Reboot Your 787

The FAA has ordered all Boeing 787 aircraft to be turned off and on again every 51 days to prevent "stale data" from misleading pilots! The data that could be affected include airspeed, attitude and altitute! Oh and the stall warning horn might also stop working. WTF! Spot the multinational aircraft manufacturer without a working QA department.


Ternary State Data Molecule

Professor Damien Thompson and a team at the Bernel Institute at the University of Limerick have co-discovered a molecule that can maintain three seperate and stable asymmetric states within a broad temperature range of -100 to +100 °C. The discovery means that the molecule can be exploited to enhance current data storage technologies that operate on just two asymmetric states (0 and 1).

Public Books Database


Many academic presses have made hundreds of their titles freely accessible online as response to teh COVID-19 crisis. have published the Public Books Database to bring a list of all these book publishers together.
