Peep peep.

Apocalypse orange

We left chad’s amp at doc watson’s pub and since amandoo and I already had ikea plans we offered to pick it up.

We put E85 in her subaru even though the ethanol pump said it was only for flexfuel vehicles.

Then a storm happened upon us. Amandoo spent 500 digital pictures in hopes of capturing lightning (we couldn’t figure out how to make her camera take long exposure shots).

I took a few with my iphone, I’d best describe the color of Philadelphia that day as apocalypse orange. The sky, the buildings, puddles, and pigeons.

Kenmore Elite freezer beeping | battery replacement

My parents’ Kenmore Elite freezer was beeping at them for weeks, displaying a “b” on the LED screen.

I wasn’t able to find much good info on the web about how to replace the battery so I decided to write this short blog.

It needed a new 9v battery which is replaced on the front of the freezer below the door.

Sign me up to beta test the first Memristor PC

Researchers at HP Labs have built the first working prototypes of an important new electronic component that may lead to instant-on PCs as well as analog computers that process information the way the human brain does.The new component is called a memristor, or memory resistor. Up until today, the circuit element had only been described in a series of mathematical equations written by Leon Chua, who in 1971 was an engineering student studying non-linear circuits. Chua knew the circuit element should exist — he even accurately outlined its properties and how it would work. Unfortunately, neither he nor the rest of the engineering community could come up with a physical manifestation that matched his mathematical expression.

Thirty-seven years later, a group of scientists from HP Labs has finally built real working memristors, thus adding a fourth basic circuit element to electrical circuit theory, one that will join the three better-known ones: the capacitor, resistor and the inductor.

Researchers believe the discovery will pave the way for instant-on PCs, more energy-efficient computers, and new analog computers that can process and associate information in a manner similar to that of the human brain.
