Get Paid to Spy on the Mailman

Get Paid to Spy on the Mailman:

'via Blog this'
My grandma is what’s known as a “mail decoy”. Companies add her to their mailing list and she reports back to them whenever she receives mail from them. This information is invaluable as it allows companies to know that their mail is being properly delivered in a timely manner. She reports what day she received the mail and in what condition it came.
Hmm.
Companies also use “mail decoys” to ensure that their mailing list is never stolen. For example, let’s say an employee steals a mailing list and sends out an advertisement for their own business use. When my grandma reports that she received a piece of mail that the company has no record of sending, they will know there has been a possible theft.
Heh!

How I fixed my stuttering issue - Forums - Diablo III

How I fixed my stuttering issue - Forums - Diablo III:

'via Blog this'
Prelude:
I have a laptop that has far beyond the necessary specs needed to run this game, however I was getting terrible stuttering throughout it. My computer runs an AMD A8 series processor with a dedicated Radeon HD 7680 video card and 6 GB of ram. The issue is my HDD. It's a crappy "green" HDD that's supposed to keep the computer from using up excess amounts of power by slowing the rpm (5400 yuck). Because Diablo 3 doesn't utilize ram very well and instead reads the entire game off the hard drive, games took forever to load and even when they did, I had horrible performance. On max resolution and lowest possible settings, I would get between 11 and 30 fps. Now I get a constant 55-60 on max. 

How I did it:
It was a simple fix. I had a spare USB flash drive laying around so I reformatted it to NTFS and moved my D3 folder to it. That's it. I open the flash drive directory and run the D3 launcher. It starts about 6 seconds slower, but the performance gain is incredible. Plus, I have portable D3!
Note: You need at least 16 GB free on the flash drive.

Why it works:
Like I said before, D3 poorly utilizes the available ram on a computer and instead reads from your continuous moving HDD. The flash drive has no moving parts and is completely dependent on your read speed of the drive and device.

Another way to do this would to invest in a SSD, but that's a lot of money. This is a cheap, easy fix that allows portable Diablo and no need to work with Ramdisk.

What's For Dinner ?

What the heck happened to Stanley?

Obama goes to a school to talk to the kids and to get a little PR. After his talk he offers question time. One little boy puts up his hand and Obama asks him his name.

"Stanley," responds the boy.

"And what is your question, Stanley?"

"I have 4 questions: First, why did you go to bed the night of the Benghazi raid and only talk to your cabinet one time when you KNEW Americans' lives were on the line? Second, why are you President when we still have no clue where you were born? Third, what REALLY happened to all of the money you gave to green energy corporations that are now bankrupt? Fourth, if I don't do my homework I get punished ... why haven't you submitted a budget to Congress when the LAW says you were supposed to submit one by the first Monday in February?

Just then, the bell rings for recess. Obama informs the kiddies that they will continue after recess.

When they resume Obama says, "OK, now ... where were we? Oh, that 's right: question time. Who has a question?"

Another little boy puts up his hand. Obama points him out and asks him his name.

"Steve," he responds.

"And what is your question,Steve?"

"Actually, I have 6 questions. First, why did you go to bed the night of the Benghazi raid and only talk to your cabinet one time when you KNEW Americans lives were on the line? Second, why are you President when we still have no clue where you were born? Third, what REALLY happened to all of the money you gave to green energy corporations that are now bankrupt? Fourth, if I don't do my homework I get punished ... why haven't you submitted a budget to Congress when the LAW says you were supposed to submit one by the first Monday in February? Fifth, why did the recess bell go off 20 minutes early? And sixth, what the heck happened to Stanley?"

    • A quad course is available, but jump ramps haven’t been installed yet, so be cautious and creative when navigating the course!
    • While in the training area players have a separate set of loadouts for vehicles and classes. Normal loadouts are used when the player returns to one of the continents.
    • A Redeploy hotkey has been added and can be used without having to view the map. Default binding is the Delete key. If you find yourself stranded in VR, use the hotkey to get back to the training facility. This functionality is available both in and out of VR Training.
    • For training purposes, reality has been altered in this area:
    • All weapons for infantry and vehicles available to the player’s empire can be used!

Britney Gallivan having made the 11th fold
Britney Crystal Gallivan (born 1985) of Pomona, California, is best known for determining the maximum number of times that paper or other materials can be folded in half.

Contents

  [hide

[]Biography

In January 2002, while a junior in high school, Gallivan demonstrated that a single piece of toilet paper 4000 ft (1200 m) in length can be folded in half twelve times. This was contrary to the popular conception that the maximum number of times any piece of paper could be folded in half was seven. She calculated that, instead of folding in half every other direction, the least volume of paper to get 12 folds would be to fold in the same direction, using a very long sheet of paper. A special kind of $85-per-roll toilet paper in a set of six met her length requirement. Not only did she provide the empirical proof, but she also derived an equation that yielded the width of paper or length of paper necessary to fold a piece of paper of thickness t any n number of times.
She was a keynote speaker at the September 22, 2006 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics convention.
In 2007, Gallivan graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in Environmental Science from the College of Natural Resources.

[]Paper folding theorem

An upper bound and a close approximation of the actual paper width needed for alternate-direction folding is

W = \pi t 2^{(3/2)\left(n-1\right)}.
For single-direction folding (using a long strip of paper), the exact required strip length L is

L = \frac{\pi t}{6}\left(2^{n}+4\right)\left(2^{n}-1\right),
where t represents the thickness of the material to be folded, W is the width of a square piece of paper, L is the length of a paper piece to be folded in only one direction and n represents the number of folds desired.
These equations show that, in order to fold anything in half, it must be \pi times longer than its thickness, and that, depending on how something is folded, the amount its length decreases with each fold differs.

[]In popular culture

Gallivan's story was mentioned in the episode Identity Crisis[1] of Numb3rs, She served as a consultant and was mentioned in an episode of MythBusters[2] on the Discovery Channel in 2007, and in episode 3 of QI's "F" series.
