I think most Stoic advice on procrastination is unhelpful, because, like nearly everyone else, Stoics tend to view procrastination as a character flaw (laziness), or as evidence of a lack of motivation or discipline, to be addressed primarily through willpower.
But recently, psychologists have developed a more helpful theory: procrastination is a coping mechanism for strong negative emotions induced by a task. Essentially, we avoid that which makes us uncomfortable. The solution, according to this theory, is to develop better emotion regulation skills, such as distress tolerance. (Here's a decent non-paywalled article on the idea.)
If you think of procrastination this way, then Stoicism has a lot to offer, because Stoicism 101 is dealing with negative emotions.
>If there is any external thing that causes you distress, it is not the thing itself that troubles you, but your own judgement about it. And this you have the power to eliminate now.
>-- Marcus Aurelius
Online searching is like any skill, you just have to learn how to do it. I used search engine cheat sheets when I started seriously combing the web.
It takes some getting used to but it's truly helpful when you can cut out search terms to help tone down the scope of your search.
Here's my recommendation: Spin up some quick landing pages using modern software, like Shopify (for e-commerce), Instapage (for lead forms, coupon entry, etc.), Wyng.com (for promotions, quizzes, sweepstakes, etc.). You can get a lot done in a couple of days. Use Zapier.com if you need to connect things to your existing CRMs, systems from these sites - it's also easy for a non-dev to use.
1) You can control all aspects of these things in marketing, barely needing IT.
2) You can have less stress knowing you have at least something to drive traffic to.
3) Even if you're maybe going to have something formal ready for the date, building these out will teach you what you want and don't want from landing pages.
I see some internet idiots have joined in on this hilarious post. It's okay, though. I Googled for you.
>Inspect Elements lets you tweak the appearance and content of a web page, by adding temporary edits to the site's CSS and HTML files. Once you close or reload the page, your changes will be gone; you'll only see the changes on your computer and aren't actually editing the real website itself.
I've always liked the post Build Yourself a Redux as the best example of a "build a mini Redux" genre.
Also, our new "Redux Fundamentals" core docs tutorial walks through the underlying concepts and how to use Redux logic from the ground up, and I'd encourage folks to read through it. Among other things, it shows both a mini working version of a Redux store in about 25 lines, and how UI layers like React-Redux handle subscribing to the store and updating the UI.
1) Log into your bank on a laptop/PC before you have a girl over
2) Edit the text of the site to make it appear you're loaded ($50k in chequing, $100k savings, $100k limit credit card(s), something like that, other wealth in the form of stocks, additional accounts, investments, property, etc. are assumed)
3) Leave it open long enough that it would ask for a password if you tried to go to another page
4) When the girl shows, after a while, ask her to put some music on, from the computer in the next room, you just have to go brush and floss or some excuse.
5) She'll see the bank open and likely snoop
6) Check for attitude change when you return

CTO of a tech company called Zapier -- we literally depend on net neutrality to keep a healthy partner platform going with nearly 1000 different services (we are sort of like "legos for the internet" I suppose). Without net neutrality, there would be so much less diversity and competition that you'd never even have the problem we're solving (integrating your favorite services together) -- you'd have a completely different problem (none of your favorite services would exist).
We support net neutrality, we're proud to be a participant! https://www.battleforthenet.com/july12/#participants https://zapier.com/
There is a solution for this problem:
Just remove the quotes and add that to the end of your searches. The results will omit anything that is from Pinterest.
There are a lot of other advanced options, so look them up if you want. Here’s a cheatsheet I found online: Advanced Google Search Cheatsheet
Hope this helps!
