Openstreetmap.org: How to tag fireplace?
On several places there is fireplace in forest or just outside the naturel reserve where (and only where) the fire is permitted. However it is not possible to sleep there and there is no other equipment. How to tag this? Is it camping_site? Picnic site? There are no beneches, nothing. It would be great if there is a fireplace icon for such places, it would encourage using them instead setting up fire where not allowed.

Theverge.com: Sandbox of frustration: Apple's walled garden closes in on Mac developers
Apple's OS X Mountain Lion launched on Wednesday, and with it came a new set of rules laid out by Apple that restrict what Mac developers can do with their apps. To sum it up, developers must "sandbox" their apps in order to take full advantage of new features like iCloud and Notification Center, limiting access to system data much like iOS apps. Sandboxed apps are much easier for Apple to verify, check, and approve for the Mac App store, since they are inherently self-contained, but this poses a big problem: sandboxing your app sometimes means that features that dig deep into OS X must be removed. Developers lashed out at Apple for its new rules when Mountain Lion was announced back in February, in part because of how much effort might go into re-architecting their apps. Tech pundit Andy Ihnatko wrote, "Time, money, and resources that developers could be investing in making a great product even better must instead be spent just to keep their software working."

ZEVO ZFS over Thunderbolt on a Mac
After years of threatening, I finally set up a ZFS pool in a Mac OS X (10.8.5) environment. Today, I downloaded ZEVO Community Edition, which is (self)-described as “a momentous, much needed and long-overdue improvement over Apple’s status quo file system (HFS+) that was designed in the mid 1980s — before the Internet existed!” I totally agree. HFS+ is a turd, allowing “bit-rot” to silently corrupt your data over time. I am a working photographer with many terabytes of data that I need to store securely. Although I keep many copies of the data (and versioned copies of important stuff), I have, on occasion, gone back to old pictures only to find them to be corrupted. This scares me. Luckily, ZFS is a file system that has been designed not to allow silent corruption. If you want to know more about ZFS, read its Wikipedia entry.

Anandtech.com: EIZO Announces the IPS 26.5” FlexScan EV2730Q Monitor with 1920x1920 Resolution
I will be honest, the nearest I think I have come to a square monitor is the 1024x768 panel I use as a tiny second screen on my main computer. When I first saw EIZO’s press release regarding this new 1920x1920 monitor it took me aback, imagining what it might feel like to actually use. The consumer monitor market is expanding to various screen sizes, usually following 16:9, 16:10 or 21:9 for the most part. But after a few minutes, I realized that non-standard monitor sizes are most likely abundant in various industries, such as medical, when they are designed for a specific purpose and quality. So while a 1:1 monitor is something interesting to see in the consumer space, perhaps it might not be so new when considering industrial use scenarios. That all being said, it would be interesting to see this one in the flesh.

The current state of commerce is one of centralized marketplaces and money services that extract high fees, impose and abuse excessive control and remove any hope of privacy from users. This is why we've created Bitmarkets. Using Bitmessage's decentralized messaging to post sales, Bitcoin to transfer value without credit cards or banks, and two party escrow transactions (which lock the payment and mutual security deposits so they can only be released with the consent of both parties) safe exchanges can be conducted without middle men.

Bike.se: Kawazaki Z 750
Enligt vår kawasakiexpert Tobbe på Svenska Motorcykelaktiebolaget »finns inga fel alls på dem« – som går att hänföra till själva konstruktionen. Det stämmer med det intryck som föraren får via reglage, motor och växellåda. Helheten känns mycket solid och välbyggd. Ändå slits förstås kedjan, däcken och bromsbeläggen, men en Z 750-ägare behöver inte oroa sig över plötsliga haverier. Kawasaki har ju haft lång tid på sig att förfina och förbättra motorn sedan den debuterade 1998 i ZX-9 R.

Benjamin Lowy — Iraq | Perspectives I
In July 2005, I was being driven from an assignment—an endeavor that took two cars and four heavily armed Iraqi guards—when my mother called. She asked me if I had the chance to go out with Iraqis, to wander through Baghdad. I told her that this scenario was near to impossible, if not dangerous for someone like me: tall, white, and bald. I explained that I couldn't go anywhere without armed protection; that Iraq was a land of blast walls and barbed wire fences. Her response was one of incredulousness. She had never seen any photographs or news reports illustrating what I described. I made my first image of a concrete blast wall through the window of my armored car that day.

Bit Rot on OS X - Myth or Reality?
Bit rot, in case you do not know, is a scary word which makes you lose all confidence in your storage. To make it simple, it means that there is a slight chance that your data might change over time, getting corrupted. This leads to all sort of issues, especially with data which is not accessed often and not easily replaceable, if at all. Imagine losing your old family photos, movies of your kids, or the private key of your Bitcoin wallet… [...] According to Wikipedia, in 2013, manufacturers claimed a non-recoverable error every 10^{16} bits read (which is 1.25 Peta-bytes, or 1,250 TB). This is small, but not so small to make it totally irrelevant, and it is only for enterprise-grade hardware. I do not know if manufacturers publish these figures for consumer-grade disks, but you can assume that they are sensibly worse.

Study shows marijuana’s long-term effects on the brain
"The results suggest increases in connectivity, both structural and functional that may be compensating for gray matter losses. Eventually, however, the structural connectivity or ‘wiring’ of the brain starts degrading with prolonged marijuana use.”
Tests reveal that earlier onset of regular marijuana use induces greater structural and functional connectivity. Greatest increases in connectivity appear as an individual begins using marijuana. Findings show severity of use is directly correlated to greater connectivity. [ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=8590992 ]

You either get it or you don’t
[...] there is a major issue with DNG: As far as I know, DNGs usually (i.e. by default) store the data as it came from the sensor. That means the application that reads the files needs to support the native format of the sensor pixel pattern. It is quite likely that some software vendors in the distant future will choose not to implement support for exotic historic sensors that do not use a conventional Bayer pattern (like Sigma’s Foveon, the rumored Fuji X-Trans and the like). While it is indeed possible to activate demosaicing in the conversion options inside the Adobe products, that will obviously no longer store the original sensor data and makes it impossible to benefit from improved future demosaicing algorithms unless you accept the storage overhead of embedding the original RAW file. Plus, most people don’t even know the demosaicing option is there, let alone what it does, and it will probably result in larger files as well since the red and blue channel hast to contain the additional interpolated values. Don’t get me wrong, DNG is great and I wish it was more universally supported, but it is quite dangerous in that it tricks people into thinking all DNG files are 100% future-proof without restrictions.

Wikipedia.org: Bat bomb
Ideally, the canister would be dropped from high altitude over the target area, and as the bomb fell (slowed by a parachute), the bats would warm up and awaken. At 1,000 ft. altitude, the bomb would open and over a thousand bats, each carrying a tiny time-delayed napalm incendiary device, would fly in a 20–40 mile radius and roost in flammable wooden Japanese buildings. The napalm devices would ignite simultaneously, and thousands of small fires would flare up at once.
