It's a floppy disk fax machine! You can fax floppies to other people who have these things.
Check out what I got today. You can tell it's something weird as fuck just from the box...
It's a floppy disk fax machine! You can fax floppies to other people who have these things.
It's some software to help you sell cars, apparently! it was weird and cheap, so I got it. I'll of course image it.
It turns out they include a Visual Basic program to register it, then you just FISK it back to the company.
And yeah, they expect you to use that if you're getting a lot of files.
It's FISK, by Fisk Communications, Inc.
Filed July 16, 1990, dated June 30, 1992.
They're for future use, only.
I saw a reference to flash memory, so this thing was supposed to be upgraded in the field, apparently?
From the Nov 14, 1994 issue of Network World.
So it must have enough brains to parse the filesystem, eh?

we should apply that logic to the current generation of consoles.
So the Switch is a 256bit console. It's the Nintendo 256.
The Xbox Series X? terrible name.
Better call it the "Xbox 512 Blu-ray".
like the Jaguar CD, the Sega CD... the good old days when consoles had their media type in the name.
Boringly the PS5 is also a Playstation 512 Blu-ray, because both of them are using the same AMD Zen 2 CPU.
The Switch one is weeeird. It's built on an Nvidia Tegra X1, which is an 8 core 64-bit CPU, so that should be 512, right?
Well... no. Four of them can't be used. And later documentation doesn't even mention them.
it's some weird system where the system-on-a-chip has four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores but only the A57s are usable?
foolish people like to quote that "science says there are only two genders". This is incorrect.
Science instead says that in addition to the regular genders, there are 25 Science Genders, shown here. (tag yourself I'm Skull)
I have no idea how to continue with this game.
I clicked a bunch of things and the game just pauses for a second, except when I clicked electron it animated and then was replaced by... something
Quarky & Quaysoo's Turbo Science!
Turbo Science is like regular Science, but FASTER
oh I see
is this Gizmos and Gadgets but by Sierra?
ending #2 is some very thin credits
ending #3 is reportedly the "true ending", at least on the European release. The Japanese version has 35 endings.
This one is... more serious? a little?
The other 32 endings are translated here, by
functionally all the japanese endings work like this. you get CONGRATULATIONS and then CATS says something to you.
usually something silly, or possibly the debug menu cheat code
I guess? I mean, it has no moving parts. but it requires preheating and involves movement of magnetic fields across a surface...
it's kinda like a traditional hard drive where you don't spin the disc, you just trick all the bits to migrate off the edge
who called it "bubble memory" and not "lemming bits"
(obligatory "lemmings don't throw themselves off cliffs, that's an urban legend")
(obligatory "the idea that disney invented that urban legend it itself an urban legend, they just helped popularize it")
wow, I think I just rolled a critical failure on my image capture.
I told my script to take a picture of Oblivion and instead got a badly cropped screenshot of Heroes of Might & Magic III, a game I don't even have installed
the endless questions of trying to capture fonts from modern 3D games:
1. what's the native resolution?
2. IS there a native resolution?
it looks cleaner at 1024x768 (earlier one was 640x480)
but not perfect.
nope. I think it's 1024x768, for a simple reason:
this splash screen! it doesn't scale based on resolution, and it seems to be sized the same as 1024x768

I get asked for writing tips a lot. Of all the ones I’ve given, here are a few of the ones that seem to hold true and remain somewhat universal or at least mostly unobjectionable:
1. If you are a fast writer (i.e., if you compose first drafts very quickly) then you absolutely must become a slow editor. Much of what I call “writing” is really, for me, editing.
2. If you don’t read you cannot write a lot or well. Sure, maybe you can read like a maniac for a decade and then read less after that, but without some large volume of intake, there will never be a meaningful output.
2.1 I sometimes say that I feel like writing without reading is like trying to run a marathan on a cracker. And sadly I see many students struggling to write when they have simply never read enough to fuel that demand of the task at hand.
