  1. A tree grows all the time and uses lots of energy to do that, and stores lots of energy in seeds. An animal or plant grown to our purposes wouldn't. Its more a question of how you would utilise the energy produced. It would probably be better to just think of producing an energy producing set of organs. Digestive, respiritory and waste removal systems with something like an electric eels shock system as an output. Feed it waste food and garden matter.

  2. I expect it could work. You would need to use liquid fuel, and the water would need to be kept to a minimum. Erm, how about expanding the fuel to use as the presure medium then burning the vapour after mixing with air to heat the fuel. Theres no big bang, just steady pressure so the motor could be made light but mega torque with an up ratio to prop.

  3. By inverter I assume you mean a device to take low volts dc and output higher volts ac. You could not build an inverter with the components you have. Also it may be hazardous to try on your own without learning a little more first. If you wish to build one now I would suggest getting a diagram then get it checked to make sure it will perform as you wish it to. Make sure the diagram lists component part numbers and the pin names. You could then build by ordering the correct parts and just follow the diagram but, you must learn enough to recognise the hazards or get help before you start construction.:)

  4. I don't know if windows uses common components in keyboard maps, but, you could try changing from uk english to usa english and see if your ctrl key works. Also do you have the on screen keyboard option. This may help narrow it down to a file. I don't know if you can just reinstall the maps.

  5. I think maybe it was born of frustration. The amount of time spent moderating threads that just constantly repeat, this is correct and factual because the bible says so would wear anyone down. But at least they didn't find a creationist site and do the same back. I understand your point but they are entitled to there opinion. They just chose to create an appropriate place to express it.

  6. It takes 320 attoseconds for an electron to move from one atom to the next. If you could make a supply switch fast enough and the bulb tough enough, the bulb would be off when the on portion of the mark to space ratio was shorter than 320 attoseconds. So I say at 2 minutes it would be off. :P
