but I love them. You can find all the posts here.

My running report : January 2012

With this post I start a new series in which I’ll report my running activity.

I started to run seriously in June 2010, 18 months ago.

Palais de L'Isle in Annecy

Annecy

My objective is to be able to run a marathon. This should happen this year in october in Amsterdam (to be confirmed).

My short term objective is to run the Annecy half-Marathon on apritl 15th.

I ran this race in 2011 in 2:07.

The objective for this year is to go below 2 hours.

This will be a big challenge as my agenda is really full in the next months.

In January I ran 39 km. This is quite low, last year I ran 83.

My motivation was not very high, and I did not manage to find the motivation to wake-up at 5:30 am to run in the cold night.

The race is now in 10 weeks, so it’s time to start to run seriously 3 times per week.

My best Chrome extensions : aviary

Aviary is an online image editor that proposes a full range of tools.

I use it when I have simple images to edit.

I like it because it’s easy, simple, free, and in the cloud, so I’ve access to all my creation whatever device I use.

The aviary chrome extension is very basic, with a simple click it capture the current page and opens aviary for further editing.

If you have to do such action, I highly recommend you to install it.

I use it a lot.

If you want to try it, just follow the link.

 


  

My experience with ZTD / Week 3 results (3 MITs per day) : 6% success (94% failure…)

Pasture Juniper  (Juniperus communis ssp. depressa)

This is the report #3 of my experimental implementation of  Zen To Done the productivity methodology by Leo Babauta.

As a reminder, the first habit I’ve decided to implement is to define every morning the 3 Most Important Topics (MITs) I want / need / commit to achieve during the day.

During week #1, the success rate has been 52 % (11/21) , during week #2, it has been 47% (9/19).

Here’re the results of week #3 :

 

  • 3 MITs for the week : Did I defined 3 MITs  ? :  YES,  How many did I achieve : 0/3
  •  Day 1 (January 30th) : Did I defined 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve :0/3
  • Day 2  (January 31st) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : YES, How many did I achieve : 1/3
  • Day 3 (February 1st) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : NO
  • Day 4 (February 2nd) :Did I define 3 MITs ? : NO
  • Day 5 (February 3rd) : Did I define 3 MITs ? : NO
  • Total : I’ve defined the MITs 2 times instead of 5, I’ve achieved  1/18.

 What are  my conclusions ?

  • 1/18  is a very poor result.
  • In fact during this week I did not use ZTD. I did not take time to define 3 MITs everyday.
  • By the way, I did achieve a lot of things during this week but without planning them.
  • As a consequence, my achievements are not the most important ones, so it’s not a so good result.
  • I need to improve my routine when I’m travelling to make sure I define the 3 MITs before starting my day

For the new coming week, my objective is to continue the implementation of this new habit, with a better result (which will not be so difficult)  !
