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).
I don't mind sane, gentle, & kind people owning guns. But as I said, I don't want nutters, ie mentally ill or fearless, tough, & cruel people, who feel a need to own assault rifles living near me. If you are self identifying as a gun owning nutter, then yes, I don't want to live near you either.
Eating healthy means eating single source foods that are preferably made from local organically produced ingredients. When you look at a plate of food there should be little mystery about where the food on it came from and how it was made. So many people buy the lie that visual equivalence in food equals nutritional or sanitary equivalence, but they are not and the clearest evidence of this is the sad state of the heavily chemically fertilizer salted, herbicide, insecticide polluted soils they come from.
Real health begins with an active healthy soil food web in soils high in organic matter that is continually replenished, which is then used to raise healthy diverse plant life that can nutritiously feed you, the animals that you depend on for food, AND the larger food web of wildlife that keeps the pathogens and pests in check. In race to the bottom for the cheapest convenience food, you, the mono cropped and feed lot food you are eating, and the polluted soil it is created on are the losers. If you want true "Homeland Security", start by making healthy choices and seeking out responsibly made food.
"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself." ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt
Guys who always keeping cell phones in their pockets (98F) will degrade their batteries faster then women who keep them in their purse (75F).
A fully charge cell (4.2v) will lose 35% of its capacity at 100F after one year.
A half charge cell (3.8v) will lose 15% of its capacity at 100F after one year.
A fully charge cell (4.2v) will lose 20% of its capacity at 75F after one year.
A half charge cell (3.8v) will lose 4% of its capacity at 75F after one year.
A fully charge cell (4.2v) will lose 6% of its capacity at 35F after one year.
A half charge cell (3.8v) will lose 2% of its capacity at 35F after one year.
What you should take away from this:
Store LIPO powered devices in a cool shaded places. Never buy extra LIPOs unless you have near term plans to use them. For long term storage of LIPOs or devices with them, get them to half charged and store in the fridge if possible (do not freeze). Beware of condensation when bringing LIPO's or devices back up to room temp in humid environments.
Warning: FPV is not a cheap or easy hobby! It requires a great deal of electrical, mechanical, engineering, radio, and flying skills to be successful.
The RCG FPV Forum is good place to learn more.
Cumin and cinnamon, in close to equal amounts to taste, are the cure for plain ketchup. Discovered and reversed engineered from a pub that served "spicy ketchup" with a basket of fries.
there are only a few ways to re-image a MacBook, and none are fast enough
We use network asr reimaging for all our macs. During the summer we turn our networks into the equivalent of radio stations, multicast broadcasting the new images for the year over all the switches. We publish a command to the machines to switch to the network for boot to kick the process off. We can reimage all 3000 student cart macbooks and all 1500 labs imacs in under a week. The work part of the process is getting the laptops out of the carts and hooked up to power and ethernet and putting them back in once they complete. During the year we switch to imaging using netboot with afp images delivered unicast over gig links for one off repairs. We use the same unicast netboot tech for our windows units so we can be more selective of which image goes with which hardware. Windows is a real pain compared to the universal osx images we deploy.
