If you're setting your own wi-fi connection, will you have to pay for it continuously, or is it a single payment?

^ I believe it is every month that you have to pay for the internet.

Question:


I managed to get the second derivative, but is this correct?

Yes that is f''(x). Though, a simpler way to check these things is one of the many amazing wolfram alpha widgets, like this fella : http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i...ive+calculator.

How do you get the inflection point though?

It is a forex broker. Unless you want to trade forex, it is useless.

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

What priveleges does a forum admin or mod have? And how can one forum member be promoted to a moderator? Just curious.

This is cover in the FAQ.

We change their user group. It is a completely manual process. When we do it and what prompts the decision (which I think is what you're really asking) depends on the circumstances. If we feel we need more moderators, we'll reach out to people we think will help. This is also mentioned in the FAQ.

In Non Non Biyori subs they used "sticks"... I assume that means countryside. So why I have never heard "sticks" before?

Different translators use different lingo dependant on where they're from. Can't think of any deeper reason.

I don't know about the specific subtitle example you are citing, but your hunch about the countryside reference is entirely plausible. Just look up the term "in the sticks"; though I'm guessing you already have if you hadn't heard the expression before.

I would think you know the answer to that better than anyone? It might have something to do with it being a British idiom that isn't used that often (though I'm sure it is used in the US too). We have a lot of them; if you've not lived in the UK or consumed much British media there are probably many such things you won't have heard. I imagine Portugal has such expressions too; and many of us in the UK will be similarly unfamiliar with them.

It is indeed used in the U.S..

There are a fair amount of slang terms every language has.

Another slang term for the countryside is "the boondocks", for example, which gets shortened to "the boonies", for example.

I think I've first heard the expression used in American media actually. To give a Portuguese translation it would probably be "atrás do sol posto" (literally beyond the setting sun )

I am 33 year old and I have been consuming media for long and this is my 1st time I have seen the "In the sticks" refering to countryside. Well I guess we are always learning something new.

Silly question, how brutal was Oda Nobunaga?

I seem to see a lot of Japanese anime feature/reference to the guy. I can understand he appear to be a good politician/general that almost united Japan, but there is little mentioned of his personal quirks.

Is anime mass white-washed his brutal ways, or he wasn't that bad of a person?

Well, it's complicated, as with many historical figures of his prominence. He had to claw his way to the top of his clan due to a power struggle following his father's death, which inevitably involved killing fellow clan members.

He also massacred all the inhabitants of a Buddhist settlement that opposed him during one of his campaigns.

On the other hand, he had a unique personality and was interested in the arts, western knowledge, etc. Beyond just his historical significance in beginning unification, he's a pretty fascinating figure, so his prominence in Japanese cultural memory is understandable.

Am I handsome?Just kidding.

Just want to ask, how does force ratio (don't know the right term) works? I've been reading some historical wars and battles and, most of the times, it describes the ratio of opposing forces like, 3 to 1 for a successful defense or attack, or being outnumbered 10 to 1.
