You don’t need to micromanage the recycle bin in OneNote

What I am reading and doing today

I stumbled across this site recently.  I had been looking for resources for how to convert myself to more of a data analytics type of role and really liked Swami’s Metro (transportation) style roadmap.  I like it so much I am using its influence to roll out a training session for other folks in my…
