Coinbase is fucking killing it. Wish I had worn a tie instead of a sweatshirt to that customer service job interview ....

fwiw I immediately understood what I was looking at and proceeded to get hooked on that game :)

a popover or floating arrow or something might be a decent way to solve some people not getting it.

A poor attempt at humor?

I flagged it. With a bit of luck it'll be gone soon.

It's a 12 column (col) grid, so a 'col-lg-6' takes up half of the page. 'col-offset-3' adds a 3 column margin on the left, effectively centering the element.

That's what I always thought about tor as well, but today I downloaded and have been using this - and it was/is as simple as installing and using any other browser:

I'm probably still missing a few layers of security if I want to order a pound of purple kush or a hitman or something though (right?)

I ran into the problem of a big memory footprint and the tor browser running really slow (on my quite fast laptop with i7, ssd and 16 gb mem)

When I was living in China, I used Tor daily to circumvent the great firewall. Back when the Tor bundle was using Firefox < 15, it has some bad memory leaks, but Mozilla has done a great job of fixing those. Chrome has turned into the memory hog. Chrome 2x memory usage has gotten so bad, I’m actually thinking about finding an old full install of a 0x or 1x for my laptop.

As far as it being slow to load sites, there will always be a high latency when using Tor. It’s the nature of onion routing. If Tor becomes more popular, I’m hoping there will be a way to donate to high bandwidth exit nodes to keep the network performance up.

My experience is probably not typical (I move around a lot and rarely go to the same Starbucks more than a few times) but I'm only about 70% sure that any given Starbucks will have a connection at all. So I only go in if it's really convenient or I have no other options. That's to say nothing of the speed or reliability - both of which are typically mediocre to terrible.

If I knew with certainty that every Starbucks had a fast and reliable connection, I'd probably patronize them 50-100% more than I currently do. Hell, I'd be on my way out of this hotel in search of a Starbucks right now if I knew that!

Pretty sure he just means documents that you have stored on dropbox.

^^that's Marc Andreessen FYI, those of you downvoting him.

So? If his argument for why this is good is that it's "killer" and from "legendary engineers" then he deserves it.

It is always easy to shit on someone else's product. But it's still a net benefit, in a pile of shit they may find a gold nugget of a comment or a suggestion.

No rep needed if all they want is coverage. If they want to craft the message, they still need PR. The job just changes from selling the story to getting the right people to cover it in the right way.

That's why Apple still takes PR very seriously even though the media are going to cover all of their product launches anyway.

I think he meant "No rep needed [to get NYTimes to publish to their schedule]", not an overall piece of business advice

According to https://quip.com/about/ he seems like an underachiever on the Quip team.

>>Ryan's resume intimidates small children and household pets. After co-founding Google App Engine with Kevin, Jon, and Bret, Ryan boarded his hot air balloon and ascended to low earth orbit. He then won a Nobel peace prize, seven Olympic medals (all bronze), three Oscars, and the jackpot at Caesar's Palace. Since landing, he's cured cancer, penned the sequel to Ulysses, and achieved nirvana. That was on Tuesday.

They've evidently already raised $15 million as well. This should be really interesting.

Should add self-inflicted boners to the list...

All of it except the app engine part. Come on this is so obvious, and i am not even a native speaker.

"cured cancer" should be a dead giveaway that the list isn't real.

-----


and isn't funny.
