Society has come to a new low!

http://oceanup.com/2009/10/28/girl-threatens-to-kill-a-cat-unless-miley-cyrus-reopens-her-twitter-account

When Miley Cyrus broke up with Twitter, hundreds of cities flooded from the gallons of tears coming out of the eyes of tweens everywhere. The world hasn't been the same. Tragic. And now the life of an innocent cat named Fuzzy may also end in tragedy. That's if you believe this website/Twitter account claiming that if Miley doesn't make a triumphant return to Twitter, Fuzzy will be chopped, sauteed and devoured. Yes, some loontardian is threatening to kill their cat over Miley Cyrus. I'll let them explain:


The other day I asked myself: 'What can I do to bring Miley back to Twitter?' Fan video? Petitions? Letters? That never works. Heck, Miley even made her own video about never wanting to use Twitter again. Then I looked at my cat, Fuzzy and I realized, maybe Fuzzy can help. Fuzzy can make the ultimate sacrifice for this cause. It was very difficult for me, you see, as I sincerely love Fuzzy. But my mind is made up. I could always get another cat, but nothing can replace Miley's tweets for me!

The idea is very simple. I've set a deadline of November 16, 2009, when Fuzzy will part with his life and become a meal. I do not consider myself a cruel person and I do love my cat. Fuzzy will receive quick and swift death and I'll try to minimize his suffering.

Let me clarify: This is NOT a prank or a hoax. I am not joking, even if some will choose to interpret it that way. Cooking a cat is not illegal in my country, in fact it's part of our culture. I'm not asking for money or any other benefit. Fuzzy is my cat and I will not entertain any offers of selling or giving him away. If Miley doesn't tweet again, this WILL happen, and I'm as serious as a heart attack.

This is the MOST SICKEINING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN AND I HOPE THE PERSON DOING THIS GETS LOCKED UP FOR LIFE!


THIS MAKES ME SICK!

Who in the freking hell would do this to an animal over some celeb they should not give one rats ass about is beyond anything. This is the most maddening thing to do to an animal. The animal services should take the cat away asap and lock this cretin up for life.

Trapped Rainbows:Applications for Quantum Computing?

Light can be slowed down so that a beam of sunlight can travel at a leisurely stroll, be brought to a standstill, or even stored

for later use in the form of a rainbow.

Today, details of an exotic kind of material that can slow light from its top speed of around one million million metres per hour

so that it can be trapped as a crescent of colour is published by a team that suggests if could mark a revolution in computing.


This remarkable feat could allow "broadband storage" for "broadband computing" capable of much greater power than conventional

silicon chips because it can process information in the form of many light beams simultaneously, just as optical fibres can carry

lots of conversations simultaneously. And it could also mark an advance in quantum computing, named after the strange quantum

properties of matter at the atomic level, that could enhance the power of computers millions of times beyond anything available

today.

The extraordinary feat of optical sorcery is described today in the journal Nature by Prof Ortwin Hess and Kosmas Tsakmakidis at

the University of Surrey, working with Professor Alan Boardman from Salford University.

Once theory is turned into reality, the technique will allow the use of light rather than electrons to store memory in devices

such as computers. The team predicts an increase in operating capacity of 1,000% over the use of conventional electronics by

exploiting light's broad spectrum to lay down lots of different information simultaneously in the first "optical capacitor."

Slow light could also, paradoxically, be used to increase the speed of optical networks, such as the Internet. At major

interconnection points, where billions of parcels of information from myriad phone calls arrive simultaneously, these materials

could be used to slow, divert and allow through information, working in the same way as traffic congestion calming schemes do on

motorways, when a reduction in the speed limit can lead to a swifter overall flow of traffic.

Previous attempts to slow and capture light have until now required extremely low temperatures, have been extremely costly, and

have only worked with one specific frequency of light at a time. The new technique proposed by Prof Hess and Kosmas Tsakmakidis

involves the use of exotic "metamaterials" with extraordinary optical properties.

These materials, which consist of carefully-designed shards of metal a billionth of a metre across (nanometres), have the strange

property of negative refraction, which means that light bends in the opposite direction to the way it shifts when passing from one

ordinary material into another (think of how a straight stick in water looks bent.) This means that, in theory at least, a

metamaterial could be designed so that light would curve around it, making the object invisible, an idea already under serious

study for cloaking devices. When combined with the "Goos Hänchen effect," where light can even go backwards, Prof Hess's team has

shown it is possible to use metamaterials to halt a light beam in its tracks.

