Look West-NorthWest at 7:22 to see the Shuttle and ISS for the last time ever
     Tue, Mar 08 2011 | 5:01P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Because it doesn't really have lights of its own, the best time to catch the ISS is when it passes your area shortly after sunset (when it picks up sunlight but it remains dark at ground level). This is good for us, as tonight's pass is scheduled at 6:56 p.m. and tomorrow's at 7:22 p.m. So while fly-bys are a fairly common occurrence, these viewing conditions should be nearly ideal. Here's the catch: the ISS generally moves across the horizon for only three to four minutes. So if you want to see it, you'll need to know exactly where to look. Toward that end, NASA's Human Space Flight page is helpful (as is Heavens Above, though it's been temperamental of late). Generally speaking, viewers should look to the west northwest. And whatever you do, don't bust out the binoculars or telephoto lenses before you get a handle on its location as you're likely to miss it all together. Once you have it in sight, you might want to consider using magnification."

25th Anniversary of Bhopal

One swig and you're whisked away to Bhopal, India where in 1984 an explosion at a Union Carbide pesticide factory killed locals and released a health nightmare that still persists.

Man charged $23 Quadrillion for pack of smokes
     Wed, Jul 22 2009 | 4:53P | Web News | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours after the purchase and saw the 17-digit number - a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500 (twenty-three quadrillion, one hundred forty-eight trillion, eight hundred fifty-five billion, three hundred eight million, one hundred eighty-four thousand, five hundred dollars).

Muszynski told WMUR-TV that he spent two hours on the phone with Bank of America trying to sort out the string of numbers - and the $15 overdraft fee. The bank corrected the error the next day. Bank of America said the card issuer, Visa, could answer questions. Visa, in turn, referred questions to the bank."

A broken or cracked LCD screen makes a laptop utterly useless, good thing PCSTATS can show you how to replace that busted laptop screen with a minimum of fuss and for less money than a service center charges. PCSTATS will be fixing a cracked LCD screen on a Lenovo T530 ThinkPad notebook, the general procedures outlined here work for any notebook though.
