Whatever Happened To the IPv4 Address Crisis?

xOneca Re:Probably the home router... (574 comments)

What Dagger2 is trying to say is that the same effect can be achieved with a router that does not NAT, but does stateful firewalling. That without all the hassles of having two separate networks at both ends of the router.

Standard home routers could implement it more efficiently than NAT: no need to configure local LAN and no limit in outgoing simultaneous connections (~65000). And if an internal host must be reached from outside, it can be allowed through the firewall (entirely, or just a few ports).

Disentangling Facts From Fantasy In the World of Edison and Tesla

xOneca Re:You joke about DC (386 comments)

The reason is that DC only requires as single cable - which can be supported by quite a thin little pole (the ground itself can be the return line).

That can also be done with AC. Note that the return line (Neutral wire) is same as ground. Instrad of three-phase it can also be done with monophased AC, thus having only one wire to carry through poles.

Ultra sensitive detection of radio waves with lasers

xOneca xOneca writes  |  about 9 months ago

xOneca (1271886) writes "It's a bit outdated, (a month ago) but it didn't appear in Slashdot, despite being interesting.

From the article:

'Noise' in the detector of the measuring instrument limits how sensitive and precise the measurements can be. [...] "We have developed a detector that does not need to be cooled down, but which can operate at room temperature and yet hardly has any thermal noise. The only noise that fundamentally remains is so-called quantum noise, which is the minimal fluctuations of the laser light itself," explains Eugene Polzik, Professor and Head of the research center Quantop at the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen. [...] The experiment consists of an antenna, which picks up the radio waves, a capacitor and a laser beam. The antenna picks up the radio waves and transfers the signal to the capacitor, which is read by the laser beam.
