These are the same people that believe that having sex with a virgin cures aids, and as such rape babies... I wonder if it is a really bad thing if the entire country were to die of ebola.
Well, they cannot become martyrs by just dropping dead. At least they have to kill some unbelievers as well... I think they really have no clue what they are doing.
Maybe we can create group Award, now that Darwinism has become a team sport!
This article reminds me of another English building with a concave mirror in it, that actually melted plastic parts of cars parked on the wrong spot at the wrong time by concentrating sunlight on it. http://geekologie.com/2013/09/...
Well, technology makes a lot of work better and easier. You only have to be very selective in what tech you adopt, and what tech you redirect to the dumpster. But trying a bit with new things is alwys a good idea, otherwise you never discover new useful stuff. Just as programmers should try new editors, from time to time.
going down the drain. They probably have a bigger chance of profit and fame were they do check Mersenne numbers with all that CPU power.
Personally, when reading pdf articles, the difference between 1080p and 4k make a world of difference. The aliasing is almost invisible in 4K. Also, thin diagonal lines in plots are much more clearly defined. Because this difference is so large, I have little doubt that 8k will also make a difference, although maybe not as much as from 2k to 4k. I have not yet had the pleasure of comparing video on 1080p and 4k.
As soon as we have 8k video commonly available, which could be as soon as 2020, if Japan gets to host the Olympic Games, we will run out of storage, out of bandwidth, and there is not even a standard for an optical disc that can hold the data, at the moment. So our period of rest will not be too long.
Up up and away!
So what would be the difference between SSDs for gamers and those for non-gamers? The specs appear to be fairly normal high end for the current SSD market, but nothing exceptional. Maybe a sticker on it displaying a demon wielding an oversized SF gun?
The article clearly mentions 'tiny'. Now in Dune they are all but that.
... required to operate those space mechs? Child Labour is frowned upon, these enlightened days.
Wantint to breed give rise to higher degree of civilisation in what way, exactly? The people that breed a lot tend not to be part of the civilised part of society.
Indeed, otherwise heat pipes would not be so fashionable, these days. It is simply because they work. And if we have a look at air coolers and their reviews, the cooling capacity is not very strongly related to the surface area. It was even remarked that modern heat sinks place the fins too close together, and that air had difficulty going between them. That heat sinks with the fins wider apart, and as such less total area, were more effective coolers. And it is quite easy to get dust out of a finned cooler. But getting dust out of a copper sponge is different matter altogether.
