Streamlining my morning routine


Every morning it goes like this (in this order):

  1. Turn on computer.
  2. Launch XAMPP; start Apache and MySQL processes.
  3. Launch Eclipse.
  4. Launch the Chrome offline web apps for Remember the Milk and Gmail.
  5. Launch Skype.
  6. Open a Chrome tab and launch the Tweetdeck Chrome web app.

It’s only just occurred to me, as someone who’s been writing computer programs to some degree since 1984, that I could script this, and go make my coffee while it’s all happening. Or at least, points 2 through 6; sometimes I switch on my computer to check my email or download some photos.

Sometimes, everybody needs to take a step back.

By the way, if you have a way for me to script my morning coffee, let me know.

  1. Bedside coffee maker, and a remote control for the power switch on your PC?

    That way you could kick off both processes from bed, and only get up when everything was ready…
