Geek Speak / Re: Has anyone tried Windows 10?
« on: 29/03/2015 02:26:35 »
If you use money manager with Windows 10 you must ensure that each individual account is listed in the compatibly list then the YBS manager works fine.
The latest version 10041 is now available as an ISO which makes it far easier to set up a new drive rather than the update that had to be used previously.

I haves serious doubts as to whether I am my "sons" father I am B- what could my "sons"  group be that would exclude me from being his father ?

With the two recent cases of two apparently mentally disturbed pilots deliberately crashing passenger aircraft it seems that the measures to prevent access to flight decks by terrorists are counter productive suggest improvements.

The problem with trying to reduce populations to a sustainable level is that while you can reduce the birth rate you get far too few young people having to support the old people as the Chinese have found out.
what you need to do is kill off the olduns I have often thought free cigarettes for olduns would be a good idea but they would only sell them to the young'uns instead of smoking them.

In effect what you want to do is get your lo spec computer to receive video from the internet and re transmit it simultaneously I don't think it is possible I have a reasonably high spec computer and couple it to a lo spec one so that the what is displayed on the screen of the hi spec one is transmitted over the internet to the remote one this works fine to transmit a relatively static screen but it won't transmit a video.
You will have to spend some money to do what you want to do there is no free lunch.

Take a look here

Why do you not buy something like a Nvidia 8400GS video card and fit it into your computer (making sure that you have a suitable socket on your motherboard), this card has an HDMI output socket that would feed your TV as well as sockets to feed your computer monitor.
I you do not have a suitable socket you would have to replace the motherboard which you would find a rather technical job but the new mother board would probably have a HDMI output built in.

you can buy from various on the internet USB to RJ45 adapters that enable you feed a USB signal thru a considerable length (100m ?) of regular Ethernet cable, I have such a pair in my hand right now but I cannot recall the supplier but Google will tell you

The latest update version 10041 seem to have got rid of all the IE11 bugs but you must take care to use compatibly versions where appropriate.

Many LG TV,s have a USB socket that can be used input movies that you have download from the internet to your computer not all TV models that have this USB socket are configured to use it in this way but it is quite easy to re configure them to do so and I have full insrtructions how to do it and it works fine on my LG32ld420

Geek Speak / Re: Microsoft Frontpage
« on: 17/03/2015 21:25:41 »
Microsoft frontpage seems to have been replaced by "Quartz" Microsoft expression web 4 step by step that is available via "Vuze Bittorrent client" about a 15 minute download on my internet connection about 150 MB
This seems mostly a book about how to use it but MICROSOFT EXPRESSION STUDIO 4 ULTIMATE  is available from various sites

I seem to have asked an unanswerable question as by definition dark matter does not interact with light!

12
Apparently electric eels can generate a 2mS pulse of 500v and 1amp, not a very useful source of power

13
Theology takes no account of physics all things are possible in the supernatural as the word implies

14
It is believed that the mass of galaxies is largely made up of "dark matter" hence we are immersed in the stuff are we right in assuming that the speed of light outside this sea of "dark matter" is the same as that which we measure locally

15
Am I right in assuming that if I have a charged plate capacitor containing e=cv^2/2 and pull the plates apart v increases to reflect the energy used to pull the plates apart ?

Geek Speak / Re: How can I start my minidisk from software
« on: 14/03/2015 00:02:45 »
As I had no advice as to how it can be done directly I have gone down the tone burst route that only requires a small amount of hardware and works fine.

If the coin is of any value get advice from professional coin people the slightest damage can make a vast difference to its value.

One thing that these enthusiasts that wish to travel near the speed of light do not consider is the danger from near stationary micrometeorites with which they may well collide.
Even at the modest speed the ISS travels a fleck of paint is considered a danger while as you begin to approach light speed the photons of the CMBR become gamma rays

If the source impedance is capacitive you can put a similar inductive impedance in series with it to cancel it out but the construction of such an inductor is quite impractical at the frequencies involved, better just keep florescent lamps glowing.
Here is such an inductor to use in the 2-8 MHz range you can imagine the size of one to use at 50Hz.

Why is Stonehenge considered a wonder of prehistoric Archistructure it was pretty crude compared to what was being built in Egypt at about the same time.
No one has built a pyramid using the labour intensive techniques that were used in Pharonic times for the same reasons that manned trips to Mars have not taken place, the money cannot be allocated!

The problem with trying to harvest power from high voltage power line using a nearby antenna wire is the very high impedance of the source, the open circuit voltage of the received power is very high depending on the ratio of its capacitance to the power lines compared to its capacitance to ground but due to the low frequency the output impedance is very high making it impossible to harvest any useful amount of power

Geek Speak / Re: HDMI cable weirdness - help me understand
« on: 05/03/2015 22:01:11 »
In a weak moment I connected the monitor on my computer with HDMI cable as the 8400GS video card that feeds the monitor has a HDMI connector, I was appalled how blurred the 1680/1050 pixel display was and quickly reverted the normal cable.

Wireless electricity is useful for charging the batteries of electric bus's at bus stops and charging your cell phone without you having the bother of plugging it in, I don't think we will ever see the grand scheme of Nikola Telsa come to fruition

24
It would be a very foolish thing to accept a reward for betraying a mafia godfather I don't think you would live very long to enjoy it

25
I don't know how old this ex? mafia man is but I don't think they send you to jail in Italy if you are older than 70 and the wheels of justice grind very slow in Italy.
Any competent mafia godfather could make an offer he couldn't refuse to the registrar clerk and get his birth date altered.
