Solar Roadways Project Beats $1M Goal, Should Enter Production

NotWallaceStevens Cost and Practice (311 comments)

This notion appears cost-prohibitive and I don't believe they mention cost studies in their video presentation. In addition, we don't seem to be maintaining the road infrastructure we have, which is based on a much simpler technology. In practice, this new solar road infrastructure would appear to require considerably more than we are unable to devote now.

NotWallaceStevens Re:The Book. (684 comments)

For throwaway one-time reads that's OK by me. For writing with more staying power, though, that's a damned shame,

NoScript Adds Subscriptions To Adblock Plus

NotWallaceStevens Made a mistake, fixed it (408 comments)

Noscript is a great add-on, and performs a valuable function. They made a mistake, and fixed it. So I am keeping Noscript, and also whitelisting it in ABP. For what they do, as well as for fixing their error, they maintain my trust.

Windows Vista SP1 Meeting Sour Reception In Places

NotWallaceStevens Re:And the problem is...? (501 comments)

Newer Intel motherboard, uses Sigmatel audio, SP1 is not compatible with the latest drivers available through Intel. SP1 has been available for compatibility testing for how long, and Microsoft and Intel can't come up with a compatible sound driver? That seems like a great sign to me that Vista really is dead, the new Millennium Edition is upon us.
