Leapdragon 2016 - Aron Hsiao Was Here

Calendricals.  §

I saw a YouTube video in which Hillary Clinton felt emotional on the stump and cried.

I do not ever, ever want to see Hillary Clinton cry.

Is that sexist? I don’t know. I just know that it was terribly, terribly wrong in oh-so-many ways.

I have been working on a kind of “universal cultural calendar” at work for reasons that are beyond going into here. It is a slog.

Sleepy convergences accumulating… For example, here are things that all happen at roughly the same time this year:

– Back-to-School season
– The height of US election campaign season
– The latest Bridget Jones film
– The remake of Ben-Hur
– Burning Man
– The Retail Global conference in Vegas
– Start of football season
– Major league baseball pennant race
– Apple’s fall event
– U.S. Labor Day
– Formula One in Belgium and Italy
– eBay Fall Seller Update

Woohoo?

DC current falloff is more-than-linear in relation to cable length. Does this also apply to conductor volume? I forget, but I doubt it.

Where did all my electronics knowledge go? I feel as though I’m intuiting this stuff.

Upshot: If you buy a nice, long six foot cable to charge your phone, it’s going to take a lot longer than it would with a three foot cable. And if you buy a twelve foot cable, it might just be charged by next week.