You could probably utilize Zapier and combine it with your email or have it send SMS messages. I believe you can get a free account that only has a few integrations:
For anyone using Google Chrome, you can add Wiktionary as a custom search engine
This lets you type
wt <tab> word and it'll search Wiktionary
The string to use is:
Maybe you could try using apps/extensions commonly used for productivity to help you avoid those sites? https://zapier.com/blog/stay-focused-avoid-distractions/
The thing to remember is that the blackpill itself is one giant cope. Guys realise that getting a girlfriend generally takes effort and risk (and yes even more so if you're not conventionally attractive). So they use the blackpill as a cope when they avoid taking the risks or putting in the effort.
I'm a university web director. Our central website could easily be described as "large but simple" - thousands of pages, lots of content editors across campus, but for the most part it isn't anything fancy in terms of functionality. The most complicated part is access control/workflow. This central site is built with Drupal.
For the most part, it's been great. There are some things that I'll do differently whenever we get around to a redesign, which is when I'll take the opportunity to rebuild the site from the ground up (probably in Drupal 8):
Use the Context module instead of blocks. On a large site, you wind up with hundreds of blocks, and it becomes a nightmare to manage (as well as a major performance drag... in D6 anyway).
Use something other TAC for access control. Stupid, stupid TAC.
Don't ever fall behind on security updates, even by a day. I learned that lesson the hard way during Drupalgate. Now I've got a Zap set up that blows up my phone, HipChat rooms, and everything else I could think of as soon as a Drupal security update gets released.
Those are the biggest things that come to mind right now. Overall, I still think Drupal is an ideal platform for a large site.
For idle time apps, I think you'll come to find that most, if not all, are not really "productive" uses of time. Or at least, not in the way people often think. Podcasts, audio-books, and other passive consumption apps should be better thought of as entertainment. That's not a disparagement as they can help make tedious tasks (commuting) much more bearable, and consuming various media (books, music, movies) will make you more rounded as a person. But you shouldn't necessarily think of such things as being productive (unless consuming media is part of your job).
As for the second: there are lots of great apps to help automate parts of your workflow, assuming what you are doing is inherently computer-based:
Lastly, some apps are great for forming productive habits, usually by implementing one of the standard productivity systems like GTD or the pomodoro technique.
Todd's been writing some great posts lately on Redux and NgRX. Very well written material!
If anyone's interested, I also recommend a similar post called Build Yourself a Redux. It not only covers the core Redux store, but middleware and the React-Redux
connect function as well.
Beyond that, I recently put up a post with my list of suggested resources for learning Redux, and my React/Redux links list points to many additional tutorials and articles on Redux.
Actual Impostors don't get Impostor syndrome.
Remember that. You are doing everything right, no one actually knows wtf they are doing, all your put together friends feel the same way in varying degrees.
Also the inspect element trick - this one:
They can use it to alter tweets, pages. Then, take screenshot, easy. Also:
Exciting! I wonder if there will be integrated workflow automations to different applications? Something like Zapier, which can translate activity from one web app to another. It could help to reinforce the "Point.Click.Blockchain" slogan.
It's generating an RSS feed, that's perfectly normal. It's basically all of the HTML on the front page.
You can use this to create email alerts when a new post is created on the blog, with either IFTTT (https://ifttt.com/applets/147561p-rss-feed-to-email) or Zapier (https://zapier.com/zapbook/zaps/1441/get-rss-feed-updates-via-email/).
To be perfectly honest, the amount of money is a joke, especially since you don't specify what software you're running on the receiving end. $25 is probably enough to pay someone 15 mins to tell you what to do.
Or, you could use something like Zapier which has a ton of integrations already and you can configure it yourself.
This is not a bot. This is a script that runs periodically from crontab.
Looking through the code I also see that it's been hacked together, not even pulling the values from a common config. I've seen and I've made better youtube announcing bots than this script.
2/10, not worth a reddit post.
edit: you can also accomplish pretty much exactly the same behaviour on zapier except you don't need a server with php and cron permission. http://i.imgur.com/aWmeSOU.png
Use automate.io, and zapier.com to streamline a bunch of stuff too if you are pulling from multiple source. For example - I need to grab data from Intercom, Infusionsoft, ManyChat, FB Lead Forms all the time. Way easier if I automate tasks.
