I'd suspect that later on today (or when the day begins across in the US) that far more planes will appear. There tends to be a lot less air traffic during nights.

It's night time over there atm (or at least when the link was posted) so the traffic is low.

Ah right, didn't realise that was related to his comment on the US. :thup:

Haha trust me, those flight tracking things aren't nearly as exciting when you spend eight hours a day providing "support" for it. Especially when planes regularly appear in obscure places around the globe.

Anyway, there aren't that many flight paths that cross over central US, excluding domestic flights.

MW, I dont think a full one exists yet but it is being worked on. The survey company I used to work for did a free trial around 3 years ago where we scanned a whole tube station and around 50m of tunnel in each direction. Didn't get any work out of it but it made for an impressive demo in future pitches.

interesting :thup: id probably only look at it for 5/10 minutes, just thought on the train yesterday how complicated it must be with all the directions, depths, link between tunnels etc

surely TFL must have one though given they need to build the tunnels

"Select “hide location”, make sure you have all countries unselected, and click go. What this will do is drop you in a random part of the world. It’s as if you woke up on the side of a road in an unfamiliar country. The goal of the game is to find your way to an airport so you can return home.

Bonus Hard Mode: No using outside sources, and that includes using google maps to figure out your location from signs or landmarks"

I've been stuck in (what I've guessed is) the South African countryside for an hour. I've seen 1 village and a dead cow laid on the side of the road.

Kept pressing for a while, then it started getting buggy nearer the airport, don't think they had the street view all the way there.
I was well lucky like, that took me some five minutes, started on that road. Started going the wrong way though, as I saw what looked like an airport bus, so I started following it, but then I thought I better check the road signs on the other side of the road and there it was.

Just catching up on this thread, that Mapcrunch is ace. First go - Hong Kong (guessed immediately, found the airport v quickly). Second go - some farm track in Wales (bilingual signs, got on a motorway pretty sharpish). Third go, some dirt track. My wife guessed Africa, I thought Oz. After f***ing ages going in a straight line, I gave up. It was the f***ing Goldfields Highway in Western Australia. That's 500 miles long through the bush.

f***ing hell- is that ridge in the middle of that angle the one they climb?

 :scared:


I don't think so.. the usual route is up to the col between Everest and Lhotse (which I think is the knobbly one to the right of Everest) then up from there, so behind the bit of Everest you can see here.  I think the route coincides with the ridge from almost the very top, but they don't generally go all the way up any of the ridges, if I remember rightly.  If I've got my directions right (and there's no reason to think I have, never having been there :lol:), the usual route up Everest disappears from that picture where Everest joins Lhotse to its right.

K2 follows a route of that sort of steepness all the way, there being no easier faces to climb :undecided:  Again from memory, the average gradient on Everest from base camp (the usual way) is just around 20 degrees, whereas on K2 it's closer to 50.  Spoiler because you don't want a thread full of mountain pictures :lol:

Spoiler
[close]

I always look at that Everest scene and think :yao: it's just twice the height of Ben Nevis from there, how hard can it be?  I sincerely hope I never allow that thought to grow to the extent that I ever find myself stood there :scared:

True. I forgot the other definition and context of that word, to be frank.

Grammar is generally the sort of knowledge that is very specific to school. I actually remembered most of the concepts because I will have learned these things from ages 13-15, which is less than a decade ago. If you ask the same questions when I am 35, I won't have any clue.

You need a custom title, something like 'massive nerd'.

12/14. I forgot what abstract nouns and gerunds are. Thank God I've been reminded.

12 out of a possible 14.  Content with that, seeing as the only questions I got incorrect were about elements of grammar I can't remember ever encountering: active voice and gerunds.

12/14 - a few being guesses. f***ed up identifying what was conditional/passive. Swear that was a harder test than what I took back in Year 6.

Have to say... although I enjoy writing, and although my life's progress has been heavily dependant on writing since the age of 15, the real scientific anatomy of English seems a bit :dontknow: to me. You could win the Pullitzer prize without knowing what a prepositional phrase is, I would have thought.  Sure, it's vital to learn the basics at a junior level, but knowing how to construct a perfect piece of writing comes largely through instinct imo.

Ther'es a link in the video description to the product homepage - https://code.google.com/p/logstalgia/ - it's a tool that takes your web server logs and visualizes them, showing where visitors came from and what pages they hit.  There's also a video on that page showing what a normal log looks like when converted to a video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=HeWfkPeDQbY

each dot is basically a request for a specific page - that shitstorm in the first video was someone attacking a server by sending tens of thousands of requests at once to a single spot.

South Dakota likes "Teen"
Oklahoma likes "Creampie"
top search in Canada is "Asian"
Brits like "British"
French like "French"
racists
Ukraine "Raincoat (gay)" Raincoat means condom, thanks urban dictionary.

