Airbus Planning Transparent Planes

manofyunk Reminded me of De Havilland Comet (488 comments)

They had crashes that were traced to structural failure of the airframe. The windows shape supposedly caused the fatigue.

I would think that lcd projection onto the ceiling of the cabin would provide a similar experience if tied to a camera mounted on the airframe.

Sidestepping A-to-D Convertors For Town Government's Cable TV?

manofyunk Re:Hotels (539 comments)

I used to work for Idleaire Technologies and they had 130 or so locations across the USA that all did this. There were racks in the Equipment building that had banks of Satellite tuners which fed into individual modulators then out to distribution amplifiers/ combiners. This system seemed to work well... The only real issue was the heat generated by the tuners.

Some People @Home, Some Not @Home

manofyunk RE: Some People @Home, Some Not @Home (513 comments)

This seems like nothing more than high-tech extortion. To top this off it seems that "our" government (or at least the judicial system) supports this behavior.
