Warcraft bug: Increase your stats to infinity permanently

Master of Warcraft: Increase stats to infinity I quit playing WoW almost a year ago, but I still enjoy reading some of the blogs about it. Especially the ones that track bizarre exploits and bugs. It utterly amazes me that people figure these out.
This one is super easy (surprisingly), and easily bannable. THE STAT CHANGES ARE PERMANENT, LAST THROUGH LOG-OUT, LOADING SCREENS, GEAR CHANGES, DEATH, AND CANNOT BE REMOVED. You will get banned. Anywho... Go to "The Other World" as people are calling it. Best done by using the boat from booty bay, going to the barrens, and before the boat stops, jump in the water and DC yourself (Sometimes it takes a long time). Next, you should log in falling, and die. You should spawn by hammerfall. . . .
Click through for the method.

Undersea robot crosses Atlantic on batteries

The Raw Story | Robot completes first underwater crossing of Atlantic Ocean
Spain on Wednesday handed back to the United States a robot which last week completed the first underwater crossing of the Atlantic Ocean to help monitor climate change by tracking temperatures. The yellow glider, which resembles a rocket with wings on its sides, traveled the 7,400 kilometres (4,600 miles) between New Jersey on the US east coast and Galicia in Spain's northwestern coast in 225 days using only a battery and aided ocean currents. Dubbed the "Scarlet Knight", it was brought ashore on Friday at Baiona, the town where Christopher Columbus landed in 1493 during the return journey from his initial trip to the Americas.

On the pneumatic tubes of old New York

Pneumatic System of the New York Public Library | Manhattan, New York | Atlas Obscura They still use pneumatic tubes in the NY Humanities and Social Sciences library.
Put into operation in New York in 1897 by the American Pneumatic Service Company the 27 mile system connected 22 post offices in Manhattan, and the the General Post office in Brooklyn. The pipes ran between 4 to 12 feet underground, and in some places the tubes ran along the subway tunnels of the 4, 5 and 6 lines. At the height of its operation it carried around 95,000 letters a day, or 1/3 of all the mail being routed through out New York city. “I still remember those canisters popping out of the tube,”They were spaced one every minute or so, and when they came out, they were a little warm with a slight slick of oil.” said Nathan Halpern, a veteran postal worker in “Underground Mail Road.” On at least one occasion the tubes carried not just mail, but a live cat. “The postal workers seemed as fascinated by the nearly magical tube system as everyone else and, at least once, even routed a luckless cat through the city’s tubes.‘He was a little dizzy, but he made it." - Joseph H. Cohen, historian for the New York City Post Office.

EU scientists build thought-controlled robotic hand

EU scientists develop LifeHand thought-controlled prosthesis -- Engadget I am always impressed by this sort of thing.
. . . researchers at the Bio-Medical Campus University of Rome have announced LifeHand. Connected via electrodes to an amputee named Pierpaolo Petruzziello, the device is able to perform complex movements and is controlled by thought alone. "It's a matter of mind, of concentration," said Petruzziello. "When you think of it as your hand and forearm, it all becomes easier." The five year project, funded to the tune of about $3 million by the European Union, is just the beginning -- they still have to figure out how to make the implants permanent.

Solar power costs half as much as did just last year

Solar Power Costs 50% Lower than Last Year : CleanTechnica Ad that 50% less is pre-subsidy.
The research company found that equipment costs (in solar, wind, and other sectors) decreased throughout the year but these were offset by increasing financing costs. However, equipment prices are expected to continue falling whereas the financing market is expected to get better. New Energy Finance CEO Michael Liebreich says: “as capital markets loosen up and equipment prices continue their decline, we will see the levelized costs decline, finishing the year 10 percent below the end of last year across the board and far more than that in solar.” New Energy Finance found that thin-film solar will be about 25% cheaper than crystalline silicon technology. In a related story, iSuppli presented a couple weeks ago that as a result of these dropping thin-film solar panel prices, thin-film technologies are expected to take a larger and larger portion of the market share in the coming years.
