Early Breakup of the Beaufort Sea Ice

Every spring, the expansive pack of sea ice that coats the Beaufort Sea (https://goo.gl/t6YIqQ) during the winter starts to thin and break up when the spring sunlight arrives and temperatures rise. Normally, that breakup does not reach full swing until late May. In 2016, much of the Beaufort Sea’s ice started breaking up by mid-April.

Take a look at the images showing the break up of sea ice in April 2014, 2015, and 2016. Clearly visible is the extent of open water in 2016, showing the early break up of the ice.

Milky Way and Planets Near Opposition

In this early May night skyscape, a mountain road near Bursa, Turkey seems to lead toward bright planets Mars and Saturn and the center of our Milky Way Galaxy, a direction nearly opposite the Sun in planet Earth's sky. The brightest celestial beacon on the scene, Mars, reaches its opposition tonight and Saturn in early June. Both will remain nearly opposite the Sun, up all night and close to Earth for the coming weeks, so the time is right for good telescopic viewing. Mars and Saturn form the tight celestial triangle with red giant star Antares just right of the Milky Way's central bulge. But tonight the Moon is also at opposition. Easy to see near bright Mars and Saturn, the Full Moon's light will wash out the central Milky Way's fainter starlight though, even in dark mountain skies.

Guangzhou FriendlyARM Compute Tech has just launched an Android/Linux octa core board for $35 ($45 with shipping).
A few weeks after introducing NanoPC-T3 single board computer based on Samsung S5P6818 octa-core Cortex A53 processor, FriendlyARM is now launching a cost-down version called NanoPi M3 for just $35 with 1GB RAM, and booting from a micro SD card. NanoPi_M3. NanoPi M3 board specifications: ...

Stack overflow architecture. Very interesting read on the load and technology used in backend! http://nickcraver.com/blog/2016/02/17/stack-overflow-the-architecture-2016-edition/

Better pictures of the Ara prototype phone.
I just sat down with Rafe Caramago and several members of his Project Ara team to learn more about the modular smartphone — because there's a lot going on with this thing. The project, which many...

Have you ever supported some computer installation/configuration on the phone?. Probably you did and you know how frustrating it may be. Depending on the experience of the user at the other end of the line you may be getting partial or irrelevant information, making really difficult your task.

This week, another() project building on the 6502 netlist extracted by the visual6502(+) team. Peter Monta was able to fit a model of the netlist in an FPGA - in fact on an OHO board which can fit in a 40-pin socket - which can be seen on the linked page running Space Invaders in an Atari 2600! (But we chose a photo of a VIC20 instead...)
...
FGPAs typically don't offer bidirectional signals or tristate drivers in the interior, so Peter resorted to a charge-accounting model: "Most of the chip is converted to logic gates and storage elements, and the remainder is simulated with a 6-bit model of node voltages and edge currents (using approximately 48 levels during simulation.) So the FPGA is clocked at 50MHz or thereabouts, and manages to simulate a 6502 or 6507 at 1MHz or just above."

Ingo Korb later joined in, and succesfully ran the FPGA 6502 in an Apple IIe clone, a VIC20 and a C64.

"For this to work at all, the model running on the FPGA has to mimic the delays, especially of the clock signals, as well as the CPU logical behaviour. The FPGA module has to be electrically compatible with the motherboard, including delays, voltage levels and possibly in some cases edge rates."

() Earlier this week we enjoyed the announcement at MOnSter6502.org of a foot-square PCB recreating a 6502 with thousands of MOSFETs and a suitable number of LEDs to show internal signal activity. In this case +Eric Schlaepfer also started from visual6502's netlist.

(+) visual6502.org - the in-browser switch-level simulator of a reverse-engineered 6502, running these days in the region of 20Hz to 200Hz.
Introduction. In September 2010 the visual6502 project released the JavaScript simulator, which ran a chip animation at about one clock cycle per second - a million times slower than the original 6502 - in a web browser. In fact the transistor level model had already run faster than that, ...
