Researchers Demonstrate Quantum Levitation

mjackson14609 Re:sad (133 comments)

Excatly! Even the superconductor itself is YBCuO, which has been well known since 1986. It's the first "Type 2" superconductor to have been discovered.

It may be the first high-temperature superconductor discovered. Type II superconductors go back to the 1930s. (I worked with Nb3Sn samples when I had a summer job at Gulf General Atomic in 1969.)

US Supreme Court: Video Games Qualify For First Amendment

mjackson14609 Re:As an American Conservative... (458 comments)

Note that the "reasoning" of Thomas was that the original view of the First Amendment at the time the Bill of Rights was enacted "does not include a right to speak to minors (or a right of minors to access speech) without going through the minors' parents or guardians."

AT&T Dropping Usenet Netnews; Low-Cost Alternatives?

mjackson14609 Re:Is it worth it anymore? (345 comments)

Depends entirely on the individual. There are several newsgroups I personally find worthwhile, and I much prefer dealihg with them through a regular newsgroup client. When Roadrunner dropped netnews last year I went with individual.net - 10 Euros/year - and have been quite satisfied. YMMV.
