  1. I have confirmed that it works now. Thank you for the prompt fix!
  2. I see, thank you. The old notifications are lost, presumably, so I will know tomorrow.
  3. As of about 4 days ago, I stopped receiving my email notifications to my gmail address. I have checked the settings, and the spam folder as well, but they are not there. While missing notifications did happen in the past, it usually cleared up within a day or two. I still get notification markers on website itself. While their utility is less than before the update, I would still appreciate getting them back, please?
  4. Well, we can hope if others read this they will chime in if they experience something similar. As far as left-right goes, it's not like I am purposely placing the mouse where it is - the act of using that navigation tool necessitates the mouse position in the horizontal space, the refresh to the page I navigated forces the screen to the top (putting the mouse above the menu bar) and trying to move down (either to another navigation link or a new thread link) pops the menu in the way. I think even a 1 second hover would fix it - but no hover at all means no respite from the constant menu-spam. FWIW, while it does not bother me (I do not use navbar), I did try to click on "17th shard discussion" on this very page several times, by moving mouse upwards, and in about half of the cases, I overshot slightly and brushed against "Shardcast". The popup then appeared and did not (naturally) disappear when I moved mouse down until I left the said popup. So yes, it is possible, and in fact, very easy to click on it accidentally if one does not stop and move mouse away on the menu bar or under the popup. That also happens if one moves mouse from the top of the page downwards.
  5. Up until yesterday, whenever I got an email notifying me of PM, it also contained the whole of the PM, quotes and such included. However, now it only contains a first few words or so and then sends me to the forums <_< I much preferred the original functionality, since it allowed me to read the replies easily on mobile (reading them from email is much easier) and then reply when I got home to my PC. Also, it served as automatic message backup. I do believe that the same issue happened after the last update and it was fixed by... I think Chaos? So I would appreciate it if it could be fixed again, or the setting added. As an aside, could the opacity on the quote borders be bumped up a bit? Or the lower border added? At 0.15, I just barely see it, but it takes effort, so I cannot really tell where the quote ends, especially when there are several in sequence with replies to them.
  6. I know not of the "She" you speak of. Cupcakes is but a revelation of the true mindsets if some MLP members.
  7. About Life sense - in the same chapter as Nightblood and Sunset there is this: Note that Vasher can sense that something is grass and where it is. Nightblood is an entity mainly made of Breaths, geared toward interaction with humans by its command : So itslifesense is apparently enough to feel the fisherman, feel his location and possibly lift his direction from his head. Or possibly, his lifesense is varied enough to act like Inquisitor's Steelsight, feeling variations inside the body enough to tell where a person is facing. It is his major sense, so it is probably that it is better developed than in human, who has other senses overshadowing it. Which does not explain how a straw figure would be able to even walk - two-legged (I assume) walk requires a lot of senses to properly pull off - balance, touch, relative positions of body parts, something for navigation. Part of it is probably carried over from the fact that Breaths were originally human, and so fit better to human patterns. Other... Yes, I would probably have to go with "Shadesmar sight." It is one of my currently dominant opinions that Spiritual realm does not have...Distance and time resolution, for lack of better word. For me, it contains more of the history and interactions of the object than the object itself (as if THAT makes any sense ), past, present and future. OK, my head is a mess. Anyway. IMO (current): Breaths have at least some cognitive component, with even more being added by Command, and the object uses that for senses. Depending on command, it can filter the input in different ways.
  8. (Reads up) Ok, that makes sense, I guess. I'll just follow the links from there Thank you. Now, as for the bubbles, Ive realized too late that bottom end of the gravitational well corresponds to chromium bubble -slower time. So the effect for the light entering the bubble is to increase energy (as perceived by people in the bubble. Seriously, definitions of kinetic energy in even simple moving reference frames start to baffle me. Add to this SR, and, well... XD I kinda wonder what the world looks like from, say, neutrino POV, which seems to be always moving at almost the speed of light. Ahem.) So anything at the border that would drain energy from the, say, bullet, can be applied to light, therefore avoiding blueshift. Hmm... Maybe I'll think about it some more.
  9. I admit that I watch the show from time to time... For its Shivering InSaNiTy! hidden under veneer of normality. Pinkiepie's insecurity and paranoia, Twilight's spikes of OCD, Spike's occasional greed and crosspecies love, Rarity's wrath and arrogance Delightful, I say. They would make the most interesting Hemalurgy experiments, I say. Maybe we would be able to spike those qualities in cats, oh, yes. Also, cupcakes
  10. Thank you! (Reads up on contravariance) The vectors are not what I thought they are (which was an ordered collection of number-things, btw, that cannot be any-variant) Another question then - is multiplication of co and contravariant vectors (vectors, not tensors) commutative? Because in school I learned that depending on order of column/row vectors you get inner or outer product, respectively XD And what is the difference between a tensor and particularly multidimensional matrix? Back to relativistic bubbles IIRC (I am very unsure) that energy variation is what blue/redshift is all about - for me, as a dabbling layman, lowering frequency is in many ways the same thing as making light slower, or stretching space a bit. When light exits gravitational well, it sheds energy, and with it, frequency, until, in case of black hole, it falls back down Hmm, that actually makes sense, in a way - entering a bendalloy bubble is like falling down the grav well - you gain speed, and light gains intensity instead of frequency, resulting in the same energy gain... hmmm... Or does it gain frequency as far as outside world is concerned, but intensity compensation as far as the bubble itself is concerned? I've mentioned before that the way something perceives light kind of depends on the "speed" of its own interactions with said light - so they light might be blueshifted, but if you are sped up, you won't notice it. This can be made to fit a lot of things... except the air pressure thing At least I don't see how. ... I need to go to sleep NOW.
