Top tips for comparing marine insurance policies... - YBW

https://www.ybw.com/expert-advice/boat-insurance-guide/choosing-an-insurer/top-tips-for-comparing-policies-5222

Saved by uncleflo on October 12th, 2019.

Go for the cheapest and hope you don't need to claim, or go for the most expensive because that must be the best? Or take a more logical approach with our handy checklist. Here are some issues to consider when comparing policies. If an accident happens because a worn out part fails, is the part excluded or is the claim rejected? If there is a No Claims Bonus, is it protected at its maximum? If you have a claim, what is the effect on NCB in the following year? Do the insurers need a condition survey? If not, and your boat is more than say, 10 years old, why not? Is the policy an Agreed Fixed Value policy?
If a ‘New for Old’ deduction can be applied, does it apply to parts and materials only, or to all costs including labour costs?

Marine - Victron Energy

Saved by uncleflo on October 11th, 2019.

Whether you are a leisure or a professional sailor, you know how important it is to have a reliable power supply so that your electronics continue to function properly - especially far out at sea. Victron Energy offers a broad range of equipment designed specifically with you and your on board power system in mind. We proudly present to you a new era in freedom and independence. 'Service' batteries provide power for everything except for 'engine-starting'. Demand for on-board electricity has to be matched with an adequate battery bank. Lithium Batteries provide the best solution for high power demand. Compared to lead/acid technology they are smaller and about 70% lighter for their capacity. They can be deeply discharged, without harm. More current is available throughout the discharge cycle …and they can be cycled thousands of times - resulting in a much longer service life. It is also 'easier' to drive power back into Lithium batteries - so charging-time is reduced.

International Certificate of Competency (ICC) | Comparable IYT Certificates | IYT Worldwide

https://www.iytworld.com/courses/international-certificate-of-competency-icc/

Saved by uncleflo on August 14th, 2019.

In the past, if you were chartering in Europe, an International Certificate of Competency (ICC) may have been sufficient proof of your ability to safely operate a boat. However, it has recently been brought to our attention that a number of  European charter companies and insurance companies will not accept an ICC as sufficient proof to command a yacht for a one week bareboat charter (power or sail). These companies are insisting that the charterer should hold an IYT International Flotilla Skipper or IYT International Bareboat Skipper, power or sail  (or equivalent qualification that is on their “approved” list). The charter companies and insurance companies do not have a comfort level handing over an expensive yacht to someone who they feel is not sufficiently qualified to command it for a weeks duration.

Offer accepted, now what? - Buyer Advice - Rightmove

Saved by uncleflo on April 18th, 2019.

Once the seller has accepted your offer, ask them to take it off the market. They don’t have to agree to this, but doing so will shut out other potential buyers. Now you need to move fast – the seller will want to see progress so try to avoid any unnecessary delays in getting the surveys and other legal work done. Complete the lender’s application form and send them the documents they require – this will include proof of your ID, evidence of your earnings, proof of your address over the last few months and your bank statements, so have these ready. The lender will then arrange for a valuation to be carried out on the property. This allows them to work out how fair the amount you’ve asked to borrow is compared to what they deem the property to be worth.

Congratulations – the searching, house viewings and big decisions have paid off and your offer on the house of your dreams has been accepted. Although it may seem like all the hard work is over, you are still at the early stages of the property purchase and able to pull out of buying the house without facing a financial penalty should you change your mind.
Additionally, the seller of the property can still decide to take a higher offer from somebody else, or choose to not move at all.

Displacement-Length Ratio of a Yacht: Skipper's Basics – no-frills-sailing.com

http://no-frills-sailing.com/displacement-length-ratio-sailing-yacht-dl-r-ratio/

Saved by uncleflo on February 24th, 2019.

When sailors are talking about their boats they often refer to ratios and numbers. That´s a tendency in human behaviour to try to generalize things to make them comparable. Of course, everybody knows that you cannot really describe apple to pears and so it´s worthless to describe a let´s say Seventies IOR-era King´s Cruiser 33 like mine to a modern day cruising yacht but we nevertheless tend to do so. The Displacement-Length-Ratio in general is a non-dimensional number. It sets into relation the displacement of a boat (expressed in pounds) to the length of her waterline (in feet). So, in general, this ratio is looking for the relation between the (heavy?) volume of water being pushed aside by a boat´s hull and the length (and therefore speed potential see for my article Hull speed vs. Froude number here) of her hull. Sounds fair enough?

