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).
No keys, now it is easy to steal someone else's mail. Where will the boxes be located, in the common area, what if there is no common area. Will it be in someone's front yard? Will it cause a traffic issues with existing neighborhoods?
This could apply to almost anyone could end up costing people large amounts of money (but not the USPS, I am sure of that, since the Postmaster makes the rules).
Representative Darrell Issa, a California Republican who has spearheaded Postal Service reforms, has introduced a bill that would also require cluster boxes for existing residences with an exemption for people with disabilities.
1920 x 1200 (Resolution) x 32 bit (4 Bytes Color Depth) x 60 Hz (Refresh) = 4423680000 bit/s = 4423.680 mbit/s or 527 Mbytes/sec
Therefore, they must compress the video stream. So with this I get lag, bad video quality and compression artifacts.
This assumes that I have a high speed internet connection that is not capped... At 2mbit stream rate (but they required a 5mbit connection, therefore you would have some spare capacity for overhead and network issues), you would only get about ~22 hours (~45min/day) per month with a 150GB cap (assuming no overhead, other traffic or other users). I also know people that could push 22 hours in one weekend.
But, it is now time to upgrade my primary single core desktop computer (gaming and general use). I would prefer it if I could get an AMD system, however after doing the research, I am currently planning on building an Intel Core i7-930 based system. I completely agree that I could get an AMD system at a better price, but the performance would be worse than the Intel system. The point of this system is good performance at a decent price.
I had already planned to get the Intel based system before reading this review, but the Phenom II X6 review by Tom’s Hardware just reinforced my original decision. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/amd-phenom-ii-x6-1090t-890fx,2613-14.html
2) It was the British. Information on the substance was passed to Porton Down in 1954 and research there led to VX within a year. This was traded to the United States as the British passed over VX in favor of continuing with sarin as the UK chemical weapon of choice,... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VX_(nerve_agent)
3) The US is destroying their stockpile.
The Project Manager – Chemical Stockpile Elimination manages the safe treatment and disposal of chemical agents and weapons using incineration and neutralization technologies.
Incineration technology is being used at Anniston Army Depot, AL; Pine Bluff Arsenal, AR; Umatilla Chemical Depot, OR; and Deseret Chemical Depot, UT.
Disposal operations using neutralization technology were completed in February 2006 at the Aberdeen Proving Ground, MD, facility - eliminating more than five percent of the nation’s chemical agent inventory. The disposal facility is now closed. The Newport Chemical Depot, IN, facility completed chemical stockpile disposal operations in August 2008 – eliminating four percent of the nation’s chemical agent inventory. Closure operations at the site are now underway.
I am appalled at the absence of ChemE's. Time to "accidentally" shut down some refineries and raise the price of gas. Then "accidentally" shutdown some power plants, water treatment plants, pharmaceutic sites, specialty chemical plants and then finish it off with a few semiconductor fabrication labs.

1. Imminent Danger
It is an old standard, better technology now exists. Sorry, it is not backwards compatible. I have seen people get completely enraged about this change. People look at it like, "If it's not broken, don't fix it." The change is a good thing, but people get defensive about the government breaking their stuff (vs. preparing for the future). Since when has watching TV been a RIGHT, not a PRIVILEGE?
PS: I don't care how I get modded. I am happy just because you used/wasted your mod points on me.
Quick Calculation: I would guess that a maximum of 30% of the electric bill is for AC. In other works a 10MW data center would need up to 4MW of cooling and have a total electric usage of up to14MW.
