Soapless washing machine by Sanyo. Works by using ultrasound to remove dirt from clothes, then electrolysis to remove dirt from the water to prevent it from settling back on clothes. The electrolysis part only works in Japanese water with that model, due to the particular chemicals that Japan uses. Should see if they have introduced a model for the U.S. That would be keen.

Secret Art of Chip Graffiti by Harry Goldstein. Fun article on finding small pictures (a few hundred microns big for instance) on popular microchips. Including such things as Dilbert drawings and the Florida State Seminole logo. Built out of the circuits themselves. Pretty nifty.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
