Google Reader Revisited

I faintly remember having used google reader briefly, a few years back, when i first discovered it. I wasn’t much impressed with it then. But thankfully i stumbled upon it again, and now i’m wondering how did i ever live without it.

Clearly, Knowledge is Power. Knowlege empowers us by broadening our horizon and opening up endless possibilities…

After spending over a day playing around with endless RSS feeds and themes, i have set up a god collection of Sources for News (till now i was using only Google News), Videos, Podcasts and even Gmail (which is not accessible in my office, but now i can access it as RSS).

One thing that left me bittr is the “Note to Reader” Bookmarklet which was supposedly an awesome feature to bookmark any web page (sort of like Read It Later) to Reader, but it had been disontiued and after trying for an Hour to find some workaround, i still had no luck with it.

Currently i’m using Google Bookmark and Google Tasks to achieve the  Read It Later functionality, which is satisfactory bt not ideal…

All in All, Google Reader is amazing

Export Google Calendar to Excel

Recetly i’ve started logging all that i do in google calendar, so that i can keep track of every min of every day 24X7. I’ve been so particular about this log that any blank time period on my calendar now can only be attributed to an encounter of the Fourth ind.

Now to analyze this data, for instance, to see how much time i send sleeping on avg, i need to export it to excel. For this i have found the following tools to be useful :
