To be fair, upstart doesn't have anywhere near the level of "kitchen sink" insanity that is systemd.

SiChemist Re:unfiltered information will make people THINK! (1037 comments)

TVTropes is a harsh and unforgiving god. It will steal your life in 2hr increments as it sends you willy-nilly through the bends and turns of culture (both pop and high).

WSJ: Americans' Phone Bills Are Going Up

SiChemist AIO wireless (273 comments)

I switched from Verizon (~$80/month including a company discount) to AIO wireless at $45/month. That $45 gets me unlimited minutes and texts and 2.5GB of "high speed" data (4Mb/s on HSPA, 8Mb/s on LTE) and unlimited data at 256Kb/s after the 2.5GB limit has been exceeded. No contract. It uses AT&T towers, so I have great coverage. I am very happy with the service.

The Fascinating Science Behind Beer Foam

SiChemist Re:I make beer... (73 comments)

If you follow the link, you can see how tapping the sides works. It's not waiting that prevents the overflow, it's releasing the bubbles that form on the inside surfaces of the can so they don't carry liquid up when the container is opened.

You have to tap the sides. Tapping the top doesn't help much.
