This is all nice and good, but someone ought to start working on the second, more secret library, to be located in the other end of the planet
Only psychology and psychohistory books allowed there
Me? I'm worred too, a lot!
So, in who's interest is it that the police perform these "for show" stunts?
Wouldn't it be much better to deploy a helicopter, drone or other means of tracking the car from a distance, and not risk killing several bystanders in a crash? This time only the bad guy died, but even him did not deserve capital punishment for a car jack
My thoughts exactly when seeing this. Scary. Awesome too
Very nice indeed! But out of curiosity, what makes the eclipse an interesting moment to do this (which I suppose is intended for exact distance measurements), as opposed to say, any new moon? I don't mean this out of spite, it is really my curiosity kicking in, can you ask your wife what data is this intended to gather and to what end?
That's just confirming that I'm on the right path, when I buy an ebook, the first thing I do is to strip-out the DRM and then save this copy in my backed-up storage. If I paid for it, I want to make sure I own it, period.
This is a very interesting moment in time. At this rate of development, it is quite possible that in a decade or two we'd have full spectrographic analysis of the atmospheres of a handful of words. This might not be the ones best suited to sustain life, but we might get to those as well. Can't wait!
Well, different from a central HVAC, where you set the thermostat and forget, with individual units I make a decision when to turn on and in which rooms. In the end, I only use cooling when temp gets higher than 26C (79F), and only on rooms being used, taking care to close doors. I calculate in a given week I have a total of about 20 hours of AC running, give it or take it.
And only during summer, winters are mild enough that no heating is needed (it would be electric if needed, not propane or oil)
Weather turning warmer here in the south hemisphere, so there's more A/C. Should peak at some 200KWh at the height of summer.
And I telecommute, so I'm at home most of the time, but usually only one room has the A/C turned on (it's not central, but very efficient inverter split units on each important room)
Other costs are the refrigerator, lighting, TV gear, etc.
From Scott Hanselman, who actually depends on this sort of stuff to stay alive:

Read the article, it is very interesting and he makes some very compelling arguments as to why this is a bit too much hype...
(is this change in balance enough for me to claim "life in transformation" now?)
Raise your hand if you read that too.
Paint me disappointed
Oh, this is true for so many things
Get those pilots and flight attendants to the gym *now*!
