  1. Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated, I am home from the hospital, shaking off the last of the infection. Hospital workers are superstars

  2. Apple II was from back in the day of interrupts. USB is polled. Plug a direct interrupt keyboard into a PC you are gonna get a snappier response
  3. Since Ku band spectrum is used in defense radars I don't think it will have much trouble with weather. I need to do some checking up but I'm not sure any of the air to ground frequencies starlink is using will suffer too much from anything but the most severe weather Ka band is used more for police radar and some of them have been known to have issues in rain, but I am not sure if those were specifically Ka band radars that had that issue
  4. I'd wanna test with a new cable. If you wake the computer and THEN turn on the screen does it do the same? Do you have a DP to DVI adapter you could use to see if the other monitor has the same issue from the DP ports?
  5. What happens if you turn the power of the monitor off and back on without unplugging the DP? Could be a power saving on the monitor, enough time asleep it powers off, I have a TV that does that. Could be an iffy wire in the DP cable, you might try another. Do you have the model numbers of the monitor?
  6. My main concern with this flaw was the supply chain angle. being alone in the room with such a machine at any point in its life compromises it for the rest of its life. thru all the different clients and locations it services
  7. I was excited to see my post headlining WAN show only to hear my name was incorrectly transcribed
  8. I have multiple sources already, the verge is a few rungs lower than whats already linked, in my mind. The release from the security researchers themselves is the big one to read. https://www.ptsecurity.com/ww-en/about/news/unfixable-vulnerability-in-intel-chipsets-threatens-users-and-content-rightsholders/
  9. Security specialists at Positive Technologies claim to have found an unfixable security flaw in Intel CPUs. Specifically in the Converged Security and Management Engine (CSME). They claim that while it is difficult to exploit it is a vulnerability that cannot be patched and can lead to the execution of malicious code and commandeering of the entire PC. The CSME is the built in "hypervisor" on Intel CPUs that initializes the boot up process for the chip as a whole. They claim that the vulnerability is baked into the silicon itself and cannot be patched away. And physical
  10. Nobody is making massive sheets, and the other processes require harsh solvents and furnaces. And the point here is having graphene available at a fraction of the price for all the uses of it, from concrete to meta-materials
  11. The key to scalability here is the actual process, the "flash". Even if scalability requires parallel processing rather than larger chambers it could be easily automated and scaled up. I actually had an idea for an automated coal conversion process. You grind coal into coal dust, feed it into tablet presses, feed the tablets into a hopper, tablets go into a revolver style cylinder, the cylinder rotates between the feeder and the electrodes, flash, as the cylinder keeps turning the graphene and gasses are forced out of the chamber with compressed air, cylinder keeps turning to accept another ta
  12. This method as in the OP or the later comment? Why would anyone in the market pass up the ability to produce graphene for pennies on the dollar compared to old tech?
