Decades-old Scientific Paper May Hold Clues To Dark Matter

Aardpig Re:"Leftover" high energy electrons (93 comments)

Just like you say -- the electrons were in a storage vessel, left over from another experiment. Except, the vessel was probably a storage ring -- kind of like a particle accelerator, but without the stuff to boost particles to higher speeds.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Aardpig Re:Zoe Quinn is a self-confessed rapist (1134 comments)

"Views on the ethics of infidelity. Which she maintained is inherently wrong even if the person who was cheated on never finds out, because (aside from willfully endangering their partner by way of increased STD risk) if the unfaithful party then has sex with their partner, they are doing so under false pretenses, and therefore without their partner’s consent. That is, sex with a partner who doesn’t know you’ve cheated on them is sex without consent."

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Aardpig Re:Zoe Quinn, wait what? (1134 comments)

Zoe has, by her own confession, committed rape. In the SJW handbook, that's doubleplusungood. Hence the strong reaction from the community.

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Aardpig Re:Again?! (1134 comments)

Are we talking about the same Zoe Quinn? The Zoe Quinn who shut down a gamejam specifically targetted at helping women coders, because she perceived it as in competition with her own fundraising efforts?

Combating Recent, Ugly Incidents of Misogyny In Gamer Culture

Aardpig Zoe Quinn is a self-confessed rapist (1134 comments)

Having agreed with her boyfriend that part of informed consent requires sexual fidelity, she proceeded to sleep around. When she subsequently fucked her boyfriend it was therefore without his informed consent, and thus -- by modern SJW standards -- rape.

Zoe Quinn is a rapist. There is no way around this.

New Raspberry Pi Model B+

Aardpig More power to the USB ports? (202 comments)

The addition of 2 extra USB ports is useless, unless they have changed the polyfuse set up to allow more power to be delivered to the ports. As things currently stand with the original model B, attaching anything more than a low-power keyboard to the Pi requires a powered hub -- the Pi itself can't deliver the required juice. It would be great if this restriction were lifted.
