OSNews, Generic OSes The open source Contiki operating system and its commercial Thingsquare distribution are making strides towards the connected home. According to a Computerworld article, a new LED light bulb manufacturer is putting small computers into their light bulbs. Each computer runs the Contiki OS, which gives each bulb an IP address and allows them to be controlled with a smartphone application. To connect the bulbs to the application, the bulbs use both Wi-Fi and the much lower power IEEE 802.15.4 mesh technology.

Not epic, when a midget on his high horses gets to attack Russia by winter, what should happen happens...


Napoleon was actually about 3cm taller than the average Frenchman of the time.

Napoleon attacked Russia in the middle of Summer (June 24). He began his retreat in Autumn (October). Napoleon had never intended to attack Moscow but was forced to do so by the Russian military tactics.
