Play with matter and anti-matterSun, 14 Feb 10
The Large Hydron Collider blog report a simple drawing game from Feynman to easily explain particle physics. Let's draw anti-matter!
Using strange classesThu, 4 Feb 10
Interesting article at RIPE.NET who decided to start to use IP addresses; but they enabled that class on some BGP routers and noticed a lot of pollution.
We are really scraping the bottom of the barrel, seems it's time to pass to IPv6.

Apparently the future is the "Oracle SPARC Servers" and "Oracle open software solutions".

Debian Squeeze = kFreeBSD? OMG!Sun, 25 Oct 09
It is rumored that next release of Debian, codename Squeeze, will be based on the Debian kFreeBSD project.
That is, Debian distro built with standard GNU glibc but a FreeBSD kernel and modules. IMHO it was time the Linux people open their eyes and have a look at the FreeBSD way to keep things simple. As a FreeBSD user, I think the best would also to take the FreeBSD "world", also glibc and system V init are too much dispersive :D

Original news here at itwire, Debian announce here.
GNSS statusThu, 15 Oct 09
Wanna know about constellation status? if some satellites are in maintenance or disabled?
Here is available the complete status of GPS system. For GLONASS, the list is available here.
Instead for GALILEO we have the second satellite in progress, so no status sheet available. Same with COMPASS/BEIDOU, where two satellites are up and not much info about., 5 Oct 09
I like this interesting page from the staff, shortly about the meanings and ways of opensource, and why multimedia technologies are close to the requirement of freeness like open standards, protocols and procedures.
2009 would not be like '1984' - pt2Mon, 5 Oct 09
Again with the Kindle fact, the guy who have sued Amazon for having removed from his ebook reader an Orwell' book have win a settlement.
All I can said is prompting you to not buy DRM devices.
802.11nTue, 15 Sep 09
On September the 11th the IEEE have ratified the 802.11n standard, an 802.11a/g/h improvement to reach high bandwidth.
Since the draft 2.0 of the purposed standard, some manufacturer like Marvell and Broadcom had already begun selling 802.11n chipsets, speaking of 300MBps. The explanation of this bandwidth is theorically something like this article.
However, many things in real life goes differently: the coupling and multipath of the antennas from receiver to transmitter, the timings, the presence of many clients, ... I believe much more of a pratical testing article like this from tom's hardware, that shows a clearly improvement from the 802.11a/h, but a bandwidth of maximum 100Mbps and a range only a little improved.

2009 would not be like '1984'Thu, 6 Aug 09
A month ago Amazon, who is selling ebooks with his reader platform Kindle, was found to remove wirelessly the copies of "1984" and "Animal Farm" from customer devices.
The fact was reported on NYTimes. In detail the licensing company of the two Orwell' books doesn't really had those owning rights. So Amazon decided not only to remove the books from his store, but also from the already bought digital copies.
About this question started a controversy, some thinks it's right, some it's bad.
Personally I'm sure Amazon had done incorrectly, and already bought copies have had to be left untouched. A guy also lost his notes on the device: at least a paper book doesn't vanish!
