I pick future dead technologies



linux kernel monkey log Here's some thoughts about some hardware I was going to use, hardware I use daily, and hardware I'll probably use someday in the future. ... (more)

It turns out that I am extremely competent at picking future dead technologies when buying Lenovo laptops. My T61 purchase a few years ago included wireless USB. The same wireless USB that failed.

My most recent acquisition last year included Thunderbolt. Well that is dead too.

I wonder what I'll be picking next time...

The number one problem affecting the USA

I finally have a solution for the number one problem affecting the USA. That of course is the continued lack of adoption of the metric system, with a small side order of "use 24 hour clocks".

The solution is mandatory service in the military or NASA as picked by the people affected. Both organisations use metric and 24 hour clocks, so the blight of imperial units can finally be wiped out (and I no longer have to ask "which 8 o'clock did you mean?").

There are other benefits. It will help alleviate the high new- graduate unemployment rate, help more people understand the budget spending (~20% goes on military, ~0.5% on NASA), get more youth to vote since they will be affected by politics, wars, science etc and finally help with education since kids will know they need to prepare for their choice. A flawless plan!

Fun site



You know you're British When... (more)

Fun site. This one in particular gets me, as does the American penchant for not calling toilets toilets. In houses they are a half bathroom. Restaurants have restrooms (a room you do not rest in) or bathrooms (a room that has no bath).
