"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.
"News for Nerds. Stuff that Matters"
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.
You could call this "viral marketing"?
I would be interested, if I didn't have to run Windows on it.
I thought it was all a bit silly, but this video made me rethink that position:
Buggy whip makers may have gone the way of the horse and buggy, but those who make riding crops have found themselves a niche in which to prosper.
The trick is to adapt.
Find a niche and scratch it...
"code red worm
Those words gave me a twinge of nostalgia.
Yes, I just got a bit sentimental about an old buffer overflow.

Hoffman took him up on the offer, flying out to Los Angeles in the spring for a private tour. Driving up to the SpaceX headquarters, she was struck by how unassuming it was, how small compared to NASA, how plain on the outside and rather like a warehouse. As she walked through the complex, she was also surprised to find open work areas where NASA would have had endless hallways, offices and desks. Hoffman described SpaceX as resembling a giant workshop, a hive of activity in which employees stood working on nitty-gritty mechanical and electrical engineering. Everything in the shop was bound for space or was related to space. ... Seeing SpaceX in production forced Hoffman to acknowledge NASA might not be the best fit for her. The tour reminded her of the many mentors who had gone into the commercial sector of the space industry in search of better pay and more say in the direction their employers take." At NASA, young engineers find that they spend a lot of time with bureaucracy, the pace is slow, their projects often get canceled or delayed, and the creative job satisfaction is poor. At private companies like SpaceX, things are getting built now.
As to faxes, handwritten business communications are not at all unusual among older companies, due to the fact that typing kanji was not as straightforward process 20 years ago as it is today.
I've sent telegrams in Japan, but only to couples who were getting married and whose wedding I couldn't attend. I've never seen them used for other things, but a wedding is likely to have a few telegrams read at the reception.
Stop grasping at straws, you dullard.
While you're bickering over semantics, I'm demonstrating to the original poster how I have put together a working, reliable system that actually helps people deal with the tragedy that is Alzheimer's. Think about that for a minute, will you?
You're a zealot and a bore.
This is why people don't like you.