I'm not sure if you've heard of this company called Zapier, but they almost exclusively offer remote positions and do have some customer support-type roles that you would likely be qualified for. Good news is, the support they offer is chat/e-mail based, so no horrible phone calls!
Glassdoor occasionally comes out with lists on companies with remote positions (even those with non-technical roles), so be sure to look out for those, too.
I have 1 Zap for Evernote that IFTTT can't do, which is to create a new note every day with the current day/date as the title. Here's the link to it if you want to use it: https://zapier.com/zapbook/schedule/evernote/17725/schedule-every-day-to-evernote-create-note/
I have a notebook called "Timeline" that this saves the notes to, which I use as literally a timeline of things that go on in my life. In that notebook I also have IFTTT scripts that send my Foursquare check-ins to Evernote, a weather map of my area when it rains or snows, and I think a few other things I can't think of off the top of my head. My daily note with Zapier is essentially like a journal entry. I've gotten in the habit of making a note of as much stuff that happens as I can, just to help me remember what's gone on and when. More of a log of events, rather than like a diary I put my thoughts in or anything like that. It's come in handy several times being able to refer back to stuff that I wrote about in detail at the time but was later only able to recall a vague idea.
Depending on what route you want to go you can use something like this https://zapier.com/partner/embed/ to directly embed on your website.
It’s a workflow automation service. So if your site has an API you can tie it into the eco system of Zapier. Zapier will do all the translation on your behalf and let your app talk to any other service with an API. That can give your users access to 2k+ different apps like Gmail, Outlook, task management apps, ...
You could choose to embed particular app connections (your site -> gmail) and present that on your site for your users to use.

A good jumping off point for finding work-from-anywhere jobs is to check out sites who specialize in this kind of stuff, including Remote.co, WeWorkRemotely.com, Working Nomads, and FlexJobs.
There are also a number of companies that hire for these jobs. We recently put together a list of 'em (https://www.flexjobs.com/blog/post/companies-work-from-anywhere-jobs-right-now/). Zapier has a great list as well (https://zapier.com/blog/companies-hiring-remote-workers/).
Yes, it is a built-in feature to do multistep forms.
Did you bother to use the old googler?
What you're describing is out there. I work for a remote company that places high value on work life balance. We even work less than full-time for a good chunk of the year. There's a growing number of companies like this.
Here's a list with some companies I've heard good things about in terms of remote working.
I've worked remotely for three different tech companies so feel free to let me know if you have questions.

In order not to lose anything (like in this case where it was deleted), I used Zapier to create a trigger that sends new posts from Reddit to Gmail.
They're not really nice though. Trying to make website owner do IFTTT's work.
Zapier provides the same service, minus the crap.
You may want to check out Airtable, and Zapiers Gravity Forms and Airtable Integration. Airtable is likely the easiest way if you can't code or don't want to mess with SQL at all, and just want to curate your own database like a spreadsheet.
So i think I may have a way.
Signed up for a Zapier.com account, then used this integration on there.
"New Inbound Email" trigger. "Add to Buffer" action.
Follow the steps to create a unique email address, link to your Bufferapp account, pick your FB channel, edit your template, enable, test.
Has worked for me in my tests so far.
Yes this a common occurrence especially in the world of Teraform and CloudFormation.
With regards to Slack, this might be what you are looking for. https://zapier.com/apps/amazon-s3/integrations/slack
That said, a word of advice:
Keep in mind that you can run into race conditions when performing multiple bucket configurations at the same time. So add a wait/sleep function in your workflow to account for this.
Use AWS Config to ensure bucket config compliance when allowing users to create buckets. You don't want someone doing something they are not meant to.
You could try using Zapier, I believe they have both Connectwise and Xero integrations: https://zapier.com/apps/connectwise-manage/integrations
There are quite a few pretty fine companies that don't care which country you're at, so long as you are good worker and your computer and internet are sufficient.
