Running Out of Space?
The real question is: how do you know before it's too late and email to you starts bouncing?
If you're a Hotmail/Outlook.com user, it's not difficult to find, just not obvious.
This week's featured article, How Full Is My Hotmail Account?, has the magic incantation.
Also this week:
- Another day, another breach? What to do.
- My Wi-Fi sucked while I was camping -- what I did about it.
- Clearing cookies for just one site is less painful than clearing for all.
As always, links below.
This week we Gary and I talked about Twitter alternatives. There are several. I'm investing a little time in one, but there's a huge problem with all alternatives that makes me less than hopeful. I also talk a bit about a couple of tech problems I had while travelling a couple of weeks ago.
There's more, of course, over at: TEH 163: New social media? Traveling tech disasters. Check your Two Factor..
(Head's up: looks like we'll be off the next two weeks.)
Have a great week!
