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'm interested in improving my memory, primarily: remembering people's names for several weeks after I meet them, and remembering conversational details for a few days after any given conversation.
My short term memory is great; I can typically be introduced to a dozen or so new people at a party and get them all right the next morning (if I was paying attention). However, I won't remember any of their names three days later.
Has anyone bought into any of the many memory improvement programs out there and actually seen results? Or should I save my money and just practice writing down/repeating the things I want to memorize and attempt to work out some system on my own?
