New Textbook/Book Request Thread deadbabies ## Mod ## 13/08/25(Sun)06:03 No. 15270 ID: f34135 [Reply] Stickied

First off, hello there, I'm deadbabies, and I will be taking over as /sci/ moderator. Rules will remain the same. Please use the report function if you see posts that violate the rules, but also do not abuse it.

I have officially expanded the scope of /sci/ a bit. You may discuss Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics here now. No science is discriminated against as long as it's of the peer-reviewed variety. If someone wants to discuss Anthropology or Social Science, by all means, let them. If you do not like it, just don't post in the thread.

The IRC channel #/sci/ is now (finally) re-registered and I am running as operator on here. Feel free to stop by and say hi. I do leave my computer idling on IRC, so check back or leave me a message if you have any ideas, suggestions, or just want to tell me off. You can get onto #/sci/ by joining the server irc.7chan.org at port 6667. You can also use SSL at port 6697 but you will have to set your client to accept invalid certificates.

ADDITIONALLY and IMPORTANTLY I have had several requests on IRC regarding the old Ebook FTP that we used to have. Unfortunately, the mod who ran it entered the military and no longer runs or maintains it. I have no plans to make another one, but if one of you guys would like to, by all means advertise here.

That being said, I'm just going to leave this link here:


You may find what you seek here.

I will be unstickying the old ebook/source articles thread. Please post any new ebooks/source articles here, and feel free to post any working links from the old thread there; I will eventually be deleting it.

If you suffer from insomnia, then I can imagine how much it interferes with your life. I had insomnia for a long time, but I eventually solved this problem with cbd gummies. In general, you can choose any form of cbd, this online store https://www.cornbreadhemp.com/products/full-spectrum-cbd-gummies has a fairly large selection of cbd supplements, but cbd gummies are my favorite because they are delicious.

Dear anon, anglo "acandemics" e.g. self entitled idiots with a massiv complex and old farts stealing your time. Its no fun, they use the method to overwhelm the student with information therefor triggering brounouts and other mental defects, at the end they give you a diploma. You have less money than a bum and you have to study weekends in a shitty dorm with other students and as a nerd you get excluded everywhere socialy I was only at 8 events out drinking the rest of the time was not fun and you have less money as a student than a bum so you cant invite cunny, cnt enoy cunny and you are kept angry therefore productive thats what they really think thats how stupid the a"academia" in Glasgow is stay away anon the will give you a mental damage and then give you the fault and ignore you and alugh about you stay away anon do not do the same mistake stay away from anglo uni

For discussing software minimalism.
>What is computing minimalism?

>Why is software minimalism good?
- Fewer bugs
- Better performance
- Lower memory footprint
- Better maintainability
- Higher scalability
- Longer software lifetime
- Smaller attack surface

Artificial sweeteners Anonymous 16/02/21(Sun)10:07 No. 16288 ID: f705da [Reply]

Supposing a given artificial sweetener -- say, saccharine or aspartame -- was a carcinogen, what kind of cancer would it produce and by what mechanism?
If this question is too hypothetical to answer, by what mechanism would ingesting a non-toxic chemical cause cancer?

No, it's more akin to saying wounds are caused by being clubbed.

> Cancer isn't just caused by mutagens for fucks sake, if that was the cause we would have cured cancer long ago.

Interesting conclusion, I was unaware we found a way to eliminate any possibility of mutations occurring.

Anonymous 22/02/03(Thu)03:16 No. 18094 ID: a5935d

Being caused by a virus isn't the same thing as being a virus.

The virus introduced mutations in the cells which - later - caused the cancer.

By inoculating against the virus you can prevent the mutations and therefore the cancer.

Anonymous 22/02/10(Thu)20:11 No. 18105 ID: be6f8f

I don't know if it's a virus, but some people's stupidity is definitely a disease, and we need some sterilization.

Wait, isn't simulation theory viable? Because in our own universe we could easily create a simulation by simulating natural brain inputs using wires and electronics... Fed directly into the brain...

Do you know how many theories are viable? The question is if there is a reason to assume they are true. There is no reason to assume we live in a simulation.

Notice that all the vile shit that they're planning for the great reset won't be open access here. We'll get it way after the research on digital currency replacing the dollar and social credit to go along with the international justice system is in place.

Atmospheric absorption/scattering of sunlight Anonymous 18/07/27(Fri)04:35 No. 16685 ID: 953c1f [Reply]

File 153265890490.png - (96.72KB , 620x359 , solar-panels-australia.png )

Hey, /sci/. I'm running a simulation of solar panel efficiency and I need some way to calculate energy production from the sun's position in the sky. For example, assuming a panel that is always pointer at the sun, when the sun is closer to the horizon the panel will generate less energy than when it's high in the sky.

I'm looking for something like f(x radians) = y W/m^2.

Sorry to hear that. Try moving to a less shitty latitude?

SecondHand 22/03/02(Wed)15:22 No. 18174 ID: 765a67

You could try to find a climatic compromise, for example. Suppose you get solar panels power supply in summer and traditional electricity in winter. How about that? As for house darkness you can get to newmarket window replacement https://thwindowsdoors.com/newmarket-window-replacement/ and change your small old windows to multiple new ones. This will attract some extra light, I assume.
