January 25th, 2015

Besides crafting unique content for our ever-growing readership, we share loads more content through our social channels on a daily basis. Once a week we curate the best of these links to highlight great content further and to make our shares available to all those readers who refuse to partake in social networks, which as we all know is not the dumbest of ideas. Anyway, who am I to judge? Have it your own way. These are our Links of the Week 4 of 2015…

Quick Tip for Mac Users: WiFi Signal


This turned out to be the perfect companion for me and my new MacBook, which unbelievably misses an LAN connector, thus forcing me to rely on WiFi exclusively. The inbuilt WiFi monitor is ridiculous, WiFi Signal shows much more information and helps you troubleshoot connectivity problems effectively. Did I mention that it’s free? Well, it’s free!

GitHub: Awesome Remote Job


Remote working – working from your own four walls (or how many you might have) is a growing trend if not a whole new economy altogether. There is a lot to know and more to miss if you’re thinking about entering the world of soloing. Lukasz Madon is actively compiling a list of resources to turn to over at GitHub. If you’re on the brink of leaping, head over (heels) to his repository and read through the articles, books, newsletters and what not. He also holds relevant job boards and lists companies with a “remote DNA”.

By the way, did you know that four out of ten remote workers see the major advantage in working from home in being able to stay nude while working? Embarrassing, isn’t it?!