Electric Boats, In General

http://www.growleymonster.com/eboat/eboatsgeneral.html

Saved by uncleflo on February 23rd, 2019.

Have you just bought an old sailboat with a dead or dying engine? You might have a boat worth less than a third of what a new diesel would cost, and you don't want to buy a used engine and inherit someone else's cast-off problems. Or maybe you are tired of smelling fuel, buying fuel, spilling fuel, running out of fuel, or hearing a smoke belching valve clattering clankasaurus hard at work, or crossing your fingers and hoping it will start when you actually need it. There are a lot of reasons to repower with electric drive. Electric is not for everyone. It has a lot of cons to balance out the obvious pros. But one con that is widely diseminated by self proclaimed experts is that it is expensive, and that is not necessarily the case at all. It is quite possible to replace that cranktankerous old infernal combustion engine very cheaply indeed. I did it, for less than $2500. I didn't know it at the time, but I could have spent even less.

Lens Tests: A Simple Method

http://www.zen20934.zen.co.uk/photography/LensTests/simplemethod.htm

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

This is a simplified subjective method of testing lenses optical sharpness. This should not be confused with tests for focus accuracy and discrimination in a 3D environment, that is a totally different issue although often confused by the inexperienced. A focus accuracy test is suggested here Focus Test. The advantage over this method, compared to just taking a shot of a garden etc, is elimination of variables such as subject and camera movement, insufficient depth of field, flatness of field and variations in focus location. It uses a nice consistent high contrast subject to make comparisons easy; checking sharpness on general photographic views is not very easy. As the method is subjective, it is worth testing against a known good lens for comparison.

Here, I’m taking a look at various RF settings in Handbrake, both in terms of visuals and filesize. I started with encodes from the “24” DVD (Season 6, Episode 1). If you have the same DVD and are looking to reproduce this test, the following settings were used: I tested the following RF values (listed in Handbrake under “Constant Quality”: 0, 10, 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32 I’ll start with a few screenshots at different RF values. There’s a video below too, but it comes with a bit of a caveat so might not show everything well for you. Pictures should work for nearly everyone. Note that the first one (RF0) is for reference (lossless). Worth noting that x264’s psychovisual enhancements (trellis, etc) do a pretty good job of keeping detail where you’d notice it (the face), at the expense of the stuff you normally wouldn’t notice while watching (like those background areas). Of course, this only goes so far – once the RF value is high enough, there’s no saving Jack’s facial features from the effects of compression!

Youtube video quality and bitrate… What kind of compression does YouTube use? Every time we post a video on Youtube will ALWAYS recompressed. Youtube DO NOT leaves intact the video posted. YouTube, and a few of the other video services, also automatically deliver different video codecs to different platforms like iOS or Windows. Youtube recommends sending videos with high bitrates but after several tests I have verified that it does not change the quality beyond a certain bitrate, it is more important the quality of the source of acquisition rather than the bitrate. How much does Youtube compress video sent? How much the bitrate is allocated to video based on resolutions, youtube will assign a different bitrate to each resolution, and use 2 types of CODEC (H264 and VP9)

2 Sentiment analysis with tidy data | Text Mining with R

https://www.tidytextmining.com/sentiment.html

Saved by uncleflo on December 23rd, 2018.

In the previous chapter, we explored in depth what we mean by the tidy text format and showed how this format can be used to approach questions about word frequency. This allowed us to analyze which words are used most frequently in documents and to compare documents, but now let’s investigate a different topic. Let’s address the topic of opinion mining or sentiment analysis. When human readers approach a text, we use our understanding of the emotional intent of words to infer whether a section of text is positive or negative, or perhaps characterized by some other more nuanced emotion like surprise or disgust. We can use the tools of text mining to approach the emotional content of text programmatically, as shown in Figure 2.1.

