Both work due to gravity. The difference is, in chain fountain, it's the link between beads that's pulling the next bead down and in siphon it's vacuum between molecules in the tube?
Funny, I was just exploring alternative options for my office.
I hate chairs. There is no way anybody use chairs "as intended", e.g. straight back etc. It just doesn't work. Sooner or later you'll crumble in one way or another.
I'm 34, but I've been working with computers for 16 years. Right now I have pain in my left arm, and tickling in my fingers. Probably injured nerve in my neck or sth.
Besides, posture is very important also for the mind. Good posture = better concentration. Buddhists, zen-Buddhists and yogis have figured that a long time ago.
This seems an interesting alternative: http://www.zafu.net/zenoffice.html Not really expensive. I might just order it and try it. I find seiza position quite comfortable, but haven't found any studies on long term health effects. It could slow down blood circulation in legs, which again is not very healthy.
Exactly. This is - interestingly - aligned with Oracle's "private cloud" vision.
How about don't put anything you want to keep private anywhere online?
Are you saying you trust FB the data which you don't want the world to see and access?
I think in general there's more inovation in Java EE than Java JRE at this point.
What people don't see is that Microsoft changed c# very much from the early days, trying to compete with Java.
Dynamic types were addedd to support LINQ, which was added to counter the raise of ORM like Hibernate and later JPA.
In reality, MS has no strategy, they are just adding and adding fetaures, which are percived as invoation, but in reality are just lack of platform strategy. Throw it to the wall and se what sticks is what they do.
Way back in the '90s, MS wanted to enable developers to use Java to write Windows apps.
Really? I was around int the '90s and have no recollection of that.
As a result, MS needed to write their own Java-like language for VB-style form designer apps, and came up with C#.
Please, don't be naive. MS first tried to poison Java by proprietary API (the same tactics Google is using in Android). When they failed, they created a copy of Java, invented a "new" language which is for some reason unbelievable similar to Java + some nice features and started the "developers, developers, developers" mantra. They called
Java was and still is a major risk for Microsoft.
