    Do they plan on cleaning the beer off of that motherboard before powering it up? If not, it may never work again.

    Not to spoil anyones fun, but that socket doesn’t look quite thick enough for actually opening a bottle. It’ll bend and break, barely making a dent in the cap. Those heatsinks look like they just might do the job.

    Damned amateurs. All you need is a piece of paper or anything with an edge which includes coins, tables, etc. But I’ll be honest, I have an opener on my keychain. Never know when I might run across a bottle without a twist-off cap.

    Must have already eaten the CPU — Guiness and chips.

    Toward Pure White Light: Next-generation LEDs Show Bright Promise

    Science Daily � Scientists in India are reporting an advance toward discovering a Holy Grail of the illumination industry — a white LED, a light-emitting diode that produces pure white light suitable for interior lighting of homes, offices and other buildings.

    The researchers report the first success in developing a new LED based on a new phosphor from semiconductor nanocrystals of cadmium sulfide mixed with manganese.

    I have no idea what they mean by “pure white” light.
