TiddlyWiki1 minutes read | 70 words
Today I found some nice “gadget” to add to my browser. TiddlyWiki. It is a single html document you download, and save. And it behaves (locally, in your computer!) just as a wiki. Creating links, adding things, whatever you like. Use it like a blog, wiki, recipe book, sketchpage, whatever you like. All gets saved in the same html file you downloaded (advise: change its name). Wikipedia page. TiddlyWiki home.

Quick PostScript Programming Tutorial9 minutes read | 1819 words
For those of you who don’t know, PostScript is a programming language (and also the name of the type of files you write in this language) used as a way to define what a page looks like. A PostScript file contains instructions which create text, or draw images, and these instructions can do quite a lot of work. PostScript is directly processed by almost all laser printers, and if you are a Linux or MacOs user you already have some mean to process and open it.
Procrastination: Causes and cures11 minutes read | 2273 words
For about a year I’ve been procrastinating a lot, and lately I decided it was time to end. To do so, I kept on procrastinating (avoiding my work) to research the web for causes, cures and pitfalls in this “disease”. In the following entry I’ll tell you everything I’ve learned (slightly condensed), hope it serves you too. Keep in mind it is a long post, bookmark it now if you can’t keep reading for this long (or use it to avoid working for about half an hour :) I will only cover the aspects of causes (and related cures) and related time management systems, but for now I will skip motivation, leaving it for another post, as I’m still thinking about it.
"Make saturday"1 minutes read | 64 words
In Catalan, we have a curious expression, “fer dissabte”, which could be translated as do the Saturday, or make Saturday as I have in the title. It describes what one should do every Saturday, as we did last Saturday: clean up the house. It took us 4 straight hours, from 11:30 to 15:30. Really tiring, but the results are great :) Clean more often!
