• Know any Android calendar apps with a strong reminder that requires action?

    I miss too many meetings because reminders on my Outlook desktop typically pop behind other applications or in the corner of my vision, and my phone just does a little buzz for a reminder. When I'm focused on working I don't notice time going by and it takes a fire alarm to get my attention. Are there any Android calendar apps with a... show more
    I miss too many meetings because reminders on my Outlook desktop typically pop behind other applications or in the corner of my vision, and my phone just does a little buzz for a reminder. When I'm focused on working I don't notice time going by and it takes a fire alarm to get my attention. Are there any Android calendar apps with a strong reminder feature that buzzes non stop until I actively turn it off? Thanks.

  • Can i make a black and tan with coors light?

    I have some cans of Coors light and some cans of Guinness. I'm pretty good at making black and tans with a variety of beers for the tan part, but I've never tried a light beer... Until today.

    I have some cans of Coors light and some cans of Guinness. I'm pretty good at making black and tans with a variety of beers for the tan part, but I've never tried a light beer... Until today. They tried for a few seconds to stay in their respective phases, but then mixed into a dark colored concoction. It has a very nice Guinness foam on the top, but the liquid is practically undrinkable. I want to try it again because maybe I just rushed the pour, but I don't want to drink another mistake. I don't even want to drink a success actually, its just a bad idea, but curious if anyone else tried this and made it work.

  • Why are automatically implemented properties useful in C#?

    C# has automatically implemented properties so that I can write public class Person { public String name {get; set;} } class Program { static void Main() { Person p1 = new Person(); p1.name = "John"; Console.WriteLine(p1.name); } } If I change "public String name... show more
    C# has automatically implemented properties so that I can write public class Person { public String name {get; set;} } class Program { static void Main() { Person p1 = new Person(); p1.name = "John"; Console.WriteLine(p1.name); } } If I change "public String name {get; set;}" to just "public String name;" it runs the same. I understand that it creates a variable in the background _name, I've read lots of examples of what it's doing in the background. But what's the point? What is the advantage? Thanks.

  • Trying to make 36 unique teams from 24 people with no 2 people playing together twice?

    I have 24 people doing 6 activities in teams of 4. We'll do 6 rounds so everybody does each activity. Is there a way to divide it up so that everybody is at some point on a team with every other person, or maximize combinations so that two people aren't together on a team more than once? I keep trying to work it out on a spreadsheet and... show more

  • Permutations question?

    If I throw 3 darts at a board that has a Red, a Green, and a Blue circle, Red is worth 100, Green is worth 50, and Blue is worth 10, how many possible distinct scores can I get? There are 10... RGB, RRG, RRB, GGR, GGB, BBR, BBG, RRR,GGG,BBB. But I got that just by inspection, is there a way to calculate it using permutations? Thanks.
