polar red writes "22 years of banning CFCs is starting to pay off. Researchers have finally been able to measure a reduction in size of the ozone layer hole, after finding the source of its fluctuations. 'Salby's results reveal a fast decline in ozone levels until the late 1990s, then a slow rebound that closely matches what theoretical calculations had predicted, says David Karoly, a climate scientist at the University of Melbourne, Australia. "It is the sort of result that was expected, but is the first to provide detection of an increase in Antarctic ozone levels," he says.'"
no earthbound or chrono trigger? really????
Cause I just happened to be looking at AMD for my next big upgrade!
Human level vision requires human level intelligence, which can't (afaik) be ordered up on demand.

Barence writes "Last week, PC Pro issued a challenge to see whose PC could render a 3D graphics benchmark in the shortest time. The competition was won by an entrant with a rather unfair advantage: Intel. The processor giant's superchilled rig is overclocked to nearly 5GHz. As PC Pro explains: 'The rig itself uses phase-change cooling: in other words it's attached to a chuffing great freezer, which I believe is the big box on the right of the photo. That yellow meter with the readout is showing the temperature of its output: yes, that's minus 40 degrees Celcius.'"
To stay on top now, you have to be aware of the advanced concepts coming out of functional programming languages. But moreover, you have to get good enough with those languages that it starts to effect how you write java/c#/c++ etc etc. I recommend getting down with Haskell or lisp and choose some industrial languages after you're comfortable with them.
what does this say for the lack of life on other planets? you'd think by now *something* would have spread to another inner solar system planet... perhaps they also get wiped just like the earth?
