Start off the New Year by cleaning up your hard disk

I was running disasterously low of disk space. In search of a good / free tool to help me out. I found this: CCleaner. It did a great job, freeing up almost 2 GB of disk space. Whew! If you find yourself in the same predicament, consider this tool.

Want to live in a small house? Know about the restrictions on the land you want to place it

As you can see from this post, Tiny house = affordable house « view from the greg, some communities place a lower limit as to how small a place you can put on property in that district. If your dream is to build a tiny home likes the ones featured at tinyhousedesign.com  in such a district,  you might find your dreams and reality don’t match up. So please investigate further before you sink your money into a place.

your.flowingdata + twitter = a good way to help you track your New Year’s Resolutions

You’ve made your New Year’s Resolutions: now it’s time to track them. Well, if you are looking for a good way to track your new year’s resolutions and you already use twitter, I recommend you check out: your.flowingdata / Quick Start Guide. This guide will show you how easy it is to do this using this site. (I am starting to sound like a bad infomercial). For example, if you want to track weight loss or amount of cigarettes cut back on or even the amount of sleep you are getting or the amount of time you exercised, you can track it here in seconds.

It’s a good tool, and it’s been around for awhile. Give it a try. The visualizations will help give you a better sense of your progress. Hey, every little bit helps.
