Rocket Thrusters Used To Treat Sewage

MadKatAlpha Generate their own power... (73 comments)

I'm confused that the article thinks that this is a new concept. Many wastewater treatment plants already make use of the methane gas for on-site power generation. For example, East Bay MUD in California generates 90% of its power requirements at the primary treatment plant.

The Shortcomings of Google's Open Handset Alliance

MadKatAlpha What did you expect? (208 comments)

Did anyone really expect the OHA to be a real collaborative effort? By getting the big names on the OHA list you bolster OEM and consumer confidence in Google's platform. It doesn't really matter if the members of the OHA have not made any meaningful contributions other than their names. The names were enough to get the product out and get people using it.

How To Survive a Patent Challenge?

MadKatAlpha I regret to inform you... (221 comments)

Sir, I regret to inform you that I already have a software patent on nifty applications that help run personal businesses and those that may be used to help run almost any business. You should look elsewhere for idea inspirations. Please note that I also hold patents on items that are useful around the house, training routines that make your dog less of a jerk and design patents on expensive machines that go "bing!"

Best Mouse For Programming?

MadKatAlpha Evoluent Vertical Mouse (569 comments)

Evoluent Vertical Mouse

If you have to use a mouse, it might as well be one that isn't going to destroy your wrist.

It might clash with your stereotypical clicky keyboard but it'll fit right in with that ergonomic keyboard that you actually use.

MadKatAlpha MadKatAlpha writes  |  about 5 years ago Here I was, looking through the Slashdot Achievement system, thinking to myself, "Seriously? WTF?", when I noticed that there was an achievement for posting a journal entry. This seemed reasonable enough. Until it struck me. "Slashdot has a journal system? Really?". So here I am. Filling out a basically useless entry all for that extra little achievement point.
