Proposed Space Telescope Uses Huge Opaque Disk To Surpass Hubble

JoeIsuzu83 Re:Visible from Earth? (124 comments)

That would be perfectly normal. Lots of small satellites are visible with the naked eye at just the right time of day. If they're still in the sunlight, and you're in the dark (dusk and dawn) you can see them.

With this one being "geo-sychrounous" (probably geostationary) it would only be visible in certain locations.

Google's Business Plan For Nest: Selling Your Data To Utility Companies

JoeIsuzu83 Nest without 'net? (167 comments)

Does the Nest still work if it can't access the internet? Seems like a no-brainer to just configure your router so that it can't communicate outside your LAN.

Ask Slashdot: Linux For Grandma?

JoeIsuzu83 No Slumlord Apps (287 comments)

I would have done this for my mom, but she absolutely had to have slumlord software (she used Quicken Rental Property Manager). It was so kludgey even on WIndows, so I wasn't going to try it on Wine.
