Comment: It's not there. (Score 1) 293 293


A. There is a fundamental aspect of space/time we don't understand. (Maybe there is some type of Aether?)
B. We don't understand gravity over long distances. (Maybe it has a different effect over longer distances than we are aware)
C. We are not measuring something else properly. Light, time, distance....?

This whole "dark matter" thing has been unreasonably preposterous from the word go.

Comment: Hilarious! I read RT frequently. (Score 1) 254 254

While the RT agenda is fairly obvious and I don't question that some of the info is skewed in some way, I find it a much more reliable outlet than CNN, MSNBC, FOX, or the plethora of other vacuous and blatantly false media outlets available here in the US.

I can find some decent reporting on the RT, and almost none of it is about Honey Boo Boo and Kim Kardashian, so..... .... It's a much better news source than most of the gheystream media.

crhylove writes: I work for a small data center in a rural part of the US. We have a few solid and redundant Internet connections, a bunch of rack space and triple fail-safe power (including a generator if both of our power contracts simultaneously fail). While this is a great solution for our hosting and mail clients, it's not the stability and up-time that multiple international data centers would provide.

There's got to be some other small data centers like us who are looking for a distant location to have a few racks in. Is there currently a website or online meet up that provides a good forum for partnering with other small data centers and trading rack space/bandwidth straight across?

Comment: What makes good movies... (Score 1) 1029 1029

1. The Big Lebowski
2. Office Space
3. Ground Hog Day
4. Brassed Off
5. Empire Strikes Back
6. The Princess Bride
7. Borat
8. Dumb & Dumber
9. Braveheart
10. The Unforgiven

What do these movies have in common? Great plots, great concepts, and great execution. Some of them are big budget, but most of them did not have to be (besides Braveheart and ESB obviously). Hollywood makes almost nothing but crap now. It's not really about the budget or the star factor. IDIOTS!

Comment: Jenny isn't the problem. (Score 1) 668 668

Jenny McCarthy isn't the problem.
Barbara Walters isn't the problem.
Measles, Autism, and Vaccines aren't even the problem.
The problem is that these insane and corrupt pharmaceutical companies have such a poor history of engendering human health that nobody trusts them at all any more.
I'm pro science. I'm pro vaccine. But how can I justify endangering my kid by injecting an infant with the history of Glaxosmithkline?
That seems riskier than ANY disease.
Give me a vaccine from a company with a history of good human health decisions, and I'll gladly use it!

So would this be more or less energy dense as a storage medium than graphene ultracapacitors?

What's the memory like? How many charge cycles are they good for?

Or should I just start working on building my portable micro thorium salt reactor?