For example, Zapier. If you're into automating computer stuff, Zapier is top of the line.
There was a kerfuffle with Pinboard awhile ago about changes to their API agreement, such as claiming ownership of all content sent through their service. So, they’re definitely monetizing the use of their service; Google probably treats them as another source of user data, especially since they can tie the apps you use to your Google account, for example.
Zapier is also a popular option, which has a premium option.
I'm going to quote the ~~worst~~ best mod here, /u/LackingAGoodName from this post: https://www.reddit.com/r/CODZombies/comments/4ed4bt/zetsubou_no_shima_trophies/

Also, OP's account is very new and inactive. AND, all of the Achievements here are based off of leaks via Gamecode and the image of the map itself.
You might be able to create a REST API using Kimono Labs or Firebase that uses Google Sheets as the storage layer and avoid some of the risks with accessing it directly.
If Indeed had an integration, it would be pretty easy to do. Looks like it's not there yet: https://zapier.com/apps/indeed/integrations
You could build a custom zap, but be warned, Zapier support for custom apps is basically nill. They just point you to their documentation and shrug their shoulders. Pretty limited documentation as well with very few real-world examples. I did a custom sendinblue zap and even though SendInBlue has a very well documented API with clear examples, they couldn't help at all. (Incidentally, SendInBlue developers were also useless and told me I couldn't do what I eventually figured out how to do lol)
If you got a zap to work, you could then use the Email by Zapier app to fire off from your new applicant trigger. Whatever fields are available to you from Indeed could be pushed into whatever systems you'd like.
If you want to continue using Mailerlite to power your newsletter but use Revue to collect subscribers directly via Twitter, you can connect the two with Zapier (a data sync tool).
This automates the process so that when a subscriber signs up via Twitter, their contact details are automatically pushed through to Mailerlite where you can run your welcome email and newsletters. So you don't have to use Revue for anything other than collecting new subscribers via Twitter.
And depending on the number of new subscribers you get each month, Zapier's free plan might cover you so it won't cost more to do.
One of our users u/robotgirll does something similar for her newsletter.
You could use an automated service like Zapier or Integromat.
It also looks like you could do something with Google apps/spreadsheet https://developers.google.com/workspace/solutions/content-signup

Your actions forward will work, seems like you're stumped on getting the data out of the course.
I would insert the form/survey as a web object in Articulate, then separately, use Zapier to automate what I want to do with the data.
Look into Zapier for your desktop. You can connect Google Sheets to a variety of input triggers and tell it to populate accordingly.

what are your thoughts on no-code connector systems like Zapier.com, hurt or help API developers?
> You don’t have to do XYZ that a Twitter VC philosopher urges you to do in a fortune-cookie-like tweet.
You gotta be thinking of Naval right? I really LOL'd when I read that. He can be kinda quirky sometimes.
Chances are you may have finished faster than you would have if you hadn't thought about working faster.
We can't finish a task if it requires more time to finish than we allocated for it. That's why in a company, Gannt charts and schedules may change even though the carefully tried to estimate the expected duration of a task.
Maybe that's why Parkinson's Law says work expands to fill the time available for completion. How much that may expand may be on how leisurely someone works and how much someone may allocate more time than a task actually needs to complete it.
A Zapier article talks about the Planning Fallacy.
This article is one of many that talks about project planning and time estimation. An important thing that planners can do is plan for unexpected events.
I could give myself 5 minutes to mow the lawn but I might not meet that allocated task duration. I could also estimate 1 hour when it might actually take 30 minutes. But I think I'd get a lot more done if I set a deadline of 5 minutes and tried to meet that unrealistic deadline. Companies try to set realistic timelines and adjust them if needed as life plays out.
The first article shows how the author miscalculated how much time it would take to paint rooms. One time he exceeded the allocated time. Another time he didn't give it enough time.
