Addicted to Games I Hate

This is not Moonlight Mahjong
I have been playing on my mac two solitaire card games and a mahjong game.  I hate these games.  I really do.  But I can't stop playing them.

Moonlight Mahjong is a gorgeous version of solitaire mahjong with a 3D twist. There a lot of different boards and background, and a lot are 3D, which makes it more challenging because you can rotate the board any way you like, which you'll need to do to find hidden matching tiles.  And playing it is just mesmerizing.

Why do I hate it?  Because rather than doing my research or works, I just get too tempted to go into a solitaire trance. Sure, these kinds of games help reduce stress.  But most of the time I use it as a means to procrastinate.  Oh well.  Gotta go.  Itching for some 3D Klondike solitaire!

Hi Thomas! That's the problem with games in Mac or PC. My solution was I uninstalled all the games to focus on my work. And when I want to relieve stress, I leave my table and go in my garden or pond. I can smell some flowers or watch fishes for 5 to 10 minutes then go back again to work.

Brainstorming, Mind Mapping, Curio

I use this really cool Mac OS X  (I mean, is there really anything better than a Mac?) software by Zengobi called Curio.  While it lacks many of the things I would like to see in such an application--you really can't go by what I write here because what I want hasn't yet been imagined, except by me of course and I am too lazy to do anything about it--it has great potential and I think that if Zengobi has the vision it can become even more powerful which is really cool.

Part of what it gives you is mind mapping, but unlike mind mapping tools that are all about just mind mapping, Curio gives you a blank canvas onto which you can drop any kind of resource such as images, documents, web pages, etc.  And you can organize all of these sorts of things as mind maps or structured lists.  Or you don't need to do that at all.  You can just be free to layout everything randomly.

It is also a project management application, but it looks nothing like any project management software.  Th…

Quilling and Chilling

Perhaps it's because I own a scrapbooking and papercraft store.  Perhaps it is the artist within.  Perhaps it's sheer boredom as I suffer this long period of employment drought.  But whatever it is, I've decided to learn more about papercrafts and especially something called quilling or paper filigree.

I'm not quite sure why I find fascination in such things.  I am a computer geek, programmer, software developer, etc.  It must go back to my childhood and my fascination with creating arts and crafts.  As a budding artist my bud was snipped from the tree of art, and I never did pursue it. But I love color.  I love how to mix it to create new colors, how to place complimentary colors together, how to match and blend and create things with color.

The tools and the techniques of quilling are deceptively simple.  I say deceptively because although it appears at first that you are simply rolling paper around a slotted rod, forming the rolled paper into one of a few basic shapes…

OS X Yosemite: Breathing new Life into my Old, Faithful Companion

So the other day I wrote that my MacBook seemed to run a little slower and use more memory.  What's strange is now that I've been using it, it's actually running noticeably faster.  It still takes up more memory, but not that much more.  It's like Yosemite has breathed new life into my aging companion.  There is probably something I can do about the memory, too.  What my Mac really needs is more space on the hard drive.  I have some serious cleaning to do.
