The Dreadful Return of the Weekly Gnuz and Lynx Roundup


This week has been…tolerable, with a lot of good stuff going on in terms of effective studying. I’m training with and practicing new mnemonics techniques as study aids, and working on a bunch of new images.

Within the last couple of weeks, I got my new laptop, and a useful tool it is indeedy — I use it for all of my fractal making now, since it’s got much more speed and storage space than the iMac.

The laptop is a Macbook Pro, and it’s so handy to take it library-haunting so I don’t have to wait in line at the overcrowded computer labs they have there.

Right now, I’m learning the number sequences needed to effectively use coding mnemonics, as well as setting up both imaginary and real landmarks for using the earliest recorded technique, the Method of Loci, or place method, to help me with getting details when listening to lectures.

The cats are doing wonderful, and Eccles is starting to put on a few extra ounces, while Rocky and Gorgeous aren’t getting any skinnier themselves!

There’s been a few things pretty depressing happening, with the misfortune of a friend of mine who’s been diagnosed with a serious illness (who shall remain unnamed, as will the illness), and the signing of the euthanization papers of a really, really sick neighborhood cat (FIV infection).

Here’s metaphorical finger crossing for a better weekend and coming week. If nothing else, it feels good to bring back this post.

Stay cosmic!

About Troy Loy

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.
