I remember one day way back then when I no longer could find Dips & Chips and was redirected to a new site called Slashdot. I also remember telling all my coworkers about D&C because we were all Linux guys and this site provided us with all sorts of interesting news on the subject.
I really can't believe I've been here for 10 years, day in and day out... I've become addicted to the Slashdot news. I even check the site on my mobile when I'm away from a computer for more than a day. I have to...
Thank you Rob and your team. You've all given me so much. I can't tell how much you're appreciated.Yours truly,
"We're scanning the pictures in a very high bit resolution — 14 bits — which means that for each pixel, you have about 16,000 shades of grey. A typical scan of a negative or film is eight bits. So it's not only that we're scanning this at a very high pixel resolution — showing detail to five millionths of a metre — but it's also a high bit resolution, because we want to preserve as much of the original information as possible.", Mark Robinson, a professor of Geological Sciences and the principal investigator on the project, told BBC World Service's Digital Planet programme."
