I've been a christian for a very long time, finding myself sliding away, just don't find the solace in it anymore? Any thoughts? I still find myself attracted to the ideas - grace, forgiveness, love, a relationship with god, just so attractive - but just can't seem to make the bridge from it to the daily grind.

This thread is getting old but for now:

Did anyone teach you the more advanced parts?

I've updated my profile to link to a site that I feel includes useful material (and yes, I am part of that bunch in a way.)

I might get around to adding some kind of contact details for myself, but for now I wont.

-----


I'm not looking to be converted, but I'm going to check your link anyway. If there's some thing that can be called "advanced Christianity", then it's my (other) religious duty to check it out :)

-----


Thanks! I'll check it out.

I believe VW have promised to replace everyones entire engines. I'm stupefied over how much this will cost, i've seen numbers around to 100B mark. Their market cap is somewhere near half of that. Presumably they think it's better than the brand damage otherwise. I think it's fair to assume they'll go bankrupt over this.

-----


Do you have a link for this? Replacing even 500k engines in the US is indeed stupefying.

-----


I seriously doubt Germany would let VW go bankrupt, the government owns twenty percent of the company and they are too big too fail.

The direct injection makes the petrol engine sound like a clunky diesel. It's pretty crummy. Combined with the wooden electric power steering and they're really boring cars to drive. Not to mention the gripless run-flat tyres. I used to own one - never again, all they've got going for them is the admittedly lovely styling.

I can't imagine tim cook losing any sleep over this. Most users unlock their phones via touch ID (fingerprint) these days.

-----


Still shows "slide to unlock". Which you can do and enter pin instead of using fingers (or tongue if you were bored like me).

Also there's still iPhone 5C(heap) phones in production which don't have fingerprint reader.

You can take it to the apple store to get the battery replaced FWIW

Just say 'I recommend we use this database from a bunch of ex-Googlers'.

Rust could be a great platform to build a new mobile OS on. Non-garbage collected so it'd be fast and efficient on low-memory ARM devices. Just like Obj-C really gave iOS a headstart on java-based Android. Doubly-so if they want to continue to target the low-spec end of the market.

Could they get the same effect by giving villagers cast iron cookware?

-----


I read this story a few months ago, it had a few more details then.

They tried giving them iron cookware, but they didn't like the weight. They then tried putting a random piece of iron in with their cooking, but not many kept up with doing it. That's where the idea to shape the iron like a lucky fish came from, and it seems to be working.

-----


It's more efficient (cost-wise) to give the smallest quantity of iron that releases it. And it can be used in pots of different sizes

-----


Probably but that'd be more expensive.

1 HTML page (of course), 1 JS file (discounting analytics), 2 CSS, and some assets. As it should be! So many sites overdo it with frameworks. Good to see MS improving these days.

-----


Reading through the code, it's extremely tidy. Very confidence inspiring :)
