❝ large areas of the Antarctic ice sheet sit on rock that's below sea level. Were the ocean to reach these sheets, the ice would break up and float off while melting, a process that could raise sea levels relatively suddenly. Now, researchers have performed a catalog of all of the ice that empties into the ocean in Antarctica, allowing us to identify those that pose the largest threat of rapid sea-level rise. ❞

I always wondered why people sharing screens with WebEx always asked “Can you see my screen now?”

Now I know. Even the free conference systems I use implement sharing by giving you a thumbnail of what you are going to share, and then showing you what you are sharing.

Not WebEx.

As soon as you share something (by name, not by thumbnail). All context goes away. At the top it says “Sharing Keynote” or whatever, but does it show you what you’re sharing? Nope. Gone.

Great, you’re sharing Keynote? But what window? The front one? Yes. Is it displaying it even though it’s not on my main monitor? Nope, as it turns out. It wouldn’t display until I dragged the window onto my main monitor.

What a crock. I can’t believe a paid product has such a poor interface for it’s core functionality. Give me Join.Me, or BlueJeans, or Zoom, or Appear.in, oranything else.... more »

The poor were relocated to barracks-style housing west of Ninth Street that lacked any neighborhood appeal and shunned the variety of uses that made cities tick. In case after case, in city after city, these policies of relocation have failed the public good.

What were these civic leaders thinking from the 1950s thru early 1970s? "Urban renewal" never achieved anything remotely close to its lofty goals. Instead it led to vacant lots, lower property values, and lesser living standards.

Great minds think alike. But it’s annoying when it’s your own.

I wanted to see how long my computer had been idle. And I found something that gave a hint on getting a bunch of system stats. So I wrote a shell pipeline to process it.

ioreg -n IOPower -l | grep HIDIdleTime | tail -1 | sed -e 's,.* ,,' -e 's,$, / 1000000000,' | bc

Great. Now I figure I’ll just put it in a script in ~/bin/ and call it idletime. So I vi ~/bin/idletime.

#!/bin/sh

ioreg -c IOHIDSystem | perl -ane 'if(/Idle/) {$idle=(pop @F)/1000000000;print $idle, "\n"; last;}'

Apparently I’ve been down this path before.

Modern technology has brought us many benefits, including mosquito traps that cost hundreds of dollars, but sometimes we overlook simple solutions to difficult challenges such as mosquito control. When it comes to controlling pests, research tends to focus on chemicals or concepts that can be patented. Unless someone can make a profit from an idea, the public may never become aware of it.

how to:
Because mosquitoes are attracted to the CO2 we breathe out, I started looking for ideas that used CO2 as the bait for the mosquito trap. I did think of dry ice but it does dissipate fairly quickly.

I found a cached link on Google here. It seems to be active again now. I've rewritten the instructions some and hopefully it will work as well.

Thanks to the students for their hard work on this project. I've used some of their photos for illustration.
Supplies:

1 2 liter soda bottle
a sharp knife
black paper
tape
candy thermometer

Take a 2 liter soda bottle. Cut off the top right below where it starts to narrow for the top, invert and place inside the lower half.

Make a simple sugar syrup.
Ingredients:

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 cups cool water
1 tsp. active dry yeast

Directions:

Bring 1 cup of the water to a boil.

Dissolve the sugar into the boiling water.

Once the sugar is dissolved completely, remove the pan from the heat. Stir in 2 cups cool water, stir well.

Check the temperature of the syrup to make sure it is no hotter than 90 degrees F, if hotter, let cool to 90 degrees F, add 1 tsp. active dry yeast, no need to mix. Put syrup in the bottom part of the bottle, using the cut off neck piece, leave in place.

Be sure to seal the two parts of the bottle with the tape. The fermenting yeast will release carbon dioxide. Put black paper around the bottle since mosquitoes like dark places and carbon dioxide. This mosquito trap will then start working.

TIPS: Put the trap in a dark and humid place for 2 weeks, you'll see the effect. You'll have to replace the sugar water + yeast solution every 2 weeks.

