Hey MOO cards, what is this!?
Screen Shot 2015-02-14 at 16.20.14.png
I uploaded images that were 1039 x 697 pixels. It complained. - Amit Patel
Well, 1039 is less than 1039.3700787401576 so it's understandable. - Mark H
Yes indeed, it's 102 square pixels too small ;-) That aside, Moo is great. - Nils Sandin
I order moo cards once a year. Each year I update the images on the back, and leave the front the same. It's a nice reminder of the projects I worked on, and it gets me started preparing mentally for Game Developers Conference :) - Amit Patel

Great storm pics out of east and south san jose https://twitter.com/sbaker — roads, houses, cars are covered in hail

Nice share. We got a double rainbow in Sunnyvale and some squall, but not hail! - Louis Gray

Thank you so much for the Red Blob website! Someone should mirror/archive it, just in case. It's probably one of the best resources about gamedev-related algorithms I have ever seen. - VHS planet
Thanks lizards! — it's being archived on web.archive.org - Amit Patel
Great! Keep up the good work :) - VHS planet

TL;DW: put an IR camera inside to see the temperature of the food, and then a screen on the front of the microwave to show the temperature what's inside. You can then see when it turns all white, it's hot (on the outside at least). - Amit Patel
And then also use the screen for other purposes. - Anne Bouey
Advertisements of course! - Amit Patel
Haha! Of course. - Anne Bouey

I never expected large parts of Texas to be devoid of "dude". - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
They seem to be missing an east coast equivalent, at least in the purple maps. - John (bird whisperer)
Given that "dude" started out as a term cowboys used for city slickers (as in "dude ranch"), maybe it didn't migrate to the other meaning because it was still being used for the old meaning. - Spidra Webster
Do you even dude, bro? - Micah from FFHound!
Gentleman from Odessa...because a gentleman in Odessa would be a real SOB anywhere else. - Greg GuitarBuster

Heh, I wonder if "dude" is one of the first reappropriated insults :D I remember watching an episode of "Maverick" where it had the even older connotation that was akin to "metrosexual" - The Etymology of Dude - Slate - 2013 Nov 5 http://www.slate.com/blogs... - Victor Ganata

The Science of Why No One Agrees on the Color of This Dress | WIRED
"The fact that a single image could polarize the entire Internet into two aggressive camps is, let’s face it, just another Thursday. But for the past half-day, people across social media have been arguing about whether a picture depicts a perfectly nice bodycon dress as blue with black lace fringe or white with gold lace fringe. And neither side will budge. This fight is about more than just social media—it’s about primal biology and the way human eyes and brains have evolved to see color in a sunlit world." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
Why cant we all agree that its a horrible dress and a shitty picture? - Me
This series of photos really illustrates what's going on, though. - Spidra Webster
Sorry still don't like it. Just not my style or color.. what ever color you see it in. :D - Me
Around an hour ago I checked the Pebble Time kickstarter and it was at $9.9999 million, so I hit refresh, and it hit $10.0000 million, whee.
For real? Ten billion? What's Kickstarter's share? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Oh, that's a period, not a comma. Ten million, not ten billion. Still amazing. Carry on! - Stephen Mack

Oregon's speed limits signs say "SPEED" not "SPEED LIMIT". One of the posters on this forum says: - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"under Oregon law speed limit signs say just "SPEED" (not "SPEED LIMIT") to indicate that the limit in question is prima facie in nature, not absolute--in other words, you can defend yourself against a speeding citation by showing that your speed, even if it was in excess of that posted, was not unsafe under the conditions. "SPEED LIMIT" signs were rolled out for Interstates and school... more... - Amit Patel

Most decade-specific words in Billboard song titles
"David Taylor looked for words in Billboard song titles that appeared during a given decade more than other decades. Then he charted usage for the top five of each decade, going back to 1890." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
"For example, look at those words in the 1920s: blues, pal, sweetheart, rose, and Mammy. This decade: we, yeah, hell, f, and die. Mm, classy." - Amit Patel

Found a map of the construction work going on at the 880/280 interchange
Screen Shot 2015-02-16 at 06.34.30.png
Northbound 280 used to have an exit for 17 south and 880 north. It's now going to have 2 lanes for 17 south, 2 lanes for 880 north, and … 3 lanes for people trying to get to the mall. - Amit Patel
Northbound 17 exiting to the mall and northbound 280 exiting to the mall used to have to merge and weave; now they get their own dedicated lanes. NB 17 gets 2 lanes to the mall and NB 280 gets 3 lanes to the mall, merging into a **5 lane exit** for people going to the mall. And that's just northbound. - Amit Patel
It looks like southbound 17 has 4 lanes to Stevens Creek plus 1 lane bypassing that, to go to the mall more directly. - Amit Patel
And I can't tell for sure but it looks like Stevens Creek between 880 and the mall will be … 11 lanes! - Amit Patel
The construction there has been a nightmare for years. Looks like that nightmare is ongoing. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I just drove down 101 from SF to MTV and was amazed by how nice it is. I had been avoiding it because of all the construction, but now it's nice :) so I hope 280/880 becomes nice too. - Amit Patel
The part near Shoreline? I don't like how if you're taking Shoreline to 101 South or 101 South to 85 South there's this weird crossover spur that can get backed up, but it does look nice! - Stephen Mack from iPhone

A theory of changes for higher-order languages — incrementalizing λ-calculi by static differentiation | Lambda the Ultimate - http://lambda-the-ultimate.org/node...
"If the result of an expensive computation is invalidated by a small change to the input, the old result should be updated incrementally instead of reexecuting the whole computation. We incrementalize programs through their derivative. A derivative maps changes in the program’s input directly to changes in the program’s output, without reexecuting the original program." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
