Hello dear colleagues!

imageToday I would like to talk about electronics that I work with in my spare time, namely it is a racing car engine control.
Let's start describing the situation as a whole. In the car racing often the result does not depend only on a sportsman as in many other sports, but also it depends upon the equipment that sportsman uses. So, there is needed a professional approach to training and tuning up the racing car. Of course, there are a lot of nuances. But if we roughly divide this into the parts, we will get the chassis adjustment and engine tuning. Today I would like to tell you what electronics is used to tune up the engine of racing cars.

The modern racing engine (and the engine in your car) is controlled by a specific computer: Electronic Control Unit. It controls all processes that are going on inside and all on-board electronics. The most popular solutions are manufactured by the companies, such as Motec and Pectel. I am using in my car Motec M800, which is going to be as an example that I will discuss how it works.

I would like to talk about the image replacement techniques. I think almost everybody was faced with some moments in the layout, for example, when you want to use the graphic object for the page title, and at the same time to keep the text below for the search engines and the printed version. I think no one wants to break semantics of the page.

Let's just discuss the time scale. The processor of your computer lives by the nanoseconds: the majority of the CPU can do several things for one nanosecond; generally, these are the simple math and the comparisons. To make this perception easer, we assume that you are the processor, and instead of nanoseconds you live and work second by second. In order to make it clear, we apply this metaphor to the single-core processor.

Windows XP wallpaper is a famous image, showing a blissfully relaxing vista of green rolling hills and a bluer than blue sky. This default wallpaper is one of the most viewed images of all time that is called the “Bliss”. If you go to Google and search for the word “Bliss” and the first result will be the Windows default wallpaper.

However, Windows image is named Ireland for Dutch users, which has mistakenly led many to believe that that’s where the image was taken.

There are easy and hardly fixable bugs. If the easy bugs could be fixed and forgotten, then the other type of BUGS remains with us forever. I want to share with you 3 such BUGS.

The first bug occurred in 2005 when I worked at the firm of FriendScout24. We had tools for monitoring in which was html tag in every line on the server. If the server responded normally there was green color, if it did not there was red. Usually, it showed all green, and then on one fine day the servers started failing, 4 servers went down for 3 minutes. Then, after 5 minutes everything turned green again, as if nothing had happened.

imageIBM Research scientists have successfully demonstrated the ability to store one bit of information in as few as 12 magnetic atoms. Today’s disk drives use about one million atoms to store a single bit of information. The ability to manipulate matter by its most basic components — atom by atom — could lead to the vital understanding necessary to build smaller, faster and more energy-efficient devices.

The power of CSS3 is enormous and in this tutorial we will see how to exploit it in a very creative way. We are going to create some thumbnail hover effects with CSS3 transitions. On hover over a thumbnail, we will reveal some description of the thumbnail, using a different style in each example.

Please note that this will only work properly in modern browsers that support the CSS3 properties in use.

HTML markup


The structure of markup is very simple and intuitive. Create a container that will have our image and all the other information.

Inside the view insert an element with the class mask that will be responsible for our effects driven by CSS3 and inside it we will put a title, description and a link to the full image. (For some examples, we’ll need to add the mask element as a separate element and wrap the description in a devi with class content.)

The website has a convenient preview: each texture can be instantly used to the whole page as the background. Now there are 93 patterns, a collection has been updated with outstanding new items every week.
