    January NaNnd anyone?

    I was so sad at that weekend when the day that followed Friday the 6th was Sunday the 7th. I would have gone out for the weekend but without a saturday there just wasn't much time for my trip.

    A NO switch is just a Normally Open switch... I'd be more interested to know what a Yes switch is ;-)

    January -- Government's correction for a Leap Year. Billions were spent determining the most efficient method of delivery.

    We have Yes switches. What's next, File Not Found switches?

    And Pandora has managed something really really new! Extending IEEE 754 to cover ordinal numbers. Wow. Just wow.

    Does that NaN mean they use floating point to represent dates?

    Worst part about Unix cal is that it’s not locale-dependent. Mine is nl_NL.UTF-8, yet it shows the same Julian → Gregorian calendar anomaly for September 1752 as yours does, when in fact in my area, that change was made in December 1582.

    You think the formatting locale should affect how dates are translated to and from epoch time?

    I once had to fix an improperly installed NO/ℲℲO switch.

    You think the formatting locale should affect how dates are translated to and from epoch time?

    I mentioned the locale because it’s the first thing I could think of that might let the computer determine where in the world it’s located. There might be better ways, but I couldn’t remember any when I posted.

    Check if it is timezone dependent, setting TZ environment variable appropriately (e.g. TZ=Europe/Amsterdam).

    A self limiting, infinitely available source of energy exists if one provides an alternative bounds to 6D Hyperlyconverged String Theory to provide for a resonanting 5D/2D Laplacian effect binding the very largly resolute energy source to justify the following empericaly insurmountable "Bad thought experiment":

    1. Draw a Feynman Diagram consisting of 4 points and 4 waves
    2. Knock on it twice
    3. Go outside and touch something "green", heck you can just look at it
    4. Come back inside, and if: a. The Universely hasn't exploded in a compounding complex infinite/finite duality spectral way b. The apparation of a theoretical flying spaghetting monster in the sky does not summon the theorized "Tuning Fork of the Future" to provide for the "Hand of the Fun Hockey Goon" sitting next to you to blow up stars with his mind to boil water to summon such an anti essece of spaghetti to provide for such "MEAT MEAT / NOODLE NOODLE" or "NOODLE MEAT / MEAT NOODLE" invincible reversible diaelectic effect to cause cats to chase dogs and dogs to chase cats and Idealistically Dog Cat Behavior to crash into the sun c. The following self generating, self limiting heliocentric life support system is allowed so that:

    A. A cold thermometer measures the coldest temperature available B. A hot thermometer measures the hotest temperature available C. Such derivative growth of the entropic amount of biomatter in the universe may be collective doped to allow for the following heliocentrically therapuetic medical procedure:

    2. Patient Heal Thy Self
    3. Pray
  • jc_ec_ss (unregistered) in reply to extraordinary_space

    Such a heliocentric life support system allows for such observable antiEntropic effects to allow for a self censoring of all new life on earths that cross oceans with ships, hereby providing the now unknown, entirely emperically calculable justification to allow for no Invincibly Socratic Wrong or Invincible Socratic Right, such that the purpose of all science on the face of earth, the sun, and the very powerful yet entirely unconsequential deductible ID/EGO vs EGO/ID self lobotomizing effect of all non-trivial evolutionary drives to self limit themselves in the face of certainly observable unstoppable annhiliation, such that the following treaty my be induced in the present:

    1. Humans are special
    2. Humans, in theory, may blow up stars with their minds
    3. All that matters is what happens next and the entirely consequential, utterly effective calculable antiharm created in the universe

    Such that allowing for a calculable "Stroop" effect of David Finch's Season 2 lauch of Mindhunter to be infinitely delayed due to the entirelably calculable bounds it will have on the theory of life itself ! ! !

    . . . Such postulation allows for a theoretical retort in any witness depositon in a Civil, Legal, International, Intergalactic Universal Anthroporthic constant to allow for the following:

    1. A ternary mind effect yet to be discovered in the commodity markets, equities markets, and emerging cryptocurrency trading to provide for the Binding of All Prime Numbers to the sound made when a gong is rung in Buckingham Palace signifying the retreat of evolution into a infinitely complex compouding singular universal constant observable by all human kind to startup such a intergalactic binding interference of the observably finite graphene effect.
    2. For all non-trivial purposes, the the graphene effect binds itself to the emperically calculable frequency of Atomic Blast Hiroshima, Atomic Blast Nagasaki, the rotation of the earth, an orbital lensing, and yet a hereby infinite energy source of hyperloop dumping of all geodesic anti-anthropological evidence to the nearest loudest star in such a way it triggers an observable catalyst providing the motivational reason to attempt such heliocentric anthropoligcal experiments so that such "anthropological" market effects move to serve to anthropologically speaking "soothe" the collective "carbon payload" of earth...

    Not only does one Prime Mover exist, he's our personal play thing! We can do what we want!!! Spectral moral relativism does not equat to 1D Socratic Logic ! ! !

    Not only do we have to blow up any "squeky wheel in space", we need to make sure it looks like "Alpha Centuri" did it so we can sneak away from crossfire!
