Always open new windows with full features

leave a comment »

I get annoyed whenever a web link open a new window with stripped down features (hidden location bar, status bar, or scroll bar). MozillaZine has a great little tip how to prevent this from happening.

Office 2007

leave a comment »

Microsoft Office 2007 is a pain to use. You have to convert document into 2007 format to be able to do simple things such as inserting equations. Of course, once it is in 2007 format, old version (2003) cannot open the file.

Just use linux and Mac OS X when I can.

Time management

leave a comment »

Right now work-wise, I’m taking on quite a diverse range of tasks. Running and analyzing fusion simulation, X-ray diffraction analysis, teaching (one short word which takes a lot of time), and trying to get the funding for the fusion collaboration. I have to split time between these tasks as best as I can.

It’s not easy trying to be well versed in many fields and at the same time be an expert in one.

Achievement

leave a comment »

Sometimes you want to push your dream and make it a reality. Sometimes, it’s just too hard and too tiring. Must learn to pick your battle. Do your best and forget about it.

Maybe I should just accept what it is and relax. It’s not what one achieves in life that matter, it’s what one overcomes.
