Re: Em3ev

I have heard very good things about this company but the shipping cost and time is insane. I ordered a battery a week ago and as far as I can tell it has not shipped. I am not blaming the company because they said delivery in 5-7 days but they might want to consider a US based distribution center (...

Re: Holiday Sales? Luna? Em3Ev?

Just an aside, from a former spamcop: I saw the post before it was gone, and it was an ad, a sales post in a discussion forum. According to the rules here on ES, those are only allowed in the marketplace section. Additionally, EM3EV (cell_man) already has his account here, so he should be using tha...

Re: Holiday Sales? Luna? Em3Ev?

Hi Mods, A newly created EM3ev Support account has been banned from the forum. The post mentioned a sale on this thread that was specifically asking about whether EM3ev was going to have a Holiday Sale. I believe that the post was in keeping with the spirit of the thread and was certainly on-topic. ...

Re: gas price thread

It's at its highest level since records began. I think the hope that storage could act as a buffer until the prices recovered looks to have been misplaced.

The storage tanks must be getting near the brim by now. If the oil supply doesn't falter the price will tank down even further when the oil can no longer be stockpiled by the U.S.

The most coherent explanation of quantum mechanics, though it doesn't mean it is correct, is the Many Worlds Interpretation.

Re: $35,000 Tesla Model 3 confirmed - Preorder opens in Marc

I read through all of that thread on that forum and I have several reservations about the improvements. The first of which was that it wasn't easily replicable by others. A 20 per cent improvement is an awful lot for just small deviations (adding solid disc wheel covers, blocking up the air intake a...

No it is stated that 200+ (think its 250+) real world driving conditions of range will be in the $35,000 car. So that means you don't need to spend more for decent range. I think the upgrades I will be interested in will be AWD and Performance. The rumour floating around on Tesla Motor's Club is th...

Re: $35,000 Tesla Model 3 confirmed - Preorder opens in Marc

Nice summary, and sounds about right to me. I had assumed the Leaf's awful looks were related to its function. From what you say, it seems that's not true: It's ugly and non-functional, with the aerodynamics of a wardrobe. If the designs were really going for "stylish" they need to go back to art c...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

I think the call has been made on the balance of probability: catastrophic airframe failure is probably less likely than a bomb. We also don't know what secret information has been delivered by the intelligence agencies. Put it this way, if it turns out to have been a bomb in the luggage hold, I wo...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

Completely irresponsible by the Tories. This type of scaremongering is something that they seem to specialise in. And UK authorities are now looking to get more powers so that they search people's browser and email history without a warrant. When that's your goal a bit of fear raising comes in handy...

Re: Russian Airbus A321 crashed in Egypt

Well it wasn't shot down from the ground. You need serious hardware for that as the Russians well know. And those tank systems would be picked up on satellite and social media as the BUK units were. Probably the result of metal fatigue from an earlier tail strike. If the plane was inspected properly...

Re: VW 'Volkswagen Uses Software to increase Pollution'

All cars cause cancer. I bet even electric cars cause cancer with their plastics and confined air spaces, to say nothing of the manufacturing involved in their batteries and electronics, or the fossil fuel combustion that provides them with grid power. But to see diesels as somehow worse than gasol...

Re: Is this guy the expert he claims ?

The battery is temperature sensitive. People with the Model S have found that charging in low temperatures takes a lot longer than in higher temperatures - an effect that is increased with low charging rates. Some people have also reported that regenerative braking will not work in extreme cold with...

If this does turn out to be true - and that's quite a reach and then some - is it really a good idea letting an advanced civilisation know of your existence?

Re: FLIGHT MH370, Missing JET

Almost certainly an accident IMO. That's not to say it wasn't a case of recklessly targeting known or suspect Ukrainian fighters knowing the proximity of commercial air traffic. I'm not sure if the BUK system can distinguish between them? It's not surprising that Russia has vetoed a UN resolution t...

Re: FLIGHT MH370, Missing JET

The Dutch official investigation concludes that it was a BUK missile that took down the MH370 flight. That basically means it is almost 100 per cent certain it was the Russians that murdered everyone on board that plane and not rebel separatists which should surprise no one apart from the conspiracy...
