Intuitive Digital Calendar System, Simple and Robust:
Two calendars are visible and third one, for reminders, lives in the background.
Main Individual Calendar: for my/Greg physical (need to be somewhere) appointments.
Family Calendar Shared: minimizes family calendar conflicts, read/revise everywhere.
Reminders Individual Calendar: private notes to stay project focused, does not need to be visible, saves mobile screen real estate.
DoList on the 15th of each month: repeats with ideas gleaned from every day interest, includes events, books, need to read articles, links to review, etc.
Monthly To Do List: repeats on first of month with item reminders and seasonal considerations. To Do List includes home maintenance, car maintenance, fertilize garden, rotate tires, etc, all the basic things easily forgotten.

My Proposed Design of Charge Station LED Light Indicators
Proposed Oct 2015: EV / electric vehicle charging stations can have these status lights to indicate state of charge:

  • White: Ready to charge, No internet connection for billing
  • Green: Ready to charge, Yes internet connection for billing
  • Green Blinking: Charging
  • Yellow/Amber: Charge Timer Schedule is Set
  • Red: Fault
  • Blue: Indicates EV Charging Station Location, Viewed from distance in parking garages
  • Dimming LED’s is Important for neighbors, no flashing lights or glow at night

Current light indicators need refinement in my opinion.

  • Team Strategy, Inc resource allocation and monitoring software
    Details of my user interface review soon.
