    Animals and Fungi

    Thanks for clearing that up for me. As for living off organic matter, i believe there are newly discovered fungi living in the Chernobyl reactor, living off the radiation, that's non organic no? ^^ Ill dig out a source if you are interested.
  2. Sounds like benfords law to me http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benford%27s_law http://blogs.msdn.com/ericlippert/archive/2005/01/12/351693.aspx

    Animals and Fungi

    Id heard that fungi were more closely related to animals than plants... Is this true? And if so can you provide a concise explanation? Thanks ^^

    Ok, 5614, ill try restetting the router completely. Cap'n, i confess i thought the same for a moment, but i never used to have any problems whatesoever, in azureus you can limit the outbound and inbound connections, i set them both to 1, and still had the same problem, so thats not it Dak, mmm, i suspected as much ... thnx

    i tried uTorrent but to no avail... i have made a little bit of headway though. The problem is that currently whenever i start a torrent my internet connection dies and i have to reboot the router. it MAY be a problem with the router, cos it seems that it only dies when i get BT to use one of the ports that ive set the router to forward. Also, now for some inexplicable reason, my routers web interface crashes everytime i try to change the ports. SOMETING is broken somewhere, and im going to get to the bottom of it. It seems odd for the router to just decide its going to be broken out of the blue ... ahh well. Time will tell.

    well YT, if thats so, whats the deal with this? http://azureus.aelitis.com/wiki/index.php/Azureus_FAQ Im not saying your wrong, i just want clarification.

    Ive recently been having problems with bittorrent, it seemed that my ISP was choking bandwidth on 6881, so i changed to 40,000, and then recently to 65535... My point is that switching helped breifly, but now whenever i start a torrent, my internet connection cuts out, completely... (that was the problem i had with the other ports too...) ... the problem used to go away when i changed ports, but not anymore. Id Like to point out that i used BT for about 2 years on the same ISP with no problems, this is a fairly recent problem, and none of my hardware has changed, except me changing the Port Triggering on my router so it stands to reason the problem MUST be the ISP... I assumed that my ISP had blacklisted a whole portrange so i emailed them asking for a list of them. i got this reply Im sure thats just a blow off, as im nearly 100% sure thats not true, and ISPs DO have control over ports and they do indeed blacklist/choke ports. So can any of you confirm this for me? I dont want to write an indignant email back, only to be proved wrong... but i think hes just lying to me.
  9. yes, you may aswell use it. But heating the fuel like that before it goes in isnt the best use of it.

  11. I have VERY similar dreams, although sometimes is the low gravity and sometimes its a complete lack of friction with the floor. i have to push off objects to go where i want and i usually end up sliding into people by accident. Also the place changes all the time... I always put it down to me not feeling in control of what was happening in my life. Indeed i wouldnt be surprised if alot of teenagers have very similar dreams... im 19 by the way.
  12. You are correct in that the gas will have more "surface area" and thus could burn better. However, in the engine cylinder there is a finite amount of space. In order to exctract the most power from the engine u need as much as possible of both fuel and air. By heating the fuel and the subsequent gas u make it expand, the expanded gas leaves less room for the air (containing the oxygen to burn the fuel) that will mean either; 1. Alot of fuel is left unburned - resulting in low power output AND a dirty exhaust or 2. Less fuel is put into the engine which also results in less power. either way, the gains you may see from heating the fuel to make a gas would be counteracted by the aforementioned problems. hope that helps
  13. I remember watching a program on TV about a woman who used to drive through and around chernobyl on a regular basis. She was a motorcyclist (and a scientist) and loves using the open and empty roads to zoom around on. I remember her saying, stick to the middle of the roads and you will be fine... she demonstrated this by standing in the middle of the road with a geiger counter, then walking to the side of the road where said geiger counter went a little nuts. She also warned against going into ANY of the buildings as they may contain "pockets" of very high level radiation. Aside from that she was perfectly safe driving around. As for a holiday there, i wouldnt suggest whipping out a deckchair for a spot of sunbathing or going game hunting in the woods, but a drive through an eerily deserted city would be fascinating i imagine.
  14. of course theres hope! u just need to flex those mathmatical muscles a bit. google for some basic maths excercises to do, start off with GCSE mock papers and such, that will give u the questions, and if u have problem with the methods then google the specifics. when u feel u have a good grasp of that, move onto A Level mocks... just be sure u work through the excercises as they were intended, and when u get stuck, research the correct method. Just remember that what makes maths so delicious is that its all common sense, and fits together perfectly like some celestial jigsaw lol. so once u have the basics back in shape, everything else will fall into place. good luck and most of all, have fun!
