I think I had a space heater that looked just like that once.
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).
Nothing about technology, nothing geeky at all. Just some gender politics.

You should be a little less paranoid about GPS.
Just because you can find the time and your position using GPS doesn't mean someone can track where you are.
A GPS device is a receiver, not a transmitter.
GPS satellites constantly broadcast the time, and their location. A the GPS in the device takes this data from several (4+) satellites, does the math, and calculates the position.
For this to work the time has to be absolutely correct. So you can use the time to set your clock.
Without some sort of transmitter (like a phone with its data connection, or some sort of dedicated transmitter built into the same device) no one has any possibility of knowing where you are.

CERN's 27-kilometer ring atom smasher, the LHC, only became fully operational in March this year, but the scientists plan to start building a new International Linear Collider (ILC), at a cost of $6.7 billion, in 2012 to smash electrons and positrons together
The tunnel will use superconducting magnets to accelerate electrons and their antimatter equivalents, positrons, towards each other at near light speed. Construction is expected to take seven years. European director of the ILC project, Professor Brian Foster, said the linear collider would enable physicists to explore in more detail the findings of the LHC.
The location of the ILC is not finalized, but somewhere close to CERN's headquarters in Geneva is likely because most of the physicists who will want to use it are there. Around 700 scientists based at 300 universities and laboratories are already working on the project.

Congrats. Of course I'll post just for the achievement as well.
