A great visual to go along with Moore's Law :D
 
Technological Progress
All sorts of remarkable examples exist of the exponential progress of technology but I happened upon this one today and thought I'd share it with others.  Below is an image of a hard drive being loaded onto a plane via a forklift.  Also, in the link below you can purchase a key fob for $5.99 on Amazon.  The hard drive being loaded on the plane had 5mb of storage capacity.  The key fob has 16gb of storage capacity.  Judging roughly by size, they could have fit about 20 of those hard drives in that plane in 1956.  Thus, you'd need 160 planes to carry around in 1956 what you can carry in your pocket on a key ring today.  http://www.amazon.com/HP-v165w-16GB-Flash-Drive/dp/B009VQK3FQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1453642235&sr=8-1&keywords=gb+fob

Frightening. We need to do something. This direction we're currently heading in is wrong.

So my fancy shmancy +ORIGIN PC is broken because they sent me a borked coolant system.

Here is how it went down. This AM I was absolutely DONE with the super hyper noisy side panel. It vibrates and wiggles and is SO loud. So I took it off. It's the panel with the pretty plexiglas so you can see inside your beautiful machine. Don't get it. It's LOUD.

Upon removing it I suddenly notice three exhaust fans down below. They aren't moving at all. That's not right, I think. So I call tech support.

Through opening even more of my system (was easy) they ask me to spy out the wee power panel for the fans. I find it. They ask me how many plugs I see. I say three. "Should be four" he says. Three for the fans. One for power. Oh god, I think, it's just not plugged in!

After reaching my arm inside and behind the fans, I find the power cord twined up into a circle, tucked away. This immediately led me to believe that it had never been plugged in the first place. But since I had found it, I blithely plugged it in since that what the tech asked me to do and sure enough, they begin to spin!


Well we congratulated ourselves for a job well done and I hang up. Big. Big mistake. Within 5 minutes my computer blue screens and shuts down.

It would not turn back on. I waited a minute or two and see a quick flicker of a message before it shuts down again. "CPU overheat failure"

Really???

Yeah. Really. So whatever plugging in the power to the fans did it broke the whole fan system.

I noticed a couple things. The outtake pipes from the coolant system for the CPU plug right down into the three fans down there. Once I noticed that all kinds of red flags started flying.

Then whilst on the phone with another tech, he admits to me that the picture I sent of the coolant reservoir looks totally wrong and it shouldn't look like that.

I tell him it's looked like that since I unboxed it as a Christmas present last year.

He seems rather perplexed.

I mention the problems I've had earlier in the year with the very same coolant system. He seems vague at this point.

So basically what has happened to me is that we paid a premium price for a premium machine only to get roughshod work that took almost just long enough to go bad after warranty but didn't.

So now I'm forced (and I really am forced since no one anywhere deals with these high end systems let alone have the parts for it) to send this back to them and wait weeks. They were going to force me to pay both shipping AND for a crate to ship it in. But they "allowed" that since I've had such long term issues that they could send a crate "free of charge". Oh gee. How generous. I feel like such a treasured customer.

I am not even remotely happy or satisfied.

I understand this is the best option I'm forced to accept for the mere fact that coolant systems are thin on the ground. But I don't have to like it. Especially when I WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD TO DEAL WITH THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE HAD THEY SENT A WORKING MACHINE.

The viewer's interpretation of the advertisement cannot be massively judged as negative, that is directly related to the frame of reference. The hardest part is to affect and change the  collective incocient that acknowledges and reinforce this as harmless. Reading  the messages litteraly is one way, like this video but not that effective because semiotics will be always there. For me the respect to a woman (or ANY human being ) is not earned for its social , economical position or blood tie (that will be pretended) respect its earned by your  own actions.

Please share this with anyone you know who is an ignorant asshole. S/He MIGHT read it, and you never know, they might get infected with the truth.

From Star Wars to Mad Max, a new, more diverse kind of storytelling went mainstream this year - and the backlash shows how much it matters.

I think we are mostly in agreement that this is a problem, and it's not a little problem, either. And I hope you understand that I'm not suggesting we enable bigotry. Not even slightly. And there is no way I'd ever expect anyone to "play nice." (My God, Jen, I'd never dream of suggesting you'd mince words... And same with you, Doug.)

And I've written more & deleted it several times...

Pretty much only hipster assholes who themselves think they are some kind of special 'photographer' would think this is right.

If you're taking a photo and you give anything more than a second's thought to the artfulness of said photo, guess what? You're a photographer.

It doesn't mean you're an awesome one, or even a good one - but yeah, you are.

Sorry 'photographers' (and I include myself here) you're not that special. Of course, the really insecure ones will scream the loudest to make sure that they separate the REAL photographers from all the millions of others out there, too. Happy and secure photographers don't give a tiny rat's ass if someone wants to buy a DSLR and call themselves one. Guess what? Product will out.

Buck up, you special snowflakes you Photography is one of the most accessible and easy forms of art. Stop being so stuck up and allow the world to join in the fun. It doesn't harm your level of skill (or really, let's be honest here, total inflated sense of self-worth over your own photography). 

(Aside: you cannot drag and drop photos anymore to make a post? What total dogshit also I just sat here and had to re-edit the post 10x because it kept inserting * and _ where there was none. No wonder people left in droves. Maybe I'll finally make a public facebook.)

If you are opted in to the NewPlus interface, then you get the shitty photo functionality. If you are still accessing the OldPlus, you get the functional photo interface. I have Feedbacked, with great ire and carefully chosen wording, but I hold no hope.

Outstanding luck to have captured that! I wouldn't stick around I don't think haha
 
Meanwhile, back on planet Earth: Italy’s Etna Unleashes a Short but Spectacular Eruption

After what has been a quiet 2015, Etna saw one of its first paroxysms of the year. Over the last few weeks, the Voragina crater on Etna has been restless, with low level Strombolian activity that was mainly confined to the crater. However, last night, the Voragine crater unleashed a lava fountain that reached 1 kilometer (~3,200 feet) over the volcano with an accompanying ash plume that topped 3 kilometers (~9,800 feet). Even with all that intensity of eruption, the paroxysm was over in only 50 minutes.

Six different photographers, one subject. They capture 6 different final pieces because of an amazing twist.

Watch until the end. The last part actually got me choked up because as a photographer, I know exactly what they mean. ❤️

Very removing... Thats a lesson about me, and what I am...
I am what I have experienced... What I recovered from and the experiences I made myself happened to me... Which include what I've done to others, eigher good or not... Or neither... 
Keep yourself open for the next you... See the stroke come and welcome it if that's your will... One can refuse good and bad at times... And make mistakes...
