The Future is Tin: Meta-Material Stanene Offers 100% Efficiency in Electrical Transmission
Move over, graphene and carbyne — stanene, with 100% electrical efficiency at temperatures up to 100 degrees Celsius (212F), is here, and it wants to replace the crummy, high-resistance copper wires that are a big limiting factor in current computer chips. Where graphene is a single-atom-thick layer of carbon, stanene is a single-atom-thick layer of tin.
Just a strange number from MySQL:
By default 151 is the maximum permitted number of simultaneous client connections in MySQL 5.5
And then the issue related to it:
MySQL uses one thread per client connection and many active threads are performance killer. Usually a high number of concurrent connections executing queries in parallel can cause significant slowdown and increase chances for deadlocks. Prior to MySQL 5.5, it doesn’t scale well although MySQL is getting better and better since then — but still if you have hundreds of active connections doing real work (this doesn’t count sleeping [idle] connections) then the memory usage will grow. Each connection requires per thread buffers. Also implicit in memory tables require more memory plus memory requirement for global buffers. On top of that,
max_heap_table_sizethat each connection may use, although they are not allocated immediately per new connection.
Facebook has been doing a lot of work in this area. Just one example: Making MySQL accept connections faster; I strongly encourage you to read if you have a busy MySQL server.

GTA IV VR
Demo of game played with Oculus Rift, a WiiMote, and the Cyberith Virtualizer - video embedded below:
In this video, you see me in GTA 4 VR with the Virtualizer, the Oculus Rift and a Wii mote. I totally forgot reality and my mind was in Liberty City.
I also show the sitting function of the Virtualizer in this video. You can adjust it to your body height and use it while driving a car or a tank, sitting in a helicopter or other vehicles. You can also use it to rest a while when you are exhausted of escaping from the cops hehe.
A computer program is trying to learn common sense by analysing images 24 hours a day.
The aim is to see if computers can learn, in the same way a human would, what links images, to help them better understand the visual world.
oh look! it works! now to put it in the case and install the operating system. ubuntu or windows 8.1?
invited to Elder Scrolls Online Beta the day after i get my thermal paste so i can build my new computer? i think not.
Google’s Machine Learning Algorithms Outpacing Engineers’ Ability to Understand How they Work
“Google no longer understands how its “deep learning” decision-making computer systems have made themselves so good at recognizing things in photos.
What stunned [Google Software Engineer] Quoc V. Le is that the software has learned to pick out features in things like paper shredders that people can’t easily spot – you’ve seen one shredder, you’ve seen them all, practically. But not so for Google’s monster.
Many of Quoc’s pals had trouble identifying paper shredders when he showed them pictures of the machines, he said. The computer system has a greater success rate, and he isn’t quite sure how he could write a program to do this.
Google researchers can no longer explain exactly how the system has learned to spot certain objects, because the programming appears to think independently from its creators, and its complex cognitive processes are inscrutable. "
