Interviews: Ask What You Will of Paleontologist Jack Horner

Zurk Thick Atmosphere Theory ? (208 comments)

What is your opinion of the thick atmosphere theory which would render resurrecting an actual dinosaur impossible (i.e. it would explode due to the pressure differential) ? The theory with proof is posted at :

Ask Slashdot: A Cheap, DIY Home Security and Surveillance System?

Zurk Defense in depth, physical security first always (508 comments)

You need to adopt a defense in depth approach similar to computer security.
First you need to block all breakins through windows. install aluminum shutters on all your windows from the inside with remote motors. These run about $200 including labor for a window, manufactured in germany and installed locally.
Then replace your doors with steel commercial fire rated doors. these are over an inch thick and put digital locks on the doors, preferably Kaba Mas which are DoD compliant. The doors run around $1000 including labor.
Thirdly put IP cameras with built in recording. DVRs are too easy to steal. Use Trendnet IP522Ps with built in SD cards. You can also use axis. Make sure you cover all approaches and remove any trees shrubs etc.
Make sure you have 6 ft high fences around your property or whatever the highest available fence height is from your local minicipal regs. behind the fence create a 4 ft buffer zone and plant cacti such as ocotillo. This will deter fence jumpers.
Finally put a vista 20P alarm system you can get cheaply off ebay for $250 or so with panel alarm and sensors. The motion detectors are $10 - $20, the glass break sensors are cheap and door sensors are like $5. Install a GSM board and find a cheap local security company to monitor it.

Seismologist Manslaughter Trial Begins Next Week

Zurk brilliant piece of legal work (185 comments)

For all the non lawyers at /. this may seem a travesty but this is such a brilliant piece of legal work by the prosecutor. Not only has he become famous -- instantly, he has a shot at changing the way the country functions and has managed to get untouchable people to be touched. Plus he has managed to get attention from the international community and the heads of his state. I expect that he has a good shot at putting the scientists behind bars after which he will move on to a well deserved legal career as a lawmaker. Expect solid career advancement as he might end up in the Italian cabinet one day.
Consider the response of all the international media AND the scientist organizations -- Scientists prosecuted for failed earthquake predictions. OMG !
Consider what is actually in the prosecutors complaint -- Scientists failed to communicate risks clearly as per their legal duties, which were attached to them as a result of their jobs.
A truly brilliant prosecution. With a good shot at changing the planet in a small way. With a tiny lever, great changes can be achieved.

Robert X Cringely Predicts More Mininuke Plants

Zurk NO.. just NO. STUPID IDEA. (430 comments)

the toshiba 4S is a sodium metal reactor. take that and shove it 30m underground to produce 10MW of power. awesome.
until you factor in the earthquake and tsunami.
water + sodium = BIG BOOM.
and the fact that regulatory approvals take a shitload of time for EACH reactor.
and you need 1200 of them to even come close to meeting demand.
and 1200 x 100s of days of regulatory paperwork is much more than 2-4 conventional plants with 100s of days of paperwork each.
not to mention environmental impact assessments at EACH SITE for EACH of those 1200 reactors.

the toshiba design needs to use lead and be rebuilt. the legal process needs to change which will take longer than it takes to build conventional plants. in short... NO.

NASA Buys 12 Seats On Soyuz

Zurk so what ? (236 comments)

and achieve what exactly ? whats so disconcerting about it ?
yay we dont shuttle your half assed astronauts to low earth orbit so they can sit there and stare out at the earth from the ISS portholes for six months at a shot.
big whoop.
its not like the ISS is doing anything critical or military related. the military stuff will still launch on delta iv heavy boosters off vandy or the cape.
the ISS can also sit there parked in orbit for years with no one on board. its not like its going to fall down cuz joe blow astronaut was not up there to go out and shove it back up the gravity well or something. hell there were plans to shut the whole stupid lame ass project down anyway. its a white elephant. no commercial value, minimal scientific value compared to robotic probes and basically worthless for long term space exploration due to its placement in low earth orbit.
now build a tanking platform with robotic spacecraft construction/assembly/food production/power generation/roid mining gear at lagrange points l1/l2 for staging earth/moon/mars/europa missions and that makes much more sense.

Encrypting Phone Storage and Transmission? (2011 Version)

Zurk Solution. (198 comments)

I have the same problem. I am not in a restrictive country, however my phone lines are tapped on a regular basis since i deal with defendants. its not paranoia -- they really do tap phones of attorneys to get around atty/client and ive seen the records more than once. I use an SSH connection to a tomatousb router (ASUS RT-N16) and forward ports to my N810. you can do the same with your N900. this allows me to do VOIP directly and also share the same connection locally by letting my N810 serve as a local hotspot. All traffic is encrypted with SSH until it reaches my home which is on a dynamic ip anyway. This has worked against local and fed agencies but may not work against NSA/big brother type agencies or against foreign government state departments. You need a fast upload connection (my 25/2 Mbps cable connection works fine). For anything more than the usual calls i meet people in person at the office. meeting in person is covered by priv and works well.