>The confidence that led to my unrealistic estimates actually has a name—the planning fallacy—and it's something we all occasionally suffer from when estimating how long tasks and projects will take us to complete.
You are charged for every successful step in your Zap, regardless of the complete Zap itself successfully completes or not.
>A Task is counted every time a Zap successfully moves data or takes action for you. For example, if your Zap has an action to create new Google Contacts, each contact that is created will use one Task.
Here's a link to a list of some apps that will block certain sites such as Youtube that you're spending the majority of your time on, if this is something you want to try out! https://zapier.com/blog/stay-focused-avoid-distractions/ You could also try setting a certain amount of time each day to use these apps (with a time limit) alternatively, for yourself later on down the road once you feel that your self control has gotten better. I am personally trying this out right now, basically just scheduling one hour of the day where I can be lazy and browse sites like Reddit or Youtube until said hour is up. That way, you don't feel as if you're missing out on as much in contrast to going cold turkey for example. I find that having a consistent night routine (at the same time each day) helps as well. I believe it's recommended to unplug from devices at least 1 hour before bed, so if you wanted to fall asleep by 11:30pm for example, you could unplug at 10, have an hour long night routine, then be in bed by 11, allowing yourself half an hour in bed to fall asleep so you're not stressing to fall asleep immediately after getting into bed. Of course, depending on how much time you have and what you're incorporating into your night routine, you'll have to adjust accordingly to your own schedule. Hope this helps!
Just get off-the-shelf app (plug and play) . These appointment related kind of website/apps too common and the solution is already there.
There’s free solutions , and subscription ones if you’re willing to pay for extra features.
Check out some ebooks put together by 3 very prominent 100% remote companies:
As a person who has been on a handful of hiring committees, I have a few suggestions.
First, less is more. When I have to read through dozens of resumes on top of my normal duties, I always appreciate a resume that is concise and targeted to the job being applied for. This means you can leave out any extra skills that aren't listed on the job application (unless ther are related).
Yes, I like the summary of skills at the top.
I agree that you should look for another resume template that doesn't have such a huge indent. For instance, your name should go at the top and then you can slide everything over. You might want to try using some fancy free software to format a resume:
That depends on what you are sending—is it policy changes, service updates, etc? That is probably more the job of a transactional mail service like SendGrid or MailGun.
If it is marketing, then yes—MailChimp. You could do a one time import to get caught up and then use a service like Zapier to automatically add new WordPress members. Just make sure that you get their permission first, otherwise you could get flagged as spam too often and MC will shutdown your account.
Zapier - Add Microsoft Office 365 and Google Calendar Events into my Todoist.

Todoist Shortcuts - Firefox Add-on and Chrome Extension to add a huge number of time-saving keyboard shortcuts to Todoist.
Like a more developer or ops centric Zapier? Who are the target customers?
As someone else already pointed, a library/framework for this would be easier do adopt. (eg Fabric already has something like this, but on a lower level)
You can use parseur.com , it's way faster. Few seconds at most.
Create a Parseur mailbox then use the zap template here: https://zapier.com/apps/parseur/integrations/salesforce
For now, I believe the best you could get is a Chrome Extension to add tasks to Things (making use of the Mail to Things feature). You could use the Zapier Push chrome extension to add tasks. You could get the same functionality by building a preset
mailto:... URI and using it as a Chrome custom search engine or bookmark or similar (let me know if you want further details on how to set this up). Again, all this would do is let you add tasks, but if that's sufficient, there are multiple ways to implement it.
I'm guessing you're looking for more than that, due to the request for a webapp. This could be a separate discussion on its own (and probably already has been), but has anyone ever worked on a system to have their copy of the Things 3 database (the Mac's local version) sync with a personal cloud version that could then be accessed anywhere?
