The Vaults of Erowid : The Essential Psychedelic Guide INTENSITY: 9 to 10 SAFETY FACTORS: 5-MeO-DMT is an MAO inhibitor. See list of items not to take with MAO inhibitors on page 19. [Erowid Note: This is probably wrong. Although 5-MeO-DMT is metabolized by MAO and occupies some amount of the enzyme, it is not considered an MAO-inhibitor in the normal sense.] Since DMT takes effect almost immediately, users normally lie down or sit in a reclining position prior to taking a hit. MATERIAL: N,N-Dimethyltryptamine and 5-Methoxy-Dimethyltryptamine are naturally occurring psychedelics found in a variety of plants around the world, several of which are native to the Amazon region. N,N-DMT and 5-MeO-DMT are also manufactured synthetically, as separate compounds, and sold on the underground market And although it's quite rare in the psychedelic underground, synthetic DMT is used much more often than DMT from natural sources. HISTORY: There are several plant sources of DMT, many of which have uniquely different histories of use. 1.
Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric Ocelot Is Out Now With New Default Programs [Linux] It’s here! With a multitude of user interface improvements and a few new default programs, Ubuntu 11.10 keeps the premiere Linux distro moving forward. Whether you’re a long time Ubuntu user or a Windows/Mac user interested in trying something new, Ubuntu 11.10 is worth downloading now. Ubuntu comes twice a year. New Software So what’s new? Ubuntu ousted the much-maligned Evolution email and calendar application in favor of Thunderbird. Deja Dup, the perfect Linux backup software, is now part of Ubuntu by default. You’ll find DejaDup in the new settings menu; it’s very easy to setup. Gwibber, Ubuntu’s microblogging tool for Twitter and Facebook, sucks less then before. A couple of great programs disappeared from the default setup – Synaptic, the advanced package manager, is no longer a default program. Interface Improvements Unity keeps evolving, much to the annoyance of some. The menu button moved from the top bar to the dock. Another big improvement is the settings window: Unity 2D
Tiny Core Linux, Micro Core Linux, 10MB Linux GUI Desktop, Live, Frugal, Extendable Welcome to The Core Project - Tiny Core Linux The Core Project is a highly modular based system with community build extensions. It starts with a recent Linux kernel, vmlinuz 3.0, and a 5MB core.gz. MicroCore 8MB is simply the kernel + core.gz - this is the foundation for user created desktops, servers, or appliances. TinyCore is simply the kernel + core.gz + Xvesa.tcz|Xorg.tcz + Xprogs +fltk-1.10.tcz + (user's choice of Window Manager) + wbar.tcz TinyCore becomes simply an example of what the Core Project can produce, an 12MB FLTK/FLWM desktop. CorePlus ofers a simple way to get started using the Core philosophy with its included community packaged extensions enabling easy embedded frugal or pendrive installation of the user's choice of supported desktop, while maintaining the Core principal of mounted extensions with full package management. It is not a complete desktop nor is all hardware completely supported. The latest version: 5.3 News About Our Project Learn.
100+ awesome free and open source applications - Software - Seopher.com Posted on Tuesday 27th of September 2011 at 13:05 in SoftwareIt has always amazed me quite how many incredible, varied and useful applications are available for free on the Internet. Be it free, open source, web-based or merely passive trials - the number of top quality items on offer is huge. The purpose of this list is to help people realise that the free and open source software communities are expansive and generous. In these tense economic times, raising awareness of such projects is something I'm more than happy to do. If you feel that I've missed something good off the list, please leave a comment at the bottom - I read absolutely every one. Image, Image Editing and Graphics GIMP – The GNU Image Manipulation Program is a Photoshop replacement that doesn’t have "quite" as much functionality but it’s excellent for free.

Freescale's Insanely Tiny ARM Chip Will Put the Internet of Things Inside Your Body | Wired Design Freescale’s Kinetis KL02 MCU is very small. Photo courtesy: Freescale. Chipmaker Freescale Semiconductor has created the world’s smallest ARM-powered chip, designed to push the world of connected devices into surprising places. Announced today, the Kinetis KL02 measures just 1.9 by 2 millimeters. The KL02 has 32k of flash memory, 4k of RAM, a 32 bit processor, and peripherals like a 12-bit analog to digital converter and a low-power UART built into the chip. How tiny? The KL02 is part of Freescale’s push to make chips tailored to the Internet of Things. There are some clues we can glean about how this chip might end up inside our digestive tracts. Though Moore’s law has become largely uninteresting at the scale of desktop and laptop computers (when all you’re doing is watching videos, writing, and surfing the web, you don’t need that much power), there is still plenty of room at the bottom. The new chip will be on display at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, from Feb. 26 to 28.
Mythology - A general introduction to Ayahuasca The Tukano Story - Description 1 - Ralph Metzner, Ph.D. of the Green Earth Foundation Snakes are very commonin ayahuasca mythology More mythological snakes The Tukano people of the Vaupés region of Colombia say that the first people came from the sky in a serpent canoe, and Father Sun had promised them a magical drink that would connect them with the radiant powers of the heavens. This luminous boy-child was the vine, and each of the men cut off a piece of this living being that became his piece of the vine lineage. The Tukano Story - Description 2 - Dr. Once upon a time, a long, long time ago there lived among the Tukanoans a woman, the first woman of 'creation' who drowned men in visions. The first woman became pregnant by the sun-god who had impregnated her through the eye. The myth essentially tells the story of the alchemical marriage, in which wo/man seeks union with the god-source, divine power of creation. More myths Taken from 'Encounters with the Amazon's Sacred Vine' by L.
