Alex Grossman56,667G+ Engagers CircleIt's been a while since I shared a circle, so here's a small circle of people I recommend following. They are great to engage with, full of energy and opinions and fun, with very little anger, disrespect, or poor manners. Hope you enjoy all of them as much as I do. They certainly make my time in G+ lots of fun. :)2013-08-22 03:31:187510711CC G+
Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615CC G+

Dede King0The Fundie CircleIt's round. I've hand picked the ones I interact with not because they're relevant to me or because of what they post, but because I could pick them out of a line-up, state their name and at least one fact about them and they're generally wonderful people to know. The top 10 I'd probably bail out of jail and take a bullet for, but that's neither here nor there. One thing none of them can be accused of, is being soporific. As a disclaimer: Circle with caution or stalk quietly as the circle is filled with every type of G+ user that might not appeal to all tastes including:1. Photo fundies2. Meme fundies3. Gif fundies4. News link reshare fundies5. Art fundies6. Science fundies7. Music fundies8. Narcissistic fundies9. Selfie shot fundies10. Food fundies11. Passive-aggressive one liner vague posting fundies12. Contrarian fundies (not trolls, just opinionated)13. Long form post fundies14. Leg humper fundies15. Lastly, the G+ fundies (they know everything about G+ and will tell you how to Internet)16. High Voltage Noms (+A.V. Flox)17. Low Voltage Noms (+Jake Kern)18. Cat fundies (+Bobbi Jo Woods)19. Sine Wave Noms (+fan tai)It's not really a circle meant to be shared, just my way of saying hey to all of you that make this place worth while <3 No hard feelings if I forgot anyone, it happens. Have a wonderful day.2013-04-17 15:28:3834742831130CC G+

Marc Jansen29,662A circle of the people, by the people, and for the people (of my circles)Earlier today, I asked people to pick a number from 1-300 with the intent of coming back later and putting together a shared-circle that represented that input.After consolidating the data, I was left with 91 unique responses.  (Yes, I counted each and every number given to me, rounding where needed and substituting 1 for i, as it was as close as I could get.)I then selected the top 300+ people from my circles based up on relevance, and then removed those whom I know dislike being part of shared circles and a few folks who've apparently gone MIA, back-filling as need to get me back to 300, and then started matching names according to Google's relevance ranking with the 91 numbers you folks provided to me.So, I now present to you:  _a random selection of 91 of the top-300 people in my circles, chosen by you, the people IN my circles._This circle is made up of people and pages from all walks of life, and all corners of the globe, but they all have one thing on common - I found them interesting enough to circle, and they tend to be folks that I interact with on a fairly regular basis.(If you don't see your name here, do not blame me, by the way, I was completely impartial throughout this entire selection process.)2012-12-04 21:06:379230217CC G+

Alex Grossman27,422Last time I shared a relevancy circle was back in July. From then until now (October 19), it's only changed by 7 people, and most but not all of that was near the end of the list. So, it's remarkably consistent.These 99 users are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself, so a total of 100). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is definitely more accurate now than last time. Does the algorithm get better over time due to more data? I still suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd still be curious and interested to learn more about it.Anyway, these people are relevant to me and truly help me enjoy my time sharing, talking, discussing, and hanging out on G+. So, thank you to all of you :)TGIF and have a great start to the weekend!P.S. - Typical inconsistent G+ - I could share the Movie Lovers Circle earlier today with about 130 people being notified. However, by mid-morning I couldn't notify the 99 people in this Circle. Now, I can again. But it appears that instead of setting a limit on the number of people in a circle, maybe they've set a limit on the number of people you could notify in a set period of time? Very strange. If anybody has any clue as to why this is, please let me know.2012-10-20 03:24:2710023124CC G+

Alex Grossman27,364It's TGIF so hope you have a great day. Here's a Circle I thought I'd share today for Follow Friday - Movie Lovers Circle. This Circle is by request only and filled with people who love to talk about movies, all kinds, all genres, languages, you name it - the point is to have fun and share. If you're interested in joining in to the discussions, engaging with others, sharing and exchanging comments, please let me know and I can try and add you to this Circle (notification limits permitting). If you're a member of this circle, you agree to participate in a respectful manner. Due to the changing and, at times uncertain, notification restrictions Google has in terms of number of people you can notify with a post I've split this up into two Circle.

