    Wow, ME3 on the Xbox is 40 bucks at the Microsoft store with free UPS shipping (link) (note, you have to add it to your cart to see the price).

    I didn't want to pick it up until I finished my 2nd playthrough of ME2, but it's tempting.

    Bahaha. Waiting pays off! I was a little annoyed I had dragged my feet and didn't get it for $50 at Newegg but this is even better.

    Hmm

    no DLC though?

    ... ehhh whatever, I wasn't exactly chomping at the bit for it anyway. I think I can do $40.

    basically caveman there are several things

    a) if you believe that intelligence/talent are fixed, inherent qualities you will do less well at school than if you believe they are something you develop through hard work (literally - see carol dweck on this)
    b) if you are praised for achievement rather than effort, you will seek easy tasks that you can accomplish without much trouble in order to maintain the level of praise and avoid hard things (dweck again)
    c) if you are taught that failure is a "bad" thing then you will avoid things you find hard and it will take you much, much longer to fix the erroneous parts of your mind

    learning to learn is about coming to understand how to deal with being bad at things, how to repeat things you find hard that you keep failing at with the eventual goal of succeeding, how to appreciate the delayed gratification of overcoming your own limitations.

    the first thing i do with any of my students is teach them how to draw (unless they are pretty damn good already, but thats a small number of cases).

    i sit them down and ask them to draw a starkly lit face. when they have finished, i ask them how they feel about drawing, and their ability at it, and about talent and so on

    what i tend to find is that 90% of people believe they lack the "talent" for art, they are naturally bad, theres no point in them trying because they will never be good - they just lack the special art gene.

    then i tell them to draw the shadows, with a quick demonstration.

    their second drawing is normally unrecognisably better than the first. its almost absurd how dramatic the difference is. the most important thing is that they take something they believe they are terrible at, and suddenly understand that a simple perspective shift can result in dramatic improvements - and that what they had wrong before was the approach, not their mind.

    the point is to take them through the essential stages of learning while they are conscious of what it is they will actually be feeling at each stage. learning to learn is about being aware of your own emotional state, because you have to manage your frustration and interest and all these other things or you cannot do it. and this self-discipline is absolutely something that is learned and something that should be learned and i am astonished that schools spend so little time actually teaching people about learning.

    this this this

    note that a) still applies even if you are constantly told you are very intelligent/talented

    I always assumed I had no sense of rythm/sucked at music

    Rock Band 3 drums and to a lesser degree stepmania taught me that "no sense of rythm" is a kind of fake concept

    As a result I'm hoping to get myself a midrange ekit in the nearish future because apparently I'm half decent at it and I enjoy it quite a bit

    Well the DLC costs $10. It's on the same store. Search for it.

    the interactions from ashes adds throughout the game is worth it. It's not like kasumi or Zaeed where they really didn't have shit to say beyond their dlc

  • durandal4532durandal4532 Registered User regular
    Yeah but like

    if I'm spending $10, I'm spending it on my increasingly warren-like collection of weird indie games. Like I'd rather pick up Dustforce than a DLC character.

    Not that I wouldn't likely get more use out of DLC, with the way my free time restricts me to finishing on game a decade at the moment.

    Cool! Got the game and the DLC for $54 after tax. A lot better than $76!

    @mrflippy If you don't use those coupons, doesn't that just mean that the website gets to keep your dad's money for nothing?

    @Thanatos Yeah, but he almost surely didn't pay full price for them and I was reading about restaurants that weren't being compensated for the coupons. I'll probably end up using them but feeling bad about it. :?

    Does anyone know if Dropbox has an issue with multiple users logging into an account? The Powers That Be want a way for project members to upload files to a central space, but do not want people to have to set up their own account, and instead to use a single account name/password for everyone in the project to use.

    I would prefer the more kosher way of just having one person set up the central account, and then having everyone just get their own Dropbox password/account and setting up sharing to those people, which is much more secure, but whatevers.

    That works fine, I often run it on two computers at once with the same user. Haven't tried it with more than three, but in this case I'm betting that since it works with two there should be no problem with even more.

    So according to one of my friends, the university-wide grad student union at my old university had a general assembly during which the following votes took place:

    1. A vote reaffirming the legitimacy of the grad student union: defeated.
    2. A vote upholding a decision by the university-wide grad student union president to respect the sovereignty of departmental grad student unions: defeated.
    3. A vote declaring a general grad student strike: overwhelmingly passed.

    So this means that apparently students see their university-wide union as illegitimate but do not want it to respect the smaller departmental unions and are willing to obey its strike order.
