Most people don’t have any reasons to encrypt their communication with other people. There is no famous tool yet with which even non-IT people can just enable/disable encryption with one click. For this reason, only some geeks know how to encrypt a message. Let’s see how it works on Ubuntu Desktop:

Great tools which help thinking

If you end up here on this old sub-domain, please head over to niceandfocused.com.

Being in school, university or similar there are always some mid-term goals we’re trying to reach. When we finally finish and start our working life there is suddenly little time to think about life and goals. We might find ourself so distracted by daily life that it gets challenging to find and follow our goals. I’m collecting tools which help me to “manage thoughts”:

  • Workflowy.com – relativ simple cloud notepad tool, allows structured lists, great for managing thoughts on different matters which follow you throughout your life
  • Trello.com – one of many KANBAN-style task managing tools, ok for TODOs
  • exobrain.co – incredible minimalistic and beautiful mind-mapping tool, great for “thinking”         *update: not using this anymore (right now)*

In order to share and store sensitive data of my startup company I was searching for a cloud storage solution which offers at least 5 GB of storage for free, the data should be client-sided encrypted (which means that there is no chance for the cloud provider to access your data) and as we are using Windows 10, Ubuntu 16.04 and Mac OS in the company there must be a good client program for all of them. (Directly to: How to setup)

Negative mood

If you end up here on this old sub-domain, please head over to niceandfocused.com.

No matter how much I improve my daily routines and how good my attitude is, I eventually end up at those moody days where everything seems to be crappy and stupid. I wonder if there is a personal recipe for how to get back to this positive thinking state in which I have so much more energy and, thus, get much more things done, enjoying everything?
