I have a 2008 vintage SUN WS doing AP by Lunatics on Linux, a 2012 HP laptop doing stock MB also on Linux and a new HP PC with Windows 8.1 64-bit and a Radeon graphic board on which I might install also the Lunatics package, but I am trying it on ATLAS@home besides vLHC@home, climateprediction.net and Einstein@home. Its CPU is a 4 core AMD A10-6700 at 3.7 GHz.

Il Napoli ha perso 3-1 con il Bilbao ed e' fuori dalla Champions League. Intanto le squadre italiane di serie A hanno ingaggiato 85 stranieri per farli giocare nel Campionato Italiano. L'unica buona notizia e' che Balotelli, cittadino italiano, e' andato a Liverpool per 20 milioni di euro. Contenti loro...

I've been a physics and astronomy editor at Mondadori Publishing House for 12 years and I have also done free-lance writing for Italian magazines but also in English for UNESCO. I would be happy to apply for such a position but, alas, I am 79 and cannot warranty a long term job. But I think SETI@home is in need of a communicator, since people often identify SETI with the SETI Institute. I've just read that the Tradate Astronomical Observatory in northern Italy is to launch a project to scan the sky for laser beams emitted by aliens.Its director, so say the newspapers, is the director of the SETI project for Italy, which of course does not exist.

The GEO600 scientists have already taken account of quantum fluctuations in their interferometer. So maybe the Fermilab people should contact them.

Maybe they will detect gravitational waves now that the LIGO interferometers in USA, VIRGO in Italy and GEO600 in Germany are being upgraded. They work in exactly the same way.

I forgot KAGRA in Japan. It should be completed within 2015.

It is not sufficient to build a new telescope. You must also find a way of paying the salaries of the people who operate it, and there is the rub, as the history of the Allen Telescope Array and the new 64 meters "Sardinia" radio telescope in Italy shows.

A Berlino, ai campionati europei di nuoto, Gregorio Paltrinieri vince la medaglia d'oro nei 1500 stile libero e Tania Cagnotto nel trampolino da un metro. Il tempo di Paltrinieri e' anche un record europeo.

Ho appena comperato uno hard disk esterno USB per un backup del mio nuovo PC con Windows 8.1.. Costo 42.32 euro + IVA 22%, totale 51.03. Ma in realta' pago 69.99 euro. Sulla fattura compare una nuova voce "Compenso per copia privata", 15.00 euro, + IVA 22% (sic), totale 18.30 euro. E' l'infame balzello voluto dalla SIAE in quanto io potrei scaricare musica da Internet senza pagare i diritti d'autore. Ma io non scarico musica, solo sistemi operativi. Cosa c'entra la SIAE?

"Brave new world" by Huxley, written in 1935, is a prophetic book. It mentions helicopters, rockets, drugs and sex as a pastime. It does not mention computers, however, but it mentions genetic engineering.
