My Gmail account is my main email. I get dozen (if not hundreds) of e-mails everyday. Most of them are already filtered with dozen of rules that I’ve been creating since 2006. But there are a functionality that was missing: alert me whenever an important e-mail arrives.

I tried using filters combined with notifications alerts on Android or IOS, but after struggling for sometime, I gave up.

Years later, on my “automation my life” mission, I decided to search for some Google Scripts that could ease my life. That’s when I found Andreas Hochsteger’s Gmail2GDrive. I gave a try and it worked flawless, nowadays many of my bills are saved automatically on my Google Drive making my life much easier.

Then yesterday I remembered of my long lasting issue of not being able to be notified of my important e-mails. As my studies on Python have increased, also my knowledge and use of Telegram API. So I thought that maybe I could join Gmail2GDrive and Telegram API and personalize a solution, that’s when I adapted Gmail2Gdrive.

I got the project and made it much simpler (not better, simpler in functionalities) and adapted it to work with Telegram. I set the script to run every 5 minutes and voilà, now I have my notification system working.

If you want to check it, go to Gmail2Telegram on Github.

Google blocked The Great Suspender (this link isn’t working anymore) extension from Chrome, with existing users now receiving a message that it has “been disabled because it contains malware.

The Great Suspender was a quite useful extension for keeping my browser running smoothly given the number of opened tabs that I always left open, without actually forcing you to close old tabs.

I decided to create a solution for myself using PHP and Javascript. I named it “the simple suspender”. You can check its source code at
