UK spectrum map uncovers mysterious emissions in Cumbria


Highlands wireless

Yup, they hardly touched the Highlands, did not even go up the A9 between Inverness and Perth. Around here (15 miles north of Inverness) there are plenty of domestic wireless networks and about 10 BT FON public networks within a mile. Loads of them around the Western Isles as well. The Western Isles also has a broadband wireless backbone (not sure of the technology). And plenty of BT microwave links all over. No 3G where I am though.

CERN already been switched on

I'm pleased that CERN have admitted here that they have already switched the LHC on, it explains everything, 'cause reading some of this thread made me wonder if I had actually entered a parallel universe.

Sadly, not one where I have any more hair....


No point cutting the grass this weekend then...

Given the prospect of either a) being ripped apart as I'm sucked into a black hole or b) entering a parallel universe populated only by the geeks who have survived because they played way too much Half Life, I think I know which one I'll go for.

And just remember, should the aliens arrive just in time to warn us, its "Klaatu barada nikto" when Gort goes awol.

Must get my shiny, sliver suit ready....

Waste heat

Surely there is a better use for all that waste heat than dumping into the Nevada sky? OK, so little scope for using it in a combined heat and power system, but there must be some profitable use for it?!
