Did the preferences option ever get added?

Also, is there a way to edit tabs? Since I started habitcal, I've come up with slightly more clever names for the habits. If I delete and rename, will I lose the history?

Holes, by Louis Sachar

Reinhard, have you ever read the children's novel Holes, by Louis Sachar? It's about a boy who is sent to a juvenile detention center, "Camp Green Lake" in Texas, which is a dry lake bed. The boys are to dig 5-foot-deep, 5-foot-diameter hole daily. It made me think of Shovelglove. :)

I've been reviewing my high school math. I put a line on my personal punch card habit list for math. I have it on the Habitcal. It gets done. If I'm going somewhere where I'll have some time to fill, I'll bring my math book and notebook along. I've gotten through geometry and algebra 2 since August,...

Here's the system I eventually worked out:

Left column: to-do at home
Middle column: appointments and errands (outside of the house)
Right column: habits

It works well.

Shovelglove sub for suburbanites: turn the compost pile

If any shovelglovers out there have a compost pile, and you want to do something useful in place of shovelglove, that compost pile benefits from frequent turning.

I read a useful guideline in Home Comforts , a book about homemaking. In her chapter about meals, she says that traditionally, meals consist of three parts: one protein, one starch, and one or more fruits or vegetables. "The triad is primarily a social or traditional idea, secondarily a nutritional ...

I agree with wosnes. Some good fat is necessary in the diet. I think this is one reason why kids "need" to snack now when they didn't 40 years ago. Kids' diets had more fat in them back then, and so it was easier to wait until the next meal.

Reinhard, I love this idea. I have a digital recorder I've used to do oral history interviews of my grandparents, so I don't need to buy anything. (Also, some mp3 players, like the Sansa Fuze, have a digital recorder in there already.) I've always been a stronger writer than a speaker, and I usually...

A lot of people assume vegetarians or vegans don't get enough protein, but this is more due to a poor diet than being a vegetarian or vegan itself. I'd agree with that, Last time I went for accupuncture the therapist mentioned he'd observed that British vegetarians are often less healthy than India...

Everyday system mods for homemakers / stay-at-home parents?

Hi! I read a reference to the No S diet last week, and looked up this website. The diet sounded like common sense to me, but still a big change from my current eating habits, so I started it. I listened to the podcasts, and I think Reinhard's ideas about habit formation are enlightening and useful t...
