Weekly Web Harvest for 2019-02-10
- Remote Attendance – CHI 2019
You can hire a human proxy to bring you into the conference remotely through a wearable tablet and video conferencing software. The image below shows an example human proxy setup. Human proxies represent a lightweight way for you to be present and move throughout the conference venue for meeting other attendees and socializing. (Note: due to cost and venue challenges, we will not have telepresence robots – Beams – at CHI this year)

More random work. Much of this week was Protein Viewer for WordPress It has been interesting to look back over how this has evolved and the span of technologies involved. I’m still looking at the sheer number of options for molecule viewing. The plugin is on github but is still a first-draft. It does use the free version of ACF and it is included in the plugin automatically. And then I expanded to take URLs in addition to file uploads. There’s some weird stuff with mime types going on that I don’t quite understand. I can download a PDB file from the Protein Data Bank site but can’t upload it to WordPress. If I open the PDB file in Blender and export it as a PDB file it works fine. Checking on the mime type via terminal (file –mime-type -b yourFileName) seems to indicate they’re both the same. There are some slight differences in the text file itself but I don’t know what the problem is. In any case, the URL option gets around that problem and save storage space. I revisit Tweets and keep adding over time. This is not sensible behavior. So many options for viewing molecules of which I was totally unaware. https://t.co/GL0bkKcuJf — Tom Woodward (@twoodwar) May 12, 2020 Extensions I added the Zoom for GSuite […]

This page hopes to serve as a simple, one page summary for navigating the subtleties of this debate. AMD shares are soaring: Ethereum miners are renting Boeing 747s to ship graphics cards to mines — Quartz “Time is critical, very critical,” in mining, Marco Streng, chief executive of Genesis Mining, a major ethereum miner, told Quartz. “For example, we are renting entire airplanes, Boeing 747s, to ship on time. Anything else, like shipping by sea, loses so much opportunity.” John Popper From Blues Traveler Will Not Stop Posting Aerial Pictures of My House That’s when a Blues Traveler fan threatened to send the Mexican mafia to Rutherford’s house. qrpike/Web-Font-Load: Install all […]
