If you get off on math, physics, chemistry, electricity, magnetics, acoustics, sound, frequency, and music, you have to see this.

I already posted this in the music video thread, but it's just way toooooo interesting to not post here.

Like, FFS... Where can you see someone actually use a FARADAY SUIT?!?!

Faraday suit? Tesla coils? That's just awesome beyond awesome!  Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup Thmbsup

Standing waves. And standing waves of flames!

It's damn hard to beat that for coolness!

Be sure to follow up and check out the "how we did it" videos. They give more insight, like how video frame rates relate to what you see.

A FARADAY SUIT!

Laserhacker.com - one of the better alternative power project websites I've ever visited. I'm in the process of gathering materials to try out the crystal power cell project detailed here - and thinking of adapting the supercapacitor boost pack project for a friend's powerboat.

Check it out. It's time well spent.

Dammit 40! I've got clients bum-rushing me with projects, and hard pressed for time, and then you post that and POOF~! There goes my time! tongue

I watched all the vids there, and did even more research... and dammit... I'll have to spend more time in January! tongue

I've been following John Hutchison for a few years, and this is an extension on what he's been doing. It's bloody darn cool stuff!

What I really want is a commercial version of all this stuff... I don't care if I have to build it myself or buy it - I just want to NOT rely on grid electricity.

FWIW - I've spent far too many weeks looking into all manner of these things. Solar, geothermal, crystal, wind, tide, magnetic, etc. etc. etc. My current train of thought is that the plasma cosmologists/physicists are on the right track. We live in an electric universe, and not a material one -- the material universe is just an illusion.

@Ren - I think enough people want it to work right now that the single biggest threat is some people in the Bitcoin community doing something completely jive to torpedo it. I remember the heady early days of the libertarian party when everybody thought this was finally the big break with the past we'd all been waiting for. Surprise! Surprise!

All it takes is one or two jerks to poison the well. I already see that happening over in the FOSS world where the stakes are perhaps even higher.

I don't know if the sudden reduction in serious governmental push-back is a good thing or a bad thing. Maybe those that would see Bitcoin gone are banking on the "fall from grace" so many new social movements too regularly suffer. If so, the odds are certainly in their favor.

Good luck Bitcoin. smiley

Dammit... I'm into my second bottle (750 ml) of ginger ale here that I brewed with Lalvin EC-1118...

But you raise really good points, and I'll be damned if I'll let a bit of intoxication fart with a response~! Grin  drinksmiley

I'm not going to address any libertarian stuff though. I like this thread in the Living Room. Wink (I do sympathise with libertarians though.)

But dammit, I just can't resist this!

Glenn Beck put out a post:

Quote
Who is your pick for Person of the Year? Post your pick in the comments. We'll reveal the winner tomorrow.

I know a lot of people here will hate Glenn Beck... but here's the kicker... People are SCREAMING for Larken Rose!!!

If Glenn interviews Larken, Larken will tear Glenn a new asshole. In his forehead. With a voluntaryist chainsaw. Big "V" shape there. Insert more explicit imagery here.

If you hate Glenn Beck, you'll want to see that interview, if it happens. (I kind of doubt it will though as Glenn isn't in Larken's league -- few are.)

But I think you're wrong about the comparison there. A few jerks can't spoil Bitcoin because it's decentralised, and at any time the miners can tell the Bitcoin development team to go f**k themselves.

It would take a LOT of assholes~! Grin

There's a balance in Bitcoin that doesn't exist in other systems. You can create any code you want for Bitcoin and run it. But that doesn't mean that anyone else will do the same. One or two assholes can't poison the pie here. It takes a massive number of assholes to do it.

@SeraphimLabs should chime in. He's up on the topic, and can probably offer a different perspective.



On a personal note, I was talking with my sister on video chat tonight. She was recanting the friggin' nightmares she had to go through simply to pay for her airplane ticket to get here for Christmas.

Hint: NONE of her problems would be problems with Bitcoin.

