Deliberate Note-Taking

I recently read this book called “How to Take Smart Notes”. As the title suggests, the book is largely about taking notes. I came to find that it is about more than that. The note-taking is just a means to an end. The note-taking technique that the author discusses is a way to make you a more effective reader and writer.

What I learned in this book is that to really be reading effectively, you have to be taking deliberate notes. Underlining, scribbling in the margins, and copying down quotes do not provide the same benefits as taking deliberate notes.


OpenHantek6022 is a DSO software for Hantek USB digital signal oscilloscopes 6022BE/BL.



A digital oscilloscope interface for Android. I’m planning on trying its Hantek 6022BE support. While OpenHantek6022 is working just fine for me, this is an option to save desk space.


xa is a high-speed, two-pass portable cross-assembler. It understands mnemonics and generates code for NMOS 6502s (such as 6502A, 6504, 6507, 6510, 7501, 8500, 8501, 8502 …), CMOS 6502s (65C02 and Rockwell R65C02) and the 65816.

This looks to be packaged on Ubuntu as xa65.