Odd it isn't "francaise", tbh. Note the racists have "indian" and "north african"respectively as their second top searches, mind. I think the Norwegians win in that regard: 3 of the top 5 are for Norwegian porn.

Peru and Venezuela are like the gayest places on earth. It's all "gay, gay, gay, gay, nina hartley, gay, gay, gay, gay".

And Syria: no. 1 is "aunt". What's going on with Syrian people?

Edit: I take that back about the Norwegians. Japan has 7 * Japan plus "Asian".

Also, I'm learning quite a lot of geography here.

Should I be worried that I knew that already :(

It'd be great if it actually worked as simply as he describes it. Text encoding is a massive PITA.
Title: Re: General Internet Neat Stuff
Post by: thomas on Monday 23 September 2013, 11:31:59 PM
at least EBCDIC has died a death.

tbh most devs I work with these days don't even worry about encoding. It's all negotiated at the app level anymore, and since everyone is mostly developing for the web and browsers do such a good job of it, no one thinks about it. 

tl;dr: we're old :lol:
Title: Re: General Internet Neat Stuff
Post by: wacko on Tuesday 24 September 2013, 12:03:23 AM
It works well enough if your software encodes/decodes all its text properly (and declares the encoding) and keeps everything in a DB, but things still rapidly go to s*** if you, say, create a file whose name contains non-ascii characters on Win/Mac, upload it to a Linux server and try to link to it in HTML. Chances are, Apache will throw a 404.

Windows filenames are UTF-32 IIRC, and Mac filenames are UTF-8 (both normalised). But Linux filenames are bytes, and therefore utterly awful to work with because there's literally no way of knowing which encoding was used. And trying to guess encoding is a minefield. It's almost impossible to tell the difference between Euro Windows-encoded files (ISO 8859-15, I  think) and MacRoman, as only a couple of common-ish characters are different.

Still a minefield, IMO (but only because everyone won't just use UTF-8).
Title: Re: General Internet Neat Stuff
Post by: thomas on Tuesday 24 September 2013, 12:21:37 AM
gotta say I'm skeptical of that but my *nix fu is rusty. My world's been win/.net/IIS for the past 6 years - ms does a fine job of shielding me from having to care about encoding 99.999% of the time - but it would shock me if linux, with use as widespread as it is, would have problems like that. for what filesystem is that true? ext2fs?


edit: little googling, looks like almost all distros have defaulted to utf-8 by now. I'm sure there's edge cases and old boxen with 10 year uptimes that'll puke but it sounds like most have come around to the idea.
Title: Re: General Internet Neat Stuff
Post by: wacko on Tuesday 24 September 2013, 12:53:13 AM
These days, all distros default to UTF-8, so all filenames created by that system will be UTF-8 encoded. But all Linux filesystems store filenames as bytes without any encoding information, and they won't complain if a filename isn't UTF-8, even if that's your default encoding. NTFS/HFS require filenames to be in normalised UTF.

That isn't going to be a problem as long as all the files are created by the system itself. However, if you extract a ZIP archive containing (or bittorrent) files whose names are not UTF-8 encoded, then you're going to have a bunch of files whose names aren't UTF-8. Your Linux system won't care because all filenames are bytes as far as its concerned, so you're going to have to deal with the problem yourself.

What's more, as you probably know, there are often multiple ways to represent the same characters in UTF. UTF-aware filesystems will always normalise filenames in the same way, but Linux won't, so you could have multiple files, all called "Fücking Linüx", in the same directory (in unicode/UTF-8, ü can be represented as ü or u+¨).

Post by: wacko on Tuesday 24 September 2013, 01:07:00 AM
As you've doubtless heard, computers deal exclusively with zeroes and ones. So we've created all manner of ridiculously complicated schemes to map those zeroes and ones to things that are meaningful to us humans.

We're talking about the details of one way to map those zeroes and ones to letters, numbers and all the other parts of text. For a long time it was a nightmare because every different country used a different mapping that suited their alphabet, so your text file (which is really just a series of zeroes and ones), might read "abcd", "Bier", "Zørg" or some weird Japanese ideogram depending on which mapping you used. Now the problem is solved at first glance, as almost everyone is using the same mapping, but it really isn't.

Google never seems to run out of things to do. Their latest project: taking on Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. The popular party game has been made easier thanks to Google, who created a function that helps you figure out how closely linked any Hollywood star is to Kevin Bacon.

