Decided to invest in Volumes 1 & 2 CCNA CERT GUIDE

Visible to anyone in the world

Highly recommend these ‘ Wendell Odom’ guides.

Makes reviewing and testing yourself very easy.

I also like the books sometimes more than reading from the Netcad site.

MOS Excel and PowerPoint Associate Certification (Passed)

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by George Muirhead, Tuesday, 30 Aug 2022, 17:04

After having my holidays in Edinburgh and Pitlochry, It done me the world of good reframing my mental perspective.

Sat both PowerPoint and Excel MOS certification and passed both.

I have found that breaking my study sessions up with learning Favela (Grade 6) drum-kit piece helped me to focus better , I have become obsessed with the samba Rhythm and samba funk, my favourite part is the keyboard solo section a fantastic arrangement!

Hopefully I will have the opportunity to do the Excel Expert in the coming weeks!

Cisco Cloud Security Course 2022

Visible to anyone in the world

I've decided to delve into the 'above' course. 

I have found that its difficult to listen to the content all the way through.

There is a lot of information being concisely packed into his sentences.

I'm making brief notes, I am for the most part not really understanding as much as I would like to.

This is day three.

Module results 2021!

Visible to anyone in the world
Well, after a long wait, I recieved my results, I was very relieved to have passed both smile!

M250 exam I didn't prepare enough for and only had a week to do so. 

I did love the module though, it's always about time pressure for me and that is a frustration. 

Not enough time to think and absorb concepts. 

I am really excited about studying the next modules in October 2021.

Learning

Visible to anyone in the world

Identify what the margin of error is , narrow the view, soda straw view of the information, 
it cannot be too big , breakdown.

Fail, link failing with dopamine.
Actually learning does not take place when you are conscious. 
Learning takes place when you are asleep.
The feeling of frustration is what you want.
Flow is just what you know already, it's not learning.
Failing is learning. 
Fail and Fail fast.

Visible to anyone in the world

Made my first entries in my TT284 project diary today and proceeded to 'get on' with the tasks in my WBS. 

Love the project management side of things, I can now see why and where I was going wrong in the past. 

Things need to be continually adjusted and controlled. 

It makes me very excited about making progress and leveraging the digital tools I have at my disposal!

The most single important piece of text I’ve come across!


“Similar to the code for obtaining the file from the image file input, a ‘load’ event object has a target property referring to the object that triggered the event, i.e. the FileReader object. This in turn has a result property which will contain the data read from the file. This will be a data URL, so we can assign it to the src property of the image element to make it appear on the page.”


What does this mean?

It means the file reader object has a result property.

Receiver : the object to which the message is sent. Message-send: the code that sends a message to an object - for example frog1.right(); which consists of the receiver followed by a full stop and then the message.

" Remember, it is the dumb, novelty-seeking portion of the brain driving the limbic system that induces this feeling of pleasure, not the planning, scheduling, higher-level thought centres in the prefrontal cortex. Make no mistake: email-, Facebook- and Twitter-checking constitute a neural addiction "
