Loving My MacBook Air

In December of 2014 I accidentally spilled some beverage (was it lemonade coconut water?) onto my MacBook Pro (that I'd owned since 2008-2009) and it no longer would work. After a visit at the Genius bar they said it was unfixable. I was on vacation in Florida so I had to have a new laptop to entertain myself for those two weeks alone. Enter the MacBook Air.

I got the 11" model because it's so small and adorable, and a lot cheaper too natch. I bought a little orange skin/case for it to help deter any harsh impacts. It's worked wonderfully ever since I bought it. Convenient, accessible and on-task. I couldn't be happier.

And so light you can put it in your large purse or workbag without a second thought. I can still view Netflix, Amazon Instant or YouTube videos without trouble because the landscape monitor is very high quality.

Although I still miss my very first MacBook Pro, I do have another replacement and this lovely Air to play with.

I've actually left my Lenovo Gaming laptop by the wayside because it's so huge, bulky and the track pad so glitchy and inconvenient to use.

Lotus Notes User Icon/Letterhead

I started a new job in June 2014. Ever since I've pined over the cool user icons I see my colleagues using.

Whenever someone sends an email message, an icon appears on the left-hand side of the email message header.

I did some searching today and found out this is actually a preference setting for letterhead.

Here is how you update your letterhead "icon:"
Updating Lotus Notes Mail Letterhead
  • Open Lotus Notes
  • Under the File menu, select Preferences
  • Under the left-hand side menu select Mail
  • Look for the Letterhead tab, and select it
  • Scroll to find your preferred letterhead "icon" and select it
  • Click ok and close out.

You can send yourself an email to test it.

I'm really happy I took about 5 minutes to search for the how to on Google. It took a while to finagle what the exact nomenclature should be.

It's important to me to express my individuality as much as possible ;o) Good stuff. :)
