Overnight Open Thread (5 Nov 2016)

Don't forget to set your clocks back one hour tonight.

Coexist

I bet this Princeton Librarian has a coexist sticker on her car. She thinks it is her job to silence those skeptical of microaggressions. I don't think she understands what coexist means.

Aviation Tech

Check out the flexfoil morphing wing.

Bacon

Flux Capacitor

Heh. It was on this date in 1955 that Dr. Emmett Lathrop Brown invented the Flux Capacitor.

Sammich

How the sammich came to be. Now if someone would kindly make me one.

44 Magnum vs Gel Block

Yahoo Passwords

Based on the leaked Yahoo password database, too many folks are still using easy passwords.

Logic

The simple logical puzzle that shows how illogical we are.

Disney Stock

Good. Disney's stock dips following ESPN's big subscription loss.

WW II Quiz

Take the War History Online World War II quiz. The quiz is harder than you think.

Cat Video

Bonus cat video: Ozzy Man commentates on Tunnel Cat vs Land Cat.

5 I think the problem with passwords is that we use them for far too many things.

When you require someone to go up with some text that satisfies all sorts of stupid and random rules on dozens or hundreds of sites (where you might create an account to ask one question or make one post) people are going to make simple ones.

I'd rather see sites move to something like what we have here where you don't need a password....

12 Well, we made it through another season of not having set back our clocks, in the cars, on the mantle, or on the microwave ovens. Computers and cells of course reset automatically, and will do so again tonight... we use them to coordinate with "government" (vs real) time, when we have to.

As Milady said last night, imagine the man- person-hours involved in all the people in the DST states who, twice a year, run around resetting the time? All so the Power can be proven to not lie with the People! (Pumps freedom-rebel fist in air.)

24 I find it mighty hard to believe sammiches didn't exist before that Earl ate one in 1762.

Nobody thought of putting meat between two pieces of bread before that? With meat and bread being around for thousands of years?

More likely he was the first 'Noble' to get away with doing something in polite company which was frowned upon as something only the lower classes and peasants did.

50 The best passphrases would be a random string of characters, from as large a base alphabet as possible. The trouble is you can't possibly remember it. So you can write it down -- which is a big weaknesses.

The best thing otherwise is a passphrase, but with odd spelling, via some scheme you can remember. For example, you come up with some phrase you'll remember like

Hope'sGapingBungHole.

And you do something like this:

McCain took the position Kevin Bacon assumed in "Animal House". Romney took his seat in the reclining position, promising his voters not to sweat it because ORCA would win all the states plus some planets not even discovered yet.

You can go to bed an hour later. I just shift the clocks back sometime around right now, and get used to it being an hour earlier.

117 Easy password for the user, tough for the hacker.

If at work, pick up whatever telephone or other semi-permanent electric device may reside on your desk.

It should have a UL number, a U.S. Patent number(s), and/or a manufacturer's Product Number.

Pick the one you like, and use it for a password.

You won't have to worry about some snoop finding your password on a post-it note, and who the hell thinks of those objects on your desk, anyway? And if so, which number, which item?

You want to spice it up? Put your initials or other data you'll remember, either before or after those desk-object numbers. Never make a note of that or write it down, either.

Long as they don't change out your phone or electric pencil sharpener, desk radio or whatever, you're good to go.

At home? Same thing. Just use some numbers off the back of a TV remote or such.

122 The idiots are narrowing the Standard Time window, now. It's only Nov - Mar. It's only about 4 months.

There's no actual energy savings from studies of it. It seems to be a wash now. IIRC, the Germans started doing it 100 years ago or better, and it did save gas for gas lighting.

Our betters here decided to adopt it. But with modern energy usage patterns, there isn't any significant energy savings. I think it works out that some areas might use less, but others use more and it's a wash.

So - unfinished and stews always taste better the next day anyway.

And yet, when I took a quarter of a cup full of it to try it, I took another and then another - and then I had to stop myself, because it's so damned good right now, I could eat a huge bowl of it. This is going to be seriously awesome tomorrow.

I had to look it up. 1) It was a mortar, not a gun and 2) it was neither designed for nor used during combat (though consideration was given to using a modified version in an invasion of the Japanese Home Islands). It was a device used at Aberdeen Proving Grounds to test aerial bombs.

286 Speaking of Michael Moore.

Your humble Postal Match organizer and commenter, found himself quoted by no less than Uncle Remus at the Woodpile Report.

I'd originally posted the comment at Gerard Van Der Leun's "American Digest". Gerard recognized the Woodpile Repot quote, here at this link: http://tinyurl.com/h42cwss

Gotta do it that way, 'cause Woodpile Report doesn't isolate URLs to specific entries.

