Almost one grand of mnemosyne entries, yay…

Wow, just look at that 4-digit number in the lower right corner (not marked in red, so you have to look harder ^_^)

I wonder if mnemosyne will crash if I add another entry? Or maybe the universe will collapse.

Anyway, I just got started on mnemosyne about four years ago and have since added 10⁵-1 entries, ranging from vocabulary in Japanese, Chinese, Italian, keywords for the  LPIC tests and more. Only a few were imported from lists, all others were inputted by hand.

This software really has helped me a lot memorizing all that vocabulary and I can only recommend it. Sometimes it’s hard to do these exercises every day but it’s definitely worth it.

Creepy pearl solution :-)

In the game called “pearl” you have to run a line through all dots on a board. The goal is to create a loop and the black and white dots have different requirements.

The principle is very simple and the game is some good diversion in times of stress.

Recently, I’ve come across this creepy solution:

Proof, we’re being monitored by machines? Who knows… I for one welcome our mechanical overlords. Can’t get any worse, can it…

If you want to try it, on Ubuntu it can be installed by the command “sudo apt-get install sgt-puzzles” which will install a whole package of other puzzles too.