France: a History

Financial services, banking and the insurance sector are an important part of the economy. The Paris stock exchange (French: La Bourse de Paris) is an old institution, created by Louis XV in 1724. In 2000, the stock exchanges of Paris, Amsterdam and Bruxelles merged into Euronext. In 2007, Euronext merged with the New York stock exchange to form NYSE Euronext, the world's largest stock exchange. Euronext Paris, the French branch of the NYSE Euronext group is Europe's 2nd largest stock exchange market, behind the London Stock Exchange.

On 23 June 2007, the London Stock Exchange announced that it had agreed on the terms of a recommended offer to the shareholders of the Borsa Italiana S.p.A.

Bonds are issued by public authorities, credit institutions, companies and supranational institutions in the primary markets.

What we do know is that humans’ utter dominance on this Earth suggests a clear rule: with intelligence comes power. Which means an ASI, when we create it, will be the most powerful being in the history of life on Earth, and all living things, including humans, will be entirely at its whim—and this might happen in the next few decades.

If our meager brains were able to invent wifi, then something 100 or 1,000 or 1 billion times smarter than we are should have no problem controlling the positioning of each and every atom in the world in any way it likes, at any time—everything we consider magic, every power we imagine a supreme God to have will be as mundane an activity for the ASI as flipping on a light switch is for us. Creating the technology to reverse human aging, curing disease and hunger and even mortality, reprogramming the weather to protect the future of life on Earth—all suddenly possible. Also possible is the immediate end of all life on Earth. As far as we’re concerned, if an ASI comes to being, there is now an omnipotent God on Earth—and the all-important question for us is:

 

Will it be a nice God?

When you have drugs on you, also carry a helium balloon with you at all times. If you get busted by the cops, attach the drugs to the balloon and let go. The police will not be able to find the drugs, and they probably would get fired for shooting at a balloon. Unless you use a black balloon.

Quote
  • One Top Fuel dragster 500 cubic-inch Hemi engine makes more horsepower than the first 4 rows at the Daytona 500.
  • Under full throttle, a dragster engine consumes 1.2 gallons of nitro methane per second; a fully loaded 747 consumes jet fuel at the same rate with 25% less energy being produced.

In the wake of Google's AI Go victory, filmmaker Oscar Sharp turned to his technologist collaborator Ross Goodwin to build a machine that could write screenplays. They created "Jetson" and fueled him with hundreds of sci-fi TV and movie scripts. Shortly thereafter, Jetson announced it wished to be addressed as Benjamin. Building a team including Thomas Middleditch, star of HBO's Silicon Valley, they gave themselves 48 hours to shoot and edit whatever Benjamin (Jetson) decided to write.

There's a Finnish photographer called Sirkka Liisa Konttinen who's been working in and around Newcastle and the North East since the 60s, some of her stuff is also well worth a look :)

I really love the stuff she's done on NE beaches, but some of her stuff from pre-wall Byker is outstanding.  Can't find it at the minute cos I'm at work but there's a picture of a kid on a space hopper which I really, really love :thup:

And while we're at it, can we change the 24 hour, 60 minute, 60 seconds format as well? Something like a day is 20 hours, every hour is 100 minutes and every minute is 100 seconds. One "new" second would then be 0,432 seconds.

It's probably been mention but I just came across Khan Academy again while looking for tutorials on SQL, I tell you what the amount of content on there is ridiculous, for a free online educational piece of software, from grammar to physics to Programming. There are challenges and tests in various formats between each video and content, each video is minuted so if you missed something you can quickly scan through it and pick up what you missed. Would definitely recommend checking it out if you want to study something.

Aye, I disagree with him a lot of the time tbh. I think a lot of what he says works in an ideal world but kind of misses the historical context when he's making points about sexism and racism and so on. I thought that video on PewDiePie was pretty much spot on like, aside from it being for kids, like you say.

love owt like this me, but a nerdy nitpick: nearly all of the rokin was drained and filled in the 30s; this stuff was found whilst they were digging up the street for the new north-south metro line. all this stuff is going to be put in two big vitrines running up and down the escalators.

big fan of the presentation, online and off, and am sad enough to take a wander down to the station to have look when it opens next week. i'm trying to resist the temptation to drop eighty euros on the book (https://www.huismarseille.nl/en/store/harold-strak-willem-zoetendaal-stuff/).

Ace. I always find it pretty staggering to see such huge areas in those neat squares you guys seem to have everywhere (probably wrong).

:lol: If anyone else posted that video along with 'I love this series' I'd assume it's many episodes reviewing multiple foodstuffs. As it's tommy I instantly assume it's actually just multiple episodes of bacon reviews.

Can't be arsed with that s***, especially on an empty stomach. Did he guess the good stuff?
he did, except the turkey bacon, which no one likes anyway.

And to the two jokemeisters above :lol: It's just interesting to know how experts grade and identify the stuff. The cheese and bread ones in the series are very good too, as is his other meat one. Epicurious did well here.

