Threat to third Fukushima nuke reactor

Martin Bochnig

But there is an even bigger risk, than "just" meltdowns:

Did you ever ask yourself what they do with the spent fuel?

--> They just have to store it forever. And the "cosmetic" explosion of the roofs of several buildings lead to a quite dangerous situation.

Read this article:

A 1997 study by the Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island described a worst-case disaster from uncovered spent fuel in a reactor cooling pool. It estimated 100 quick deaths would occur within a range of 500 miles and 138,000 eventual deaths.

Is Solaris really a bright choice for developers?

Martin Bochnig

Blastwave's "pkg-get" makes life easier, also in terms of KDE3

The http://solaris.kde.org site is - admittedly - a bit outdated.

Here you go: http://www.blastwave.org/howto.html

Just issue: "/opt/csw/bin/pkg-get -i kdebase_gcc"

(or take "apt-get" if you run Nextenda OpenSolaris)

Still too complicated?

There will also be a MRTXkde3 pkgadd- (and rpm-) packkage starting this summer (on www.martux.org), providing similar install-functionality.