Read-only would be safer at first, of course, as it could be a fragile system trying to write all sorts of updates back to the database, and if you're using Things on iOS devices it would require having a Mac always running and connected to ensure your personal database copy is up-to-date with changes from iOS.
This is all speculative at this point; I'd be interested to hear if others have looked into this possibility.
I’ve just recently switched to Things 3 and it’s amazing. I love using it and I’ve been more productive at work as a result of it.
I also use Due for things where I need to just be nagged to do them - it reminds you incessantly until you do. I use that for stuff like “shut the window before you go out” or “pack yoga bag” - stuff I don’t need to see until I need to be told to do it. Whereas I use Things to plan and prioritise work tasks, make lists of books to read and films to watch, etc.
OP, the best system is one you will actually use, that you find pleasing and soothing and which matches the way you think about things. You might need to try a few to find this. This might help: https://zapier.com/blog/choosing-a-todo-list-app/

Here is a list of time tracking apps: https://zapier.com/blog/best-time-tracking-apps/
Freelancers and agencies use them a lot to keep track of how much to bill clients.
Personally, I use Amazing Marvin to track my time. It also helps with just getting things done and has some other neat features to help you achieve a balance in life (like time blocking).
This still seems fake to me. You can modify whatever website you want. Try it yourself. The video is bullshit. He said he refreshed the page, but there's no proof of that. He simply grabbed the fake image location, slammed it in there, and made it link to the new url. This is really easy to do in about a minute. Don't trust screencaps, or videos where he doesn't actually load a page. Even then, there are pretty easy ways to just copy the website source code and make it look like you're loading into a real website, when it's actually a local copy of the website.
IFTTT is incredible. Check out Zapier for even more control. Commercially supported too. I worry that IFTTT will disappear because they aren't making enough money.
Whatever you use, automation is awesome.
Wish I could post this on r/programmerhumor but there's just too much meat.

Co-founder/CTO here - we just launched this today - it probably represents the biggest and most exciting update to Zapier since we started in 2011.
If you use any SaaS or web apps - you should really check out Zapier. Google Sheets, Gmail, Slack, Trello, Todoist, Salesforce (or any other CRM) are all represented and you can build your own workflow from all the steps.
Just in case it isn't really clear how you might use it - check out a big list of real world examples https://zapier.com/blog/workflow-automation-examples/.
I'll be around all day - happy to answer any questions!
Depending on what you're selling, consider which channel will work best and give it your all for 90 days. A good place to start when looking at the channels available is the book "Traction" by Gabriel Weinberg and Justin Mares - http://tractionbook.com/ - They're working on a re-release, but in the meantime, you can find an overview of the channels here: https://zapier.com/blog/acquire-customers/
As a B2B service, you have limitless opportunities to team up with other B2B services to increase your value proposition. Choose these carefully, and when you've chosen them, make the most of them.
I've written about that on our blog: https://zapier.com/blog/marketing-app-integrations/
But this talk, titled "Distribution FTW: 10 Things I Learned about Successful Product Partnerships," by HelloSign CEO Joseph Walla is gold - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ibLZNVbwiDQ
None of these services are intended to ~~easily~~ connect with a database.
If you have the technical skills necessary, you're probably capable of creating and finding hosting for your own non drag-and-drop website.
That being said, there's a connector for Firebase and Squarespace that might fit your needs: https://zapier.com/zapbook/firebase/squarespace/
Co-founder of Zapier here -- you should take a look at our platform (https://zapier.com/developer). It'd likely take months to build that many solid integrations (and adds a lot of maintenance overhead). You get them all out of the box by building an app on Zapier and you only have to maintain your own app :)
Zapier co-founder here; love seeing excitement like this. :) Shoot me an email sometime () I want to say thanks!
We have a relatively open platform anyone can add apps to. Notivo seems like it would be an awesome fit. Details here: https://zapier.com/developer
Either way, good luck with Notivo. The search widget on the homepage got me very excited.
