Lifehacker by Gina Trapani


Description : The book will contain an introduction, 8 sections and a conclusion. Each section will begin by describing an overarching principle of the lifehacker, and then segue into concrete applications of that guideline offering 103 useful life hacks for getting things done faster online and off. Each individual software-related hack will be a detailed, step-by-step how-to for setting up and using the solution. All software-related hacks will employ freely-available applications with a focus on Windows users. Mac equivalents will be included. Wherever possible, free web applications and platform-agnostic software will be used. Most but not all hacks will be software-related. Non-software related hacks will be written in a helpful, suggestive, conversational tone and include suggestions for as many life circumstances as possible. Each hack will include detailed screenshots and sidebars with additional tips, case studies and quotes throughout. Sample: Method 2: Block the time-wasting sites entirely: Alternately, you can make it hard to visit time-sucking sites, which forces yourself to stop and think, “Do I really have time to do this right now?” Set your computer to block those URLs and make yourself unblock them each time you want to visit. One way to do this is to tell your computer that these sites live on your hard drive - which obviously they don’t - and get a “Server not found” error when your fingers impulsively type out that tempting URL. Here’s how: Using Notepad or some other text editor, open the file named “hosts”, which is located in the following directory: Windows XP = C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC Windows 2K = C:\WINNT\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC Windows 98\ME = C:\WINDOWS Add the following on its own line in the hosts file, using the sites that apply to you: metafilter.com flickr.com Save and quit.