Alex Grossman24,371My Top 99 circle - is Relevancy Accurate?These are the 99 users who are on top of my relevance list (plus me since I'm relevant to myself). I excluded Pages that were in there so as to only have people.Most of these folks are engaging with me through posts or comments (though some are clearly more by e-mail, such as a family member) and the Circle is surprisingly accurate until the last bit of it when some names appeared and others were left off. I suspect that as you go down you end up with a number of close calls in which the algorithm can go either way. If anybody has more details on the relevancy algorithm, I'd be curious to continue the discussions I've seen on other similar threads this week.Want to create your own? (instructions borrowed/stolen from +Max Huijgen )► Click circles on the tab on the right► Make sure relevance is selected (default)► Select the top 99 users.

A robotic galaxy mapper may have just made its first discovery – by surviving an unexpected onslaught of space debris. Scientists working with the European Space Agency's Gaia satellite have found that the spacecraft is being peppered by far more micrometeoroids – tiny specks of space dust – than had been anticipated.

he strikes shouldn't put Gaia in danger, although mission scientists will have to watch closely as the spacecraft begins its scientific observations. Launched in December 2013, Gaia's mission is to map roughly a billion stars in our galaxyMovie Camera with high precision. Learn more here: http://buff.ly/1o2BU4E

The new hotness.  Private V2 3-metal clone, Russian 91% clone with quartz glass kayfun nano conversion kit (and the Innokin U-can in the background).  Really loving this mod.  Smooth switch, great hand feel.  I really need some 18350 batteries for it because it is SO swag when it's scoped all the way down.  Compact and cool.

Ike & Tina Turner - Bold Soul Sister from The Hunter on Blue Thumb, 1969/70.  I love this track for two reasons:  Tina's completely uninhibited performance, dripping with shrieking screaming blues and aggressive, confident sexuality and the massive, pounding back-beat, all on the one driving, numbing funk of the rhythm section.

#gaming   #linux   #civilization5  

For +Luis Roca and anybody else who wants to know how to install Civilization V mods in Linux since Steam Workshop isn't supported (yet, I hope):

1.  Enable the MODS item in the menu:
Assuming that your steam install lives in the default location of ~/.local/share/Steam which we'll now call $STEAM because lazy
open the following file in an editor of your choice (but not emacs)
$STEAM/SteamApps/Sid Meier's Civilization V/steamassets/assets/ui/frontend/mainmenu.lua

Look for a line that looks like:
Controls.ModsButton:SetHide( true );

Now comment out that line by adding a double hyphen in front of it.
Save mainmenu.lua.

2. Give them a place to live
Look in ~/.local/share/Aspyr/Sid Meier's Civilization 5 (see what they did there?  Aspyr uses the Arabic numeral)

The Non-Engineer’s Guide To Simple Very Complex Circuits
Special Regulated Mod Edition

So, there was a smallish kerfuffle the other day about Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and what it does, what it means, etc.  I thought I’d take a moment and talk a bit about it, hopefully without descending into Calculus (because, honestly, if we’re going to get into Calculus, I’m going to need to call my wife as I am abysmal at it).

So before I vaguely defend my choice not to do the math, let’s talk about what PWM actually is and why it’s used.  A purely mechanical mod represents the simplest of circuits.  A battery, a switch, and a source of resistance (the coil).  You close the switch and current flows from the positive terminal of the battery, through the resistor, to the negative terminal of the battery.  That’s what we call directcurrent.  The ... more »

As much as the PC tank section felt cheap, not being able to see how much juice is in the tank is a huge pain in the butt.  Does anyone know if they make a pyrex tank section to fit the Kayfun/Russian 91%?

