Bloglines keyboard shortcuts

October 13, 2005 - Categories: -Uncategorized

I totally, totally love Bloglines’ keyboard shortcuts. That tiny addition just made web-based RSS reading _so_ much easier for me. Why? Because it makes it so much easier to quickly go through titles and lead paragraphs of all the stories on the blogs I read.

Take a risk today

Via McGee’s Musings, from Jason Womack:

Do one brave thing today… then run like hell!

Only solve the problems you need to solve

James Gosling says, “Only solve the problems you need to solve.”

My research supervisor told me that my only mission is to turn in a
good thesis at the end of two years. Okay, and do well in my courses.
That’s all he’s asking for. =)

It helps that I actually enjoy looking for funding and thinking of
useful projects, but if push comes to shove, I should focus on
something I can write and finish than just on something that’s
well-funded.

I’m not even writing a Ph.D. dissertation, just a master’s thesis.
Master’s theses are much shorter than Ph.D. dissertations. I can get
away without inventing a whole new field, for example. =)

Thanks to Luis Fernandes for the tip!
