Teaching teaching and understanding understanding

This interestingly titled 19-minute short film discusses how best to deliver lessons to students. It also includes a forward by Professor John Biggs.

Teaching teaching and understanding understanding

I think there’re many things teachers can learn about teaching in this video material. Most lecturers in my university should, perhaps, take a look at this video.

I think I may have to relearn learning too. Good points.

Aptana acquires Pydev to add Python support

Aptana acquires Pydev. Pydev is an Eclipse plugin.

Aptana Acquires Pydev to add Python Support to Studio

We are very excited to announce that Pydev, the popular Python and Jython IDE, is now part of the Aptana product family and that Pydev creator, Fabio Zadronzy, will head up continued efforts to advance Pydev as part of the Aptana team. Like our products for Ruby on Rails, Ajax, and PHP, Pydev offers code completion, refactoring, code analysis, debugging support, and lots lots more. Pydev’s popularity in the Python community and Eclipse ecosystem made it the clear choice for Aptana. The acquisition sets the stage for a full Python suite of products and services ranging from local development to cloud deployment. (Source: Aptana)

Aptana is pretty neat. I use it for PHP and Ruby on Rails last time. But I didn’t find the syntax highlighting as good as Eclipse PDT and syntax highlighting is one of the main reasons I switched away. Pydev is pretty good already, lately they don’t have much significant updates.

Quantum mechanics for dummies

Clips from a BBC documentary explaining the arguments from the 1920’s until now as to whether electrons are particles, waves or both.

It outlines Einstein’s distaste at Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle and is a good starting point in realising that the universe is far, far stranger than can be imagined.

Quantum Mechanics for Dummies – Electrons Are Weird

Werner Heisenberg was a German theoretical physicist. He made contributions to quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, quantum field theory, and particle physics. Heisenberg, along with Max Born and Pascual Jordan, set forth the matrix formulation of quantum mechanics in 1926. Heisenberg was awarded the 1932 Nobel Prize in Physics. (Source: Wikipedia)

Someone just invited me to join Friendster

What? After erm so many years? I never increased my Friendster friends count much. Almost none of my friends are there. Once I had an opportunity to ask my friend why he prefer Friendster.

He tells me Friendster has more chio bu pictures.

I then realized (not ‘just’ but ‘then’) Friendster privacy is not as obvious as Facebook’s. No wonder so much pictures lah.

My kindergarten keeps feeding me with this

I wanted to buy a packet of these the other day just for old time’s sake but figured I only want to eat just a couple of it and probably throw the rest away.

My kindergarten always feeds me with this

What’s this biscuit called by the way?

I ate tons of it when I was in kindergarten and I remember there’s this girl who only eats the colored sugary top and protested to finish the biscuit.

Why doesn’t Vista let me rearrange my taskbar

One of the features I like from – ahem – Ubuntu, is that it lets me shift the tabs of the task bar around. I just like to put my work on the left side and my nonsense on the right.

Windows Vista places it based on chronological order, left to right. And upon the restart of explorer.exe due to reasons I never fully understood, it auto arranges in an order not sensible to me at all.

Why why why!
