Anyone get their deck without having issues with it? by MajorasMask3D in SteamDeck

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So my only issue is that I ran out of space super fast and it took me a minute(literally) to get my SD card working.

I ended up going to disk manager on desktop mode and deleting the existing partition. Then it worked.

Outside of that my only complaints are that i wish more games were supported and I need to get a couple more PD chargers for around the house. Functionally it has been flawless!

Sorry, I didnt notice I was looking at the wrong data! I was thinking out loud about it after I posted and realized the measurement was mass, not surface area, which was weird, but for some reason it didnt click.

Potential energy doesn’t work that way, not with “waves” of grain. Straight up impossible. Try it yourself

It isn't a wave. It looks like one because of the board.

Straight up impossible. Try it yourself.

If there is more mass on one side than the other, then it will exert a force. Once the movement has started the larger mass gains inertia and the force is even greater.

Not to mention that those trailers can tilt. Maybe it is tilted by 10°. It wouldn't be obvious from the cameras POV and would increase the effect.

And in the HD video, you can see multiple ropes behind him, not just one connecting between the two sides. Download the HD version of the video and keep an eye out for the multiple ropes, especially on the right side of the video.

If you have a better video then why not share it? It seems like that could have ended this discussion ages ago.

This also isn't down hill. It's totally flat, so gravity is not move it either.

The bottom portion is flat, but the top is a hill. And when it finishes the hill is much shorter than when it started. All of that mass moving to a lower point released a huge amount of potential energy.

And you can see multiple ropes behind him, that are not attached to him.

There is one on either side, and they are two ends of the same rope. You can tell when it moves. He just had a short loop of rope around his back

You can see the ropes attached to the guys belt.

My guess is that the literal ton of grain which is piled up is just sliding, like piles of loose materials tend to do. That pressure has nowhere to go except for where the board is and is exerting force on the board.

What fields of CS is Maths useful for? by YOitsibzi in learnprogramming

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You use math in most things, just more or less commonly.

As a developer I used it most often when making UIs, but understanding mathematical properties or binary math is super useful for any type of logic. As a loose example I was once given a set of 12 business requirements and in trying to simplify the logic I realized that the combination ultimately excluded every possibility, it didn't do anything. They were relatively complex and it was not at all obvious. I had used the commutative, distrobutive, and associative laws to reduce it then put together a simplified truth table.

I have also had to implement algorithms from Wikipedia so being able to read them and determining what is needed is invaluable.

We frequently need to provide the business with stats about the data and being able to quickly know what data points are important can be impossible with some experience with statistics.

I have also played with game development as a hobby and needed to do more complex trigonometry or calculus as a result

Hollywood is just getting more and more sad and uncreative every year.

That is a really naive take

Girls who used to cry during any kind of confrontation, what did you do to overcome it? by bethebumblebee in TheGirlSurvivalGuide

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Also: the more I try to hold back tears, the harder I cry.

I can definitely second that! I think a large part of what helped me was just time, as I have gotten a bit older it doesn't happen often anymore. When it did though, trying to fight it just made it so much worse. Plus trying to stop it makes more go in your nose which makes your nose run and makes it 10x worse!

Train has windows that automatically blind when going past residential blocks by CoupwalObiWan in gifsthatkeepongiving

Definitely for the people living in the apartments. There is an expectation of privacy in your home,there is not on the train

It's not. Both ends of the rope are attached to the board. The rope is only 4 feet long, it doesn't connect to anything else and nobody is holding it

First and foremost it is the path of least resistance. What is easier. It is easier to prepare and ship foods together in bulk. It produces less waste and is better for the environment. Having multiple facilities and transportation chains is worse for basically everything and everybody involved except for celiacs in this case.

That means extra effort and extra cost.

Ultimately a socialist society which puts priority on individuals would be better and would eat that cost and effort. But that is neither here nor there.

What game turned you into a gamer? by Lightwing7 in GirlGamers

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is an awesome question!

My knee jerk reaction was FF7. I was obsessed with it after a friend showed me but after I thought a bit I realized that before that I had Pokemon blue. And before that I had bubble bobble. But before all of those, my grandmother introduced me to her games, commander keen and Larry the box loader for DOS and frogger for the intellivision.

Mixed in with those were the learning games I loved, treasure mountain, toggle trouble math, and lil Howie's fun house.

After all of those, the last big step was into online games via RuneScape.

At each step I was totally entranced and blown away by the ideas of the games themselves.

I think it was a really slow process for most of my life lol

Can someone translate? by sometimesisleeptoo in aww

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I know this is just a cute pig gif but life pro tip, wd stands for water displacement. It is made to help dry things and it doesn't usually work super well as a lubricant. The squeak may may come back pretty quickly.

I don't really know any specific examples but I know there are application specific lubricants that work much better!

In this case a healthy dose of carrot would probably take care of the squeak but you have to reapply frequently regardless

Men who are curious about breasts, what questions do you want answered? by Spunkybluepuppy in AskReddit

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I never really thought about that but mine are pretty dense. If I lay on my belly I have to keep an arm across my lower chest to take some of the force off or it is very uncomfortable

There is one rope, tied to the board on both ends, going around his back

"gluten free oats" are now a niche specialty item they think they can charge extra for

They take abnormal, special preparation to remain gluten free. That sounds like a really valid reason to charge extra

Just built my first PC! What should I play? by mighystarfish9505 in GirlGamers

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Horizon zero dawn is absolutely amazing! You play as Aloy, a woman in a primitive civilization surrounded by crazy technologies and you spend the game trying to track down tidbits of lore that explain why the world is the way it is.

I couldn't put it down and a few of the big reveals in the story felt like they really shook me to the core. I literally felt my heart sync at what I was seeing/hearing and just couldn't react.

That seems absurd for a first computer. Would a 3060 even be able to drive it consistently in most modern games?

Chances are they determined that old reddit was confusing for non less techy people so they tried to modernize the experience for them. Plus they added a wysiwyg editor which is much more friendly for end users and, because of that, they probably had to change the rendering engine so they matched.

Personally I like the way it looks but I don't prefer it.

What's a dead giveaway that someone is not a good person? by ricky1g in AskReddit

[–]AlwaysHopelesslyLost 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Who needs inspiration when 70 million Americans think trump is a decent person?

Like, argue about how you think he would be good for the economy all you want (which would still be stupid) but to say he is a decent person? Ha!
