    @johngordon I’ve not noticed anything with Spotlight on either my iPad or iPhone. Use it all the time.

      This is a cyclic fad - not to knock physicists mind you but the press appeal of them in other industries. → Move over, coders—physicists will soon rule Silicon Valley http://bit.ly/2jvg5PQ

        Supposedly new pain killers coming down the line without effects of opioids. We’ll see. Last batch of new pain killers had unexpected side effects.

              @jws What’s weird is that this is a relatively recent thing. Wasn’t true in 70’s and early 80’s (when women really were still coming into the academy in numbers) Culture largely created in 90’s.

                @johngordon @joanna @doctorlinguist always a crap shoot whether your hard drive would boot with SCSI.

                  @johngordon @tomcat @jws @duerig My parents had a subscription for a while. For some things like wood stoves and certain other items it was about the only way to find them pre-internet.

                    @joanna @jws @johngordon @tomcat @duerig I had a blast coming up with Lynch interpretations on alt.tv.twin-peaks. Lots of fun on the various Mac ones too. Google Groups has most of the old ones from the 90’s and 80’s.

                      @johngordon @tomcat @jws @duerig Secret shame - did some phone freaking back in the 80’s as a young teen. Subscribed to 2600 back in the day.

                        @jws @johngordon @tomcat @duerig USENET. Have posts from pre-ethernet internet days when learning C on an old Vax running Unix.

                          @johngordon @martinsteiger Surprised how quickly muscle is coming back, although I strained my serratus the other day doing too much wight. Just losing the weight I’ve built up the past few years on the incline treadmill and stair climber.

                            @johngordon @tomcat @jws @duerig Wow, the Well? That’s like pre-AOL internet isn’t it?

                              @tomcat @jws @johngordon @duerig Nope. Never even been there. Liked Ars because it tends to be an insightful pretty tech savvy group.

                                @tomcat @jws @johngordon @duerig I post regularly at Ars where I’ve been a user since around ’98 or so. (I created a new account after a few years after deciding I didn’t like anonymous accounts due to how people abuse them)

                                  @tomcat @jws @johngordon @duerig Yeah, I hate anonymous users so I use my full name everywhere.

                                    @johngordon @jws @duerig I think you follow my tech blog and possibly my philosophy blog (which I’ve not posted to since I joined that group blog)

                                      @tomcat @jws @johngordon @duerig Go for it — add away although that religious group one I don’t think anyone would find interesting. Narrow topic range - LDS and Utah stuff. Tech one is the one you should link although I don’t post to it much.

                                        @jws @johngordon @duerig When ADN dies I suspect I’ll start doing more there. Even the Ars forums aren’t what they once were. I recently got added to a group blog but that’s more an academic/social/religious blog with a mix of liberals and conservatives.
