How to clean up and reduce your Gmail account size

Gmail was built so that we don’t have to delete any emails or even need to organize email as its search is powerful enough to find things. But after 16 yrs of use, I have started to stumble on size restrictions. One easy way is to find all big emails and delete them if not required.
To find big emails just type size:30MB in the search box and it will return all emails larger than 30 Megabytes. You can change the “30” to a higher, or lower, number to increase or decrease the number of results. You can change the size to KB if required. eg: ‘size:20KB’.

Open Source SQL Editor and Database Manager

I am always looking out for Free SQL Manager especially for Mac. I have come across a new Beekeeper studio. It looks quite good and available for all 3 platforms PC, Mac and Linux. Few of the features of the Beekeeper studio are:
Connect with Confidence
Alongside normal connections, you can encrypt your connection with SSL, or tunnel through SSH. Save a connection password and Beekeeper Studio will make sure to encrypt it to keep it safe.
SQL Auto-Completion
Our built-in editor provides syntax highlighting and auto-complete suggestions for your tables so you can work quickly and easily.
Open Lots of Tabs
Open dozens of tabs so you can write multiple queries and tables in tandem without having to switch windows.
Save SQL Queries For Later
Easily save and organize commonly used queries so you can use them again and again across all your connections.
View Table Data
Tables get their own tabs too! Use our table view to sort and filter results by column.
You can download the installer from https://www.beekeeperstudio.io.

OpenSnitch

OpenSnitch is a GNU/Linux port of the Little Snitch application firewall.
OpenSnitch does is track internet requests made by applications you have installed. OpenSnitch allows you to create rules for which apps to allow to access the internet and which to block. Each time an application that does not have a rule in place tries to access the internet, a dialog box appears. This dialog box gives you the option to allow or block the connection.
You can also decide whether this new rule applies to the process, the exact URL it is attempting to reach, the domain that it is attempting to reach, to this single instance, to this session or forever.
For more how to install and use check out https://github.com/evilsocket/opensnitch