  11. I know this is offtopic (and maybe I should have used PM system), but as QFT practitioner, can you (or somebody) explain the difference between vectors/matrices/tensors with subscript indices and superscript indices? Like fijk and fijk? Apparently it is so basic that nobody ever bothers explaining it (in the articles that I've read, wiki included) XD It drives me nuts XD Back to the bubbles - as usual, with gravity the border of the bubble seems to have discontinuity which is rather hard for me to handwave. The time/gravity/space shear there should be rather huge, as far as I can tell. And a simple experiment can show that the energy values (as we understand energy, anyway, which is a different topic entirely) do change - a solar battery/ induction based charger inside a bendalloy bubble would produce more energy, possibly even more than actually went into emitting the light in the first place, if efficiency is above timechange percentage (around 12.5% for 8x bubble, that is). This is not unusual for realmatic interactions per se (see - Feruchemical iron perpetuum mobile).
  12. Well, my current attitude towards bubbles is rather well summarized in this post. (Though some points have been answered since) And IIRC, my question to Brandon about water stream impacting the border of bubble was promptly RAFOed (it was during first brainstorming session or whatnot XD) I mean, photon count, nyah, nyah Photons are energy, so the bubble could probably shuffle them *somewhere*, and time shenanigans could fix blue/redshift issues. But what happens to larger objects, like air molecules? Because they'd have to be destroyed on exit of bendalloy bubble, for example (unless they bounce, which raises a host of other questions) And a question for you, Kurk Imagine that Odium created a time bubble that is anchored to Cosmere center Roshar surface, taking rotation into account, at the Scadrial-Roshar distance from Roshar center. What'd happen when it impacts Scadrial, going at the speed considerably higher that speed of light, and goes through Wax that is just then jumping out of the train? EDIT: Physics
  13. A Rockeater princess, here? Torture her for her secrets!
  14. Warning/ disclaimer: Frankly, as I see you, I am ashamed. Ashamed and DISGUSTED! Is this what the proud Caton has degenerated to? Have you no sense of our HISTORY? Even so, have you no pRiDe? We cats are proud species of Gore, Murder and Fluffiness! Even a normal cat is proud to KILL (as depicted in this comic), and would go for major veins with their claws to show AfFeCtIoN (experience)! And that is the kind of banner you would suggest for us, Awesomeness Summoned? We should MAUL you for presumption! Pathetic creatures, art yar cats or mice spiked with the essence of Lifeless PUPPIES? Art yar VERMIN?? (note to self: breed mice spiked with lifeless puppies, spike city officials with that) As it is now, we shoid aSpIrE to be like Felynes, at least they are respected and regenerate from any injury, throwing bombs larger than their bodies! And yet we the Cat Inquisitors (though I am part human, for my eternal shame) have so much more potential! Potential for GORE and DOMINATION! Now, I knyaw that our origins are humble, as our organization was born from research of deranged, self-spiked human (me), but our goals are lofty: taking over the cosmere as the shadow rulers. Not to mention that our creation is supported by BRANDON himself! Know, ye unbelievers that the mind of a catquisitor is TWISTED (here is a symbolical representation). Know that our types and phenotypes are MaNy! The Engineer, the Spy, the Harvester! (I apologize for my inability to draw) ReMeMbEr, that we had many successes, as we terrorized Elendel! Follow the great example of Kurkistan, who has summoned the DEVIL, the Satan to spike it and take its powers for his own, even though he had to replace parts of his body by metal and cybernetics! Ah, how the blood of a hundred virgins flowed that day, how new kittens played in their VISCERA! This is our foundation. See how he, alone, invaded Sel and has taken over the whole COUNTRY that now bears his name and gives him POWER? We should follow this glorious example! Quitecontrary, did you say cat MEAT? We shall invade China and eat their INFANTS! (As soon as we are done with Elendel) Their vast population would swell our numbers! Tempus: For shame! Dost thee not know that squid causes gastrointestinal distress in cats? I applaud your attempts in creating the cat-stamp that would transform lowly HUMANS and noble Cats into the Cat Inquisitors, even though the change is temporary. But the ink you use is weak. The best ink for soulstamps is made from human blood and BILE, as their livers are RIPPED from their bodies, with some ground bone added for stability. Keep that in mind, nyaw will you? In conclusion: We are cats! We DOMINATE and INFILTRATE! Have some dignity, or ate least BLOODYMINDEDNESS!
