I've found that it's still just easier to file in manila folders by month. I rarely ever need to pull paper documents out anymore, but if I do need them they are there and I've got only one month of stuff to sort through. I tried scanning everything and backing up locally for about two months but dropped that method when crunch time at work rolled around.

After playing a few of these mind games that rely on 'concentrate harder to move forward, move backward if you lose concentration' interfaces is that I can't help but think how easy it would be to fix the games.

Think about it, if the movement of the on screen character was following a fixed path that had nothing to do with your brain waves, you would be lulled into a false sense of confidence early on, believing that your brain waves moved the character. Then, as the fixed path brought it back, you would instantly question whether or not you had lost concentration, which in itself would be losing concentration!
