For comparison, here are a couple screenshots showing Homeworlds in progress on SDG without my Greasemonkey script active. The command form is so far away from the star map that you have to scroll completely away from one to see the other.

General Discussions / Online Sound Effect Generators

In one Greasemonkey script that I wrote, I use a little audio sound. I don't remember where I had found that specific string of text that generated the sound I use. Seems like there was an online sound maker that gave me the Base64 text string afterward. So now I'm looking for something like that again.

Here's one that I just found that seems similar the the one I remember from years ago, but not quite the same:

If more are found, please add links to others that are similar.

Blogs / Tips for Difficult Tasks
« Last post by Dragon on March 17, 2021, 18:35:26 »
I just read an article called Tips from neuroscience to keep you focused on hard tasks by David Badre that I think has some good suggestions - some things I've said before myself, and some things that I hadn't thought of before. I'm just going to put the summary here with some of my own thoughts or popular phrases, but I recommend reading the entire article on nature.com for all the details.

  • Make space
    • Set aside large blocks of time. (Rome wasn't built in a day.)
    • Be consistent. (Practice makes perfect.)
  • Minimize distraction and never multitask
    • Remove cues to other tasks. (It's easy to get side-tracked.)
    • Beware the allure of easy tasks. (Getting the little things done might feel good, but the big task is still out there.)
  • Engage in good problem-solving habits
    • Stay with it. (Don't give up.)
    • Be open to reconceptualizing problem structure. (Approach from a different angle.)
    • Take breaks. (All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.)
    • Interact with others. (Two heads are better than one.)
