    It's weird, I've been at the beach every weekend for a couple weeks now and I've yet to get sunburned. My friends did though haha. I don't really tan either so it's weird.

        Not on topic about the weather stuff, but on the scientific part, a new Ichthyosaur species has been described. The Wahlisaurus massarae. It lived in the early Jurassic, about 200 million years ago when the ichthyosaurs were really successful.

        Surprisingly, the fossil has been found 60 years ago in England, yet it hasn't been fully examined and described until recently.

        If anyone's interested, here's a link to the article.

        I definitely think this would be a good idea for its own thread! :)

        It's been raining all month over here and is quite chilly. No surprise, seeing as it's winter! However, looks like we might finally get a spot of sunshine today!

        Also, I've been wondering - why is there no thread about time warps in a science forum? :0 I'm not very scientifically-minded but I'd love to read everyone else's thoughts and ideas on the subject!

        Quite enjoyed the decent amount of rain we got yesterday. Nice and overcast. Love days like those after super hot ones.

        can we seriously talk about weather in this thread? Or is this something Zach is pulling our legs? lmao

        Humid with a random thunderstorm or two. It has been like this every day this week here in Houston.

        TF, I'd love to see more programming stuff. I've seen lack thereof since this section was born, so if you and Zach were to bring something like that back, I'd totally enjoy it.

        You're kidding me, right? I thought you of all people would know that meteorology is science. :P

        No I ask for the sake of the people at the other DCC who hate people that talk about weather.

        I just want to talk about weather and not get BS over it. lmao

          bruuuuuh, I lived through that weather throughout my teenage and early 20 years. I know what that type of heat is like over there. It's unbearable.

          Texas heat is freaking insane though. You can't even breathe in it. It's 90 degrees but with the stupid humidity it feels like 110 and it's omfg awful.

          an official WEATHER CHAT finally yes

          It's been unusually humid in Sweden as of late. >80%RH at ~27 degrees Celsius. I'm really not used to that, I prefer my air dry haha.

          Three 90 degree days in a row starting today. Might even be too hot to go poolside.

          We lucked out and only got one 90 degree day this past warm spell, but it was the warmest day we've had since 2010 (it hit 96 on Saturday). And then severe storms rolled in for every area around me except for my town. The portion of the storms on track to hit my town just completely fizzled out 20 miles away.

          Alright y'all, I've fallen behind on Element of the Week already, but I promise a new one is coming up today! :)

          Also it is seriously hot as psyduck here. 88° (31° C) here at 10:30am. -_-

          I'm considering starting a new feature in TL called "Programmer's Mindset" where I discuss the ideas and principles of programming in a way that everyone, even those that don't program, can understand (Such as making analogies and comparisons to things that people can grasp). It'd be a semi-frequent feature, not weekly or monthly, but I would make some posts on it every month, and I'd be the basis for the introduction, and when people discuss them, I can answer questions or even use people's discussions as future topics. Who would be interested in reading/discussing such a thing?
          A little late reply, but I definitely think this is something we could look forward to here!

            I'm building a computer for my boss today! That'll be so much fun... but it's been so long >.> I hope I don't forget anything. Any tips?

            Edit: pro tip - make sure you buy the right kind of RAM. We had 288 pin and needed 240 pin.

            Can you afford an i7? A good motherboard? An SSD? Those are highly recommended. But I think it also depends on what your boss really wants in terms of specs. Those are the things I used last time when I was building/upgrading the bank computers when I was working there.

            I guess what I'm trying to ask is, what is your budget?

            Probably also a good idea to ask what the computer will be used for, too. I might even be able to give you a sample build, complete with price if you're in a certain few countries.

              All the pieces are bought and assembled except for the RAM, but thank you.

              It has an i7, SSD, and good mobo as well sorry just saw the post above.
