Who is Energy News? I went to the site, but there's little to no info about who they are or where they operate from. 

 

I don't disbelieve the postings, I'm just curious.

 

And if it's true, it's astounding that it's not being covered by the rest of the news. Maybe put a giant orange comb-over on top of the plant and they'll pay attention.

Those links i found to ENE (Energy News) are provided by the Emergency Nuclear Tracking Center

Here's a link to the ENTC......https://www.netc.com/

 

"Our mission is provide free radiation monitoring information from private and government sites to the public.  We have about 300 radiation monitoring sites across the United States and Japan and will add more sites in other parts of the Earth, when they become available."

"First Men On The Moon" (1919) is considered lost, one of the most sought after British films by historians.  Only a few stills survive.

Midisoft's Session will never get old, works with Windows 3.1 to XP (I assume it will with 7)  It uses the mid sound format only.

 

Works with the joystick MIDI interface or alone.  Great way to test the soundcard, the saxophone is the hardest .mid file sound to reproduce.  Can hear it best using Windows 98SE with the old SoundBlaster AWE32 .

Sometimes the trucks are only marked with a U.S. and nothing else.  This has been known for a long time.

Beware The Unmarked 18-Wheeler

 

If you do a lot of highway driving, you can’t help but see a lot of 18-wheelers. You see the big rigs with brand names splashed all over them. Walmart, Swift, Old Dominion, UPS, and hundreds more freight companies travel millions of miles per day along America’s highways. Have you ever noticed an 18-wheeler rolling along with no markings? If you do, give it some space, you might be surprised what that semi is carrying.

Yeah, Microsofts Embrace their newest operating system, Extend service / updates for a while and Extinguish all support later on. :angry:

 

2en6vwy.jpg

 

Except that XP was a MS product.  "Embrace-Extend-Extinguish" would apply to anything MS has joined in on late to the game and snuffed out in various stages.  The latest in their longtime strategy is to "Embrace" Linux as a viable operating system, after years (decades) of demonizing it.   Their CEO has already "Embraced" it, now they have a few "Extend" operations in play:  a variation of the Linux command shell on Windows (for Linux admins who may want to issue Linux-parlance commands to Windows machines).  MS SQL on Linux (though Linux has long had MySQL and other SQL variants).  Also there is a build of Linux that can run on top of Windows, although anyone even remotely familiar with Linux and its security model wouldn't need it or want it.  All three are considered to be outliers in the Linux community and are neither here nor there.  Linux is not for sale.  So there will be no "Extinguish" stage, just some awkward contributions by MS that will soon be forgotten by most.

 

Anywho...a thought for your thought and an image for your image:

1:50 into the Vimeo video shows water still flowing (more like seeping out) on the rim of the crater.  It will quickly turn to vapor because of the low atmospheric pressure.

 

Seen enough images from the rovers and orbiting spacecraft to be bored of the place - might as well live in Arizona. -_-

A FICTIVE FLIGHT ABOVE A REAL MARS....

 

 

What it like to fly above Mars: Finnish filmmaker painstakingly puts together thousands of NASA images to create stunning video

  • Mars was once covered with oceans, ice sheets and erupting volcanoes that towered over the planet
  • The surface of the planet is filled with fascinating bumps and scratches revealing its geological history
  • The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting and capturing pictures of the surface since 2006
  • Finnish filmmaker Jan Fröjdman transformed images imagery into a dynamic, three-dimensional, overhead view of the Red Planet 

 

 

THIS VIDEO IS FROM VIMEO...TO GO FULL SCREEN CLICK ON THE "V" ON THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER OF THE SCREEN.
