Spaced repetition

When should one review? In the morning? In the evening? Any old time? The studies demonstrating the spacing effect do not control or vary the time of day, so in one sense, the answer is: it doesn’t matter – if it did matter, there would be considerable variance in how effective the effect is based on when a particular study had its subjects do their reviews.So one reviews at whatever time is convenient. Convenience makes one more likely to stick with it, and sticking with it overpowers any temporary improvement.If one is not satisfied with that answer, then on general considerations, one ought to review before bedtime & sleep. Memory consolidation seems to be related, and sleep is known to powerfully influence what memories enter long-term memory, strengthening memories of material learned close to bedtime and increasing creativity; interrupting sleep without affecting total sleep time or quality still damages memory

Linux 4.9 is out

 Linus Torvalds To:
 Linux Kernel Mailing List Subject:
 Linux 4.9Date:
 Sun, 11 Dec 2016 12:50:25 -0800Message-ID:
So Linux 4.9 is out, and the merge window for 4.10 is thus open.

With the extra week for 4.9, the timing for the merge window is
obviously a bit awkward, and it technically closes in two weeks on
Christmas Day. But that is a pure technicality, because I will
certainly stop pulling on the 23rd at the latest, and if I get roped
into xmas food prep, even that date might be questionable.

I could extend the merge window rather than cut it short, but I’m not
going to. I suspect we all want a nice calm winter break, so if your
stuff isn’t ready to be merged early, the solution is to just not
merge it yet at all, and wait for 4.11. Just so you all know (I
already bcc’d the main merge

Access Ext2, HFS and other file systems with DiskInternals Linux Reader

DiskInternals Linux Reader is a freeware Windows application for browsing drives using Linux, Apple and other file systems. The program enables reading (but not writing) drives using Ext2/3/4, ReiserFS, Reiser4, HFS, HFS+, FAT, exFAT, NTFS, ReFS and UFS2. It’s also possible to mount and read raw disk images (*.dsk, *.img) and assorted virtual disk formats (*.vmdk, *.vhd, *.vhdx, *.vdi, *.vds). There’s no general Windows file system driver included, unfortunately, so mounted drives won’t appear inside Explorer: they’re only accessible from inside the program. DiskInternals Linux Reader opens with a list of your current partitions and drives. We tried double-clicking one… [Continue Reading]

Users Told Disconnect Certain Netgear Routers

Some popular Netgear routers contain a security flaw that is evidently easy to exploit and can make users vulnerable to a CSRF attack.

Breaking News

About this time I’m wondering if I’d even purchase a Netgear router.
You’d think that with all of the fuss recently about the insecure Internet of things, especially when it comes to routers, that any router maker would be on top of it and patching vulnerabilities as soon as they’re discovered.
Evidently not, as far as Netgear is concerned.
On Friday, a researcher with the online handle Acew0rm published a vulnerability that the U.S. CERT Coordination Center (CERT/CC) at Carnegie Mellon University has rated as “critical,” giving it a score of 9.3 out of 10 using the Common Vulnerability Scoring System. Over the weekend, Netgear confirmed the vulnerability, saying that its R7000, R6400 and R8000 routers were possibly vulnerable. However, PCWorld has reported that another researcher has looked into the

Windows support and improved Linux support

We are very excited to announce that we now support Windows – and we’re also shipping a first-class Linux version:

We moved from child_pty to pty.js – they’re both great libraries to interact with a pseudo terminal, but just the latter supports Windows – 3384442 – [Thanks @tyriar]
We rewrote the UI for the tabs in order for them to work with Electron’s constraints on Windows and Linux – f8a8da6 – [@CodeTheory]
We added a hamburguer menu so the application menu can be easily accessed – [@CodeTheory + @evilrabbit]
Check #946 and #1058 for more info

Improved internationalization and foreign keyboards support

We are shipping a fix for a very common issue: if you’re using a foreign keyboard, such as Portuguese, Norwegian, Swedish etc, you weren’t able to type some characters like á, ä, ~ and so on. That’s not the case anymore!

We inject a hyper-caret div with
