DSM-IV classification #s 314.00, 314.01 and 314.9 this post is for YOU.   Two important pieces of advice:

  1. Don’t read the article OCD and Perfection published at http://psychcentral.com/lib/ocd-perfectionism/00018006
  2. Given that you couldn’t resist NOT following the above point – Stop reading PsychCentral NOW- it’s been 3 shiny hours already!

If you must feed your cravings for shiny and still want to appear be productive (in your mind at least) try some data manipulation with the following data visualization and mining software. There’s colors and everything…..

using word – is too wordy

Doing your dissertation with Microsoft Word: a book review.

Thank you to the Thesis Whisperer for an honest review. I think I might just buy this book.  Only yesterday I was composing a poem to word..

WORD, stop THAT.

I didn’t want that there.

The period is meant to go over there.

Word, stop THAT.

Please word, can’t you cooperate

I have a deadline.

I just want to type.

WORD, stop THAT…

RIGHT,  NOW WORD… before I reformat you face!
