Dear chapel developers: did I really have to do this? #chapellanguage  
proc zero_buffer(in i: int , const n: int = 7): string{
    const l: int = (i:string).size;
    var   s: string;

    if(l<n){
        for z in 1..n - l{
            s += 0:string;
        }
        s += i:string;
    }
    else{
        s = i:string;
    }

    return s;
}

Note to self (okay all of the internet); don't read comments about mathematics on youtube, especially if those comments have to do with Cantor's ideas of Countably and Uncountably Infinite.

Water flowing through the city's pipes will generate electricity like a dam with none of the environmental consequences

Usually the source of pursue is from the change in elevation. It may or may not have gotten there by pumps. Usually not though. It makes sense when there is a natural source for the pressure. This is hydro power just like a hydro dam. We are just taking less of a pressure drop to convert to mechanical energy. I'd be curious to see the financial return if there is one. Can they stand on their own without tax subsidies? That's what is important to me.

I watched "The Fault in Our Stars" last night, and at some point a character states, "[t]here are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There's .1 and .12 and .112 and an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities." While the last statement is quite true, the initial reasoning is, in fact, false. There are the same number of numbers between 0 and 1 as there are between 0 and 2. The problem is that this ruined the sentiment the character was trying to potray to me. The author (or editor) should have fact checked. Maybe they did and didn't really understand what was being said. Anyway, here is a blog post on the subject.

Okay, now there is a real reason to forgo the RaspberryPi in favour of a Minix! Minix
