Do You Have Any Geeky Resolutions For 2008?

Aside from the usual go to the gym more, eat more fruits and veggies and get more sleep New Year's resolutions, I've also got a long list of tech resolutions that I'm hoping to achieve in '08. First thing's first. . .Uploading all my holiday pictures to online albums to share with friends and family, as they usually sit on my camera for months after Christmas. After that I'm going to do a major virtual cleaning. . .Delete old emails and put them in appropriate folders, clean up my desktop, organize documents, bookmarks and the biggie—back-up my data. I also want to update the music library on my iPod, create a gadget-charging sanctuary in my apartment as well as give away and recycle old electronics. Have you made any tech-related resolutions for the new year? Source

I just got a Blackberry curve after being a loyal Palm user of 8 years and am looking forward to learning how to use it and make it work for me! btw--LOVE the Blackberry. ;) Also, just switched from PC to Mac and am in heaven. Hoping to start the year off right and keep it organized from the beginning.

I don't have that many gadgets but I won a nice digital camera last year and still haven't used it (what? at least I cleaned out a closet over the holidays!) No, really, I'm tired of this faceless blue-haired girl as my avitar/pic. That's at the top of my To Do list!

Learn VectorWorks before grad school in the fall. Sell old games that I never play. Put my portfolio online/ create a website for myself.

gruaig_rua - i'm interested to know what Geek suggests for windows, too -lots of people ask me what they can use since they also do not have macs. i do love Delicious Library, though - so if people do have macs: check out their website!

Tdamji - I just googled "delicious library" because I had never hear of it. It looks fantastic! Unfortunately I don't use Mac. Geek - is there anything like Delicious Library for Windows?

I "only" have 5000 songs on my iPod... I need more! And hopefully, I'll be able to get a touch iPod out of my parents for my 30th birthday in April.

i'm getting a new tv in a few days (i've never had my own so haven't had a tv in our place for 7 years) so i want to set up my wii and my old laptop to it so i can listen to music that way. i'd like to scan-in all my documents in my filing cabinet and get rid of it, and have a back up of all important docs on a hard drive in my safe. do all my course readings before classes (this has never happened, but is always on my list) make weekly to-do lists get a 4gb micro sd card go through all my external hard-drives and get rid of duplicates continue to catalogue my books and movies and games on delicious library as soon as i get them painfully - sell some old books and games i no longer need go on craigslist and get some used wii games - like super mario galaxy for 15$ less than new!

Back up my digital photos. It makes me really uncomfortable that all of them are on my laptop hard drive, I really need to get them on DVD.

Yes I do! I want to.... -keep my Sugar and email inboxes cleaned out better -organize my digital pics and make dvd backups -get a bunch of the stuff on my Tivo burned to dvd's so it quits automatically deleting other programs -take a photo of all of my video games from every console for the Geeky Things I Love group -Pass Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess and at least pass Medium level on Guitar Hero 3 -Get a bigger iPod so I can have more of my music with me at all times

My main resolution is to try and set the computer down. People will not parish if I help them in 1 hour instead of 5 minutes. When I finally have my baby I don't want him to think that he has a twin brother that looks like a MacBook Pro. Set it down... Just put it down....

Be more familiar with tech stuff so I won't have to rely on my brother all the time. All the names and acronyms and codes and cords and cables are just soo confusing. :(

1. I need to add more things to my Evernote archive program. (I LOVE this program.) Particularly things I've starred in my Google Reader. 2. I'd like to be more active with Flickr this year. I'm very bad about uploading digital pictures. 3. I'd like to scan some of my old grade school papers and back those up on my computer.