Rubio is a conservative, but fortunately the Three Laws of Robotics will keep him from harming us all. -- @SrWHOfficial

I only tuned in for about 20 minutes of the debate, but I caught the fourth time he gave that speech.

All I can think is that someone told him "To beat Cruz and Trump, you need to appeal to the conspiracy theorists," and he got carried away. It was just weird. He was asked a question. He said first he wanted to respond to someone. And his response had nothing to do with what they had said. When the moderator pointed that out, his excuse was, "Well, he mentioned Obama."

Maybe it's a post-hypnotic suggestion? Anytime someone says the word "Obama", he automatically gives his speech?

Vice does an indepth look at what led the CIA to spy on a senate investigation.

From the timeline, my guess is that someone misconfigured the search engine. It was supposed to have two access groups with one shared directory. But the CIA added a third group with their own documents. And their documents ended up in the search. That kind of after-the-spec-is-done tweaking often results in security issues, and this time it did as well. The CIA's analysis was available to the Senate team. And when the CIA's public response bore no relationship at all to their own internal review, they got caught with their pants down.

I'm investigating moving my email over to my (legacy) free Google Apps account. But I originally set it up with a secondary domain, not my usual email address. But I figure there must be a way to move it to a new domain.

Yes. You can do it it using the Google APIs. But not the web console.

Okay, so someone must have written this.

Of course they did. So I download a command line tool (Python) called GAM. Walk through an extremely long (but easy to follow) set of instructions on setting up my Google API account and giving it all the right API permissions. Get the whole thing installed. Run it. Run the command to change my primary domain...

Nope. You can only change to a validated secondary domain. My other domain is an alias, not a secondary domain. I can't make it a secondary domain because that's not an option on the legacy free accounts.

I think I have a solution. I can get a 30 day free trial for the business version, and I have the option of going back to the free version anytime in the 30 days (but not after). So if I turn on the trial, then I can add a secondary domain, swap the primary with it, and then go back to the free version.

That ought to work, right?

But I only get one chance to do it.

The things I'll do to avoid paying $40/month (5 * 8 folks on my family email server).

Of course, once I do all that, I still have the email alias problem. I use a custom email address for every site I sign up for. I used to use "+", but too many sites claimed it was an illegal character. So I switched to "-" and programmed my mail server to translate it as a "+". Here I'll need to use aliases for that, but Google only allows 30 aliases per account.

OTOH, I don't see any limits on the number of groups. So I could create a group for each one, and put only myself in the group. Is there really no limit to the number of groups? Anyone?

Or of course I could go update 20 years of websites with new email addresses. Ugh.

You can (until DMCA takedown) watch a SFW version of an XXX version of Batman. And it's not bad. Which probably says more about the original Batman than about porn movies, but whatever. :)

#t

This is... quite amazing, actually. Rule 34 means, of course, that this porn exists. But the really funny thing is that even after excising the naughty bits, it looks like a decent episode in its own right. This might be the first time I've seen a porn show with an actual plot... Now I kind of want to find the originals.

And oh yeah, there's legal and copyright questions over everything. I bet this made some law clerk's day to run across for a change.___You can (until DMCA takedown) watch a SFW version of an XXX version of Batman. And it's not bad.

❝ Argosy began in 1882 as a magazine for children and ceased publication ninety-six years later as soft-core porn for men, but for ten years in between it was the home of a true-crime column by Erle Stanley Gardner, the man who gave the world Perry Mason. In eighty-two novels, six films, and nearly three hundred television episodes, Mason, a criminal-defense lawyer, took on seemingly guilty clients and proved their innocence. In the magazine, Gardner, who had practiced law before turning to writing, attempted to do something similar—except that there his “clients” were real people, already convicted and behind bars. All of them met the same criteria: they were impoverished, they insisted that they were blameless, they were serving life sentences for serious crimes, and they had exhausted their legal options. Gardner called his column “The Court of Last Resort.” ❞
