Things that make my life easier

Some random things that make my life easier:

  • The dishwasher. Run it every few days (when full). Cool.
  • RSS. Lets me catch up on news and blogs in seconds flat.
  • The 8:06 and 8:17 expresses. Bentleigh to Parliament in 17 minutes. If there’s a faster way into the city in peak hour (barring helicopter) I’d like to hear about it. Shame they’re the only two that fast – most trains take closer to 25 minutes.
  • Internet banking. Without it I’d be spending half my life in queues at the post office or the bank. As it is I only do so when I need stamps.
  • Weather forecasts. These days they seem relatively accurate. Less guesswork about taking a jacket or brolly. Can get ’em via mobile phone, TV teletext and web, which is good, as I invariably miss them on the TV news. (But I don’t understand why overseas web companies are unable to source accurate weather forecasts… in Centigrade.)

Wireless connection for me. Can now do my work from home with a minimum of fuss any time night or day and from anywhere in my house.
Fan forced oven works for me too. Even heat distribution. Oh, and self-cleaning ovens are the best.

Online checking definitely rocks.

In the US, we can buy stamps online or by leaving an order form in the mailbox — no postage on delivered stamps. Many grocery stores/card shops also sell postage (at face value) which means no trips to post office required.
