Jan 18th 2010 2:06PM @LanMark The population density of Manhattan is more than four times that of Hong Kong, yet the best residential broadband available here is 50Mbps for $140/month, while in Hong Kong you can get 100Mbps for $13/month.The fact that it might cost a lot of money to provide broadband to Kansas doesn't explain this. Only lack of competition can.
Jan 18th 2010 11:46AM The relatively weak state of American broadband, and the extraordinarily high prices we pay for it, sadden me.In Hong Kong, you can get 100Mbps for $13/month. See http://www.hkbn.net/bb1000/ for example.
Aug 31st 2009 2:31PM I can't install yet -- the drive door pops open during the mandatory reboot and the process starts back at zero. My only guess is that it has to do with my third party firewire 400 card. I'll try installing with that removed tonight.
Apr 23rd 2009 9:53AM Routine negative film has a resolution of about 5000 linear dots per inch. That means that a shot on 35mm film contains about 33.5 megapixels of data. Since the original post talks about medium format film, we have to consider negatives up to 6x9 centimeters (6.25 times the size of a 35mm frame or the sensor in a 'full frame' digital camera). That's about 209 megapixels of data.There are subtleties here involving the resolution needed to capture individual gains in high contrast regions of film, and you might if you were being extremely conservative cut these numbers in half. That would take you to about 16.75 megapixels for a good 35mm camera, and 105 megapixels for medium format.Cheers.
Apr 14th 2009 5:30PM I would ebay this thing in a flash.
Apr 2nd 2009 1:26PM i could use this
Mar 27th 2009 12:49PM i could actually use this thing
Mar 24th 2009 3:51PM I would not mind one of these at all.
Feb 4th 2009 9:52AM Oops, that's 127Mb TIFF, not 127Gb. The latter would be an even bigger challenge.
Feb 4th 2009 9:49AM Count me among the Quicksilver users. My Dual 1GHz PowerMac just celebrated its seventh anniversary. I have upgraded the RAM, hard drives, optical drive, and networking, all at modest expense. It is getting a bit slow for some of the things I do (ever try to rotate a 127Gb TIFF file in Photoshop on a PowerMac G4?), and I plan to buy a new Mac Pro whenever Apple gets around to releasing Nehalem models. The current Mac will go in the basement, perhaps to be used as a file server.I think seven years is the longest I've used any computer as my primary machine. My IIcx lasted about six (1989 - 1995).
