Recently, I read a research paper by Professor Manu Prakash from Stanford who has been working on a computer that works on fluid droplets and it is extremely fascinating.


Manipulating Matter

Inspiration: The computers that we have at our home are capable of manipulating Information, but they cannot manipulate Physical matter per se! Ergo, build a device that could process both information and physical matter simultaneously.

The setup is actually relatively simple to understand but the working is a bit tricky. They use a ferrofluid as the droplet and control the way it behaves with a circular magnetic field.

Through the coupling of magnetic and hydrodynamic interaction forces between droplets, AND,OR,XOR,NOT and NAND logic gates, fanouts, full adder, a flip flop and a finite state machine is implemented.

If this is the sort of thing that you are interested in, I strongly recommend you read their paper.


The bigger goal

“We already have digital computers to process information. Our goal is not to compete with electronic computers or to operate word processors on this,”

Prakash said. “Our goal is to build a completely new class of computers that can precisely control and manipulate physical matter. Imagine if when you run a set of computations that not only information is processed but physical matter is algorithmically manipulated as well. We have just made this possible at the mesoscale.”

Have a great day!

“For A Number Of Reasons”/”It’s Complicated”・いろいろあって

いろいろあって (iroiro atte) literally means “(met with) various reasons”, and is used when you can’t describe the reasons for your actions because it’s complicated or because you don’t want to talk about it. 

It can be a phrase on it’s own or in a sentence (at the beginning, usually):

最近いろいろあって宿題をやらない。Saikin iroiro atte shukudai o yaranai.
Recently I haven’t been doing my homework for a number of reasons.

Maybe the person has been busy with extracurriculars, is too depressed to do anything, or has been sick. We don’t know. We just know that they haven’t been doing homework for some reasons they don’t feel like explaining.

なんで仕事辞めるの? Nande shigoto yameru no?
いろいろあって。iroiro atte.
- Why‘d you quit your job? (lit. why resign work?)
- It’s a long story/a lot of reasons/it’s complicated.

なんで別れるの?Nande wakareru no?
いろいろあって。iro iro atte.
- Why’d you guys break up? (lit. why break up?)
- It’s a long story/a lot of reasons/it’s complicated.

*THIS IS IMPORTANT!*
If you ask someone something and they reply with “いろいろあって"、then they don’t want to talk about it!
This is pretty much the english equivalent of “I don’t wanna talk about it”. Don’t ask them more questions on the subject if they answer with this, unless they decide to tell you the reasons voluntarily.
And vice versa, if you give someone that answer, they’re probably not going to ask you about it anymore.

If you can’t access your ACNL game after hacking

This is from the save editor’s FAQ page! Hopefully this can help people who are locked out of their games.

Q: The game says my savegame data is corrupted. What happened? Can I restore my savegame?

A: That means you injected an old savegame, and the game blocked it using an anti-cheat protection system.

Do not worry, you can still restore it. You will need to update its secure NAND value.

  1. Make a backup of your old savegame you want to restore on your computer
  2. Restart your game (make a new town) and save. Export this new AC:NL savegame in JK’s save manager.
  3. Open the old garden.dat/garden_plus.dat savegame in the editor
  4. Go to the Other tab, click on the pencil next to Secure Value and load the newest garden.dat/garden_plus.dat here.
    That will turn your old savegame into a valid savegame for the console.

Alternatively you can use svdt which updates the NAND value for you.

(idk what svdt is, probably another homebrew app)

I laid beside him, first hearing him breathe in and out. His hands slid around my waist as I smiled closing my eyes too. I slowly fell asleep and woke up to him beeping in my ear

“Babe!” I whine

He chuckles, “what?” He asks

“Stop it!” I say snuggling back into the blanket

“Or what?” He asks me

I sit back up then sit on top of him making him stop laughing for the time being. He’s looked shocked but then bit his lip, I laughed and got off sliding the blanket back on me

“Oh no you don’t!” He says tickling me as I laugh and beg him to stop

He grabs my waist and scoots me over near him. I stopped laughing seeing the lust in his eyes, he grabbed my face NAND began to place kisses from my lips to my neck. A small moan left and he chuckled which snapped me out of it

“What?!” I shout

“It’s just cute seeing you like this” he says continuing to kiss me

I smirk and get on top of him once again, “and how about like this?” I ask kissing him then tugging the bottom of his lip

“You’re making me crazy” he says in a husky voice that drives me insane

“How crazy?” I ask

“I’ll show you” he says sliding my shirt over my head and onto the bed then unclasping my bra His head reaches down to my breast,

“Fuck” I say
“Now for some fun” Kian says flipping me over which caught me by surprise
He held my waist as he positioned me to his liking. I bit my lip knowing how he was slowly turning into his rough self

His lips reached my near as he whispered, “now, you’re going to listen to me alright baby? Or else there will be some consequences” he says I nod my head and he continues to look at the imagine,

“My god you’re beautiful” he says smiling

** Not sure if I’m too crazy about these but.. I guess it’s worth a try? Tell me what you think!
