Submission + - The first quark supernova (arxivblog.com) 2

KentuckyFC writes: "The largest supernova ever recorded ain't what it seems. Astronomers watched this thing explode in real time last year and were amazed to see it release 100 times more energy than any other supernova. Now astrophysicists think the only way to account for all the energy is if the star were made entirely of quarks. That's cool because quark stars were proposed by Ed Witten at Princeton over 20 years ago."

A similar printer/scanner/copier/fax minus the parallel port is the Brother MFC-210C. I pick up ink refill tanks at the dollar store and just use a syringe to fill them up. A $1 refill tank lasted me through an entire school year. The only problem is the quality isn't on par with the latest stuff. Oh and it has good Linux drivers too.
