Romanian Officials Say Russia Finances European Fracking Protests

badkarmadayaccount Re:I was there - we don't need no russians (155 comments)

Yeah, but we need the money from anything we can dig up - we can't export bread, we can export gas and fuels, here is to hoping the Black sea clathrates make a big bang in a good way - bread and water a civilization doesn't make. A fellow Bulgarian.

Multiple Manufacturers Push Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, But Can They Catch Tesla?

badkarmadayaccount Re:I don't think hydrogen makes sense (293 comments)

Esters are where it's at - butyl butanoate passed military aviation standards for jet fuel and does pretty well in gasoline engines as well, and is drop in compatible - ethanol needs tweaks.

Multiple Manufacturers Push Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, But Can They Catch Tesla?

badkarmadayaccount Re:Where do you fill up? (293 comments)

Solid oxide fuel cells on CNG or other hydrocarbons are a good contender for a series hybrid power plant at a 40 kW power rating. Check out the latest Ce(IV) oxide doped ceramics with internal reforming, really cool. BEVs FTW, though.

Debian Talks About Systemd Once Again

badkarmadayaccount Re:Hope! (522 comments)

Ugly syntax, race conditions, lack of cross distro portability, too many fork()s, binding of the implementation identifier of a service to the interface identifier.

What's Been the Best Linux Distro of 2014?

badkarmadayaccount Re:Qubes-OS.org (303 comments)

There a lot of not really thought out bits delving in, but yes, I think it's the only real security distribution (as in minimal attack surface). Fedora based, pretty neat.

ECS A530, Transmeta CPU - operating sytem advice

badkarmadayaccount badkarmadayaccount writes  |  more than 4 years ago

badkarmadayaccount writes "I have a friend proud new owner of such a machine, though it's loaded with XP SP3 — not exactly a justice to it. I am considering WinFLP, though I would like to put linux on it, I can't seem to find a userfriendly lightweight distro for it — Fedora kernel panics on boot, apparently an issue with a missing instruction in the CMS, and Ubuntu as well claims being an i686 distro. Maybe mint? But I don't think I can rely on my judgement for this — that's why I'm turning to you, slashdot."

A poem from last saturday

badkarmadayaccount badkarmadayaccount writes  |  more than 3 years ago

Let the cold and wet earth open its womb -
from chaos, into chaos, we fly.
Let the cold entropy freeze
and spread all my pain into
a thousand icy crystals - nevermore to exist
in my reality - nevermore to exist,
but as dissolving traces of life
unto the heat death of the universe.
Let the zero point fluctuations drown out
the beating of my broken heart -
past, present, and future -
maybe if it never was, and never will be
in this light cone,
the light fantastic -
the light beyond the darkness -
will shine and freeze the pain.
