Consumers Not Impressed With 3D Printing
I create 3D content with my Perl program. I am a consumer who tried the 3D printer service at the UPS Store in February, 2014. The documentation for the consumer to read does not exist. They could not print my Venus Globe as a turn-key job, so communications stopped from their end (New York City). Here are pictures of my consumer application simulation:
Conclusion: for the 3D printer retailer to get consumers to spend money, they need to tell us several facts. Facts: use one file for the 3D product. The retailer uses a certain CAD software that is disclosed to the consumer so she can duplicate a problem. The retailer runs a sanity check on the product and gives the results to the consumer, like this:
OpenSSL Cleanup: Hundreds of Commits In a Week
Open source should not imply free programmers. OpenSSL can start at $40 per hour. Please volunteer to pay them.
Samsung Claims Breakthrough In Graphene Chip Design
The expansion of carbon does not match the expansion of insulators when the temperature changes. Silicon matches the thermal size changes of silicon dioxide. If Samsung has matched the coefficients of expansion, it is big news. But that was not announced.
3D Printing: Have You Taken the Plunge Yet? Planning To?
I used 3D printers and I wrote the Perl program to make .stl files for globes of Mars and Earth :
The Perl program makes triangles for 3D printers for Venus, and the Moon too :
3D Systems was the printer manufacturer.
I have no CAD software to design, only Solidview to inspect the globes made with my Perl program. Perl is used to take a geographical database and create a 3d Printer file in .stl format for Stereolithography
Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'
Yes, this is it : the 777 is computerized, networked, and it is hackable (I speculate). The co-pilot delivered the 777 to the Taklamakan Desert . It was re-programmed to get another ID code for an aircraft. It is expected to be re-fueled and in the air tomorrow. Wales for the Welsh !
Malaysian Flight Disappearance 'Deliberate'
Look in the Taklamakan Desert, 50 miles South of the Silk Road. Or turn a blind eye to the obvious landing expanse.
Cisco Offers $300,000 Prize For Internet of Things Security Apps
This is a job for an invention using custom microprocessor instruction sets that are keyed.
For a start, see my patents :
This is a digital bunker, safer than using RISC or CISC. KISC will allow ownership as a Keyed Instruction Set Computer.
Billion Star Surveyor 'Gaia' Lifts Off
The angle of 7 u arc sec is 3.3 x10 ^-11 radians .
The distance is 4 light years x 5.87 x 10 ^12 miles per LY .
Product is 775 miles resolution of the position of a star 4 Light years away.
Astounding accuracy !! congrats !
Cassini Gets Amazing Views of Saturn's Hexagon
I predict that Saturn has clear skies under the clouds. The .gif image of 8 frames gives some support for my expectation. The rocky core is seen in the .gif and that core has clear gas all the way to the polar hole in the cloud tops. Venus has clear skies under thick clouds. Mars has clear skies under clouds. Earth has clear air under clouds. Saturn is expected also to conform to that, so I predict the cloud tops of Saturn are over a thick layer of transparent atmosphere over a rocky core that is seen in the .gif movies center.
Linking Mass Extinctions To the Sun's Journey In the Milky Way
The Dust Lanes of our galaxy are easily visible to the naked eye. But I speculate that the dust particles have sizes up to planet sized particles. In my book, "Dust Lanes", the Earth is hit by walls of rock from a dust lane with a relative speed of 5000 miles per second.
Neil deGrasse Tyson Says Private Business Will Not Open the Space Frontier
When explorers report on the X-Rays on Mars, one quantifiable risk will drive people away from investing. I have seen no report on the X-Rays that bounce up from the soil after a cosmic ray hits red dirt. It is estimated in my book: Mars Tour for New Owners. No instruments are being sent to Mars to measure that withering hazard.
What's Causing the Rise In Obesity? Everything.
For people, there are three electrical switches to turn off permanently to lose weight: the TV switch, the car switch, the refrigerator switch. After those switches disconnect electrical energy, people adapt to the situation and lose weight.
For animals, release them from cages permanently to let them get exercise and escape the urban glut.
Ask Slashdot: How Do I Request Someone To Send Me a Public Key?
Most people are too lazy and confused to use a public key cryptosystem. They need motivation to use their brains. The standard way to motivate lazy people is to pay them to lift a finger to push a few buttons.
