'Automating' comes from the roots 'auto-' meaning 'self-', and 'mating', meaning 'screwing'.

I got to be pretty decent at spotting this curve while at UMB, and then avoiding it. But there is no doubt about its existence.

This is my weakness. I'll gladly write a script or macro to accomplish a repetitive task even though doing the task by hand would take half the time. Coincidently, this is why I use Vim, because it reduces the distance between manual and macro editing. Of course, it took me weeks to set up and learn to use Vim. That's time I'll likely never recoup.

The multi-axial solution is to delegate your yak-shave. Alternately optimize using the "has somebody automated/done this in a good enough fashion" algorithm.

OVH, rupture de stock sur les serveurs dédiés

1 Share

Vu sur PC INpact, OVH a annoncé ce 17 septembre, l'arrêt temporaire de ses offres sur les serveurs dédiés. La question est donc : « _MAIS POURKKOOUUUUAAAAAAA ????_ »

La société ne semble plus en mesure de répondre à la demande. Avec des offres toujours plus séduisantes, la demande de nouveaux serveurs est fortes. À cela s'ajoute un renouvellement très important où les anciens clients n'hésitent pas à basculer sur les nouvelles offres plus avantageuses.

Il serait alors trop coûteux de gérer tout cela et OVH arrête donc la vente de serveurs dédiés le temps de réfléchir à un meilleur modèle économique.

L'hébergement étant tout de même le cœur de métier d'OVH je suis un peu étonné par la nouvelle d'autant plus que l'année dernière ils avaient publiés une vidéo pour la promotion du plus grand data center du monde.

Watch a Laser Light Glass Bottles on Fire

1 Share
The idea behind this video is pretty simple, it's a laser igniting black flash paper to spark fire inside a bottle. But the execution of it is just mesmerizing. The Wicked Laser 100mW Spyder III Krypton burns through the paper in a pyro domino effect and the flame just explodes inside the bottle. You get to see it broken down in slow motion too. Lasers. Fire. Slow motion. Always a good combination. [World Scott via Laughing Squid] More »

Explosions, Destruction and Crazyness in Slow Motion Never Stops Being Fun

1 Share
Danish TV show 'Dumt & Farligt' (it means Stupid & Dangerous) just posted an insane compilation of their second season and it's filled with sillyness like splooging toothpaste, rocket launching glass jars, exploding campers and more fun like that. It's shot at 2500FPS so you can enjoy all the minutiae of destruction. [YouTube via BoingBoing More »

Official: Jeep reveals annual Moab Easter Jeep Safari concepts [UPDATE]

1 Share

Filed under: , , , , , ,

Jeep Wrangler Sand Trooper II Concept

Jeep has unveiled its annual spate of concepts before the Easter Jeep Safari. Those start with the Grand Cherokee Trailhawk Concept (below left), complete with the company's EcoDiesel V6 engine. Designers threw in a set of 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires wrapped around 17-inch Rubicon wheels, and a set of custom fender flares help keep all that rubber under wraps.

Meanwhile, the Wrangler Mopar Recon (below right) packs a 6.4-liter Hemi V8 good for 470 horsepower. All that grunt gets to the ground via a five-speed automatic transmission and a set of a Dana 60 axles frond and rear with 4.10 gears. The Recon also makes use of a 4.5-inch prototype long-arm kit and a set of prototype eight-lug bead lock wheels.



The Wrangler Stitch (below left) builds on the momentum of the Wrangler Pork Chop Concept. Engineers once again set out to strike as much weight as possible from the vehicle, and actually managed to trim the curb weight down to 3,000 pounds. That effort has given the machine the same power to weight ratio as the Grand Cherokee SRT. Plenty of carbon fiber, door deletes and a chrome moly roll cage all help trim those pounds, and a set of DanyTrac Pro Rock 44 axles with 4.88 gears and ARB lockers front and rear let this machine scramble over whatever is in its path.



The Wrangler Sand Trooper II (very top) gets its grunt from a 5.7-liter Hemi and puts all 400 pound-feet of torque to the ground via a set of eight-lug portal axles. That hardware allows the Sand Trooper II to run 40-inch tires.

Jeep took a different approach with the Wrangler Flattop (above middle), however. With an upscale appearance, the Flattop boasts a chopped windowless hard top that shortens the machine in height by a full two inches. Designers also cut out the B pillar for a massive side opening. Katzkin leather seating indoors helps offer up a bit more refinement, and the Warn Zeon winch and 37-inch Mickey Thompson tires give the rig some added capability off road.

Finally, the Wrangler Slim (above right) is likely the most accessible of the whole bunch, showing off exactly what can be built out of a Wrangler with a little patience on a budget. The Slim features a 3.6-liter V6, axles with a 3.73 ratio, 17-inch prototype wheels and a 10th-Anniversary Rubicon front bumper. Rock rails and a two-inch lift help get the Slim off the ground.

Check the full press release below for more information on all six rigs.

UPDATE: We've just returned from Chrysler's Design Dome and brought back with us a slew of pics of all of the vehicles. See them in our exclusive galleries below.
