I just spent the weekend reformatting my home server from Windows 2012R2 Data Center running Hyper-V to VMWare ESXi 6. Now installation issues aside, as ESXi can be very picky, ESXi seems to be exactly what I am looking for as far as virtualization goes.
Its ok if can’t wrap your head around it… the sum of 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5… to infinity to me would be an exponentially huge number. Most non mathematicians would a agree, theoretically it would be right? However its wrong, the answer is in fact, -1/12 and is found all over the place in the world of Physics.
The following video does some mathematical calculations to show you how exactly that the addition of all natural numbers comes to be a negative fraction.
Even after watching the video, I am still amazed at how its possible.
Yesterday I posted an article about how events like Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster have destroyed our world, and how we cannot help but destroy our natural resources. Today, a friend of mine on Facebook, posted a link to a High Existence post entitled “10 Reasons Why EarthShips Are F!#%ing Awesome“. I started looking at the concepts and it blew me away. We have the ability to create homes that 1. Recycle material like old tires, tin cans, and plastic bottles, 2. Reduce our strain on our ecosystem, by reducing or eliminating our need to be attached to the grid (electricity), 3. Cost little to nothing yearly to operate. And they cost very little build, from a couple of thousand dollars for the smaller models to just under $100,000 for the larger more luxurious models.
