After 35 Years, Another Message Sent From Arecibo

sw155kn1f3 iPhone? (249 comments)

Please stop this shit. Oh come on, we're geeks, not some pointy-haired boss puppets. No iPhone, iMac or other "trendy" stuff. We're just geeks who can understand the stuff without extra explaining in layman terms. No advertising, no patronising, no other dumbing. Just please.

Fatty Foods Affect Memory and Exercise Performance

sw155kn1f3 Re:Well.. Article is right, kind of.. (379 comments)

So how does that contradicts my assertion that carbs+fat = insulin spike? What it says is that fat+protein = less insulin spike. What a surprise.
You're saying that mixing sugars with fat makes less insulin spike which is simply complete bullshit. Try eating at mcdonalds or pizzas/whatever for a while, perfect carbs+fat content, and tell me how you will feel after a month of such a diet. The article shows this perfectly.

Well, fire your trainer, require money back, and get a life.

Baloney, you didn't read a single ref on that page, right?
If this were true, then one could eat french fries, pizza and cakes all day and stay slim.

Bodybuilders eat slow carbs + protein to have an energy for workout and spare muscle.

Not sure where you get all your strange ideas from.

Fatty Foods Affect Memory and Exercise Performance

Cheers, man. Although dogs are carnovores and human and rats are omnivores.
I think that readily available fat + sugars sources in one package almost never existed for our ancestors.
Women gathered carbs (berries, roots etc) and men gone hunting to bring back the meat, resources was scarce so carbs/fat/protein were cycled all the time with meals several times a day.
So from evolutionary standpoint they never encouter "fries" or "pizza" equivalent.

>> Holt et al. have noted that the glucose and insulin scores of most foods are highly correlated, but high-protein foods and bakery products that are rich in fat and refined carbohydrates "elicit insulin responses that were disproportionately higher than their glycemic responses."

also there are links to original paper and layman-term article at the end of the wikipedia entry

Fatty Foods Affect Memory and Exercise Performance

sw155kn1f3 Re:what fats? (379 comments)

Has nothing to do really with the type of fat, please red this comment: http://science.slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=1338085&cid=29089785
Basically if you mix fat with carbs you have really bad insulin spikes. This is what diets like low-fat or Atkin's are trying to prevent. Both of approaches are right. And yes, you actually can mix 2 of the worlds.

sw155kn1f3 Well.. Article is right, kind of.. (379 comments)

It's very surprising that these scientists don't read basic articles in their field.
Anyone who read at least one article at this topic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insulin_index knows that eating 50% fat, 50% carbohydrates will make your insulin spike like hell, much worse than just eating all that fat and carbs but separately separated by 2-3 hours.
Insulin spike will cause direct hit on your glucose levels to the point of hypoglycemia, hence the fatigue and slow brain + longterm increased body fat. As a result you're hungry very fast and still have no energy.
Just eat them separately.
Or take more powerful approach with carb cycle diet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carb_cycling
It works. I feel great all the time. Was not the case on Atkin's or any other food plan I ever been on (was obese since childhood, now not).

Tetris Turns 25

sw155kn1f3 Tetris predcessor: pentamino (177 comments)

Not sure if this game was any popular in US or Europe, but it was quite popular in USSR circa 80s (for small kids of course). I had the game and very much enjoyed it.
I still have it at my mother's.

Here's the link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pentomino

So it's not very hard to guess where the guy got idea from. Of course this takes a lot of luck and genius to turn into addictive game ;)

Canonical Demos Early Stage Android-On-Ubuntu

sw155kn1f3 Re:important lesson (165 comments)

They do have a good web browser, it's called IE mobile and it worked long before opera mini (you don't even have the name correctly, keep trolling pal) became available, opera mini released in 2006. Before that all mobile browsers besides IE mobile sucked donkey balls. And yes, IE mobile is a good mobile web browser working out of the box.
Yes, this is just you. I personally find WM UI to be very easy to understand and use. I yet to see anything that surpasses WM address book and Outlook synchronization.
My first WM smartphone (Moto MPX200) didnt have any hard reset in 2 years before WM2003 became available for it - then I had to hard reset to upgrade firmaware. You're making things up again.
About appstore. Well. Handago existed for years, if you don't know about it, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. Also WM is very open in terms of software installation, API and overall development. Noone forces you to use any appstore - install whatever you want.

Huh, dear troll, care to elaborate how WM is broken out of the box?
Had 2 WM smartphones in the past (WM2002, WM6) and nowhere near I find them broken, although did hard reset a few times and using vanilla WM for a while.
