Tim's Tip of the Day

Every time you create or use a piece of paper (document) you are going to have to do something with it. Therefore the wise man can save himself time by finding ways to use his computer to replace paper based tasks. We have known this axium for more than a decade but persist in "hardcopy" the time has come to get over it.
