I'm guessing the data was collected from ISPs. :roll:
Probably.

Saw Star Trek again today :D I was thinking more about that warp drive thing I linked to earlier, http://www.space.com/businesstechnology ... drive.html , which I remembered about after hearing Scotty in the new Star Trek saying, "It never occurred to me to think of space as the thing that was moving!"

If this is possible, and if it's how it was achieved in Star Trek (admittedly this is a hypothetical discussion, since Star Trek is fiction :)), then there are other implications.

1. It makes perfect sense when you see the ships accelerating to or decelerating from warp speed in near-instantaneous time. Since they weren't moving in the first place, there would be no "G-forces", and hence no danger from rapid changes in velocity (since there wasn't actually any change in the velocity of the ship).

2. Since there's no velocity, there's no momentum. Hence, this type of transportation requires a system which is constantly active. If you turn off the warp drive, you will immediately stop. You can't "coast".

3. This does not permit them to transmit information at effectively faster-than-light speeds. Radio waves do not have warp drives (see #2), and are still limited to propogating at the speed of light. So, they would need another way to solve this. The game Mass Effect had an interesting proposition here: transportation was accomplished via stable wormholes that were created by some advanced, ancient, long-gone civilization. They put the moral equivalent of a network hub at both ends of all of these. This had the consequence that if you were far away from a wormhole that communication was probably laggy.

4. I imagine that any objects floating nearby the space ship that jumped to warp drive would be carried along with it. So, don't jump right out of the space dock into warp speed. But hey, if you leave your coffee cup on the hood of your car top of the ship, it'll still be there when you arrive at your destination! (And due to #1, it won't have fallen off or spilled!)

I thought mass bends space-time, so if you would find some way to put a black hole in the front of your spacecraft and find a way not to get sucked in, we would be able to make 1 km/h as acutual speed to 10km/h when calculating the speed with normal space-time. By the way warp drive is shrinking the space before you and expanding it behind you right? (I don't know how we could be able to expand space-time, maybe anti-matter has anti-mass, I don't know) When sending information we could do like a mail man service, put a black hole in front of a rocket with your usb-stick attached to it with your message on it. And then shoot the rocket.

The good thing of this is that no one would see you coming as the black holes absorpes all the light of your spacecraft.

So anytime you check your e-mail, or anytime Picard opens a channel to Starfleet at earth, he's really sending a rocket-propelled USB stick? Every single time? What you're describing works more for something like an interstellar postal service, not interstellar ... AT&T.

does the black hole absorb light? or does it not allow light to escape? :wink: I'm reading about light cones right now. I'm still not sure I'd chance a worm hole . sounds rather icky.

He talks a lot about that in The Universe in a Nutshell. "Absorb" is a word us silly sub-200 IQ people would use ;)

yes I picked up that book yesterday. It is a much easier format to understand than his first book. I'm also awaiting "The Book of Numbers" by Peter J Bentley (second down on the wait list). I also picked up a book on the Quantium Ten. Its more biographical and an excellent read.

"absorb" yes I was actually questioning what Boude said.

I've got an idea for Firefox tab extension but being me, there's a chance that it's hidden somewhere in the world but it does exist. And even if it didn't exist, for me to make such a think would be rather hard as I can't extension code at all. But more importantly, I actually used my imagination for once. :shock:

Basically, when a tab loads, there is that throbber thing which is constantly turning. But what if instead of it just turning, it turned the more of the page loaded? Similar to the circular throbber-ish circle on Google Chrome when you are downloading a file.

I might even make a PDN prototype but now I seem to be left with the job of doing my brothers homework for him. :x

PS: Sorry if my explanation was hard to understand.

Though black holes aren't realy holes to be honest, more dots, I mean, you see pictures (not actually pictures of course) and it's like a purple vortex. But no. Really no.

Purple vortex? Whatever you're smoking, I want some. NAO!

Sunshine was the first movie I ever watched on Blu-Ray (other than the in-store demos of side-by-side HD and SD Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix)

That would be sweet to watch in Blu-Ray... I have a PS3 to do it. Just not an HDTV...(yet). My dad said we would get one after Christmas, but that still hasn't come true. :roll:

Whoa, three mods online all at once. How'd this happen?

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Actually when Picard opens a channel he would have to shoot and receive about 16 rockets per second (What the average framerate?) to talk to Starfleet. Well let's take the internet: Your PC is linked to other PC's by a wire, what goes through the wire? Yes, electrical current, actually millions of no current or some current signals (the mail men), don't you think the guys who invented the computer heard from other scientist:"That would take thousands of signals". All we have to do is downsize the rockets and find put a bluetooth thing on the rockets so you won't have to put all those usb-sticks in one PC, that would take a lot of work. Also a central place of information in every solar system would save some time (sending a rocket from one galaxy to another could take a few seconds). Also if we would be able to create a wormhole, why wouldn't we be able to upsize it and send our spaceship through, without planting a black hole in front of it?

PS: Didn't really thought that light-absorption stuff through, you're right about that. And remember we're just speculating.

Completely out of discussion:

Why does Google Chrome have incognito mode. I'm getting suspicious.

Look mommy i wasnt doing anything bad! You can even check the history!

For those who don't know whats incognito its shown in this:

Do we really need skills? I don't think so with PDN. =P

wolframalpha is out, its absolutely amazing!!!

even though the stephen wolfram doesnt know, its

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/

you can basically do anything!

microsoft vs apple

c_t

for__

itll give you answers that qualify with the space.

so itll be i.e c_t = cat cut etc.

also you can do maths, i.e x*7*y*90

and other complicated stuff i dont know :)

and if you search up websites, and you click satellite image, it shows the location of the server!

this may truly be the best search engine XD

But a purple vortex looks cooler and depicts better than a black spot in space. :D
