Time management >

You are chained to things that make you unproductive. Unproductive not only in terms of your responsibilities but also your desires. They are a strain not only on your time but also on your peace of mind.

Unplugging targets a wide number of associated things, freeing up time and considerations to be put toward things which are specifically-desired. Instead of effort being put toward problems, passion is put toward desires.

This action is meant to take the whole day, and be regularly repeated. It is meant to be a defined branch of time management and a fundamental philosophy.

The right way to go about all of this would be to print this off. Better yet, write it all out by hand; make it yours.

Software > Operating Systems >

An operating system most notably on mobile phones, but also found on media boxes.

Fundamentally flawed - It is tethered to Google in as many ways as they've made possible. From a time server, to internet traffic compression. From google play requiring an account requiring your verified phone number. From hoops to download and install software from their store. It's fucking awful.

A set of exercises created by practicing psychology clinicians and academics, demonstrated to improve lives.

People who spend time writing carefully about themselves become happier, less anxious and depressed and physically healthier. They become more productive, persistent and engaged in life. This is because thinking about where you came from, who you are and where you are going helps you chart a simpler and more rewarding path through life.

TODO - tested and working, though my most recent Lubuntu experimentation has problems I'm still troubleshooting.

At best, my computer hangs when prompting for a password. I think this is related to the 4.4.14 kernel but have not confirmed this.

These instructions are a lot easier than they seem, and a smart and patient beginner will be able to follow them!

  • These notes were made from instructions from Slackware "current", as of 2016-11-05, and have been tested on Slackware 14.2, and 14.2 32bit.
  • These notes were made on an everyday system with one hard drive which I completely formatted for this purpose.

    • If you are a new user, it is strongly recommended that you remove all hard drive's your using and do this on a spare unused/empty drive.
  • This concept and these notes build a full-disk Slackware installation which also uses LVM. You can safely ignore the entire LVM post and just follow this one.

World of Warcraft > AddOns >

my fork https://github.com/spiralofhope/TidyBar
Issue tracker: https://github.com/spiralofhope/TidyBar/issues

Reconfigures for your action bars. It retains the design of the standard interface, which reduces the screen clutter.

An absolutely spectacular simplification of the UI.

  • Brings three of your bars to the middle.
  • Brings the remaining two bars to the right-hand side, and hides them unless your mouse is over that area.
  • Takes the blizzard stuff, and hides it in the bottom-right corner unless your mouse is over that area.

_DevPadEditor

World of Warcraft > AddOns >

my forks
https://github.com/spiralofhope/_DevPad
https://github.com/spiralofhope/_DevPad.GUI

An in-game text editor and addon authoring tool (Lua).

Keep notes with it, write Lua scripts, or prototype addon concepts in its trimmed down development environment. Organize your scripts into folders and share them with other _DevPad users. Scripts can run automatically on login like mini addons, and can call each other like libraries or dependencies.

An absolutely spectacular AddOn that I'm not sure I can live without.
