  • Commented on Catching Up
    Allow me to pointlessly interject and say that I have been saying for years that the money spent on Edinburgh's tram would have been better spent on making all taxis and buses zero emissions, by whatever methods that worked....
  • Commented on Catching Up
    I have a mad theory that one reason labour won Kensington and suchlike in London is that all the dodgy foreign money is buying places and not renting them out. I think someone on here said a while back that...
  • Commented on Catching Up
    That's funny, my version of socialism involves transparency and separation of powers. So just implement it instead of the dictatorships of eastern europe and everything will be fine....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    Although having typed that, the stated policy of continuing subsidies of farmers at current levels for two or three years beyond brexit was probably quite popular....
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Nightmare Stacks
    The country side used to be much more liberal though, not just conservative. There's also the point that the evil Tories up here seem to position themselves as the anti SNP, despite this being a British election, and some people...
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    You'd have a better chance of persuading us that your dreams are related to reality if you crunched some numbers. The others aren, you aren't. Engineering and science are hard, but so is reality....
  • Commented on The World of Tomorrow
    The reason to worry about a falling birthrate in a world of automated jobs is because who is going to consume the products of the automation, and who is going to work or do something to pay for the debts...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    There aren't any security of privacy issues, you are probably thinking of the heat sensitive camera wavelengths of IR. The ones modern cameras are sensitive to without the filter, are just off the end of the visible spectrum....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    That's interesting re. focusing with blue light. I have a torch which is a bit blue and always reckon things look odd, and felt that I needed more light to make things as visible than if I had a warm...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    They did, several years ago. I have this torch: http://www.fenixlight.com/ProductMore.aspx?id=1159&tid=27&cid=2#.WSW6Cdy1uUk I suppose it isn't absolutely the best high CRI, but it's pretty good, which is why I bought it compared to other torches. Note that Fenix have a wide range...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I did say offering, not "all are made in". IN general it varies from high CRI, more yellowish like old style lightbulbs to neutral to slight bluish tint. You are correct though that blue tinted white gives more power than...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Your last sentence should read "cheap LED's you see in cheap torches", since the branded more up market ones have been offering high CRI led's for years and years now. On the other hand I recently got a cheap led...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    You only just noticed? Several of us have met Charlie in various ways at various times, usually due to close geographical proximity or shared interests. Gordycoale is right....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Ah, but you aren't thinking this through! Genetic modification of crops will solve all the heat issues, and provide massive investment opportunities!!! Any day now!!! Meanwhile, on twitter, there's a moron who can't see that demanding everyone have photo ID...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    What is there to notice? Evil baby eating lefties have been saying for decades that the rich are controlling things to suit themselves, and yet people keep ignoring them. People keep voting for the leapards eating faces party, and then...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    You mean for adding to the ocean? Every study done by scientists indicates that it's not much use, versus every booster, shyster, engineer and money maker who says it's a great idea and can solve all the problems....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Yes. You keep giving them food and a bit of other stuff and treat them like the mad relatives you don't want to talk about. Don't give them any military stuff to go on about, although obviously you have to...
  • Commented on Traveller RPG, Firefly, Dumarest, Vatta's War... are they all "Star Punk"?
    I was about to quote the OED re. origin and definition of 'punk' but the NLS link to it isn't working properly. So anyway, I seem to recall that here in the UK it has an old meaning, of old...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    When you phrase it that, way, yes, of course. The corrupt use of various scriptures has always been a problem, and the most modern expression is surely the american evangelical church with various ideas, from dispensationalism to the prosperity gospel....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    TLA means what? The Last Airbender or Three Letter Acronym?...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    Obviously the time is ripe to try again. After all, with the Juicero getting millions of dollars, and Musks nonsensical hyperloop stuff getting press, there is plenty of room for aerial cycleways....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    I'm sure you would like to think so. Some, yes, but, as consideration of talk radio, the mail, etc, or more modern methods makes clear, no it doesn't for most of them....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    My point is more that a worryingly large section of the populace won't get wise to it at all. Eventually they'll die off and be replaced by younger people who grew up with it around, but there will be a...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    The tricky bit is the inbetween time when people are still learning about it all. And no matter what, a lot of people will believe the nonsense anyway, see Clinton derangement syndrome, the mail, etc. Or for instance you'd be...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    As Pigeon says, cycling in Edinburgh, and indeed a lot of Scotland and England, involves headwinds both ways, hills, slippery bits, bad corners, etc. Then there is the way the wind whips around building corners. Suffice to say, take your...

    Graydon clearly hasn't lived in Edinburgh......
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    It's a bit hard to tell which of them is typing tongue in cheek, or when they started doing so. I'm sure Charlie is....
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    And yet, Greg, other countries like Sweden and Switzerland managed to have fallout shelters for most of their population. Geography helps of course, but the British government policy was basically stay at home and die; if yo usurvive do as...
  • Commented on Rejection Letter
    Hardware producers do take software seriously, it's just that as profit maximising entities themselves, it isn't worth their while to just give away various updates and other stuff. My work is still using XP based machines because upgrading the instrument...
  • Commented on Laundry summer madness sale!
    In pursuit of efficiency we should just make everyone in the world speak and write in the same language. Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, the council is very happy to both make it easier to kill cyclists and harder to actually drive...
