Re: Making hydrogen from water & DC

To make this thread even longer:<p>The world should get rid of the whole fuel-burning-powerplant-idea. There are so much nicer alternatives (all hastely patented by Shell or companies like your sincere president's oilcompany), like the Solar Chimney, or the solar collector in space 'beaming' energy ...

Re: Getting started in Microcontrollers

Some pics have only 32 assembler commands. That's fairly easy to learn.

Re: PICing it or How I learned to love Microcontrollers

It's a matter of costs / quality ratio. Not a matter of evolution. I expect the PIC to be along quite a while. As will be the FPGA. I'd rather see VHDL disappear, it's a stupid language.<p>Also, everything you would want to learn on PIC (assembler) and FPGA (VHDL) is found the this splendid net.<p>[...

Re: digital temperature/fan-control with LCD for PC, selfmad

looks ok. Does it double-buffer the sensor's voltagedrops?

Re: EM Waves / Particles

@Externet: The forum you mention shares a lot of bull with us, although I found some interesting things there. When I read several topics here they all sounded plausible to some extent :roll: <p>@Chris Smith: light has no mass therefore is not reacted upon by gravitational force (f=m.a) On the phase...

EM Waves / Particles

Hello everybody, I thought this the perfect place to discuss EM fenomena. I, being a student at Technical Universaty Delft, The Netherlands.<p>I would like your opinion on what Electromagnetic radiation is, on the level of particles and energy packets. I was wondering WHY the wave nature of the magn...
