Universal Big Bang Lithium Deficit Confirmed

wulfhere Half-life (170 comments)

Perhaps Lithium is radioactive, but with a 2 billion year half-life? Perhaps all the elements are, but with much longer half-lifes, and everything will end up as hydrogen again before the ultimate heat death of the universe.

I don't know if they still do, but AT&T DSL customers used Yahoo mail as recently as last year.

I'm a wireless engineer (but not a WiFi engineer), so I might just check out that book. Thanks!

New MU-MIMO Standard Could Allow For Gigabit WiFi Throughput

wulfhere A rare sight (32 comments)

What a great, informative reply! I learned something. So rare on Slashdot lately. :-/

So, is 802.11ac a polling MAC layer?

Should programming be a required curriculum in public schools?

wulfhere Single Class - and multiple elective options (313 comments)

Everyone should be required to take a single class, if for no better reason than to teach them A) some basic logic, and B) what's going on behind the scenes in the technology they use every day. And there's should be electives available every year, similar to band/orchestra/wood shop.

Game Review: Path of Exile (Video)

wulfhere Obnoxious Ad (177 comments)

Yes, I know you can click the transcript, but making us wade through a 2 minute video ad (with horribly choppy sound for me) seems pretty obnoxious. I doubt anybody from Slashdot or Dice is actually in here reading these comments, but if you are, I thought you should know that I'll be avoiding these kinds of articles from now on.

Gate One Will Support X11: Fast Enough To Run VLC In Your Browser

wulfhere Re:The network says no (164 comments)

Agreed. 50ms is long enough to get from Chicago to NY, TWICE, on fiber (and not using the special low-latency routes). I don't need it to be exactly like sitting at the workstation, I'm just looking for it to be USABLE, unlike Citrix connections that drop anytime someone sneezes at a NOC somewhere.

Linking Mass Extinctions To the Sun's Journey In the Milky Way

wulfhere Re:Oort cloud? (199 comments)

Man, do I wish for mod points. I was thinking the exact same thing about our star wandering. If the spiral arms are hostile to life, that could *significantly* cut down on the number of stars capable of supporting life.
