  1. Magnet-Based artificial gravity

    Well yeah because the repulsion is really weak. You'd need a magnet even stronger again and I want to figure out how strong it would actually need to be.
  2. Networking settings for an idiot...

    No they aren't. Most people in the US and Europe have a dynamic ip address basically when you connect to the ISP's router you get an ip address automatically and when they reset their router you get a new ip. Companies have a static ip address this means that the ISP's always gives the same ip address to the company every time they connect to the internet. Dns is how a domain name is converted to an ip address Dynamic Dns is a paid service in which companies update the ipadress that the domain name is pointing to. They do this through the use of software. Dynamic Dns can be free but is unreliable. The benefit of the static ip is that if you have a camera watching your garden and the ISP resets their router you still have internet access. With a dynamic ip you could be offline for half an hour or more each time.
  3. Magnet-Based artificial gravity

    Magnets weakly repel organic tissue. How strong an electromagnet would be required to simulate artificial gravity and would a magnetic field that strong be harmful to a person?

    For dynamic dns if you don't want to get a static ip you could use (free) and an android app to update your ip to their server

    Okay so that router should be okay. *(It doesn't support static routing but hopefully your internet company doesn't require that for the static ip. Note that most cisco routers don't use coax so you might need to switch to an Ethernet wall plate instead of the coax one.) All internet providers give a dynamic ip address by default. It changes every few hours which isn't okay if you want to access your camera and need to know the ip address of your home network. They will tell you exactly the configuration details required. To port forward with your current device follow this. To assign a static private IP address to your two phones follow this. That should work fine.

    You'll need A gateway that supports static routing if your current gateway does not like A static ip from your internet company or pay for a dynamic dns resolution service and a domain name. Then you will need to. Set a static private ip address for your android phone and then install a camera streaming app such as or (rtp steams can be played with vlc) Portforward your static private ip address to a port on your static public ip address.
  7. I would imagine it is an antenna transmitting signals at 800 MHz
  8. Can you create more memory from memory

    That refers the wires that run into the computer processor or ALU. Space is a consideration there was a time when a 64-bit computer would be very heavy and therefore no good for laptops etc.
  9. Can you create more memory from memory

    1 bit is a unit which quantifies exactly one on/off state. Early magnetic core memory used rings which could hold a single charge in the on/off state. The magnetic ring would change the output current in the wire if it was charged or not.
  10. Transferring bookmarks to favorites...

    Yeah it is greyed out on my computer too. It is most likely because internet explorer isn't really updated anymore (last update was in 2014) so your other browsers are newer than internet explorer recognizes as real. Microsoft edge should recognize them however and uses the same favourites location as internet explorer. The import option is under settings in from the top right dropdown menu.
  11. Transferring bookmarks to favorites...

    They are stored under C:/Users/Username/favourites . Just navigate to the folder and shift + delete everything. It works perfectly fine for me just click import from the menu bar and follow the instructions. You might run into trouble porting the favourites from Linux though so I would download firefox on the windows machine and sync the favourites from the internet. Of course if you could also install the Linux version of firefox on the windows 10 machine and use that.
  12. If you want to learn properly then you should take a course in it offensive security and cisco generally have courses. Alternatively you could try learning the metasploit framework on your own just be warned that it is only a pen testing tool and most ISPs will cut your internet access off if you use it on their network without prior approval from them.
  13. Building a geological clock - software choice?

    D3.js can do that for you or Google charts. Highchart.js can too but it is paid software.

    Using all caps is considered rude. Why shouldn't we introduce AI in this era? I really want a Jarvis-like setup for my home.
  15. Mac OS X emulator for Windows 10

    Switching to PIIX3 chipset from the emulator seems to have stops the Mac VM from crashing every time I run node or npm. What I have done so far is far more complicated than some of the articles I was reading. So far I had to Set Intel Virtualisation and VT-d in bios to enabled Disable Hyper-V from add or remove programs (There should be a better way of doing this bit because it stops me from using the windows phone emulator without it being re-enabled. Found a bunch of non-working Virtualbox versions and am currently running version 5.1.30 Had to keep the Virtualbox installer and repair installation to get 64-bit option to appear Then follow the rest of the steps from the article.
