Even I tried to google for answer but it just returns irrelevant stuff. I suppose these are consider too trivial or too shy for people to ask this sort of questions.

So, this article is meant for anyone who shares the same trait like me. Bumping into simple stuff in Microsoft Project that need a quick answer without having to attend formal Microsoft Project training.

1. How to rename the resource in the project?

Resource is the usually the team member of the project, it could also be machine or what ever that are required for the tasks to be carried out.

Making all the sticky notes in Outlook 2010 to appear sticky again

I use sticky notes for one reason is that it will stay sticking on my screen until I have decided to remove it.
The Microsoft Outlook the moment you create the sticky note, it will stay on top of the screen. However, when you have switch off your machine or close your Outllook application. The sticky notes will go disappear itself. You have to reopen one by one in the Outlook again to make it sticky on top again. Imagine if you have tons of sticky notes in your notes folder.  Of course for the case of Microsoft Outlook, if you want to quickly check back what you have put into the note is that you can change the view of the Sticky Note folder to list. But then again, that defeat the purpose of me using sticky note. That is not the reason why I use a sticky note, I might as well use task or something else in Outlook for that purpose.

Evernote VS OneNote

I was running into situation to pick either OneNote or Evernote for my exam preparation.

Version that I am using to compare are
- Evernote 5.3 Windows version and  Evernote for Android Mobile.
- OneNote 2013 and OneNote2010. I synchronize across few version of OneNote for the same stuff. And then, OneNote for Android recently launched.

Experience on the software wise, I have used both OneNote and Evernote for years. Although I have to be frank that, due to heavy duty of notes that I am taking and I am using Windows on my PC. I used OneNote more often. Evernote I came across this because of its popularity in Android community.
My feeling towards both of the software are,  features wise, Onenote wins Evernote hands down.
Evernote I would say currently it only carries a subset of features what Onenote has.
