Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I have a lot of home projects that I tend to start and then drop due to overwhelming distractions. (Often by starting another project). I was told at work that If I used some mind mapping software it can really help pinning down all of my projects and I will be come much more productive. I was recommended "Freemind" and so I gave it a shot...
Wow, what on earth is this thing?
I'm not "getting" this. I looked at some tutorials and all they do is draw bubbles and lines and how you how to move nodes around. I mean, I can move nodes and make bubbles and put on icons but I'm not seeing how this is helpful in any way for task management or even basic note taking. (and there is a guy I know who swears by this application). I asked around and heard it can be used from anything from outlining a novel to project management(!?) really? I'm also hard pressed to see any "real word" examples. I just see maps that reference other generic references.
Computers -> Microsoft -> (list of MS applications each with it's own node) goes on one branch
Computers-> Java -> (Sub-nodes into links, debugging, windows launcher, etc, etc) goes on another
Where's the "stuff"? Where are the tables and actual data? The system seems awful "rabbit hole-ish" of abstract fluffiness with no meat. Can someone explain this?
