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.

How to Test Your Lens | B&H Explora

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/explora/photography/tips-and-solutions/how-to-test-your-lens

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

So, you just bought a shiny, new, and maybe expensive, lens for your camera, and being the savvy consumer, you did your homework. You pored over customer reviews on the B&H Photo website, read online reviews splattered all over the Internet, grabbed a copy of every photo magazine that reviewed the lens, bookmarked dozens of websites, and now have the lens’s MTF curve charts burned into your retinas. Now, your lens is here and it is time to go out shooting. Honestly, not a problem. Your lens should be as good as it can be and, as photographers, we want to take photos. So, stop reading and go out and make some photographs! Still here? OK, let me tell you why you might want to test that lens yourself. The main reason is that even with today's precision computer-controlled manufacturing techniques, there are variations in each and every lens that rolls off an assembly line. This means that some examples will be better than others. Some lenses will be outstanding and others will make you wonder if all of those glowing reviews you read online were completely bogus.

Comparing x264 “RF” settings in Handbrake (examples) | mattgadient.com

Saved by uncleflo on January 6th, 2019.

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!

NFS - which ports to open? - Storage - Discussions

https://discussions.citrix.com/topic/289912-nfs-which-ports-to-open/

Saved by uncleflo on December 23rd, 2018.

No problem connecting to NFS with firewalls disabled,but even with TCPView it's not obvious which ports require opening.
We've opened port 2049 for both UDP and TCP and all seems well, but there's a selection of ports mentioned across the web for NFS. So with XenServer just 2049? Sharing filesystems by NFS: Regardless of which choice is made for ID mapping you will need to adjust any firewall the system is using so that NFS clients can communicate with the server. You will need to ensure that the following ports are open before sharing any filesystem: UDP: 111, 1039, 1047, 1048 and 2049. TCP: 111, 1039, 1047, 1048 and 2049. See _this article_ Tobias

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

I realise when I first released this post, it was January, a time of year that not everyone is throwing themselves into water without a wetsuit. A lot of you have been asking about sustainable swimwear options again over the past month with this never-ending heatwave we are having, so I thought I’d update and repost this guide. With environmental issues becoming much more prominent in the mainstream media, a quick google into the textiles and fashion industries will provide you with endless reasons to choose slow fashion. If you didn't follow Fashion Revolution and the #whomademyclothes movement go and check it out, alongside the documentary The True Cost. The price is often more because these companies pay workers a fair living wage, and source sustainably grown and produced materials. I've been trying to buy everything I wear consciously and not fall into the consumerism trap too often (although I'm occasionally slip up and find myself on the high street, damn those glittery topshop dinosaur socks). I try to follow the guide lines:

London housing crisis extends to the water

https://edition.cnn.com/2016/07/26/world/london-water-crisis/index.html

Saved by uncleflo on December 20th, 2018.

London vies with Hong Kong and Monaco for the unenviable title of the world's most expensive city for housing. The average house price in the English capital is now nearly £600,000 ($787,000), and a study from the charity Shelter found just 43 properties affordable to people on an average income. Several of these properties were houseboats. Life on London's 100-mile network of canals, or 42-mile stretch of the River Thames, has become a popular option for beleaguered citizens, and such homes can cost as little as £20,000 ($26,500). But as more people swap apartments for houseboats, the popular, romantic vision is giving way to a harsh reality.

Different Types of Chairs For Your Living Room!

https://gharpedia.com/types-of-chairs-in-living-room/

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

Merriam Webster dictionary defines ‘chairs’ as a seat typically having the legs and a back for one person. It’s interesting that following this simple definition we have around us so many variations of this basic type of furniture. There are different types of chairs that you must know before you plan for your home furniture. For every activity that we do while sitting our comfortable postures needed are different and so the types of chairs, we need for the same should also be differently designed! For instance, a dining chair cannot be used for relaxing and vice versa. It is for the same reason that, more than colour and material it is the usage which makes one chair different from another.

Fundamentals of Restoration Projects

http://www.docksidereports.com/fundamentals_of_restoration_proj.htm

Saved by uncleflo on November 29th, 2018.

During my three decades as a marine surveyor, I've always been amazed about two aspects of restoring old boats what, in the marine trade, is known as a refit. First is that the people who can best afford to do them, usually don't. Followed by those who can't afford such projects are usually the ones that attempt them. Such projects usually go wrong because the owner failed to appreciate the costs, and to estimate them in advance. There are no good deals on fixer uppers with boats. There is just expensive and more expensive. Money is the name of the game, and if you haven't got it, then it's a mistake to think that you can do a refit on the cheap.

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.

Ricoh’s Theta V Is Sharper and More Powerful, But Let's Talk About 360 Video...

https://gizmodo.com/ricoh-s-theta-v-is-sharper-and-more-powerful-but-lets-1798544146

Saved by uncleflo on October 8th, 2018.

Ricoh has been in the 360-degree camera game for a long time—way before johnny-come-latelies like Samsung and Nikon. Things started back in 2013 with the original Ricoh Theta and now four years later, the company is back with the $430 Theta V. New features include 4K video and spatial audio capture, however, even with all those bells and whistles I’m having a hard getting excited about Ricoh’s new camera. The problem isn’t with the camera itself, it’s the medium. As I think back on the thousands of videos I watched since 2013, not a single 360 video sticks out in my a something truly memorable. Even when I dig a little deeper and consider things like Casey Neistat’s video about droneboarding or a tour through California Extreme with Steve Lin and Drew Scanlon, the source of the white blinking guy meme, I can’t help but think that both of these clips would have been better as boring flat clips.

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).

Class patterns

https://javascript.info/class-patterns

Saved by uncleflo on April 8th, 2018.

There’s a special syntax construct and a keyword class in JavaScript. But before studying it, we should consider that the term “class” comes from the theory of object-oriented programming. The definition is cited above, and it’s language-independent. In JavaScript there are several well-known programming patterns to make classes even without using the class keyword. And here we’ll talk about them first. The class construct will be described in the next chapter, but in JavaScript it’s a “syntax sugar” and an extension of one of the patterns that we’ll study here.

select without from

https://modern-sql.com/use-case/select-without-from

Saved by uncleflo on March 27th, 2018.

Let's get that straight from the beginning: select without from is not standard conforming SQL. Full stop. Nevertheless it works in many databases—also in standard conforming ones. That's no contradiction: the standard explicitly allows conforming databases to “provide user options to process non-conforming SQL statements”0. The behavior of such statements is completely up to the vendor, of course. So what alternative does the standard offer to select without from? A surprisingly simple and yet powerful one: values without insert.

Operational Transformation library? Ask

Saved by uncleflo on June 23rd, 2017.

I'm looking for a library that would allow me to synchronize text in real-time between multiple users (ala Google Docs). I've stumbled upon Operational Transformation, which seems to fit my needs. Having said that, I understand the gist of OT, but not the math nor implementation of OT. Thus, I was wondering if there was a drag'n'drop Javascript library that would hook into a text area, generate the transforms, then allow me to apply those transformations onto another client? (I've gotten the Etherpad source, but I can't make head or tails out of it. If anyone could point out how to leverage on Etherpad's OT implementation, that'll be great too!)
