The code does what I wanted it to do, but is missing many features that would make it actually good :(

Ah well, I should learn that my estimates for how long things take are always much lower than they should be.

Every time I open this thread, and only this thread, the second newest post is where I start, and I always have to scroll up to read the post above it, which is always new to me.

Is this some sort of long-con joke too?
Yeah, this is happening to me, and also, if I click a link to a last post on a page (if it was quoted in another post, for example), it gives me the next page instead.

Is it any good? He just hosts with various stand-up comics doing their act, right?

Recently my computer's been having a really odd problem. Three times today, my network connection has suddenly disappeared and left me being told there are no networks in range. Now that's pretty odd because at any given time there are typically around 4-6 networks in range I can detect, not least the wireless one in the hallway about 10 meters from me. And no matter what I do with network detection, my laptop can't seem to find anything, not even my own router even after restarting it - which makes me fairly sure this is a problem with the laptop and not the router.

The other strange thing is that I seem to be able to fix this issue by putting the computer into sleep mode and waking it up immediately, after which it's able to detect networks again. But that still means I can't do many things I'd want to online, like streaming, talking to people or playing Dominion, since a dropped connection means everything is gonna go. So I'd like to actually fix this. The problem is I have no idea what might be causing it. A quick search online didn't really reveal anything useful (mostly it's dumb things like 'have you checked your router is turned on, have you restarted it, have you turned your laptop on and off?' which obviously I have tried). Any of you guys got an idea what the issue might be? I'm kinda stumped on this one.

I'm usually the last person to say, "This needs a remake," but hear me out…

Next year, there needs to be a movie or series of movies about a plucky teen whose best friend is a mad scientist. This scientist steals plutonium from the North Koreans to power a time machine in a Prius. During the firefight, the plucky teen accidentally gets 88 mpg and pilots the time machine to 1985 where he inadvertently stops his parents from falling in love, so he has to go to the Who Ya Gonna Call dance so his mother and father can finally meet, though his father needs persuasion from a ghostly image shown on an iPhone. The teen's musical aptitude is put to the test when he has to fill in after an injury befalls the keytar player.

I call it: Back to the Electric Boogaloo.

Then, in the sequel, he goes to 2045, where they still don't have flying cars.

Also, I would love to have a car that gets 88 mpg.

Recently, I noticed that when I pour hot water into my tea cup, the water level quickly drops a bit. At first, I thought maybe the tea bag was absorbing the water, but why that would make the height of the water in the cup draw was beyond me. But then, I noticed that the height of the hot water still dropped even when there was no tea bag.

What I was witnessing must have been the water decreasing in volume as it quickly cooled and contracted once in the cup. Go material science! Or does material science only care about solids? Whatever, that's the domain of physics it reminded me of.
Are you sure it wasn't the cup expanding due to heat?  That seems much more likely to me.  Water is essentially incompressible...

Water may be incompressible, but it, like a solid, still changes volume as temperature changes.  Back of the envelope calculation says that 250 mL of boiling water will lose about 6 mL of volume in dropping to 60 °C.  The volumetric expansion of a ceramic is in the range of 30 ppm/K, or about 0.1% going from 20 °C to 60 °C.  So the cup expands by ~0.25 mL.
Going back to this again:
I just realized I see this happen in my cup too, but I don't think it's due to any expansion/contraction.  I use loose-leaf tea and the infuser I have sits on top of my cup and covers the whole cup so the only way air can escape is through the holes in the infuser.  What I have found is that surface tension keeps water in the infuser higher than the level of the water in the cup, until the pressure head is too high and whoosh, the level in the infuser equalizes with the level of the water in the cup, giving it the appearance of losing volume as you pour and look from the top.  Well, at least I'm pretty sure that's what's happening in my cup...

If you are willing to get flexible with the word "car" and consider 84 mpg in the same league as 88 mpg then maybe: http://www.eliomotors.com/

I was assuming most normal people just use tea bags like the rest of us.  (I don't drink tea unless sick, and even then only herbal.)

The methods for preparing tea depend on the tea. Tea bags are the equivalent of Big Money Ultimate in tea brewing.

Well, I generally dislike hot drinks anyway except for hot cocoa.  And I dislike bitter anything.  An 8 oz cup of tea needs about 2 tbsp of sugar to be palatable for me, and there isn't enough sugar in the world to make coffee palatable.

Coffee is awesome.  Black or with any combination of cream/sugar.

You sound just like me 3 years ago! I came around on tea because in Japan I was not going to refuse green tea so I sucked it up (literally I suppose) until I liked it. I also have a couple of close friends who are tea snobs and would tell you that there are a bunch of teas that aren't bitter and don't need sugar to be tasty.

With coffee, try it iced or blended! With lots of cream and sugar, of course. For whatever reason, coffee really loses its bitter edge when served cold.

Yep, it's the tea bags.

I guess you could call me a tea snob, and I put sugar in all teas and milk in Indian ones. I don't do it because the teas are bitter though, I do it because I'm used to it. If a tea is bitter, I assume that I didn't prepare it correctly.