As different component 'colours' of white light have different frequencies (colours) each individual frequency be stopped at a

different stage of a wedge of such material, he said, likening the way the light slows down to walking on shingle. At the point

that every step of the light beam forward leads to an equivalent slip backwards in the metamaterial, an effect that depends on the

colour of the light.

The result is a 'trapped rainbow'. "The key to understanding the trapping of the rainbow," he says, "is that every frequency of a

white light wave packet has in a tapered shape of metamaterial its own particular width where it eventually stops – the result is

the spatial spread of stopped/trapped light – the trapped rainbow." Prof Hess said that an onlooker could in an appropriate

arrangement of metamaterial layers (as shown here) see the rainbow of trapped light.

This ability to store light will conceivably provide a powerful new tool to control optical information, even harness the quantum

properties of atoms, and so exploit the possibilities of quantum computers that, in theory, will be able solve problems millions

of times faster than current machines.

The extraordinary properties of quantum computers were first explored by theorists such as the late Richard Feynman at Caltech and

David Deutsch of Oxford University. While a conventional PC shuffles information in the form of binary numbers, those containing

only the digits 1 and 0, which it remembers as the "on" and "off" positions of tiny switches, or "bits."

By contrast, the switches in a quantum computer can be both "on" and "off" at the same time. A "qubit" could do two calculations

at once, two qubits would do four and so on. Thus, it was theoretically possible to use quantum computers to explore vast numbers

of potential solutions to a problem simultaneously. The new work, which suggests a way to create optical qubits, adds to a range

of recent advances that make scientists confident that quantum computers will be feasible within a few years.

Windows System Resource Manager

does this have any benifit using it locally to control apps or is this good only for "server" apps. I would love to use this to contain photoshop and its nasty leakage as well as other apps like IE. Can this work locally?




I will post some wiki info right here to get everyone the gist of it:

"Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) is a component of Microsoft's Windows Server 2008 operating systems that provides resource management and enables the allocation of resources, including processor and memory resources, among multiple applications based on business priorities. It is also available as a downloadable add-on for Windows Server 2003 Enterprise and Datacenter editions.



WSRM enables users to manage CPU and memory utilization on a per process basis. An administrator sets targets for the amount of hardware resources that running applications or users are allowed to consume. It can allocate resources among multiple applications on a server according to defined policies.



This can be helpful in a corporate environment when, for example, your well-behaved application software has to co-exist with an application that has a memory leak. Without protection such as afforded by WSRM, your application will run more slowly and/or crash, because the misbehaving application will eventually cause problems that affect every application that shares its memory space. Thanks to the WSRM, a software application can be limited to an isolated subset of hardware resources. As a result of this, the bad effects caused by the memory leak will be limited to that subset. Hardware partitioning can also solve the problem, but it is a far more complex solution."
 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_System_Resource_Manager





Here's my experince with it!
 
I tried this and applied it to IE8 and now I got instant bloat control! If one tab uses over 500MB of commit charge (paging file only usage amount) then it will shut down that tab and then IE8 auto recovers it! That utility is awesome! it also helps reduce thrashing by doing this.




keep track of commit charge by enabling it in task manager. go to view columns enable the commit size one! if you notice this going up in a process kill it! This will help remedy the thrashing problems. I did this and my system is so sexy smooth now! LOLz.



this is a must install for those running server 2008 and do not have very much ram and/or multitask tons like I do. ;)



also doing this tells you that most websites are the source of the bloat rather then the browser or the OS! Please keep this in mind webmasters out there. You opened the code now close it and be polite. we don't want to have to resort to above methods to deal with you! MS provides the code on technet/msdn if you look hard enough! Most webmasters forget that when they code a site they are coding a mini application so the same rules apply. make the responsibly! you still have to close the memory like a normal .exe application! do this and people (and compies) will be much happier!



Oh BTW on youtube I watch 5 videos and the process on WSRM kicks in and kills it! this is just in one tab alone! The ram usage is 320MB and the commit charge is a staggering 500MB+!!!!! ADOBE NEEDS TO SHAPE UP AND GET FLASH TO NOT BE SO BLOATED!!!!


this is my usage when running IE8 with 25 tabs inclusing Bing maps and Google street view after watching 8 youtube vids:
