Ask Slashdot: Rugged E-book Reader?

fhknack Ebook readers are one-trick ponies (126 comments)

I loved my Amazon Kindle. For about 3 weeks, after which it broke. It wasn't abused; I just wasn't willing to spend another 30% of the purchase price for a cover. I replaced it with a smartphone and haven't missed the Kindle since.

Heathkit DIY Kits Are Coming Back

fhknack 70cm Ham Radio needed (197 comments)

Sweet! For the two-and-a-half years since I earned my Ham license, I have been singularly unable to find a kit for making a transmitter I could use. I can re-learn to read circuit diagrams, etc., but designing and building a radio from scratch is too far beyond my current skills.

Scientists Aim To Improve Photosynthesis

fhknack Why hasn't Nature done this already? (156 comments)

I'm no botanist, but I've seen Japanese maples and rainbow Swiss chard. I've also read enough Dawkins and Ridley to understand that even extremely complex biological evolution is not only possible but inevitable. If photosynthesis can be improved, it probably would have been. If we increase photosynthetic efficiency, what are we trading? TAANSTAFL, and all that.

Spamming the Globe! I also still have a Furr era BOFH t-shirt in the drawer for when I want to piss off little old ladies at the grocery store.