The Woodpile spotlighted a few key passages from my longer comment on this American Digest post on the Michael Moore statement.

I'm nearly as pleased as if I'd been quoted by the Ewok his own furry self.

304 There's not much point to body armor when everyone's weapons tend to vaporize you. There's not much to pack when replicators are ubiquitous.

And if you need to go hand to hand, you should have sent Klingons anyway.


Except that we see phasers routinely don't vaporize targets. Vaporization only happens on the highest output. And a couple of crew-served weapons and a light mortar would have slaughtered the Jem-Hadar. We've never seen a portable replicator used anywhere, so why assume that they have it? More likely the Federation are just idiots who got thousands of their own people slaughtered needlessly.

If you're in the Federation you're code pretty much requires you to start on stun and work your way through the settings until something works. Which, okay, yes it's stupid.

Didn't the Jem-Hadar have individual cloaking devices? I'm not sure what good a mortar does against an enemy you literally can't locate until he's on top of you.

I assume they have portable replicators because they used something similar on the mines they used to block the wormhole (cloaked and self-replicating, conservation of energy and matter be damned). Granted it's a standard Star Trek problem of tech does what the writers want when they want it and not other times (beaming through shields is another example)

I just realized this. By changing the time at 2AM both at the start and end of DST, you lose the 2-3AM hour once each cycle and get an extra 1 - 2AM hour.

To do it right, you should do the fall back at 3AM. You would thus get and extra 2-3AM hour which would make up for the lost 2 - 3AM before.

By doing it both at 2AM, you never gain the lost 2-3AM hour.

366 If you're in the Federation you're code pretty much requires you to start on stun and work your way through the settings until something works. Which, okay, yes it's stupid.

A clip from the battle. Even in the heat of battle they weren't disintegrating the enemy.

https://youtu.be/bIZ3EuvTXFc

Didn't the Jem-Hadar have individual cloaking devices? I'm not sure what good a mortar does against an enemy you literally can't locate until he's on top of you.

They knew that the enemy had an encampment. They knew the route the enemy was taking to attack them. Those are two good targets for a mortar. Once the Jem-Hadar start to decloak to attack, you can start firing at their positions or the chokepoint that they're going through.

I assume they have portable replicators because they used something similar on the mines they used to block the wormhole (cloaked and self-replicating, conservation of energy and matter be damned). Granted it's a standard Star Trek problem of tech does what the writers want when they want it and not other times (beaming through shields is another example)
Posted by: Methos at November 06, 2016 12:06 AM (3Liv/)


Starship technology rigged up on the fly doesn't mean that they have it Federation-wide. And I always assumed that the mines had someway of slowly replenishing the raw material required for replication, which means that over time a few mines would rebuild the entire minefield.

Of course, why the Dominion didn't simply fly ships, or even unmanned vessels, through until the minefield was exhausted is another question.

Posted by: Blanco Basura at November 06, 2016 12:16 AM (IcT7t
Er, they don't that I know of so maybe they can't? In theory the replicator is like a transporter but a ship has storage of any elements it might need that the replicator takes and assembles into whatever thing you're looking for.
Which kind of makes the cloaking self replicating space mines make not a lick of sense.
But maybe there's something about gold-pressed latinum that prevents replicators from assembling it efficiently?

Posted by: Methos at November 06, 2016 12:23 AM (3Liv/)

393 I had to look up the "canon" on Star Trek replicators. I thought it was supposed to use warp core power to supply energy to be converted into mass. It does the conversion, but canon says it starts out with bulk matter, turns into energy, then back again into particles, which are arranged into the needed atoms to make the molecules of whatever is desired.

It can't replicate things with too much "quantum complexity" (techno babble). Transporters, however can transport these highly complex things.

The idea is the transporter just takes a raw object and moves it, but the replicator has to assemble something based on stored memory of the pattern.

They say living things, "latinum" and something else are "too complex" to replicate.

400 Chiming in late on the SF TV comments -

Eureka was not only a good show consistently through its entire run, but had one of the best final episodes of any series I've ever seen. A real salute to the show, its characters, and actors. The crossovers with Warehouse 13 were fun, too.

Sliders, someone mentioned, started out pretty good, and then season by season, then episode by episode, it got worse until it really stank and I think we gave up on it before the end. Especially replacing cast members one by one until none of the originals remained. I though only Brits did that.

401 A clip from the battle. Even in the heat of battle they weren't disintegrating the enemy.
---
Limited special effects budget?

Alternatively, the phasors had limited energy so you'd use the lowest effective setting when you're being overrun as...well I don't know how you recharge them.

