you have no idea how difficult it is to successfully renegotiate the terms of a timeless Platonic contract that doesn’t literally exist. No! I am Exception Nazi! NO EXCEPTION FOR YOU! Civilization didn’t conquer the world by forbidding you to murder your enemies unless they are actually unrighteous in which case go ahead and kill them all. Liberals didn’t give their lives in the battle against tyranny to end discrimination against all religions except Jansenism because seriously fuck Jansenists. Here we have built our Schelling fence and here we are defending it to the bitter end.

I know this isn’t what you wanted to hear, but knowing the recommended methods will shine through in the final product. Almost every developer who has done Gear VR development will immediately notice things like the gaze cursor being a set distance from the head instead of it being projected on the surface you’re looking at like it should be. Developers will appreciate the attention to detail and users will have no idea, but they won’t be sick and won’t have headaches or eyestrain. The last thing you want is a user to leave your experience with simulator sickness. So let these documents guide your development process and if you decide to stray away from the path set before you by Oculus, make sure you understand why it’s not recommended to do it that way and try to minimize any negative effects.

Such prisoners would mistake appearance for reality. They would think the things they see on the wall (the shadows) were real; they would know nothing of the real causes of the shadows.

the main reason for the enthusiasm of the Zcash tech is, indeed, Equihash’s resistance to ASIC mining. “Equihash is a memory-oriented Proof-of-Work, which means how much mining you can do is mostly determined by how much RAM you have,” said Wilcox and Grigg. “We think it is unlikely that anyone will be able to build cost-effective custom hardware (ASICs) for mining in the foreseeable future.”

Reflecting drug use patterns and criminal justice policies throughout the 1990s and 2000s, prisons hold a disproportionate number of society’s drug abusers. Approximately 50% of state prisoners meet the criteria for a diagnosis of drug abuse or dependence, but only 10% receive medically based drug treatment.

Before electricity could even become remotely useful, the world around it needed to be changed. We needed wires to be run that can bring it to people’s homes. Towers needed to be installed and even with all of that, at first, electricity was mainly only useful for lights, some small electromagnetic use cases, but mostly it was a better candle.

A good rule of thumb is that you want to have enough RAM to equal or exceed the sum of two things: The amount of memory that your programs take (including the max heap setting you give to Solr), and the size of your Solr index(es) stored on that server.

The hard problem of consciousness is the problem of explaining how and why we have qualia or phenomenal experiences—how sensations acquire characteristics, such as colors and tastes.
