Reflecting upon the little model tonight, it occurs to be that although I took significant efforts to simplify the model down the the smallest thing possible, it was still too big. Not the model itself, but the question. It is a probably good question, “How do endometrial cells survive and reproduce outside of the uterus?”, […]

Looking for resources to help you maximize your learnings and minimize your time use is often fruitless. Publishing deadlines cut books short, real life gets in the author’s way, and personal preference, well there isn’t much you can do about that. In many ways, this book is an oddity.

The value add is that you know all of your files are saved and that your environment is in a fresh and known state. I came up with this: (defun gcr/sml-eval-buffer () "Intelligently […]
