Even if you put the screen up by the window, with a mirror you can always move your head a bit to get a bit more visual context. With a camera and screen, that doesn't work. Unless they also put in head tracking, or use a 3d screen.
That one won't do 4K at any more than 30Hz refresh (HDMI 1.2 input only, no Display Port or dual-link DVI). And you won't have the same color calibration as a computer monitor. Other than that, if you are on a budget it's not a bad deal.
RHEL 7 Beta is based off Fedora 19, with a 3.10 kernel. Usually their beta cycles run about 6 months. Oh, and they heavily backport to their stable kernel (it is "stable", not meaning crashes less, but referring too the fact that the API/ABI doesn't change when they release updates).
Other than the not having to work part, we really do live like kings. We get to sit in a seat to be transported from place to place, our homes are heated and cooled, running hot water, plumbing, non-rancid food, quite a bit of food actually, we can pull up music and other entertainment on demand, and have great libraries at our disposal. The list goes on -- most royalty a couple centuries back didn't have it this good.
Why not just hook a microphone on the inside of the computer to pick up the fan noise, and use that as a random source? I'm sure there's some entropy in there.
That's why whenever I don't recognize the phone number, I'll pick up but don't say anything. If it is a human on the line, they will eventually say hello.
For that to happen, the charging would have to be via beamed RF energy instead of magnetic induction. What I'd rather see is a return to devices that only needed charging or battery replacements once per month or so. Like the old 2-way pagers I used to carry.
Personally, I've started syncing my files to a USB hard drive running off a Beagle Bone, via wifi, that sits in my vehicle. It syncs at night after I pull in. Now there is the possibility that the house will burn down, take my vehicle in the garage with it, but I figure I'm covered for a large part of the time when I'm at work (since my car is with me then).
Well here's a strange thought. If you don't have enough daylight after work, how about going to work an hour early, and getting out an hour early? Nothing really gets done early or late in the work day anyway, so co-ordinating with others' time in the office shouldn't bee that big of a deal (as long as everyone is there during a core 5-hour period).
I believe that for the most part, people don't have a "natural" talent for what they are good at -- instead, they have a strong desire for it, which makes the many hours of work they put in seem more like fun than work. In order to be good, you have to put in many hours (4 hours a day, for 10 years) of progressive practice -- constantly working at the edge of your current skill, and pushing that edge slowly forward. It is that way with programming, math, music, art, etc. But to dedicate 10,000 hours, you have to be able to somewhat enjoy what you are doing, or you will give up.
That is one thing that really gets under my skin -- when I am visiting with someone (i.e., I took the effort to go over to their space, whether it is a co-worker's office, or visiting with family), and their phone rings. No matter what we're in the middle of talking about, that phone call always gets priority.
I never understood why Star Trek ships had to establish a "standard orbit" to begin with. They have enormous amounts of power available along with the magic warp field. So why couldn't they keep themselves suspended in one spot above a planet, regardless of gravity?
Many ISPs will give you the same DHCP address if it sees the same MAC address. Often times the only way to get a different IP is to change your MAC.
However, if you are going through a home router, you have to change the MAC that the router advertises on the Internet side. Hopefully that's what he's doing. Some routers will also have the option of cloning your PC's MAC address for the Internet side.
I had problems initially with the adapter that came with my Nokia phone -- it was labeled as 1.5 amp. Got a bunch of errors on boot if a keyboard, mouse, and ethernet were all plugged in. Then I switched to the adapter that came with my Samsung galaxy nexus -- rock solid.
What I'd like to know, for anyone else having problems, does switching to a "known good" power source help? And what other good power sources are there that are readily available (such as maybe one of the Apple usb chargers)?
Possible that the person had a radio transmitter in Washington, to send out a single pulse to indicate whether to make a trade or not. Not hard to get a low bandwidth / low latency radio signal from Washington to Chicago.
