I just love Google applications and how the Google team constantly improves their product. The Google Calendar has some small improvements worth mentioning that really boost productivity and improve its usability. Really its the small things that matter.
Are you suffering from G.A.S.S.? Yep seems to be viral and it affects the user and not the computer, hehe. GASS( Google Adsense Stats Syndrome) some smart people from the forums coined up the term. It is when you are constantly checking your Adsense Stats as in every 15 mins, every hour etc.. Its like an OC. We all know how it feels to see your earnings rise in the Adsense program and it is very addicting. Constantly checking can be counter productive.

Before jumping into the freelance bandwagon, it is a fact to know that the income is not stable. Better be prepared to have some cash laid away maybe good for 1 or 2 months always. Sometimes you can find yourself in a drought for projects. Some projects doesn’t materialize due to many different factors like, client changes mind, no budget, etc. Occasionally on these periods you learn to adjust your rates to bag a project and end up getting a gig that you could have been paid better. Over quoting may loose the project on the other hand, most often times it is better to be sure to get the project. That is one drawback but think of it as a survival instinct to keep afloat of the unstable freelance times.
