    The hackaday LED article is worth a read.

    I don’t see the table long enough to get the joke… :-/

      its periodic in time, not content. 😉

      Hint: use a cell phone to capture the picture.

    You know the action movies where the hero(ine) takes a single glance and sees everything in the room? It seems more difficult to do in this instance. Perhaps because the period is shorter than visual memory can capture. Or, my short term memory is shot.

    All of the good chemistry jokes are gone.

      • Mr Bill
      • 9 months ago

      That joke was a gas.

        I thought it was noble.

      I have no reaction to that.

      I’ll check back periodically for more chemistry jokes.

      No, you’re just out of your elements.

      Elements in the National Periodic Table will be used to synthesise new ones.

        Ah! The element of surprise.

    Oh balls, on my monitor at the office, my clone brush work isn’t nearly as good as I thought. 🙁

      • Wirko
      • 9 months ago

      It’s perfectly good (I suppose you started with an empty wall and kept cloning clutter from everywhere until it all looked as, well, a normal busy desk).

    In honor of this being Radeon VII day and Periodic Table day I give you: Manganese, Technetium, Rhenium, and don’t-blink-or-you’ll-miss-it [just like how long the Radeon VII stays in stock] Bohrium.

    I can tell by the downthumbs that the usual suspects think Radeon VII is a failure already (plus they probably failed high school chemistry). Come on guize! Lighten up a bit: No matter how bad it gets, you can always get free upvotes by saying that ray tracing sucks!

      • Mr Bill
      • 9 months ago

      I give you Beryllium, Magnesium, Calcium, because AMD was not Strontium, enough to Barium NVIDIA?

    • chuckula

    Yawn. Wake me up when your periodic table matches that harmonic frequency of the wall and causes it to collapse Tacoma Narrows style.

      It does. And it did.
      You just stopped watching too soon.

      It takes a bit of time for that volume of air displacement to do the work.
