You seem to have found beauty and peace of mind in the so-called "freedom" Linux grants you. I admit, with freedom you do get this feeling of power, of being in control, of being able to get lost in the forest, of tasting the forbidden fruit, of seeing what you weren't meant to see. All of these are beautiful things and this is one of the reasons why I took interest in Linux in the first place.

However, as much as this is touching and as much it's fun to discuss philosophy - I just need to simply get shit done. Quickly.

Every single problem that isn't related to getting shit done equals wasted time. Time, in my opinion, is what Computer Science (and thus, Informatics) is about. Thanks to computers we can solve tedious, mind-numbing and difficult tasks, tasks that no living being could do without spending an insane amount of time on.

There's a world of wonder out there, it's an uncharted territory of discoveries - if not scientific, then personal. I'm doing tasks on Project Euler sometimes and it's always super satisfying to get the right answer and it's even more satisfying to discover that the very same can be done even swifter.

However, figuring out why can't I launch a web browser under one of the many distros of Linux? Nowhere near in terms of excitement or bettering oneself. Someone out there has already fixed this problem or even wrote his distro in a way that prevents this problem from appearing in the first place.

I'm a programmer, I could probably figure out what happened - but the question is: how much time will it take? Couldn't I do something better in the meantime? Something more interesting? I probably could, so why wouldn't I?

As for Msc. I already got mine a few months ago :3

WATCH: Honey on Tap: A New Beehive that Automatically Extracts Honey without Disturbing Bees [video]


You don’t understand how fabulous this is!!

  • This hive structure, if it works like the descriptions imply, would make beehives something super affordable, that just about anyone could install near their home and maintain. AND it would reduce the cost of harvesting honey by more than just the money-
  • A typical honey harvesting device costs $200-300, plus the time it takes to use to harvest. For a Langstroth hive, you have to suit up (gear which can be pricey), remove the comb (which is highly disturbing to the bees), install said comb in the extractor (scraping all the caps off the comb first), spin out the honey, RE-open the hive (after suiting up and again disturbing the bees), and put the comb back.
  • If you use a method that doesn’t require an extractor, you usually end up destroying the comb, which is damaging to the hive and intensively laborious for your bees because they have to completely remake the combs from scratch.

What this looks like is that you probably wouldn’t even need to suit up any time you wanted to harvest honey (though you would still need the equipment for installation of the colony and for inspections, etc, or if you’re still getting used to the colony). Removing the viewing window on a hive doesn’t disturb the bees at all (ours hardly even notice us), and the shift in the comb to start extraction is unlikely to cause enough disturbance to merit a response.

The bees get to keep/recycle all the materials they created (aside from the honey), and you get fresh, almost-effortless honey.

Perhaps the most important and AWESOME thing about this?? The “Flow Frames” that allow for this type of extraction can be used with pre-existing hive boxes. This means that folks who already own bees that are being kept in most kinds of hives, especailly the standard Langstroth hive boxes, can replace their old frames with Flow frames without having to start from scratch.

The Indiegogo campaign to start production on these launches in just a few hours (11AM AU EST, Feb. 23rd, 2015), so if you want to help these folks revolutionize bee-keeping, I would suggest signing up for their mailing list!

Omg. I’ve never seen this!! It’s amazing.

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT. About 6 years ago I remember hearing the bee population is depleting. I can’t imagine what it’s like now… THESE CAN SAVE THE BEES. Honestly, if it’s a harmless environment for them to do their thang, then it will attract more and more bees, and probably start breeding in that hive. And ITS AS EASY AS SETTING IT IN YOUR BACK YARD. Bees are totally chill if you don’t piss them off first. Once I move into a house instead of an apartment, I am getting one of these, maybe even one for my neighbour. SAVE THE BEES

You know how 1st world feminists get told that they don’t need feminism? They’re told that they should be glad they’re not “really oppressed” like the women in 3rd world countries. That things could always be worse.

You know what my mother tells me? She says I don’t need feminism because I should be glad I’m born in an urban city of Pakistan. She says, at least I wasn’t born in a rural area where girls are married off to men twice their age. That things could always be worse.

And our house maid, Shabana, who was married to her uncle at 15 and, at 18, has 2 children, she doesn’t even know what feminism is. She was told by her father that she should be glad her husband doesn’t beat her and hasn’t thrown tehzaab (acid) at her. That things could always be worse.

Am I the only one seeing a very disturbing pattern here?

I had a teacher who refused to let any of us say “its okay” because of this exact reason.

It has taken me years to learn that it’s also okay to say “Thank you.” when someone apologizes.
It is perfectly acceptable to acknowledge that someone has apologized, and still refuse to accept their apology. There are things in this world that cannot be apologized for.

I feel like you can tell a lot about a person by how they react when their apology is not accepted.
