Some tools you should not leave home without

In no specific order:

  • After years of searching for hierarchical to-do list managers, frustrating outline and OPML editors, buggy project trackers I found this - ToDoList. It's clean, free (as in speech) and surprisingly, has really nice features
  • yWork's brilliant diagram editor - Graphity or it's thick client cousin - yEd 
  • XMind for mind mapping and brainstorming
  • A decent screen capture and annotation tool - Screenpresso
  • Notepad++, naturally

Hiking up Mission Peak

The best time of the year to go there - Spring. Preferably, to watch the sun rise or sun set.

View of Bay Area from Mission Peak - yes that's where we started
