I am two days late, but never mind. Lifehacker, the fabulous site with everyday tips and downloads for getting things done, had its first post on 31st Jan 2005. What a phenomenal success it has achieved in these four years!
I am especially thankful to Gina Trapani, the blog’s founding editor, for introducing me to Cygwin and the todo.sh. She used to make frequent posts but has been writing only a weekly column on the blog these days. She released a book, Upgrade Your Life: The Lifehacker Guide to Working Smarter, Faster, Better, which consists of all the best hacks from Lifehacker.com’s archives, and her personal manifesto on working more efficiently in the digital age. Check out the official web site of Upgrade Your Life to browse the table of contents and download a sample chapter.
Happy birthday, Lifehacker! Many happy returns of the day. I am a regular visitor of Lifehacker, a big user of Cygwin, and I hope that the four-hour-long course that I did today on time management nudges me enough to become a daily user of todo.sh.
In this spirit, dear readers, here is the ultimate list of free Windows software from Microsoft. Enjoy.
