Why not doit on top of mount everest then?

http://g.co/maps/ugkwm as you can see in this link it is almost at the equator level and would be able to have a 360 look of the universe, and i bet it is a nice place to have a telescope. and im gessing that it would not be that hard to run some fiber optics or even a wireless link could be made, it could be operated remotly from some confy office.

Yes, but in my opinion, they could have made a lot of money whit those IP address, i mean, if they are yours, you can sell them, lets say 1 Dollar each one, that's, 3 +2 = 5 -4 = 1 ..... 16 Megadolars :D not bad. What about the other big companies, will they give it for free.

On the other hand, they would worth nothing after IPV6 is completely adopted and giving them away now could benefit you with the karma (public image) of your company. but we all know that IPV6 will take a really long time before it actually gains some kinetic movement.

Duke Nukem Forever Back In Development 356

An anonymous reader writes "'Always bet on Duke.' It seems he was right about himself, at least. The longest, most storied in-development game in history seems like it's finally going to be released by Gearbox Software sometime within the next year. 'According to Pitchford, Gearbox began finishing Duke Nukem Forever in late 2009. "Clearly the game hadn't been finished at 3D Realms but a lot of content had been created," he says. "The approach and investment and process at 3D Realms didn't quite make it, and it cracked at the end. With Gearbox Software we brought all those pieces together. It's the game it was meant to be." The game is currently expected to ship in 2010 although given its history Pitchford is understandably reluctant to be more specific.'"

An anonymous reader writes "KDE 4.5.0 has been released to the world. See the release announcement for details. Highlights include a Webkit browser rendering option for Konqueror, a new caching mechanism for a faster experience and a re-worked notification system. Another new feature is Perl bindings, in addition to Python, Ruby and JavaScript support. The Phonon multimedia library now integrates with PulseAudio. See this interview with KDE developer and spokesperson Sebastian Kugler on how KDE can continue to be innovative in the KDE4 age. Packages should be available for most Linux distributions in the coming days. More than 16000 bug fixes were committed since 4.4."
