Well sort of.
I don’t really bother to prune my emails so one of my mailboxes has in excess of 14,000 mails, I really don’t need them but they are no hassle, they just sit there talking among themselves so i leave them alone.
However what has started to bug me is my web bookmarks and how to manage them. I have just been clearing them out a bit as unlike emails which can be useful even from years ago where you want a date or a name or an address. But bookmarks, especially for me, seem to date very quickly and i saw to my horror (yeah well ok perhaps not) that i still had IE imports in them and it must be 10 years since i had an IE browser.
I used to add my bookmarks in subject order. So Programming then JS then Frameworks etc. But i then had to classify them and where to graphics go, i mean i use them in Art and i also use them in Programming so i duplicate and could not find them anyway.
So now i add a new folder each month and just add all the bookmarks unclassified into this bucket on the basis that i can sort of vaguely remember that it was a couple of months ago that i looked at this subject so maybe November 2013? But no my sense of timing is out by either weeks or months.
So how do you manage your bookmarks. Any tips. tricks, wrinkles, apps in the offing.
Offing by the way is the most distant part of the sea in view at any one time.
