Re: You say tomato...
I doubt it, however I'm also having doubts about your pronunciation of cone...

Honestly, you want to have a go at people showing support for the NHS???
And what hate filled part of the country do you live in that you feel compelled to clap by shame???
I think the isolation is getting to a few on here, sure there's jingoistic bollox aplenty, but just CHEER UP!!!
Sorry for shouting :)
These articles always seem to take the same tone:
DAB is killing FM!
Which is patent nonsense, FM will continue even after the apocalypse means there's no one to listen any more.
I like DAB, sure I only listen to 6 Music, but I don't have infinite listening time.
I get a good signal out in the country, much better than cell signal, and the quality is excellent.
YMMV however, it's still radio after all.
Well I did mention apocalypse>
Not very much, space you see is really big...
They are seemingly rare, and whilst very massive, are only 5 orders of magnitude smaller than their biggest cousins.
The above is true for brown dwarves too, though they may not turn out to be quite as rare.
Overall I'd be very surprised if it made as much as a ppm adjustment, however I'm not a boffin,
I do all our companies out of hours and weekend support from home, so it was a no brainer I'd end up furlowed, a lot of our clients are betting shops...
Fortunately, the company is currently very solvent, so I won't see a salary drop, even though I offered.
I suspect that even if things go well, betting shops will be among the later groups to be reopened. As a result, I'll go back to work in Septemberish.
The schools will almost certainly open then, outbreak allowing.
For me, this is an inverse busmans holiday, no going out of the grounds at weekends is now no going out of the grounds every day...
The garden however is reeling from the constant attention! :) (hope the 5Kg of seed early potatoes shows up, and the tiller parts before that...)
Keep a stiff upper lip, and a hard weather chin, and we'll all be back in blighty for cocoa before you know it!
Nobody laughs in my face twice, and calling me a pompus idiot, would see me straight to a tribunal.
"A years salary? Why thank you..."
One idiot I worked for thought himself a proper bully, and was shocked when I just walked straight out the first time he tried it on me...
I get that life if difficult at these times, but self worth is much more important.
I'm not entirely sure why you would be 'juggling' two phones.
I'm available on my work phone in work hours, and my personal phone out of work hours.
If it's an emergency personal call in work hours, it won't get answered straight away, but will be dealt with reasonably quickly.
I work on-call from home, so I can see how other work situations would be different. I also put my personal phone down when at home, and spend time away from it, so those who know me see it as normal...
That section sound very like the usual:
" we didn't support this wholeheartedly enough in the begining, and because of that we should completely stop all funding and withdraw support at the first opportunity..."
The lack of foresight is quivalent to the old IBM world market for computers skit.
I know hindsight is perfect etc. but when you see who else is making their space programmes work well for them now, and how much effort is expended to achieve orbital capabilities, you have to wonder at the alternate universe where funding was maintained.
If you look at the Tesla battery progression, it seems like "hot swappable" batteries may become a thing.
They're already completely underneath, and have the charger and everything else attached as a whole module.
Aside from the cost, I suspect it's aready taking more time to update the onboard firmware than swap a model 3 battery whole. So charge at home or work, or head to a swap station for a fully charged and serviced replacement...
If the battery is out of the car, faster charging should be no trouble, or not even necessary?
Technically, the higher limits on energy density will be lower for sodium based cells. Sodium just weighs more than lithium...
However, it will very much depend on the actual engineering solutions, as electrolyte and electrode make the most difference. (ie. solid electrolyte : probably more dense, but stronger so less required???)
So I'm not sure...
Prove it, show me a published peer reviewed physics paper from before 1880...
Maxwell was a mathematician, along with so many truly insightful victorians and earlier.
I'm not denigrating anyone here, but they come from the age where real science was still rare and poorly understood. They were the first to mostly deny rumour and opinion, but still lacked the scientific method.
So not wrong at all...
You appear to have missed the point...
All the Victorian discovery also needed all the developments before it as well.
However, thermodynamics was the main physics cannon at that time, other aspects were mainly "interesting oddities" like the aether drift experiment etc.
I suggest looking at a university physics text book from before the turn of the century, and compare with a 1040s version. There's an order of magnitude more topics and depth.
Sure the Victorians were clever engineers,and there were a few early scientists, but the likes of Nicola Tesla never really followed the scientific method.
So the idea the the first half of the 20th century transformed science is actually unarguable, only the rosiest of tinted spectacles would see the last half of the 19th as having been more important...
