Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
For that matter, what's to keep Wal-Mart from claiming you did this on the way back to the counter when you bring in your collection?
Wasn't that more or less how the US went to the moon the first time?
Yes, and look what happened when we "won" that race. The Bad Astronomer made a great post about it.
The Oort cloud, if it proves to exist, is speculated to extend quite a ways out -- possibly 2/3 of the way to the nearest star by some estimations. It's a much looser "full shell" of relatively stationary objects, where the Kuiper belt is more similar to a large asteroid belt.
Wikipedia has some good visualizations and links --

Or it's dual-band big brother, the AP WZR-HP-AG300H. $89.99 for the router itself at Amazon, oddly enough. Nice little table at the bottom comparing the Buffalo router model features as well at that link.
Supports DD-WRT out of the box and support by the manufacturer.
My ONLY complaint is that the radio on my G300NH model is a little bit weaker than my old Linksys routers, since I could boost the signal. I don't think that option works in the firmware on the buffalo, but it might be the difference between the N and G signals that I'm seeing. Still covers my entire house quite well, however, and a little bit outside.
Perhaps we're just too cynical.
I'd get a SATA3 RAID controller, but all of my PCI-E slots are used up.
Most of the quakes I remember growing up had some pretty severe sudden horizontal "jerks" (best way I can describe it) and I think it'd do a lot more damage if most of the construction hadn't been done post-1964.
Anchorage proper had a higher amplification of the effects, as compared to the surrounding areas due to the fact it was built on a giant tidal flat/sandbar.
Well, yeah... if their only choices are unlimited or nothing...
