Thermal Nanotape Promises Cooler, Healthier Chips

llamalicious High what generation now?? (48 comments)

I'm hoping the good professor was simply misquoted, shouldn't that read "high waste-heat generation"?
And could they perhaps check that SRC isn't called SCR when quoting him? /pedant

Is Internet Explorer 6/7 Support Required Now?

llamalicious Re:Yes and No (512 comments)

You have to look past the numbers, it isn't a matter of being "dead", it's a matter of weighing the cost of supporting IE6 specific code against an increasingly small number of users.

Even though your stats indicate Opera and Safari are in the same percentile for your site, they'll render standards compliant content without HTML/CSS/JS specifically written for either one.

If any of my sites had less than 10% of IE6 traffic, I'd stop supporting it officially for them. In reality, most of our B2B sites have > 50% of users on IE6 -- we'll be stuck with it for some time. Hopefully Google's impetus to kill support for IE6 can help sway corporate decisions more than Microsoft's own declaration of obsolescence.

llamalicious (448215) writes "An article on Dark Reading gives a bit of insight into the hidden dangers of engaging in corporate security "dirty-work". A seemingly simple task provides two security contractors with an unpleasant awakening to the realities of attempting to covertly retake company property from a crooked employee.

From the article: "Our success was short lived when he turned and saw us walking out with his machine. His polished, professional demeanor changed for the worst when he saw us trying to leave the building. He raced toward us and began trying to pry the laptop from my colleague's hands, while cursing and calling us unprintable names."

Rejected: HOW-TO: build an RF homing beacon, ala RFID

llamalicious llamalicious writes  |  more than 8 years ago

I submitted this a while ago for ask slashdot, so I figured I'd post it here, in case anyone who reads my journal might be an electronics geek/guru:

I'm a budding electronics geek, trying to build what amounts to an RFID tag and scanner system to act as a homing beacon, but without the unique ID data. I'm looking to have the tag/transmitter be powered by magnetic field generated in an antenna on the device, with the scanner/tracker sending out the signal. An optimal design would include a return frequency differing from the input, very tiny size/mass and a range of up to 50 feet. So far I've been stumped trying to find good information on the internet about how to build my own, so I'm asking all you /. electronics geeks: What are some good resources to check (online, books, schematics)?

Credit theft

llamalicious llamalicious writes  |  more than 9 years ago

Yay! I'm a statistic. Mark me down on the list of people who've had their MasterCard info stolen and used to make fraudulent purchases.

$2,566.07 in Google Adwords purchases no less.
All while in the midst of trying to purchase a home with my wife. Awesome timing. Well, you know all those tips and tricks for avoiding credit and identity theft? Read them all, use 'em.

Going to take weeks to sort this out, I can kiss my finances goodbye.
