Migrating Wunderlist to Trello
As Wunderlist is sadly shutting down, I decided that I would move before I was pushed - so after some evaluation of my uses (shared lists primarily, and nothing that would end up in OmniFocus) I decided on Trello. They have optional Trello Gold which means I can pay them and make them more likely to stick around - ideal!
I’ve been using OmniFocus ask my task manager for a good few years now, and I frequently like to search out articles about how other people use it to glean some ideas - and I frequently pick up tips.

Charging Tech While Travelling
Whenever you’re on the go you always seem to end up needing to charge more gadgets simultaneously than at home - or at least you do if you’re me. Along with the standard devices there are backup battery packs, and of course, if there are any long journeys you want everything fully charged before you depart! One handy little thing I’ve been carrying in my travel bag for over a year now is the AUKEY 5-Port USB Charger. As the name implies it has 5 ports, and each of them should charger at 10A (the power of the old iPad chargers). While it’s not perfect - it certainly won’t charge my massive 12.9” iPad Pro in a hurry, it’s more than good enough for nearly everything else. I can charge my phone, both iPads, headphones and a battery pack simultaneously - and if I plug in the behemoth of the iPad Pro overnight it’ll be 100% come morning too.
Tracking Exchange Rates When Travelling
I’ve recently been travelling a lot (which as my family is well aware, is a normal state!) and wanted to be able to easily keep track of the exchange rate, plus be able to calculate the prices including tax - as well as find out how much it would be in my normal currency.
Podcast Appearance - The Hitchhiker's guide to the Plannerverse
This week I was a guest on the Philofaxy podcast, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Plannerverse - Episode 51. I had a great time talking to Steve (as always!), as we delved into how I plan and my systems.
Workflow: What’s the weather like today?
I’ve been exploring APIs quite a bit recently and came across the Dark Sky API (free for up to 1000 calls a day). The possibilities with this API, like most, are many - and my immediate thought was I could use it to tell me at the start of the day what the weather will be like for the day - regardless of where I am.
