would this work to create a 3d display?

okay, I saw those video glasses devices they have, and as many have two screens, one for each eye, I was wondering if you could process a 3d signal to each eye, and enable the glasses to show 3d. it would be somewhat like those autostereoscopic and lenticular displays, but by separating the left and right channels and sending each to the screen for that eye only, the device should be able to give 3d without polarizing or shutter glasses. is this possible? how would one go about splitting the left and right video channels and feeding the split signals to each screen? my idea here was to try to create a simple cheap 3d display for people who use 3d video cameras and camcorders, as this would be an easy way to view the 3d images without dealing with headache inducing lenticular or autostereoscopic displays. thanks for any input.

Is your local shop ripping you-off?

I was vaguely interested in wholesale prices for shop products, and managed to find this price-list. The wholesale price is WSP, RSP I guess is the Recommended Sale Price (I think there must be tax in there somewhere), and whatever POV stands for would be the margin. If you think someone's expensive: either they've got an expensive supplier, or you don't know WSP, or they are making the most of you. (But remember, 8-'till-laters work hard to earn a living, they do need some margin) P & H price-list - as a major distributor these prices will be around the "good as one can get" mark. E.g. Haagen-Dazs 100ml £23.99 for 24x = £1 per tub        Hovis Soft 800g £1.14 ea        Cheesestrings Cheddar 21g £9.24 for 24 = £0.385 ea        "What not butter" 1Kg £18.14 for 12, £1.51 ea Or just marvel at what crap you can stock your shop with.... It's only a bit of searching, you could check your prices (different country) by searching specifically differently. (Look for who is delivering stuff) I do remember a local shop which was regarded as a rip-off to the extent some of my friends would steal stuff by way of compensation... not much though, Pot-Noodle here & there...

Convenient djvu to anything readable conversion?

This is a problem I've been trying to solve for the last few weeks. I've finally been given a kindle (New Year presents), and it is great not to have to carry three or four books to school every day - usually it was the thing we read in Literature, some novel I read on my way in the underground, some Physics I have to read and understand and some Physics to help me understanding the first lot. It's been doing a great job, except for  not liking in the cold and getting a bit mad outside, but most of the Physics books I have and can find are in djvu for some reason known only to people who made books on Physics and Maths, so they can't be read on it directly. Is there any way to convert the books to something readable, and better not pdf, because it shows really slow and small and moving around the page is very unnerving especially early in the morning... I'd also love to save the pictures. Any ideas?

The interview is about how the project got started, where they found helpful information, interesting things that happened, how they felt about it at the end, etc. The goal of this research is to understand the role of online resources in the process of making.

If you're not in the area or that's not convenient, we can chat on the phone or over IM. We have gift certificates to thank participants for their time.

There's a new (ish) one out.  I saw rough copies last year, but the reference pages of Dawkin's latest book led me to this web page. The image of the Tree there is, officially, "simplified", but still contains 3000 species, so it has a convenient "you are here" marker (second image, plus PDF file). Apparently, to see it properly, you have to print it out at a size of four and a half feet or more...