Bitcoin is just a better way to pay people. If you've not used it, you won't understand just how much easier it is.

Bitcoin allows ANYONE to accept payments from ANYONE from ANYWHERE. This is some majorly badass wicked cool stuff! You just CANNOT do that through traditional payment systems.
10  Other Software / Developer's Corner / Why do YouTube views freeze at 301? (Just computing history) on: December 17, 2014, 07:39:25 AM
For those that have noticed how YouTube view counts freeze at 301, you'll likely enjoy this as a fun little tour through some obscure Internet history.

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIkhgagvrjI" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIkhgagvrjI</a>

tl;dw - They have to scrutinise video counts, and decided on a threshold to do it. i.e. 300. However, the code was:

Formatted for Generic Code with the GeSHI Syntax Highlighter [copy or print]
  1. if (viewcount <= 300) { viewcount++; }
  2. else {...

So, 301 got counted.

It has nothing to do with number types or data size limits or anything like that.

Here's one for those that love math, numbers, and computing. Or the ADHD OCDs out there. Grin

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXjlR2OK1kM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXjlR2OK1kM</a>

tl;dr - The leading number in any distribution of sets of numbers with many orders of magnitude skews towards 1 and slopes down to 9 at the lowest. And the rule works for any base (10, 2, 16, 8, 60, etc.).

That's pretty damn cool to know. I'd never thought about it, but it makes perfect sense.

This is a great little story at the Internet Archive:

http://www.reddit.com/r/B..._at_the_internet_archive/

Quote
My boss (Brewster Kahle), who runs the Internet Archive (archive.org, Wayback) just sent this to employees. I figure it had interest in the bitcoin world that we have someone matching bitcoin contributions to give end-of-year bonuses, which means all the employees are getting on the bitcoin wagon. I asked for permission to reprint the letter, which is below (minus a bitcoin how-to he included at the bottom).



Archive Staff,

To both thank the staff of the Internet Archive for a solid year of building towards Universal Access to All Knowledge, and to support Bitcoin by keeping bitcoins in circulation, the Internet Archive will gift bitcoins at the end of this year to participating Internet Archive employees. The bitcoins for this program are donated by an anonymous donor that is matching the December bitcoin donations from our supporters.

The Bitcoins donated via https://archive.org/donate/bitcoin.php by our supporters will go to servers and other infrastructure, but a generous match is specifically to support end-of-year gifts of bitcoins to employees that are likely to spend the bitcoin in interesting ways. We also hope that this match will encourage more people to donate Bitcoin to the Internet Archive.

To do this, we will divide the number of Bitcoins donated in December among the full time Internet Archive employees that get their own bitcoin wallets (like an account), and will try to use the bitcoins.

Currently, people have donated about 11BTC to the Internet Archive since our fundraising started, which, at current price and if every staff member participated, it would be about $25. This is likely to be higher as more donations come in and not everyone will participate. We will cap this at $1k per employee if things go too far one way or another.

What can you do with your year-end Bitcoin gift? (see below for links) * Buy Sushi: I do almost every week on Clement Street-- really great. * Buy Cupcakes, buy groceries on Haight Street * Buy things at online stores * Donate to the Internet Archive, EFF, Wikipedia, etc. * Exchange for cash * Tip other people via twitter and reddit (I used changetip.com to do this via twitter, which is fun)

Who can help you figure out bitcoin? There is an internal group skype chat "bitcoin players" that has been helpful. June can add you if you would like.

Jacques can also help in explaining the program. Please bear with him/us, since I just sprang this on him on Friday.

^ There are movies and TV shows where I keep hoping to see each and every character's throat slit with a nice, sharp serrated blade. Clean through to decapitation. So that I can friggin' cheer. Because they're so friggin' annoying.

It's horrible when the whole time you're watching, you're also screaming in your head, "PLEASE JUST F***ING DIE ALREADY!!!" About the main characters.

I'm thinking I'll skip the dragon girl whatever flick.

Besides, I can't stand reading captions any more. Did that for over a decade. No longer fun.
