Hardwood and Softwood Lumber Identification for Woodworking. The Wood Database. Clockwise from top left: black and white ebony, Brazilian rosewood, Carpathian elm burl, zebrawood, redheart, tigre caspi, kingwood, tulipwood, and canarywood (center) In a flurry of Googling “periodic table of ______” the other day, I happened upon a really neat website: The Wood Database.

The Wood Database

The database was created by Eric Meier, who originally began compiling specs on different types of wood for his own personal use, to use as a guide in selecting the appropriate wood for projects. He eventually moved his database online, to share with the public. Wireless - WiFi on Raspberry Pi & Raspbmc - Raspberry Pi Beta - Stack Exchange. The script mentioned in the darrenjw's answer downloads a pre-compiled module based on your kernel version.

It's quite likely that one of these modules will work for you though you might have to search through the script to find the right module. The lastest one worked for me, I'd start by downloading and trying that. wget tar xfv 8192cu-20120701.tar.gz sudo mv 8192cu.ko /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/ sudo insmod /lib/modules/3.1.9+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8192cu.ko If you then enter iwconfig and are presented with a list containing wlan0 then the module was successfully loaded. If none of the pre-compiled modules work then you may have to build your own, however, this isn't as simple as it should be. Once you have the module loaded you will need to configure your network.

AirWatch literally floats above your wrist.

Pawel says: Years ago a watch with full color matrix display was considered futuristic, now it is state-of-the-art. However, transparent displays are uncommon and still appear futuristic to us. An idea of a transparent watch is fascinating to me. Autographer wearable camera will save your life… or track your staff. Microsoft created a stir with its SenseCam wearable camera a decade ago, and now OMG (Oxford Metrics Group) has announced Autographer, an updated version aimed mainly at the consumer market.

Both were designed by electronics engineer Lyndsay Williams, formerly of Microsoft Research and now managing director of her own Girton Labs. The SenseCam was designed to help people with Alzheimer's disease or other memory problems to capture their life experiences and share them with their doctors and carers. This patented "memory enhancement camera" captures the wearer's day in about 2,000 images, which can be replayed in about five minutes. The result is somewhere between still pictures and a movie, and makes events more accessible than viewing hundreds of hours of CCTV recordings.

Wi-Fi positioning performs best where GPS is weakest, in urban areas and indoors. Click here for details on Wi-Fi data collection methodology and coverage.

GPS provides highly accurate location results in "open sky" environments, like rural areas and on highways. But in urban areas and indoors, tall buildings and ceilings block GPS' view of satellites, resulting in serious performance deficiencies in time to first fix, accuracy and availability. GPS or A-GPS alone cannot provide fast and accurate location results in all environments. Cell tower triangulation provides generalized location results with only 200 - 1000 meter accuracy. - placelab Resources and Information. This website is for sale!

The Californian space-technology company SpaceX, based in Hawthorne, celebrates its tenth birthday this year. The company's re-usable, unmanned Dragon spacecraft is due to make its second demonstration flight at the end of April, when it will visit the International Space Station. A version of Dragon that could carry seven astronauts is under development. Elon Musk, SpaceX's chief executive and chief technology officer, talked to Nature about his plans for the company and his personal ambitions for space flight.

Kyushu University RIAM Wind Engineering Section Homepage - Wind Lens. 4. Development of wind energy and new wind turbine system Wind power concentration system "Wind Lens" Wind power is proportional to the wind speed cubed. If we can increase the wind speed with some mechanism by utilizing the fluid dynamic nature around a structure, namely if we can capture and concentrate the wind energy locally, the output power of a wind turbine can be increased substantially. At wind energy section of Kyushu University, a new efficient wind power turbine system has been developed. LINKS -              HYBRID  PILOT  SERVICES  LTD.
