  • Re: Time 'cheating' tips

    Two years on. What else have i learnt and cultivated to maximise the ROI for my ''spare'' bouts of time? Well, I have succeeded in exponentially increasing my procrastination durations, and drastically decreasing my energy and motivation to get things done. :-) One of my favourite procrastination activities is to listen to podcasts from ...

  • Your profession is to follow somebody else's instruction booklet, blindly

    At a present project we are delivering for a customer, the infrastructure includes a fairly simple set of stand-by servers to be situated at a disaster-recovery site. It is a scaled-down mirror of production environment, with the application database being backed up from the production database server over to the DR database server ...

  • How collaboration helps your brain

    My attention was caught by this article How Marriage Helps Your Brain from a recent MSN Health newsletter. Not that I was interested in marriage itself; who really wants to divide income and expenses into half, and listen to the your other half nag daily about important things in life when all you wanna do is dodge responsibilities and enjoy ...

  • Please restrict learning for exams only

Are you studying for exam? This ...

  • The other side is always blind

    Kit Kai recently had an ''encounter'' with the marketing force from the other side. The ''other side'' being a generic term for camps that are not Microsoft. He comments on the bemusement and FUD efforts on their part to curb down Microsoft and .NET, exposing their extreme ill-researched nature to the laughter of those who live the ...

  • Time 'cheating' tips

    or more professional referred to by book authors as ''Time Management Skills'' to better sell their titles. Anyway, as a rehash of my working philosophy, I recently shared an article with my colleagues on how to seriously lie and cheat one's way to buy more time. Here's a reprint of it: Best Bang for Your Buck Time Hail comrades! Our ...

  • Knowledge in the world

    A friend has been kind enough to lend me his copy of The Design of Everyday Things, a book I have been longing to read for its reputation for one of the most lauded books in object designs for human use. I am still not done reading, yet, and probably wouldn't want to (and don't need to) write a review for it. What I do wish to jot down here is ...
