Tool Fixated

When rolling around in a force-on-force scuffle in a class like ECQC, you can sometimes see people get "tool fixated". You will see, for instance, someone get completely fixated on the task of clearing a malfunction in a Simunitions Glock that choked when they tried firing it with the other person's hand around the slide, or perhaps obsessively trying to wrench a Sims gun away from their opponent.While they're doing this, they lose awareness of the entirety of the situation and their opponent is...

How to Close the macOS Terminal Automatically When a Process Exits

If you’re a fan of shell scripts in macOS, you’ve probably noticed how running one will leave you with a useless Terminal window after it’s completed. You can fix this from the Terminal settings. This method only works if you’re launching a shell script outside of bash, such as by clicking on it in Finder or by setting a custom hotkey to open the program. Otherwise, you’ll just be taken back to the command prompt. You can always use killall Terminal to make the Terminal app close itself from wi...

At least in Green Book, jazz is high art

I’m anxiously awaiting the release of Bolden, a film about the New Orleans cornettist Buddy Bolden (1888 – 1933) who may actually have invented jazz. But since Bolden will not be released until May, and since April is Jazz Appreciation Month, now is a good time to talk about the cultural capital that jazz has recently acquired, at least in that multiply honored film, Green Book. As is often the case when a film is honored lavishly, however, Green Book has run up against a backlash. If nothing el...

I sat down for some reading this a.m. with my Voyage and was greeted with an announcement about an addition to my Kindle as well as NO BOOKS!! Amazon has added a feature to have read and unread books sorted so that you can choose to blank out all your unread books. After fiddling a bit, I fixed it so my books showed up, but it will take some time to get the read and unread sorted out (I have over 1000 books in the cloud).

Get your gardening groove back with these nine tips. 1. Start with a clean slate There are two kinds of flower beds: those that have been well-prepared and those that are covered in weeds.

When Can Headphones and Earbuds Damage Your Hearing?

Gang Liu/Shutterstock Conversations about headphone-induced hearing loss have faded away, but headphones and earbuds still post a serious risk to your ears. How loud is too loud, and how do you protect your ears without giving up music? The Threshold for Hearing Damage is 85 dB Most doctors agree that 85 dB is the threshold for hearing damage. After repeated long term exposure to sounds at or above 85 dB, you can expect to experience some hearing loss or tinnitus. And while you’d probabl...

I love it when one of my food magazines is so good I want to cook my way through the issue from cover to cover. is just such a winner.

I made three recipes from the magazine this week and marked a bunch more to try. All of the recipes I mention here can be found on the Eating Well website (follow the links), but I sha...

Should You Still Buy a Guidebook for Europe? Yes.

I’ll be the first to point out this irony: I started EuroCheapo, a budget travel website, back in 2001, and yet I still love traveling around Europe with a guidebook.

Websites, like the one you’re reading right now, are a fabulous platform for trip planning. You can “get educated” about the logistics, find the best deals (especially for hot...

WinRAR contains a flaw that would let a .RAR file you download automatically extract an .exe file to your Startup folder.

Lake House: Winter Work and Spring Plans

Remember how I was on a cabinet building kick a few months ago? My energy level–and that magical ability to knock together a cabinet on a whim using nothing but some scrap wood and a bottle of wine–came to an abrupt halt at the end of January, because that’s the infuriating thing that happens when it’s legitimately negative forty degrees out. I mean… that sucked. I wasn’t completely ready to give up on cabinets though, so over the last couple of months I have very slowly pieced together a coup...
