Some time ago I remember reading about a proposal to building an aquaduct from the Snake River in Idaho to Southern California. It reminded me of the metaphor that when a cancerous tumor grows unchecked it will commadeer local blood vessels for its own use.
Two of them? Great would make an awesome houseboat. I wonder if you they would sell them for scrape.
Are you referring to reg exp? If so... it is you loss for not understanding reg exp.
Europeans are not any more violent if you know your history (or read today's newspapers). What might be different is that Europeans have been more *organized* and invented more *technology* and therefore have done a much better job carrying out the violent tendencies that exist in all humans.
Once again science just proving the accuracy of Genesis
That is why they call it Disruptive Technology... in this case the reaction is quite literally disruptive.
I don't think the plan is to melt snow from the energy generated from the panels but would require an input of energy. Obviously there are few things more effective in turning incident solar energy into heat than black rough surfaced asphalt.
Imagine the opacity of the glass surface after a few days of traffic with steel studs or rocks caught in the treads or just tires driving over blown dirt and dust .
The idea of a solar roadway sounds great to the intuitive but lousy to the analytical and practical.
This is best you can do to flame Perl?
2. So... use if ( defined $str ) what's so irrevocable borked.
3. Care to give an example. I have never read Perl source and have programmed 100k's line of code in Perl and maintain several CPAN modules.
on a platter?
Which is sad because the Electic Chair is really a crude form of execution and was an Edison marketing gimic as a way to convince the public that AC was baaaaaad stuff.
Interesting marketing technique.
"Life finds a way"
No truer words were ever spoken
I have put in driveway snowmelt systems and a typically driveway needs at a minimum ~100 kbtu/hr boiler to keep the driveway clear. Scaling that up to a road way and it would be astronomical.
What is going to prevent these plates from getting scratched and rendered useless shortly by studded tires, gravel, snow plows, etc.
i think solar roof tiles is a much better idea.
And what about file system crashes (ie from power being pulled) in an embedded environment?
