March is in like a windy, sunny, snowy, balmy, dreary, hot, wet, lamb / lion combo. 2 days into the month, and we are the weather is typical schizophrenic late Winter early Spring Dayton, Ohio fun.

Stop Emailing Me! – Are you constantly receiving unwanted email messages, but finding that you are either too lazy or busy to go through the process of unsubscribing? Instead of repeatedly deleting these annoyances only to have them resurface again tomorrow, try out unsubsrcibr – a free service that will scan your gmail inbox for unwanted subscription emails and give you the ability to one click opt out of any and all of them in a matter of seconds. The free version will scan the last 5 days of email you’ve received. It is a great way to get rid of those email messages you don’t want so that you have a little extra time to focus on those you actually do want. I have a hunch one of my colleagues is going to love this.
