    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    Well no, I think I meant a higher proportion?

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    Right, if the hospital line is below the ventilated line, it means a lower proportion of hospital patients are ventilated than was the case on the scale-setting date. A lower proportion of cases going to hospital over time is going to be some combination of vaccination, increased testing, and...

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    Yeah I wondered about that, though I don't think the owner of said Windows computer wants to lose any features, and there's the scanning question too.

    Global Chip Shortage Threatens Production of Laptops, Smartphones and More

    In my house we have a USB printer attached to a Windows computer which was sharing it on the network, every few months a Windows update made the sharing stop working until we found some setting to change, until a few weeks ago when we didn't manage to get it working again. I said "let's get a...

    Python enviroment setup

    The boundary between compiler and interpreter has got a bit blurred nowadays. But since that program is conventionally called "the Python interpreter", people will understand better if you call it that too. So, you have a Python interpreter that somebody else compiled, but it's not working...

    Python enviroment setup

    If you've compiled the "python" executable, normally you would run a .py file with `python myfile.py`, is GP2X different? Why would you need to write a compiler?

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    With some groups saying the spike protein is bad for you, won't it also be bad for you if you catch the virus?

    A question for those that had Pandoras and have their Pyras now

    On the Pandora I felt the keyboard was stiffer than I'd like, not all keys took the same amount of force, and I did have some issues with not being sure when I'd actually managed to press one.

    A question for those that had Pandoras and have their Pyras now

    Hmm, I'd been hearing before that the keyboard feel would be better, but people don't seem to be saying that. If I don't much like the Pandora's keyboard, will I like this one better?

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    But masks are a lot more effective at protecting other people from you than at protecting you from other people. It would make more sense to end that sentence with "wear a mask at home"!

    Mailing list has changed

    I was wondering about whether the people who write most of the messages are doing it by email. And if the web interface is really a view into something else, it's not about whether 2D or tree is itself better, but about which gives a clearer view of that something else.

    Mailing list has changed

    With forums like this one vs tree-structured forums, people change the way they post depending which type it is. With a mailing list, if the main posters are reading it by email and the website is just a view onto that, I guess the logical structure of the conversation gets built onto the...

    The Unanswered Questions Post

    As I said, putting on the jacket and then taking it straight off again doesn't seem to do this. Hence my slightly-more-complex theory above. I could do some experiments to test it.

    Been Away for a While - Where are We?

    IIRC there was also the question about whether the chip shortage might delay later units.

    The Unanswered Questions Post

    After an injury, it does make sense that the body's systems are spending those seconds assessing whether we're under attack, to determine what the blood should be doing. I knew that certain combinations of materials transfer electrons from one to the other when rubbed together, and if your body...

    The Unanswered Questions Post

    Why do minor cuts often start bleeding like 20 seconds after the accident? Why do I get a static shock from touching ground after removing a fleece jacket I've been wearing for a while, but not if I'm still wearing it, or if I just put it on and take it off again?

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    When I first heard about SARS-Cov-2, I thought it was going to be another one like SARS or ebola, of the "bad news happening somewhere else" sort. But then it turned out to be way more infectious than those. For bird flu, we have had lockdowns for bird-keepers in the UK (basically have to keep...

    COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic

    Right, they say it needs 2 weeks to reach full effectiveness, and most people who take it are finished with the side effects within 2 weeks. I also wondered how many of the "vaccinated" people in hospital with covid only had one dose, or had their second dose less than 2 weeks ago. Most reports...

    The Lottery and Gambling Thread

    When you win a little it makes you want to play more, but most likely you'll lose in the end. But then, I'm sure you knew that ;)

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    I was thinking that if they already had their place reserved, a lot of people might not be not so quick to jump on it as new customers who wanted to grab a place.