The Non-Chemist’s Guide to Vaporizing E-Juice Safely

Part 5: What The Heck Does All of This Mean?

I’m glad you asked.  The problem with everything we’ve discussed thus far is that it doesn’t answer what your question probably was, to wit, “What voltage or wattage should I vape at?”  There’s a reason that Ohm’s Law and Joule’s First Law don’t answer this question:  there is no right answer.  The formulae we’ve discussed previously can give you precise answers as to how much power or current you’ll be getting from a particular voltage and resistance.  They can’t tell you how that’s going to work out for your particular atomizer or juice or preferences.  A lot of that’s subjective and entirely up to the individual. With that in mind, here are a few things that do, generally, hold true:

Part 4: You’ve Got the Power

So, we have a pretty good idea of what electrical potential, current, and resistance are.  These three factors determine the power output of a vaping circuit.  Power’s probably the hardest of these concepts to grasp for the average person so I’m going to ask you to bear with me, because I may have to resort to mathematics and even a tiny, tiny bit of algebra in explaining this one.  Please don’t throw things at me.

The universe or such bits of it as we have observed appears to obey certain laws.  Possibly the most important of them is the Law of Conservation of Mass/Energy which states that matter and energy are neither created nor destroyed.  In other words, the total amount of mass/energy that you start with at the beginning of an event and the total amount ofmass/energy ... more »

The Non-Engineer’s Guide to Simple Circuits

This is the third in a series of posts attempting to explain the basics of electricity and simple circuits as it applies specifically to vaping.  Disclaimers:  I am not an electrical engineer.  I am an electronics hobbyist and I used to teach math to high school students. There is a distinct chance that I will make mistakes.  Please be kind about them.  I'll be happy to fix them.

Part 3: Resistor?  I Never Even Met Her!

Picture, if you will, an empty gymnasium.  On the floor in a regular grid pattern spaced about 3 feet apart are painted “X” marks in various colors.  If we find a lot of otherwise unoccupied people and get them to stand on the X marks, they’ll be close enough to hold hands conveniently or communicate with one another.  Now imagine that at either end of the gymnasium, there aredoors.  If I sta... more »

So the whole water analogy worked pretty well for explaining electrical potential and voltage.  We’ll probably go back to water eventually, but for now, I want to talk about falling pianos.  Electrical potential is present whether or not there’s a completed circuit.  When we talk about a battery being charged, what we mean is that the battery has had energyapplied to it ... more »

Part 1: Under Pressure
Probably the most useful analogy for talking about the weird things electrons do and the weird ways in which the do it is also the most common:  *water*.  Water flowing through a pipe actually behaves in a way that is a lot like direct current electricity (don't worry about what direct current means yet...we'll get there).

And now, my second shot at twisted kanthal build on my Patriot clone.  2 strands 30 AWG kanthal a1, 9/10 wrap on a 3/32" drill bit.  No idea what the resistance is but it's definitely <1.2 Ohm as the kick flatly refuses to fire it.  Update:  Multimeter reads 1.0 Ohm which is kind of shocking since that's actually what I was shooting for.

The Enemy of My Enemy

✇ Nearly 125 years ago, a British bacteriologist observed that the holy waters of the Ganges and Yamuna had curious bactericidal properties, limiting the spread of cholera. It took another 20 years before two microbiologists independently proposed the existence of viruses. Observing small clearings on a lawn of dysentery-causing bacillus on an agar plate, d'Herelle coined the term bacteriophage for the virus that devours bacteria; now affectionately abbreviated to "phage".  

A Voracious Appetite: Found everywhere bacteria exist- in the soil, deep inside the earth's crust, within the bodies of animals and plants, and densely packed in the oceans, there are an estimated 1×10^8 different types of phages, each infecting only a specific type of bacteria.  Almost comical in appearance, a phagehas it... more »
