For those Java fans out there: today I learned that not only is java.util.Random not particularly random, it's also bloody slow. Changing from Math.random() to some magic bitshifts (link) cut my primitive cellular automata's simulation time by about 25%. Interesting stuff.

+Mahdi Milani Fard Thanks, and since then I got the same batch recommendation again, but I'm happy to leave that project behind :). Just having an instance over a static method really made the difference.

Very cool and well-documented project to build a super-sustainable house in Perth. 10 star basically everything, barely any need for mechanical heating or cooling in winter or summer. No reason why all new houses should be built any other way.

Feels good to be involved with some of the same government CRC grants!

+Mahdi Milani Fard The US is doing some really cool stuff with "nano houses" apparently. 4x3m boxes that contain everything a house needs, which is small enough to skip a lot of regulation too.

Best. Car. Ever. And the best part:

"Of note, during validation of Model S roof crush protection at an independent commercial facility, the testing machine failed at just above 4 g's. While the exact number is uncertain due to Model S breaking the testing machine, what this means is that at least four additional fully loaded Model S vehicles could be placed on top of an owner's car without the roof caving in."

Exciting application of the Oculus Rift that I hadn't considered.

Somehow I feel more interested in documentaries than gaming? Maybe I'm just getting old.

This is actually fantastic. As much as I want to live a long and prosperous life, having a story like this to tell would make it complete.

This one's for +Jeremy Roman ('s old team). #ergoemacs is another potential step function improvement in input bandwidth while waiting for a #Leap interpreter or BCI.

I suppose I'm lumping all accessibility together; it'd be great for quadriplegics/amputees. Apparently it works for Vim too, so not all is lost :).

Very casual and family-friendly pizzeria of excellent quality. The pizzas are delicious of course, and notably not very oily at all. The menu selection is great, and a large pizza can comfortably feed two average people for about $10 each.

Despite the somewhat worrying reviews, I've been here a handful of times and always had the kind of service I'd expect from a nice restaurant. The pastas are varied and delicious (especially the Telefono, if you're into cheese), and the free bread is always great.

The best chicken and avocado focaccia I've ever had. We go for lunch every other weekend, and the food is consistently great quality and well proportioned for the reasonable price. Service is very occasionally slow or forgetful, but has always been friendly. Great place for a casual, satisfying lunch.

Consistently fantastic food. We are regular takeaway customers, the preparation time is always around 15 minutes, and the food is always ready when I go to pick it up. I've only eaten in once, but it was very comfortable and I keep meaning to go back.

Deceptively large, delicious curries for extremely reasonable prices. Very authentic as Indian restaurants go in the US, and just a very comfortable and satisfying restaurant to be in.
