Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

Google Keep - a hot new app, or another app that Google will shot dead just as it's gaining popularity?

I'm really not that into Google features because every time I convince a tipping point number of friends to use one, Google shuts it down.

I also haven't tried Evernote or Catch.

My notes, shopping lists, and ideas remain scribbled in notebooks and on 3x5 index cards.

Have you moved your transient notes to a computer or phone app, or do you still rely on scraps of paper and little spiral bound notebooks?