Two-way Radio Breakthrough To Double Wi-Fi Speeds

Zurk Actual information (244 comments)

How this actually works :
The Challenge in Achieving Full-Duplex

The problem that has historically prevented full-duplex is that, when a node transmits, its own signal is millions of times stronger than other signals it might hear: the node is trying to hear a whisper while shouting. The challenge is canceling the node's own transmitted signal (shout) from what it receives (whisper). Existing approaches, such as digital cancellation and noise cancellation circtuis, can cancel some of the transmitted signal, reducing its strength, but not enough to make a node able to receive.

Antenna Cancellation

Our design uses two transmit antennas one receive antenna per node. The transmit antennas send the same data and the receive antenna is placed such that there is destructive interference from the two transmit antennas, thus reducing self-interference. Offsetting the two transmit signals by half of the wavelength causes them to cancel each other, creating a null position where the transmitted signal is much, much weaker.

Combining antenna cancellation with cancellation through a noise cancellation circuit gives ~50dB reduction in self-interference before the RF signal is demodulated and sampled to the digital domain. Digital cancellation removes the residual interference.

Remote Control Worms With Laser Light, Using FOSS

Zurk Re:Big Deal. What I want to know is, (78 comments)

do you have a map of the neuron connections mapping which neuron does what and how ?
I think it would be helpful to have a graphical map which shows the pathways for each function and how the light activates them.
also is there any good mapping of what an individual worm neuron does ? how does it use chemical and electrical functions to execute commands.

Single-Player Game Model 'Finished,' Says EA Exec

Zurk retarded EA exec says PC games are finished. (439 comments)

wasnt EA one of the slave shops who claimed PC gaming was finished too ?
hint to EA execs :
DO NOT WANT stupid asshats and 12 year olds who whine incessantly in your spyware laden voip enabled gaming franchises.
DO WANT games which are engaging, fun and can be picked up with no significant time investment.
DO NOT WANT incessantly annoying DRM which requires online servers AND a CD in the drive to validate the game is "legal". Oh and typing in a 80 digit serial number.
DO WANT games which have a compelling storyline, decent graphics with no advert ware built in and are engrossing enough to keep people occupied for the 60 bux you charge which is more than movies, theatres and any other reasonable form of alternative entertainment costs.
DO NOT WANT monthly fees ON TOP of the 60 bux you charge for the game.
DO WANT to resell games once I have finished plowing through your inevitably buggy DRM infested pile of franchised crapware.

Stuxnet Still Out of Control At Iran Nuclear Sites

Zurk Re:The difference engineering makes (361 comments)

and what gave you the impression i dont ? If the SCADA systems interfacing to the PLC werent infected stuxnet would never have been able to reprogram the PLCs. Are you claiming Siemens' WinCC/PCS 7 on Windows platforms was NOT infected by stuxnet ? or that infecting the equivalent of s7otbxbx.dll on a unix would ever have been possible without root privileges ?
Maybe you should reevaluate your own knowledge of SCADAs and PLC systems.

Stuxnet Still Out of Control At Iran Nuclear Sites

Zurk Re:The difference engineering makes (361 comments)

the difference is basic stupidity. It was PHB stupidity which made the SCADA systems run windows - an operating system so unreliable the majority of servers are running a homegrown unix (linux) to ensure stability. If you insist on building your industrial infrastructure out of paper and cardboard, you should assume the first hurricane to come along will blow over your origami construction. A decent airgapped SCADA system running on any decent unix (heck just use a bunch of sun enterprise boxes on solaris to run it) would never be vulnerable to this sort of an attack. Build your industrial infrastructure on industrial equipment or face the consequences. since when is windows certified for running anything much less nuclear plants ???

Doubling of CO2 Not So Tragic After All?

Zurk Re: Hopefully (747 comments)

Without ideology we wouldn't have the scientific method.

I find it strange that people think the scientific method is based on a philosophy or ideology. What scientists do is no different from what us common folk do when we debug a program or try to fix a mechanical system: you notice something funny (program gives wrong result, car won't start, water rising in basement) so you or the called-in expert speculates on the cause and then proceed on the basis of that speculation. If the facts don't bear it out, you pause, scratch your head and come up with a new speculation. Repeat as needed.

AFAICT even the most uneducated of us operate the same way in whatever we do. I suspect it's instinct, or at least such a basic result of the exercise of intelligence that no intelligent species could avoid operating that way.

thats interesting. where do you suppose the speculation come from ? only prior experience/learning ? or somewhere else ?

The Spread of Do-It-Yourself Biotech

Zurk Re:Just great... (206 comments)

easiest would probably be modifying an existing virus to be more virulent and have longer incubation periods. a blood borne disease turned into an airborne disease would be far more effective, particularly with HIVs long incubation periods. Africa is a good example with most over 30 having AIDS and decimating the working class.

3. tv + blu ray players
4. large wallscreen with cool maps for impressing clients
5. 2 machines on each desk - one for entertainment, the other for continuous display of net stats and ssh
6. central server with helpdesk ticket display and network map with the ability to switch it to the wallscreen
7. multiple zone climate control with controls on the wall easily accessible
8. fridge with healthy snacks + microwave
9. water dispenser
10. cleaning staff for once/day cleaning.

