>Bosavi woolly rat: 82cm 1.5kg
>Kimberley Mueller: 26cm 0.3kg
The Bosavi woolly rat belongs to Mallomys, not to Rattus, which is the genus the word "rat" refers to if not further specified.

>Rat (informant)
>one who reveals confidential information in return for money
Oh, I see. So when you say "rat", you really mean "snitch". That leaves me a bit confused as to why you'd bring up a species of non-human animal, all of which are incapable of snitching on anyone.
Also, the statement "anything that can be done to a snitch can be done to a human being" is either a) tautological, or b) undemonstrable. a) if the word "snitch" refers exclusively to humans; b) if it can also refer to non-human creatures that may capable of snitching at an unspecified point in the future.

Hello /sci/. If there was a giant hole in the earth leading from one end to the other and- if you jumped in- would you just be pulled to the other side, or just be trapped in the middle by gravity?

Gravity is actually the force of all bodies in the universe pulling on all other bodies in the universe. However, the strength of the pull weakens with the square of the distance between two given bodies. Since the celestial bodies in the universe are so far apart, you can say for conveniences sake that you are only under the effect of the gravity of the nearest one (the earth).; in reality though, you are even (very, very weakly) being pulled towards other people, which means that the "your momma" joke about her having a gravitational pull is technically true.

You would lose energy and slowly oscillate and then come to a stop at the center.

/sci/ give me some "edgy" SSID ideas, I can have up to four or five on my WRT54Gv5 with DD-WRT. I also figured out I can up the power to about 1.6 watts, but cannot get the -o command to turn on "override" where you can set basically any Tx power. Also I can use channel 12 13 and 14 freely :)

Other than SSID ideas that are "edgy" can you think of any illegal (in the US in general or wherever) SSIDs? Just for lulz.

Dont use channels so close to each other (eg 12, 13, 14), you will suffer the wifi gods wrath.

Amateur; Create a captive portal, fill the login page with images of hardcore scat or something equally disturbing, name the SSID something inconspicuous like "The Bensons family wifi" and leave it running unprotected. Anyone who connects in an attempt to leach your internet will be met with a wall of scat the moment they open their browser.

For dbl-lulz name the wifi "Starbucks free wifi" and leave it running within range of one of their coffee shops, fireworks will fly!

Computer science or electrical engineering. What should i study? What would be my job prospects in both fileds?.I live in Estonia so I`m in bad luck because we dont have a Sillicon valley here and there is very little manufacturing going on, so I guess i`d better choose something completely different(like healthcare or the army), but I really want to choose either CS or EE. I`m not chosing computer enginering because I think that it offers much less jobs than software development(especially web dev), while with EE i`m thinking that i could come in handy in a variety of places, not to mention I could just start out as a simple electrician with a degree(thus more qualified and more promising career). But i`m scared to take EE because it`s engineering and I`m afraid I will suck at it, because it`s kinda hard right? Also there are little engineering jobs here, but more front end web dev jobs(which I sincerely hate).
So please help decide my future because I do hae to make a decision fast and I dont want to fuck up my life. Thank you!

Basically, my file/folder organization is pretty non-existent. EG: pictures folder has like 5 subfolders that make no fucking sense.

TL:DR how do you sort out your shit?
and are many fucks given about filenames

I am also tossing my hat in as a guy who had this idea independently. Mine is probably going to be written using the sfml library in c++ though. I guess a lot of us have similar issues :)

Hey, I'm ef54e2.

Would you be interested in working as a team on this? I already have a fully functional viewer and a PoC client/browser for the database, and a server. You can browse a virtual directory structure and open files with the image viewer. The server sends the file contents to the viewer through a socket (entire file resides in the client's memory; streaming is WIP) using a custom protocol.

You can take a look at the viewer code: https://github.com/Helios-vmg/Borderless
The server and browser code is private for now, but I'd be willing to share it with someone interested in working on it, of course. The client and server are written in C# (the server binary can run unmodified on both Windows and Linux) and the database is PostgreSQL.

Let me know, man. I really want to get this done, but my time is divided between my day job, real life, and other projects, so I can never find the time to work on this.

Can someone explain a quadratic equation in a way that makes it more intuitively understandable? My algebra teacher just rambles endlessly about unrelated shit.

Anonymous 17/05/01(Mon)01:02 No. 16491 ID: 64fdd2

shit's basic math bruh but your time would be better spent going to khan academy

Anonymous 17/05/02(Tue)07:52 No. 16493 ID: 9e6a0a

A quadratic equation is an equation that can be rewritten into the canonical form

0 = a*x^2 + b*x + c

where a, b, and c are specific constants and x is a free variable. A quadratic equation has at most two solutions (a solution is a value of x that makes the equation true) in the real set, but it may have one or no real solutions.

Any quadratic equation in the canonical form can be solved using the quadratic formula:

-b + (+/-square_root(b^2 - 4*a*c) / (2*a))

Note: if b^2 - 4*a*c < 0, then the equation has no real solutions. If it's zero then it has a single real solution. Otherwise it has two real solutions, given by the positive and negative square root.

I just wanted to make cool simulations and maybe invent something I dont know

So I downloaded Openfoam and apparently you need to be a master computer scientist just to be able to even start the program? How can I make things like pic related but easier?

SketchUp will let you easily build models. Pretty sure you can import them into better simulators.
