  1. Past hour
  2. Im sure he feels absolutely terrible for what happened, but please dont be jumping out at people. If someone is jumping at me im expecting to get jumped/ robbed.
  3. Every waffle house ive ever been to has only had like 2 people working there the “waitress” and a “cook” and the cook is usually a felon thats on parol.
  4. aaaah. Yea, that one did look a little rough.
  5. @sc302is referring to the video Doc posted in the OP. That was the pad abort test from 2015. That test is indeed a far more violent experience and would be quite uncomfortable for the occupants, especially since there would be little to no warning that it was going to happen. The large amount of thrashing the capsule does is due to that fact that it is still very much in the atmosphere and can't use its thrusters to stabilize. The idea here though is living is better than not living when trying to escape an explosion on the pad. The In-Flight abort test from Sunday is a much smoother experience. The occupants are already experiencing a lot of acceleration so when the escape system activates it is just a bit more in the same direction. They will certainly feel it but will already be braced since they were already in flight. Some data was reveled at the press conference showing forces never exceeded 3.5g throughout the test with the NASA director even commenting that it was "impressive" to achieve that low of a number in a launch escape. The Soyuz capsule will reach over 6g during its escape which saved two lives in 2018 as Jim points out.
  6. I'm sure you're right and their market research is wrong.

    Give it back, it's incriminating to take trophies!
  8. Yea...the data will provide the answers. Forgot the astronauts name...Hague I think...described the Soyuz abort (in '18) like a roller coaster and being tossed around. I personally (as a certified armchair astronaut) didn't really see anything unusual/alarming.
  9. Wouldn't it work better if it was called a "just before you're killed switch"?
  10. If Google turns out to have the best AI, will he later change his mind to stifle competition. Once you're in the technical lead, management thinking can change.
  11. And I kind of question the survival of the occupant returning to normal quality of life or being incapacitated on some front by being jostled around like that. Just because your head has padding, doesn't mean your brain does. Brain getting slammed against your own skull isn't exactly good and why concussions are taken very seriously. Could this lead to more than a concussion? It would be interesting to see the data or explanation of the abrupt tilting/jostling to know that it is within "normal" limits. Hard to tell gforces from here.
  12. Today
  13. They purposely induce a slow opening of the chutes to minimize forces exerted on the chutes and capsule. The speed and duration of the free fall won't harm anything, but the forces during decel can. Slow and controlled is key.
  14. Don't feel bad, I always think I see the Microsoft CEO whenever Google talks about stadia
  15. It had two "passengers" all wired up so they'll know how much force was exerted on "them". Obviously it is more about survivability than comfort.
  16. That's actually not as bad as I thought considering it supposed to replace the washer and dryer. I just paid $800 for a washer. Yea, I originally "LMAO" but after thinking about it ... it might not be bad for some people (mostly those that wear suits or have expensive clothing). Might end up saving people in dry cleaning costs, convenience, etc. It isn't a product geared for the likes of me ... but I can see how it might benefit others. Not sure about some of the comments with respect to spilling food/drinks on their clothing. I don't really have that problem...not that I haven't...but it really isn't a frequent occurrence.
  17. Microsoft unveils new Applied Cloud Stories initiative by Hamza Jawad Last month, Microsoft partnered up with NTT to develop reliable solutions through Azure. The firm also introduced a new bursting capability for Azure Disks, only a few days after announcing Azure Spot Virtual Machines in preview. In its latest cloud-centric move, the tech giant has unveiled its new Applied Cloud Stories initiative. This is essentially a competition that invites participants to share technical content regarding an interesting experience with Microsoft's cloud platform. The "story" can be both in the form of an article or a video, and should revolve around a topic in one of the following categories: Open Source Applications DevOps + Infrastructure Big Data + Distributed Systems Machine Learning + Data Science Research Once submitted through the official website for Applied Cloud Stories, the content will be reviewed by a committee that consists of Azure engineers, industry leaders, and more. A limited number of featured stories will be voted upon by each member of this committee, along with one stand-out performer of their choice from each category. The prizes for those who win will include the title of Recognized Community Contributor, custom art from Ashley McNamara, Director of Open Source Initiatives at Microsoft, and more. The Azure engineering team will also provide them with an opportunity to have a discussion with them relating to the cloud. Notably, the content does not necessarily have to be about Azure, but at least one part of the platform should be used to run scenario workloads on. As Microsoft puts it, "We are more interested to hear about people’s scenarios and technology choices first." Those who are interested can share their stories before March 15 through the Applied Cloud Stories website.
  18. how often do you spill stuff on yourself??? i mean it is a issue. i think i have only stains once in a month or something, most of the issues (sweat smell) can be solved by this machine.
  19. This is stupid; if you don't remove the 'food' (grime from you, or other sources), bacteria will just keep coming back, and you'll end up with very brown clothes that'll need washing anyway. So sure, it's 'freshenizer' but otherwise completely useless. It'd be good in space, perhaps, where they don't have a washing machine
  20. too rich for me, but i hope the prices on such tech will come down i am also interested in the SteamWashers but for some reason they seem to be discontinued in my country. I really don't see the need to fully wash most cloths just for a refresher, as it is what kills my clothes (as I never usually wear anything twice before i want it fresh again - so all my t-shirts lose the looks fast from constant washing) but this would have been totally sufficient.
  21. That's actually not as bad as I thought considering it supposed to replace the washer and dryer. I just paid $800 for a washer. That's a mental price for a washing machine. It has a steamer and a wifi app. It was actually for my sister. Way to big for me.

  23. That thing looked like it dropped quite a bit before the chutes filled up fully with air, and the capsule was very violent, 30-~50sec mark in the post 1 video flipping on its head and back, until the chutes started to get air in them. That doesn't look very good for the passengers.
