Very cool ones.
OHHH you wrote H3LL!!! That makes my day. lol

Oh damn SparcStations. Memories. Hey yes, the way cool Solaris kernel. Kids are missing all that nowadays. Sad. But I guess that's what the evolution of technology does. Before the Mac in 1984 there was these HUGE beasts. Hahaha

And they dumped like, 10K of them into a landfill or something?  Or was it they cost $10K and I'm thinking of the NES ET game they dumped into a landfill?  (Excuse me, I'm a tad tired, Jean had a blood sugar incident so I've been up all night.)

As for those old behemoths, my dad has stories about running boxes of punch cards through them while in college.  And I thought I had it bad with dumb terminals and line printers!  Now you can run an entire OS off a flash drive smaller than my Zippo.

Dude, we're old.
And I did the hell thing for you 'cause Crowgrilla.  big_smile

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Yeah they're all dumped apart some still in museums I guess.
I saw a documentary about those drilled cards and these beasts a while back. It was crazy. Now everything gets smaller and smaller. Can't wait for microscopic drives. Think they even got some done but not sure about that.

Yes we're old. In age that is, in the mind it's a totally different thing. lol

I was sure you'd like that guy... I think he rocks.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

In mind?  I have a stuffed monkey next to me.  I often talk to him.  But that's how we roll, that's how we get the ladies!

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I need to talk to a stuffed monkey too. Looks like it could solve my lady's problem. lol

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Cool, Orbiter found an old Soviet lander from 1971. Nice.

Saw that just now on Carson Daly and I gotta say that it's the most amazing leg replacement I've ever seen. Dude said that when designing it, he didn't think so much about the biological but rather the mechanical aspect and yes, woahhh!!!

I agree with him 666%.

Let's build Spaceships, not bombs. lol

OH MY DEMON!!! Insanely wild. I'm curious about the why, how, what of this, I'll check it out later.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

That is unbelievable.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

I think that that is an example of a wave cloud.

Here are some more pics.

It seems it's another way earth likes to funk with our brains.  Sneaky critter, her!  lol

Pretty much, yes. Critter indeed.

Yeah I was checking that out. The Hubble gets some incredibly amazing images of what's out there. Here's a view of the Sombrero Galaxy. How cool...

Yeah what Hubble shoots is so damn beautiful.
That Sombrero one is extremely cool.

I should order the DVD of Hubble with DiCaprio commenting. What I saw from it looks wildly nice.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Sombrero Galaxy is a very very jaunty hat!

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Space debris. Crazy how much crap is flying up there.
Cool to see that they're planning to take action.

Leave anything alone long enough, and it'll draw a dong.
