That's not true. I use adblock because I just want the content I came for and not a bunch of other stuff taking up my screen. If it weren't for adblock's advanced settings, sites like LinkedIn would be unusable.
Just taking this quick opportunity to post a link to my favorite journal, the Journal of Articles in Support of the Null Hypothesis: http://www.jasnh.com/ .
JASNH is one of the few places where you can submit a paper that says "we tested for X effect on Y and found no evidence that X affects Y". Generally this research is unpublishable and people will tweak parameters to get something career-advancing out of their research; I like JASNH because of the reminder that "falsifiability" can really happen.
Yes, that would be very noble.
Yeah, I am really enjoying it. Only watched the first 3 episodes so far, but I am trying to make it last a few days at least, or I would just sit and watch the whole thing.
The Net got it wrong in that running "whois" doesn't bring up a photo of someone's driver's license and that pressing "ESC" doesn't roll back database changes across the Internet.
Does mean that I have to stop putting links to my super secret stuff on the pi-symbol in the lower-right corner of my web pages?
One packet of Palcohol equals one shot with each packet weighing 1 ounce and turning into liquid when mixed with 6 ounces of water
Instead of carrying seven ounces for one unit of alcohol why not just bring grain alcohol and get 14 units for the same weight?
This device makes sense for situations where arranging the food is where the effort liesâ"delicate cookies shaped like snowflakes and portraits of the bar mitzvah boy sculpted in chopped liver. But for things like a pizza or ravioli or cookies that can be laid out in no time with a spoon or a pasty bag it's a waste of time.
It's not like you load the thing with food elements like flour, eggs, cheese, and spices and ravioli comes out. It doesn't make food, it only squirts out food that's already made. The video's enthusiasm about how one is eating all sorts of wonderful fresh ingredients is irrelevant because one has to make that stuff anyway before it goes in the machine.
I can see this being an interesting tool for fancy restaurants that would like to make breadsticks that look like coral and other instances where people pay for presentation for itself, but being adopted in homes like the microwave was? I just don't see the value.
Agreed. Touching a competitor's setup at a trade fair is bush league.
I don't buy that "testing" defense for a second. If you're a company that large you test by buying a machine anonymously at retail, take it to your labs, complete a test plan, then take it apart the see the build and components. Just randomly poking at stuff before a trade show isn't even going to give you much data.

I ask because I first started with progressive lenses about five years ago. They helped me immediately with small print and the computer, but it took at least a month to get used to wearing them around and I was very conscious of tilting my head to get the angle right for distances. Sometime in the second month I stopped noticing (the head tilt must have become automatic) and they've been fine ever since. I wonder if you're experiencing something similar, just reversed.
For what it's worth, I use two 24" monitors at work and have no problems.
Pretty much anyone who is calling Obama a "socialist" doesn't understand what Socialism means, doesn't understand just how skewed to the political right the US is politically, and doesn't understand that for a lot of us in the rest of the world, being at least a bit Socialist is a *good* thing. I am in Canada and we are sadly heading further to the right than we have been in the past and its proving to only be a bad thing for the country IMHO. As a Canadian, I view Obama as being pretty definitely Right-Wing in almost all regards. The Republicans qualify as "Batshit insane Right Wing" on the other hand
Not just an urban legend, it's fucking stupid. Teachers wouldn't know who was connected? Please.
Every year or so you read about all of these brilliant researchers working on fascinating projects for them. The rest of the time, it's just one mediocre release of Windows and Office after another.
It's like a Michael Crichton book: Some guy brings dinosaurs back and all he can think to do with it is open an amusement park.
Bat-Mite? Surely you mean "Rabid Cousin Oliver."
