Re: Green science

Thank you, Peter. Very succinct and with a tone that puts things both in human perspective and you give good pointers for anyone that wants to dig in on the aspects of the hard science data points and timelines you bring up. Your input and presence is appreciated anytime.

Germany is in the process of outlawing Facebook's entire business model. That should be fun.

Re: Green science

Thanks Valis. I'm not much of a politics guy, science is hard enough. The politicization is weird and simplistic which is alternately dismaying and entertaining to me. I'm just bright enough to hang out with very smart people, and a number of them are working on projects or studies of things that a...

Re: Green science

I guess its nothing shocking but I am pretty convinced we do make alterations to the climate with extensive CO2 emissions. I am not saying there are no other factors to climate change than this (of course there is), but i think it is a factor. I am not saying Ms Ocasio is right in her prediction, b...

Sounds like you had the 32bit XP subsystem installed in Win7 on that machine, and it survived the upgrade.

Re: Green science

Btw, when we hear meaningless assertions like “Climate change is real,” or “The science is settled” I have this knee-jerk response always come to my mind, “fine, then we should cancel all funding for climate research.” This is not so much a retort to you Peter as it is my reaction to the politicizat...

Re: ScopeRise Downsizing.

It means anything you want. Instead of needing google drive, I would put the files on my server. We can link to them anywhere you want. From your ScopeRise site, from a forum post, from the frontend of the site (if that's ever necessary)....the upshot is people downloading would never know the diffe...

Re: Sounddiver

Sounddiver won't see the midi i/o even if you do get the parts that break to work. There's just too much legacy code in there imho, not only is it a 32bit program that can only talk to 32bit capable drivers, but it's also a GDI+ app and WIn7's GDI+ fallback path (This is XP's GUI code) is no longer ...

Re: Security & Privacy with technology in 2018 and beyond

Facebook uses its apps to track users it thinks could threaten employees and offices In early 2018, a Facebook user made a public threat on the social network against one of the company's offices in Europe. Facebook picked up the threat, pulled the user's data and determined he was in the same coun...
