A story of love, loss, and devRant.
My favorite sunglasses were a victim of hurricane Irma. They were sitting on the park bench when a powerful gust of wind blew them onto the cement floor, where both lenses were fucked right where I look out of them. I bought these sunglasses at Disney with my family and have not stopped wearing them since. I was pretty upset.
Enter devRant. Sad and without sunglasses, I hoped that virtual ones might suffice. Lo and fucking behold, in the profile editor, there they were: my exact sunglasses, even with the choice between silver and gold. Absolutely fucking perfect. Made my day.10
My teammate used p tag and made it look like a button using css.
He has 10 years of web development experience.14
Irma is coming. And just a few weeks after we move to South Beach full time. Figures.
Anyway, if the storms sweeps us away, remember that I love you all.
Well... most of you.
Ok, like a handful of you.58
I'm exhausted and quite drunk so I just want to say I hope everyone in this cunt Irma's path stays safe. ❤️4
HURRICANE INSPIRED PI PROJECT!
So in anticipation of hurricane Irma I built this little thing which measures barometric pressure using my raspberry pi's sense hat! It also adds the data to a graph. Very fun!9
Company calls today. Offers me a job which is great i have been looking for 7 months.
Today hurricane irma is coming its getting close gas stations are out of fuel. No water at stores. Chaos on the roads.
Company asks me to come in Tommorow for interview. 😑9
Genuinely upset that I don't have wifi
I can deal without a/c, not wifi.
Any people in south Florida that are affected by the hurricane? How are you guys doing? Stay safe and don't forget to push your code.
I have a habit of viewing the page source of beautiful websites I visit... as well as finding out technologies used on it.2
!rant && !dev
I am finally back home. My car was okay, house was okay, and I had electricity. Bad news: no internet connection. Looks like I have to use my phone for stack overflow.3
!really a rant
To all the devRanters that are getting hit by Irma: wish you the best of luck and stay safe over there!
The news I'm receiving here in Italy are quite terrifying.
Stay safe and get back to ranting when everything has stabilized. We need you!
Irma took our power. The people across the street have power wtf. All our lines are below ground. Why #outofpower. #twistedmyanklemovinshutters2
Man, the technology we have right now. I'm watching YouTube live stream from some guy from Florida Keys.3
Just survived Hurricane Irma. Got back from Miami yesterday morning.
Okay, that was horrible.
But at least I am going to Maker Faire on the 23rd.
<p>Do you know how clean tap water is? The answer to that question largely depends on where you live, but thinking about it is always a good idea. Drinking water is often contaminated with organic compounds, minerals, chlorine, and chemicals left over from the water treatment process. If you need cleaner water, the easiest way to do this is to get a filtered jug. This guide of <a href="https://womenselections.com/best-wa...">what is the best water filter pitcher</a> will help you find the best water filter jug for your needs and budget.</p>
<p>Filtered launchers are very diverse. To help the reader, we limit ourselves to a few outbreaks through testing and research. We tested various models ourselves, we examined a large number of launcher classifications and confirmed our own findings.</p>

<p><strong>Water filter pitcher filter type</strong><br />The filter jug comes with various types of cartridges. Typically, only one type of cartridge can be used, so you cannot select the desired cartridge. The exception is if you select a brand that offers a choice between two cartridges. Each of these cases has its advantages.</p>
<p><strong>Carbon filtration</strong><br />Most cartridges use carbon and are particularly effective at filtering chlorine and its by-products, such as TTHM. These cartridges contain blocks of solid carbon or granular activated carbon (also called activated carbon). In both cases, carbon usually comes from coconut shells, but it can also be made from coal, brown coal, wood, or oil pitch. Carbon can be physically or chemically activated.</p>
<p>There are two ways to physically activate carbon. One is to heat the carbonized material to 450-900 degrees Celsius in an inert atmosphere. Usually nitrogen or argon is present. Alternatively, the manufacturer may use oxidation. In this case, the material is typically heated to 1200 degrees Celsius and exposed to oxygen.</p>
<p>Chemical activation involves the injection of various chemicals into the material. The most common chemicals are hydroxide, sodium hydroxide, zinc chloride, calcium chloride. These chemicals facilitate carbon activation. This means that the process takes less time. However, the material must be heated to 450-900 degrees Celsius.</p>
<p>As the water passes through the cartridge filter, the carbon absorbs liquid and gaseous impurities. Due to the highly porous surface and physical form of activated carbon, one gram has an absorbent surface of 32,000 square feet. Still, it becomes saturated with impurities. If this occurs, you will need to replace the cartridge.</p>
<p><strong>In the conclusion</strong><br />If you are considering buying a pitcher filter as the only filter in your home, you should know what your water contains before you buy it. Today, many launchers have successfully removed most of the harmful contaminants. On the other hand, there are still bottles that can only filter out basic contaminants. As always, I recommend that you test your water before purchasing a pitcher.</p>
<p>Whatever it is, healthy water should always be a priority. I hope my comments, suggestions and guidelines will help you buy the best <a href="https://arizonawet.arizona.edu/user...">water filter pitcher review</a>. However, if you don't think the launcher is a viable option and have considered all of the options, please feel free to visit our website. He uploaded many other honest reviews like this. I am sure you will find the best option.</p>
