Ricoh Aficio MP C4501 and Linux

September 28th, 2011

A couple of days ago, I saw someone wheeling a new copier/printer/scanner into our office. Turned out it ended up here in Engineering to replace the Canon unit that used to be here. I never had managed to get the Canon to work on my Linux laptop, but this new Ricoh unit caught my attention because of the "Adobe Postscript 3" decal on it. If this thing understood Postscript, there was a chance... So I decided to give it a try.


Faster than light neutrinos?

September 27th, 2011

The response of the "public" to the faster than light neutrinos has been quite amusing, but also sort of sad to me. It is amazing how everyone seems to have an opinion even if they don't have the slightest understanding of what was done in the experiment. To some, Einstein's theory of relativity has now been definitively proven to be wrong, and the whole field of physics goes with it. Others seem to think a 750 km long tunnel exists between Switzerland and Italy. After all, how could you send subatomic particles from one place to another if there was no such tunnel, right? :-)
