Nah, I never was a racer. Though I did get 178mph on the M4 one night*

I was going to get a CBR650f. But since I will be travelling/commuting I want a more comfortable ride. With that in mind I chose the Vulcan S. It's the first bike I will be hitting the streets with (I used to dirt bike).

PS: I also love the Duke

I suddenly saw this

http://www.pcgamer.com/steam-games-number-of-too-many/
Easy example – watch Steam – hi have 10+ new games every week
...
Do we really need so many games?

It's quite interesting - how people in different part of the world, can see and talk about the same things)
This gives hope in many senses of the word.

p.s And I watched my old Source code (open source) - it looks horrible XD
In memory, he was much better,
I feel very sorry for it, but he was the best that I could write in past

pp.s my solution add moderatable tags to games ^^
(FPS with Craft, FPS with Open world etc..)

Last night a M4.8 earthquake hit north-northeast of Victoria, Canada, 11:40pm PST. The Lower Mainland really felt it. Probably what was going through all our heads at one point was "is this the big one?"

Happy new year to all!
I had a very quiet new years eve at home.
I learned a little about how to use mathematica. It's a cool program, really takes the grunt work out of solving equations and differentiation.
Being able to just type a new function and see how a formulaic model is affected is really cool, instead of working through all the algebra by hand which can take days and I'm never totally sure that I did it right.
But I'm surprised at how few tutorials I could find. Many are very slow and boring videos, whereas I learn better from written examples with explanations. I guess mathematica mustn't be a hugely popular program.

To celebrate the new year, I was out and about on my slippery roof, fidgeting with a solar panel to finetune its orientation. Happy with the result I attempted to reenter the attic through the tiniest of windows, at which point the window pane detached, hit me in the head causing me to lose balance, trip over, tumble over the edge of the roof, plummeting head first 20 feet to the ground, leaving a Manhattan sized crater in my garden, after which a bemused 'ouch' escaped my lips. There is an interestingly shaped bump on the back of my head, but I'm glad I lived to tell the tale. Solar power is freaking dangerous.

Thank goodness you're ok! That's pretty unlucky that the window frame came loose. Geez, you could have broken your back or neck. You must have fallen into some bushes that broke the fall?

I was also looking into solar power, but when I realised how little electricity I use during the day when I'm at work and the sun is shining, I ditched the idea.
Before solar is economical, I think that Tesla or some other company have to make cheaper batteries. Here's an interesting article about that:

No worries, I was already mostly inside when the window frame came loose. There was also no Manhattan sized crater to be found, they say.

Grid tied setups are still profitable, with about 5-10 years ROI when your supplier has decent feed-in tariffs. Given you live in sunny Australia, it's bound to be closer to 5 years. Off-grid setups are not economical, unless you depend on a beefy generator + battery bank for your electricity - keep in mind batteries themselves also have an efficiency of 80-90%, people forget to factor that in... Given that solar panel prices continue to fall rapidly, slowly gain in efficiency and lithium battery cycle counts are rapidly increasing, the best economic decision seems to wait it out... but where's the fun in that.

@CommanderKeith: I barely use any electricity either. Typical residential USA power consumption seems to be 908 kWh / month, according to that article. Note that that is roughly my annual electricity usage... Most of my power usage is from the fridge, then the perpetually busy USB chargers, then my PC / laptop, then lighting (all LED). I wouldn't even know how to increase my power consumption ten-fold. Certainly an airco would get me a tad closer. Long story short: solar panels are not economical for me either, but I like to tinker Smiley Soon all USB powered devices and lighting will be running off solar + lithium battery bank (no inverter, 12V throughout the house, with a few 12V/5V converters for the last meters -- yes, thick cables).

Haha, I have to stop reading your posts literally.

That's interesting about the feed in tariff, i didn't realise that it exists in different countries. They had it here too but it just ran out and was not extended as far as I know.
There's a pay back calculator here which is interesting, and you're right that its a 5yr payback. It's calibrated to australia but you could substitute dutch figures:

http://www.solarchoice.net.au/blog/solar-power-system-payback-calculator

However the firm who made this model are obviously selling solar panels so they use over optimistic inputs such as 70 percent usage of the solar power even though you're not at home using power while at work.

@SHC Why is the trumpet — I assume it is a trumpet, or at least some kind of wind instrument — blurred out so much? I guess you could just have it alone, unblurred, and that would make a simple enough logo. Or just make the "<AL>" smaller perhaps? And also maybe add a background, something green or blue would do fine imo. Pointing

@Riven that must have been absolutely terrible. (Also why is the "insert quote" button to the upright side of each message under the message editor not working?)

Safety Third. Pointing

I was never in any danger guys. I am so careful with these things that even if I'd suddenly lost consciousness whilst on the roof, and dropped like a ragdoll, nothing would have happened, as I had myself tied to a 1920 era solid chimney, with only a few loose bricks, mostly held together by gravity, crumbly when leaned against, impervious to anything but water since the early 1960's. So only if my supposedly unconscious zombie mind would have decided to actively leap off the roof, no longer capable of suppressing the urge for brainz - taking with me the glorious masonry - I would've been in serious trouble.

Just murdered another mosquito making the count to 4.

Amateur. My walls (and 1 window) are covered with the two-dimensional remains of those suckers (and a bit of my blood).

18 confirmed kills since the last time I cleaned them all off (a month or so ago). 14 with a book against the wall and 4 with bug spray (because I can't reach the ceiling).

I'd like to think that the violent display of what happens to mosquitos is what has scared them all off lately, but it's probably the fact that I now keep my windows shut all the time.
