About optically connected processors for home use and many things

Nora, Thanks, I will keep that in mind. If you cast tiny angular (square, triangular, for example) blocks of plastic on ends of an optical fiber, then polish the whole thing, that would give a fiber that would alighn properly with a corresponding hole and fiber (or fibers).  It is something that human hands could

Note about why I built Sculptor.Org

J, I talked to my sister, T, yesterday. She is one who has painted all her life. Maybe she will have time and space to do it again. For ten years, about 20 hours a week, back from about 1993 to 2003, I ran a website for sculptors. At the end it had 50,000 unique

Comment on Pictor Open Source Radio Telescope – Recommendations

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70plmWJDt2k Open Source: https://github.com/0xCoto/PICTOR Website: https://www.pictortelescope.com/ Please leave the settings and all form fields. Don’t clear them. Just leave them the same as the last observation.  I am having to re-enter them ever time I make a request.  I am making series of requests.  Many people might.  Tell them how many files they will receive, how many

All sky cameras online should use lossless format and share with cities and schools and groups

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 I tracked down your allsky camera images. When will people realize that jpg is a lossy format and that the pixels are not true representations of the intensities and colors of small regions. I call it “eye candy”, only suitable for eyeballs, or the truly desperate who have nothing else. Please ask him to

Open Algorithms, Open Algorithm Groups, Open Algorithm Development

https://www.facebook.com/TheNRAO/ I sent a private message. Guess you guys don’t check that very often. I was asking about raw data from radio telescopes that can be used by “open algorithm” developers for training and experiments. Richard Collins, posted on Facebook on 30 Jun 2021.  My first public use of “open algorithm developers”. “open algorithm development”

Comment on finding help on Hackaday.io – building global communities for learning

​Is there a way to ask for help? I have many projects that I would like to try, but often am missing critical pieces that probably are obvious or trivial for someone else. For instance, I want to write algorithms for pan tilt zoom imaging with multiple cameras. The algorithms are relatively easy – but

Active Magnetosphere and Planetary Electrodynamics Response Experiment – website status?

Robin, Haje, I am looking at global sensor networks, and got to magnetotelluric arrays.  For background I was reading about natural signals that can be used for calibration and reference and came to http://ampere.jhuapl.edu/index.html To be explicit, I was at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birkeland_current and clicked on the link to Project Ampere that took me to https://web.archive.org/web/20050211120508/http://dysprosium.jhuapl.edu/  Then

Feedback to Hotjar at iopscience.iop.org Is there anything more we could do

https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6382/ab685e Dear HotJar and IOP Readers, Your questions are too specific. I came here because of a search on Google for gravitational waves software, particularly how the signal on the two arms of each detector is extracted from the single interference strain data. Now your articles are all in text and pictures, so I have

Comment on CTBTO web pages – Infrasound and Gravity

CTBTO Webmaster, VDEC contact: I did a screen clip of the page at ctbto.org/specials/vdec/  You can see that it is overlaying text over text.  I highlighted the overlay and could sort of read it.  I found the “here” to find the VDEC application form.  I changed the magnification of the page but that just makes
