Low priority, I'm sure, but there's a z-index glitch with the Tito integration.

Recent versions of iTerm2 added realtime CPU and memory stats to the status bar. Try disabling those.

Can you find the median instead of average? I'm sure those numbers are skewed by the handful of unfortunate tourists who ride to the islands, etc.

Are lines that I create public by default? No, right?

Set the external monitor as your primary monitor and all your windows will be there by default as soon as you plug it in. I use laptop monitor only for secondary stuff.

Yeah likewise. I've done a bit almost every day since it launched. I didn't think they were going to dump us straight into the alphabet but I'm glad they did.

I understood that to mean "does it interact directly/indirectly with anyone in the trades"

Yeah, very similar. I only have one Entity table. The only other core table I have is for attachments (images, videos, etc).

Presumably this technique would also be available to builders of residential towers so why do we not see it?

Like his earlier masters thesis, Shannon attempted to tidy up intuitions from a messy field (circuits, and now genetics) with symbols and abstraction. But the work wasn't very successful. There's a chapter on this and his relation with Burks in "A Mind At Play"

Right, but why is the core only ~1 floor ahead on most residential towers in Toronto? One explanation on UT is about how there's more trades work required for installing the hundreds of bathrooms and kitchens, etc versus the relative simplicity of office buildings.

The good people of Urban Toronto have thousands of update photos but few explanations. This sheds a bit of light maybe:

In Toronto, usually the core isn't so much ahead of the floors though. This photo is from May:

The 1M index cards at Cold Spring Harbor was the best genetic data set at the time and Bush wanted to see if Shannon could make anything of it. (Doesn't seem like either were into the idea eugenics and Bush shut down the office in 1939). But hard to untangle exactly..

Also, I cache a lot of metadata from third party providers but I also try to normalize as much as possible into an opinionated set of entity types (venue, message, song, article, etc). Easier to build interface and queries this way.

Hey! That sounds good. You're going to get a lot of redundant data if you cache web pages on the activity object (because of how many times you open etc). My schema splits up Activities (the user's event stream) and Entities (web pages, photos, books, etc)
