LOL lurking for a long time

you silly people fighting amongst yourselves: hot air signifying nothing
no productive results other than showing who has the biggest dicks
really silly.  you people here make my entertainment dayly

Terry M who really made me leave this site who because he is MENSA believes any prognostications he makes are true, without any logic or evidence.  Terry  is a real blowhard. 

Neven you are the worst, i hate to say it
Your paranoid viewpoint points to the fact that you
have never had to survive real hardships or deal with very devious and psychopathic people.   You do not trust anyone do you.. in such a case you should become a hermit who can only trust yourself or what you yourself experience...

Neven it is time to close the "the rest" channel, and get back to the real problems of climate change....

vegan is interesting for us rich people in the world
however the subsitence farmer who does not have airable farmland
must rely on meat/milk from grazing cows/sheep/goats from land that
in no way would support human edible food.

now we have taken the beef production way further than needed in
the rich west... but there will always be a need to obtain human
edible protein from inhospitable lands...

nobody wants to pay for safe and secure software.
for microsoft to do this would make the cost of windows at least 10,000$
so we get down to risk vs cost
which drives lots of people to just accept the risk....

when i found out about AMT many years ago, it was and still is worrysome, tho usually only used to manage corporate networks...certain people with err connections can probably do something with it...

Quote
AMT is designed into a secondary (service) processor located on the motherboard

AMT runs in a completely separate computer hidden in the northbridge chip on the motherboard.  It runs without an OS and can monitor the computer even if it is "turned off" as long as there is power to the computer.

russiagate is an elaborate plot carried out by elite operatives in the DNC?
Hmm very interesting, can you elaborate more please?


Your comprehension is incomprehensible.
Is this an attempt at a red herring, or simply an inability to follow rather simple sentence structures?
If English is a second language I apologize, but I do ask that you return to your English lessons.

aha, now an ad hominem attack, please terry respond, what facts do you have backing up your assertions that the DNC is responsible for russiagate.

it is really hard in online discussion boards to decide who is a sock puppet or who is not.  Putin has realized that by recruiting an army of puppetiers who attack any post/negative comment on the internet is the new propaganda victory.

so when i see unsubstaniated comments/reviews, i take them with a grain of salt, cause you see i can claim to be Frodo, and i can get proof like you would not believe.

because my sock puppet supporters will echo my comments, and provide background to prove i am real.

THIS is the new propaganda that Putin and his army, China and their army are now focusing on. 

It is not just the leaks from Russia, but the use of their sockpuppets to feed FUD on facebook and other social media sites that has is the root of the problem.

The creation of self driving car hardware and software is complex,involving CPUs, GPUs and FPGAs, mulitple sensors (cameras, lidars, sonars, radars), self learning algorithms and sensor fusion:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/drive-px.html#source=pr

so complicated in fact that safety certification to IEC61508 and ISO26262 (safety certfication standards) will not be possible, but some new way of assessing the safety of the self driving car will have to be developed.

It will be interesting to see what the NHTSA, other automobile safety authorities and insurance companies (OH and lawyers) have to say...

@AbruptSLR

wow
the world in in for a shit load of hurt...
you have echoed all my concerns.

there is unfort only one solution to humanities blight on our planet
major pandemics.

i predict, in my humble way, pandemics that will drop the world population by
over 50%.  maybe even more.  it is starting now with the old diseases:  tubuculosis, syphillis, ghonorreah, cholera,

followed by failing states with massive over population creating massive wars (syria e.g.)

sigh
oh well

the only response is better/faster/more convenient rapid transit.
self driving cars pick you up at home
deliver you to a local bus terminal
which takes you to a local train terminal

the only way to get rid of cars

and it has to be fast, and reliable and convenient

Permafrost / Re: This is not good (methane clathrates)
« on: April 19, 2017, 04:56:58 PM »
destabilization of sea methane clathrates is i think also a bigger problem..  while the PETM was caused potentially by seafloor rising, could a similar destabilization be caused by the warming of the oceans...

https://www.geolsoc.org.uk/Geoscientist/Archive/July-2008/Puddingstone-second-slice

Quote
An early (and still favoured) explanation is that the PETM was triggered by destabilisation of subsea methane hydrate deposits at quite shallow depths within the sediments draping the continental slopes (Dickens, 1999). But what could cause such destabilisation? One possible process is uplift of the sea floor – reducing the weight of water bearing down on the unstable hydrates (Maclennan and Jones, 2006). The key to their idea lies in modern-day Iceland, with its volcanoes, and the hot springs in which field geologists can relax happily in the worst of the weather (Figure 6). The Iceland hotspot already existed 55 million years ago (Figure 7).

Didn't Harper do something to hobble CANDU as he was closing down our medical isotope reactor(s)?
The medical isotope reactors in Chalk River were of a different beast, and the design of their replacements was flawed, and yes that project was shut down.

However the commercial CANDU technology is now owned by snc-lavalin.  They obtained  it from AECL in 2011, that's probably what you remember happening.

Candu heavy water reactors are a completely different beast.  China is planning on using Candu reactors to burn the fuel spent fuel from the light water reactors:

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/report-on-business/industry-news/energy-and-resources/snc-lavalin-strikes-deal-to-build-nuclear-reactors-in-china/article32000350/

I also think the Candu reactors have a very good safety design.

https://cna.ca/technology/energy/candu-technology/

In the back of my mind, i think the US went with the enriched fuel light water reactors in order to obtain the plutonium for their bombs....
