Howto Mirror a website with wget

Sometimes you find a website that is just awesome, and you want a local copy of it. Here is how you do it:

wget -mkEpnp -w 3 $H='Accept-Language: en-us,en;q=0.5' \
$H='Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8' \

Math Notes – Project: From zero to hero.

As I’ve mentioned before, I am a 6th grade dropout, not only that but I was “homeschooled” for most of my elementary school years, so my math abilities are pretty non-existent. To correct this problem, I have started studying mathematics; from zero. Here is where I will put my notes.

Behold the power of 0

Something that was pointed out by Scott Flansburg: 0 is a number. No really – it’s not nothing – it’s something. Programmers, often, start counting at zero, but you’d be amazed how your mind changes when you get rid of 10, and start counting at 0. Don’t count: 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10! Instead, start at 0 and count like this: 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9.

Once you do that, you notice that counting is circular!

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0 1 2

The Most Important Thing To Remember

This is the simplest rule in learning. It is the most important rule. Yet it is the one almost everyone forgets, or doesn’t even know.

Never banalize information!

Never say: “I won’t use this?” Never say: “I’m just learning this to pass a test.” Never say: “Once I’m done with this, I’m going to forget it.” Because if you do, you’ll never remember it in the first place.

The Von Restorf effect tells us that unique or strange things are easy to remember. But more powerful than that is: relevant things are the easiest to remember.

Make learning it fun!

The best way to make something relevant, is to make it pleasant and pleasurable. People love joy. People love being happy, having a good time, seeing something funny. How often have you come out of a movie that you laughed at, and you’re able to quote your favorite jokes?