I watched like 2 hours of some posh kid (who's clearly had daddy build him a workshop) making a Damascus steel chefs knife the other day.

Kid clearly has a real talent for editing videos and knows what he's doing in a workshop but f*** me the over the top accent was a killer. Sounded like he was trying to be Hugh Laurie's character from Blackadder. Had a look at the comments and practically every one of them was ripping into how annoying he was too.

Perfect advert for money not being a substitute for talent. Not in terms of his metalwork but in terms of his acting. If he hired someone with a proper personality to narrate/present stuff he'd probably be topping the trending charts.

I had this with Pocketcast a while ago. I had been using the setting that chops out all the silence and pauses for so long it sounded mental when I turned it off one day and everyone sounded like they were off their faces, spacing out in the middle of conversations.

I know a lot of people think the first couple of seasons are the best but, for me, there's barely an episode from seasons 3, 4, 5 and 6 that isn't great - probably peaking with Vegas. It obviously lost its way a bit but the finale was perfect.

I really don't get that. It's a lot more slapstick back then. Like when the cat jumps on his shoulder and he's trying to fling it off... it got a lot smarter.

I've not seen them for probably over a decade, but the earlier series felt a lot sharper for me. A bit cleverer and original in the humour. It was quite stupid, I suppose. Started to get more generic around series 3/4 I seem to remember though. Until it turned in to the vomit inducing laughter track soap opera it ended as.

That ep where they're all trying to get ready for Ross's thing is the peak of Friends IMO.  Just looked it up and that's series 3 ep 2.  Perfect ep.

First series is canny but they really hit their stride in 2-4.  I've seen them that many times it's difficult to take a step back and judge it properly but those series' are clearly a level above what came before or after it.

Series 5 onwards there is some gold there, some of the best moments in the show but it definitely starts getting worse.  The characters become exaggerated and 2 dimensional, a lot of the jokes are weak and stupid selfish w***** Chandler is in a happy relationship and not funny anymore.

I don't actually watch it anymore as I've seen them too much and it's a bit ruined but it used to be my go-to show to get in a happy-ish mood.

Whenever I rewatch Seinfeld or Friends I find myself most drawn to the earlier episodes. I think it's the life-cycle of sitcoms: after a couple of seasons shows find their rhythm, they understand the world they've created, characters become more integrated into their various plots and they find their voice and become more fully developed. But after that things can quickly become a little bit glib and repetitive: characters aren't developing anymore and they're not finding new laughs but instead relying on old ones.

By contrast I think the earlier episodes where characters are still finding their feet often feel a little bit more experimental and more natural. Seinfeld for instance stayed smart but became more self-referential after the first couple of seasons, whereas before it had carried a wider array of cultural references, and then in the later seasons it changed things up by becoming a bit more slapstick. I still think Friends holds up really well throughout, it's always watchable, but I always think that the two-part beach episode closing season three and starting season four marks a bit of a shift.

I mean the linked page at the top of the post does state it

METHODOLOGY & SOURCES
To create these maps, we started by reviewing various sources on the internet to locate the oldest company in each country. Once we had a list of business for each country we began researching each individual company to discover if they are still operational. If we were unsure about a company or could not discern if it was still open, we did not include it in the maps. We included both independent and state-run businesses in this list. This includes national mints, which produced coins for merchants and international customers as well as the state.

Those countries where it wasn’t possible to identify the oldest business have been greyed-out on the map. Additionally, some countries have changed names or didn‘t exist at the time the oldest company opened. In all cases we have used the current country names.

We created broad industry categorisations that grouped similar businesses together. Every step has been taken to ensure that the information contained within our research is as accurate as possible. However, it is possible that there are businesses still operating that predate the ones listed here.

I visited a couple in Louisiana.  One of them (https://www.whitneyplantation.org) was definitely worth the visit.  It had been turned into a museum and memorial to the slaves, and the guide didn't even mention the owners.  It was very respectfully done in the same way Auschwitz is.  The other one was Gone With The Wind revisionist history bollocks.

First, the team takes a plain old sheet of paper with a typical alphabetical keyboard, numeric keypad or even piano keys printed on it and places coats it with a neon-green, omniphobic solution, which repels just about everything, including dust, water and oil, reports Gizmodo's Victoria Song. The solution dries clear, and then the engineers can "print" circuit layers over the page without smearing the ink, according to a press release. The layers are constructed to be triboelectric, meaning friction generates its electricity. Essentially, each time a "key" is pressed, energy is produced, so the paper-based tablet is totally self-powered.

I f***ing love that sort or stuff.

There's one at St Pancras International.
When the wife and myself are down there shopping there's always some absolute genius on it.
From 12 year olds, to 21 year olds and one time a really old woman.
It is always excellent standard.
