If I had some mod points I'd up you. This is one of the more insightful posts I've seen in a while.
I agree. I say for every tax evading loophole a company uses, the fewer H-1B visas they are allowed.
Keep an eye on Ebay for parts.
I that same vein, Android please stop removing my shortcut icons on the desktop every time an app updates. I put those shortcuts there so I wouldn't have to find them again and it is very annoying.
I remember LAN gaming Duke3d in my dorm on a 75Mhz 486 Toshiba laptop and my frame rates didn't always equal my compatriots who had faster Packard Bells and the like. I find it difficult to believe a 20Mhz 486 would have decently run Duke3d. Oh the other hand, maybe my frame glitches were due to the parallel port to Ethernet adapter I was using at the time...
I'll give kudos to HDtracks for offering a service I would actually pay for, but I find their 192kHz/24bit service a bit idiotic and the people who buy from it are gullible.
When you purchase an HDtracks file, it is the same quality as a store-purchased CD.
So what you're saying is that somehow I get more fidelity when a 44.1kHz/16bit digital audio source is upconverted to 192kHz/24bit? Perhaps they should give more detail on where their actual music is sourced from. Saying how the artist originally mastered their work is just snake-oil unless they guarantee that was the source used to derive the hidef copy they are selling.
Am I supposed to read that as "OCT31 equals DEC25.....NOT
They said it is also meant to show South Korea and Japan that the United States is willing to commit resources to deterring the North
Thank god Japan and South Korea's children can sleep safely at night knowing that the Americans are putting missile interceptors in Alaska. That'll show them we care!
The one great thing about a standing desk is you can fine-tune the exact height of your arms and wrists. I find coding typing to happen in fits and spurts which is very different from the kind of fluid typing needed for writing reports/documents. I can easily type 70+wpm with 95%+ accuracy when I take a typing test with very little freeform typing on a day-to-day basis, but I can bet my coding typing is significantly slower due to the nature of the typing.
That being said, I really wouldn't know how disruptive walking while typing can be until I try, but my comment was geared towards alternative exercises others were suggesting such as disrupting myself from work by pulling on resistive straps or getting away from the desk and work and walking or running outside.
Ooh, how deliciously petty!
No links, because I didn't intend to promote any particular brand.
I'm sorry, I didn't realize that a mob of treadmill enthusiast bloggers and advertising agencies were waiting with baited breath to see what treadmill monk (1958) is willing to endorse and "promote" so that exercise manufacturer X can cite it and cause their competitors' stock to take a dive in response. Most humans who haven't been paid to interact that buy something and like it, just so you know, they tend to share with others what it was they enjoyed and what their experience was with it. For example, "I like Jiff peanut butter because it is the creamiest" is a much better response then "I like peanut butter" because there is a lot of different peanut butter out there with varieties in composition, taste, and texture, and people seek out the experiences of those that most closely correspond to their own preferences to save themselves from a lackluster or bad experience.
Let me give you a little lesson in economics to get you off of your high horse. Giving preference to something that has benefited you is not a sin even in the world of perfect equanimity you live in. When you don't share those experiences you only do a disservice to the various engineers and other hard working people who took the time to produce a quality product that enhanced and made your life just a little bit better.
If you don't like my attitude you should just keep it to yourself. Shame on you for not remembering the first rule of
Thanks for the no-duh moment, googling 'treadmill desk' was so obvious. Can you share the particular model you use and about how much noise it makes?
It find it unendingly hilarious how low-tech and redundant most people's answers have been on a self purported geeky/nerdy website. It's also funny how many thought that I actually eat fritos and drink tab and mountain dew when it was in fact a geeky cultural allegory. I'm also going to have to assume that the lack of any kind of links to preferred equipment is a resounding demonstration that the
I saw the proverbial "whoosh" on the whole "at work" thing which I can guess you appreciate. A large amount of time is wasted sitting or standing in place at work every day and simple non-cardio walking can burn 100-130 calories an hour, with which we have 6-8 hours at our disposal daily. Not to say that cardio isn't important, but improving daily heart and cardiovascular is better served with longer, lighter exercises like walking than short intense activities. It seems to me walking in place would probably be the least disruptive thing to do while coding and provide the biggest time efficiency and physical benefit ratio.
I think at this point I'll just have to go to several exercise equipment stores and bring a decibel meter to measure treadmill operating noise since the stores will probably have significantly more internal noise than my office.
in the world even...
Some of the most productive people in the work are so because they are "lazy".
