Searching Gmail for attachments, date ranges and more


So if you're like me you generally keep way too much email in your gmail account. Usually it's a good thing when your looking for that email from two years ago that you sent to your friend with a file attachment that you suddenly want to find again. This got me to thinking that perhaps I should make a collection of the gmail search features that I use fairly regularly and put them into one place, because maybe someone else will find it helpful.

Google the SiriusXM Killer?


Today in my inbox is an email from Google about the new Play music Service apparently called "Google Play Music All Access".

Google Adsense Suspended


It's not very often that I will say anything negative against Google. In fact I use a slew of their "free" offerings ranging from GMail to Adsense to Webmaster Tools to Blogger to Reader to Drive to Talk to... well you get the point. Not long ago osTicket released a new version, and as most of you know I'm a fairly avid supporter or and member of the osTicket community and have been for several years... This of course means that my site got a slew of traffic and much of it from osticket.com.
