Hi all,

I'm still playing this game, but my day job is analytics.

Thought you all might enjoy this little Tableau toy I threw together for myself to make finding stuff in SC2 just a little easier

Best,
Mike

I've worked with tableau before, but never knew this was possible Wink.

you live in a rich country with education and no hunger and no sufficient housing and no poverty and no opression. as such you don't  need religion.
many people live in countries where these things are not available. they turn to religion to get them through their daily lives.

Before we all get our hopes up that your idea can actually fix things:

You shouldn't, unless you have a basic understanding of what I said.

I am actually a well versed programmer with experience in machine learning. But not the medical/biological experience.

What is your expertise in this subject matter?

This seems like an appeal to authority, which is a cognitive bias: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Argument_from_authority
So that means that we should trust you without you having authority?

Narsham, I entirely understand the court thingy, but it is in my opinion not done to make such posts on dogarandkazon's blogspot site Smiley.

I didn't mean it, I just hoped he would retaliate in a worse way and you would ban him as a result (or he would leave on his own accord).

Attempting to provoke someone to posting sometihing bannable (by means other than being so nice it drives them batty) is not an improvement.

That is open for debate Smiley

I just have to say that I am really disappointed in the smear campaign that TFB are doing against stardock.
Legal business is legal business and should be left to their lawyers without making fools of yourselves in public.
You don't see lawyers criticizing Fred on how he writes his code, now do thay?

But perhaps that's my european mind voicing its opinion. I always have the image in my head of the blindfolding statuette holding scales.
Now it appears that TFB, who I held in the highest regard for a long time, add turds to those scales in hopes of influencing them.

Bottom line: Leave lawyering to lawyers or I will think of you less because of it.

Folks,

having opinions is OK. Even opinions lots of us disagree with. Even opinions that I disagree with, or you disagree with.

But personal attacks are not so OK. And it gets much less OK when they are unfounded, hyperbolic, overgeneralized, and/or intensely personal.

Also, issuing cryptic statements that can come across as threatening is not so great, even if the threat is mild.

I didn't mean it, I just hoped he would retaliate in a worse way and you would ban him as a result (or he would leave on his own accord).
Besides that, if I am so successful at threatening across the ocean and through telephone and glass fibre wires, I really should change my profession.

I ALSO LOVE KITTENS AND PONIES. HOWEVER, MOONDANCER IS BEST PONY.

I LOVE KITTENS, AND PONIES. STYGIAN IS BEST PONY.

ALSO I REALLY DISAGREE WITH FROGBOY AND THINK HE HAS NOT BEEN ENTIRELY HONEST

I'm trying to find nice words for the sentence buck off and never return Smiley

Good luck with your diagram. I'm sorry for assuming that you wanted feedback.

As an avid listener to progressive rock and metal I should tell you that most artists that make progressive metal also make progressive rock Smiley.
Check devin townsend, ayreon, opeth etc.

But progressive rock isn't even on your list Sad

And.. putting the origin of a style after it was conceived first is really a slap in the face of the artists who started the genre.

Many studies have been devoted to that and many diagrams have already been made of it.
Also, your schema is wrong. Progressive and black metal have been around for longer than 1990 for example Smiley.

According to wikipedia, progressive metal emerged around 1990 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Progressive_metal). Black metal seems to have emerged a bit earlier, around 1985, so you are right about that.

That's because you only read the first lines of that wikipedia article. It was around before that but didn't become popular until the 90's.
