'u' — the First Authentic Klingon Opera On Earth 165

j0ris writes "The Klingon are passionate opera-lovers, but little is known about their highly evolved form of musical expression. Floris Schonfeld is the initiator and director of 'u', the first authentic Klingon opera on earth. He studied Klingon music theory for over a year, and together with several experts developed various indigenous Klingon instruments. The Terran Klingon Research Ensemble has been set up to further develop a coherent Klingon musical practice amongst human musicians. 'u' premieres on September 9 in The Hague, Netherlands. An invitation by Klingon language expert Marc Okrand has been sent to Kronos, home planet of the Klingons, via radio telescope."

Many of those boxes have timer function, even when they are not able to record the program by themselves, but for this exact reason, they'll turn on to programmed channel.

And then many of the old VHS / DVD recorders have a function that they'll start recording when they receive video signal.

So it might be just one setting on the old recorder and start using the timer function of the converter box.

Your car is emitting O2? What make is it! We may have saved the planet!

Actually no.

His car is running lean and that's why there's too much O2 in exhaust, too much oxygen for amount of gasoline injected. So the engine isn't running as efficiently as it could and is probably producing too much NOx so it would fail the emissions test.

And if it's just a failed O2 (Lambda) sensor then it will be probably running rich, computer injects excessive amounts of fuel to the engine just because it thinks that we're running lean. And yet again, fail in emissions.

So no, planet isn't saved.
