Cool Random Internet Stuff

I'm surprised this thread hasn't been started here yet.  I'll start off by sharing 32 Stunning Photos of San Francisco in the 40s and 50s

@KrunchTime,

Beautiful photographs of my favorite city! If cities can have a soul, San Francisco must be somewhere toward the top of the list.

Btw, great idea to re-start this thread.  smile

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

yesterday i was told that teachers should learn to code, because younger and younger pupils also learn it.
this was the link they gave us: http://learn.code.org/hoc/1
sigh...
not sure what to think of it.

when i was 10, they had home computers on display in every department store.
usually i "programmed" them like this:

10 PRINT "(whatever immature bs came to mind)"
20 GOTO 10

that wasn't so hard, was it?
and completely without tons of javascript or angrybirds...

Mane6 is now officially in full development mode on Them's Fightin' Herds.

Sometimes a C&D against a fanwork (the game was originally conceived as "Fighting is Magic" and based on a Hasbro franchise) can lead to something better.

Interesting article.

Radio signals from space, megalithic structures orbiting distant suns.

The makings of a great space opera right there.

Re: Cool Random Internet Stuff

@Temetka,

You never know. The day will come when we actually detect an artificially generated signal, the equipment used gets better every year.. Just a matter of time.

@Head_on_a_Stick,

That's what I thought too but apparently a different phenomenon. GRB's are more energetic, spectrum's completely different. They're single component events typically caused by the merger of neutron stars, Hypernovas from collapsing super giants or white dwarfs going thermonuclear and the events which initiate them are usually detectable by other means. FRB's are a different animal and this event is really weird. Aliens? Don't know but it's fun to be stumped.

I think the Drake equation makes it a mathematical certainty of finding 'detectable' civilizations in our galaxy alone.

By combining say, Ubuntu and Google Chrome, you can have a very secure and easy-to-use platform running the world's best web browser.

I see at least two things wrong with that sentence alone.  (No offense intended to Ubuntu, but to the writer's apparent bias for Ubuntu over other distros and his omission of all non-Google browsers.)

I read an obvious bias by the author of the article as well. Having said that, with so many people still using 32bit systems(including your's truly, on 2 of 3 machines) and so many people using the Chrome browser.. I thought it important enough to post here.

I think it goes without saying(or should), A link offered, does not constitute an endorsement given.

Yeah, I'm aware some think his equation contains a few liberally applied variables within it. However, even applied conservatively, the results are thought provoking. So much so in fact, these two have devoted their professional lives to it.
