Yep, my first post as I am trying to find out if I am elligebli or somethink like that to post a post. My youtube is very slow, or has a latency of more then a minute for vids that are not my own. How to get some info on that, I had hopes that there was a news item on El Reg 'bout this.

Sorry for the inconvenience if any caused.

Adds or Drugs (Meds) ?

Does remind me of a news topic a few days ago, a bloke bought a pharma company that sells the only approved drug in USA for some cancer like illness, then turned up the price from 1k5 to 50k.

How to build a starship - and why we should start thinking about it now

Louis Schreurs BEng

Re: Coms; gluons

We will have to wait 'till we know more, i.e. enough 'bout entangled fundamental particles, using gluons that bind them. Then we will be able to communicate ''instantly'' in ''real time''. It's possible but will take time to develop, and to develop/think of the theory behind it. Perhaps when we've gotten that far we will have solved the problem of ''speed''/acceleration also.

Day One

Cars with an ECU for emisssions control have had the mapping for passing legislations testing in it since day one. (Uhm, also with NO ECU, the mechanical/electrical sensors/valves/whatnot would have a time/temperature/pressure/whatnot profile to meet test requirements.)

Mapping is always suited to the test the legislator requires the car/vehicle to pass. All other circumstances that are not in the test just are mapped according to common sense to get a balanced economy/power/lifetime/u name I.T. performance of the car and drive-train.

Legislators testing-cycles do not conform with individual driving styles. This has been an issue for years and years and .....

So What Is Cheating?????????

BTW this is why you never get the mileage that test-results promise.

How to build a server room: Back to basics

Louis Schreurs BEng

You are trolling or miss the point in this discussion or I did not pick up on intended sarcasm. Other then that you are also wrong because of inductional loads give rise to "blind power' or cos phi related currents. Excuse me if/when I am using wrong technical terms/words since I am not a native english speaking person.

After Googling translate I might have had to use the phrase "electrically reactive power".

Just to be clear, you get an extra load in current besides the power the equipment will draw just for quenching it's power thirst.

Post-pub nosh neckfiller: Uitsmijter

Louis Schreurs BEng
Headmaster

The real true basic uitsmijter is one slice of bread with one fried egg on top of it, salt and pepper to taste . With pickled onions and sweet and sour pickles as a preferred side dish, ham is almost allways under the egg, while cheese is something that came popular after people got to know the cheeseburger at McDonalds. Also the precise basic recipe is dependent on geographical location. uhm regional I mean, or something like that.

Yes Minister

"We have undoubtedly seen this technology flown in controlled airspace, we have undoubtedly seen it used to harass people, and we have seen it flown in contravention of the air navigation orders, so I think that concern arises by the fact that there is clearly a means of offending that we do not seem to be able necessarily to address quickly,"

This reminds me of the TV series Yes Minister and Yes, PM

Applelutely fappulous: Fashionistas bow down before the JESUS PHONE

Louis Schreurs BEng

I would like my tech equipment to be good at it's job. Also I would like my tech equipment give bang for the buck in the long term. Not only professional tech I mean. I like to my stereo amp to run for years, not blow it's transistors after a years use. Modern tech seems to not do that. It seems to me that every one or two years you need to replace your hardware to keep up with things. Also these thingies tend to brake down early. Now Apple gets on this bandwagon, as it supposedly did with it's I-foon. Fashionistas have at least two times per year their gear changed, summer and wintercollection, with very little possibility to be able to wear last years summer cloth next summer. I guess this watch will get a revamp every half year, so Apple will be able to sell two watches per year, year after year. I bore out at this point, I'll stop my rant here at this .

The sound of silence: One excited atom is so quiet that the human ear cannot detect it

Louis Schreurs BEng

Re: Puzzled...

The atom vibrates, this is the medium. It doesn't propagate, but that doesn't matter. So sound is vibration, propagation is secondary.
