Optical image stabilization is one feature to consider when purchasing a digital camera; it can make a world of difference when shooting handheld in low light. #MondayMemo

When photographing events and dynamic subjects in general, do not concern yourself too much with technical parameters or you may miss a good shot. #MondayMemo

Seeing as there is a BCH fork on Sunday, there is no better time than now to withdraw any BCH you may have on custodial services. #MondayMemo

When composing photographs, a good rule to follow is the rule of thirds. Composition can be improved by drawing focus to subjects where two grid lines interact. #MondayMemo

Experiment with the block size when using dd. A well-chosen block size will significantly improve copy speeds and save you time, especially if you have a batch of disks to work with. #MondayMemo

Before wiping a disk, make sure to check thoroughly for any important files you might want to save. There is nothing worse than suddenly remembering you forgot a file in the middle of wiping. #MondayMemo

The best way to prepare for a test is by studying well in advance; that way you can learn little by little every day and reinforce what you have learned instead of unnecessarily overloading your brain. #MondayMemo

When scanning documents and photographs for archival purposes, use the highest optical resolution your scanner can support and either an uncompressed or losslessly compressed image file format (e.g. TIFF). #MondayMemo

Nothing breaks the monotony of a terminal like an ASCII cow (or penguin) to greet you with fortune quotes. #MondayMemo

Academic memo: if you need to obtain a textbook, insist on either an electronic copy or a used one in very good condition at the very least so you can easily resell or redistribute it. #MondayMemo

Good to know. Have you been using Tails for a long time?

There is still a good deal to explore on Tails, such as setting up encrypted persistence, but judging from my first

Tails is actually quite easy to use and has a decent selection of software preinstalled; GNOME 3 surprisingly hasn't annoyed me. As far as restrictions are concerned, there are a few

After postponing the act for a long time, I have finally decided to download and try out Tails. It was satisfying to see how security is prioritized all the way from startup to shutdown. #MondayMemo

Learn to control your emotions, especially if they are negative. Negative emotions have the potential to wreak havoc on you and others around you if left unchecked. #MondayMemo

One versatile tool one should have and know how to use is dd. Apart from using it to create disk images, you can also use it to erase and benchmark disks as well as manipulate files. #MondayMemo

When possible, confront problems instead of avoiding them, even if they seem trivial. Trivial problems can easily become significant ones if you allow them. #MondayMemo

Challenge yourself whenever you can. Not only does this relieve boredom, but it also encourages creativity and gives one a greater sense of achievement. #MondayMemo

Know your audience when writing software documentation. When in doubt, it helps to include a glossary and explain concepts which may be unfamiliar to users. #MondayMemo

Portability is a virtue in programming. Generally a portable program will be far more resilient and capable of standing the test of time than one which is designed with only one platform in mind. #MondayMemo

Dividing a program into functions is handy when it comes to debugging. Once you comment out a function call or two, it becomes far easier to identify bugs and fix them. Printing out variables helps, too. #MondayMemo
