Wow

Does that mean CERN will now stop draining all of our bandwidth, cell tower access, electricity and become less of a black hole risk?

I thought the correct unit for high speed bandwidth was the kilowrist?

If only CERN understood the internet as well as Ted Stevens.

"They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the Internet. And again, the Internet is not something that you just dump something on. It's not a big truck. It's a series of tubes. And if you don't understand, those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and it's going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material."

Does Princeton know

I was there the other day and it looked like it was still in New Jersey. Is the space portal a side effect of the supper collider or did they just physically move it?