Or, I seem to recall some aliens were so tough that even on maximum, a phasor wouldn't kill, much less vaporize them, but I don't recall is the Jem-Hadar were one of those.

===

I guess a mortar would be useful in that circumstance, but then the question becomes whether the Federation would ever use such a thing? If you need to blow the crap out of something, that's what photon torpedoes are for. If you're sending an away team, they're really supposed to be talking their way through most anything.

Or put another way, would a mortar be effective against the Borg? The only reason they built the Defiant was as a response to the Borg. They'd tangled with the Klingons over the years, but their exploration/family/cruise ship design doctrine had gotten them through all that.

==

I think replicators were small enough to work an a Runabout, but I guess they wouldn't work even if you could make one handheld unless it could grab material from your local environment.

I don't know why the Dominion was dissuaded from attacking the minefield and they didn't have any issue with suiciding Jem-Hadar at other points.

Maybe there was some issue with explosions in proximity to the wormhole destabiling it? It's been a while since I saw those episodes.

And I can't believe I'm bothering to speculate and think about make believe technology. :-) I get amazed at the heated arguments people can get into over make believe fantasy.

The energy required for replicators would be enormous. If you're taking "bulk matter" and doing conversion and rearranging as it said, you have to handle something that could contain the mc^2 energy, which would be YUGE.

For example, the Sun, our ol' pal Sol is spewing about 4.25 million metric tonnes of mass via E/c^2.

Star Trek tech requires and energy source on the order of the solar output. That kind of energy must be contained and handled safely.

Down South (Galveston Island) is at present, hosting a motorcycle rally now said to rival Sturgis itself in total attendance. Makes sense, in that Galveston isn't a "beyond the wild horizon" ride for many, while Sturgis seems to be an epic journey to nearly all who attend.

The Lone Star Rally, in Galveston. They say the three day weekend will see over 400k bikes having rolled through the Island. I believe 'em.

Put your ear up to the USB port, and you can probably hear the sound of the ocean rumble of tens of thousands of HD's and screaming angry beez of the myriad sportbikes, even now.

But hey. Good eye candy abounds, both two wheeled n' two legged.

Makes for a good time to set a spell, bourbon and cigar to hand, and just watch n' smile.

And I dare say most of the crowd would be Morons or 'Ettes, were they to know about this world between worlds.

Oh, and sold about 400 rounds of .416 Barnes "X" and solid copper projectiles today. Had taken them in from an estate sale some years back, and finally found a gent who knew their worth, and paid it. Stuff was bought a decade ago for a .416 Rigby, but it'll be stuffed into freshly prepped cases for a .416 Barrett.

In other words, it went to a very good home.

So, I can afford an airline bottle of Val-U-Rite, at least once more.

Hope all is well in the Hillbilly Kingdom?

442 Terraforming Mars would be easy with that kind of energy, or at least making vast swaths habitable, so I'd probably go to Mars, declare it mine, mine, mine, and set up shop there. I'd be absolute fucking maximum potentate of Mars, and whatever the hell else I wanted.

I'd like to think I'd be benevolent. If you pissed me off, I'd just throw you out, but I imagine temptation would be too strong.

And there would be lots and lost of sex. I'd put Solomon to shame on the size of my harem.

448 Because as a viewer I'm relatively certain the pilot of TNG, as I don't remember them at all in TOS (or the animated series which I saw when I was little).

On TV I think Enterprise did something anachronistic with them (or had an alien race with them) but my memory's fuzzy there.

First Contact had a scene where they killed some Borg with tommy guns on the holodeck, with the safeties off, while they wer in Zefram Cochran's timeframe, so that's probably the earliest they were used in Trek chronology.

467 Food replicators in TOS, except for the episode "Tomorrow is Yesterday," were exclusively located in the common areas. Even Nurse Chapel had to bring the Plomeek soup to Spock who was forted up in his room with Pon Farr.

But to give a true WTF with the technology, in "Trouble With Tribbles" the Tribbles managed to get into the food replicators so when the door opened one got a tray with plates and Tribbles.

He taught me to ping to check my connection speed on DOS.Spoiled early on, I was. I never used a dialup modem - San Diego had Roadrunner back in 1998. I told Mr. Deplorable that I needed high speed internet if I was going to move here. I couldn't believe he was using dialup in 2006.Although I recall the days of putting the telephone receiver into those rubber connection cups - one of my friends from college used to bring his terminal with him when he would come up for a visit in the early 80s.

495 Weird to think that there are only 46 hours -- HOURS - left in this election.

What can possibly happen in 46 hours? Not much.

The trend lines are currently all going Trump's way. Their arc seems to be that he will peak on election day -- perfect timing.

