The introduction of the microprocessor, a single chip with all the circuitry that formerly occupied large cabinets, led to the proliferation of personal computers after 1975. What began as a sideline business selling polished metal mirrors to pilgrims in Germany (to capture holy light) evolved into an enterprise that altered the course of art, religion, politics and industry: Johannes Gutenberga€™s movable type and printing press. We judge ourselves by our noblest acts and best intentions, but we are judged by our last worst act.
There are 10,000 species of ants, and for several million years they have coved the earth, except Antarctica [no pun intended]. Credit has existed globally since the early days of trading and mercantilism, but it wasna€™t until the 1920s that oil companies issued a physical card to repeat customers who purchased fuel for their new-fangled automobiles.
Therea€™s nothing so hollow as the laugh of the person who intended to tell the story himself. CHALLENGE #111: Why is the numeric keypad on a computer (7-8-9 at the top) upside-down from the numeric keypad on phones (1-2-3 on top)? English belongs to the very large Indo-European language family [Germanic, Baltic, Slavic, Celtic, Latin, Hellenic, Iranian, Sanskrit et alia, which led to Polish, Welsh, French, Greek, Kurdish, Punjabi, and English, to name a few]. The real test of character comes when doing the right thing may not be in our self-interest. In the past 5,000 years the human genetic code changed 100 times faster than it had in any prevous period.
In the 1880s, Samuel Augustus Maverick was a Texas cattleman who refused to brand his cattle, seeing it as cruel.

BIG Q #27: Since poverty is deeper among children than the elderly, why does public spending on the elderly vastly outstrip spending on the young? E-mail and Web searches consume 1.5% of the nationa€™s electricity last year, and if current trends continue, by 2010 the power bill to run a computer over its lifetime will surpass the cost of buying the machine. Biologically speaking, humans have changed little in the 100,000 years [or 3,000 generations] since modern humans emerged on the African savanna--not enough time for serious adjustments. Rembrandt was a master of chiaroscuro (kee-ahr-uh-SKYOOR-oh), the use of contrasts of light and shade to enhance the depiction of character and for general dramatic effect.

When lima bean plants are attacked by spider mites, they release volatile chemicals that summon another species of mites to attack the spider mites. Funeral directors promote embalming: replacing body fluids with formaldehyde, a carcinogen that eventually leaches into the environment when the buried body decays [800,000 gallons annually]. In 2001, President Bush exempted some 3,500 plants that spew toxic chemicals from the Right-To-Know law.
Consultants get paid up to $500,000 to name a drug, and insist that letters are imbued with psychological meaning: P, T, and K, they claim, convey effectiveness.

AutoStitch Panorama allows you to stitch a series of photos together to generate 360° panoramic images.
Ecalcs offers voltage, current, voltage drop, and many more calculations at the push of a button. IntermediateBy bridging the division between communications and computing, Apple’s iPhone has taken the mobile technology world by storm. Voice prompts, allowing hands-free access to calling and most features of the music player. A sensitive digital compass that retains accuracy at various viewing angles (the only digital compass I’m aware of that can do this). A 3-megapixel camera, with an autofocus that allows good close-ups (about 2 inches), including quality document photographing. Then, there are the apps, third-party-developed software based on the iPhone’s software development kits—tools, templates, and examples for building software for the iPhone operating system. Most apps that can be used for solar assessment use the iPhone’s built-in sensors to perform their feats. Sun Tracker ($14.99) For solar installers and DIYers, this is the “must-have” app that incorporates every sensor and nearly every feature of the phone to provide accurate site assessments and reporting. When complete, you end up with a sun plot for your location, showing that day’s sun path compared to winter and summer solstice sun paths.
Sun Tracker software also allows you to superimpose a panoramic photo of the site (see AutoStich and AutoPan below) on your scan with the ability to edit the photo size to get a good fit. Once you settle on the array location, running the Analysis feature—which takes about 30 seconds—produces a graph showing the percentage of solar energy captured per square meter per month, the percentage of shade derating per month, and percentage of available sun hours for each month. You now have the option to produce a two-page presentation report with your company name, logo, presenter, and customer names.
