+ - Merging slashdot accounts? 2 2

Eclipse-now writes: Is there a way to merge Slashdot accounts? I have this old account, but would find it easier to log in with my Google+ account. Is there a way to do so that merges all my old posts and data into the new Google+ account name?

+ - Solar dye directs light to PV on sides of glass->

Eclipse-now writes: "MIT’s solar concentrator maximizes its mileage by using an efficient expanse of light-collecting glass to guide sunlight into a minute array of potent photovoltaics. The glass panels are coated with a dye that absorbs sunlight and channels it along the pane’s edges while altering its wavelength to reduce energy loss from light transportation. The result is a system that can collect light over a very large area, but requires a very small array of solar cells."

In other words, it's way cheap!
