After ChatGPT disruption, Stack Overflow lays off 28 percent of staff https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2023/10/after-chatgpt-disruption-stack-overflow-lays-off-28-per cent-of-staff/ The popular developer forum is still hunting for a "path to profitability." It would be a pity if Stackoverflow disappeared. I personally think it is one of the best sites when looking for software solutions, he

LEDs and lasers get way more efficient when they are cold. But their junction drop increases too. So it seems that driving them from some magical Thevenin source would temperature compensate the light output. Has anyone done this? I need to hold some dBm level from a laser source from -40 to +85C and that might be a simple way to do it.

There has been conjecture here about lithium battery ignition, thermal runaway, and whether any measurements could provide useful warning of a possible cell explosion. Waiting for my biscuits to cook, a (very) little research turns up not much about failure dynamics. Most studies measure external cell temperature as indicators of thermal runaway. I found one study, from NREL, that used f...

'New research, based largely on information from the Copernicus Sentinel-1 and ESA’s CryoSat satellite missions, has revealed alarming findings about the state of Antarctica's ice shelves: 40% of these floating shelves have significantly reduced in volume over the past quarter-century. While this underscores the accelerating impacts of climate change on the world's southernm


RJ45 (8P8C) alternatives IN USE for ethernet

It seems like nothing is coming close to replacing (or, acting as an alternative) RJ45's for ethernet applications. I've encountered ND9's and M8's/M12's on some kit but primarily industrial applications. Any other alternatives that are in "widespread" use (i.e., an application domain with which I might have to interact so "plan ahead")? For daughtercard connections, I imagine anythin...

I just "upgraded" from Windows 7 to 11. The new PC is a lot faster running Spice. But the File Explorer is a horror. When I drag/drop a file, the cursor becomes a giant ugly icon. When I copy a file where a copy already exists, I have to go through a secondary dialog to compare file attributes. If I right-click on a file, simple things like delete and rename are a secondary operation!...

China'a birthrate hit a 70 year low and their housing market is taking a hit. I remember Mao-Tse-Tung's one child policy. It sounded like he had a helluva idea. What's that old saying about pendulums?