Zapier co-founder here, we (literally) just added Pinboard so you might give this a try:

Give it a go and let me know what you think!
From what I have found with previous jobs this is still a tricky area. The system you are looking for is called an ERP, Enterprise Resource Planning. This accounts for all your inventory and sales. Think of it as a bigger & stronger Quickbooks. The problem is ERP software isn't cheap and on top of that it almost never connects directly with your store front. This means if you are managing inventory out of your ERP you still need to some how have it update your website. Company's will often make plugins to have your ecommerce site connect with a Quickbooks or Sage to make it easier, but from what I've read those leave a lot left to be desired.
While looking at your store fronts I would make sure they have an API, this could make integrating your two systems together easier in the future. Lots of the ecommerce solutions have APIs these days, Shopify, Magento, Cs Cart, Etc. Then there are cloud based accounting solutions, like Xero that also have APIs. There might be existing plugins to make them talk to one another or connection at Zapier.
Good luck and I hope this helps, let me know if I can help in any other way. I have a bit of experience in this realm.
We don't yet, but that is a really cool idea. Which specific services and APIs did you have in mind?
We do have a developer platform which has a lot of tools around adding unsupported APIs to the Zapier platform (you can read a bit about that @ https://zapier.com/developer/).
Our blog is one of the best places to see lots of different use case: https://zapier.com/blog.
In general, if you find yourself copying and pasting or doing the same thing over and over again, you could probably automate it.
If you give me an idea about industry you're in or what apps you use, I might be able to recommend something!
Although you say you want a non-calendar app, could you set up a separate calendar for your course schedules? You can certainly do this with Google Calendar.
Or how about a project management tool? E.g. ones such as on here: https://zapier.com/blog/free-project-management-software/ (Note: I've not used any that they recommend so I've no idea if they're any good.)
There are tools that will create "triggers" that can share data between systems after scheduled actions. You could combine Google Sheets and Mailchimp to start improving your IT related operations incrementally.
Check out Zapier.com for this.
Then when you outgrow that system, you can find or develop something more robust. With more and more APIs, there should be more options in the near.
Qt designer speeds up the process and makes it easier to do the layout, but fundamentally, you are dealing with user interface design which is a huge topic in its own right.
Frankly, working out how the user will interact with the application, what the user experience overall will be, what the end-to-end flow is are the most important considerations.
Which particular tool you use to layout the display is a relatively minor consideration (although it might not feel like it at the moment). There are tools specially designed to help plan the above elements. https://zapier.com/blog/best-wireframe-tools/
So carry on with tkinter to get the practice in for developing a GUI front end to an application, but keep the rest in mind.
I justified minecraft in this way. My life is much better without it.
Consider reading the 12 week year. It teaches you how to plan, and you can start to scratch that same itch through planning and execution. What's better, you actually get something out of it.
If you're good at those games though, I would highly consider looking at zapier.com for a real-world tool where you can use those skills.
Few ways you could do this.
Edit the text of the Reddit comment with inspect element and take a screenshot everytime you want the text to change. Just make sure you don't move the page around when taking the screenshots otherwise they wont line up once you've stacked them up in the timeline.
Tutorial for that here: https://zapier.com/blog/inspect-element-tutorial/
You could also make a solid color in your editing software and just position it above the text to hide parts of the sentence. Make the solid whatever size/length you need. Super easy to do.
Do you want to code the integration yourself or use a software as a service solution?
It looks like Zapier has a "no code" interface for this capability.
I don't know if this is what you're looking for or not, but if you make a 'share' link, and change the last word of the link where it says "edit" to "copy" it will force the sheet to open as a copy of the original. If every time they open it, it's a copy, then they'll be able to edit it to their hearts content without ever bothering someone else.
I think notion does not have the feature but they have an integration with Zapier as far as I can see. Furthermore I was able to find this: https://zapier.com/shared/34907bd4b25a0a4d6deae1bb7c5a6ffdd0ee2836 It looks like someone tried something similar already, maybe you can fine tune it so it works flawlessly with your template.
