Directory Opus: file log

File log is visible when you invoke file search (ctrl-f for me), then choose Panel: File log.

For me, the log records operations as old as one year ago, which exposes too much privacy.

Go to Preference -> File Operation -> Log. I believe “Log file functions, at most” can be 500 events or les[……]

英语发音

越早的知识越容易错。

发音

w、z

我们以为w念作达不溜,其实是double u。[1]找一本你喜欢的字典(我喜欢用《高阶牛津英汉双解词典》),查一下w的音标,看看是不是/ˈdʌbljuː/,正是double /ˈdʌbl/ 加上 u /juː/。很高兴获得了一个新的知识——但这就是全部了吗?

生词本与字典解耦

以前我用金山词霸查单词,并使用金山词霸生词本。后来我改用灵格斯词典,但继续用金山词霸生词本记录单词。[1]现在,我用纸质版《牛津高阶英汉词典》、Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary以及付费的Oxford English Dictionary。这样的话,我该用哪个app记单词呢?

答案是(单词)列表与字典解耦呈现方式与列表解耦。有人推荐Anki很好,它是关于呈现方式的。我要的生词本,仅仅是一个有序列表。所以我用最简单的方式——一个txt文件。一行一个生词,足够清晰了。当它最终需要呈现时,可以用Anki,也可以手写到本子里。
