Save Your LinkedIn Viewed History
Derek shares a Chrome extension for saving your profile's Viewed history on LinkedIn:
I built this extension for Chrome that automatically (as long as you're logged into LinkedIn) saves information about who viewed your LinkedIn profile. As a non-Premium member, the LinkedIn site only shows the five most recent views, but this extension saves them all.
Use a Monopod for Elevated Photos
Joe shares tips for using a monopod to get great elevated shots:
You can use a simple monopod to get good elevated shots of crowds or buildings without having to drag out a ladder. Elevated shots give the much broader perspective necessary for shooting certain events.
Make Cheese Fondue in a Rice Cooker
Fondue Hacker shares a clever tip for making fondue without extra equipment:
I recently found that a humble rice cooker can be used as a perfect replacement to an expensive cheese fondue set. The 'cook' mode can be used to melt cheese fondue and the 'keep warm' mode can be used to keep cheese warm while everyone gathers around to dip their bread. And above all, cleaning it later is a breeze since cheese doesn't stick to the non-stick rice cooker pan. Sure it may look ugly to cheese fondue aficionados, but if you're like me and prefer reusing kitchen apparatus instead of buying more unnecessary stuff, you will like this hack.
