I can’t seem to find any way to import the bib entries provided by google scholar to JabRef directly. You can enable the Import into BibTex link from the preferences but it streams the bib file as text/plain which opens up in the browser. You can save it and import it but that wastes a lot of clicks. The easiest option is to copy-paste all the text into a new JabRef entry (Ctrl+N). The default settings leave the double curly braces in the title (to preserve case) which can be removed by enabling the Remove double braces… checkbox in the File tab of Options/Preferences. This works for JabRef 2.5.
Since I’ll be staying here for a while, it’s probably better to try and keep myself in practice. Sohail has planned at least two failed trips to Cambridge and from the looks of it, I wasn’t going to get my acoustic any soon. Besides, it’s probably a good idea to poke the rocker inside me a bit and switch to something more err… current. Thus this cheap throw-away(?!) Encore from Amazon. I’ve only just tuned it and as far as I can see, it’s worth the money. The package includes 3 pickups, a stand, tuner, 10W amp and sundry things. The amp has a crispy tone but I’ll check it out in detail may be tomorrow (when P(flatmates_sleeping)<0.3). It’s a bit lighter than most guitars I’ve used and I’m still not sure whether to count it as a con or not.
for now, I’ll strum the night away…
(while reading some paper and a half a thesis… *sigh*)
and thus no blogging. Now that I have a break from
the MPhil supervisions (or demonstrations), I might get back to my paper reading routine. In other news, the weather has chilled down to ‘extra cool’ and going out without a cap in the bag is a bad bad idea. Sunshine as seen below, is a rarity. *sigh*
