I was watching someone use a piece of software that reconstructed timelines... it looked like video editing. It was showing thousands of clips that were being manipulated all at once in some kind of semi-automated way.
me: "What is this program called?"
I was shown a very dull-looking brown box that looked like the kinds of packages productivity software came in during the 80s. The title of the program was "Ionic Multiplier".
That isn't a popular phrase on the internet, but has two mentions in the context of chemistry and physics.
Later a man was showing me some technical specs and had Clear Gigabit Ram.
me: "What does clear mean in this context?"
him: (shocked?) "How could you not know?"
me: "I'm sorry, I don't. Is it optically transparent, like can you see through it?"
him: "No. It specifically relates to the way memory access is performed."
Beyond that, I couldn't get it explained in a way that I could understand.
Currently I am experimenting with using Disqus for comments, however it is configured that you don't have to log in or tie it to an account. Simply check the "I'd rather post as a guest" button after clicking in the spot to type in a name.
