Submission + - Fukushima Temperature Soars as Crisis Awakens (inhabitat.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The temperature of reactor number 2 at Japan's Fukushima nuclear plant just soared up 26.7 degrees Celsius over the course of the past several hours, prompting concern over the state of TEPCO's shutdown efforts. The news comes soon after Japan announced an official “cold shutdown” of the damaged plant, and authorities not released any information as to why the temperature has increased from the stabilized temp of 45 deg c to 73.3 deg c.

Submission + - Where can I buy ROMs? 1

PktLoss writes: "I'm interested in building an arcade machine, following the footsteps of Cmdr Taco amongst many others. Not being all that interested in piracy, I need to find somewhere to buy games. Starroms used to be the kind of thing I was looking for, though with an incredibly short catalog. The MAME people have a few available for free (non-commercial), but this isn't going to sate my needs.

There's an entire cottage industry supporting this goal. People are ready to sell me plans, kits, buttons, joy sticks, glass marquees, and entire machines. That's fantastic, but where can I get the games? I refuse to believe that this entire industry is built on piracy."

Submission + - Cisco Linksys routers still don't support IPv6 (networkworld.com)

Julie188 writes: It's 2011, IPv4 addresses are officially exhausted, and the world's largest router maker, Cisco, still doesn't support IPv6 in its best-selling line of Linksys wireless routers. This is true even for the new E4200 router released just last month (priced at $180). The company has promised to add IPv6 to the E4200 by the spring. But it has not been specific about if and how it will offer an IPv6 upgrade to the millions of other Linksys routers currently running in homes and small businesses.
