  • Commented on Policy change: future US visits
    The fact that he actually asked "are Jews people?" and banned his children from attending a school because it was attended by Jews are good indicator, no? Also, your terminology("Judeophile") and the sites you link too are...telling....
  • Commented on Playtime is over
    DingDingDing.Wrong! Der'i is indeed far from without influence, but water rights in the Territories(like virtually everything else) are purview of the Minister of Defense, by virtue of them being under martial law. quick tutorial: Der'i is Charedi, and his party...
  • Commented on What else can you do with a Big Dumb Booster?
    to refute your points one by one: 1) Israel has been created by the nefarious terrorism of UN decision. Quite a terrorist act, no? 2) Bankers - so now you claim a minority that has been historically poor(i.e. the amount...
  • Commented on What else can you do with a Big Dumb Booster?
    שנה טובה ומבורכת...
  • Commented on The iron law of development
    Re: dishwashers - yes, that's why I specified the large kitchens. I grew up in a house where the going joke was that when someone asked my parents if they had a dishwasher my father would raise his hand :)...
  • Commented on The iron law of development
    grouchy rant of my own: hand washing isn't limited to just thumping it on stones in a stream, and is less time-consuming than cooking given simply a supply of hot water, decent-sized sink and washboard, boiler and mangle such supply...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    you forgot Killjoys(which I love) and Cleverman(which I know is good but can't watch due to personal buttons)...
  • Commented on A plaintive request
    Re: Nethanyahu &Hezbolla: 1) Hezbolla is not "50 miles from the border". That border region has been one of their strongholds since the 80's, and that hadn't changed much(during the bad old days mortar fire on the border towns was...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: The Annihilation Score
    read and enjoyed it. I may have to go back and read "The Rhesus Chart", which I dropped mid-read because it pressed some serious personal buttons(the writing was good and I was enjoying it up to that point). One thing...
  • Commented on Updating a classic
    Your HR department wouldn't hire incompetent developers, would they? Therefor version control and code reviews are not required, everyone is free to deliver to any part of the codebase from their first day on the job as they wish....
  • Commented on A purely theoretical dilemma
    possible failure mode: if the hive mind does not get created from the whole human race at once but is grown through an intermediate stage of smaller hive minds then we will have a possibility of different hive minds in...
  • Commented on A question about the future of the world wide web
    So, no Amazon or other online retailers? Count me and everyone who lives outside central markets out with a vengeance. When I was 14 Amazon was started, and even with shipping costs, the ability to browse and order books online...
  • Commented on A question about the future of the world wide web
    As a user, my concern would be twofold: 1) how do I monitor how much I'm spending?i.e. how do I know the cost of that webpage for me, and how do I make sure I don't spend more than I'm...
  • Commented on Sitrep
    The semantic and syntactic content of a conversation(i.e. words, as written) contain maybe 20% of the information in conversation, by depriving the debate of the pragmatic side-channel(tone of voice, body language) you make the business of lying that much easier....
  • Commented on Sitrep
    The problem is that this is much more open to interference and outright vote fraud by the people running the technical system(not necessarily the government as much as some subdivision thereof). Not to mention what happens when you have connectivity...
  • Commented on The cult of justice
    how did it turn out?...
  • Commented on The revolution will not be hand-stitched
    Fashion designing as an easy hobby. Today, to do that you need not inconsiderable time and materials: the moment the time and materials requirements grow a lot less, you can personally design your own outfit, if you so desire. Another...
  • Commented on Why Microsoft Word must Die
    You know, there is another answer: then "Word is better"- that answer is "the cost of converting all existing documents and teaching all users to use a new word-processing tool is more then the problem is worth". Essentially you can...
  • Commented on A deceptively simple question
    BetterPlace had several problems, some unavoidable, some very avoidable: 1) Israel is a tiny market. Essentially we have less people then the metropolitan area of NYC(or London), and are spread somewhat sparser. This means you can't build a cluster of...
  • Commented on A deceptively simple question
    I can think offhand of some kinds of stuff I'd be hesitant to buy online, here are a couple: 1) any kind of food I can inspect for problems, and possibly quality difference when I see it in the store(i.e....
  • Commented on Commercial interlude
    One of the things we don't get told and/or see is how the motile juvenile phase becomes the sessile mature phase. the requirements we can infer are: 1) a host - a juvenile human female, apparently anything from toddler up...
