Electric Power & Transmission & Distribution - Powersave 1200 - carnky108,What you are referring to is what is called a Nola Power Factor Controller, invented by a NASA engineer named Frank Nola in 1969. Different animal, albeit also marketed in some pretty slimy ways lately. PFC controllers came out in the 70s and have resurfaced because the internet has opened up a who new access point for scammers, but it does have a modicum of truth behind it. It does save a small amout of energy on unloaded 1 phase motors, but of course if it is running unloaded, why is it even running at all? However, that device can ONLY be attached to one motor circuit, NOT an entire house at the distribution panel line lugs, as this Power-Save device claims. More interesting reading on this subject. Interesting excerpt from there:"Reply from: Beanland November 5 2008, 10:50 am ESTI went to the Taiwan patent website and looked at the patent. So it appears they don't even bother with the worthless TVSS on this one!

Coding - the new Latin 28 November 2011Last updated at 08:45 <div class="warning"><img class="holding" src=" alt="students on computers" /><p><strong>Please turn on JavaScript.</strong> Media requires JavaScript to play.</p></div> The campaign to boost the teaching of computer skills - particularly coding - in schools is gathering force. Today the likes of Google, Microsoft and other leading technology names will lend their support to the case made to the government earlier this year in a report called Next Gen. The statistics on the numbers going to university to study computing make sobering reading. By 2007 that had fallen to just 10,600, and although it's recovered a little to 13,600 last year, that's at a time in major growth in overall applications, so the percentage of students looking to study the subject has fallen from 5% to 3%. And it looks like they've found what could be a great slogan for their campaign.

30 game scripts you can write in PHP, Part 1: Creating 10 fundamental scripts Getting started As both a game master/storyteller and a developer, I frequently find myself writing little utilities and scripts to help me when running, planning, and playing games. Sometimes I need a quick idea. Other times, I just need a whole pile of names for Non-Player Characters (NPCs). Occasionally, I need to geek out on numbers, work out some odds, or integrate some word puzzles into a game. Many of these tasks become more manageable with a little bit of script work ahead of time. This article will explore 10 fundamental scripts that can be used in various types of games. We will blaze through these scripts pretty quickly. Back to top A basic die roller Many games and game systems need dice. In many cases, that would be more or less fine. Listing 1. function roll () { return mt_rand(1,6); } echo roll(); Then we can pass the type of die we want to roll as a parameter to the function. Listing 2. Random name generator Listing 3. Listing 4. Listing 5. Scenario generator Listing 6. Summary

dartdocgen: The API Documentation Generator Use dartdocgen to generate, and serve, the documentation for your Dart package. Basic usage Dartdocgen generates documentation from Dart code in the lib directory and creates the output in JSON format. When using the --serve option, dartdocgen serves your files so you can see them locally in a browser. To deploy your documentation to the web, host the viewer on your server, compiled to JavaScript, along with your generated files. Generate documentation Here is a simple example of using dartdocgen to generate docs on the command line. Run this command from the top-level directory of your Dart package, after you have run pub get to get the dependencies: dartdocgen . This command generates documentation, in the JSON file format, and places it in a top-level directory named docs. View docs locally Here is a simple example of using dartdocgen to generate, and then serve, the generated docs to the viewer. dartdocgen --serve . Deploy docs To deploy your documentation to the web, do the following:

Easy Facebook Scripting in Python « Heterogenous Mixture UPDATED: fbconsole Pypi Package and Github Repository Sometimes you just want to write a little script using Facebook’s api that updates your status, or downloads all your photos, or deletes all those empty albums you accidentally created. In order to streamline my writing of one-off facebook scripts, I created a micro api client that implements the client-side authentication flow and has a few utility functions for accessing the graph api and fql. To use this mini api client, all you have to do is put 4 lines of code at the top of your python script: Now you can specify the permissions you’ll need for your script (from the list of available api permissions) and authenticate yourself: By default, the api client makes requests as the “fbconsole” app. Once authenticated, you can make whatever calls to the graph api or fql that you want. Post a status update Fetch likes on a status update Delete a status update Upload a photo (why does python make this so hard?) Query FQL tables Like this:

Codecademy Labs - Getting Started Apparmor privoxy profile This blog is an extension of a discussion we had at our LUG regarding security. We are reviewing both apparmor and selinux and started with apparmor. One advantage of apparmor is that it is relatively easy to learn, but a potential downside is that as an end user you will need to learn to generate and maintain profiles. When learning to write profiles it is best to start with a smaller, simple application (rather then a large complex application such as firefox). In this blog I will review how to generate a profile using privoxy as an example. If needed, start by installing privoxy and apparmor-utils. 1. aa-genprof privoxy Writing updated profile for /usr/sbin/privoxy. 2. sudo service privoxy start sudo service privoxy stop sudo service privoxy restart 3. [(S)can system log for AppArmor events] / (F)inish Reading log entries from /var/log/syslog. 4. Note: You will have to allow rw access to file in /etc/privoxy/* if you wish to configure privoxy via the web interface. 5. 6. sudo aa-status

Le colonel Moutarde, sur la table (de hachage), avec un livre de maths Quand des chercheurs en informatique font de la théorie, certains écoutent, comme les développeurs de Perl. D'autres dorment au fond de la classe : cette fois, le bonnet d'âne est pour PHP, Python, V8 (JavaScript par Google, qui sert par exemple dans node.js), Ruby (sauf CRuby), de nombreux serveurs d'applications en Java, mais aussi ASP.NET. Ils ont dû se réveiller brutalement mercredi, lors d'une présentation d'Alexander Klink et Julian Wälde au Chaos Communication Congress montrant comment saturer très simplement un serveur grâce à une attaque basée sur la complexité algorithmique.

Documentation generator Document generation can be divided in several type of documents: Batch documents (all automated documents)Interactive documents (documents that can not be produced automatically)Text block correspondence (documents created based on pre-defined text blocks)Forms (forms for websites) You can place every type of document you come across in one of these categories. It is time to kill the file system I am sure you have watched the video preview of Windows 8. If you haven't, shame on you, it will turn out to be a crucial moment in the history of computing... Ok, ok, I'll add it below here. Watch it and then come back. Now, tell me what you felt and what you remember if you close your eyes. Exactly, it is all smooth and nice and wow until you get around minute 3:00. I think that reaction is telling. Maybe. The problem is that we have moved on. One thing in particular kills me in that video. I do not think so. The file system is dead. Think about it. I know you know what a file system is. Actually, it is not necessary at all. Of course you'll have a file system underneath. Eventually, they will not need the old Windows UI either.
