Bookmark Your Tag Set

Tagaabo is especially useful when combined with your browser's bookmarks.
I have a set of bookmarks for Tagaabo pages that I frequently visit and check.
For example, when I'd like to see what I need to do today,
I just click my browser's bookmark for the following Tagaabo page:


If you look up at the url for a page with any tag combination in Tagaabo, you can see that tag names like "todo" are included in the URL.
And that means that if you bookmark that url, the bookmark will pull up the page with the combination of tags and other conditions (like view type--Lifelog or Calendar), that you want to view.

Here are some other useful bookmarks I have:

Calendar of events

Work related todo list. Sorry for no screenshot, but you got the idea.

Unsolved questions

Tasks I have completed

Also, this entry shows sets of bookmarks that are useful in implementing GTD on Tagaabo.

If you have been using Tagaabo for a while, you may already have some useful bookmarks with your own original tag combinations.
If you have such bookmarks, please share them with us.

Tagaabo covered by Czech GTD website

Just found this nice article on Tagaabo in Czech.


Translation by Google Translate

It seems that the site is run by the publisher of David Allen's "Getting Things Done" in Czech.
What pleased us most was that Tagaabo was introduced as an embodiment of "less is more" philosophy.
You know what? That is exactly what we are trying to be!
Thank you for the appreciation, Tomáš!

Danger tag!

Sometimes you find danger where you least expect it.
I recently stumbled across an unexpected situation while I was programming.

So when I program, I prefer to have a dark blue background for my editor because the traditional white background is too bright for me.

I was staring at a particular line of code on the dark blue background, lost in thought.
Next to my nice dark blue editor window however, there was a browser window that opened a page with a bright white background.

Later, when I looked away from my monitor, I noticed that part of my vision was lost!
It appears that my iris' were wide open because they were adjusted to the dark background of the editor, and the white light in the periferal screen was too strong and actually damaged my retinas.
Fortunately, my vision recovered after about an hour, but I was extremely worried.

When I have this kind of negative experience, I record it in Tagaabo with a "danger" tag.
That way I can build up my "danger" database, so that I can avoid these type of situations in the future.

By the way, there is a Japanese web site called "the failure knowledge database".
It is a database of failures or accidents which has been compiled in order to help people avoid making the same mistakes.
This page is in Japansese. But even if you don't speak Japanse, the illustrations can make sense.
