I've yet to see the "killer app" for the Pebble smartwatch. Neither could they, which is probably why they open-sourced the SDK. If they had a killer app they would have been purchased (or emulated) by Apple/Microsoft/Google et all already.
If they can grow it on Aluminum foil, perhaps they can grow it on an Aluminum block, with cooling passages.
Since when have protective tariffs been "efficient"?
If we required accounting of emissions, and not simply of currency units, then there would be no need for tariffs to address the issue of the hidden environmental costs. They can eventually be translated into economic costs, but they also affect quality of life — you can assign economic costs to that as well, but you'll hardly tell the whole story.
When you buy goods made somewhere with inadequate pollution controls, many others have to pay part of your bill. My only problem with the whole idea is that any tariffs should be used specifically for bioremediation, and my prediction is that they largely won't be.
My favorite thing about free to pay games is that so many games (FtP or otherwise) are only really fun during the buildup phase, and then they get a bit samey. You can go through all that without actually spending any money. You lose the time either way. Then you move on to the next game. Along the way, if you're feeling generous, you might file some bug reports. That is an awful lot like actual work, however.
You have no idea what the design is and you're trying to up game the designers? Really?
Not trying, and not me. It's not my invention, and it's already been done. It's what you're normally meant to do when you build a rocket stove, for example.
Anyway, on topic, all you actually need is a skirt to channel heat up the sides of the pot. If it's a little lower than the pot itself then the heat will flow up the sides of the pot and you get massively more heat transfer. One little piece of sheet metal, done.
What moron would sign a contract like that? Are you really that dumb?
I was going to add 3- A Clown, But then I remembered the Principal from my daughters public school...
Because people are too fucking stupid to do it on their own. Maybe if we require IQ above what degree they paid for this problem would not manifest as much.
nobody employed at a K-12 school has the ability or IQ to properly run and terminate cat6/fiber/etc let alone install a clean network rack.
Ever single school my company is called in to fix was an utter nightmare that had to have most of the infrastructure gutted. Idiots just running non plenum wire in the ceiling ducts, etc...
If you want it half assed, let the school do it. If you want ti right, hire a real company of professionals to come in and install it right so it has a chance to survive the school's staff.
You volunteering to install all of it for free?
In my old days the laptop battery did not charge, you simply replaced the standard 4 AA batteries and kept on truckin... Tandy 100 FTW!
I even had the acoustic coupler modem, hacked many a UUNET dial up nodes from payphones with that wonderful laptop.
The one that doesnt suck.
All the others from Samsung and the rest have two major SUCK failure points...
1 - Have to charge it daily : FAIL.
2 - cant read it in direct sunlight : FAIL.
The pebble does both perfectly and for Under $150 if you buy the normal one.
How much is Israel spending, though, and how much of Iron Dome's cost is borne by American foreign aid?
Seattle’s publicly-owned electrical utility, City Light, is now demanding a refund for the $17,500 that it paid to Brand.com in a botched effort to boost the online reputation of its highly-paid chief executive, Jorge Carrasco.
Brand.com "enhances online branding and clears negatives by blanketing search results with positive content" in an attempt to counteract unwanted search engine results. City Light signed a contract with the company in October 2013 and extended it in February 2014. The contracts authorized payments of up to $47,500.
Hamilton said that he first raised the issue of the utility’s online reputation when he was interviewing for the chief of staff job in early 2013.
“All I saw were negative stories about storms, outages and pay increases and I raised it as a concern during that interview,” he said. “And then after I started, [CEO Jorge Carrasco] and I discussed what we could do to more accurately represent the utility and what the utility is all about, because we didn't feel it was well represented online.”
Thus, the Brand.com contract. City Light says that it only ever thought Brand.com would help it place legitimate material in legitimate outlets—talking up some of the positive changes that have taken place at City Light during Carrasco's tenure. Instead, it appears to have received mostly bogus blog posts."
