Pluto: Stay tuned

Posted by Serguei2, in Pluto 24 August 2015 · 61 views

"Why hasn’t this website included any new images from New Horizons since July? As planned, New Horizons itself is on a bit of a post-flyby break, currently sending back lower data-rate information collected by the energetic particle, solar wind and space dust instruments. It will resume sending flyby images and other data in early September.

I begin to use the new mailbox from Canada post. 
 

 
Yeah. The mailbox is other side of the main road (route 138) when vans come and go everyday.
 

 
This mailbox is nicer than the traditional blue-red mailboxes.
 
It even has drawings in the sides.
 

 
 The other side and back.

Unity

Posted by Serguei2, 07 August 2015 · 92 views

I noted some websites now support Unity to play games unstead Flash.
 
So I decided to try Unity too.
 
 
If the installer is about 700 kb, the whole installation takes forever to load. I suspect the data is about one gig or even more.
 
I first thought Unity is a plug-in for browsers but it's something else.
 
After the whole ins...

Disk drive's higher price than the computer itself

Posted by Serguei2, 04 August 2015 · 88 views

I noted in mid 1980s the disk drive becomes popular to North-America even if it costs more than the computer itself
 

 
If you think the disk drive at $249 is expensive, take a look when the Commodore 64 is introduced in 1982.

Commodore 64 is at $599.00 and the disk drive at $399.95...

UHD television sets

Posted by Serguei2, 16 July 2015 · 137 views

 
UHD is the next resolution of the television.
 
I saw few UHD television sets at the store.
 
I first thought the UHD would be the same resolution like the wides creen on movie theater but then, I found on the wiki: https://en.wikipedia...tion_television , UHD is still 16:9 like HD but with higher resolution...


My modem needs rest

Posted by Serguei2, 11 July 2015 · 113 views

I learned somethng new this week.
 
To upload large files (specially videos,  over 50 megs), you have to turn off the modem and wait about 30 minutes.
 
Or else, the modem will disconnect by itself and you have to upload again from the start.
 
 
STUPID MODEM!!!

The scientists still don't sure about the bright spots what it is. 
 
Also they found a pyramid-shape peak. What's it could be?