3. All writing is writing if one decides to treat it that way. If one takes some degree of intentional will when sending emails, posting on social media and writing notes and marginalia, then all of that can count as meaningful daily writing.
1/ Mindset: Someone from NYC won't think about it twice before taking a 6h flight to the Valley for business. Why do Europeans perceive a 2-hour flight / train ride as such a big deal? Travel more, there's plenty of opportunities around the corner you know nothing about ✈️
2/ If you spent more than a month considering whether to expand abroad or not, just try. What’s the worst that can happen? You can always do a big international launch, fail, try again and communicate it as a big thing every time - no one will care / remember the previous time :)
3/ Europeans perceive int'l expansion as a massive cost and therefore spend 1/10th of what US startups spend on it every year. Invest more, but keep a startup mentality: launch from home first, assess the market & then save costs as you go in, e.g. stay at a friend's; not a hotel
4/ Whilst not excessively risky / costly, expanding internationally is HARD. It's like starting up all over again, finding Product Market Fit all over again & building your team all over again. PMF will have to be your #1 priority, and an indicator of whether to keep going or not
Mostly will work on Monday to Wednesday. Sometimes on Friday.
Why to pay your money to learn this if u can get it here.
U need only practice.
Say bank nifty future is at 32000.
Sell both 32000 call and put.
Considering current volatile market lest say premium on Monday morning is 350 on both sides.
Sold with 700 points combine premium.
If bank nifty will trade in narrow range say +\- 100 hold it.
If moving 200 points
then exit previous sold straddle. Sell new one. Let’s say BN moved +200
Now sell 32200. If bank nifty will move here within range then u will get profit through theta decay. Follow same procedure for next 150-200 pts move.
This is only for single straddle sell position.
Now in second case sell three straddle. 31900/32000/32100
In case of 100 points move no need to change.
If 200 + then future is 32200.
Exit 31900 and sell 31200 straddle.
If moving another 100 then exit 32000 and sell 32300. Continue same with 100 points move.
If no move then
it will consolidate between 32000-32200 or 32100 to 32300 and u will get theta decay.
This is for normal move. Sudden big move may come anytime. So keep SL in system.
If u r selling at 350-350 then keep SL in system 475 for both legs.
Practice it. No need to attend webinar.
In general, we say Saraswathi kataksham and that completely resonates with her as she had been bestowed with Mata Saraswathi’s Kripa kataksham' (grace) that even a fool can become a scholar.
If one talks about devotional songs MS is good. And for the service she has done towards it is commendable and she has been conferred with Bharat Ratna for that.
MS is a tape recorder - can sing a song without deviation for n number of times. Voice is a gift from God. Creativity is developed by an individual.
Carnatic music per se is different from devotional hymns and I would definitely vouch for MS for her devotional hymns, and I stand with my views and as we have something Loka bhinna ruchihi which goes by People have different tastes.
Each month has a unique theme and special festivities. Puratassi, in comparison to the other months, is the one that demands more attention. This month, according to folklore, a significant cosmic event occurs
Today, the Sun, the king of the planets, enters Kanya Rasi, & this month is known as Kanya Masam, or Puratassi (Purushottam Month) per the Tamil calendar because the entire month is dedicated to worshipping Shri Hari, who is manifested as Venkateshwara Swamy or Balaji of Tirupati
Purattasi Saturdays, Maavilakku, Mahalaya Amavasya, and Durga Navarathri are all prominent festivals throughout this month. Lord Venkatajalapathy is said to have arrived on Earth this month. At Tirupathi Hills, special prayers are offered.
Saturdays are said to be highly auspicious. Lord Venkatachalapathy is worshipped with fasting on Saturdays throughout the month of Purattasi, as it is the lord's favorite day.
At the top of the hills of Kottaimalai, near Vellore, is a Vishnu temple called Padavedu Kottaimalai Sri Venugopalaswamy temple, which is only open on Saturdays from 9 AM to 4 PM.