Solmetric, the company that brought us the SunEye digital site analysis tool, recently acquired Sun Tracker and will begin marketing the app under its own brand, SolmetricIPV. Sun Seeker ($2.99, 3GS only) An assessment tool that spans several applications, Sun Seeker allows you to quickly check building overhangs and sunlight penetration into a structure, as well as site a solar window. The third screen is a three-dimensional heads-up display that superimposes the sun’s path and solstices on the real-time image, along with the elevation and azimuth of what the cross hairs are pointing at.
AutoStitch Panorama ($2.99) While this isn’t dedicated solar software, AutoStitch is a useful partner. AutoPan ($1.99) Created by Sun Tracker’s developer, this tool automatically snaps photos at optimal intervals, using the phone’s compass as you scan across the landscape to set up the perfect panorama in AutoStitch. MotionX GPS ($2.99) Far ahead of most handheld GPS units, MotionX GPS integrates with Google Maps. Equivalence ($2.99) A step beyond iConvertIt into the more esoteric and scientific conversions and units. Conduit Fill Calculator ($2.99) Based on the 2008 NEC, Conduit Fill Calculator helps you figure proper conduit size and fill factors. Decibel Meter ($1.99) Accurate and fast, with optional displays and peak capture, Decibel Meter is useful for figuring out sound mitigation effects on gensets and general decibel measurement needs. Brushes ($4.99) Although there are numerous drawing apps that are much cheaper, if not free, Brushes is a powerful drawing tool. Air Sharing ($4.99) A major shortcoming of the iPhone is its poor ability to import documents from your computer and then read various file types.
A user-friendly interface that’s packed with apps is sure to be a crowd-pleaser, but the iPhone isn’t without its downsides.
The iPhone’s big screen is a beauty, but combined with its powerful processor and typical heavy use of apps, the battery is typically drained in less than three days. Jeff Oldham is the owner of Regenerative SOLutions and a solar contractor, with more than 30 years experience in RE and sustainable development. From siting to choosing the right equipment, here’s how to squeeze maximum energy from your PV system. For computers generally referred to as PCs, see IBM Personal Computer and IBM PC compatible. In the better sets, the traditional flaws of plasma (burn-in) and LCD (limited viewing angle, weak blacks, weak fast motion) have been largely eliminated. In 1958, Dinera€™s Club launched the first card available for payment to general merchants: 27 participating NYC restaurants. Kugel, an Orthodox Jew and author of a€?How to Read the Biblea€? says that there is essentially no evidence--archaeological, historical, cultural--for the events in the Torah. Koerner which he said depicts: a€?a horseman determinedly charging up what appears to be a steep and rough traila€?--representing his own political journey against steep odds and naysayers. The rope was not strong enough to carry them all; they decided 1 had to leave, or all would fall. According to the Energy Department, vampire gadgets account for about 25% of total residential electricity consumption in the U.S. Guppy submitted a fish to the British Museum that was already classified, but the name stuck [and the fish is still in a jar at the museum]. For installers and solar geeks, this single device can replace a day-pack full of instruments and reference books.
When held up to look at or to trace the sky or object, the compass continues to function accurately, unlike other compasses that need to be held level. These sensors include a sensitive accelerometer that detects position and movement, global positioning sensor (GPS), light sensor, proximity sensor, and a camera. But downloaded from Apple’s iTunes store, more than 90% of the apps are less than $10 and thousands are free. Start by naming your site and then the GPS plugs in the latitude, longitude, elevation, and heading. A scan can be completed in about 10 seconds, so you can quickly evaluate a number of potential locations and easily choose the best one.
This is generally only needed for presentations; the trace should be your guide, rather than the photo. Just launch the camera and hold the phone up to the skyline or roofline: the display shows exactly what is behind it, allowing you to read azimuth and altitude angles as you move the cross hairs around your field of view.

