Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.

An absolute path or full path is a unique location of a file or directory name within a computer or filesystem, and usually starts with the root directory or drive letter. Directories and subdirectories listed in a path are usually separated by a slash (/).

Example: /Users/Matt/www/blog/images/icecream.jpg

To find the absolute filesystem path of the directory containing a web page, copy the code below into a new text file, save the file as path.php (thus making a simple PHP web page), and move that file to your web server. Then direct your web browser to the URL address of that file (e.g. http://www.example.com/path.php).

The term ‘slug’ comes from the world of newspaper production.

It’s an informal name given to a story during the production process. As the story winds its path from the beat reporter (assuming these even exist any more?) through to editor through to the “printing presses”, this is the name it is referenced by, e.g., “Have you fixed those errors in the ‘kate-and-william’ story?”.

Some applications (such as Django) use the slug as part of the URL to locate the story, an example being www.mysite.com/archives/kate-and-william.

It may even date back earlier than that since screenplays had “slug lines” at the start of each scene, which basically sets the background for that scene (where, when, and so on). It’s very similar in that it’s a precis or preamble of what follows.

On a Linotype machine, a slug was a single line piece of metal which was created from the individual letter forms. By making a single slug for the whole line, this greatly improved on the old character-by-character compositing.

Look, up in the sky! It probably isn’t a bird and it definitely isn’t Superman. As one of the fastest modes of transportation, airplanes are a common part of the world’s everyday scenery. With distinctive colors and artistic designs on the wings and tail, it’s easy to see which planes belong to which companies. But large commercial jets also provide ample space for various kinds of promotions, often taking the mostly blank hull of the aircraft and turning it into a flying billboard. If a particular company, team or group has a large enough following, chances are its likeness has appeared on an airplane. Hello Kitty, the Boston Red Sox and even Mickey Mouse have been featured on aircraft. For those dedicated fans interested in travel, here are 15 themed airplanes that grace the skies with their designs. Have something to add to this story? Share it in the comments.
Ever since Star Trek explained away how all alien races could speak English through a piece of future tech called the Universal Translator, technology companies have worked to create just such a device. One may have succeeded in developing a 1.0 version with the Sigmo. The Sigmo is a small, pillbox-sized device equipped with a microphone and speaker, but with a cloud-connected twist. Select the language you’d like to translate into, then hold the Sigmo up and speak to it. The Sigmo records your voice, then sends the recording to the cloud for translation via Bluetooth connection with your smartphone.