Why Linux Is Not Attracting Young Developers

Zurk exactly. more exokernish. (742 comments)

right. it should be something between an exokernel and a microkernel. abstract out device drivers but keep core stuff in the microkernel like cpu drivers and memory access. something where people can own the device but not screw around with the machine itself. the usb userspace driver model is a great example. now if we can only abstract out everything without ending up with HURD like idiots running the show.

Why Linux Is Not Attracting Young Developers

Zurk linux should be like HURD (742 comments)

linux should become more modular ... dare say like HURD where individual contributors can own their own slice completely and implement it the way they want as plugin modules rather than monolithic blocks. yes i know about the whole kernel wars but linux grown up. its time for it to be a microkernel and attract developers for long term viability. a monolithic block of code was fine to bootstrap it but not anymore. we have multicore processors with fat pipes ... things microkernels were built for. ipc overhead is negligible if your ipc is your L3 cache.

Toyota's Engineering Process and the General Public

Zurk Re:Yes, interesting. (345 comments)

The gilbert problem is the reading from the toyota ECM when the two redundant APP (accln pedal position) signal circuits are shorted together (main and sub), From the toyota camry VSRM :
DESCRIPTION
This ETCS (Electronic Throttle Control System) does not use a throttle cable. The Accelerator Pedal Position (APP) sensor is mounted on the accelerator pedal bracket and has 2 sensor circuits: VPA (main) and VPA2 (sub). This sensor is a non-contact type, and uses Hall-effect elements, in order to yield accurate signals, even in extreme driving conditions, such as at high speeds as well as very low speeds. The voltage, which is applied to terminals VPA and VPA2 of the ECM, varies between 0 V and 5 V in proportion to the operating angle of the accelerator pedal (throttle valve). A signal from VPA indicates the actual accelerator pedal opening angle (throttle valve opening angle) and is used for engine control. A signal from VPA2 conveys the status of the VPA circuit and is used to check the APP sensor itself. The ECM monitors the actual accelerator pedal opening angle (throttle valve opening angle) through the signals from VPA and VPA2, and controls the throttle actuator according to these signals.

FAIL-SAFE
The accelerator pedal position sensor has two (main and sub) sensor circuits. If a malfunction occurs in either of the sensor circuits, the ECM detects the abnormal signal voltage difference between the two sensor circuits and switches to limp mode. In limp mode, the functioning circuit is used to calculate the accelerator pedal opening angle to allow the vehicle to continue driving. If both circuits malfunction, the ECM regards the opening angle of the accelerator pedal as being fully closed. In this case, the throttle valve remains closed as if the engine is idling.
If a pass condition is detected and then the ignition switch is turned off, the fail-safe operation stops and the system returns to a normal condition.

VPA and VPA2 are coming from the PCM with .5-1.1v at one of the sensors and 1.2-2.0v at the other when the pedal is at its relaxed position. When there's force at the pedal, one sensor will operate between 2.6-4.5v and the other at 3.4-5.0v.

Toyota specs normal voltage for both the VPA sensors between between .4-4.8v for VPA, and .5-4.8v for VPA2 with a .2v deviation between the 2 sensors. Anything out of those ranges will trigger a DTC

An internal short could occur within one or more of the paths from the circuits leading to the ecm. That could lead to a situation where the computer cannot detect its own failure.Therefore, when the system gets conflicting information, it arbitrarily ignores half the conflicting information. It does not know which of the circuits are lying or if they both are lying and shorted together. different resistance values will lead to arbitrary acceleration. Having the brake override it is a stopgap, but fixing the real problem (perhaps with a third circuit in voting mode which will require replacing the entire circuit path) or reversed sensors or log and opposing log sensors.

There might also be emi problems with induced magnetic fields in the CTS pedal assembly which detects induced emf as acceleration since it relies on induced emf to operate in the first place and is made of plastic. replacing with conventional denso rather than cts will also help.

I suspect 2012 and onwards toyotas would have a third path and faraday cage/denso replacement for the magnet assembly in the plastic accelerator pedal (which is another problem with EMI which might lead to acceleration) which i am not going to go into here.

So, YES OP you should definitely install the update. Its the only thing standing between you and death if both the APP circuits short.

US DOJ Says Kindle In Classroom Hurts Blind Students

Zurk Re:Hmm, this seems illogical. (492 comments)

yes you should. they should be able to provide you a device to give you captions for the duration of the movie. its the cost of doing business like handicap signs and wheelchair accessible entry locations.
this is not an inconvenience that 0.1% of the population are hoisting on 99.9% of the population. This is a necessary affirmation that the majority will take care of the minority when the minority needs help to function in society. it is a recognition that we do not leave people behind just because they are disabled and we cater to those who need it. I am completely in agreement with the DoJ here. Civilization demands a higher standard from those who would introduce devices such as the kindle without making additional services available to help the less fortunate. If you are going to introduce e-readers in PUBLIC SCHOOLS then you damn well provide handicap accessible services to the public as a cost of doing business just like the school does or you leave the business to someone who can.
