So what does this mean? You want to tell me that when they conceived the idea of the LHC, they had no idea what they were doing. So how much do the understand now? .. 10%, 20% or 100%. I doubt that it is 100%, so they have no idea what will really happen when this thing operate at optimum levels and those little protons hit one another and decide to follow their own paths and proton heads.
So the end of the world might be long before 2012.

There is always this debate on what will be the next killer app, be it on the phone, desktop or Internet.
This is what Wikipedia say a killer app is:
.. that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology ….. A killer app can substantially increase sales of the platform on which it runs.
And here is gapingvoid’s view of it:
I definitely likes Hugh’s view much more. And looking at the Wikipedia definition, it make so much sense.

Nokia started shipping the N900 today.
Still have to see when it will be available in South Africa, that is if we will get it at all.

Sometimes I am just amazed at some things. Do you want to know how small a carbon atom is against a coffee bean.
The University of Utah’s Genetic Science Learning Center created this zoomable window that compares the size of a coffee bean with smaller things like a grain of salt, a paramecium, a red blood cell, a human egg, a glucose molecule, and so on, all the way down to a carbon atom.

I quote from 2oceanvibe
Never before was there a better excuse to grow a moustache and get away with it. It’s the month of Movember and ll you guys should be aware that you have a right, nay a duty to grow your moustache. And no-one can stand in your way either – not your boss and not even your angel (nor your gay lover). Because you have the best excuse ever – it’s to raise awareness for Men’s health issues, like testicular cancer. That’s right! So who are they to stop you doing it?
So come-on guys, get those moustaches growing. Here are some looks that you can go for.
I am a long time moustache person .. I cannot remember that I have ever gone without one. I cannot decide whether I have the “Porn Star” or “Undercover Brother” look. People that know me or have seen my photo, feel free to comment and give your opinion.
And if you want to win a t-shirt pop over to Stii’s blog and get blogging.
