Cryogenic Heat Engine invented at University of Texas is another intriguing attempt at using air to not only power the engines of personal vehicles , but also contribute to eliminating polutants from air. The concept is simple – using compressed, cooled nitrogen as fuel, and using solar energy to compress it and cool it!

ZDNet reports some major uncovering of Big Brother technology. Apparently, “they” do know where it comes from. Once you print a document, it is traced with invisible to eye yellow dots, left as encoded markers identifying date, time and serial number of printers. Thus far, some printers have been tested positive for this techology. Find out if yours is one of them!
Gosh, I just wish the U.S. Secret Service also put a stop to the long-running scheme by printer manufacturers of overcharging consumers for ink cartridges…hmmmm.
When you think “fantasy” combined with “painting” – presto! – you think Boris Valejo. For the rest of the geeks out there, it seems that is another, Todd Lockwood.
Todd Lockwood was kind enough to share his cool, offer to sign my bra *blush*, and attend British Columbia’s 30th V-Con. He is also kind enough to dispense advice to budding artists.
A story published in National Geographic reports that 1/5th of all human genes have been patented by a handful of private corporations and institutions. Sad fact: most of patent “gold rush” of human genes refers to many samples obtained illegally from variety of research campaigns. Another sad fact is: you have been 1/5th patented. Congratulations and good luck
Jevon and myself managed to get into the archives while at sfu (though no wrong doing on my part) doing his other show tonight.
We have uploaded them to my server at home, and sometime tommorow I hope to have working copies up on torrents. When that is done I’ll update this post, it should still notify any rss feed reader that people are using if they are not actually coming to the site.
Note, been fixing up the templates, let me know if there are any pages that are found that do not look right.
So far noticed

OK. Everybody loves this thing! Everybody looooves it. I mean, the reviewers are right now wrapped up in their own little worlds of film fests, and experimental cinema, and Hollywood blockbusters that are vying for attention of public (so they get to kiss their little bald Oscars at the end of the year). And yet….they keep on buttering the goodies, saying how wonderful, how lovely, how insightful, how…Serenity, the littly Firefly show that was proclaimed so bad, that Fox cancelled it! Fox!!!
Anyways, before I get all engrossed in my commentaries, I should get to my point – Orson Scott Card wrote a review.
