  • What the heck is a Higgs Boson?
  • Farming and deep-well petroleum exploration are theories, too; nobody books rain ahead, goes 7 miles down with a headlamp, or makes up the difference by accelerating in a faith field. And no, nobody actually works in math, fine art, particle physics or governance making Fractional Hall Positron Matter; it is tortoises, Alain Greienspan, vim, tcsh, and a big bag of azure kush all through. Yes we still have a long way to go, before we can grant 2-year certificates in Quantum Mechanics instead of Java; but as we get close, it will become possible to make an arbitrary mass of chocolate and hard cheese out of 1kg of chocolate and hard cheese (and take them 7km down a bore with a touchstone.) Or, book the foundations for cosmic safety and commerce if anyone gets out the vote for that sort of garbage.

  • 5 great jokes about engineers
  • The car calamity bit (stall successful; restart) shouldn't be the best solution, but it usually is (sometimes with modifiers that you have to stall in the shade at a drive-in or solar/LP charging station and ATM;) if a 'service engineer' is driving you just transfer context to a convenient upgraded instance, and if you have an ODB2 insurance dongle one calls them to ask what they changed. Clearing status bits (e.g. SteeringColumn.Collar.Valid(False)) by yanking on windows is less common, right?

  • Pulp packs a punch
  • stock ac fan, full of cheap toner hand vendor coveralls. heater triacs fail bodgy; or steppers do; fine. 'Remove Vermin Bones and Jewelry from Fuser' elided from panel corpus

  • Lighting apps boost LED usage
  • Next we'll complain quantum efficiency is too damn up for the X-Risks coefficient of this universe! While I appreciate innovation in fell promise and lack of foresight, the reality is that corporate sponsorship of pols just got more demanding; and the PoorCraft kickstarters for local government aren't drafting much yet. Don't dim your iPhone yet. I remain bullish on sunshine, but I am shorting puppies (they haven't been run in hours!) and continuing to support displays and display communication beyond static Q/R.

  • IBM, Solar Frontier look to copper, zinc, tin, sulfur, selenium for solar cells
  • Worst acronym this week in upstate NY? CZTS for epitaxial Cu/Zn on S / Sn should be what, CuZnSnS/CuSnZnS(cousinses), SZCSn (Czechsenn), SCuZnCu (Scoozzincue!)? Whichever the developers can liken best to 'Matches weathered light oak in a spray on' or 'for ten percent utilization, we made it glower in a shade plants like.' Better, self-powered, mold-resistant, tasteful, chestnut-gathering; pick any four. WE SAID FLASH NOT ALLCAPS.

  • It feels better to leave this stuff on a remote roof, but the gain is 10% rather than 30%, making it stiff competition with fancy solar window installs (on south sides.) Twice as awesome if it takes less passivation than the GaAs ones to be roofing, truck sides, siding, etc. and ages as well. Get it into the Yonkers Historic Building materials list sooner than later if whatever 90% it re-emits doesn't just make it look puce.... The process looks a lot simpler from the micrographs and suggestion of working under gas (no vacuum required, just the A/R glass gravure rollers.) EPRI hilarity is nonetheless chilling; what you get for hiring policy wonks to serve...facebook.

  • E Ink, Freescale enter IP agreement for eBook silicon
  • Running postscript, the font engines, and the MathML highlight tool in the touch side of the display would be awesome, but a controller chip's all right, I guess. How about IR emitters in there with the color/intensity layers and paper textures on the screen protector? Tough design work!

  • A tale of two digital-video converters
  • I read Government Coupon (w.r.t. converter boxes) where it said Rebate. Just highlight what I said, right-click, and select Translate> "Social Monarchic >> Austrian-Economic" please.

  • A tale of two digital-video converters
  • So this was the article where you reminded me of the time the Bush Administration paid you to get programmable ATSC tuners to encourage your participation in ATSC communication as a citizen. You ended up getting things that thinned channels and ''sidebands,'' compressing the signal in a lossy way, and one of them ate CPU cycles. Oddly the device did not even act as a much-discussed relay station with functions allowing appending streams on-channel and adding metadata. There was nothing about how you tied in cutdown processors and GbE cameras or encoded various sound streams, sidebands, etc. My memory is not going to get any better on this thing...was it really about gadgets to put VHS stuff on optical media?
