Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    ICQ still exists?

    well the network still works. I haven't used their actual client for like 10 years (yay trillian).

    What you think "makes sense" has nothing to do with reality. It just has to do with your life experience. And your life experience may only be a small smidgen of reality. Possibly even a distorted account of reality at that. So what this means is that, beginning in the 20th century as our means of decoding nature became more and more powerful, we started realizing our common sense is no longer a tool to pass judgment on whether or not a scientific theory is correct. - Neil Degrasse Tyson

    Does the forged document say anything substantially different from the real documents?

    No. It's pretty much a summary of the others, as far as the facts it states goes. But who's going to care? It was forged! The alarmists are FRAUDS!!!!11!!

    hahaah "Fake but accurate" defense, go!

    It's not a defense of the action, but an assessment of how the forgery affects any conclusions about either Heartland or AGW, which is to say, not at all.

    Most people who would have believed the forgery will believe what the forgery says regardless of what the rest of the documents contain. So, I guess you're right that it's not going to change a lot of minds. That's pretty fair, because a forged document shouldn't change any minds about anything.

    The problem is the "fake but accurate" angle, where people say that yes the document was forged, but everything in it is true. At that point it's Rathergate all over again.

    I don't even remember my ICQ number. :/

    8675309 maybe

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    what's Eigenvector mean, for us dumb common folks?

    If you take any square matrix (eg: a grid of numbers) and follow a certain series of steps you end up with a vector of the same dimension. EG: a 3x3 matrix turns into a 3 vector. If you followed the steps correctly that vector is the "eigenvector" (german for "characteristic vector") for that matrix.

    That's all really.

    Things get spooky when you realize how many weird applications there are for the eigenvector. All over the place in maths, physics, image processing, cryptography etc...

    edit: oh and 3d graphics. All 3d graphics in a computer is really just matrix math. And eigenvectors turn up all over the place.

    when i was like 17 i met a girl in a bar and she gave me her ICQ number instead of her phone number

    i thought it was a fake phone number because it was like, the wrong number of digits and she's like "no, no, it's my ICQ number, do you have ICQ?"

    i didn't bother

    I used ICQ when I was 13 and met a man who was into BDSM and was telling me about it.

    Haven't used it since.

    You know if you express 8675309 as a matrix and then find the eigenvector, it points directly at your mom.

    If that was 1998ish or prior that would have been pretty cool.

    Yeah, I spent an enormous amount of time on IRC in my teens. I tried going back onto the IRC channels a few years ago but it just wasn't the same.
