Website Simulates Amiga OS
Anything that gets AmigaOS in the public eye is a Good Thing, in my book. My main computer is an X1000 running AmigaOS 4.1 and - with a little help from AmiCygnix - does everything I need. The website isn't a new idea, but it's still cool.
Mendeley Acquired By Elsevier
There's now a Word plug-in for Zotero. I use it for my PhD and find it extremely flexible. I have looked at Mendeley but their user support is pretty poor (maybe it is better if you upgrade to a paid account?) and unless you're running a mainstream OS, you are basically s*rewed.
Timberwolf (Firefox) Beta For AmigaOS
Timberwolf on the X1000 can't compare (yet) with Firefox on Wintel, but it's fun (and other browsers are available on the Amiga, including those running under AmiCygnix [YouTube]). And this is a work in development.
The more alternatives there are to the mainstream OSes, the better!
Ancient Puzzle Gets New Lease on 'Geomagical' Life
Yes, but they want to express it as 3.3^3 to bring out the relationship with a 3.3 shape (ie, a square). (You are reading "3.3" as "3 multiplied by 3", aren't you?)
New UK Initiative - Make Science Easier
Mmmm, the answer to 39 in the article is "A".
But like the parent post, I'd got the answer to 34 wrong. I think you're right that the graph is meant to indicate the core starts at around 2800km but it's hardly obvious. What surprised me more was that 1274s wasn't one of the options as I would happily have picked that!
