Agreed. Too many people take the BS shortcuts, ie. "A is healthy, B is bad, etc." Just eat what the f*ck you want, while obeying the cardinal rules : 1) cals in = cals out 2) IIFYM (if it fits your macros) Think of it like food budgeting, but with cals instead of $$$. You will naturally gravitate towards more filling but less calorie dense foodstuffs (greens, etc.). Those also happen to have the vitamins, etc. that you need. /donedeal

The problem in the U.S. is not people who don't have skills. People have skills. The problem is that skills aren't valued. If you have skills, you will get paid shit. If you manipulate money, you will get paid a lot. This is why there's been such a geek brain drain into the financial industry. The U.S. does not value working for a living. We value gambling for a living.

Comment Re:When do we get a real boost over 2013 speeds? (Score 1) 126

Wait another half a decade. A Haswell 4770K maxed out at ~4.5GHz (typical max if you do not delid) works out to be ~= 5.6GHz Nehalem i7. This is absolute crap if you consider that it was pretty much 5 years from Nehalem to Haswell, but I needed to upgrade some machines (i7 920 @ 4.1GHz) so went with Haswell and got only a 37% boost in absolute OCed performance for my trouble.

The waveguide has a very small cross-section. Wonder how they coupled fiber to the ports. End-fire coupling directly to a fiber would be horrendously inefficient, since minimizing coupling loss requires both a good spatial overlap of the mode profiles and a good match of the effective refractive indices in the two waveguides.
