I am a software developer, working primarily in C# / .NET. I have been doing this for about six years.

Prior to that I worked in various technology positions, with strong experience in system / network administration, and some experience in a variety of programming languages.

I am an avid user of technology tools, particularly fond of open source, freely available, or just anything that is high quality and a great value.

comment Can I easily search for starred / flagged messages across all folders in Yahoo Mail?
Thanks for the detailed research, this pulls together all the pieces I was looking for. Now just trying to find whether there is a way to save the search for quick access but even if not this is a very handle tip and seems to search correctly across all folders.

comment Can I easily search for starred / flagged messages across all folders in Yahoo Mail?
Thank you for the tip, but it seems like this will only allow me to find the starred messages in one folder at a time. I was looking for a way to have a single unified view of all starred messages in all folders.

comment How to link or share an email in Gmail?
I am guessing from your question that forwarding the email thread is not an option, but I'm not sure why... Can you clarify why you wouldn't just forward the email?

comment Can I resize an image (Drawing file) in Google Drive?
Thank you for the suggestion. I also found that if I do a Select All on the image in Google Drive it gives me grabber arrows that I can use to resize. But it's difficult to get a precise size since there is no pixel count.

comment What is your experience with FreshBooks?
I'm also considering Freshbooks but the drawback I see right now (for our case) is that there does not seem to be a good way to download transactions from the bank. There appear to be addon applications which do this, but it seems like then you are basically using someone else for your download service (on a separate website) and just pulling over information from Freshbooks, but it doesn't seem to be an integrated service? Any tips there appreciated!

comment Which versions of the PDF standard does Google Docs support?
Do you have any way to produce a PDF 1.7 document using a different tool, as a test? Maybe it is possible there is something about the way that PHP TCPDF is producing the document which is causing the Docs Viewer to choke?

Do you have any link to where you heard this? Or was it word-of-mouth?

comment Can I automatically add related posts to my posts on Wordpress.com?
Yes, I've used this on a self-hosted Wordpress site, but my question is about a Wordpress.com hosted site. I don't believe I have the ability to install that plugin, right?

comment Edit files with Google Docs but store them locally in home folder
I don't think Google Drive supports offline access on all operating systems yet. But when it does, I think it might meet most of your requirements? What do you think?

comment Hide a page from the navigation menu on blog hosted on Wordpress.com
Just what I was looking for. And I think that the info is not really specific to the Twenty Eleven theme, right? I might edit the question to make it more general so it applies to any theme hosted on Wordpress.com. Let me know if you know of any reason why that would not make sense.

comment Is there any email marketing web application that allows the absence of a physical address in the email?
For the newsletters from PayPal, I'm curious what the "primary purpose" seems to be - i.e., by looking at just the subject line or how most of the content is focused. This link gives guidance to businesses on the CAN-SPAM law, and it differentiates between email which is primarily selling a commercial product/service vs. other types. business.ftc.gov/documents/…

comment Is there a way to delete multiple Picasa Web Albums in one operation?
Sorry... In Picasa 3, the feature to delete empty web albums is found at Tools | Experimental | Delete Empty Web Albums (productforums.google.com/forum/#!category-topic/picasa/…). I have used this feature many times.

The Picasa application has a feature that will allow you to delete all empty albums in one step.

comment Can I easily search for starred / flagged messages across all folders in Yahoo Mail?
No technical reasons for the preference. One is just habit and reluctance to switch when the perceived reason for the switch is not significant. Beyond that, I'll say that I've spoke to several people who just don't like the UI of Gmail. I can't say I understand why - just personal preference.

comment How to modify filters in gmail
I agree with @Sarah. These steps work as described for me. The filter ends up in the "Has the words" box. If yours is changing for some reason in an odd way, try just typing "from:amy OR to:amy" into the "Has the words" box at that point in the Create Filter wizard. I think that may help.

comment Can I easily search for starred / flagged messages across all folders in Yahoo Mail?
Thank you. We are using Yahoo Plus and don't see the functionality there (at least not anyplace obvious). I'm actually helping a user who prefers Yahoo Mail over Gmail for various other reasons, so switching to Gmail is not a desirable solution in this case. Thanks again for the feedback!
