REALITY, Reality, reality. As Alice said to Humpty Dumpty after he replied “Glory!”

REALITY, Reality, reality

, “Why, whatever do you mean by that?” Reality — wouldn’t even go there trying to define it. All I know is, all charged up and ready to go, and left to your own devices, have entirely new meanings now. Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) Welcome to the Website of the SwissFEL, Switzerland's X-ray free-electron laser currently being built at the Paul Scherrer Institute.

Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI)

The SwissFEL is based on a novel technology holding exceptional promises for diverse areas of scientific research. Serving our society's modern trends "smaller, faster, more complex", SwissFEL will provide unprecedented insights into structures as small as an atom and into phenomena as fast as the vibrations of molecular bonds. It will also reveal the secrets behind the inner complexity of technologically relevant materials.

Amazon Simple Workflow - Cloud-Based Workflow Management. Simple WorkflowToday we are introducing the Amazon Simple Workflow service, SWF for short.

Amazon Simple Workflow - Cloud-Based Workflow Management

This new service gives you the ability to build and run distributed, fault-tolerant applications that span multiple systems (cloud-based, on-premise, or both). Amazon Simple Workflow coordinates the flow of synchronous or asynchronous tasks (logical application steps) so that you can focus on your business and your application instead of having to worry about the infrastructure. Why? We want to make it easier for you to build distributed, fault-tolerant, cloud-based applications! In our own work with systems of this type, we have learned quite a bit. You can use Simple Workflow to handle many types of multi-stage operations including traditional business processes (handling an order or adding a new employee), setting up a complex multi-tiered application, or even handling the decision-making process for a multi-player online game.

Developer Sells iPhone App On eBay, Starting Price: $1. Mobile app developer Neal Schmidt, maker of the scavenger hunt game Buckshot, is selling his iPhone app on eBay where it had a starting price of just $1.00.

Developer Sells iPhone App On eBay, Starting Price: $1

The app was posted to eBay on December 29th, and, according to the listing is for “complete ownership” of the game, including both the free and paid versions. As of today, the app has received 17 bids and is currently up to $202.50. According to the seller “nSchmidt7,” the multi-player photo scavenger hunt game now has attracted 20,000 registered players since its May 2011 launch. Twitter. Phase Changes. In the process of heating water from from 0 to 100 C, 100 calories of energy must be added.

Part of that energy increases the kinetic energy of the molecules, and some adds to the potential energy. Flip chip. Process steps[edit] Comparison of mounting technologies[edit]

Microelectromechanical systems. Nanotechnology. Nanotechnology ("nanotech") is the manipulation of matter on an atomic, molecular, and supramolecular scale.


The earliest, widespread description of nanotechnology[1][2] referred to the particular technological goal of precisely manipulating atoms and molecules for fabrication of macroscale products, also now referred to as molecular nanotechnology. A more generalized description of nanotechnology was subsequently established by the National Nanotechnology Initiative, which defines nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition reflects the fact that quantum mechanical effects are important at this quantum-realm scale, and so the definition shifted from a particular technological goal to a research category inclusive of all types of research and technologies that deal with the special properties of matter that occur below the given size threshold.

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — Steve Jobs, Apple Inc.’s co-founder and chairman, died Wednesday at the age of 56, following a long and complicated battle with cancer. Damn You Auto Correct! - Funny iPhone Fails and Autocorrect Horror Stories. Nano Report (NanoReport) ReadyBoost. Overview[edit] Using ReadyBoost-capable flash memory (NAND memory devices) for caching allows Windows Vista and later to service random disk reads with better performance than without the cache.


This caching applies to all disk content, not just the page file or system DLLs. Flash devices typically are slower than a mechanical hard disk for sequential I/O, so, to maximize performance, ReadyBoost includes logic that recognizes large, sequential read requests and has the hard disk service these requests.[1] When a compatible device is plugged in, the Windows AutoPlay dialog offers an additional option to use the flash drive to speed up the system; an additional "ReadyBoost" tab is added to the drive's properties dialog where the amount of space to be used can be configured.[2] The minimum cache size is 250 MB.

In Vista or with FAT32 formatting of the drive, the maximum is 4 GB. Requirements[edit] Israel: The start up nation taking on Silicon Valley. OLAP cube. An example of an OLAP cube An OLAP cube is an array of data understood in terms of its 0 or more dimensions.
