People, please, no advertising on this wiki, as noted - Marcin


Needs: It would be really useful to have .dxf file uploads to the wiki as supported file types. - MJ 5/11/11

Is it worth laying out a basic category structure and asking users to adhere to that? And perhaps pointing them to the special page for categories so they can see what already exists and try to include relevant information in pre-existing categories?

If the wiki grows the current state where there are 3 or 4 categories for steam, a dozen different fab categories etc etc, is only going to get worse and make rectifying the problem that much more difficult.


Yes, good idea! I will make a small start.

  • Articles on various appropriate technologies are fine, but only if they focus on open-source or DIY aspects. There's no point explaining the benefits of, say, basalt fibers, unless you give instructions on how people can get them and use them. There's already a perfectly good appropriate technology wiki - Appropedia - and it'd be a waste of time to just reduplicate their efforts.
  • Our first priority should be documenting hardware and how to build, but there is also room for other kinds of pages
  • We need to clarify whether self-improvement topics like meditation are relevant
  • We need a category for handling essays on sociology, economics, guiding philosophies etc.
  • If we are archiving old conference calls etc., we need a better system for categorizing them.
  • We need to make a clearer distinction between Factor e Farm housekeeping stuff and stuff relevant to people offsite

> 3 or 4 categories for steam

I've tried to rationalize that a bit recently. - Mark

LaTeX formatting[edit]

Unfortunately, upon testing, this doesn't seem to lend itself well to mixing in fractions with LaTeX and normal wiki-formatted text. Allow me to demonstrate ...

Plain formatting (no LaTeX): On the six-foot piece of angle steel to become the left arm, you need to punch the following holes, each centered 1 1/4” from the long edge on the 4” inch side of the angle steel:

  • Two total 3/4” diameter holes at 2” and 70” (or 2” measured from the right edge) from the left end of the angle steel.
  • Seven total 13/16” diameter holes at 15”, 31”, 37”, 39 5/8”, 48 3/8” (23 5/8” measured from the right), 51” (21” from the right) and 64” (8” from the right) from the left end of the angle steel.

LaTeX-formatting the fractions using sfrac:
On the six-foot piece of angle steel to become the left arm, you need to punch the following holes, each centered 1 \(\sfrac{1}{4}\) ” from the long edge on the 4” inch side of the angle steel:

  • Two total \(\sfrac{3}{4}\) ” diameter holes at 2” and 70” (or 2” measured from the right edge) from the left end of the angle steel.
  • Seven total \(\sfrac{13}{16}\) ” diameter holes at 15”, 31”, 37”, \(39 \sfrac{5}{8}\) ”, \(48 \sfrac{3}{8}\) ” (\(23 \sfrac{5}{8}\) ” measured from the right), 51” (21” from the right) and 64” (8” from the right) from the left end of the angle steel.

LaTeX-formatting the fractions using suggested exponent/subscript formatting:
On the six-foot piece of angle steel to become the left arm, you need to punch the following holes, each centered \( 1{}^1/_4\) ” from the long edge on the 4” inch side of the angle steel:

  • Two total \({}^3/_4\) ” diameter holes at 2” and 70” (or 2” measured from the right edge) from the left end of the angle steel.
  • Seven total \({}^{13}/_{16}\) ” diameter holes at 15”, 31”, 37”, \(39 {}^5/_8\) ”, \(48 {}^3/_8\) ” (\(23 {}^5/_8\) ” measured from the right), 51” (21” from the right) and 64” (8” from the right) from the left end of the angle steel.

I think this is because LaTeX only works with its own fonts. It would probably look better if I coded everything in LaTeX instead of just attempting to use it for inline fractions that are mixing with non-LaTeX-formatted text including the " and non-fraction numbers right next to the LaTeX formatting.

Shop Small throughout Downtown Delray Beach[edit]

This November, the In town Development Authority regarding Delray Beach encourages the population to shop local along with support the community.

The downtown area Delray Beach is filled with over 400 small businesses which include fashion boutiques, art work galleries with community artists, salons, then one of a kind niche shops, making Delray Beach the best place to shop nearby.

Ideally, Bomback's presence will bring the right luck to the task, as well as several knife fights and a high-speed chase or a couple of. If the story seems to be dragging, Christian could shoot down a helicopter, or Anastasia can be turned into a mutant. As well as, they could take a far more metaphorical route and also pan away from the couple in bed to a series of massive explosions outside Christian's penthouse house windows. Either way, Bomback knows their way around a remarkable, secret-revealing monologue, which will definitley prove useful for all of Christian's lengthy expositional toasts.

Its Every Band for Itself on Social networking as FitBit Wins upon Twitter[edit]

Today Unmetric, the leader in social media competitive intelligence, released it is Fitness Bands Sociable Shape Up Record. The report may be the first to investigate just how top fitness bands C Basis, BodyMedia In shape, FitBit, Jawbone, and Nike+ Fuelband C measure on social media, while offering brand managers observations on what works along with what fails when connecting with consumers.

Unmetric found the wealth of data from its social media thinking ability platform to reveal who comes out on top in content strategy, engagement, growth and regularity of posts throughout Facebook, Twitter, Youtube . com and Pinterest during the thirty day period of August The year 2013.

The report demonstrates the space is ultra-competitive without any dominant brand parajumper parka emerging as the social media champ across all four systems. Broken down more granularly, a number of brands rose towards the surface on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and also Pinterest. Nike+ Fuelbands size gives it win on Facebook, yet smaller and less noisy Basis sees probably the most engaged fans. Nike in addition ruled on Twitting, with FitBit parajumpers sale rapidly shutting the distance in terms of follower size and proposal. Jawbone blows its competitors out of the water on YouTube by focusing on enjoyment over ads, along with BodyMedia FIT wins Pinterest by simply putting brand-relevant and logo-free written content in its pictures.

Precisely how did the data parajumpers outlet stop working by platform?

Facebook or myspace:

Nike+ Fuelband is the dominant brand on Facebook, mainly because it has the most significant fan base (192,238). While social media marketing success is defined at night sheer number of enthusiasts, Nikes uncanny ability to get to to nearly twice as many men and women as FitBit C it really is next-most-popular competitor C can be a difficult advantage to dismiss.

Yet in terms of wedding, Basis beat out the opposite brands. By noticing and balancing the complete number of Likes, Shares and Comments every post receives, Unmetric produces a benchmarkable number to measure proposal. Basis only produced five unsolicited blogposts in August, however it had the highest proposal on average with a rating of 112 (nearly twice the group average of 57). This disproves the parajumper jackets idea that more social written content always equals a lot more fan conversation.

David Pezold, a Republican representative within Georgia, said that concerns like creating work were more important than privacy for a lot of of his elements. But he said the matter of digital privacy was beginning to appear, especially because of the studies on eavesdropping by the authorities.

Theyre becoming increasingly skeptical that their parajumper coats lives are going to be no longer their own, explained Mr. Pezold, who promises to introduce a broad consumer privacy bill within the next legislative session. We've got to protect that.
