Specifically, she didn't want to "start from scratch with my followers".
Plenty of other imaginary currency exist that do the exact same thing bitcoin does, but better and no electricity waste aka timekoin is a good example.
I don't know. Timekoin looks pretty dodgy. Their "marketplace" has an expired SSL cert.
There are studies showing declining sleep quality with blue light after sunset. I want my lights to cycle into the ambers and reds after dark, but to be bright and white in the middle of the day (the same way my computer does with f.lux). For now, I get around by wearing dorky orange safety glasses after 9pm, but would prefer my home not expose me to the blue parts of the spectrum. I'm still not sure HUE is the solution, because the wall switches are useless. But it at least gives me the possibility of having the spectrum shift with time via IFTT.
Bad form to reply to self, but just realized this is probably an April Fool's prank. Whee! <grumble>
Yeah, me too! Really?!? Nothing in the prefs to disable it? No cookie even to set the volume to zero once I've silenced 3 of them. Grr.
Electric motors operate at max torque at all RPMs.
RPMs - is that Revolutions Per Minutes?
Actually, yes. (Revolutions Per Minute)s.
If you're talking about a single angular velocity, use RPM. (The tach reads 'RPM', not 'RPMs'.)
But the GP used the phrase "at *all* RPMs", so he was clearly talking about multiple angular velocities.
...dollars can be used anywhere...
Dollars *can't* be used everywhere (online gambling, for example). Thus, interest in bitcoin.
That youtube link provides a great explanation!
Heh, I read that link as "instant trim shot", and was worried about clicking it at work.
With the oil/gas prices going back down from their highs last year, using corn to produce ethanol isn't cost-effective, so the artificial (non-food use) shortage is relieved.
I think he meant "sodder" (or "sah-der"). The point is that the L is silent in American pronunciation, unlike (apparently) those in countries that speak English.
Even if someone consumes zero carbohydrates in the diet, glucose can be manufactured in the body from ketone bodies via gluconeogenesis. So, yes, there is always some amount of glucose in the bloodstream.
Now I'm wondering if my mod points are an April Fool's joke, too...
