nherm Re:Fork Slashdot (2219 comments)

let's just fork it and we'll all go somewhere else.

We should all learn spanish and move to barrapunto.com

At least the UI is better than beta... and no Javascript! Hell, is better than classic!

Unpublished J. D. Salinger Stories Leaked On Bittorrent Site

nherm Re:Overrated (218 comments)

I think you hit the nail. Just like Don Quixote, you have to appreciate how different this book is from other works of that time. We are talking about 1605, a few people could write, read, and most of the book were about religious stuff and natural philosophy.

I finished reading The Catcher in the Rye just yesterday. I think teenagers can appreciate that book just like I enjoyed reading The War of the Buttons by Louis Pergaud when I was twelve.

nherm Submarine (283 comments)

I'd play Midway's Submarine.

I played this rarity only once, when I was a kid. If I had a wish, I'd choose to have one, not only for playing, but also to take a look at the intrincate mechanical simulators of waves and clouds. HD graphics are impressive, but there's nothing compared to actually grab and look through a real periscope. But I suppose I'm just being nostalgic.

Back to my memories, the visor in the periscope could get some cleaning though, after countless greasy foreheads of nerds.

At least "News for Nerds" is back! The rest will be added soon, I guess.

NASA Data Suggests Solar Magnetic Field About To Flip

nherm Re:TLDR? 4 minute video. (127 comments)

"TLDR" ?? :)

This recent 1-h presentation from Helen Mason at the Royal Institute is extremely informative

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbI6TDHCfe4

From the article:

"Changes to the field's polarity ripple all the way out to the Voyager probes, on the doorstep of interstellar space."

Expect new announcements about Voyager 1 reaching interstellar space in the next 3 to 4 months :P

Interviews: Ask Ray Kurzweil About the Future of Mankind and Technology

nherm Perfect machines? (244 comments)

Ray, since humans are not perfect beings, any technology created until now have vulnerabilites introduced by human error. Do you think that, after the Singularity, a machine will be able to overcome and correct these vulnerabilites, becoming a perfect entity, or the capabilities of the superintelligence emerging by technological means will be bounded by errors inherited from their creators?

Navier-Stokes Solution Withdrawn