We thought Wake of Vultures would land with a splash back in 2015. I went to SIBA, I went to sales conference and spoke w Mario Batali. The book did ok, but not great, was never in Target or the airport, despite amazing reviews. Why? NO IDEA. No one knows! Because publishing. 2/
When you're a new writer, you think that if you just write a great book and do everything you're told to, the book will find its wings and soar. You tick all the checkboxes and wait for the world to love your book. Sometimes, even w publisher support, it just doesn't happen. 3/
As usual, this real talk isn't meant to be a downer. It's meant to let you know that THIS IS NORMAL. Your book can get 3 starred reviews and a blurb from Pat Rothfuss and still not hit list or even gain a steady following. That doesn't make it any less great. 4/
I always say that publishing success = skill + time on task + publisher marketing + luck. And there is NOTHING you can do to up that element of luck. Timing, groundswell, one of the Obama kids reading your book on film. That's out of your hands. So you work on the next book. 5/
Imagine, for a moment, the reaction of the UK Government, Brexiters, and the RW UK press if Juncker, Tusk, Macron or Merkel went on TV to say that Brexit was worth it to stop Freedom of Movement for UK citizens, and to stop Brits being able to come to the EU and jump the queue.— Steve Bullock (@GuitarMoog) November 20, 2018

A recent video of Shoaid Akhter surfaced in social media creating a lot of controversy where the #Pakistani Cricketer can be seen suggesting invasion of India by using the term Ghazwa-e-Hind.
Radicalization of sportsmen seen off late
Some radical Islamic preachers believes that Ghazwa-e-Hind means a “Holy War against India”. As per this irrational & profane concept, there will be a fierce battle to secure victory over #India.
#Pakistan-based terror groups, like JeM have been using Ghazwa-e-Hind as a Hadith to recruit, fund and justify its terror strikes as a religious holy war against #India.
Some machiavellian people claim it is a prophecy that Muslim warriors will wage war against the #India.
Jaish & others falsely propagate that Jihad against India is considered holy in Islam & that those participating in it will be granted an easy entry into paradise.
However prolific scholars says that this is a made-up interpretation of some verse in The Holy Quran to mislead the gullible youth of #Pakistan into picking up arms and fighting its Army's personal battle against #India.
Located in Southern Bangalore, this is one of the most popular places of worship in Bangalore City.
Devoted to Devi Banashankari, this shrine is visited specially during Rahukala which is believed to be an unfavorable time.
Somanna Shetty, a great devotee of Devi, brought this murti from Badami’s Banshankari Amma Kshetram.
It is said that many years ago, three ladies visited this shrine and requested the pujari to conduct puja for them. Since it was the inauspicious rahu kaal, the pujari refused.
However, upon their insistence, he conducted the puja. When he returned with prasadam, the ladies vanished. This made the people believe that they were none other than the Devi herself. Since then, the people perform poojas here during the Rahukaal.
People use lemons as a diya. Lemons are cut from the centre and their pulps are removed, for pouring oil in them.
It is strongly believed that Devi removes all the troubles from the life of her devotees during the Rahukala although it is considered inauspicious for any pooja.
At first, I resisted believing this because it is illogical and dumb and frankly, doesn't reflect well on the human race of which I am a member (and thus have long been hopeful that it is more of a distinction than it actually turns out to be.)
But if you actually are interested in facts you begin to notice how little most people care for them. Sometimes it is because they are heard to learn and bullshit is so much more widely and easily available. Sometimes it is because facts make them uncomfortable about themselves.
Sometimes it is because just one tiny fact will upset a whole worldview that has grown as comfortable as an overstuffed chair. (Settling into such worldviews is a lot like settling into chairs like that because the longer you're there and the deeper you sink...
...the harder it is to hoist yourself up and out of your fat-assed intellectual laziness.) But I actually think the reason people have such an appetite for bullshit goes deeper, goes to an aspect of ourselves we just can't accept.
