  1. Fair enough. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  2. Understand the atmosphere on Mars (and being simulated here) is -very- thin. What that means is, even though the inflation rate is rapid by Earth standards, it's not particularly jerky (yes, a change in velocity is called jerk). quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    Buzz bike?

    Colin is definitely the guy you want to have on your side when the Mad Max dystopian hellscape civilization needs something built. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    Blade Runner 2049

    You just need to go to a better class of theater. Either that or demand the theater management BE better. A couple of problems with that. One is that I'd rather watch the movie that I paid for than go find some management. And at our local theater management is three kids at the counter. I guarantee the three minimum wage workers report to somebody. There's no law that says you can't contact that person at your leisure. Hell, make a phone call tomorrow and ask to talk to the owner. Tell him you'd love to visit more often, but every time you do the place is filled with loudmouth assholes. Tell him, you've been warning people to NOT go to his theater until he cleans up the shenanigans. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    Blade Runner 2049

    Except this is not how Hollywood works, and by Hollywood I mean the seven major motion picture companies that make up the MPAA. Fly by night stuff is what it is and sometimes blatantly just rips off stuff, but the majors figured out a bajillion years ago it's way better (cheaper) to do everything they can to clear stuff with authors and make deals well before production is greenlit than ever have to deal with controversy over ownership of product. On studio lots, there are literally buildings filled with lawyers that do nothing but work on clearances of all sorts. You pretty much can't take a dump without checking first with legal. Further, studios aren't even in charge of writing credits. That's a function of the Writers Guild as credit in films is part of the union agreement regarding residual payments. The original story by PKD "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep" was absolutely the inspiration for and credited by the Writers Guild for "Blade Runner." quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    Blade Runner 2049

    Liked both. The only things either have to do with PKD is the inspiration. Neither is a faithful representation of the PKD story. That said, both are in my opinion amazing works of science fiction. They take real-world issues and wrap them in a possible science-based future. In my opinion, that IS what good science fiction always does. It's the difference, in my mind between Star Trek and Star Wars. Star Trek, science fiction. Star Wars, space fantasy. Regardless of box office, BR2049 will go down as a worthy sequel. I thought they freakin' NAILED it. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    Get ready for a robot to film your jump

    These guys have been working on the design for quite a while now. They're skydivers themselves and are well aware of the challenges involved. It will be interesting to see where it all goes. There would be advantages and disadvantages. The thing that ultimately would concern me is it's something somebody from "the team" (formal or informal) would have to toss out of the plane and somewhat keep track of after breakoff and under canopy. I see that as more of a danger in several ways than any of the control issues. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver

    It is earthquake weather

    1. There is no such thing as "earthquake weather." 2. A cluster of minor earthquakes is -way- better than a great big one. They relive stress. That's a good thing (presumably). Dr. Lucy Jones is kind of the go to person for earthquake spokesperson. I subscribe to her on Twitter. https://twitter.com/DrLucyJones If there is anything happening anywhere in the seismology world that is significant, she'll be talking about it. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  13. It seems they have changed the terms: http://thehill.com/policy/technology/349826-users-checking-to-see-if-they-were-affected-by-the-equifax-hack-might-be Yep. Companies can always be counted on to "do the right thing" after being contacted by lawyers and Congressmen telling them what they're doing is complete and utter bullshit not allowed under the law. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  14. The other thing about signing up on their web site to notify you if you are affected . . . in signing up you have to agree to arbitration to settle any matters which may be a result of this. FUCK THESE GUYS. Why isn't there a "death penalty" for corporations? quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
  15. Wasn't it a website vulnerability that started all this, ya mopes. Now you want us to logon to another website you developed to see if we were affected?!??!??! Exactly. I really don't understand the ridiculous nature of their web site, their security oversight, all of it. It's bullshit. I HATE large companies and their cavalier attitude toward these massive databases. Yet, I guarantee there will be no governmental action to ensure this doesn't happen again. Fuck these guys. quade - The World's Most Boring Skydiver
