A printer uses heat to melt the filament then extrudes it. The object as it's being printed dissipates that heat at the edges and the center of the object tends to be warmer than the edges. As the edges cool the plastic contracts which cause the edges to curl up. On a small print this problem is much more manageable. On larger prints it's crucial to make sure the object cools down uniformly. Hence the heated build chamber.

If take the Bible literally, you have to accept an enormous amount of logical contradictions and cognitive dissonance. Evolution is where they start to have a problem? Any time there's discrepancy between the Bible and common sense the answer is always "magic"(God). Why can't evolution fall under that too for these people? Would a literal interpretation of the Bible really be that much more absurd if in addition to talking snakes and magic apples that the universe is 14 billion years and simultaneously 6 thousand years old?

I've been trying to figure that out myself. So far here's what I've seen:

You can't click on 'parent' to see what that comment was a response to. So if you want to get some content on the conversation you have to keep moving your threshold until it appears.

There's quite a bit of whitespace to the right.

It uses javascript I think I read somewhere? I guess that's a problem for some people.

They seem like issues that shouldn't be too hard to resolve so I don't understand what the vitriol is all about but then again I don't understand why Slashdot wouldn't just fix it.

Feel free to point out what else is actually wrong. It's kind of hard to get a good summary of what's broke in between all the OMGG!!!!!!! FUCK BETA!!!! AHHHHH

Ahh that brings back fond memories of FF13, the finest hallway simulator ever made. And it also taught me a valuable lesson, video game reviews are absolutely worthless. It has a metacritic score of 83 while most reviews admit that you have to wait 20 hours to get to the part that isn't a long corridor. Yep 20 hours of pushing up on the control stick, mashing 'A' randomly when a random encounter is hit and hearing that great banter between the characters which is like a conversation between Jar Jar Binks and the goth kids on South Park.

I don't understand the logic of people like you. What if you find out you have a serious that you can treat? Suppose you have an incurable illness but it won't hit for 60 years? 60 years is a long time in medical research. Suppose it' incurable but you can live your life in such a way as to reduce the chances of it?

Do you also drive to work with a blind fold on because other drivers make you nervous?

The more cordial the buyer's secretary, the greater the odds that the competition already has the order.
