  1. Legal to learn about ? Yep. Legal to carry out, .... probably not in most places, but then again it's been said that no one should carry the discussed methods out unless it is legal for them to do so or they have the right to do it and have a safe environment to do it in
  2. Not a bad idea, seems like a good idea if rules that run along the same lines as the current ones in place are put into order.
  3. If anyone can get hold of some liquid nitrogen, you'll be impressed by your new processor speed . I believe someone actually did try that, case the processor within a liquid nitrogen case and clocked it to an insane amount.
  4. Multi-programming OS allocate a certain portion of current memory to each running program (each portion is called a 'page'), each page is swapped into and out of main memory, executed and allocated to RAM. If you happen to experiance (a regular occurance with 3D studio max and my computer *sigh*) a freeze, the processor clock is still in sync and can still recieve interrupt commands from the control bus, such as you pressing the enter key on the cntrl + alt + del screen to end task....a packet is sent and 'IF no REPLY THEN accept interrupt' and cancel / swap the 'page' .... that's it in basic terms well at least I think, hard to remember back to module 2 in the first year of college . Also it depends on what type of system it is - Real time, batch, networked as to the way it works some don't have fetch - execute cycle / stored program concept values so they work differently.
  5. Ok, I'm still sat here wondering what on earth I just watched ? I've not read all the comments associated with this thread yet - but it looks like I'm in the majority. WTF ? Well, I guess it was a nice try mate.
  6. Full article and credits : http://www.universetoday.com/am/publish/spaceshipone_launch_date_set.html?262004 The Article A privately-developed rocket plane will launch into history on June 21 on a mission to become the world’s first commercial manned space vehicle. Investor and philanthropist Paul G. Allen and aviation legend Burt Rutan have teamed to create the program, which will attempt the first non-governmental flight to leave the earth’s atmosphere. SpaceShipOne will rocket to 100 kilometers (62 miles) into sub-orbital space above the Mojave Civilian Aerospace Test Center, a commercial airport in the California desert. If successful, it will demonstrate that the space frontier is finally open to private enterprise. This event could be the breakthrough that will enable space access for future generations. Allen, founder and chairman of Vulcan Inc, is financing the project. Along with Allen, Vulcan’s technology research and development team -- which takes the lead in developing high impact science and technology projects for Allen -- has been active in the project’s development and management. "This flight is one of the most exciting and challenging activities taking place in the fields of aviation and aerospace today," said Paul G. Allen, sole sponsor in the SpaceShipOne program. "Every time SpaceShipOne flies we demonstrate that relatively modest amounts of private funding can significantly increase the boundaries of commercial space technology. Burt Rutan and his team at Scaled Composites have accomplished amazing things by conducting the first mission of this kind without any government backing." Today’s announcement came after SpaceShipOne completed a May 13th, 2004 test flight in which pilot Mike Melvill reached a height of 211,400 feet (approximately 40 miles), the highest altitude ever reached by a non-government aerospace program. Sub-orbital space flight refers to a mission that flies out of the atmosphere but does not reach the speeds needed to sustain continuous orbiting of the earth. The view from a sub-orbital flight is similar to being in orbit, but the cost and risks are far less. The pilot (to be announced at a later date) of the up-coming June sub-orbital space flight will become the first person to earn astronaut wings in a non-government sponsored vehicle, and the first private civilian to fly a spaceship out of the atmosphere. “Since Yuri Gagarin and Al Shepard’s epic flights in 1961, all space missions have been flown only under large, expensive Government efforts. By contrast, our program involves a few, dedicated individuals who are focused entirely on making spaceflight affordable,” said Burt Rutan. “Without the entrepreneur approach, space access would continue to be out of reach for ordinary citizens. The SpaceShipOne flights will change all that and encourage others to usher in a new, low-cost era in space travel.” SpaceShipOne was designed by Rutan and his research team at the California-based aerospace company, Scaled Composites. Rutan made aviation news in 1986 by developing the Voyager, the only aircraft to fly non-stop around the world without refueling. “To succeed takes more than the work of designers and builders”, Rutan said, “The vision, the will, the commitment and the courage to direct the program is the most difficult hurdle. We are very fortunate to have the financial support and the confidence of a visionary like Paul Allen to make this effort possible.” To reach space, a carrier aircraft, the White Knight, lifts