It has been a long time since I posted here, and I wanted to rectify that today. September to November is always our busiest season at work, and I am also mid-term with my course at JCU. Relaxation has been rare and difficult, usually consisting of a few moves in online chess games, or a Saturday night out.
Being busy is strange. There is a certain point at which I am maximally productive. If I am less busy than this point, then I do not fully engage in my work and don't have those flashes of insight that come from really working a problem. On the other hand, past that point, I spend too much time figuring out how I'm going to get all of my work done to get any of my work done.
I suppose, like everything else, that balance is the key.
Random thoughts from my notebook this week:
- Why does my DI-514 Wireless Access point need to be rebooted daily to keep up wireless connections?
- Is Bode's Law a resonance effect? Can we apply such an effect to predict the orbits of small extrasolar planets from the orbits of large one?
