My company buys apple hardware for everybody and I have been working on GNU/Linux for 15 years. I use the operating system where I'm most productive, which is GNU/Linux. Also, nowadays OSX seems to be more prone to problems that were reserved for windows users in the past, like unexplicable slugginesh, tons of crap loading at startup, etc. No thanks.
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).
And I will certify your competence in anything. (Signed piece of paper included)
It only took as much as actually being able to have a paperless office.
Once you decap a chip, a toy microscope is enough to tell a counterfeit die from the real thing. Using a laser to stimulate the chip is not a tool to detect counterfeit chips, but for testing, reverse engineer, and thus potentially make counterfeits.
Passing from light into matter, using teleportation of a photon to a crystal, shows that, in quantum physics, it is not the composition of a particle which is important, but rather its state, since this can exist and persist outside such extreme differences as those which distinguish light from matter.
The paper was published in Nature Photonics (Paywall alert)"
Sorry, I have completely forgotten that the surface area is measured in football fields here lately.
A 10 seconds look at the geographic situation of Nicaragua is enough to realize there is no way to do this withouth destroying thousands of square meters of forest and endangering a freshwater lake that is bigger than Delaware.
You are right! According to Wikipedia "Phosphorus, the chemical element named for its light-emitting behavior, emits light due to chemiluminescence, not phosphorescence; hence it is not a phosphor.", go figure!
To make it even more confusing, as a native Spanish speaker, I use the same word "fósforo" for both the chemical element and the luminescent substances.
Blue lasers positioned at the rear of the assembly fire onto a set of mirrors closer to the front. Those mirrors focus the laser energy into a lens filled with yellow phosphorus. The yellow phosphorus, when excited by the blue laser, emits an intense white light.
There is no coherent laser light coming out from the headlight.
Sergei Krikalev has logged 803 days and 9 hours and 39 minutes in space, including eight EVAs.
He currently holds the record for the most time spent in space. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S...
That does't make that statement, the summary, or the article's first paragraph any better. By the way, the Aztec Empire was in North America, not South America.
How is New England closer to Western civilization than the 'white shores of the Mediterranean Sea'? Western civilization was born in the shores of the mediterranean sea.
Mod parent up!
