Lifehacks

Post by Tan » Wed Sep 23, 2015 4:19 pm

A thread for stupid life-improvements.

Today I start with these 20 Cognitive Biases That Screw Up Your Decisions (from Lifehacker).

Note: some of these apply to raid-centric decisions, but many do not. For example, we try to go for strategies that are repeatable for purposes of reliability, not because we have a zero-risk bias.

Canned air is wasteful and the cost adds up. Clean out electronics with a leaf-blower. I recommend one with an adjustable output, particularly while working with delicate hardware.

If you don't own one, odds are somebody who you know does. Just borrow it every month or so and do your routine computer cleaning.

Absurd as this sounds, I actually do it.

I use an 8HP dog dryer for cleaning out PCs/etc. It's very effective, just make sure you obstruct all the fans, because it will over-rev them and can damage the bearings.

I actually just hold up my open computer to a nearby taking off helicopter. It does the job very quickly.
