Use Your Home Computer from Anywhere: A Comprehensive Guide to Remote Controlling Your PC

You May Be Able to Actually Make Yourself Smarter—All It Takes Is Practice I totally agree, but don't think that wikipedia-surfing is a good example, because you search for stuff that you want to know (or maybe easier to understand) while when reading a scrience book f.e. you have to read all the way through the article, even if some parts are harder to understand I tend to agree as well, but I've found that as someone who strives to learn almost to the exclusion of all else in my life, when that learning is severely depressed by any of a variety of factors, I'm encouraged to drink.
