    So I've been thinking a bit about social swarm theory lately, and this week I've been focusing on Twitter.

    There's a site that can automatically post a list of people that unfollow you.

    It's automated passive-aggressiveness.

    I watched a man's standing on Reddit crumble in less than 24 hours because he was a bit of a jerk to a person who posted something against the rules in his subreddit.

    His account is still taking downvotes.

    The Vatican museums are certainly worth a visit if in Rome, but I must admit to being creeped the hell out by the Raphael Rooms, for the frescos (and other works of art) celebrating the triumph of Christian theology over Pagan philosophy.

    Are there works dedicated to the Christian humanists who proved the Donation of Constantine was a load of bullshit?

    Oh I am sure. Somewhere in the back, I bet they've made a really tasteful display and all

    Non-Christians get a subconscious thrill when they steal Christ from the Christians.

    You know if you skip the part about the birth of Jesus at the begining of Matthew (which the Ebionites did, btw) you can get through all of Mark and Matthew without Jesus himself being divine.

    Basically, outside of the Virgin Birth episode, Jesus is basically a prophet/mystic through most of Matthew and Mark. Luke and John are when the Jesus=the Word=God thing starts going full throttle.

    There's 2^32 IPv4 addresses. They've all been allocated. They're not all used, but they're allocated.

    2^32 = 4,294,967,296, which isn't that much, really - 4.29 billion addresses.

    IPv6 is the replacement protocol. It has 2^128 addresses.

    I think that's a number with about 38 zeroes in it.

    There is a 32-bit IP (IPv4) protocol and a 128-bit (IPv6) protocol.

    We're just running out of IPv4 addresses.

    Echo beat me, but its ok because his rainbow sheep are hypnotic.

    I am completely serious. English tranlsations often put a certain spin on things but you can take both Mark and Matthew (again, minus the first two chapters) literally and still think Jesus is just a devout Jew who is particuarly favored by YHWH. Even the term which would later (via German) become "Messiah" just means "annointed one" and in practice is used to refer to anyone who god particularly likes at the moment. Even non-jews (the Persian emperor who conquers babylon for example).

    We are completely out of IPv4 address.


    There will never ever be another new address in the 192.168.100.1 or whatever schema. 99.125.78.13. 66.173.132.42. Etc etc etc. This only affects PUBLIC IPs, obviously. Anyone can have whatever they want for private IPs.

    Do you work at an ISP or something? You're IT team should have really started implementing steps to be IPv6 compliant months ago.


    IPv6 addresses look like this:


    2001:0db8:85a3:0000:0000:8a2e:0370:7334

    or

    2001:0db8:85a3:::8a2e:0370:7334

    He was obsessed with his beard. Dude wrote an entire book (a satire IIRC) against people who dissed beards.

    I'm pretty sure, wait now that I think about it, Basil II also sported one but that was mainly to kowtow to the Bulgarians he kicked the shit out of.

    But I can't really think of one of note in the 700 years inbetween that didn't follow the Constantine/Justinian clean shaven look.

    Jews gave the Persian emperor an AAA rating when it comes to their despots, mainly because of the whole allowing their religion thing.
