When you're looking at a Web page on Chrome and want to see if Google has an older cached version of the site, simply add "cache:" in front of the current URL. For example, if you were looking at www.jfabrisbane.com, you would want to put:

Google also tells you when the cache is from - it's along the top of the page in a gray information bar.
It makes no difference how many dots you include in your Gmail address or how you capitalize it. To put it in perspective, every one of the following emails will end up in the same Gmail account’s inbox:
The dots and capitalization can help make the Gmail address easier to read for humans, but the Google Gmail servers don’t even notice them.

You can bypass all the other floors the elevator might stop at and go straight to the floor you need by following these steps.
1. Press and hold the "Close Door" button and KEEP HOLDING IT.
2. Once the doors are closed (still keep holding the "Close Door" button) press and KEEP HOLDING the floor button you need - you are now holding two buttons.
3. Once the elevator starts moving, you can release both buttons. You will go directly to the floor you need without any stops.
All GPS tracking devices need to be able to receive at least three GPS satellite signals that are strong enough for the device to calculate its exact location.
The stronger the satellite signals the better, so it is critical to place the device where satellite signals can easily reach the device. Yes, satellite signals can bounce around inside the car or even off a road surface to places underneath the actual vehicle, but unless you have the time to do a some testing to see how a location will work, the following options will very likely work straight away with little placement time.
Inside the car
Satellite signals will not penetrate metal, but they will easily penetrate glass, plastics and particle timber products. The ideal position inside a vehicle is somewhere underneath the front or rear windscreen. Under the front dash or underneath the rear parcel tray on a sedan are ideal locations.
The driver of a vehicle might use the glove box, but if its design is such that you can't easily see the top inside of the glove box, then that might be a good location to Velcro a small GPS tracker. Alternatively, place the unit somewhere behind the front centre consul.
Most rear parcel trays are easily accessed via the boot / trunk of the car. The parcel tray will likely be a criss-cross of metal bracing with a fibreboard and carpet top. If you can place the unit between that metal bracing and the parcel tray, the satellite signals will easily penetrate the fibreboard, carpet and glass above it.
Although not ideal, another possible location is under the front passenger seat of a car. Place the unit as close to the front of the seat and the windscreen as possible.
Outside the car
Most newer cars these days have a plastic or fibre-glass cover over the metal framework of the front and rear bumpers and this is the most preferred location . You will need to secure the unit by first placing it in a case with a strong magnet or with tape, zip-ties, etc. Be sure to make sure the unit's inbuilt antennae is facing upwards and that the unit is not placed underneath the metal bumper framework.
GPS trackers with an external antenna lead can be placed almost anywhere as long as the actual antenna is placed somewhere it will receive strong satellite signals.

Have you ever wanted to send confidential information within your work environment, to family or friends, but were afraid to do so over the internet, because some malicious hacker could be spying on you?
Privnote is a free web based service that allows you to send top secret notes over the internet. It's fast, easy, and requires no password or user registration at all.
Just write your note, and you'll get a link. Then you copy and paste that link into an email (or instant message) that you send to the person who you want to read the note. When that person clicks the link for the first time, they will see the note in their browser and the note will automatically self-destruct; which means no one (even that very same person) can read the note again. The link won't work anymore.
You can optionally choose to be notified when your note is read by leaving your email and a reference for the note.
With Gmail, you can add a +word to the end of your email address. So, if your email is firstname.lastname@example.org, you can use email@example.com and that will also be delivered to the same email address.
You can then also set up a filter based on the +xyz keyword to direct the incoming email wherever you want and bypass the inbox.
The +word feature is also useful for tracking emails and seeing who is selling your email address.
