This is a tunable multi-wavelength laser with tunable red, green, and blue emitters. This makes it useful for scanning various things with different wavelengths at the same time so you may get multiple measurements at once. Good for protein fluorescence and stuff.
This is not the first WLL. Those have been available for at least half a decade.
This is the first SOLID STATE WLL.
What's unique is that they figured out a way to grow three different crystals next to each other on the same substrate without having fatal flaws.
Holy fuck can the editors even be bothered to fact-check?
Oh, yea, what editors?
This is why Cloudflare got four of its routers wiped out during that last October DDoS. As soon as the network infrastructure was known and exploits located, it was the attack point. Security failure.
And this is only going to get worse.
I'm looking at you, Macbook Pro!
Cmd + up/down arrows. Not the best solution, but it works, and after a while, you get used to it!
Gizmodo had an article a while back on this topic.
Basically, under the law, the drone is the same as a full-fledged aircraft. Now, the other side of the equation is that you only own ~100 feet above your property. If it was flying higher, then it is legal.
If it was lower, then it's a different story. In any event, the most prudent course is to call the cops - anything else would just be an overkill, and even if you were in the right, it's just a pain.
You could probably still be subjected to civil suits and what not.
"No shotgun will knock down a drone at 500 ft"
Bullshit. I've seen 200+ yard shotgun slug shots, WITH ACCURACY, and you can find videos of them all over youtube.
" I've been in the software business for almost 40 years,"
Software, not security.
"I suggest you study texts on encryption, and maybe read the technical details of how a good cloud-based password manager like LastPass actually works"
That's all I fucking need to know. A piece of paper holding my passwords is more secure in my wallet than my passwords are with LastPass or KeepPass. I also have the ability to actually defend my stuff if someone tries to take it, whereas someone hacks your shit and it's gone, you're fucked. By the time you realize it, it's too late, they've made off with your stuff.
"Your super-whiz-bang method still requires a password, it seems"
Good authentication requires everything, including a password. We could switch to biometrics, you're fucked because there are any number of ways to get around that, including taking your head off. With a password added for second verification (or third verification, in this case) taking your head does me no good unless I was able to get the password from you before hand.
"How do you hash the passwords for your sites? Still using MD5?"
You silly noobs using hashes and salts. Nowdays smart people embed that information in an image file, good old steganography. You think you got a password database? Enjoy the cluster of hentai you just downloaded. Get past the fact that there's information inside the image? Good luck decrypting the white noise format used to encode it. Unless you have used my server software, you aren't going to be able to do much with it.
As a pilot, I cannot agree more. Some of the cockpit controls out there are downright obnoxious, especially for rotary wing.
I have a friend who is a Harrier jet pilot, and I have heard some horror stories on landing those on aircraft carriers.
Usually, we are told what *not* to do, and so unless explicitly forbidden (e.g., do not do X before this time), we will assume it will be alright. This is clearly an engineering and a documentation/training failure.
It's easy to blame the pilot, but if anything, he's a tragic victim of poor design.
Back in the day, we called this concept the "Software Preisthood"
It wasn't complementary.
1) I am not threatened by "everyone" learning to program
2) don't buy a bunch of stupid apps, and,
3) Apparently, you're a programmer, so write your own apps.
Congrats for not understanding almost all of what you read. Stellar.
Videos are 5x slower than reading
Yep. And they're extremely difficult to deal with contextually, unless you take the time to generate a full transcript - ugh. So (a) waste your time watching, (b) waste your time writing up a transcript, (c) take the time to post... and (d) everyone has already moved on.
Most video "stories" are for droolers. If you can't write it up, it often isn't worth saying. Exceptions being movies of Pluto, that sort of science-y goodness. I don't think I've ever seen *anything* on the idiot box that was worth a full page of actual cogent explanation. And "interviews".... ffs, just write it down.
Well said. Yes. I'd mod you up, I have the points, but I've posted, so the broken slashcode won't let me. So kudos, anyway.
Make the slashdot UID the new UID for incoming ex-slashers. New users get numbers beyond the current max.
Perhaps the new owners will finally fix the massively broken and stupid moderation system that the previous and current owners have left bereft of badly needed attention:
o Moderators can't post with ID. Stupid. Utterly, completely, stupid. Pointless. Ridiculous.
o Moderators have zero accountability for what they've done -- only for what they might do later
o Absolutely no effective mechanism to remove bad moderation (and that really screws up threads here)
o AC's unjustly penalized, many of the site's best posts never rise above the noise level
o Trolls go un-handled -- the AC low-runging is a punt at not having to work at moderation. But it doesn't work.
o Perversely limited set of mod types leaves moderators unable to moderate reasonably
o Limits on mod ranges penalize the very best posts (and don't adequately address the trolls, either, because...
o On slashdot, troll is effectively equal to AC with one person disagreeing, and...
o Because we can't attribute the "disagree" to the mod, it can't be remediated except by the...
o Random and future-behavior-only-focused meta moderation system.
And then we have:
o Ridiculous delays between posts for ACs AND for logged-in users. Big convo? Too bad for you.
o Inability STILL to handle many character entities after all these years. Not to mention UTF-*8, omg.
o Retarded signature limits. C'mon. Bad sigs should be moderated. It takes a lot of chars to use HTML.
And of course there are the short-bus elephants in the room:
o "Editors" that know nothing about editing. Or writing. Or what constitutes a "story"
o The "firehose", a way to vote up stuff that won't get posted -- can be a total waste of time
o And the continuous mucking about with the parts that worked, making them NOT work,
while all of the above, which ACTUALLY needs fixing, goes unfixed.
I'd fire the bloody lot of them, frankly.
" within 5 to 10 ft of the charger."
My god the amount of power you'd waste just to get a usable bit of power several feet out is staggering.
Stick with a wire.
