Ancient video of Steve Jobs launching the first Apple Mac found

binsamp

Oversold

Jobs claimed the 68000 eats x86 for breakfast and hyped the blazing speed of the Mac. I bought one. It was so glacially slow I took it back for a refund.

Field Agent Communications

"Field agents are in constant communication, he said."

As a field agent in GCHQ or NSA, I'd be leery of sending anything via email.

Re: No internet for the rest of the month ?

"My internet provider (Bell Canada) charges $45 for 3 Gb, $55 from 3 to 5Gb and $70 over 5 Gb to a monthly maximum of to 10Gb ."

Try Teksavvy. I pay $36.22 per month including HST for 300GB on a 6Mb/s DSL line and I can never use it all. I see they have added another option: 7 Mbps for onlly $24.99/month. I'll have to give them a call tomorrow.

Re: Back up?

If you have to back up locally, why bother with the cloud in the first place?

QEX Article "Sensor Package for High Altitude Ballooning"

By coincidence, the ham publication QEX for May/June 2012 has an interesting article titled "A Simple Sensor Package for High Altitude Ballooning," by John Post, KA5GSQ.

He discusses how to normalize the output voltage of the Honeywell ASDXACX015PAAA5 pressure sensor at 100,000 feet, which was one of the previously discussed options.There is a lot more information that might be worth reading. You can download the article at

LOHAN starts to feel the barometric pressure

Go the other way. Put a small amount of air in a balloon.

It will expand with altitude.

When it reaches the desired altitude, close a microswitch.

Firefox 5 beta slapped on Mozilla conveyer belt

Stop

FF4 and FF5 will have no place on my hard disk

CSS Animations? I thought we got rid of the BLINK and MARQUEE tags.

Some sites already do these things in javascript

That's why I use QuickJava and keep it turned off.

I wish the development team would stop fooling with trivial crap. Give me a browser that is immune to malware, loads instantly, and doesn't use hundreds of megabytes of memory.
