This Algae Battery Could Power A Tesla With 200X The Charge
In a small lab, near a lake at the edge of West Berkeley, sits the prototype of what could revolutionize battery power as we know it. The secret to this power? Algae. OK, just hang with me here. Lots of research has already been done on algae’s possible power capabilities. Prototype creator Adam Freeman says this new kind of battery, the one he’s working on, could power even a Tesla. And he says it could do it 200X greater than the current lithium-based battery used today. He’s created a research company called alGAS that aims to prove just that. Freeman says the algae battery also charges faster and lasts longer than current ion batteries used in, say, your cell phone, iPad or a …

Hyper-V Replica to the Rescue!
Power outages are not infrequent where I live (something I find quite confounding – to be honest) and earlier this week we had an extended power outage and my Hyper-V servers were powered off uncleanly.

My Hyper-V servers powered up happily and started up all the virtual machines. Hyper-V Replica reported that it was in a critical state, but it automatically scheduled resynchronization for all of my virtual machines. But as I was going through the virtual machines, I found a problem. Something had gone wrong with my firewall. I could not figure out what exactly was wrong …
