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 chose to use uClinux, a Linux distribution designed for microcontrollers and other low-end hardware, particularly CPUs without an MMU and that can’t support virtual memory.
If you have an unlimited budget then you might consider one of these...
Awesome chairs and if you poke around on the site you will find a laptop-specific table.
That's what I'm using right now. There are attachable side tables and laptop stands that go with them.
When we were looking for a replacement lounge setting we spent a few days trying out everything around town. These were the only thing that we both felt comfortable in and had the flexibility for TV watching, being able swivel to face each other and use a laptop. They also great for naps.
These TVs are waste because they are not digital, the countries they are going to are probably a long way from going digital.
It's designed to be hacked, has 6050 MPU and 328P Atmel processor and built-in DSM2 receiver. It comes with the open source multiwii software, I'm sure the other arduino based ones work just as well.
The nRF24 sounds neat.
The L2 point is even further away from the moon than the Earth is (on average around 4-5 times further)
L2 is closer to the Moon that the Earth is to the Moon. Lagrange Points of the Earth-Moon System
Isn't the JWST supposed to park there?
No, James Webb Space Telescope will be at Sun-Earth L2 we're talking about Earth-Moon L2 here.
Dawn spent more than a year orbiting Vesta, a behemoth 330-mile-wide asteroid that circles the sun between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Earlier this month, on Sept. 5, Dawn took its leave of Vesta to begin trekking to the even-larger space rock Ceres, which is categorized as a dwarf planet.
Meanwhile, though, scientists are still poring over the treasure trove of data on Vesta gathered by the probe, and two new studies are reported on Sept. 20 in the journal Science. In one, researchers report the findings of Dawn's Gamma Ray and Neutron Detector (GRAND), which mapped the elemental composition of Vesta's surface."

Congrats on joining the few members of the "50 mile high club", but I'll be a lot more impressed when the chinese get those people into a stable earth orbit and then return, not just breathe the thin air and then fall back... regardless of the sexual organs present in the cockpit. -_-
So is 10 days not a stable enough orbit for you
