  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Whether heavier arrows penetrate better is actually vigorously debated. If it’s true it’s not obviously true. I’ve shot a lot of different types of arrows and it was generally the lighting ones that penetrated better for me, because the arrowhead...

    I’m 49 white make CIS, small kids at home and not even remotely on the spectrum So I guess I half fit the profile...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    They are not dancing around where the processing is done they are just assuming a basic level of knowledge AWS is divided into Regions. Examples include US East (Northern Virginia) or Europe (Ireland) etc etc These regions are then subdivided...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    sigh. Yes you can tell what country your data is in, if you want to. Why wouldn’t you, aws is all region based anyway which maps to physical countries ? Honestly all those security issues are pretty solved at this...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    “ Mere tens of thousands of CPU cores is kinda passé. Modern GPUs are SIMD devices with up to thousands of FPUs running in parallel per processor“ Yes but FPU’s are not equivalent to CPU’s, while they are good for...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    What are you babbling about ? For cloud jobs your not talking about one computer, even a super computer (which are really more like mini clouds these days anyway). Your talking about thousands of commodity servers And you most certainly...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    - Cloud allows you to run multiple OS’s/ libraries etc - cloud scales way way beyond mainframes , thousands or tens of thousands of cpu is not uncommon - compete disconnect between hardware and software (not just got standby) -...
  • Commented on Tentative hypothesis
    Charlie is so right, I’m dying laughing Other examples of “Vice versa” - the cloud, any cloud, pick a cloud this blog hates clouds - smartphones - social media - ridesharing apps - google applications (google docs, gmail etc) -...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    I’ve driven every East / west highway over the coastal range between Corvallis and Redding at least once The one I’ve driven the most is the 199 I’ve also riven some more questionable county road routes over the coastal range...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Yeah, sure just saying that you shouldn’t assume much by the “state highway” designation. It can mean anything from a freeway equivalent to a barely paved two laner...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    Pacifism is generally not a national belief but a personal one or a religious one The US quakers would be a good example And it generally does mean “not willing to commit violence under any circumstances “ Trying to apply...
  • Commented on Someone please sack the script-writers
    There is no “highway” that goes from Redding to Eureka. There is the 299, a two lane mountain road that you’d have to be crazy to drive in the winter during a snow fall In general all those east/west roads...

    “2 hours is a totally acceptable commute range here. I have worked in Brisbane with someone who commuted from the little town my grandfather retired to in the 80s, which isn't much less than that (maybe 1 hour 40 mins)...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    “drivers are employees. Curious were you an employee or a contractor for the taxi form back then ? Nowadays (since before Uber) everyone working for a taxi company is also a contractor...

    Boeing actually fucked up super bad and is actively trying to get out from under with the blame the pilots spin This is a pretty excellent and in-depth article https://newrepublic.com/article/154944/boeing-737-max-investigation-indonesia-lion-air-ethiopian-airlines-managerial-revolution...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    As an American the people I visit “not driving” is not really a thing that happens Also renting cars is nowhere near the pita it used to be. They’ve computerized finally and optimized their workflow to the point where you...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Travel slowly? We have these little things called “airplanes” when we want to get places fast. I routinely jet from SF to Seattle (807 miles) for $99 in 1.5 hours. So yeah, high speed rail don’t impress me so much...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    The best north from SF Route is the 101 to Reedsport and then the 38 east to I5 That’s a gorgeous road. Then you can take the I5 north to Portland and drive the Columbia river highway through the Columbia...

    Really sorry to hear this Charlie...
  • Commented on CASE NIGHTMARE BLONDE
    Using the heat of your house as a battery works reasonably well in both summer and winter, but where I have a house in southern Oregon it’s actually more of a summer thing Gets hot up there in the summer....

    I don’t know why I bother, but alas it was not orbital weather control lasers fired from secret government space shuttle data that caused Dorian to stall... https://www.cnn.com/2019/09/02/us/why-did-dorian-stall/index.html...
  • Commented on Whoops Apocalypse!
    The problem with brown water operations, at least if the brown water is potentially hostile, is that it’s basically impossible not to get your cutters killed by enemy air or land based missile assets. The only thing a convoy in...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    “Longer term, it's non-viable, unless you can figure out how to hurricane-proof and wildfire-proof tents and in addition insulate and air condition them well enough to make 45 celsius heat emergencies survivable.“ None of these things are very likely in...
  • Commented on Social architecture and the house of tomorrow
    The population of Europe actually increased from 1600 to 1700 as did the population of the world I’ve never seen any credible evidence of a 30% drop worldwide even from the most ardent “general crisis” supporter. Specific areas maybe, like...

    Augmented and virtual reality will have landed hard by then. I expect home layouts will be built around optimizing augmented reality “this flat is great for airships, spacecraft and deep sea submarines this other one makes a good castle “...

    Food cost tells half the story food production tells the other half and the story those two numbers tell us, worldwide on the average, food is the most plentiful and cheapest it’s ever been I’m not making any statements about...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Sure local famines and collapses but the overall world market is not signaling any kind of systemic problem Also farmers have a lot of political power in the US at least, because of how the senate seats are unequally distributed...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Despite all the doom and gloom about the alleged ongoing collapse of agriculture the price on the world market of all the major staples are on a downward not upward trend That collapse may happen but it has not started...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    Yes I am enjoying it very much thanks for the recommendation and it’s certainly one Charlie should read if he hasn’t, lots of inspiration for a fertile imagination in there It’s also a pretty relevant case study on the government...
  • Commented on The Inevitable Brexit Thread (1)
    It’s certainly dense, reading it a bit at a time along with other things. Fun though. There were also some pretty hilarious bits where they were doing COG drills and the spouses of the various government officials discovered neither they...
