Toolkit

Herby Olschewski

I’ve used quite a number of tools and utilities over the my 35+ years as a computer systems manager. Living on the bleeding edge of technology, requires a balance of staying with what works… and switching to something new and better. The fear of missing out and/or distraction by some shiny software, is what we fret over at Geeks Anonymous. Not to mention the countless hours roaming around the aisles in a large computer store. It’s addictive. The best way to beat the Best Buy bottle store… is stay away. Go online, research and read reviews, before hitting the buy button.

Over the years, I’ve developed a sophisticated set of tools, logically grouped and readily at hand. Not unlike the garage of a smart mechanic. Everything is neatly arranged in drawers and/or hanging on the wall, within easy reach. A cluttered workshop inevitably leads to shoddy job, taking much more time that necessary. It’s taken me many years to figure it all out and come up with a system and workflow… that works.

How I organize my tools…

The folders/icons on my laptop/phone are grouped:
