My almost-5-yo Macbook needs power adapter to be replaced this morning.
Phew. The macbook has gone through many things during the gradschool. What a long journey.
The desk and dust entropy has been reduced to 10-20% 🙂
Clean and simple, just books
The snapshots of my horror working desks.
Along with the increasing desk entropy, so does my absentmindedness. I lost many important books, important papers, kids’ books, kids’ drawings, and often find it at unpredictable places. This is also happen with my digital data. I have many backups but with a lot of redundant folders and files, unsynchronized. Have to fix this chaotic life very soon (after a graduate, if I ever. I also write about gradschool life preparation here).

I took a course on Information Theory years ago when I was taking master degree and completely forgot about everything when I need to learn it quickly to use the theory to support my arguments for an cryptographic issues.
I read some books that only caused more desperation, so I decided to google some introductions about information theory, and find these brilliant video tutorials:
Sometimes video tutorial seems to offer more advantages to me than reading textbooks. It’s easier to understand and does not cause dizziness or sleepiness, ha ha ah. OK now I have enough understanding to continue on writing next publication, and using information theory as one of the arguments. Yay 🙂
