People from all walks of life and of all ages are craving for these fashionable head accessories.

@Tynan on Maintaining Habits over Weekends http://tynan.com/community/861093 Hi Tynan,

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.

Can you think of any potential solutions to this problem?

I love using /var on sites as much as the other guy http://tynan.com/community/840916 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.

- Var

Rialta: Apple laptop charger hack! http://tynan.com/community/473660 Hi guys,

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. < 100% battery), it would cause the fuse on that circuit to pop. (Of note, I could charge the battery, but only if the laptop was off.)

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).

So, I thought about it and hunted down this hack:
http://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/87924/how-to-disable-battery-charging

TL;DR - If you put a piece of tape over the middle pin of your Magsafe charger, it will prevent the charger from charging the battery, but the charger will still be used to power the laptop.

In my situation with the stock wiring, this allows me to use my laptop whenever it's not fully charged and let's me not drain my coach batteries, just to charge my laptop.

Hope that helps someone! Cheers!

Switching between QWERTY and DVORAK http://tynan.com/community/480068 After reading Tynan's post on it at the beginning of 2012, I switched over to DVORAK, and its worked out great. I'm pretty sure I type faster now, and I find it easier when writing code. The thing that messes me up lately is when I have to use other computers, like showing a family member something or at work. I sort of retained QWERTY in that when I look down at the keys, I can type at somewhat normal speed, but when I look away I lose it. It doesn't work too well though, and I end up with a lot of errors I'm not aware of cause I'm looking down. Also, I find that the more I try to reacquaint myself with QWERTY, it begins to mess up DVORAK. Any suggestions on retaining both without screwing up one or the other? Thanks

Wool Jeans http://tynan.com/community/775133 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?

Finished Russian http://tynan.com/community/finished-russian 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?

These are the things I hope for, but I also acknowledge that it's possible nothing will come of it. Maybe I'll remember as much Arabic as I now remember of high school Chemistry. Even if that's the case, sticking to something hard for such a long time is certainly building my willpower. Most people who think this is a waste of time watch far more than half an hour a day of TV, and this can't possibly be as great a waste of time as that.

So the experiment continues happily. I did my first Thai tape today. On deck after that are Italian, Hungarian, Dutch, and French.
