I have an artificial device implanted in my abdomen that performs the function of my failed kidneys. It's powered by my own metabolic processes and has the potential to work maintenance free for decades. It's also totally open source.
The same way that things went from being "neat" or "cool" became "awesome," and how a few years back all "fails" became "epic fails." Nowadays one can't be a "good" coder, or an "excellent" coder. One must be a "rock star." People who aren't rock stars aren't merely "below the median," they are "fucking retards."
My city has been trying to get some dubious development lately (casinos and the Olympics). The politicians and developers, seeking to get voter approval for revised laws, tax breaks, and other asshattery, love to throw around terms like "world class." I saw an ad on the subway that used the phrase three times. It's like listening to Donald Trump imitators throw around superlatives "the classiest, most gold-plated, marble-encrusted codpiece you ever saw."
That's nerd cred right there. Drop the mic and walk.
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.
Yes, that would be very noble.
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.
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.
