Tax levels and credits in an ideal democracy represent how much the society values various things. Carbon taxes with open source credits mean they don't like C02 in the atmosphere but like Linux. So yes, taxes on the whole should be increased to curb foreign lending, but that doesn't take away from legitimate shifts in a value for something like open source programming.

Mechanical AI Made In LittleBigPlanet 65

Laurens writes "Despite slow sales of LittleBigPlanet in the USA, you might have heard of the calculator made within the game, but now that has been topped. I found a fully-functioning AI machine which plays Tic-Tac-Toe against the player. Considering that you can't actually program in LBP, this feat is impressive; it is a machine which has mechanical AND and OR ports made of pistons and proximity detectors, a physically moving Program Counter, and hundreds of wires. The level is called 'Tic Tac Toe' and is by author Cristel." Another player created a similarly amazing level that is a recreation of John Conway's Game of Life.

Comment IPA for the win (Score 1) 512

I work in a cleanroom, and we use isopropyl alcohol to clean stuff. DO NOT use acetone, it will simply dissolve a bunch of stuff. Bleach will corrode stuff. Distilled or de-ionized water will take forever to do anything useful. For these reasons, IPA is the way to go. Ethyl alcohol is much better for drinking than cleaning.
