Intel and SGI Test Full-Immersion Cooling For Servers

YoungManKlaus Strange method of water cooling... (101 comments)

Seriously, using the water and then dumping it? Why not just cool down the water (by using a passive radiator) and reuse it? I know at least one datacenter that does exactly this.

German Wikipedia Has Problems With Paid Editing — and Threats of Violence

YoungManKlaus So much wrong with german wikipedia (55 comments)

essentially the mods are dickheads and there is a debate about every 2nd article if it meets the importance criteria as if they had to fit the whole think on a single floppy and need to save bytes.

How Ford's Virtual Reality Lab Helps Engineers

YoungManKlaus Re:So what? (49 comments)

Apart from my other post: I think what most people are excited about is not so much the stereo vision, but that head-tracking can finally packed into the same unit with reasonable delays. Some years ago you still had to do crappy ir-cam-setups with dorky blips on your glasses for that and needed a small cluster for calculation (ok, I'm exaggerating, but you get the point)

How Ford's Virtual Reality Lab Helps Engineers

YoungManKlaus Re:So what? (49 comments)

Ack, that should have gone in quotation marks. I also remember my 1st encounter with "consumer-grade" stereo glasses back in the 90s where there was an exhibition and you could "bungee-jump" from some tower (essentially a vr-headset - from sony iirc - and you jumped from a small podest into a bungee gear ... pretty impressive effect though, at least for my 10 year old self ;)).

How Ford's Virtual Reality Lab Helps Engineers

YoungManKlaus So what? (49 comments)

Nobody ever said VR was anything new or something, its just new in the consumer field. I had an internship years ago building stuff based on a framework by Mercedes (iirc) which had awesome vr capabilities and could essentially drive you anything from a 3d-monitor to a cave-installation with back-projections on every wall

Medicine Delivered By Flying Drones

YoungManKlaus How many more articles? (43 comments)

I mean seriously, its just packing X into a box, attaching it to a drone, and setting the delivery target. Could we also get new articles every time Amazon adds a new item and ships it for the first time? "X Delivered By UPS Guy, Didn't Break It!"
