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).
Also, regenerative breaking might come into play. 30 MPG is an arbitrary assumption to compare the electric vehicle mileage per unit energy to.
"The colour palette is still not quite right," he said. "But it proves the point and it runs quite quickly, though it's not optimised."
Mr Jordon has no plans to fine tune the demonstration and do that optimisation or take on more work to get the game beyond its loading screen, given how much trouble it took to get it working at all.
"I'm so sick of it," he said. "I'm done."
On a blog entry about Mr Jordon's work, Canon said it intended "to provide a fix as quickly as is feasible".
This will involve adding a user name and password field to the web interface for future Pixma printers and issuing an update for existing owners to add the same feature.
It looks like Cannon is planning to release a fix to correct the color palette and get the game optimized! Even better they are going to add accounts to the game for scores and going to release this for all previous purchasers of the printer! Sweet!
"Yes, but does it run linux?"
"I, for one, welcome our Linux Powered Drone Over(head)lords!"
"Linux powered drones pour Hot Grits on Natalie Portman from the Sky!"
This gets a bit more complicated. You need to also compare Gas vs Electric engine efficiency, Gas vs Electric Storage Efficiency, The effects of Regenerative Braking, on and on and on...
Gas engine has poor efficiency, but electric larger has transmission and storage losses, but gains regenerative braking. The picture is very complex. Maybe in the end its a wash?
When a business targets African-Americans by buying names associated with African-Americans, that's textbook racism. Why? Because it's making assumptions about individuals based on their membership in a group.
Its not racism unless they are getting treated in a negative way. If the business is targeting those "it" perceive have the most need for it's goods or services, then it's just being smart. If it's denying people access to good and services because of arbitrary traits, then its bad.
The Tesla batteries are individually small units - basically, repurposed laptop batteries stacked together. Tesla does not make them. And, they have been known to have problems, which Tesla has had to engineer around.
"In electricity, a battery is a device consisting of one or more electrochemical cells that convert stored chemical energy into electrical energy."
Sounds like connecting a bunch of cells they don't actually manufacture into a battery, and basically successfully dealing with the side effects, management, and other issues involved in stringing together a battery of cells. How are they not qualified to make batteries?
I don't expect the guy at the checkpoint to be able to decide if the "modified" watch is dangerous or not, and so they called in the experts (who decided that there were no explosives).
Why Not? If the guy at the checkpoint is supposed to be responsible for security, then he aught to at least be somewhat technically adept and have some idea of whether or not a circuit could be dangerous.
I think your expectations are too low for someone with this level of responsibility.
The problem is that in this case, the law shouldn't exist at all whether it's for the Koran, a flag, or a poppy, but fundamentally it's got to be one or the other, either you can burn poppies, flags, and Korans, or you can burn none of them
Well I, for one, hold as Sacred the following: Wood, Natural Gas and Coal. Have fun heating/powering your home without burning anything!
