What's broken? "Everything is a file" and other traditions are ignored. Log files are no longer text files. I'll stop right there.
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).
From the comments, I thought this was youtube...
Sure would be nice to have a "tip jar" donation button. *click* *click* *click* I sure would be sending quarters by the dozens...concept has been around for decades...
A degree is a useful tool in the HR file. It is often used for grooming on the management fast track. Great for all sorts of perks. It's like traveling first class.
I wish time was this recursive.
You should have seen the early slashdot articles. And the comments too...
Intercepted: if you are caught being rich.
Wiretapping: if you are caught being poor.
Ever notice how his works looked like they came straight out of manufacturer's data sheets? The more you know...
That's a steal at $0.50 cents per person. A fancy gold plated push pin on the map for every American!
...but will the GPS actually work? (Galaxy S owner here...)
I learned assembly language on the original ZX81. 1KB of memory was a lot back in those days.
I have 100 amp service. That means I can use 22000 watts, more than enough. Right now, I'm using 3 1500 watt heaters in my house, for a total of 4,500 watts.
Some of my neighbors have 200 amp service. The utility company is not going to put a 12000 watt transformer up to any of our houses...
AC motors require these drives to get their speed. 60Hz would be about 1800 or 3600 rpm, depending how its wound. Most industrial drives can be programmed for 400Hz, which will spin the armature quite fast. Enrichment is like spinning glassware on a dentist's drill. Those frequencies at that high of voltage (480 volts typical) has a very high switching rate that requires exotic transistor designs. Given that these controllers aren't very common, say for a juice mixer, they can be tracked and sabotaged by the distributor quite easily.
