Hidden Cores On Phenom CPUs Can Be Unlocked

FonkiE try? (251 comments)

it's worth a try and running a test suite?

flawed cores can be a reason, but production simplicity is more likely...

Digitizing and Geocoding Old Maps?

FonkiE donate (235 comments)

them to a library which is specialized in that:

a) they can preserve the maps
b) you get a scan back
c) and some credit

you might not realize that even though the maps might be worth something, without proper care they will slowly dissolve.

Can We Really Tell Lossless From MP3?

FonkiE equipment (849 comments)

IRL we have headphones for $40 or the "free" ones that come with the player. or computer speakers, etc.

we have noises all around. at home. in the subway. wherever.

so honestly what does it matter. 160Kb/s aac, 192Kb/s mp3, FLAC, full PCM.

all of the 4 above sound *nearly* equally great in a "test" environment. and while walking down the steet with an mp3 player. it does not matter what of the above formats you use.

PLEASE at some point ... just enjoy the music, k?

Woman Claims Ubuntu Kept Her From Online Classes

FonkiE openoffice (1654 comments)

my sister just got openoffice right now (saves .doc as default). she is getting along fine, but every 6 months she's telling she will buy office. it's in the mind of people - not in the daily work. she can't tell me any problem she has ... just the perception :(

i'll miss his blog. biotech, computers, physics ... it was slashdot^2 ... to bad he had to close down comments a few years ago due to abuse.

he was thinking ahead of his time. i would like to be that anticipating at that age.
