The New VA Health Plan Is Second Life

redneckHippe Re:Good idea, if you ask me. (54 comments)

As a Vet and a recovering addict, I think this is a great idea. I used to go to NA meetings on IRC back in the day and I used to have my own world in Activeworlds, where me and some friends would get together for a small meeting. It was great, especially when someone was out of town and couldn't make a meeting in meatspace. I'm surprised it's taken this long for the VA to figure this out. LD

Intel's Plan to Replace Copper Wires

redneckHippe redneckHippe writes  |  more than 4 years ago

redneckHippe writes "Technology Review has an article on Intel's new Light Peak cable that was announced at the Intel Developer Forum Wednesday. The new cable can transmit 10 gigabits of data per second between electronic devices such as a laptop and an external hard drive. Intel hopes to start shipping in 2010. That means I could transfer my entire pr0n collection in about 8 seconds."
