    Graphene Infused Carbon.

    i doubt we'll see any practical use any time soon. it seems these days nothing happens with research and new discoveries. graphene was discovered in the 60s, but nothing done with it until a few years ago. and it's not in mass use yet. battery tech? seems there is a new breakthru every few...

    Tablet / Laptop battery usage while shut down.

    Free Photo Hosting Site???

    Imgur is probably the best one for hotlinking. Doesn't even have to be your pic.

    A debate without conclusion

    i got my hands smacked and had to repent and say several hail marys for using store bought pasta sauce for a dinner once. then i had to spend a day learning to make proper pasta sauce. you just don't piss off old 4'6" tall italian ladies. you get the stink eye from them and it's like you are cursed.

    Free Photo Hosting Site???

    if you are just sharing with close friends and not on creepbook and the like, imgur is fine. you can make your images non indexable. you can even upload images without an account. you can make your gallery private if you wish.

    I have a light question (115v vs. 230v)

    the electronic power supplies in newer equipment can sense voltage and adjust accordingly, if designed to do so. old school transformers had taps on them that had to be manually set. a hair dryer would be an example of something that can handle multiple voltages. a table lamp? probably not.

    I have a light question (115v vs. 230v)

    NO! running 320v into a 230v device is not fine! he's not in the usa. canada has different voltages than the usa. 320 is close to 347v, which is 3 phase commercial lighting voltage. it is extremely dangerous. european 230v is not the same as north american 240v. 230v is line to neutral. 240v...
