Anti-Piracy Dog Uncovers Huge Cache of Discs

Jasper__unique_dammi Not from the onion? (283 comments)

No, the dog cannot smell the difference between copyright infringement, and regular baked CDs. (Often mistaken with piracy, despite the lack of taking ships with the use of force and the lack of raping.) This looks like they just made a premise to allow them police to search any house which happens to have written to rw cds/dvds, however, the bbc story implies that these dogs are for searching for more mass-production of cd/dvd writing.

Laser Blast Makes Regular Light Bulbs Super-Efficient

Jasper__unique_dammi Re:Surprising, actually... (559 comments)

Guessing it is because spectral absorption, reflection and transmission factor can vary over different frequencies. So basically they lower the transmission factor for frequencies that are not wanted. (I think.. Dammit i should know more)

Laser Blast Makes Regular Light Bulbs Super-Efficient

Jasper__unique_dammi Re:Surprising, actually... (559 comments)

So you get how this works? I thought things like these were supposed to be in the lines of black body radiation? How can they paint it and expect the useless lower and higher -then visual frequencies to disappear? Are some of those somehow absorbed again before escaping, or something? Basically i am asking, how does it work :)

How Do I Put an Invention Into the Public Domain?

Jasper__unique_dammi Anyone ever tried 'buy free' patents? (233 comments)

The idea is simple; invent something, patent it, and allow no-one to use it until someone pays the fee, but once it is payed, everyone can use it.

Efficiency Gains Could Prove Proposed Plasma Ban Shortsighted

Jasper__unique_dammi Re:Not banning plasmas. (278 comments)

What you are not mentioning is externalization. The cost of political tensions over resources like gas, oil, and nuclear products. (Well, not coal at this point.) Nor are the emmisions paid for.(Well, only somewhat with emmisions trading.) Also, as order people said, often people don't look at power costs well enough. (Although there is a rating for how much energy a product uses.)
