If I did that, what would I do with the microscope? I just finished paying for it
As a biological research scientist, let me tell you that this will have *lots* of applications.
You have no idea how bad a typical computer display looks when you stick it under a microscope.
No, The Founders would burn you for witchcraft if you went back in time, showed them a drone...
Don't torrent over Tor
Torrent file-sharing applications have been observed to ignore proxy settings and make direct connections even when they are told to use Tor. Even if your torrent application connects only through Tor, you will often send out your real IP address in the tracker GET request, because that's how torrents work. Not only do you deanonymize your torrent traffic and your other simultaneous Tor web traffic this way, you also slow down the entire Tor network for everyone else.
CAPS LOCK IS CRUISE CONTROL FOR COOL.
Filter error: Don't use so many caps. It's like YELLING.
(Typing this on a day-old Chromebook that has a search key mapped to that position. Anyone know how I can map that to Ctrl?)
B..but slippery slope! And "asshole" is subjective, people disagree on what it means!
Sure, but racist threats are excluded from quite a few countries' free speech laws. And reddit isn't a country. So banning racism isn't that controversial.
"News for Nerds. Stuff that Matters"
Some of what they post falls under the latter category, not the former.
Could it be that this article annoyed you *because* you're an electrical engineer?
Doesn't matter I was happy to see his article this morning.
There's increased costs, for maintenance (regular cleaning) and replacement (it still cracks when damaged, even if it stays in one piece).
Glass by itself isn't nearly as strong as steel, so it would either need bollards or a steel fence to protect against vehicles. Vehicles crashing through gates can be very bad.
Bollards may not be a good idea though, because a smaller vehicle such as a motorcycle might still be able to go between the bollards and break through the glass.
Perhaps the lower half of the fence could be the current steel fence (to protect against large and small vehicles), and the upper half could be glass (to reduce the aesthetic impact).
Just curious: What's wrong with medium.com?
I look at it once in a while, but don't know much about it other than what I've found to be a fairly attractive layout.
Aside from that, it's just a blog platform, right? Anyone can write an article and if it gets any traffic, Medium's editors or algorithms promote it, if I understand correctly
Am I missing something?
Cool, then it's OK for me to set a few up.
"If we're all descended from a bunch of accounts, that explains a lot about the world."
My unfounded personal theory is that we get art from our Neanderthal ancestors.
To me, this looks more like a form of accounting.
Each mark represents something owed or something paid: In effect, it's a "chit".
(Was unsure of the exact meaning of chit, so I googled it:
Chit: A short official note, memorandum, or voucher, typically recording a sum owed.)
Capuchin monkeys can be taught the concept of money. They understand debt:
I haven't seen any studies where they spontaneously create art, though, which leads me to believe that accounting could appear earlier.
"Deliberate Markings", yes, which is significant and amazing, but undoubtedly some fool is going to claim that it is "unmistakeable proof that the ancients worshiped the ocean waves" or that it was carved by a shaman as a form of divination.
What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
