My gear-fixation probably started when I was a Boy Scout. There was a tool called the Woodsman’s Pal that I *had* to have. It just looked, well, way more Ninja than the puny “hatchet” I used for years.
Turns out, the hatchet worked just fine, still does today. And as an adult I value simple, effective, uncomplicated tools that do something fundamentally important, every day.
As an IT Pro – Sysinternals BgInfo is one of those tools. Check it out. You’ll be glad you did, and it takes far less maintenance over time than a camp hatchet.
