    It depends on the popular demand. I cannot do it too often, I have to leave room for others.

    It could not escape me that this topic is marked as official, though it is posted neither in ~tildes.official nor by @Deimos.

    DIUC that you are now a co-admin (or, at least, a lesser admin rather than just a user with very elevated privileges)? EVEN BEFORE go1dfish ???

    The author of the paper is N. Rabino from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Abstract:

    A computational fluid dynamics methodology is used to study the salient flow features around the breasts of a human figure and to describe the aerodynamic differences imparted by their geometric presence. Two models are proposed for examination: a 3-dimensional reference based on a character design with a significantly buxom figure and a modification of this design where the breast size is reduced significantly. The two models are tested at speeds ranging from 1 to 30 m⋅s^-1 using Reynolds-averaged Navier Stokes (RANS). Drag, lift, and skin friction forces, along with turbulence kinetic energy (TKE), are investigated and compared between the different models. The present results are expected to provide useful information on the validity of the statement, "Flat is Justice" in terms of an aerodynamic standpoint. In addition to this, the results can offer worthwhile data investigating the anthropometrical presence of large breasts on sport aerodynamics.

    From the conclusion: As such, the results have indicated that large breasts can be notably aerodynamic through the reduction of drag and lift. … From what has been presented in this preliminary work, it is safe to conclude that the phrase “Flat is Justice” is deficient aerodynamically.

    A.S. Thanks a lot! A small note to the Post during the Day per Hour graph: 12:00 GMT = 17:30 IST (not 20:30, as someone who follows cricket, I almost have to know the IST offset of 5.5 hours)....

    A small note to the Post during the Day per Hour graph: 12:00 GMT = 17:30 IST (not 20:30, as someone who follows cricket, I almost have to know the IST offset of 5.5 hours).

    Otherwise, the Post during the Day per Hour graph shows that Tildes is basically a European site as of now: most activity happens when it is evening in Europe.

    Update all your bookmarks to old.reddit.com, otherwise the option to use the usable Reddit will “mysteriously” disappear all the time… until they decide to remove it completely.

    Yes, this plus the same thing for the hours alone (regardless of the day of week).

    Would this be something like this chart? That's an old chart taken from my first statistics topic.

    Activity per hour (i.e., the number of topics or comments submitted between 00:00 UTC and 01:00 UTC across days, then between 01:00 and 02:00 and so on), with further filtering by group.

    Activity per time per user. As for per-user statistics, who is going to be able to see it (the user in question, users with elevated privileges, other users, non-logged-in lurkers)? As the access to user pages is limited for those not logged in, I would suggest that per-user statistics should not be available in that case.

    P.S. Thanks a lot, though the graphs are a bit depressing…

    All Discord servers are invite only (though the invite link may be public, and even if that link is available, it might not work).

    Ordinary users have a very limited ability to search Discord (by design, and the “advanced” tools like the very dis.cool discussed here are against Discord's ToS), but advertisers have all the data.

    A.S. While I cannot say that I fully support Discord's non-discoverability (i.e., one cannot easily find a server by name), I cannot support ToS violation.

    How long have they been around?

    I checked my profile on their site and they publicly revealed that I was active on a blob emoji Dicord server more than one year ago, and that there is one related account and two “smaller related servers” (available on log in—no, I am not creating an account there). While I indeed joined that blob server back then, it's been long since I left, and I am not sure I had made a comment or even a reaction while being there. However, my joining and possibly leaving the server could have been registered by Tatsumaki or a similar bot, and these join/leave logs are often public.

    This looks like dis.cool uses bots—as well as “ordinary users” who do nothing but run scrapping scripts—of its own to scrap everything, so if those bots are not let into a Discord server, then dis.cool cannot index it.
