Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo

The problem there isn't the lack of showers but the repeated use of clothing.

Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo

yendor Does shower mean soap? (250 comments)

I ask myself if the showers that kill the flora is just water or use soap.
Shampoo is something I long ago stopped using and after a short period I stopped producing excessive amounts of oil. The only times I have to shampoo is when because of a skin condition.

Using soap in general isn't something I feel is needed since a regular rinsing leaves me non smelly.

Question is if I am actually breeding these little microbes and my lack of soaping is why I don't smell or if it's simply because I'm not a smelly person as some of my friends and family asserts?

Ask Slashdot: Do You Run a Copy-Cat Installation At Home?

yendor Next job? (308 comments)

I learn things in my free time in order to beef up my skills for the next employer since the only way you can get a raise is to change jobs.
Anyone notice you only ever get more responsibility but never more renumeration to go with all that extra work?

Another Elon Musk Bet: Half of All Cars Built In 2032 Will Be Electric

yendor Where are the bigger electric cars. (359 comments)

I can't see how this will work when not a single electric car is aimed at families.
Living in London I am repeatedly told I should be driving a "green" car instead of my big Renault Espace diesel. The complaint I normally get is that diesel is dirty but as far as I can find while that is true for old diesels without modern filters (+10 years old) it isn't the case with the modern diesels.
Also I almost never drive anywhere with less than 6 people in the car and walk whenever the distance is within a mile and there is nothing bulky to transport.

I have done extensive research into available electric cars but they simply aren't big enough to fit more than 3 children or 4 in a pinch when they have grown out of the legally mandated child seats.

Until we see 6 and 7 seater electrics I don't see it as being anything other than a DINK statement to show off the "green credentials".

Hippies Say WiFi Network Is Harming Their Chakras

yendor Re:Receptionist (432 comments)

The Electrically sensitive people have been known to suffer for persecution from people who have the audacity to expect them to have consistent symptoms along with some verifiable reactions to fields.
Mostly the poor persecuted sufferers have been able to sense fields with less than 50% accuracy, less than the test group that simply guessed.

Singapore Firm Claims Patent Breach By Virtually All Websites

yendor Re:prior art irrelevant... (481 comments)

HTML 1.0 was never a standard but going with HTML 2.0 specifications puts prior art as early as 1995.
I remember building a webpage in 1996 with a line of tiny clickable images at the top so I guess I have some prior art with timestamps available if needed.

The damages have been set to the record ammount of 30 Million SEK to be divided fairly almong the 4 defendants. There is no doubt to anyone that this will be appealed. Most experts expect this to be going thru appeals for several years more. " It has been made possible for computerusers on the Piratebay site to partake in copyrighted material. For this purpose the defendants have made crime possible by developing search functionality" said the spokesperson for the courts Tomas Norström on the press gathering that is ongoing in the Stockholm courts More details are coming and the piratebay will be holding a press conference at 15.00 CET http://thepiratebay.org/blog/150"
