Except the type of fatigue you are talking about has nothing to do with the type of fatigue airliners experience. Airplane pieces don't normally undergo plastic deformation. CFRP is renowned for it's high-cycle fatigue resistance and is simply not a factor here concerning airframe life.

In an unprecedented move sure to shake up the world of particle physics, CERN announced on Monday that it will give away its newly-discovered Higgs boson particles in a lottery. But given the rarity of Higgs boson particles only one particle is created out of one million million collisions CERN will only be able to reward 10 lucky winners. 'At CERN, we have always believed in sharing the results of our research, and the time has come to make that tangible,' said CERN director of research Sergio Bertolucci. 'This is our way of saying thanks for the incredible level of enthusiasm that has greeted this discovery.
I have a Pentium 4 circa 2001 that runs Windows 7 just fine. GPU runs with only Aero Basic, but otherwise it's an ok machine. It's not like a computer that just sits in the corner and idles all day either, my mother uses it.
Yeah, it's the dick move that they made to require devs to code in a more secure manner. If the model wa so much better, then everyone should be heads over heels to adopt it. But it's not.
Because Python's dynamic typing makes a maintenance nightmare when abused by poor programmers.
Most people probably didn't even know a web browser existed back in 1991.
Type that into the address bar under my taskbar of my Windows machine and I get my IP =P
Isn't that true for, well, everything?
Wrong, it takes far less energy to extract an ounce of reactor-grade uranium from the earth than it will produce in a nuclear reactor.
However, ethanol will take more energy to extract than it will produce when you burn it.
No it's not. Nehalem era CPU are rated to run up to 105C. Sandy Bridge lowered it a bit at 100C but the maximum safe temperature is definitely not ~70C.
Actually skin effect does come into play with DC. Just not steady-state DC currents. If you PWM a DC signal, you will also get skin effect.
64 GB is supercomputing cluster level memory? I have a workstation with 192 GB and 40-core servers (still single-machines) have 512 GB RAM with the option to upgrade to 1TB if we really need it.
Seconded. I tried this and the WNDR3700 and Linksys (now Cisco) was much more stable.
As someone who has camped out for Black Friday: All 50 registers are open that morning.
Isn't this 1.21 Jiggawatts?
You have no idea how BGP or peering works.
So what you're telling me is that if L3 Comcast link goes down for any reason at all, all Comcast customers would lose access to Netflix because L3 can't pass on their traffic?
Do you really think the internet is that fragile?
NO, you're paying for Comcast to transmit your packets to Level 3 and Level 3 is paying Comcast to transmit their packets to you.
Why isn't Comcast paying me to transmit their packets? After all, they are dumping a lot more traffic into my network than I am into theirs.
I am using exactly their rationale they use to justify charging L3.
