"Microsoft Mathematics 4.0 includes a full-featured graphing calculator. It’s designed to work just like those expensive handheld calculators and it’s optimized for algebra, trigonometry, statistics, and calculus. Additional math tools help you solve systems of equations, evaluate sides and angles in a triangle, and convert from one system of units to another. It also has a quick reference library of formulas commonly used in mathematics, chemistry, and physics." - LANjackal from Bookmarklet

"A difference of $3,000 might not sound like a lot, but consider that the salary increase not only continues year after year, but all future salary increases are based on that initial number. Say I average a five percent salary increase each year. Then that $4,000 quickly turns into $21,000 after six years. After 30 years, it becomes over $200,000! The difference becomes magnified further if you negotiate a higher salary each time you change jobs." - LANjackal from Bookmarklet

"focus on small blocks of time with a focus on realistic output. In addition to limiting the total amount of time you spend working (and recognizing the limitations of how much work you can do in the process), focus on limiting the size of your individual blocks of work. If you sit down in front of a task with an open-ended schedule like "I need to finish this entire project by the end of the day", you're setting yourself up for a bout of procrastination. In the mind of a procrastinator, the end of the business day is practically in the next century. Instead say "I have 30 minutes to work before I must take a small break to relax. What can I realistically accomplish in 30 minutes?" - LANjackal from Bookmarklet

Create a Calendar to Keep Track of Important Past Dates, Not Just Future Ones

"Most popular flight search engines are cluttered, full of text, and difficult to understand at a glance. Hipmunk takes the most important flight information you'd get at any flight search engine—travel time, layovers, price—and organizes it into an actually useful visual (rather than all-text) interface. (It's sort of like a Gantt chart for flights.) Click on any flight for a closer look at the full details." - LANjackal from Bookmarklet
