Let's talk about AlphaGo and....go

Another good article about the AI implications (you might have to be logged in to LI to read this):

Edit: On a side note, I'd like to at least understand the game as I've never played I don't think. Will have to read up on it.

I am curious slow?

I just converted to Win10 on 5+ year old hardware, and gotta admit its faster than Win7 was.

That give me hope for my old laptop. Everyone else that I'd heard try it with an old machine ended up spending many hours fixing it or a brick.

new chainsaw time

Dakine Builder pack isn't perfect but works well for what I've been doing. Not cheap or that easy to find though.

Last time I checked there was daylight in the summer (also periods of high residential draw for Air Conditioning) from when I get home from work at 530 until 8. But I dunno maybe this summer will be different.

You miss this?

The flip side might be some questionable Nuclear powerplants going up instead. It seems at times that it's the Wild West in china and lots of shortcuts get taken.

I haven't been to China but did do an installation in a nuclear facility in Taiwan about 20 years ago. The construction quality was shockingly poor. We called the concrete "dirtcrete"; there were big dirt balls [HTML_REMOVED] voids in the wall [HTML_REMOVED] ceiling, made it very challenging to install concrete anchors to hang pipe and cable tray. Even form work was poor, every stair was a different height and depth. You had to be very careful going up or down.

EV's are as simple as building more rooftop solar and charging during the workday and evening.

No one is going to be charging EVs with solar at night unless they also have some form of large energy storage to fill during the day.

Poor title for this article, but interesting to read how the EV market is developing in China.

China is trying to build an empire of electric cars — but the strategy has one huge flaw that will benefit Tesla

I took my chainsaw course with a Husky 359, I sure wouldn't want to ride with one!

Searched this thread but didn't see a link to this article.

It is a little dated now (Jan. 2016), but still interesting.