I am looking for a solution like that for a long time now. Would be really awesome if this would work!
Thank you a lot for looking into it!
Yes, there’s a specific delay action by zapier in the action events. This link walks you through setup:
If you need more help, let me know. I’ll do my best to help you figure it out
Never sure what advertising kinda rules subs have so erring on caution there!
The one I've used is miro, but seems there's a lot out there: comparisons
Yes, if you're using chrome via a workaround.
For example, I have the word prod as the keyword (and sand for sandbox), so if I can navigate to the address bar, all I need to search is 'prod view sec for sec' and it'll deliver me straight to the results.
Look at Zapier. Basic zap would be something like
Someone already suggested Gong's own Salesforce integration. If that one doesn't work for you for some reason, maybe the integration from zapier can help doing this?
It’s just a bunch of different access points for various things you might need. Think of it as a collection of outlets around your house: one to use the TV, another to charge your phone, but you need a three prong one for your air conditioner. It’s all under the same roof but each one allows you to do something different depending on what you need.
I’ve been working with Dropbox to automate moving files. There’s several endpoints I need to call before I can even get to my folders. Like authenticating the request, authorizing the secret code that says “hey here’s proof that she gave permission,” and then my team workbase so as to figure out where the folder is that holds the file I need moved.
I’m also new at this but once I understood that the API is just different ways to access certain points, it made a lot more sense.
Here’s something from Zapier introducing APIs
No, but I found out that my URL was wrong - so this is the message you get, when you try to access someone elses Zap. You could reproduce with this, if you are logged in:
Maybe you’d be interested in the Zapier remote work guide. It’s a “remote native” company that has aggregated a lot of knowledge from their experience over the years.
If you want to scrape data from somewhere like CoinGecko, this guide might be helpful:
You can fake website content really easily by editing the HTML - that means you edit the website as it's displayed in your browser, even though the actual website content (if you load it in a different browser or reload it) remains the same.
There's an explanation here.
Now, I don't know whether that person did that, but it's definitely easy to do.
Hello from a Zapien (I work at Zapier)! Let's see if I can help.
I imagine you're asking about the Facebook Conversions API. If so, Zapier does have an integration with it that should make setting this up fairly easy.
The Trigger for you Zap will be Wix Automations. You can learn more about how to use this directly from Wix..
You'll then select Facebook Conversions as the Action step.
From there you'll connect the appropriate fields from Wix and you're good to go!
It's important to note that you'll need to go to the Events Manager in Facebook and make sure you've selected Zapier as an approved partner for the pixel you're using. Here are instructions directly from Facebook.
Haha, I've done the same thing and avoided studying in favor of doing more interesting things. You can try using a lockdown browser extension or focus app that blocks certain websites during your study times. It works sometimes, but I frequently find myself circumventing the system.
What I do now is avoid certain websites that I know I'll get lost in (Youtube, Facebook, etc.) by going on them as little as possible when I'm only my computer or only accessing them on my phone. Essentially, I make using them as difficult as possible so my brain doesn't want to bother with it. I'm currently unmedicated, but I found taking meds made starting tedious tasks a little more bearable. Good luck to you!
Scheduler will help you.
But I think you misunderstand how Zapier works. Every Zap works at certain intervals by default. How long that interval is depends on your plan. The Free plan is every 15 minutes I think. So your Twitter zap checks for its conditions every 15 minutes automatically and will then run the task, according to your steps.
It's the icon that looks like a little funnel - click that and you'll see the pre-set filters.
Here's a good explainer on how to use them and how to build your own:
I think this is doable by adding a Formatter step to your zap and using the Spreadsheet-style formula function in it.
Here's the knowledge base link - https://zapier.com/help/create/format/spreadsheet-style-formulas-in-zaps
Let me know how it goes, happy to assist!
