Come Try Out Slashdot's New Design (In Beta)

GlowingCat Current is much easier to read (1191 comments)

I believe Slashdot has more intellectual readers than many other news sites. Big images only get in the way of reading about the subjects. That's why I much prefer the current design.

MenuetOS 0.99.26 released

GlowingCat GlowingCat writes  |  about 10 months ago

GlowingCat (2459788) writes "MenuetOS, 64bit assembly written OS for x86, was recently released.
Additions include USB support ranging from webcam and printer to
digital TV-tuner. Menuet has realtime transparency for GUI, which
is calculated in the main CPU, so no special compatibility with graphics
cards is needed. 0.99.26 inludes also support for SMP and mathematical
functions, like FFT."

Neutrino experiment replicates faster-than-light f

GlowingCat GlowingCat writes  |  more than 2 years ago

GlowingCat (2459788) writes "Physicists have replicated the finding that the subatomic particles called neutrinos seem to travel faster than light. It is a remarkable confirmation of a stunning result, yet most in the field remain sceptical that the ultimate cosmic speed limit has truly been broken.

The collaboration behind the experiment, called OPERA (Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tracking Apparatus), made headlines in September with its claim that a beam of neutrinos made the 730-kilometre journey from CERN, Europe's particle-physics lab near Geneva in Switzerland, to the Gran Sasso National Laboratory near L'Aquila, Italy, faster than the speed of light. The result defies Albert Einstein’s special theory of relativity, which states that this cannot happen."
