How to Learn Even Faster

AHA!  I figured out how to cram even more into a day, lunch hour, etc.  Y’all may have known this - and if so, shame on you for not sharing – but Windows Media Player allows you to speed up playback up to x2, meaning that 20 minute tekpub video you’ve been meaning to watch will only take 10 minutes!  Here’s the steps:

For easy use, right-click the play button and select Fast Playback (ctrl shift g) (which is 1.4 x speed)

Or bring up the main right-click context menu and select Enhancements > Play speed settings

That will bring up a dialog that will allow you to fine tune the speed all the way up to 2x (I’ve found that to be like dialing up to 11, so I generally just settle on the easy approach).

Now, no excuse not to learn that new framework you’ve been thinking about.
