For some reason I played a lot of computer games this last year -- there were many good ones.

Mouser's Top 5 Favorite Computer Games Played in 2013



ps. I use Web Link Captor to automatically find and add web links to a plain text list and format the output.

Heh well since Mouser didn't specify "lists of what", I posted my "top three projects" over as Proto-Nany components!

Not organised enough in terms of reading or viewing to easily give a best-of list.

So,
I went through CHS and searched for quotes I had copied from mouser's PopUpWisdom this year - and picked out 10. Think they all from the "Philosophy" book.
Tbh, I'm unsure of this idea - lists of quotes can often be very kitschy and/or moralistic/idealistic/unrealistic I find :-[ - but will try to avoid all that (and stfu) and let you read:

# A neighbor came to Nasrudin, asking to borrow his donkey.  "It is out on loan," the teacher replied.  At that moment, the donkey brayed loudly inside the stable.  "But I can hear it bray, over there."  "Whom do you believe," asked Nasrudin, "me or a donkey?"
[I always have to smile at this one]

# Go outside. Shut the door.
[when this one pops up, I mostly do go outside - and it usually helps]

# Breathe more deeply

# You must be the change you wish to see in the world.
--Mahatma Gandhi
[may come across as a bit clicheed, but that one does get me thinking (what/why/how/whatever)]

# Standards are different for all things, so the standard set by man is by no means the only 'certain' standard.  If you mistake what is relative for something certain, you have strayed far from the ultimate truth.
-- Chuang Tzu

# Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you.
-- Jean-Paul Sartre
[in the 'free world', this makes sense to me - might not under other cirumstances, I dunno]

# Perfection is reached, not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.
-- Antoine de Saint-Exupery
[I really do believe there is a lot of truth in this one]

# "It's today!" said Piglet.
"My favorite day," said Pooh.
[Yaah! :p]

# Facts are the enemy of truth.
-- Don Quixote
[must read that book sometime]

# If there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life.
-- Albert Camus
[maybe a bit heavy to end with - but it can be an easy thing to do...]


aaaand as a bonus -
the kitchiest quote from the 'book':
The soul would have no rainbow had the eyes no tears
 - if that doesnt draw a tear to your eyes, be grateful ;-)
