    Forget India etc VISA choses ICELAND

    Hi there
    forget running remote operations in places like India

    Iceland offers 15 year FIXED CLEAN Energy costs from renewable sources - energy is getting to be a biggest cost now in a lot of operations.

    VISA and a few other people are now running REMOTE data centers from ICELAND -- NOT CALL CENTERS Note.

    Case study: How Advania maintains a low PUE in its Icelandic datacentre

    I'm sure we'll see some more soon. We are also looking at the feasibility of exporting power to the UK -- we have almost an unlimited supply of geothermal energy so any Engineers who can come up with a way of transmitting it for about 1600 KM on the seabed you'll make so much money that even Bill Gates will seem like a "Bag person".

    Yes, we need to move away from fossil fuels and find renewable alternatives. I always thought that geothermal was the way to go. It is constant whereas solar is not. There are many places on this planet that spew out geothermal energy.

    I feel the oil empire quash these ideas.

    How about transmitting wirelessly on a twist that Tesla and Yagi tried to develop?

    Both Nikola Tesla and Hidetsugu Yagi attempted to devise systems for large scale wireless power transmission, with no commercial success.

    In November 2009, LaserMotive won the NASA 2009 Power Beaming Challenge by powering a cable climber 1 km vertically using a ground-based laser transmitter. The system produced up to 1 kW of power at the receiver end. In August 2010, NASA contracted with private companies to pursue the design of laser power beaming systems to power low earth orbit satellites and to launch rockets using laser power beams.

    Wireless power transmission has been studied for transmission of power from solar power satellites to the earth. A high power array of microwave or laser transmitters would beam power to a rectenna. Major engineering and economic challenges face any solar power satellite project.

Forget This Network
While trying to remove the neighbours wifi from the list of wireless networks hit "Forget This Network" on our own connection. Is there a way to undo or still connect to our wifi?

Wifi always forget a connection
as the title say. My wifi always forget the connection that have been made. Every time I want to connect it always ask for the password even though I ticked "Automatically connect". This happened on all wifi connection. Any help?

The desktop is fine but virtually nothing else can be...
