Reconstructing The Paper Crane

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 11 March 2014 · 356 views

One day many moons ago, my friend came over to our house as he usually did when he didn't have homework. He brought with him this paper crane. It was the most amazing thing I had ever seen. I just kept starring at it, marveling. So I asked him how he made it. He would not tell me how to make it. I asked him again, but he said no.

I was confused. It seeme...


I'm not going to forget how to Program.

programming
When I was in school, I was a bit slower than others to catch on to something, but when I did, I had it. Most of the time I was churning things in my head, moving it around, diagnosing it. So, I would do poorly in the course more than likely, and then at the end of the course I would have the "Eureka."

I think the education system does not work in an op...


Good help is VERY hard to find.

help
I know a lot of people can relate. I see it on health sites and on programming sites, and on every single forum.

Someone is in dire need of help and you get all these extremely annoying replies.

Some guy thinks it is absurd to ever need help and says, "google it."

Another thinks that they can solve everything and knows nothing, and gives you a wild g...


Now it's time to DO IT!(start programming)

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 26 February 2014 · 407 views

Okay, I have made a lot of inquiries, but I haven't been programming a lot. Just been gathering information I thought would be useful. That's why I have been posting the topics I have. Rather than post "help with my homework) posts, I have been posting discussion topics. Trying to feel out the industry.

So I am going to use this site from now till whenev...

forum, community
So, when I am on this site, I am a total noob, but on this other site they think I am a genius. hehe.

I like being right in-between though. I can learn from the best and brightest and take what I learn, decipher it, make it simple, and share it with the common folk. And we all know I am one of the "common folk."

I am on a new path, one that I think wil...


Albert Einstein thought like me

Einstein, Albert, thinking
I have always had thus idea, that if you can't mask something easy for a little child to understand, you reall can't teach.

Today I found a quote by Albert Einstein;

“If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
― Albert Einstein

The other day, I was thinking how easy it is to have complex information, but how hard it...


Your game is a dime a dozen

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 03 February 2014 · 520 views
Unique, game
Found this definition:

A dime is a small amount of money. A dozen is 12 items.
When something or someone is described as being a dime a dozen it literally means that you can get lots of them for a small amount of money. - ie There are plenty more like them about. (the person or item is not unique.)

How does this make me feel?

Like crap.

How does one...


I'll always be a novice

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 31 January 2014 · 402 views
novice, noob, beginner
I always consider myself a novice at things, because I am always learning new things, and always assume my understanding or skill level is always inferior to the many possible advancements I could make in the future.

So I have been calling myself a beginner in computer programming, though that may not be entirely true, but I know that my skill set is inf...


Gonna try out Mind Mapping

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 30 January 2014 · 377 views
mind, mapping, idea, sketch and 1 more...
So, I had been browsing a good app to help me make an outline, couldn't find one. Passed over a few mind mapping apps, but they looked like high school projects I had to do.

Fast forward a few months, and I am literally making a mind map to record my ideas, but not considering that I am using what I thought was useless to do it.

So I sorta re-discovered...


Programmers talk "Alien"

Posted by Tutorial Doctor, 29 January 2014 · 537 views
programmer, langauge, hard
A little frustrated because just browsing through forum posts on any programming website full of competent programmers sounds like alien talk.

I mean, do you really have to abbreviate english? See so many topics that sound like the person is speaking in a broken english-like JAVA.You don't use terminology that requires specific knowledge when you are ma...
