Attachment alert in Gmail

Gmail has a useful feature to alert if you have missed a attachment you meant to.
This works if there are phrased like "please find attached","see attachment", but does not work if you write "Attached herewith" or simply "Attached". May be these can be added.

You can also consecutively press the down arrow button to reduce the ringer volume of incoming call.

Unable to minimize windows remote desktop connection?

If you are stuck in a situation where you are unable to bring up the yellow bar at the top the remote desktop connection/server (MSTSC), to minimize and go back to the source machine, there are 2 solutions.
One is to log off the connection. But you will lose all session info.
The other is to hover the mouse at the top most part of the screen where the yellow bar usually appears and then middle click.This brings the yellow bar back.
Works in Windows XP/2003 servers.
