Nuclear Fusion

Thanks to CIGPE for a very interesting presentation on the Joint European Torus nuclear fusion experiment http://www.efda.org/2013/05/jet-the-joint-european-torus/

Some very interesting issues around the economies of maintenance at large scale… 20k millisieverts per hour and an 800c reactor vessel after 1 month of cooling anyone? Not to mention 16kg of tritium injection per day (current total global sales = 0.2kg per year)ย  ๐Ÿ˜›

Time for a visit methinks ๐Ÿ˜€

Cross Application Semantic Back Button

The back button. A curious beast… What does it mean? Back is in the eye of the beholder, until now! To think of all the toil that went into coercing the back button to behave logically under the jsp mvc paradigm… And now, the Android back button works across apps – sacque magique! Open a web link from the facebook app, it opens in chrome. Press the back button and it returns to the facebook app ๐Ÿ˜€ cross-application-semantic-back-buttonย  w00t!
