@fribbledom This is basically futures traders who never had any interest in actually getting the oil and had no way to store it, being unable to sell their futures to anyone who could store it. They ended up having to pay people to take it and store it when it'll be ages before it can be used or sold. Basically, the people who were making money off of having money are taking a haircut in this.
@fribbledom I've heard stories of 3-phase compilers where each phase was on a different floppy disk, you would start the compile, take a walk around the building and grab some coffee, come back and swap the disk, do another lap and have more coffee, put the 3rd disk in, etc. I didn't get into C until much later and stuck to faster to compile languages like Turbo Pascal when compilers were slow.
@fribbledom Those are antibody tests. You can do them at home, but they're not yet approved by the FDA for use in the US yet. They don't test if you have it but haven't started producing antibodies yet, so they lag a tiny bit behind the lab tests that the US is using. Of course, it's alibaba so it could be counterfeit as well.
@fribbledom It becomes like Malaria in those countries. It's just something you just get, and you'll probably survive, but not always.
@fribbledom Also, they're aggressively using medications that they haven't done a double blind trial on yet, including hydroxychloroquine and some HIV antivirals, so that could be driving their serious and death rates down.
@AnonymousMe Larry Correia posted "(worst case scenario, you should all go stock up on Larry Correia novels. I recommend the mass market paperbacks for softness. And no, I’m not offended, I get royalties either way! It’s a win/win)"
@fribbledom If you look at South Korea, the place doing the most testing on their population and catching more mild cases, the rate is closer to 0.7%. That's still a massive number though.
@deshipu Eventually we'll be down to a 0 day workweek, because we have no days left in a week at all.
@deshipu Tuesday, the new Monday.
@fribbledom Same here, darn cold for almost 2 weeks now. Hope yours is shorter.
@fribbledom No Novell Dos, but I did run Novell Personal Netware for a year or so, with my 10base-2 network.
@fribbledom I previously used AtariDos, Dos, Desqview, and Slackware Linux before moving to OS/2 finally, but it was the best OS for several years there.
@pro Makes sense, probably better to avoid unnecessary travel for now, maybe move the trip back several months.
The electric company sent me an email about electric cars. They compared a midsized car vs an econobox electric. It didn't break even until 2 years... Then I looked closer and found that they had used a nearly base model electric price, vs a much more specced out midsized car. The price difference was about $9500 over the standard price on the midsized car, for a total difference of $12000 instead of $3000. Even their 5-year projection doesn't show you saving that much with the electric.
