+ - Buckyballs and Diamonoids used to create molecular diodes->

Grow Old Timber (1071718) writes "Scientists working at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences (SIMES) claim to have created a molecule-sized electronic component just a few nanometers long that conducts electricity in only the one direction. In essence, a rectifier diode, but one so small that it may one day help replace much bulkier diodes and other semiconductors found on today's integrated circuits to produce incredibly compact, super-fast electronic devices."

Where did the Neanderthal go? Absorbed. How did our brains evolve over apes? Dietary change from our migration no doubt. Hell maybe the sun altered some DNA passed down through the ages. Let's hope it doesn't reverse the trend. We haven't seen everything the sun is capable of. yet.

And AFAIK the article I read about the free wi-fi is ONLY for other comcast users that have similar devices enabled in their home spaces. Not everyone gets to use the Comcast "free" WiFi. Comcast put it this way to encourage customers to become part of their WiFi system. "Where ever you go you can get free WiFi from other Comcast user participants" (A paraphrase). Like one guy here said use your own router DON"T LEASE. please...

All this talk of "dams' is really about the other energy, OIL. Notice there is NO mention of the oil supply being threatened? The crude supply "we" discovered? That brought about the "Sunni Awakening" When we let them know the tribal leaders could receive profits (or not) That is what got them on "our side" initially. Not the "surge" as the right wingers claimed. Watch how little is mentioned of the Oil supply we fought the war for (our beloved oil execs) The news will be filled with attacks defending just all the other energy sources. SAD SAD SAD and obvious as hell.

Was anxious to use all those cracked programs from the 90s. Rigged up a Win98 machine and what a blast from the past! Sure the drivers can be a pain to hunt down but everything works like it used to. Simple Fast and Free with all the stuff I kept on file. Audio editors MIDI editors, wav recorders etc. The hardest part was finding equip (CPUs and chipsets) that work in the 98 realm.

Don't do anything that will upset the stock price of the telco internet companies. We know how much they are wringing out of us MONTHLY. Pay no attention to the ads on TV about passing legislation limiting FREE TV. It's just the telco companies saying they don't want to have to pay a fee for content they are using.. I say let the bastards pay for free TV. We know how much they are making EVERY FUCKING MONTH!

"I think a prosecutor could make that case considering where he wound up." Wound up? We delivered Russia its' biggest prize by trying to hunt him down now didn't we? If anyone is paranoid its' the US with good reason too I might ad. The truth is hard to deal with when you lie a lot. So stop being such a bad liar.
