Car maintenance and repair cost grapher. This page helps you display and understand how much it has cost you to maintain and repair your car.

Car maintenance and repair cost grapher

You need to supply the data, which is just a list of amounts you paid for maintenance and repair and the odometer mileage at which the work was done. The analyzer spreads these costs out a bit and displays a record of how much the car has cost to maintain and repair over its life so far. This will help you compare cars to one another and will help you understand the way that repair costs come in as a car gets older. That may help you make a better decision about what to do with an older car. The analyzer is available here.

We once had a nice, red Pontiac Grand Am. The first column shows odometer readings, the second column shows dollar amounts for maintenance (like oil changes) and repairs (like the head gasket replacement at 98,625 miles). The red line shows the average cost per mile, 6.46 cents per mile. Learn Interesting Facts Every Day.

A joint group of researchers from the Netherlands and the US have smashed the world speed record for a fiber network, pushing 255 terabits per second down a single strand of glass fiber.

255Tbps: World’s fastest network could carry all of the internet’s traffic on a single fiber

This is equivalent to around 32 terabytes per second — enough to transfer a 1GB movie in 31.25 microseconds (0.03 milliseconds), or alternatively, the entire contents of your 1TB hard drive in about 31 milliseconds. To put 255Tbps into perspective, the fastest single-fiber links in commercial operation top out at 100Gbps, or 2,550 times slower. 255Tbps is mindbogglingly quick; it’s greater, by far, than the total capacity of every cable — hundreds of glass fibers — currently spanning the Atlantic Ocean. In fact, 255 terabits per second is similar to — or maybe even more than — the total sum of all traffic flowing across the internet at peak time. How did the researchers at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and University of Central Florida (CREOL) do it?

Multi-core fiber, of course! 12 Year Old Musician is an Old Soul. How an Amateur Built the World's Biggest Dome. What It Felt Like to Test the First Submarine Nuclear Reactor. In the middle of last century, out in southern Idaho, amid the sagebrush and the steppes, the Navy kept a secret site.

What It Felt Like to Test the First Submarine Nuclear Reactor

In that place—dry and arid, far from the sea and very much unlike it—scientists and engineers simulated a nuclear-powered submarine. It was more than a mere war game. The scientists and engineers had created one of the first nuclear reactors ever. Impressive New Safety Barriers. Impressive New Safety Barriers.

For example, look at California. For a drastic change, switch to Washington, D.C., where people who work in the legal and business sectors are much more common.

Move the median salary up a bit, and you get a sense of overall salaries (and a correlating cost of living, kind of) as you check out different states.
