"The Barabar Caves are some 35Km north of Gaya, in the state of Bihar. They were visited by author E.M. Forster on one of his two visits to India. Struck by their curious echo, he used them as a central location in his book 'A Passage To India', renaming them 'The Marabar Caves' for the story. The Marabar Caves don't really exist. Well, that's almost true. You can find out more about them on my Marabar Caves page, but for now, lets talk Barabar." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

I love Slack. Wish I could use it on projects I am on now. Still a bit sore from Glitch being shutdown though. - Me
I sent my boss the link the other day. I like the channel aspect, not to mention all the integration features. - NOT THE CRICKET
I never got into Glitch. It was nice, but I've been in so many games that snowball into maintenance - which I found the original version to have been doing - I tend to drop out after a week. I want fun, not another job. - NOT THE CRICKET
I wish we could use it. - joey from iPhone
The company I was with earlier this year was using it. They used the free version which was fine for them (no long term storage of history.) Had PagerDuty hooks that send notices in when something would bork in production. Then just the plain usage of the apps across all platforms was just ... Easy. Which is saying a lot. No real learning curve to use it. Its reminds me of ICQ, but with current geek hacking expectations. - Me

If hospitals weren't capable of containing virulent, potentially fatal infectious diseases, just based on the things I've seen during med school/residency, we'd all be dead/dying of XDR TB, pan-resistant E. coli, and/or variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease by now. People panicking because Emory has two patients with Ebola need to calm down.
The ability of an airline to contain virulent, potentially fatal infectious diseases is another matter, though. - Victor Ganata

On USB being reprogrammable. Many devices have ROM for a base boot image that can boot from NVRAM or other locations and reprogram the NVRAM. NVRAM will often have double the size so you can fit two boot images, one upgrade and one old for rollback. These have always been programmable if you know what you are doing.
I'm a little surprised USB is programmable because these are mass consumer devices where margins matter, which means ROM, but I guess USB is complicated enough that an upgrade was expected. The larger point is pretty much nobody knows anything about the actual hardware they use. - Todd Hoff

Push For Pizza Is Yo For Food Delivery | TechCrunch
"While apps like Seamless and Postmates have made it easier than ever to order food with almost no hassle, sometimes having to look through options is just too much of a pain. With Push For Pizza, five teens from Brooklyn have created an app that makes it simpler still to get sustenance delivered to your door." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Push For Pizza sounds like something a stoned teenager would come up with while weighing the pros and cons of ordering food late at night: “I’m super hungry, but I don’t want to interact with people or decide between a bunch of options. If only there were another way…”" - rönin

Am I wrong to feel irritable when a free service, where I was encouraged to sign up, says it's going to charge (I've never really used it)--and the site offers no way to say "Remove my account"? (I've sent support email. Clearly, they won't/can't actually charge me, but I don't care for the Second Life "Hotel California" model.)
Not naming the service for now, because they seemed sincere about trying to do the right thing. - Walt Crawford
They took care of this rapidly, so I still won't name the service (which I suspect is an excellent one for some folks, just not for me). - Walt Crawford
I'm not sure they've completely thought through all that and they didn't set it up that way from the beginning so they're trying to retrofit? I'm not sure what i'm going to do because i really can't pay that right now, but I want to and I don't want a waiver. - Christina Pikas
I'm trying to decide because most of the things I have on it aren't 'traditional scholarly' enough for it to really understand so I have conference papers labeled as articles, articles labelled as unknown, all the things labelled as webpages, and a whole failure of deduplication. Which isn't that the system sucks so much as that my stuff's a mess, but I can't manually fix it. --I am more likely to go with the annual subscription model they've just announced. - Deborah Fitchett

"MOE (Metric Optimization Engine) is an efficient way to optimize a system's parameters, when evaluating parameters is time-consuming or expensive." - Amit Patel
"MOE is ideal for problems in which the optimization problem's objective function is a black box, not necessarily convex or concave, derivatives are unavailable, and we seek a global optimum, rather than just a local one. This ability to handle black-box objective functions allows us to use MOE to optimize nearly any system, without requiring any internal knowledge or access. To use... more... - Amit Patel

Home after five days at camp in the Mendocino Woodlands. We had a day trip to the tide pools, and enjoyed good food and the company of excellent friends. Hikes and swim holes. No cell service there (good electronics break). What did I miss?

First-Ever Images of Er Wang Dong Cave, A Cave With Its Own Weather System | Weather Underground
"These are the first-ever images taken of Er Wang Dong, one of the world's most recently discovered natural wonders — a cave so large it has its own weather system. A team of 15 expert cavers and photographers had been exploring caves in the Chongquing province of China, reported the Daily Mail. They found the entrance to the hidden Er Wang Dong cave system and were stunned to see a space so large it contains a cloud. In Cloud Ladder Hall, which measures about 12½ acres, or about 12 football fields, fog conceals the roof 820 feet above." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
