How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

YoungManKlaus Re:"constantly monitor energy" (284 comments)

PS: and also obviously there are self-winding mechanical clocks which work by converting the movement of your hand into energy -> never ever need to wind those.

How Apple Watch Is Really a Regression In Watchmaking

YoungManKlaus "constantly monitor energy" (284 comments)

this is actually also wrong for mechanical watches, as they take a constant amount of energy. So no matter how many times you look at the watch and do other things, you can be sure you don't have to rewind outside of your usual schedule (which is normally once in the morning, and takes no 30 seconds, and you don't even have to take off the device). So Apple's Watch is even a step back from mechanical watches.

Debian's Systemd Adoption Inspires Threat of Fork

YoungManKlaus Re:Honestly, I prefer the one on the left (555 comments)

and you totally didn't ever have to read any man-pages to get what the bash script does ... jeah right ... on the premise of having to learn what both scripts do starting from zero, I am pretty sure the systemd version would win by a huge margin. Its just people being lazy and pissed off that they have to actually educate themselves about new stuff.

YoungManKlaus Surprise, Surprise (226 comments)

Lead developer of a product that competes with another product says: "mine is better". The only newsworthy thing would have been if he would have said the opposite.

Ask Slashdot: Best Books On the Life and Work of Nikola Tesla?

YoungManKlaus why read about tesla? (140 comments)

read about and _understand_ his work!
a) its the awesome part anyhow
b) considering his seemingly unending love for advances science, it would be only logical to conclude he would prefer people learning about his work than about "himself" (as in: cheap talk).

Why the Trolls Will Always Win

YoungManKlaus threats are not trolling (728 comments)

Real trolling requires witt and while infuriating the target should cause generally great laugther (eg. by seemingly playing along and letting the target run into a self-built wall). Threats are just a hate crime and should be procesuted.

YoungManKlaus overrated (304 comments)

I prefer my cherries: g80 with blues at home, mx board 3.0 with browns (because I dont want to drive my coworkers mad) at work. Esp. if you compare price/value.

Living On a Carbon Budget: The End of Recreation As We Know It?

YoungManKlaus Depends on your definition of Recreation... (652 comments)

If recreation for you is driving a gas guzzler cross-country while "turning on both heating and air conditioning", then yes. On the other hand, for most people recreation involves relaxing activities which have somewhere between a low or even negative carbon footprint (like gardening).

Is the Tesla Model 3 Actually Going To Cost $50,000?

YoungManKlaus Re:Still pretty affordable (393 comments)

I think in California you have enough sun to put a solar charger up. After all thats when electric cars really start to pay, when you dont have to use grid power but can generate your own.
