Announcing: Supermemo Adventures Issue 01

Sorry for the dearth of updates, I've been fairly busy lately.

In my ideal world, after reading or listening to any news story, there would be an option: "Would you like to download flashcards based on the events you just listened to/read about?" Although I cannot fill that need, I can do something along those lines: Along with my [ir]regular posting, I could periodically release small collections of flashcards containing interesting information. "Why not give that a try?" I wondered.

Thus, as an experiment I'm posting this first "issue" of Supermemo Adventures: Issue 1

I enjoy staying up to date with current events, so this first "issue" is kind of news-focused. I'm not trying to further a cause or promote a political candidate/party/etc. If you find a flashcard that you think promotes something you don't agree with, delete it (Hopefully you won't ever delete a flashcard for that reason, though).

I will try to keep the flashcards rich with interesting photos and artwork, but this will (hopefully) not adversely affect the learning process. Many pictures will only be shown when the answer is shown, so this will rule out certain pictures becoming an unconscious "trigger" for remembering the answer. Think of it as giving a personal, "zine" like touch to information. Each issue should contain less than 50 cards (This database contains 39, I think).

Anyways, let's see what happens: Issue 1 (Again)
Let me know what you think of it :)

Blog is back

Sorry for the temporary down-time.
A few things needed being sorted out, and now they are done. Hopefully there won't be any down-time any time soon.
