Dell Demos 5K Display

polar red Re:In other news: Are 4K displays worth getting ye (204 comments)

Anybody use a 4K display for programming / development work? Good or bad idea?

i would LOVE that. I am now using 2 * 1920*1080, and i would gladly trade them in for a 4K. I would love to be able to see more code, multiple windows side by side, and more vertical space would eliminate a lot of scrolling

polar red Re:in the meantime : (204 comments)

24" 1920*1080 are pretty cheap right now, Last year I got one for 99€ , but usually they go for about 120 - 130 €. While for a 2560*1440 27", you pay at least 400 €; make that 300€, and I'm getting one NOW.

Finland's Nuclear Plant Start Delayed Again

polar red Re:Arevas failure (130 comments)

and it isn't the building part which we are bad at, it's the managing, planning, ... part we are bad at. I truly wonder if those chines reactors are up to specs, are all millions of parts completely on spec (or are there sub-par components ?)

Finland's Nuclear Plant Start Delayed Again

polar red Re:Arevas failure (130 comments)

the actual problem has been shoddy workmanship and poor project management.

This should be the main focus of distrust in nuclear power; an din my humble opinion the reason why we we shouldn't ever build nuclear power plants ever again.

new study from the UK met office about global warm

polar red polar red writes  |  more than 4 years ago

polar red writes "A new study has a startling conclusion : the earth is warming faster than many believed, and the core of the problem are feedback loops, contributing to a 4 degrees celcius rise by 2055. We only have to cut emissions by 3% yearly to stay within a safe 2 degree rise."

global warming independent of solar activity

polar red polar red writes  |  more than 7 years ago

polar red writes "Many people hold off the idea that humanity could be responsible for global warming. A common scapegoat is the story about rising solar activity. This study shows that the sun is not responsible for the warming in the last decades."
