Those Britons have designed some real gems. This Jaguar was also my favorite car in the 90s and early 2000 years. It’s a monster but still a great car for the daily use on the streets. The Saleen S7 looks not much different.

How about this rascal:

Bei diesem Gumpert Apollo handelt es sich um das Fahrzeug, welches anlässlich der Ausstellung auf dem Genfer Autosalon 2009 als absolutes Einzelstück gefertigt wurde. Dieses Fahrzeug hat am 13.08.2009 auf der Nordschleife einen Rundenrekord aufgestellt für straßenzugelassene Fahrzeuge mit einer Zeit von 7:11,57 Minuten. Der Apollo ist umfangreich dokumentiert. Es wurde

well, that bumper looks like ‘rascal’ haha i  don’t even know that brand so i just googling and this one is kind of interesting tho.

With twin-turbo Audi power and a claimed top speed of 224 mph, this thing means business.

A lot of excellent car manufacturers out there, but the Jaguar XJ220 will always be a timeless classic.

on April 6, 2019

absolutely.

The funny part is, I liked to play Gran Turismo 2/3 (PS2) and I also used often the Jaguar aside of many more great cars. Now, all those cars evolved to oldtimers or  classic cars which increased their value.

also i used to play Assetto corsa that similar with Gran Turismo, and i’m always used jaguar xj200 and many other old ones. well, It took a while, but people starting to appreciate it

  • en gathering information on vintage tweed champ output transformer

  • while I’m working on a tweed champ 5f1 replica with 10″ speaker, I recall they say the output transformers affect the tone.

    and, I noticed I never saw the back side of champ chassis before. it’s where I start finding a vintage OT for my project

  • en More than Human

  • The next evolutionary step for humans. Some of us will make the conscious choice to have our bodies integrated into a machine such as a spacecraft or a probe. By integrated I mean encased in a pod permanently connected up tp a “Matrix-like” system where our bodily functions are taken care of by the pod and where the sensors of the ship become our senses and we are the mind and soul of the machine.

    A perfect blend of machine and flesh.

    Over time our bodies would mesh with the pod and we would look very little like a human. To human eyes we would seem grotesque and removal from life support would mean death, So, our bodies remain in a windowless pod greatly shielded from radiation, heat or the effect of gravity or g-forces.

    Then as this hybrid being, we could survive where no human could survive. We could live indefinitely if we slowed the body down while keeping the brain functioning. We could explore the universe this way. We would be more than human.

  • en Is cloud gaming the future of online video games?

  • French start-up Blade thinks it has what it takes to succeed in the space. Its cloud gaming service, Shadow, aims to bring the experience of playing a powerful gaming PC to any device, be it a laptop, tablet, phone, or smart TV. Blade’s goal for “Shadow” is substantially more ambitious than any of its peers. Rather than creating a service that delivers content, it wants to replace your console or gaming PC entirely. Booting up Shadow serves you a virtual Windows machine, which you can use to play your games on Steam, Origin, Humble, and Itch.io. The games purchased by yours, and yours to keep, from the standard storefronts. Your Shadow machine is just like any computer you’d own, except you can access it on any device for which Blade has created a client, including Macs, PCs, iOS, and Android devices. Shadow also works directly on Sony smart TVs through an Android client, and a client for Tizen-based Samsung smart TVs is on the way.

    The goal of all this is bold, yet simple. Blade wants to make the home PC obsolete. You can find more informations on their website:

  • en DNA: Life’s Changelog

  • One of the most interesting things about DNA is that we have discovered, in humans, the 3% of the code which builds our physical bodies also has encoded within the bodies of all of our ancestors. We can switch on these old systems (in animals of course since this would be highly unethical to do to human beings) and give a chicken teeth or scales. We are not just us. We are all the physical forms in our lineage.

    Now, that accounts for 3% of our storage. What of the other 97%? It is memories. Now the skeptic will go “yeah right Mr. Science”. Hear me out here though. Why is it so hard to accept memories encoded into the helix? In fact all “instinct” is encoded memory. What beach to lay your eggs by the light of the full moon if you are a tortoise. Where to migrate if you are a starling or a monarch butterfly. Sharks even have maps of the magnetic markers on the seafloor. None of this is learned. It is there at birth.

    There is a very good evolutionary reason for this. Rapid adaptation. We have a repository of past experiences so we do not have to reinvent the wheel every time our environment changes. Human beings have noted this for at least as long as we have records and this has given rise to theories of reincarnation which appeared in nearly every civilization on Earth. Science has resisted this because it sounds too “supernatural” in the same way they resisted the “Big Bang” because it sounded too much like creation. Yet, it is anything but supernatural. It is entirely natural and the only explanation which makes any sense.

  • en Sprague 16uf 475v fits perfect to Astron vintage paper sleeve

  • 5y3 rectifier tube in my 5F1 tweed champ went dead a month ago. and everything was fine after I put a new 5y3 tube.

    then, the same thing happened today. I figured out this 16uf 450V Astron minimite filter cap was the problem.

     

    Sprague 16uf 475v fits Astron Minimite 16uf 450V paper sleeve. my champ sounds firm and clear than ever with this new cap.

    You need to strip off the blue shrink cover to put it in the paper sleeve as you can see

     

     

     

     

    Sadly, I’ve lost 2 of these 5y3 tubes from this issue. but still good with the better sounding from this small tweed amp.

  • en Question to the Slowbean community. (Stone / rock processing)

  • Hi community, since a long time I’m pondering about two topics that interest me. Stones / rocks and their industrial processing. If I want to cut rocks or slice stones in small pieces I have to use large machines, the energy consumption of such stone cutting machine is way too high for somebody who would just start to cut / slice rock. So, my question is: Do you have any ideas, thoughts or know about eco-friendly techologies which are energy efficient for cutting rocks into small slices? Every input regarding this topic is welcome.