It has the capabilities required by professionals, but its ease of use and price puts it in reach of the solar enthusiast. This allows you to instantly see the relationship between the target object and the sun’s paths. It allows you to take a series of photos and stitch them together, enabling 360-degree panoramic images. Tip: Keep the Elevation at 30° as you pan—this minimizes stitching distortion and puts the bottom of the screen at 0°. Aimed at electrical and mechanical engineers, it can cope with mass, magnetic fields, and flux and insulation, just for starters.
Each of these categories contains a good depth of detail and many factors to consider—far too many to list here. My trusted ±2 db meter and the Decibel Meter were within 1 to 2 db of each other when I measured the constant sound from my bench grinder, and the app is much faster in capture. These programs fill your iPhone’s screen with bright white light (or, if you’re in a festive mood, pick from a selection of colored screens). It’s worth the buck even for simple math, if for nothing but keeping running totals on-screen.
That leaves you e-mailing the doc to yourself and then crossing your fingers that the phone can open it.
Currently, AT&T is the only available cell service provider for iPhones, leaving no other options or competition.
But after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. No man spoke, but the woman said she would voluntarily let go of the rope, because, as a woman, she was used to giving up everything for her husband, kids and men in general, and was used to always making sacrifices with little in return.
As an added bonus, the iPhone—offered in 8-, 16-, and 32-gigabyte memory options—has terrific storage capacity for apps (and other files and media). Next, set the array azimuth and tilt (or, if you are working with a tracking array, select from single or dual-axis tracking). You can also animate the sun’s arc over your scan for different months to see variations in the site’s solar exposure over the seasons. One minor limitation is that it can be awkward to position yourself at array level to perform the scan on a rooftop, but by lying on your side, you can get within 12 to 18 inches.
You can also trace the sun’s path on its curve line and see what objects will cast a shadow—and where you need to move to avoid it. The accuracy of this software is remarkable—it’s less distorting then anything I’ve seen at any price for a computer!
Perfect for figuring out your coordinates when you’re trying to track down that property in the boonies or find your way around congested city streets. Simple and fast, using the classic iPhone “roller bar.” It does a reverse convert with one keystroke.
Outside urban locations, where cell towers are fewer and farther between, getting a good connection may be an issue. His work is 60% off-grid and 40% grid-connected, with about half of it international, primarily in Latin America. So, plasma has truer color and does better in darker rooms, and LCD has more vivid color and does better in bright rooms. It also will synchronize to your Macintosh or Windows contacts, notes, and calendar, in addition to your iTunes library, and allows you to check e-mail and browse the Web using your cell phone signal (or 3G or wireless Internet access), making working on the fly a snap.
But only the 3GS will also display heading to site along a building’s eave and instantly get a calculation of the roof pitch and orientation azimuth at a glance—with your boots on the ground!
You can capture the screen to your iPhone album or e-mail it directly from within the program. The TuneJuice, which uses four AAA batteries, will add about 60% to 70% to the phone’s typical run time, more if you carry extra batteries with you. So if you get introductory pricing, you can end up saving money on future expanded and improved releases. You may optionally enter a per-kWh cost of energy, and the model of PV module and inverter you’re using, from a built-in database with a wide variety of module and inverter manufacturers and models. If the satellite signal is blocked, it switches to cellular tower triangulation to help you find out just where you are. Handy features include a reading lock at a key press and an auto-lock, which waits for a stable reading (for you to quit moving) and then locks the display.
With its 5,400 mAh, sealed lithium-ion battery, the I-UP will increase the phone’s run time or completely recharge it six to seven times.
Plus, most developers listen carefully to user feedback and massage their products accordingly. But, therea€™s no such thing as a 1080p TV broadcast (cable, satellite, anything), and wona€™t be for years.
Actually, it was an illustration for a Saturday Evening Post short story, a€?The Slipper Tongue,a€? about a slick-tongued horse thief fleeing a lynch mob. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. Athens, to honor god of wine & drama, Dionysus [Baccus], where comic actors wore padded phalluses as part of their costumes. Everything you need is loaded into the iPhone—no network connection is necessary to complete a site assessment, so you’re good to go even in remote locations.
Terrific for measuring in out-of-sight places, like under an eave where you cannot see the display (it is accurate only on the side of the iPhone that does not have the volume key).
