Hello SuperTips readers,
I've just become EXTRA productive.
How come ?
Well I now run a dual monitor system i.e. I have an extra
monitor attached to my computer.
Having a second window on another screen allows me, for
example, to compare two files, to copy and paste from one

And he created a new tool. One which I've been playing
around with now for a good few hours - which I can now
afford having made all those productivity gains.
And thinking about a myriad of ways to use it.