It would take the November Surprise to end all November Surprises to reverse the trend lines. And I'm just not seeing it. Personally, I think it's too late. The Dems are just out of ammo. They would have launched their final salvo way back on Wednesday or Thursday if they had one. A final salvo on the Sunday before the election, with what will be at the time 36 hours or less to go? That;'s way too late -- and the Dem strategists of course know that.

In retrospect, I think they were banking on the sexual harassment charges and the "paid as little taxes as possible" speculation to sink him. THose WERE their October Surprises.

Imagine the Dems' shock when both attacks just fizzled.

Combination of sorta-clever-ish political bits, interrupted by some old, stale political-ish songs. It are what it am. Feel free to link, like, and spread the word... even if you don't like it. My vanity needs the hits.

And if you missed it, the previous episode's "Beast with Four Heads" cartoon, at about 10:45 in the vid, is an amusing shaggy Gothic horror story. (Copy link from nic, substitute 12 for 13 - it's a URL dexterity test.)

528 So here's what's going to happen when the site gets the time sorted. Let's say it happens tomorrow at 1 and the thread has 300 comments. So it happens at 1 and the site time reads 2. But once it happens the site time will read 1. Now will your next comment be 301? Nope. It will be like comment 105 or something in the middle of the thread where the posts that happened at the "site time" of 1 occurred. And all the new posts will just continue to be sorted into the thread based on the time.

Its funny, and confusing.

529 So I saw Hardcore Harry last night, and here are my thoughts.

The camera is a 1st person view of a mute person the entire time, so basically an action video game. It was inspired more by the game Half-Life than any movie. I would not have recommended this movie in the theaters for the amount of shaking, but neither would I recommend the worst offenders of the Bourne series. The small screen is better for this. Although they used Go-pros, the lighting did not suffer too much.

Most of the special effects occur on the set. The stunt work is superb, maybe comparable with John Wick. It is excessively violent throughout, but the tone is never dark.

The actor from District 9, Sharlto Copley plays several characters, as part of the sci-fi plot. He is very funny and watchable throughout.

Limited special effects budget?


I'm assuming that what we see is what actually happens. If you start saying, "Oh the special effects just don't show it" then any debate is pointless.

Alternatively, the phasors had limited energy so you'd use the lowest effective setting when you're being overrun as...well I don't know how you recharge them.

We're going far afield, but this kind of proves my point: why the hell, in the midst of a brutal war for survival, are they sending Starfleet personnel down with only these phasers?

Or, I seem to recall some aliens were so tough that even on maximum, a phasor wouldn't kill, much less vaporize them, but I don't recall is the Jem-Hadar were one of those.

If they're facing enemies that are too tough for their normal phasers, it would make sense to have heavier weaponry, would it not? Of course, the issue is less about the power of the weapons and more that they aren't mass casualty producing weapons that a crew-served machine gun would be.

I guess a mortar would be useful in that circumstance, but then the question becomes whether the Federation would ever use such a thing? If you need to blow the crap out of something, that's what photon torpedoes are for. If you're sending an away team, they're really supposed to be talking their way through most anything.

The Federation has fought, since TNG started, wars against the Cardassians, Klingons, and the Dominion. Not to mention Borg incursions. We've seen plenty of situations where heavier firepower would have benefitted the Federation. Hell, the Klingons had mortars when they were assaulting a Federation colony in DS9.

Or put another way, would a mortar be effective against the Borg? The only reason they built the Defiant was as a response to the Borg. They'd tangled with the Klingons over the years, but their exploration/family/cruise ship design doctrine had gotten them through all that.

I have a theory about the whole cruiseship design thing for another ONT. But remember that it's relatively new. Older Starfleet was basically warships, not luxury-liners. And while a mortar may not be useful against the Borg, it might be very useful for a variety of other combat situations that away teams could find themselves on. Or even ignoring mortars, you still have things like crew-served weapons which should be part of a security team's arsenal.


I think replicators were small enough to work an a Runabout, but I guess they wouldn't work even if you could make one handheld unless it could grab material from your local environment.


Yeah, but runabout replicators seem to be just for food and basic stuff. Survival for a few days or weeks for a small crew.

There's lawyers, it's their nature, in your area who will litigate your case [especially since you're female [force multiplier]...)...for a percentage of your settlement.
Call around and USE THE SYSTEM.....Make the fuckers pay. 9 outta 10 times, they'll settle......but at least you made em sweat and got (some) pay outta of the fuckedup situation.

Does that square the situation? Nope, but extractin something from these fucks, (using Their Systems at that)......is wayyyy BETTER than just taking it.
