Google Docs Shortcut That You'll Thank Me For

Okay, so here's a little trick that's worth coming out of blogging retirement for! 

It seems that Google purchased the top level domain (TLD) .new some time ago. So what? Well they've just made life a little easier if you are a Google docs, sheets, or slides user (maybe more). 

You'll love this: 

When in the Chrome browser and signed into your Google account type one of the following in the address bar -,, or The result is you'll be directed to... a new Google doc, sheets, or slides page saving you 4 clicks (Google apps, Drive, New, Docs). 

You're welcome.

I 💘 Cats, Robots and Neural Networks

I'm a cat guy, I've had more than a couple Roombas (Roombai?), and I know a little about Neural Networks so when I saw this it was like the whole peanut butter meets chocolate thing!

A year of Wired and a YubiKey 4 for $21

As a long time fan of Wired magazine and a former subscriber I was a little bummed a while back when had gone to a paywall model. That is, I was bummed until I visited the site this morning and learned that I could get a year of Wired, access behind the paywall, and a limited-edition WIRED branded YubiKey 4 for $10 Canadian + $10 shipping and tax. 

When you consider that a YubiKey 4 is being offered on for $53.00 that's a heck of a deal! What does a YubiKey 4 do for you?

  • Strong two-factor hardware based authentication
  • Easy and fast authentication with a single touch
  • Reduces IT operational costs
  • Multiprotocol support on a single key
  • Crush-resistant and waterproof
  • Choice of USB-A and USB-C form factors
  • Made in the USA & Sweden

Basically, it's a small USB dongle that you insert into your PC and use to login to websites. It provides you with the 2 factor authentication that security experts have been urging you to use for years!
