我如何安排时间(译自陶哲轩博客)- (转载自Liu,Xiaochuan的博客)

April 3, 2011 Leave a comment

(原文:On time management by Terry Tao)(译文原稿来自这里

受到一些评论的鼓励,我最终决定在这里写一些关于如何安排时间的建议。其实,我有这个打算已经一段时间了,可是就我自己的情况而言,这方面也还在做着探索(读者应该看看我等着写的论文排了多少!)而且很多想法未必成熟。(已经有一些经验写在advice on writing papers,比如page on rapid prototyping)而且,我的一些个人经验恐怕也不能对所有人通通适用,因为每个人都有不同的性格类型以及工作状态。欢迎大家把自己的想法啊,经验啊,或者建议在评论中写出来。(其实,即使我自己的经验,我有时候也不能严格的遵照,挺遗憾的。)

这些经验并不系统,我慢慢的叙述如下。首先,我足够的幸运,自己的很多优秀的合作者都在我们合作的工作中付出了大量的心血。比如最近我的博客大家看到的论文,很多都在很大的程度上是我的合作者们辛勤劳作的成果。一般来讲,我觉得几个人合作的时候,虽然常常要花费的时间要多一些,但是每个人实际花费的力气却令人吃惊的少,而文章的质量却更高。我发现自己可以同时与很多人在不同的工作中合作(因为常常他们为主,或者该工作实际上在等待进一步发展。)可是在我独自写论文的时候,我却只能同时只做一件工作。

Finding Parking

April 1, 2011 Leave a comment

Finding a parking meter or parking garage for short term parking can be painful, here are some good websites I found, especially useful for parking in Boston.

  • Primo Spot is so far one of the best websites providing both on-street parking and garage parking information, but it only covers NYC, Boston and Seattle.
  • Boston Parking can calculate the parking rates by locations and hours
  • Parkopedia shows the types of parking on google map
  • Parking Carma gives list of garage parking with daily and hourly rates
  • Parking Spotter mainly lists daily or monthly parking information.
  • Parkwhiz (this lists more of daily parking)
