#xkcd #gammaTest Serena Versus the Drones - After the test, she said that if she had a choice, she wouldn’t defend herself against drones using a tennis ball and racket, though she would absolutely pick them over other sports equipment. But, she added, &quot;Drones don't bother me.&quot; - Fri, 16 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2190/ #poweredByAwk
#xkcd #gammaTest E Scooters - Obviously battery technology and prices have driven a lot of the scooter explosion, but I feel like Dean Kamen must be at least a little grumpy about how much people laughed at the idea of the Segway. - Mon, 12 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2188/ #poweredByAwk
#xkcd #gammaTest Unpopular Opinions - I wasn't a big fan of 3 or Salvation, so I'm trying to resist getting my hopes up too much for Dark Fate, but it's hard. I'm just a sucker for humans and robots traveling through time to try to drive trucks into each other, apparently. - Fri, 02 Aug 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2184/ #poweredByAwk
#xkcd #gammaTest Icon Swap - Someone's probably working on an eBook app where, if you stop reading right before some plot twist happens, the app will wait a while and then send you a breaking news alert about what's happening, prompting you to open it and read the next few pages to learn more. - Wed, 31 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2183/ #poweredByAwk
#xkcd #gammaTest When I'm Back at a Keyboard - [after typing 1,500 words on feathered dinosaurs, paleontology, sexism, lava, and dinosaurs as animals rather than movie monsters] Sorry to cut it short, I'm on my phone. When I'm back at a keyboard, I can give you another 5,000 words. - Mon, 29 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2182/ #poweredByAwk
#xkcd #gammaTest Spreadsheets - My brother once asked me if there was a function to produce a calendar grid from a list of dates in Google Sheets. I replied with a single-cell formula that took in a list of dates and outputted a calendar. It used SEQUENCE(), REGEXMATCH(), and a double-nested ARRAYFORMULA(), and it locked up the browser for 15 seconds every time it ran. I think he learned a lot about asking me things. - Wed, 24 Jul 2019 04:00:00 -0000 - https://xkcd.com/2180/ #poweredByAwk
