Well done Randall!

Anyone who wants to learn a whole lot more should visit the epicenter of SOPA/PIPA resistance.

Re: 1002: "Game AIs"

If aliens came to Earth, the only game of ours I think we could get them interested in would be Go, and I think they would really like it. No other game quite captures the scale problem (forest vs. trees) like Go.

Re: 0969: "Delta-P"

Hydrodynamics humor FTW! Fun Quiz: Kids, show your skills and estimate how long it would take to empty all the oceans! Remember, as you drain the ocean, d in Randall's equation will decrease. Rename d as h. Then: dh/dt = -k sqrt(h) You can assume water transports horizontally instantaneously so the ...

Re: 0966: "Jet Fuel"

For what it's worth, here's what I think happened. It's close enough to the inside job theory for me to be equally angry. 1. White House has agenda to get Saddam from Day 1. (Source: Paul O'Neill book) 2. Intelligence warns white house of impending attack. (Well known) 3. White House figures it will...

Re: 0963: "X11"

All the talk of Linux *or* Windows is missing the point. Why not Linus *and* Windows? Windows because my users, customers, and vendors all use it. Linux to do backups, rsync, local Webserver, private Wiki, ssh, etc. And if someone wants to imprison themselves in a Mac they are free to do it somewher...

I like the S shape of the curve. I hope it's intentional. I interpret it to mean that if he hasn't fiddled with xorg in a while he starts to miss it.

Re: 0878: "Model Rail"

Whoops! All the way to page 2 before someone noticed 18 miles is not 18 meters. Otherwise that's a pretty small town.

EDIT: Er, um, I see, the first one is in their basement. Well, one mile is still a pretty small space to fit all that town and mountain into.

Re: "Infrastructures" discussion

There was an alternative to .doc in 2003? Wow! I was 16 and still writing Watership Down fan fictions on a windows 98 computer. I think most people were (16 and writing WDFF on Win98) I guess I was pretty late to catch on to open source. I blame dial up. Guys, surely it's much easier to send everyt...
