Is it weird that I think Betty Bowers is kind of hot?

Cool. That won't be a problem :) Love the pic.

Very cool.
 
My newest 360 video is finally finished rendering. 1300 hours of CPU time and 500 billion pixels all wrapped up into an 8 minute journey.

This works well in YouTube's 360 video viewer on desktop Chrome or the iOS/Android app. Looks even better in the Rift or Gear VR. You can download the mp4 vid file at Archive.org  https://archive.org/details/FataMorganaVR

Wow! Earth's clock found embedded in a Protein!

In a remarkable finding, scientists discover a chronobiological existence of the Earth's 24 cycle encoded in the KaiC protein at the atomic level!

"A collaborative group of Japanese researchers has demonstrated that the Earth's daily rotation period (24 hours) is encoded in the KaiC protein at the atomic level, a small, 10 nm-diameter biomolecule expressed in cyanobacterial cells (Image 1).

The results of this joint research will help elucidate a longstanding question in chronobiology: How is the circadian period of biological clocks determined? The results will also help understand the basic molecular mechanism of the biological clock. This knowledge might contribute to the development of therapies for disorders associated with abnormal circadian rhythms.

The results will be disclosed online on June 25, 2015 in Science Express, the electronic version of Science."

"Using femtosecond lasers (a femtosecond is a quadrillionth of a second, and the lasers transmit bursts that last 30 to 270 femtoseconds), the team can make holograms that are safe to touch. The images are three-dimensional, with resolutions up to 200,000 dots per second. The voxels are light emitted by plasma that's created when the laser's focused energy ionizes the air.
When touched, the laser feels like sandpaper, says principal investigator Yoichi Ochiai, although some participants thought the plasma felt a little like a static shock."

Wow.
 
If this system performs as claimed, it will be undeniable. It will be abundantly clear, or it won't.


D-Wave’s quantum computer runs a quantum annealing algorithm to find the lowest points, corresponding to optimal or near optimal solutions, in a virtual “energy landscape.” Every additional qubit doubles the search space of the processor. At 1000 qubits, the new processor considers 2^1000 possibilities simultaneously, a search space which dwarfs the 2^512 possibilities available to the 512-qubit D-Wave Two. ‪In fact, the new search space contains far more possibilities than there are ‪particles in the observable universe.

New Milestone Will Enable System to Address Larger and More Complex Problems. Palo Alto, CA - June 22, 2015 - D-Wave Systems Inc., the world's first quantum computing company, today announced that it has broken the 1000 qubit barrier, developing a processor about double the size of D-Wave's ...

Story
Tagline
Father, programmer
Introduction
I am a computer programmer and designer, and father of three great kids.

My experience is in automation in the mining industry. I enjoy learning and teaching.

I mainly work in C++ but also enjoy coding in straight C, Python, and JavaScript.
Bragging rights
Wrote my fist assembly language program when I was 10, on a C64. It just printed my name. I wouldn't trade my life for any amount of money.

Excellent, friendly service, and they know what they're doing. If you live in Melbourne and need a locksmith or a safe, check these guys out.
