Starting October 13, 2020, Google Drive is making a change so that its trash behaves more consistently with the rest of our G Suite services with regards to automatic deletion. This means that any file that is put into Google Drive’s ‘My Drive’ trash will be automatically deleted after 30 days.

Please note that starting October 13, 2020 any files already in a user’s trash will remain there for 30 days. After the 30-day-period files that have been in the trash for longer than 30 days will begin to be automatically deleted.

A few things to note:

  • Files in a Shared drive’s trash are already automatically deleted after 30 days.
  • These changes affect items that are trashed from any device and any platform.
  • Files deleted from Drive File Stream will be purged from the system trash after 30 days. There is no impact to Backup and Sync behavior.

Are you planning on hosting a virtual or in-person event? This Live Training Session will show you how to use Google Forms, Docs, Sheets, and a cool add-on to help with event registration whether your event is only offered to UCAR/NCAR staff or is open to the public. This session is a two-part session due to the detail of content covered. PART 1: In this first training session we will create a living agenda that can be published to staff only or publicly. We will then create a custom Google Form, discuss permissions and sharing, form branding, and where to find responses. PART 2: In this session we will focus on the responses of your event registration, we will create a custom Mail-Merge Email using FormMule, and talk about event registration automation and communication.  For support on other GSuite apps, please visit google.ucar.edu.

Black Bean Brownie Bites

I can only guess what you’re thinking .. that sounds disgusting! But I promise you this is a thing. I first made these brownies years ago with teenagers who were very skeptical but actually liked them! Since then I’ve made a few tweaks over the years to suit our particular tastes, eliminate the processed sugar, and make it gluten-free. The key is to NOT TELL ANYONE THERE ARE BEANS in here and the other is to use enough cocoa powder to hide the taste of the black beans. My partner’s nephew said it tasted really rich, then when he was told there were beans in it he could instantly taste it and that was not necessarily a good thing. However, these brownies add fiber and protein, and they can be made either as cakey or fudgy brownies depending on your preference (he likes cakey and I like fudgy so I bake them both ways using the same batter). I hope you’ll be brave enough to trust and try, good luck!
