Solar Cells

I love the idea of solar cells, I really, really do, and I used to love Treehugger but I had to give it up, as well as my continued viewing of Hot UK Deals because of the amount of time I was wasting...

But one thing I can't give up is my browsing of Digg and so I was pleased to see this article about Cheap 3D Solar Cells Are 6x More Efficient, Work Underground. We just need to get to the point where we can apply them using a spray gun and all my energy needs will be sorted.

Speaking of which I'm just about finishing Stephen Baxter's Flood, I was sort of avoiding it because I thought it was just the thing that was on the telly but it isn't. It's actually much, much worse. Read it if you fancy but don't expect it to be a happy read, and what has he got against Tibet?

I'm enjoying messing about with VBScript for my lastest Open University module (I'm going to put some source code here later when FileZilla decides to work again):

Jack's House

Blair Brown or Kate Mulgrew

So me and Sparkx are arguing about Fringe and about whether or not the actress playing Nina Sharp, the CEO of Massive Dynamic, and the actress who played Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager are one and the same.

I reckoned not but he bet me a 4-pack of Hobgoblin that they were. So:

Blair Brown or Kate Mulgrew

The image above was generated using Morph Thing and the link the to page with the original images is here. And, while they are both similar, they really are not the same. Nina Sharp is played by Blair Brown and Kathryn Janeway is played by Kate Mulgrew.
