I've heard people calling for it to be abandoned, and people calling for it to be 2 hours, rather than 1
I think there are studies that show the shift in times causes adverse affects to physical and mental health
Clock shifts were found to increase the risk of heart attack by 10 percent, and to disrupt sleep and reduce its efficiency.
I think most people don't understand the benefit of it (it's just an annoyance for most of us!), whereas others are very grateful for it. A quick google search turned up https://www.scotsman.com/news/scottish-news/uk-faces-choice-between-time-border-or-darkness-scotland-until-9am-1555400
It seems like those in favour of DST are generally farmers (I think?), and those in (north?) Scotland
why do farmers care - the only thing DST changes is what time the shops open relative to dawn, and i've never seen queues of farmers outside tesco first thing ?
https://www.marketplace.org/2018/03/09/5-things-you-need-know-about-daylight-saving-time/ "Farmers hated daylight saving time. So much that they lobbied against it,"
Interesting: > Daylight Saving Time was first suggested as a joke by Benjamin Franklin in his whimsical essay “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” published in the Journal de Paris (1784-04-26). Not everyone is happy with the results.
the clock changing is really handy for about 2 weeks; after that there is so little sunlight that it doesn't make very much difference
I've moved to a new machine that has 3 USB-C ports and not much else; one of them is taken up by a power cable, so in effect I've lost a port Trying to see if there is a USB-C hub, but a search brings up lots of devices with USB-B sockets and one USB-C plug Why aren't there multi-USB C socket -> USB-C plug adapters? is the spec not so amenable to daisy-chaining? am I looking in the wrong places?
@ben.hammond I’ve not looked for a year; but every time I look I’m left with the feeling USB-C is a disaster, because of the absence of things like that.
Also there’s so many incompatibilities with USB-C stuff, you can’t just plug any USB-C device into another and expect it to work.
i have TWO hubs on my usb-c macbook where the previous gen retina just had enough ports
not sure if @mccraigmccraig was in the office the day my work laptop (non magsafe) got pulled off the side and landed on the floor.. .but i remember raging about the fact that it was a completely solved problem (w/ magsafe). that laptop had to have its screen replaced (luckily inside warranty) less than a mth later and im sure it was coz of that
ah well; sound like the solution is to stick with USB-B as long as possible and stock up on USB-socket -> USB-C plug adapters and hope for the best
i’m experiencing lots of issues with USB-C chargers. My phone will only accept charge from a subset of chargers in the house. The macbook will accept charge from a different (but not disjoint) subset of chargers in the house. and other devices accept all chargers. confused
My question may still be relevant 🙂 I'm looking to import the boundary of the UK (to determine if things are inside/outside of the UK). I've stumbled upon
import those boundaries into PostGIS, then issue SQL queries is generally my favoured ad-hoc GIS query approach
However, for my purposes, perhaps if I just enclose the UK in a box with min/max lat/lng that may be good enough
@rickmoynihan might also have thoughts, assuming PMD/zib still does lotsa geo goodness
iirc back in the day a lot of it was using the geo tools in elasticsearch :thinking_face:
elasticsearch is great for fast-as-f* online stuff... we used to use PostGIS for all our pre-processing and ad-hoc stuff, then load pre-processed GeoJSON objects (often at different resolutions) from pg into ES for the API to serve to web clients
