Instrument software words of wisdom

Instrument software examples of Information Management and Getting Things Done:

“Obviously, users who are going to measure hundreds of trials against numerous standards would do well to name the files and folders they create in a manner that allows for easy identification of archived files.  We suggest that you develop file and folder naming conventions, write them down, and apply them every time you open and save a new file.”


“Thinking about Macros – Creating a successful macro entails a bit of forethought.  You will want to answer some or all of these questions:

  • What task do you want to accomplish?
  • What steps are involved in  accomplishing the task?
  • How should the steps be sequenced?
  • What steps must be repeated?
  • How do the steps that must be accomplished match with built in commands?
  • What is the simplest way to get the job done?”

Sounds like a recipe for life.  In a really geeky sort of way.

Wikis for organizing things

A discussion at Web Worker Daily has some good ideas and links for using wikis to keep things organized. One of the comments espoused pen and paper. I am still working well with my Excel Pocketmod but I plan to follow up and take a look at the other hosted wiki options mentioned.
