Cast Iron Pans are the best for frying stuff. Braising, simmering, etc, not so much. But if you're frying almost anything, cast iron is the best. »
The RX100 is a beast, though. Great choice for a walking-around camera, and images that for most purposes are indistinguishable from those taken with a DSLR or MILC. I will pick one up eventually. :D »
They might. ICS and before had such crappy audio interface that it's tough to make an audio app that matters. For instance, FL Studio is out for Android, and it's finally cool (on Android), though still requires a lot more horsepower on Android for the same tasks on iOS and still has considerably more latency than it… »
I use Pcalc, but I've always loved the way the IOS calculator turns into an advanced version of itself when you flip the phone on its side. »
They haven't fixed it because people love to talk about how many apps are in a given app store - Windows, Android, iOS, App... Getting rid of the scam apps would cut the number in half. »
Not only that, but the lack of a denominator means the claim made by the graphic is just as unsupported as the conclusion you point out as flawed.
People are bad at stats. »
Wow. This whole chain of comments plays fast-and-loose with the meaning of the word "real". It causes us no end of confusion in our communication, year after year, decade after decade, century after century.
"Christmas is a real event", for instance. That's got a whole pisswad of layers, and assumptions all rolled up… »
My log files are always filled with failed password attempts from APAC addresses. I've got a script that blackholes traffic from an address after three or four bad attempts. I get port scans from APAC and Russian frequently, too. This tool would go berserk if it were on my internet facing port, and on the internal… »
0% is almost always a win (provided you can afford the payment). You get to use someone else's money at no cost. *shrug*. If I had the cash laying around in an account, I'd still take a 0% note and stick the cash in some investment or other. »
Read the typical hetero romantic relationship as written by the average male writer, and then read the typical hetero romantic relationship as written by the average female writer, then reconsider your advice :D »
"I finally figured out how the lottery contributes to education. Every time I buy a losing ticket, I get a little smarter."
And my personal favorite:
"The lottery is a tax on people who are bad at math." »
Right, I was gonna say that. Brown eggs produced the same way white eggs are produced are going to taste pretty much the same. But most of the pasture-raised free-range chicken farms use layers that drop brown ones. One of the local farms our butcher gets eggs from produces blue/green tinted eggs along with brown and… »
"I'd also point out that one reason people recommend working in industry for awhile is because most young people's ideas for new businesses are incredibly naive and ignorant about the crushing amount of detail and nuance that goes into operating in some of our economy's more complex sectors."
And the amount of WORK… »
Thanks for this, Dan and Andy. Mr. Ariely is one of my heroes - at least, one of my favorite researcher/author/scientist/etc. Great stuff. And Scrivener IS the bomb, I say. :D »
Lots of people find themselves in situations where noise isolation from the outside in is not critical, and in those circumstances, the Grados (SR80, for instance) kick the shit out of anything under $300 that I've listened to. I can listen to them in my office while the family sleeps, or when I'm on a customer site… »
This is the go-to technique for most aggressive canines; give it your non-dominant arm/hand (so it doesn't get your face, neck, armpit, etc) then proceed to damage it with your free arm. You can try it with a puma, but it's unlikely to be very useful. With them, keep them in front of you and keep your chin tucked,… »
