superkuh comments on “The One Product You Should Buy Online: Eyeglasses”

superkuh comments on “The One Product You Should Buy Online: Eyeglasses” This is only true if your prescription is run of the mill and fairly weak. Anything above 5 diopter off, or with barrel corrections, astigmatism, etc and you should go to an actual optometrist. Zenni and the like use terrible materials with bad abbe numbers leading to chromatic abberation. They push ‘thin’ but what thing really means is high

dragonwriter comments on “Americans are having less sex and researchers are blaming Netflix” Men have been able to knock one out for free since, at least, the evolution of opposable thumbs (and those probably aren’t strictly necessary).

emforce comments on “How Serverless Computing Will Change the World in 2018″

emforce comments on “How Serverless Computing Will Change the World in 2018″ Hi Jacques, I really appreciate your comment! 1. Yeah, there are always going to be situations where low-latency is a must. 2. PaaSes most certainly do, I’m a huge advocate for CloudFoundry usage within my place of work and help onboard people for just this reason. FaaS will simply provide one extra layer of abstraction so that developers

conanbatt comments on “Keynesian Economics Is Hot Again”

conanbatt comments on “Keynesian Economics Is Hot Again” Milton Friedman was georgist on taxes: he was in favor of land value tax. Who else is in favor of LVT? Stiglitz, Krugman. Wait, left and right economist agree on LVT? “You might see disagreement between economists, but if you were to put a varied group of people and a set of economists in the same room, you will soon find that

shironineja comments on “130M-year-old nest of perfectly preserved dinosaur eggs discovered in China” Of course! Don’t your eggs have scales? Actually no it looks like that article has some other photo.

time4tea comments on “Quick Tips for Fast Code on the JVM”

time4tea comments on “Quick Tips for Fast Code on the JVM” Hmmmm. Fast code for my particular application, in my area of specialization. But not actually very helpful for 99.9% of applications that are actually deployed, which dont really suffer from the type of problem here, and far higher level optimisation would have greater benefit… E.g. prefer final fields; don’t share between threads unless you need to; there is little

cryptoz comments on “The randomness of this wall of lava lamps helps encrypt up to 10% of internet”

cryptoz comments on “The randomness of this wall of lava lamps helps encrypt up to 10% of internet” It’s open to the public‽ Seems like a bad idea to let a potential spy in there to set up a camera and de-randomize this source of random info. Also, the headline on HN declares it a fact that the lava lamps are assisting in the encryption, but the article is careful
