RT @Stammy: photojojo now does rentals.. wow and there's a link to a dronie tut on there!
Almost $200 in sales, over $25 raised for the OpenSSL foundation. Buy a shirt!

RT @bcrypt: dropbox spends more on alcohol during its yearly ski trip than OpenSSL has received in donations ever
Does this speak to how little OpenSSL gets in donations, or more about how much Dropbox spends on alcohol? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Is this a recruitment slogan for Dropbox? - Brian Johns
I was a hair's breath away from not sending this tweet.

If I made a device that burned gasoline in air at the same rate as an average car going 65mph, how big would the flame be? (cc @rjallain)
Assumptions: MPG = 32.5 - Ken Gidley
So, car burning about 2 gallons per hour. That converts to 2.103e-6 m^3/s. or 0.000002103 m^3/s. - Ken Gidley
not a huge flow of gas - Ken Gidley
Now assume we're using a bunsen burner like contraption, with a diameter of 0.01m (about .39 inches). The area of the opening of that burner would be: pi*(0.005m)^2 = 7.854e-5 m^2. - Ken Gidley
So the velocity of fuel exiting across that area would be: 0.0268 m/s - Ken Gidley
From this ( there is a formula for 'flame length' that looks like: length = const * velocity of gas * (diameter of burner + const2) * const3. (this is formula 8.4 in the paper). - Ken Gidley
Plugging in values for the constants (mostly from the same paper), I get a flame length of 1.5417e-6 m, or 6.0695e-5 inches. so 0.000060695 inches. I.e. not very big. :) - Ken Gidley
And I spent WAY too much time reading that paper to determine all this... :) - Ken Gidley
the constants are all related to the specific fuel being burned, and gasoline wasn't one of the values, so I used something similar - Acetylene. It burns a a pretty close rate to gasoline, from what I can find. - Ken Gidley
I've almost certainly gotten values wrong, since it doesn't make much sense to me. - Ken Gidley
We need to experimentally verify this. I volunteer Steve's house! - Brian Johns

There needs to be something like Eolian Talent Pipes, expect for the ENTIRE INTERNET.
That's really good. - Stephen Mack
RT @SlicedBreadUX: Are hamburgers bad for you(r users)? Using a hamburger menu halved user engagement for @zeebox via @TheNextWeb
I had no idea what they meant by "hamburger" here. But yeah, I would have agreed with the intuition, that hidden menus led to less interaction. Interesting to see the data especially with the A/B testing. - Stephen Mack

Awesome! Great job, Slacy. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
