If You're Always Working, You're Never Working Well

Hierarchy has been the primary source of inefficiency everywhere I've ever worked. But how to design an organization that can coordinate itself without hierarchy, especially given that it's made of humans used to playing games of master and servant rather than cooperating for common goals?

Create a common goal, for starters. The rest will fall into place.

Expected article on huge fire in south america, which ignites more natural gas and coal deposits than it should, hinting at larger deposits than previously expected.

Left disappointed.

Proof Mooted For Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle

tenco Re:only "discrete" Fourier/Integral transforms (158 comments)

This has nothing to do with discrete transforms. "Simple" example: \int_{-\inf}^{+\inf} \delta(x) f(x) dx = f(0)

where \delta(x) is the Dirac delta distribution and f(x) a smooth function (e.g.: exp(-itx)/sqrt(2\pi) ).

This uncertainty is also the cause why every laser has a finite spectral width: even a perfect sinoidal electromagnetic wave must have a length in the time regime which is finite - else the wave would hold an infinite amount of energy.

Meet Drone Shield, an Ambitious Idea For a $70 Drone Detection System

Even if you can filter out the noise from the drone your drone shield's sitting on - how exactly does a drone shield sound?

Fox News: US Solar Energy Investment Less Than Germany Because US Has Less Sun

tenco Re:Oh give them a break (644 comments)

Even banks, those evil bastards, still make sure you at least have a sound bussiness plan before giving you money.

I guess that's how the subprime mortgage crisis happened, right?

Gnome Goes JavaScript

tenco Re:JavaScript Is The Future (387 comments)

The only native apps in the future will be high performance applications such as databases. Other than that, everything will be delivered as Software as a Service.

I will believe this when I see the first serious engineering application written in it. Like, Pro/E, SolidWorks, Matlab etc.

Why a Linux User Is Using Windows 3.1

tenco Re:I've done this with Dosbox too but... (415 comments)

I'm just saying, pay attention to when you have to do it and you'll see some room for potential invention.

Why don't you start to pay attention yourself? The guy cooked up a solution that he can run on every device he owns, wondering how far he could take the principle of his solution. Then you advertise buying a separate hardware gadget as an improvement on that? WTH, man?

Alan Cox: Fedora 18 "The Worst Red Hat Distro," Switches To Ubuntu

SolusOS Forks Gnome 3 Fallback Mode

tenco Re:You forgot the new upstream option (162 comments)

The point is, this mode uses Gnome-Shell. I can't use Gnome-Shell on my Netbook, because i use external monitors with it in extend desktop mode and the intel driver for my hardware doesn't support 3d acceleration with these "large" virtual resolutions. So making Gnome-Shell look like Gnome 2 doesn't help at all.

Is there a lava tube on the moon?

tenco tenco writes  |  more than 4 years ago

tenco (773732) writes "J. Haruyama and coworkers discovered on pictures from JAXA's moon orbiter SELENE what may be a lava tube. It's about 65 m in diameter and it's 80 to 88 m deep. It's surroundings are covered by a thin lava sheet which is 20 to 25 m thick. Due to the protection astronauts staying on the moon would need, a lava tube like this would be a good spot to build a moon station. Since it's still uncertain if this is really a lava tube, the researchers hope for sharper pictures from NASA's LRO."

Linked Data for hardware on Linux/BSD?

tenco tenco writes  |  more than 5 years ago

tenco (773732) writes "After viewing Tim Berners-Lee's TED talk on Linked Data I asked myself if there's already linked data out there for hardware which Linux/BSD can be run on. The benefits could be huge. Think of datasets which would contain information like hardware revision, firmware version,hardware bus, kernel versions which the piece of hardware works with, etc. Today, AFAIK, hardware compatibility lists are scattered across the web on wikis, fora and distributions webpages. Maybe we should start to link it together?"
