There are green spiky cells that split you into about 10 cells if you are large and touch them. I've seen players fall off of the leaderboard due to accidentally touching them.

Ah I didn't realize they split you if you're large. Still though, my primary annoyance is large cells that just don't move anywhere.

If you get big enough that you are subdivided and your subdivided cells are significantly bigger than the spiky circles, you can eat them!

Does Delve only allow you set breakpoints while running the program in Delve?

Yes: https://github.com/derekparker/delve#breakpoints

I'm assuming you are still losing power. Some power is taken out via the USB and put back into the computer, and some is use to power the device like normal. Since the power put back into the computer is not larger than the power being taken out, there is still a net loss in power over time.

-----


Normally I wouldn't comment on a shitpost, however...

Not only is there power drain, but the device will think it's plugged in and actively disable power-saving features (someone correct me if I'm wrong).

-----


The problem is not to do with the 'power put back' being 'larger', it's to do with efficiency. If charging and discharging a battery were 100% efficient and there were no losses to heat through the rest of the system, then there'd be no discharging, but, yes, due to the laws of the universe, this will always cause a net loss.

-----


But if it is 100% efficient, the computer would still be using power to run.

-----


if nothing else there is the led on the charger. (but of course there are other things like heat generated by charging, I would assume)

> someone live streaming an instance of police brutality

Hasn't that been done for many instances already? People have been live streaming from Ferguson, Egypt, etc.

-----


These new apps are bringing a much more streamlined, accessible method for anyone with a smartphone. People in Ferguson or Egypt likely had a more complex set-up or were posting pre-recorded footage.

-----


Maybe only more complex in that they cost $ to livestream, but I could sit in front of my Roku and watch multiple live streams of Ferguson protests on UStream.

Why are you flagging this? Flagging is for topics that are "spam or offtopic."

-----


Is it on topic?

-----


Somebody wrote a new language/turing machine based off of pop culture, I'd say that's pretty on-top for HackerNews.

So, by your point of view, I should be able to submit the "Moo!" or "Ook!" esoteric languages which are exactly like this one?

I find Groot to be entirely uninteresting. Look up Homespring or Flip :)

Yes, and they'd be on-topic. Though Zombie [0], from the same creator as Ook!, is probably more interesting.

As far as I know, only /r/Games (the main gaming discussion subreddit) bans Gamergate. Reddit itself does not ban it.

And a link to volume one, if you missed it: https://leanpub.com/readevalprintlove001/read

Haven't they done something like this before? I remember Yahoo promoting a Yahoo-branded Firefox. It's default search and homepage were Yahoo, and every titlebar had "Firefox and Yahoo" at the end instead of just "Firefox."

-----


Yeah, there was an experimental Firefox + Yahoo distro, for download on Yahoo's servers. There was also a Firefox + Bing distro, iirc.

Todd was using the default front page, which consists of these subreddits: http://www.reddit.com/r/defaults/comments/24zz8z/list_of_def...

What do you mean? The website works for me, and links to the iOS app store.

-----


Attempting to install from the app store pushes an error saying it's no longer available.
