My favorite is, don't tell your team the plan just give them a bunch of tasks. Let them question the outcome but don't let them know that when everything looks like it is about to fail you'll pull out your final thing and save the day explaining all the random crap you did to start with.
We are beginning to design stuff into cars which continuously draws power, much like the numerous things in our homes that never turn completely off.
Solar cells built into car windshields can be used to mitigate the effects of a car not having its engine running. An owner of a solar-cell windshield equipped car will be able to return to his car, parked at an airport after it has sat unused for possibly several weeks, and have the battery fully charged upon his return. I have traveled and it has always been a concern to me whether the car will start after I have ignored it for a week.
Just a few hundred milliamperes going into the battery would have mitigated this concern.
I do agree with the posters who have already pointed out that using this for office building windows is a lot of wasted expensive effort for a negligible ( and likely negative sans tax credits ) return on investment, considering the cost of line power. A car in a parking lot usually has no line power available.
I strongly suggest you also block all the common advert servers such as doubleclick as they consume far more bandwidth than the updates do.
These are thin film solar technology that has less than a 3 year lifespan. they lose nearly 30% of their power output withing 8 months. It is the same junk as the solar panels sold at Harbor Freight.
Glass is $0.25 a square foot. Solar Cells that have any real efficiency and longevity cost $2.25 a square foot. The bog point is there is barely 10% offset on cost, and these same windows will generate less than 20% of what a normal panel can generate so their economy is even less. Add in losses by being vertical and not tilted to the sun and they will generate 5% of the electricity than a standard cell on the roof will.
So yes, he is missing a big point, these things are worthless as a technology unless used on vaery large mostly glass buildings as a supliment to the existing solar generation system if the contractor can afford a 500% increase in cost of the windows.
They would have to be horribly inefficient to allow most of the light through. So much that they would be useless in any installation other than an all glass high rise.
That pesky Laws of Physics getting in the way again.
Tisk Tisk, blaming "christians" for what the "holy roman church" did is wrong. Please learn your history.
The vatacan actually has the largest stash of bitcoins in the world, it's in the vaults next to the holy Grail and the ark of the covenant.
I pop out the sim all the time with the phone on. you can not "brick" a phone by doing this.
Because I have 100% control with a removable SIM. I don't need yet another thing held hostage by the telephone carrier.
do you notice how dim the IR remote looks on the camera? you do realize that that ir remote is blasting a LOT of light so it is the same as if you can take a 3Watt flashlight and blast your face with sunglasses and see a dim light. they block 90-98% of the light. Go ahead, get a piece of Unexposed but developed 35mm film in front of your webcam and show me how it can see clearly, it cant not without a LOT of light in the room or you remote the IR filter.
Incorrect. MOST have an ir filter. Please research this, it takes you less than 3 minutes on google. if they did not have the IR filter they would easily get overwhelmed, it's why they are put in there and why people REMOVE them for astro-photography and other low light or IR light work.
I have been inside hundreds if not thousands of usb cameras as well as other cameras, even DSLR's have a IR filter on them. Specifically to remove the IR filter so that they are sensitive to the IR range. then you use a specific filter to block visible, I tend to use unexposed but developed 35mm film for my free source of IR pass visible blocking filters.
the RNC defined that as a cube 4 years ago.
current going rate is 2, 9mm rounds per package of ramen. or 2 packages of Shrimp flavor ramen.. the shrimp ones are just gross..
Be sure to hump your xBONE though..... as the ever loving Microsoft will save you.
