The BBC article is not clear on the fuel at all, the site coffeecar.org, states the car uses spent coffee grounds for fuel. So, this isn't as asinine as it originally sounds, just turning waste into syngas, not a useable (valuable, tasty) commodity for syngas.
The article is not clear on this, but the site it references (coffeecar.org) states the fuel is spent coffee grounds. So, it's maybe a little greener than using whole raw beans. At least it's using something that would otherwise go into the garbage, or my garden.
The site coffeecar.org makes reference to using waste from coffee shops. So, I guess that better than wasting perfectly good beans.
Don't you hate pants?
Is that a nuke in your sidecar, or are you just happy to see me?
No, but I did throw a rock and it went right where the convergence point was... it was cool.
I've often wondered why I "see" spinning disks (as the article described) when on road trips or on hot days. It's very odd to explain, the best analogy I could come up with was a "Video game style targeting system"... But seeing it explained as a hallucination makes sense.
Well, it doesn't have much to do with "Your Rights Online"
I get the same giddy enthusiasm that I got back in the '80's with the Voyager.
But that is a very interesting question about which direction they would fly.
I would venture they might take tradewinds/jet stream into account, perhaps some thermal updrafts too, over merely following the sun.
GV uses data service. If you're mobile, it's sending over 3G/EDGE. At home it uses wifi. My usage statement last month showed 245MB data usage Vs only 9 minutes of airtime used. That was for calls that came to my cell phone directly, that didn't dial my GV number.
I use google voice, over wifi while at home.
If you have T-Mobile and a blackberry device, you have use UMA over wifi as well.
I fit into this category. I was taking summer school at the local community college so that I could take AP classes the follow school year.
In California, we have an exam called the High School equivalency exam. I took this test at 16, and by the time I was 17 I was a college freshman.
On top of that, the school I went to was on the trimester system, so I had a Bachelors of Science by the time I was 20.
My HS classmates at that time were probably in their second year in college by that time.
I would have greatly appreciated having the opportunity to "Walk" with graduating class that year (or what would have been my year), it sounds like this plan would allow over-achievers like myself to have the best of both worlds.
Furthermore, googling around for RG6 to RJ45 yielded some results.
Network Video Technologies makes adapters that go from coax to rj45
Just wanted to clarify that Ethernet refers to a standard, not a cable. You can have ethernet over UTP, coax, fiber, etc...
If the coax in your walls is RG6, that's probably better than Cat5.
Homes with Fios or UVerse have nifty little coax to rj45 boxes that allow for the home networking setup.
That's actually pretty funny. Mod up!
