+ - Ask Slashdot: How many 1-4 digit UID users are left? 1

Submitted by Nick
Nick (109) writes "Many years ago I went to a gas station to buy a pack of smokes. I got back home, refreshed Netscape running on some treacherous X11 build most likely, and noticed Slashdot was registering users. I signed up and got a three digit UID.

I never really paid too much attention, and over the years I still read but rarely post. I enjoy seeing a two or three digit UID post, but those are few and far between.

My question is this: how many ultra-low UID members are out there and reading this today?"

+ - Japanese Machine Converts Plastic To Oil-> 2

Submitted by
Nick
Nick writes "Rather than burning the plastic using flame, which generates CO2, the machine uses a temperature-controlled electric heater to convert plastic into crude gas, which can then be used to power gas-based household appliances like stoves, boilers and generators or, if refined, can even be pumped into a car or motorcycle. Small yet highly efficient, the machine produces nearly one liter of oil – gasoline, diesel or kerosine – from every kilogram of plastic, requiring only 1 kilowatt of electricity for the conversion.

A five minute YouTube demonstrates the process"
