The Water Integrator was an early analog computer built in the Soviet Union in 1936 by Vladimir Lukyanov. It functioned by careful manipulation of water through a room full of interconnected pipes and pumps.
In 1936 Lukyanov built the first computing machine for a wide class of differential equations - one-dimensional hydraulic integrator IG-1. In the thirties it was the only computational machine for solving partial differential equations.
In 1941, Lukyanov created a hydraulic integrator of modular design, which made it possible to assemble a machine for solving various problems. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional hydraulic integrators were designed.
Integrators were widely distr

"Red Miles + New Fenders"


The rear old fender broke in half when I was riding earlier this week. They were a lovely set of Honjo fenders powdercoated to match the frame.

The new ones have their appear, but I still prefer the matched color.

Making clean water from sunshine and air


This is a #BigFuckingDeal!!! Water from the air with low energy & low long-term operating costs!!! People I met (engineers & computer scientists) in the late 1990s from the #MiddleEast told me they (and many others since then) thought the next World War would be over #Water! One guy said they were welling up so much drinking water that the desert floor dropped closer to Sea-Level!!! That's a problem that Mexico City also experienced! Desalinization of ocean water isn't easy. This solution appears to be easy and efficient (unless some rare-earth materials are in short supply to produce the panels).

In this #Podcast, we get introduced to the company, Zero Mass Water, and its product .
