Some experts say it's because shale gas expanded too fast so that a glut depressed the price and nobody made money any more.
Oh no, a voice of reason!
> Natural gas in the US has more than that
The question is at what price - just like for tight oil.
Moore's law was about a one node shrink every 18 months, meaning a reduction in structure sizes by sqrt(2), i.e. twice the number of transistors at the same die size. The reduction in size meant a reduction in gate thickness and operating voltage by sqrt(2) and a reduction of capacitances by a factor of two. Those allowed an increase in clock speed of sqrt(2) at constant power. None of that is happening any more.
Moore's law has run out of steam. Yay!
Meh. No BitCountFactory class?
Exactly. NT3 was cool, NT4 was turned into Windows and hid the WNT foundation as much as possible. And put the graphics in ring 0, shudder.
That makes perfect sense. You have to be oblivious of what's going on to have children these days. I always feel bad for any kids I see today. Living to the end of this century? Holy crap.
People are irrational. Beliefs trump facts most of the time.
If they knew how much they (and the entire economy) had to cut back to do anything substantial about AGW they'd be climate change deniers.
So we know which ISPs to avoid or if we should switch.
The carbon increase in the atmosphere can a) be compared with the amount of fossil fuels burned and b) has a different isotope isotope composition because 14C has only a few thousand year half life so fossil carbon is practically devoid of 14C. Not speculative at all, falsifiable and tested.
