Comment Re: This is an OS (Score 1) 131

My windows 10 installation was by no means forced, but when setting up a new ssd after the previous one died, i had the choice of installing windows 7 and spend two days applying patches from the horribly broken windows update or just installing windows 10. Yes, nowadays there is that patch rollup, but not back then.

You are just nitpicking. It is obvious to everyone who isn't an imbecile that 100% clean energy is physically not possible. Hence clean energy means "far cleaner than fossil fuel". And this is what counts, because waiting for a perfect solution that might never come while continuing to use a bad one is worse than continuously updating to a slightly better solution.
And besides, IC production is very much the same "nightmare" as photovoltaic production but I see you posting on Slashdot, using a lot of semiconductor technology in the process. Looks like a double standard from here.

It happens sometimes.
For example a soviet SF book written in the 1920ies described a device that is quite close to a laser weapon (a device that concentrates light in a coherent beam, construction close to a laser resonator), and, in fact, inspired the laser inventor.
A pretty good book by the way, but somewhat difficult to read for a non-native russian speaker because of many obsolete words.

My first weeks were somewhat different - untypically good mood, often giggling about trivial stuff and telling stupid jokes to my coworkers, but not caring much about anything at all. I guess this is how dope smokers feel like when they are high.
It was fun while it lasted.
