This is on the heels of a stand-off that lead to the death of the Prosecutor who didn't punish cops that killed a 15 year old protestor a year ago. One can't help but wonder if this "power outage" was a ham-fisted attempt at controlling the spread of news and stifling the people's ability to communicate and organize.
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).
if it's developed, implemented, and maintained by straight, white, god fearing Christians.
along with the occasional tube, relay, or tunnel diode.
OH, and CRTs
And not to be pedantic, but It looks like if you pick just the right spot in northern Montana, you could be lucky enough to find yourself on the French Southern and Antarctic Lands.
Because you can't cram them into the body tricorder and they don't always make the right noise when you waive them over patients.
It does, but you'll have to stow it if you drive into any of the Martian Museums.
Yep - commercial displays are the way to go. I used to love NEC but their failure rates as of late have been pretty abysmal. Check out Samsung's commercial display site if you truly want to drive yourself into a fit of murderous rage. Otherwise, I'd recommend Planar. Their stuff is rock solid and you can pick up a phone and actually talk to a person.
I don't work for them, but I spec their products on a regular basis (both as a consultant and an integrator) and have been very happy with them across the board.
The pro stuff is also more 'geek friendly', with things like well documented control protocols, and user interfaces that don't treat you like a braying moron.
"Matthew has endured serious health issues since an early age and had a double-liver transplant three years ago..."
We have two livers?! And all this time I've been drinking like I've got just the one...
Good read, thanks!
I call shenanigans.
Amen to that!
My old Tektronix scopes are still frighteningly accurate some 50+ years later. The old manuals went beyond just schematics & troubleshooting procedures; there were very through circuit descriptions and theory of operation narratives & diagrams. I learned much of what I know reading those old manuals and maintaining my gear as a kid. Even later era 7000 series gear (babies at 30 - 40 years old) are still rock solid, well documented, and maintainable (though the digital stuff gets a little dicey with those custom, hard-to-find chips).
How many kilojoules per public elementary school is that?
Yeah, newer macs will kick in HDCP if you look at them the wrong way. About a year and a half ago, we were running a generative visual app (Jitter) on a mini feeding an HDMI capture card on a PC (gen'ing alpha masks for a Watchout system). We could see boot-up through the capture card, but as soon as the quickTime component initialized, the output was borked.
lesson learned: stick with analog
..Or Y, depending on your UCS orientation
64 speakers and they're by and large constrained to one plane?
I do electroacosutic design for a company that does real '3D' sound installations using an equally spaced 3D array of speakers. The effect is unreal!
I mean, these guys are Dolby, so I'm sure its a 'sound' design (sorry, sorry), but I'm just curious as to why there's not a high and low ring (or at least an upper and lower L/C/R). There's crazy spatilization tricks you can do with low double-digit millisecond delay times, maybe if they're taking those sorts of approaches.
I wonder if the composer is has to address each channel, or if they're given a subset of channels and math does the rest.
I know our up/down perception isn't as keen as the other two dimensions, but still.. 64 speakers? Curious to learn more...
Eyah, been there. 5 weeks of traveling as a single male passenger on one way tickets, booked by a 3rd party.
I might as well have been wearing a "Death to Infidels" T-shirt.