SpaceShipOne from the runway. An hour later, after climbing to approximately 50,000 feet altitude just east of Mojave, the White Knight releases the spaceship into a glide. The spaceship pilot then fires his rocket motor for about 80 seconds, reaching Mach 3 in a vertical climb. During the pull-up and climb, the pilot encounters G-forces three to four times the gravity of the earth. SpaceShipOne then coasts up to its goal height of 100 km (62 miles) before falling back to earth. The pilot experiences a weightless environment for more than three minutes and, like orbital space travelers, sees the black sky and the thin blue atmospheric line on the horizon. The pilot (actually a new astronaut!) then configures the craft’s wing and tail into a high-drag configuration. This provides a “care-free” atmospheric entry by slowing the spaceship in the upper atmosphere and automatically aligning it along the flight path. Upon re-entry, the pilot reconfigures the ship back to a normal glider, and then spends 15 to 20 minutes gliding back to earth, touching down like an airplane on the same runway from which he took off. The June flight will be flown solo, but SpaceShipOne is equipped with three seats and is designed for missions that include pilot and two passengers. Unlike any previous manned space mission, the June flight will allow the public to view, up close, the takeoff and landing as well as the overhead rocket boost to space. This will be an historic and unique spectator opportunity. Information for the general public on attending the event is available at http://www.scaled.com. Based on the success of the June space flight attempt, SpaceShipOne will later compete for the Ansari X Prize, an international competition to create a reusable aircraft that can launch three passengers into sub-orbital space, return them safely home, then repeat the launch within two weeks with the same vehicle. The Discovery Channel and Vulcan Productions are producing RUTAN’S RACE FOR SPACE (wt), a world premiere television special that documents the entire process of the historic effort to create the first privately-funded spacecraft. From design to flight testing to the moments of the actual launch and return, the special takes viewers behind-the-scenes for the complete, inside story of this historic aerospace milestone. RUTAN’S RACE FOR SPACE will be broadcast later this year.
  7. Are you wanting to know so you can enable/disable something, such as EAX etc or just know for the sake of knowing ? If your wanting to do something, it would be easier for us to just tell you how to do it. But I agree with everything Dave has said.
  8. Are you at university ? If not and your talking about college (I assume you are since you want to go and study biochem) then I was once in your position. I took physics, computer sciences, chemistry and biology at A level, and chose to do a degree in genetics, and then a PhD, I just wish I had taken chemistry - because once you get over the initial stuff in college it gets real interesting at higher levels, so does genetics - but at uni you find out if you REALLY like the subject if your following me, I'm too far in to drop it now obviously but chemistry would of been fun Biochemistry is a good course by the way - what field within that were you looking at ?? I have a friend who's just started a degree at newcastle university in biochem they're really enjoying it.
  9. I too believe that there is indeed life on other planets, I don't think there is any doubting that considering the vast amount of galaxies and stars in them. It will be interesting to examine the much older planets of our galaxy when we have the technology to do so, just to see if anything has evolved to a state beyond which we can even comprehend. I find this article pretty interesting : http://www.universetoday.com/am/publish/advanced_civilization_become.html
  10. Where abouts do you live ? The institute of genetics at nottingham (not nott's trent) do, but it was at least a year ago since I last heard that so give them a call first if you plan to drop by.

    Yeah, the first year of uni started by pulling all nighters, which gradually gave way to two nights in a row with lectures most of the two days ... by the third year I had almost mastered it, and now I'm almost at 3 nights but it kills me these days....11 days is incredible.
  12. Ah, that's a good point - most probably why half the stuff isn't obtainable. Still, should be ok her dad's got a chemical lisence. The fruit sounds interesting, I wish I had taken chemistry to university and not biology. So are there any relatively simple methods to blowing up objects like fruit, I've tried the old smoke bombs when I was back at school - they're not bad for a laugh at that age.
  13. A good way to start out is to 'tweak' the scores on those damn little windows games, you know, pinball etc. Just find the reg section and edit the file .... Ever completed minesweeper in 1 second ? I have
  14. Also, where do you guys in the UK get your compounds from - most of the books my friend has in her dorm contain stuff I've never seen on the shelfs of garden centre's etc but it says they are easily obtainable (US ?)....do you extract them from other mix's ?
