… I thought I would introduce me. My name is Tim (as the byline vaguely suggests) and I’ll be posting on a regular basis. My tech obsessions have no known bounds so you’ll see stuff from every category from me. I particularly love talking about a cool new web service or things like what the world will be like when Google has everything ever written/recorded/discussed in its databases (this actually doesn’t scare me too much – feel free to tell me I’m nuts).
I pre-apologize for the wordy posts – I just like to get it all in there, you know? Cover my bases. My humor can be a little dry and nerdy too so poke fun at will!
And I too have a little web-based service that you may have never heard of, or may have forgotten about: Time Cave. Anyone remember this one? Here’s the gist of the free service:
The idea is simple: drop an email message into Time Cave and tell it when to come out. It’ll stay there for as long as you’d like, within reason. (We wouldn’t want stalactites to dissolve it.) So for days, weeks, months, or even years, Time Cave will hold onto your message. Once the message’s time comes, it’s speedily sent on its way back toward you (or whomever you addressed it to).
Use it as a free reminder service or just to send your future self a kind note. Want to make sure you don’t forget something, whether it’s an appointment or an ideal? Time Cave can help.
I dropped a message in about 3 or 4 years ago but have since changed my email countless times so I have no idea if they stuck to their promise. I just today scheduled an email to myself for June 15th, 2010. I figure this is a good long term test.
I’ll comment on this post when I get the message [hey, you never know] so be sure to bookmark this page if you don’t think you’ll remember to check back. Talk to you in 4 years…
