I have had that problem too. (confusing Tuesday and Thursday ). Which one comes first.
I learned it by imagining Thursday as "First Day" (it kinda sounds like that) and then imagine it's lying to me.

I remember using similar technique as a small child learning the weekdays in danish. Funny enough it was also about which of Tuesday and Thursday comes first.
Torsdag (Thursday) kinder sounds like "to'er dag" which means "number 2 day". So that's how i learned that Torsdag comes after Tirsdag (Tuesday).

Just spend half and hour trying to convert a corrupted .MOV file.
Used 3 different converting tools before i checked if the file itself was the problem.
That's what you get with 5 hours sleep.

It's kinda easier to remember it in sequence, so rather than remembering the individual words "Monday", "Tuesday" etc... "Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday..."

Like, I couldn't tell you how many letters into the alphabet that "k" is until I count through them, and I was born in the UK and only know English!

For those programmers amongst you, remember the words as an array, and not as individual strings

You are right, but the technique above still helped me when i wasn't that good at speaking English yet.

That's actually a problem in a different scale for multi-lingual people like B.E. and myself. I haven't reached the point to use English naturally in full like I do my mother tongue Arabic so in some cases I see myself connecting the English word with the Arabic one to know what it is. Days have exact corresponding translations unlike letters so it is kinda different for me. I can use English letters naturally.

Oh, and I don't know the Arabic alphabet sequence

I love the snow. But that's probably because I'm from a country that rarely gets any! I imagine the novelty would soon wear off if it snowed all the time!

Helped a friend out with removing viruses over Windows Remote Assistance and Malwarebytes was able to pickup 34. Avast, Adwcleaner didn't do much. There was this one called DNSUnlocker that I was puzzled on how to remove then I got CCleaner and that seemed to do the job. Took about 3 hours all up.

Good job. A friend of an elderly gentleman (I work on his computer every now and again) wanted me to clean his up. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago... and then work slammed me. I finally called him up and dropped it back off this morning as I haven't even had time to hook it up to a monitor. I don't think it is infected but rather bogged down with crap he has allowed on it. Maybe someday...
