It's called "hard drive" because it's hard to access all that data...
 
Hey +Cory Altheide, they're heading down to forensics now. Think you can pull data off that... uhh... ATX power supply?

I was so disappointed to discover this isn't in fact a real publication.

#signalboost  for the summer. TL;DR: Drowning doesn't look like drowning.

Please reshare. It might save a life.
Drowning doesn't look like drowning. It's time for the annual re-post of maritime safety expert and former USCG rescue swimmer +Mario Vittone 's article.

What's happening physiologically when someone is drowning -- why it doesn't look like on TV:

1. Except in rare circumstances, drowning people are physiologically unable to call out for help. The respiratory system was designed for breathing. Speech is the secondary or overlaid function. Breathing must be fulfilled before speech occurs.

2. Drowning people’s mouths alternately sink below and reappear above the surface of the water. The mouths of drowning people are not above the surface of the water long enough for them to exhale, inhale, and call out for help. When the drowning people’s mouths are above the surface, they exhale and inhale quickly as their mouths start to sink below the surface of the water.

3. Drowning people cannot wave for help. Nature instinctively forces them to extend their arms laterally and press down on the water’s surface. Pressing down on the surface of the water permits drowning people to leverage their bodies so they can lift their mouths out of the water to breathe.

4. Throughout the Instinctive Drowning Response, drowning people cannot voluntarily control their arm movements. Physiologically, drowning people who are struggling on the surface of the water cannot stop drowning and perform voluntary movements such as waving for help, moving toward a rescuer, or reaching out for a piece of rescue equipment.

5. From beginning to end of the Instinctive Drowning Response people’s bodies remain upright in the water, with no evidence of a supporting kick. Unless rescued by a trained lifeguard, these drowning people can only struggle on the surface of the water from 20 to 60 seconds before submersion occurs.”

This doesn’t mean that a person that is yelling for help and thrashing isn’t in real trouble—they are experiencing aquatic distress. Not always present before the Instinctive Drowning Response, aquatic distress doesn’t last long—but unlike true drowning, these victims can still assist in their own rescue. They can grab lifelines, throw rings, etc.

Look for these other signs of drowning when persons are in the water:

Head low in the water, mouth at water level
Head tilted back with mouth open
Eyes glassy and empty, unable to focus
Eyes closed
Hair over forehead or eyes
Not using legs—vertical
Hyperventilating or gasping
Trying to swim in a particular direction but not making headway
Trying to roll over on the back
Appear to be climbing an invisible ladder

The moves - they work.

This is a video released by Jehovah's Witnesses to deaf people explaining why they shouldn't masturbate. Someone decided to dub over it with a 50 Cent song. Brilliant. You have to watch this video. No seriously.

Thanks +eBay ... There's a bug in shopping cart handling that silently duplicates items to buy when requesting a total from the seller and the operation fails with an 'Error 80000, please try again later'. Now I have to sort this out with the seller.

It is 2016. Retried POST requests still seem to be a an unsolvable problem... And there are earlier reports of this issue dating back years.

Hervorragende Kueche und perfekter Service zu einem mehr als angemessenen Preis. Auf Anhieb ein wenig schwer zu finden, aber dadurch auch ein echter Geheimtipp. Durch die Lage sehr zu empfehlen als Kroenung eines Bodensee-Wochenendes.
