It has been a year since I've got my car. It had 135k miles when I got it. In a year I rode 13k without major issues. I had to fix quite a few things to pass the state inspection, change tires, so the service expense constitutes a half of my spending. A quarter is insurance and registration taxes. A fifth is gas. It looks that the case prices are going up, but that could be also a seasonal thing. What I didn't expect is such a big variance in price between different stations and states.
The example he provides also illustrates that not much progress has been made towards respectful communication.
Here is the part of the article in a better quality.
I'm reading a paper by J. Paolillo titled "Conversational" Codeswitching on Usenet and Internet Relay Chat" His description of Usenet and IRC totally qualifies as a futuristic killer of Twitter. But then you see the years of references and remember that these system predicted social media long time ago.
На днях приготовил квас, правда закваска на простых дрожжах.
Сейчас эксперементирую с получившейся закваской: сейчас она пузырится в кострюле с кофе.
Паралельно, делаю закваску на ржаной муки. Думаю, ее пустить на квас и хлеб.
Кроме кофе, попробую заквасить клубнику, а если получится и понравится, то и свеклу.
A friend of mine figured out that my 135mm $14.00 lens is the fastest one.
A lens speed is actually quantifying its aperture, or the amount of light it gets trough.
This one is f/2.8.
With a wide open aperture, the shutter speed is the fastest (thus the name).
However, the dept of field is the shallowest. This means that the focus area is limited. It's is usually desired for portraits.
It is also required for action shots, to get them sharp...
