Geodetic Survey Division - Online Data
Topic: Science 1:12 pm EDT, Aug 30, 2004

] The CSRS Online Database allows users direct access to
] the Canadian Active Control System products (CACS); the
] primary horizontal and vertical control networks archived
] on the Canadian Geodetic Information System (CGIS),
] selected Geodetic Survey Division software/data,
] (GPSPace, NTv2 and GPS·H) and access to the CSRS -
] Precise Point Positioning (PPP) online GPS processing.

Okay so here's the deal. Setup your gps. Stand very still. Collect data from GPS to computer for about an hour. Submit data to these canadians. They do ionosphere corrections on the data. Email you back exact co-ordinates. Typical corrections are sub-meter with a lower practical bound of 1cm.

Geocache this biatch.

] This guy here is Peter Tsou. He's a scientist at NASA's
] Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and he's holding an amazing
] substance called aerogel. Aerogel is a solid, but it is
] 99.8% empty space. In fact, it very closely approaches
] the density of air. It practically IS air. It's still a
] solid, though, and you can even pick it up or set things
] on it.

Very neat. - 03/26/04: Aerogel

[cond-mat/0310049] Theory of Aces: Fame by chance or merit?
Topic: Science 7:00 pm EDT, Oct 14, 2003

Theoretical conversation between mikhail simkin and his thesis advisor:

advisor: So how's your research going?

mikhail: Yeah I'm not really "motivated", I sorta want to just sit on my ass and surf the net.

advisor: You can't just waste time searching for useless crap on the internet, this is UCLA dept of Electrical Engineering. You'd better have a publishable paper the next time I see you.

mikhail: crap...
