In This Edition:
Keeping 1.5°C alive, power lasers, git command explorer, FB & BGP, & a universal sci-fi prop!

The first episode of Hector's new show Éire Nua on TG4 was very enjoyable and informative. In this show, Hector travels around Ireland meeting first/second generation immigrants to Ireland and talks to them about what living in Ireland is like for them.

Ericsson and PowerLight Technologies have developed a method to send power wirelessly to 5G base stations using lasers. The power lasers can send 480 watts over 300 metres and are expecting to upscale to 1,000 watts over 1km.


Git Command Explorer


Summitech created a very handy git command explorer tool that displays the relevant git commands when the user selects the desired actions.
