Once upon a time there was a quack named <your name>. Everyday <your name> arrived to work to solve complicated technical problems with their mighty intellect and LabVIEW development skills. These skills, wielded like a sharp sword helped <your name> slay even the toughest of challenging problems. One day, <your name> faced a looming dreadline that threatened impending doom if <your name> could not dispatch of it quickly enough.

Using LabVIEW's diff tool with SourceTree

Our team is using BitBucket for source code control and the SourceTree app for Windows to interface with our repositories. We've had a couple of small hurdles getting SourceTree to integrate with the LabVIEW diff tool, but here's a solution that's worked for us.

Even More Life Changing Mouse Buttons

I recently wrote a post on how to change your life by changing a mouse button.  My life has been vastly improved since I added a delete button to my mouse.  My hair is growing thicker and fuller, my eyesight has improved, my lawn is greener, and I can delete things so much faster than before.  My life has been great, but I still felt like something was missing.

Change a Mouse Button, Change Your Life

I like being efficient. I don't like doing unnecessary things.  I figure out the fastest route to drive everywhere I go.  I even tie my shoes differently to save myself two seconds.  If you have talked to me in person then it is very likely you have heard me go on about minimizing my wallet.  I don't like wasting time or energy.  At Endigit, we are proud of our efficiency and ability to complete things quickly. One way we do this is by being effective in our key strokes and mouse clicks.
