Problem Solver Beer Tells How Much To Drink To Boost Your Creativity
I remember discussing Beer's Law in chemistry over a few. You have a fine line between more creativity and where the extinction coefficient takes over and you blotto. A couple does help the conversation and helps people that are reserved share their ideas and help stimulate more discussion. So I do think it helps group creativity. (Oh you mean drinking?)
Doubling Saturated Fat In Diet Does Not Increase It In Blood
... that the Firesign Theater was right.
Everything you know is wrong.
Hell, I learned that in P-Chem, but I suppose I am some sort of bozo.
FreeBSD 10.1 Released
which itself is descended from Version 7 Unix, although since 4.4BSD-Lite there's no real Unix code any longer.
Been a while since I used Version 7, but it is what I learned Unix on. The command list was a lot easier to learn then. BSD still feels the same from the command line. :)
Philae's Batteries Have Drained; Comet Lander Sleeps
While the main battery is nearly depleted and at this point there is not enough solar power striking the solar panels to boot it back up, as the comet approaches the sun the light intensity should go up. We can hope that the existing conditions provide enough power to prevent damage to the landers electronics. Then as the comet approaches the sun and the comet either changes origination to provide more light or just Philae get more intense light it may rise again. That would be grand!

My name is Sue, how do you do.
Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project
And yet another interesting similar story. This from the University of Washington who has their own new fusion reactor design. http://www.electronics-eetimes...
Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project
I think this AvWeek story http://aviationweek.com/techno... is a better description, but then Aviation Week has more technical writers..
U2 and Apple Collaborate On 'Non-Piratable, Interactive Format For Music'
Since audio can always be picked up, and so pirated, this must not involve audio. It must be a new Apple technology where the music is "beamed" into your body. This will be a whole new experience and we will need to upgrade all our music and Apple devices to experience it. Get in line now. Here is all my money, how many can I buy....
Treasure Map: NSA, GCHQ Work On Real-Time "Google Earth" Internet Observation
While I am sure this is a project that will earn millions of dollars for some companies and promotions for individuals, I am not sure how successful you can be at mapping everything. I would imagine more than half of the Internet is hidden behind various NAT boxes. Even with the help of folks like Comcast, CenturyLink, Verizon, AT&T, and the rest of our friends who might help the NSA and GCHQ; we still have businesses, colleges and universities, and most households with most of their computers hidden behind NAT. Maybe when IPv6 becomes ubiquitous it might be possible. I agree with a earlier post too much data, no enough content.
Sources Say Amazon Will Soon Be Targeting Ads, a la Google AdWords
I though they were already doing this. They were failing if they were missing this opportunity. What do people expect? (Do I like it? meh. I don't like being profiled. It could make buying easier.)
Scientists Find Traces of Sea Plankton On ISS Surface
First plankton, and you know what eats plankton, barnacles. I wouldn't want to have to scrape down the ISS. No wonder they are talking about abandoning the ISS in a few years.
Twitter Reports 23 Million Users Are Actually Bots
Frigging bots. They forget when they post and sometime you get a dup.
Comcast Customer Service Rep Just Won't Take No For an Answer
I bet when they apologized to him they offered him 1/2 price service for 3 months.
OpenWRT 14.07 RC1 Supports Native IPv6, Procd Init System
I have had a TP-Link WDR3600 for about 7 months. About 4 months ago I decided I wanted to start doing ipv6 and the TP-Link software didn't work with Comcast for ipv6. I found a pre-release of Barrier Breaker loaded it up, rebooted and it all worked. I guess it is time to upgrade to the release candidate. There were some issues with the second radio and supporting 802.11an but a few minutes searching on line and I had fix for that too.
Sand-Based Anode Triples Lithium-Ion Battery Performance
Silica is a well known carcinogen. http://ntp.niehs.nih.gov/ntp/r... Our lab will not be messing with that shit, we will be looking for something safer! And if silica was in commercial batteries think how many members of the public might be exposed.
EDSAC Diagrams Rediscovered
So the they get a few prints of part of the circuits, 9 pages of 150, and they see they made mistakes replicating the original. I wonder how many other mistakes they have made, and what happens if they are finishing and some more drawings surface showing they got stuff wrong? Will they throw it out the wrong and make it as designed or just say "hey good enough, we got most of it right"?
Washington Redskins Stripped of Trademarks
Ok, I am invoking "Godwin's Law", let's move on. I can't believe the Washington Redskins was meant as an insult. Who would do that to their team, but we have gotten deep in to political correct in this country. (Boy it is a good thing we don't have gender modifiers on most of our nouns. There would be a battle.)
Kids With Operators Manual Alert Bank Officials: "We Hacked Your ATM"
they had the manual with passwords....
this is hacked.... how?
Same way I hacked my VCR so it doesn't flash 12:00 anymore!
Covering the blinking clock with black tape doesn't count, sorry.
Four Weeks Without Soap Or Shampoo
The problem there isn't the lack of showers but the repeated use of clothing.
But then you have CEO of Levi Strauss saying don't wash your jeans. http://www.latimes.com/fashion... I guess its back to nature time. I hope the windows open for a fresh breeze...
