Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project

TheTurtlesMoves Re:that's misleading (565 comments)

You are in disagreement with experts. Like the IAEA.

Let me guess, LFTR have already done right? Wrong. It was a experimental reactor that did *no* breading. That did *no* in situ reprocessing. That didn't solve the corrosion issues, just suggested some things and on top of all that is still no fully decommissions. It was also tiny. At only 10MW.

As for TWR, well those estimates are from the company who wants to make them.

Read more serious articles and a little less LFTR fanboy sites and you would be a lot more informed.

Torvalds: I Made Community-Building Mistakes With Linux

TheTurtlesMoves Re:On the Internet, nobody can hear you being subt (387 comments)

The problem is not writing subtlety. It is other hearing/read it properly. In communication, when the goal is communication. Blunt is often the only way to be clear and understood. Your not going for the latest writing award you know.

Lockheed Claims Breakthrough On Fusion Energy Project

TheTurtlesMoves Re:that's misleading (565 comments)

Other than both have quite a lot of development work left. Like at lest 20 years or so worth. Sure. And there is no guarantee that they would be economical.

In practice you get quite a bit of neutron capture gammas.

Activation radioactivity is many orders of magnitude easier to deal with than fission waste.

FBI Says It Will Hire No One Who Lies About Illegal Downloading

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Ok, but (580 comments)

You do know that a polygraph test is bullshit. Your pass and fail is based on the charlatan running the test personal opinion of you. Casting lots, or reading tea leaves would work equally well. And if you fail. No Fed jobs for you. Ever.

X-Class Solar Flare Coming Friday

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Just as long as it's not XK-class. (145 comments)

Lucky for us, astrophysicists don't run or operate the grid. 10 years? Are you kidding me? How the hell is that credible? If that was true then it would have taken 1000 years to build the current grid. Only it didn't and most of the grid was built very very recently (Hint we use more power every year).

If Tesla Can Run Its Gigafactory On 100% Renewables, Why Can't Others?

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Not just Reno (444 comments)

People, for the most part, are perfectly rational...

WTF? No we are not. If you think your the rational one, then your either a liar or deluded. I work in Science and just as an example, the campus Pharmacy does good sales on homeopathy products!

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Not just Reno (444 comments)

GP is a well known troll on this sort of topic. Mostly just makes up facts. For example he/she once posted that Three Mile Island killed tens of thousands of people. When it comes to his/her beloved Germany. Well shesh, the solar panels will need to work at peek power even in the middle of the night to even close to a angle o sphere claim.

If Tesla Can Run Its Gigafactory On 100% Renewables, Why Can't Others?

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Not just Reno (444 comments)

First of all: we already have the spinning reserves, that are the plants replaced by renewables.

If these "replaced" plants still have to be not just online but spun up, then they are *not* replaced now are they.

Scientists don't have a private agenda....- We're all fucked.

You seem to have one. The science does not agree with your view point. No not the stuff in a news paper, the stuff in a proper peer reviewed journal.

UCLA, CIsco & More Launch Consortium To Replace TCP/IP

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Great idea at the concept stage. (254 comments)

NAT is NOT a firewall. Meaning that you haven't hid anything and you are not secure. Also NAT is a huge reason why IPSec doesn't work. It breaks the internet.

NAT is not a firewall. Guessing IPs behinds NATs is easy. IPv6 has much better solutions.

It's Dumb To Tell Kids They're Smart

TheTurtlesMoves Re:Still not adding up (243 comments)

Which isn't to say IQ is worthless, it still measures of ability.

Only in the US. Where it is mostly just a self fulfilling prophecy.

I would argue not only is that IQ as it is currently measured is worthless as it does not measure what it set out to. But also that the fundamental assumption behind it is also flawed.

It's Dumb To Tell Kids They're Smart

TheTurtlesMoves Re:What about Confidence (243 comments)

Is the result so much more important than the way to do things ?

Sometimes yes. You don't want a surgeon that is not at least bit focused on the result. Or a bridge engineer.

EU pushes Canada to drop first-sale principle

TheTurtlesMoves TheTurtlesMoves writes  |  more than 4 years ago

TheTurtlesMoves (1442727) writes "Once an artist sells a creative work, should she get a cut of any future resales of that same work? The EU says yes at least for some types of works, and it wants Canada to see things its way. I didn't even know that the EU did this. However it does not cover everything, from the article: Europe's Directive 2001/84/EC says that the right covers only "works of graphic or plastic art such as pictures, collages, paintings, drawings, engravings, prints, lithographs, sculptures, tapestries, ceramics, glassware and photographs, provided they are made by the artist himself or are copies considered to be original works of art.""
