This Week I Learned 2019 - Week 03

Last week post or something else instead.

What else I learned this week in separate posts? The third week of ornamental fish culture MOOC on quality characteristics determination on GoldfishKoi and DiscusAngelfish and schooling fish. Continue with literature review on paper of feeding frequency effects on Betta fish growth and fecundity. The week was concluded with a review of MP3::Daemon Perl's module.

What is the best written comment I've read this year? Motivation and willpower is not sustainable compare to just chop wood and carry water. Just do things (as quoted below), one step (or 5 minutes) at a time. However, do check for any health issues. Be kind to yourself. Move, sleep, and eat well.
One day, you will be dead. Each year that passes after your death, fewer and fewer people will remember who you were, what you did or what your face looked like. Eventually, you'll be completely forgotten. Who cares if that side project you put out sucked or not. Might as well put it out there and see what people think. There's a good chance too that the project won't even be remembered even by the time you die.
The best way to get experience is to do things, so given that no one is going to remember, might as well try to do it. Your successes won't be remembered along with your failures.
Should you dump unwanted pet fish into the river? Definitely no. The Amazon sailfin catfish (also known locally as DBKL fish), which is not an indigenous species, have invade our local rivers, ponds, or lakes. The bigger issue is that most people don't know or don't want to euthanize (humanely dispose) of unwanted pet fishes but revert to aquarium dumping instead. Perhaps, sell back these fishes to fish stores or donate to other hobbyist. If all these fail, just use Clove oil.

How does fish farm in SG looks like? Let Ah Hua tells you.



How to breed shrimp? The most important lesson from the video is not about breeding shrimp, but understanding water parameters and maintaining good water quality. Rare we stumbled upon good video in YouTube on breeding fish.



Is luck real? Not really, is only one of many external factors in life as in what they say, "lucks favour the prepared mind". Choose personal empowerment (focus on who you are, choose your own race, and love what you do). Accept those ideas that growth you and reject those which drag you down.

How do you organize everything you want to do? Regardless what system you've implemented, the system should be simple and easy for constant repeated review. Complex system discourage usage and reviewing. Without reviewing, there will be no awareness on the progress on your to-do list, hence stagnance of what you've planned to do.

If not SICP, then what? Maybe HTDP? (via HN) The endless argument on why SICP is not the right entry material for those who want to venture into computer science or software engineering and HTDP is probably a better choice instead.
