Last night's bad idea coming out of my sleepy brain:
That was my phone complaining about low battery.
Should I get up and put it to charge or should I wait for the morning?
It depends on what time it is. I need to know what time it is.
But I don't have a clock on my nightstand. I use the phone to check the time.
And I don't want to turn on the phone's screen or that'll just make it discharge faster.
I know! I have a small torch at arm's length. I just need to shine the torch on the phone's screen, no need to turn its screen's backlight on. TDEMSYR. Go back to sleep.
some kind of sanity check for a tab's memory usage
By far the easiest way to do this is using processes. Tracking memory allocated to a tab (or, more generally, any complex task) when you've potentially got multiple threads working within the tab is distinctly difficult, especially if you don't want to add vast amounts of management metadata overhead.
For uBlock, only add the blocklists you need, as every additional list consumes more battery power (i.e. use the ultimate combined list and unsubscribe from the ones it includes). For Phony, set it to Internet Explorer.
Finally, instead of reddit mobile, use i.reddit.com. Note that reddit uses fishy 301s to send you to the mobile site, so you'll need to clear the cache to use the alternative mobile site.
Corrugated galvanised iron or steel (colloquially corrugated iron (near universal), wriggly tin (taken from UK military slang), pailing (in Caribbean English), corrugated sheet metal (in North America) and occasionally abbreviated CGI) is a building material composed of sheets of hot-dip galvanised...
The house I grew up in had a whole barn made of the stuff
This. Except, a smartphone can't control the AC or measure the wheel pressure or have access to a dedicated GPS antenna on the roof*. But car makers could provide access to all that to your phone with an USB connector and a standard protocol.
I was once working on a project that communicated through an OBDII adapter for that, actually. Except I never got very far due to lack of hardware that the car manufacturer wouldn't ever attempt to hook into my system to let it work.
He can't recall all of the details, but it's a common-ish spell for travelers, though more common for bards and rangers than clerics. It has a long casting time, far exceeding combat-compatible spells, but can prove just as useful in the long-run as any martial benediction. By attuning the caster to the land around them, the ritual imparts a sort of familiarity with the area, as if they had been there before but a while ago (though the information the ritual gives is up to date, if not entirely detailed). Important to note is that it grants this familiarity for several miles- which explains why the brother had cast it during lunch and again this morning. The slow wagons must be able to outpace the brother's reach in a half-day's march.
@RaceProUK if an analogue photo steals a portion of your soul, it stands to reason that a digital photo will steal the same portion for each pixel, so it makes sense to limit the resolution of photos that are shared.
@abarker Then again, there's also the Fantastic Four to consider which are kind of prominent and yet all their movies have been duds
IIRC, the film rights to the Fantastic 4 are held by another company, on the caveat that there's a film released every so often. So they rush through a film whenever the license is about to run out, purely for keeping the rights rather than making a good film. Not sure if there's a reason for this beyond keeping it out of the MCU
