Multiple Mini Reviews
« on: January 01, 2014, 04:51:05 PM »

May I suggest that we owe a vote of thanks to IainB for the past year of thorough, well-researched, and interesting mini reviews. These take a fair bit of time to assemble and have proved to be enlightening.

So, thanks IainB  :Thmbsup:

Thanks one and all. Recognition is always nice.
It's one thing to trial a piece of software or hardware, but the act of articulating a report or mini-review on the exercise reinforces the experience and promotes one's own learning.
I enjoy doing the mini-reviews, and they are often from my own working notes - or subsequently become my de facto working notes!
I habitually make notes about things that have occupied my interest/time in learning or discovery or problem-solving. Useful for when I forget what I learned and need to recall it...    :-[

If my notes or mini-reviews can be helpful/useful to someone, then that would be an ideal outcome.
I have lost count of the number of times that I have silently given thanks for notes left for posterity - detailing comments/thoughts/problem solutions, somewhere on the Internet - e.g., in forums such as DCF.

It seems to me that for a civilised society to remain civilized and free, knowledge and truth need to be communicated and remain free and accessible also.

Hmmm, if it was me, I'd take major offense to being called a minor deity.

I've been called a major pain, even though I've never been in the military.

That calls for corporal punishment!

Hmmm, one should avoid generalities.

I always wondered why the captains owned the bars.  They must make a fortune on liquor.