Weighting words using Tf-Idf - NLP-FOR-HACKERS

Saved by uncleflo on December 23rd, 2018.

If I ask you “Do you remember the article about electrons in NY Times?” there’s a better chance you will remember it than if I asked you “Do you remember the article about electrons in the Physics books?”. Here’s why: an article about electrons in NY Times is far less common than in a collection of physics books. It is less likely to stumble upon the “electron” concept in NY Times than in a physics book. Let’s consider now the scenario of a single article. Suppose you read an article and you’re asked to rank the concepts found in the article by importance. The chances are you’ll basically order the concepts by frequency. The reason is simply that important stuff would be mentioned repeatedly because the narrative gravitates around them. Combining the 2 insights, given a term, a document and a collection of documents we can loosely say that:importance ~ appearances(term, document) / count(documents containing term in collection).

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

In the last few years Robot integrator T&D in collaboration with a leading supplier of natural stone, Marmi e Graniti d'Italia (MGI), has applied its technology and innovation for applications in the stone industry. One of the latest frontiers in the field is definitely the interaction between ABB robots and natural stone. Using the creation of a replica of artist Amedeo Modigliani's infamous "HEAD" sculpture in white granite, T&D explored the application of a robotic milling system to evaluate whether industrial robots are capable of the demands and challenges that processing stone requires. The results of the experiment surpassed all expectations offering a quality of cut comparable to CNC machinery. The possibility of perfecting the approach, integrating milling and polishing, is currently being explored in collaboration with ABB integrator T&D Robotics.

By reporting your own positions, MarineTraffic will be able to display your vessel on the Live Map. Visibility: Real-time vessel positions displayed on the MarineTraffic Live Map are extremely useful to a wide spectrum of users closely-related to the shipping industry one way or the other. To name a few, ship owners, agents, pilots, tug operators, port authorities, crews' families and friends, passengers, cargo handlers or recipients, brokers, leisure boaters, sailing racers, ship chandlers, bunkering companies, yacht charterers or brokers may have a reason to monitor the positions of your vessel. The list of interested parties is unlimited while the numbers speak for themselves; the visibility of the MarineTraffic website is such that the number of visitors per day well exceeds the half a million mark! Safety: Although MarineTraffic is not intended to be used as a safety tool, there are many cases where making your position widely known could enhance your safety at sea. Making your position known to the public may be complementary to the official means of distress reporting (such as EPIRB or DSC radio) and may help in Search & Rescue (SAR) procedures where the position of the vessel cannot be acquired by other means. Historical data: MarineTraffic stores historical data in its database. Historical data regarding the past movements of your vessel could be accessed for many reasons; such as just for fun or recollection, for statistical reasons, for analyzing tracks in comparison to weather conditions, for accident investigation etc. Consider it as an online log of yours!

Is making clothing in the UK really more expensive?

https://makeitbritish.co.uk/clothing/making-clothing-uk-really-expensive/

Saved by uncleflo on November 28th, 2018.

There is a myth that making clothing in the UK is much more expensive than manufacturing overseas. We’d like to dispel that myth and show you why that’s not the case, even on simple products such as T-shirts. Let’s first start by looking at all of the different costs associated with making a good quality, branded T-shirt that retails for £25. The average manufacturing cost for that T-shirt in the Far East, making a small quantity of a few hundred pieces, is around £4.24*. That price includes the fabric, cutting and stitching of the garment, labelling, pressing and packing, and the factory overhead and margin. The same T-shirt made in the UK is around £8.85. It’s seems like it’s more than double, but hear us out! When clothing is made overseas there are several other costs that need to be taken into account before that product is ready to hit the shop floor. Shipping and duty can be as much as £1.75 on a simple T-shirt, depending on the size of the order. And if the brand is buying through an agent they will take their cut too. So now you get to a more likely cost of £7 for the Far Eastern-made T-shirt, compared to the £8.85 for the British one. But it doesn’t stop there. Retailers traditionally work on a profit margin of around 60% on a branded item when they sell it in their stores. A simple way to work that out is roughly double the wholesale cost plus VAT. The problem is that retailers have to take into account the fact that not all of the product that they buy sells at full price.

