The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. micro

    1. Very small; this is the root of its use as a quantifier prefix. 2. A quantifier prefix, calling for multiplication by 10-6 (see quantifiers). Neither of these uses is peculiar to hackers, but hackers tend to fling them both around rather more freely than is countenanced in standard English. It is recorded, for example, that one CS professor used to characterize the standard length of his lectures as a microcentury — that is, about 52.6 minutes (see also attoparsec, nanoacre, and especially microfortnight). 3. Personal or human-scale — that is, capable of being maintained or comprehended or manipulated by one human being. This sense is generalized from microcomputer, and is esp. used in contrast with macro- (the corresponding Greek prefix meaning ‘large’). 4. Local as opposed to global (or macro-). Thus a hacker might say that buying a smaller car to reduce pollution only solves a microproblem; the macroproblem of getting to work might be better solved by using mass transit, moving to within walking distance, or (best of all) telecommuting.

The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  4. Ryan Pack:

    Miracles: There's a lot of people in this world that don't believe in miracles. I used to be one of them. I didn't think miracles were possible, I thought they were just something somebody made up. But then something happened. I was on my way home from a Florida family vacation and I took a picture of the touchdown Jesus statue at the Solid Rock church in Monroe Ohio on March 13, 2010 and 3 months and one day later on June 14th 2010 it was struck by lightening. Most people believe that it was just bad weather or arson but I believe it was a miracle from God. The Touchdown Jesus Statue stood there since 2004 surviving many bad storms and no one ever had tampered with it before so I ask myself why all of the sudden, why only 3 months and one day after I took a picture of it? Maybe he's revealing himself to me, maybe he's communicating to me, maybe he's trying to tell me something. I had chronic incurable illnesses that the doctors couldn't cure but then all of the sudden they completely went away. I noticed something, that when I truly had faith in God's existence, the day I really believed in God, that's the day all my pain went away. I ask myself how is this possible? The doctors with medical degrees couldn't fix me, I couldn't fix me, medication couldn't fix me, so how did all my pain just go away? Well the only thing I can think of is that when I actually believed in God, the day I actually had faith in his existence it must have activated God's spiritual power and cured me, or as some would consider it a miracle. Miracles happen around us everyday, people just don't care enough, they just don't pay enough attention to see them. Some of these miracles are micro miracles aka small miracles, they may not have much effect on your life, but then there are the gigantic, life changing miracles, the ones that will change your life forever. Whether their micro miracles or gigantic life changing miracles they are very hard to see. So its going to be required that you really, really, care and pay very close attention so that way when these miracles happen you might be able to spot them. Pay attention to the rare, the uncommon, the unexplainable, events in your life, the things you don't care enough to pay attention to, the things you blow off, they might be signs, miracles from God. God might be communicating to you. God might be trying to tell you something.

  5. John McSweeney from Terry Lifts:

    If a pet or child was playing underneath the lift, you've got a safety bottom with micro-switches all over that safety bottom. So as soon as it comes in contact with any obstruction, it will immediately stop. And you have about 20 millimeters of pinch-point - so there's no mild crushing at all, it is very, very sensitive.
