Busily studying…

The best quote of the day: “Luck is the residue of design.” Branch Rickey

It’s actually quite appropriate. Today I’m using Mindmanager X5 to put together a mind map of the latest chapter of my thesis. It’s pretty cool software. Basically, it’s a system for creating mind-maps. These are branching diagrams that show the relation of ideas that you have. I’ve put the central idea of my chapter in the middle, then arranged the main subtopics and their smaller aspects around it. The Mindmanager software lets me move things around easily so it’s simple to create new connections and organise things before I start writing. At the moment I’m adding loads of notes to the topics, then when I’m done I’ll just publish it as a Word document and fill in the blanks with my interpretation… Easy… I hope… I’ll let you know how I get on.

Mittens: It’s been ages since I made a new Mittens animation. There is one waiting in the wings, it’s just on standby until Shok gets the music to me, which hopefully will be in the next 24 hours-or-so. It’ll be ready soon!

I’m off to continue piling through the books. See ya!

  2. Mind-maps?! When I was a kid, we had to get up at 10pm the previous night, two hours before we went to sleep, eat a lump of cold poison, work eighteen hours a day at mill for tuppence a year, pay the mill owner for permission to come to work, and when we got home our Dad would slice us in two with a big knife and jump up and down on our graves singin’ Allelujah.
