vacsealrIf the truth must be told, the vacuum sealer is one of the best acquisitions for your kitchen. It will prove to be the best preserver you have ever spent your money on. You are sure to get good value on every dime you spend on it. If you have been making use of some other inconvenient storage methods, it is high time you started using the sealer. You will love the outcome in all sense of the word. It is also not too expensive. In fact, every dime you spend on it worth it. If you need to store food on emergency, then this is exactly what you need.

How to use it

The vacuum sealer does not actually work like the freezer does. It does things in an …

Love To Get My Hands On A Hyperspectral Imager

Posted by admin under Uncategorized (No Respond)

hyper-camWhile I’d guess that every seriously techno-loving geek out there would certainly love getting their greasy paws on a Hyperspectral imager, there are probably very few that ever really touched one. Hyperspectral imaging tends to be one of those areas that very few people even get close to, mainly because the equipment is so incredibly specialized. I’ve only ever actually seen one hyperspectral imager up close – this one here – and I will say that although its outside appearance wasn’t really all that much to talk about (it looks a lot like an older LCD projector, frankly), it is a pretty fantastic device.

Applications

Hyperspectral imaging equipment like the one linked above tend to be used in a ton of different applications where you have to go beneath the …

When RAID Stops Serving Its Purpose

Posted by admin under Servers (No Respond)

raid-01Having been a user of computer for a number of years already, you have probably experienced many problems with this device. Without a doubt, the most disappointing circumstance that anybody can ever have with computers is losing valuable files. Some fail to recover important records of their businesses because of hard disk failure. The others miss to have backup copies of photos and videos which they have saved on their computer. Imagine how devastating it can be.

By good luck, RAID came to being. It stands up for Redundant Array of Independent Disks. It meant Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks before but because the word inexpensive is very subjective, it was changed to independent. This technology allows users to save their files on more than one disk. This lessens …

Galileo: Great Work From A Space Voyager

Electricity and Heat

Galileo concentrated many of its close-up observations on a few selected targets known to be interesting. One of these was the volcano Prometheus, source of the moon’s longest-lived volcanic eruption. Prometheus’s 70-km-high plume was first seen by Voyager 1 in March 1979. Mysteriously, though, both Prometheus and the bright ring of fallout debris that surrounds it moved 85 km to the west in the 17 years between the Voyager flybys and the first Galileo images. The spacecraft has now shown us both how the plume is generated and the reason for its mysterious migration (1). The towering column rises not from the throat of the volcano, where magma first reaches the surface, but from the far end of a huge, 100-km-long lava flow. All the while the

Dealing With Server Disk Problems, By Manufacturer

Posted by admin under Servers (1 Respond)

dpwrAvoiding bad situations is better than trying to figure a way out of it after it happens. A lot of people probably have heard of HP ProLiant disk problems and they are avoiding these at all cost, even if it means selling their HP hard drive and buying another brand of hard drive. These problems with HP are never a surprise. Just like when they released their old hard drive two or three years ago, they released it early as well, that is why people during those times are also encountering the same problems as the ones now. A lot of people thought they can send it over to a technician and have them fix it. That is where they are wrong. It is indeed very hard for people to …

Innovation In Print? Surely That Can’t Be True…

Posted by admin under Uncategorized (No Respond)

With its market share dominance, Kennesaw, Ga.-based Heidelberg USA is a leader in developing new technology for sheetfed printing, including closed-loop innovations.

Spectrophotometric process control systems, based on an independent color space such as CIELAB, have become an indispensable on-press tool to achieve color quickly and hold consistently high-quality colors in the pressroom, explains von Rumohr.

Printing managers look for tools that help their operators become more effective in predicting results at the highest quality and minimizing waste, he says.

NO MORE COLOR BARS?

There is also a growing need for on-line spectrophotometric systems that reduce the need for color bars, meaning directly measuring in the image and allowing integration with digital prepress. Heidelberg’s latest development, the ImageControl CPC 24 on-line spectrophotometer system does exactly that, says von Rumohr. It …

The New Millenium Space Program: Highlights

Posted by admin under Space (Comments Off on The New Millenium Space Program: Highlights)

ionThe ion thruster uses electricity to accelerate charged xenon atoms to speeds of 30 miles (50 km) per second. In contrast, the best chemical thrusters burn hydrogen and oxygen to make water vapor and then shoot the water out of a nozzle at 3 miles per second. The faster the gas is shot out of the thruster, the less fuel is needed to push the spacecraft a given amount. A spacecraft powered by an ion thruster can therefore reach its destination with only one-tenth the fuel of a chemical rocket. This kind of lean propulsion is essential for difficult future missions such as a Neptune orbiter.

Soon after launch, Deep Space 1’s ion thruster shut down several times when particles of debris shorted out the high-voltage grids that accelerate the

Here we interview three of the most powerful women in British IT. Among the women who didn’t quite make our top three, we found one attention-grabbing example that contrasts with a company’s male marketing image. Did you know that when it comes to the to job in IT, the man from Del Monte is a woman?

One Genius, Multiple Discoveries: Carl Sagan

Posted by admin under Space (No Respond)
Carl Sagan

Carl Sagan

Sagan would soon become embroiled in heated debates about the Mariner 2 probe, which would fly to Venus. One key question was whether Mariner 2 should carry a camera. Sagan and his colleagues argued long and hard about this. Nowadays, it is difficult to imagine a time when scientists didn’t naturally place cameras aboard robotic spacecraft. We are accustomed to the spectacular images from, say, the Hubble Space Telescope, and from the Mars Pathfinder probe. These spacecraft are to space what Ansel Adams was to the American West.

But decades ago, few astronomers anticipated this breathtaking bumper crop of space imagery. Back then, telescopes offered only murky images of the planets. According to traditional accounts of modern astronomy, many astronomers regarded planetary astronomy as somewhat declasse, a holdover

Sometimes Accidents Create Space Discoveries

Posted by admin under Space, Star Hunting (No Respond)

sacsThe spacecraft’s dramatic fate was cast in June 2000, when the science team and NASA agreed to let NEAR Shoemaker drop to the surface. By then the spacecraft had been orbiting the 33-km-long asteroid for only four months of its year-long study, but it already had exceeded the mission’s original expectations. Pictures of potato-shaped Eros were streaming to Earth at an average of 500 per day and would eventually total 160,000 (some 10 times more than planned). Careful measurements of the asteroid’s shape and mass yielded an overall density of 2.7 grams per cubic centimeter, implying that Eros is more or less solid rock with many crisscrossing internal fractures. This is a far cry from the “rubble pile” 253 Mathilde. With an overall density of just 1.3 g/cm3, determined during
