Read My Book about Habits!
Check out my bestselling book on habits, Superhuman by Habit. .
Hey, I don't see anywhere to report SETT bugs other than here, at least as a user who doesn't have a blog of his own. Anyway, aside from the iPhone display issue I mentioned yesterday, there's a more serious one I'm seeing today: I can't load up any posts on either the blog or community page. I click on them, and sometimes it does nothing, sometimes the screen briefly darkens or the loading message in the upper left corner comes up, but the post doesn't load. Same problem with the blog and community links in the upper left, but the About Tynan.com link works for some reason. I'm using Chrome version 33.0.1750.146 on an older MacBook Pro with OSX 10.8.5
Yesterday I finished the last Russian tape in my quest to learn every language. I've now completed three months of German, one of Arabic, and three of Russian. I accidentally missed one day due to food poisoning, but not counting that I've stuck with this now for 210 days in a row. My plan is to continue for approximately 870 more days, at which time I will have 27 languages down. Currently I have eight, which are English, Mandarin, Japanese, Spanish, Romanian, German, Arabic, and now Russian.
Russian was by far the hardest language I've ever tried to learn. I don't think it's even close. I feel about half as prepared in Russian as I felt with German, which was the same length of time. If I went to Germany, even having done the tapes four months ago, I think I could get along decently. If I was in Russia tomorrow, I think I'd have a pretty rough time.
I also didn't really like Russian very much. It felt cumbersome in the same way Latin does, requiring so much agreement between various parts of speech. I never felt like I got a great handle on all of the distinct sounds that words are made up of.
People have questioned the utility of trying to learn all of the languages as I'm doing now. Frankly, I question it, too, sometimes. I know that I won't remember it all. My Arabic has withered to the barest of understanding. I have trouble remembering some simple words in Romanian.
I'm mainly learning all of these languages just to see what will happen. Will significant exposure to 27 languages strengthen universal lingual pathways in my brain? Will knowledge of these languages hide in the recesses of my brain, ready to be activated as soon as I go to their countries and refresh my memory?
For any of you interested in the Nau M2 Hoodie (Tynan featured it in his 2012 Gear Post - Zen Edition), it's currently for sale on The Clymb.
When I purchased a bunch of gear in July 2013, I looked all over for the Nau M2, and couldn't find it anywhere. Now, it's on sale at 40 percent off retail.
I'd act fast if you want it, as deals tend to go quick on The Clymb.
SHORT VERSION: Here is a link to my saved search on eBay that shows cheap Rolexes that are probably worth buying. Read on to see why.
A month ago or so I wrote a post called, No One Cares if you Buy a Rolex. If you didn't read it and don't feel like doing any link-clicking, the gist of it was that when I was younger I bought a Rolex, assuming that people would be really impressed, but in the end no one noticed or cared. You can't buy your way into being interesting.
Ironically, in writing that post, I remembered how much I loved my Rolex, despite the fact that no one else cared about it. At the same time, I had stopped really using the advanced features of the Suunto GPS watch that I had, and was thinking about getting some different watch.
Maybe I ought to get a Rolex, I thought...
Any good finds/new products for wool jeans? I check periodically and recently found these (http://www.howies.us.com/woolim-wool-jeans-indigo.html) but they're a blend and only 40% wool. Are the Versace jeans a blend as well or are they 100% wool?
I finished your book on habits recently and gained an immense amount from it. Though, one thing that I felt was lacking was a discussion on what is to me the most danger to the livelihood of new habits: The weekends.
I have a solid list of triggers that I go through on weekdays that 95% of the time gives me good results and a near 100% completion of all habits. The triggers are highly tied to the fact that I come to the office to work every morning.
On the weekends I lose all of these triggers, and I'm lucky if I even get out of bed on time. My habit tracking highly reflects this truth.
I realize you don't have weekends because you work from home and keep a mostly constant schedule, but to the average 9-5er this problem is the equivalent habit-buster to having to travel every single weekend. It throws you in a chaotic situation where your triggers aren't around to help.
But it's not really simple to use to make a website or operating systems, you need to know a lot of code!
Most people use Wordpress for the "simple way" to use /var, i recommend SETT for the best way to use /var, also breaking the 4th wall is strange to me considering your reading this on SETT.
1234567184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.17.18.19----19 losing bets in a row can happen. Pretty unusual, but it has happened to me. Loss only $145. Playing Blackjack, roulette, Baccarat, any even money game, I can recover from this loss. Starting bankroll must be 1000 times minimum bet. You can try my system on 10 cent games where you only need a starting balance of $100. I f you need more details of my method email me at clicktocontact email@example.com
Hey guys, if you find a bug in SETT, reply to this with the info. You can embed screenshots if necessary or paste error messages. If you've experienced a bug that someone else has already reported, you can vote it up so that we know it's more important.
Been a while! Hope everyone's well!
I discovered a little Rialta hack for my Apple laptop that I wanted to share.
I'm lazy and haven't re-wired the stock wiring to the 12V outlet, under the desk. Because of the lightweight stock wiring, I was always encountering a problem where, whenever my Apple laptop was both turned on and charging the battery (i.e.
This also created a nasty scenario where, if my laptop battery wasn't full, I couldn't use my laptop in the Rialta (since my laptop would immediately start to charge the battery if I plugged it in, and turned it on... gah).
