Life and Work On the LHC At CERN

The -e**(i*pi) Re:mythbusters have to test the 87kg of TNT part n (81 comments)

They did a test and the beam vaporized like a 40 M long copper tube a mm wide or so.
Now they have a large graphite tube encased in like a foot of concrete to stop the beam and they scan the beam across it so it heats up evenly.

Best Practices For Infrastructure Upgrade?

The -e**(i*pi) Re:I'd say (264 comments)

that is an awesome deal.
One thing to worry about with old P4 stuff is how much power it will use. Each of those uses probably $15 or more each month in electricity depending on where you live. It probably does not come out of your IT budget, but it still costs the company money.

Best Practices For Infrastructure Upgrade?

The -e**(i*pi) Re:I'd say (264 comments)

I doubt with only 150 people they would want to spend the money to have a server at every office in case that offices link went down. I agree wholeheartedly that the level of redundancy talked about is overkill. Also will WWW, mail, DNS, ... even work if the line is cut regardless if the server is in the building?

I remember from my psychology class that what religion you follow has no heritability, but how religious you are is at least partially heritable.

Also, Intelligence has a negative correlation between children and parents, at least according to Wikipedia.
