Is my "ask slashdot" question not good enough?

Testing Geiger Counters

kiberovca Re:Samples (277 comments)

Shouldn't all of the Geiger counters come with exactly that - an small sample of radioactive material for calibration? I thought that is the norm even for today's devices. I guess the OP should ask in the shop where he/she is buying.

New Handheld Computer Is 100% Open Source

kiberovca Re:Open Pandora (195 comments)

Well, Pandora people started shipping the device. It all depends on the demand for it. If suddenly several thousand devices were to be ordered, I wonder if the Qi people would be able to supply all of the devices on demand. Since both projects are enthusiast based, I'd say the situation is still the same.

New Handheld Computer Is 100% Open Source

kiberovca Re:Open Pandora (195 comments)

So is the MIPS. I'd say there is not so much difference between the two. Yes, the Qi has all of the blueprints, but the Pandora can be actually used for a bit more than just as an example of the open design. I applaud the people behind the Qi, but the device has to be usefull too.

What about http://www.open-pandora.org/? It's a much better device than this one, has all of the stuff mentioned, and more.

Multicolored Keyless Entry System

kiberovca Re:Dads workshop (126 comments)

Actually, I remember my cousins when they were around 3 years old, they always beat the crap out of me in any kind of memory game. So saying that this lock would prevent kids to entering only shows that some people really don't understand (or have no contact whatsoever with) the kids. Or what they (the kids) are capable of.

How best to detect and display hard disk failure?

kiberovca kiberovca writes  |  about 3 years ago

kiberovca (524346) writes "I'm planning on building an home file server, and the thing that bugs me the most is — how best to detect and then display hard disk failure? I like all of those nice lights that commercial server cases have, that shows you the state of each disk, but I haven't been able to find anything like this available for purchase, or DIY. Perhaps I'm lacking the proper term for that kind of equipment, and because of that I wasn't able to find it?"