Congratulations on being a new drone pilot! We all understand the excitement of getting a new drone. But don’t rush into flying just yet! It’s relatively straightforward to take off, but do you know every button’s function or have a good understanding of how your drone reacts to the remote controller? Before you head out and get it in the air, you should know your drone well. As it’s the best way to prevent crashes and flyaways. Furthermore, it’s being responsible for the safety of yourself, others, and your drone. Operating a drone can sometimes be tricky. So to avoid any silly missteps, it’s essential to read the product’s manual and get familiar with DJI’s GO apps and pay close attention to preflight preparations. After you understand your drone’s capabilities and limitations choose a safe test flight zone and practice some basic maneuvers before you take the leash off. Additionally, remember to take advantage of free online resources. You can find all you need to know and do before your maiden flight on the DJI Support and DJI Tutorials YouTube channels. Finally, if any problem occurs, you can always contact DJI Support on Facebook or Twitter for help. Here, we’ve summarized 15 tips to help first-time drone pilots prepare for their air adventures.

How much could 10 french franc in 1898 buy in today's rupees? What was the worth of 1 billion German mark in 1923 or 1000 Polish zloty in 1980? Was an annual wage of 25 pounds per year in 1780 much compared to the wage rates at the time? To answer these questions the Historical Currency Converter uses a short-cut, by comparing the worth of various sums in various currencies in their purchasing power of Swedish consumer goods and the pay of workers in Sweden. Provided a country's purchasing power parity does not change much compared to Sweden, this should give a reasonable accounts of the worth of money over time also for other countries.

Quora - What is the best JS, CSS, HTML, and PHP minifier?

https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-best-JS-CSS-HTML-and-PHP-minifier

Saved by uncleflo on June 1st, 2018.

JavaScript: I’d rate Google’s Closure Compiler as the best, and UglifyJS second. There isn’t much data out there comparing them, especially the current or recent versions of them, but Closure gets lots of attention from talented people and its minification is guided by smart optimizations. In that sense, it’s a true compiler, doing things like dead code elimination and some restructuring. CSS: CSSO and CSS Nano are both good. CSSO was created by Yandex, and I’m generally impressed with Yandex’s talent. (They’re the Google of Russia, sort of.). HTML: As far as I know, there isn’t a good HTML minifier right now. WebMarkupMin might be good, but it’s new and I haven’t tested it. The most popular is HTML Minifier, but it’s buggy, poorly documented, and unsafe – it can easily break your website, and they’re strangely unwilling to fix their bugs (see this bug). A golang minifier deletes the `<html>` and `<head>` tags, which is fascinating. For some reason HTML minifiers seem to be in the hands of people who are willing to take alarming risks with HTML – it’s a weird bubble in the universe. We could really use a focused project to build a reference HTML minifier, and I’ve asked Cloudflare to open-source theirs (but I have no idea if they will).

NaCl (pronounced "salt") is a new easy-to-use high-speed software library for network communication, encryption, decryption, signatures, etc. NaCl's goal is to provide all of the core operations needed to build higher-level cryptographic tools.
Of course, other libraries already exist for these core operations. NaCl advances the state of the art by improving security, by improving usability, and by improving speed. The following report contrasts NaCl with other libraries from a security perspective: (PDF) Daniel J. Bernstein, Tanja Lange, Peter Schwabe, "The security impact of a new cryptographic library".

Comparison of different SQL implementations

Saved by uncleflo on June 7th, 2017.

The goal of this page — which is a work in progress — is to gather information relevant for people who are porting SQL from one product to another and/or are interested in possibilities and limits of 'cross-product' SQL. The following tables compare how different DBMS products handle various SQL (and related) features. If possible, the tables also state how the implementations should do things, according to the SQL standard. I will only write about subjects that I've worked with personally, or subjects which I anticipate to find use for in the near future. Subjects on which there are no significant implementation variances are not covered. Beta-versions of software are not examined. I'm sorry about the colors. They are a result of wanting to mark each DBMS differently and at the same time wanting to be relatively nice to printers.
