Happy Birthday(ish), Linus's baby. #Linux
Just 7.7% of devs are unpaid—because Linux development is worth paying for.

Proton radius puzzle confirmed. Standard Model broken for first time in history of quantum physics.
 
Time for new physics.
The proton's charge radius shouldn't change, and yet it appears to.

Not a fan of this new plan. The old plans had BingeOn as an option. New plan does not, and it becomes a Net Neutrality violation.
 
Based on what the group has read about T-Mobile One so far, the EFF says that T-Mo's new plan goes against net neutrality.
One day after the announcement of T-Mobile One, the new plan is giving some people concerns that it could violate net neutrality. EFF senior staff technologist Jeremy Gillula told the Daily Dot that, based on what his group has read about T-Mobile One so far, “it seems like T-Mobile’s new plan to charge its customers extra to not throttle video runs afoul of the principle of net neutrality.” He added that T-Mobile One’s ...

Phone Calls are Rude

If you're 30 or over, you may remember how back in the 80s and 90s, calling during dinner hours was considered rude. The hours between 5-7 were for the family, and you'd never have your meal interrupted by a phone call. But, maybe that was just a Midwest thing.

Prior to the phone, the main way to contact someone was via a letter. The first asynchronous form of human communication. Along comes the phone, and it basically kills most personal mail by fixing the latency problem. In fact, I don't think I've written a personal letter in my entire life. However, calls were a step backwards in a sense: phone calls are synchronous, you need to answer them and interact, or not get the message at all (answering machines aside).

With the Internet being so pervasive; email, texting, and instant messenger is in the progress of killing the phone. The only phone calls I make now seem to be to customer service departments. I don't even call for takeout/delivery anymore, now that you can do that online. Obviously, the need for live communication will never disappear, but there are plenty of better, unintrusive ways, to contact people that let them respond on their own time and leisure.

When I get a phone call now, I interpret it as someone saying: Stop doing whatever you are doing now, because whatever I am calling about is more important than that. Chances are, it really wasn't. Phone calls are rude.



Obviously, family and close friends are exempt... usually.

Physicist claims to have observed quantum effects of Hawking radiation in the lab for the first time
(Phys.org)—Jeff Steinhauer, a physicist at the Israel Institute of Technology, has published a paper in the journal Nature Physics describing experiments in which he attempted to create a virtual black hole in the lab in order to prove that Stephen Hawking's theory of radiation emanating from black holes is correct —though his experiments are based on sound, rather than light. In his paper, he claims to have observed the quantum effects of Hawkin...

My wife and i stayed there mid of August 2015 for 3 days. It wasn't all that great but not as bad as some others we stayed at. No breakfast provided at all. No room service food order of any kind. House keeping was ok but kept forgetting extra towels all 3 days.

This is a motel not a hotel. Leaking roofs, dirty towels, bugs i bathrooms and bad costumer service. If you're looking for a comfortable and clean place, look elsewhere.
