So I got some random curry-related things, including 3 different bottles of masala. None were what I was hoping to find (an oily but otherwise dry masala) since they're all quite wet. This is what I get for being too lazy to whip up my own.
Despite this, it's good to have a variety of spicy things, to which end I've also gotten some thai chili sauce (I'd have gotten the chilis themselves but I couldn't find any) cayenne powder, etc. So given rice/noodles and meat, I can do just about anything I want to them.
I want to like Wired and I enjoy it when I can, but then you go and say stuff like this.
Agreed, your model is wrong. Unfortunately, it's not useful either. Abandoning it will increase your chances for success, but you should not have generalized that particular logic to the whole realm of models simply on the grounds that you can't come up with an applicable idea in the first place.
The tone here might seem a bit over-invested. It`s intentional.
So I started programming for the Nintendo DS. I can happily say that, while perhaps most of the time my code hasn't done what I'd expected, only 3 times out of hundreds has the code actually crashed, locked up or otherwise failed to run.
Also, something about perl failing at bitwise operations for those who are into that sort of thing.
It's an FPS, which is a style I don't have much love for, with a few exceptions. However, a game that periodically distracts me from the action by making some beautiful things happen has to have some merit.
This is a Western FPS with some real style points. It's all in the details.
In a recent diary, I'd mentioned that I'd acquired an early sense of optimism about the world because of a sense of progress that I'd been exposed to while growing up in the '80s. Metatone had questioned this, and I responded without really providing any specifics.
For a few days I wondered what they might be, because they certainly weren't available to me at the time. Worse, the more I thought about the history of the time, society on the global scale had established a steady downhill pace, and I wondered where this sense could possibly have come from, had I wholly misunderstood the global environment at the time?
The truth is, the cold war was wrapping itself up in the eighties. I didn't fully understand why it was put up, but when the Berlin Wall was being dismantled I did fully understand what it meant.
Or: why do mirrors reverse left and right, but not up and down?
Valence is a term commonly used in chemistry, roughly describing the amount of promiscuity in its electrons. These form bonds and so on. But is has some common place usage (ambivalent) and math/logic (equivalent.)
The truth is there is no deep seed of (formal) logic that is inherent to anything, and we're just using metaphors -- the way we teach abstract things to kids1. Even math traces its fundamentals down to instructions for operating a pencil.
1: this is a good thing, afterall it's the foundation of our teaching and our understanding. If these didn't coincide, we'd obviously be wasting our time in schools.
For a while now I've had a Nintendo DS, with homebrew hardware.
After having owned a DS for about a year, I'll say with confidence: if you don't have one, get one.
After having the homebrew stuff for a few months, I'll say the same: if you have a DS (if not, see above) without homebrew: get an M3, R4DS or a SuperCardlite or something. It's worth it.
The DS is a wicked platform and the homebrew scene is very active (and imaginative.) Doubts? http://nintendo-ds.dcemu.co.uk/ (Scroll down while watching the for the left nav. section titled "Homebrew Games.")
