SPE_03 spe_03 torrent


SPE_04 spe_04 torrent


SPE_05 spe_05 torrent

SPE_03 and SPE_04 are torrents to zip files of torrents, as the original zips have been pulled from every file host I checked.

Comment: Been there done that (Score 1) 182

Living is a basement apartment in Boston I had problems with particulates from the street. I removed the window screen, installed a filter in its place, and mounted a window fan on the inside. Whole house air filter and didn't even need the box. 15 years ago, I claim prior art if he patents it.

I usually identify myself as atheist because that doesn't require the explanations that the correct label of anti-theist would. I see an atheist as an agnostic who is sufficiently convinced that supernatural beings don't exist. I am also anti-theist because I think the belief in gods is inherently evil, harmful, corrupting, and otherwise a bad thing.

Just to put the discussion back on track, as an engineer I find communications to be my most difficult challenge. I hold meeting, issue reports, and make sure to talk privately with everyone involved in my projects. Despite a strong concerted effort I still find people under or miss informed. No amount of communication is too much, I'm not sure any amount is sufficient.

If I have seen farther than others, it is because I was standing on the shoulders of giants. -- Isaac Newton
