Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

No, it's "sociopath", you idiot. Not sociapath...

Am I discussing computers???

Fields exist in outer space, too. Disrupt part and you encounter resistance. It isn't as tight as within a molecule, but it is there.
Okay...

errr...

Okay.

I'm not trying to get overly specific with RR.

I'm simply pointing out that my statement was not incorrect... and still isn't.

Did you know that Riverside Redneck said that he enjoyed that his children would jump when he tells them to jump without even saying how high? Sounds like a dictator.
Yup.

RR says "jump"

RR's kids jump.

They don't even ask how high....

Well, everyone, I am going to be out of country for the next week or so and probably out of communication with topix. I hope everyone enjoys discussing whether c is constant!
c is not constant.

Sometimes it takes on the ssss sound and sometimes the k sound. Sometimes it's used a number and sometimes a musical note. I hear it's also used as a static variable in mathematical equations.

So, not only is c not constant, it's quite versatile.

It appears you are correct.

"The speed of light depends on the medium through which the light travels. In empty space, the speed is 186,000 miles per second. It is almost the same in air. In water, it slows down to approximately 140,000 miles per second. In glass, the speed of light is 124,000 miles per second. In other words, the speed of light decreases as the density of the substance through which the light passes increases."

"The velocity of light, which is the same as the velocity of other electromagnetic waves, is considered to be constant, at 186,000 miles per second. If expressed in meters, it is 300,000,000 meters per second."

I hate to tell you how many dozens and dozens of times I installed using those diskettes, and the Fixpacks. You can't be in any rush.
Virtualbox handles it pretty well. I managed to get it in and the fixpacks. You will find a Virtualbox image with guest additions torrent download for Warp 4 with fp6 that should fire up if you have virtualization turned on in the BIOS. Warp 4 is difficult to install on Virtualbox from scratch.
Something to play with.:-)
Years ago I had an old 486dl 66 with a 200 MB drive and 12 MB RAM. Real tight. I managed to strip Warp3 down to the bare essentials and installed Office 4.3, Netscape, Procomm4, and a fax program. Was a necessity at the time.
Funny, I haven't got one single floppy disk laying around anywhere, anymore. Had a couple of big boxes full.
You should see the old Compaq c552 laptop I have. The lid has come loose from the base, it is missing keys from the cat hanging off it, and several dings from falling over the years, plus flat getting used a lot. I have it mounted to some siding to hold up the screen with, you guessed it, duct tape. I use it as a jukebox and backup, with Vista and Ubuntu on it. I love that laptop.
OS/2 Warp was like Linux, in that it shipped with suite of applications. That was nice of 'em.

PM me with a mailing address, and I'll send ya all my diskettes. I'll even coin the postage.

Run Puppy Linux on the laptop. It barks... literally. Might help dissuade the cat from removing the remaining keys from it.

The speed of light is not an absolute. It is based on lab experiments.

Be advised that if the BB happened as said, there was an expansion of the pre-existing material, and then a condensation and creation of matter as we know it. Since we are here, and other thingies are elsewhere, that means the space in between has been transversed by that original material, and then the condensates that form us now. So there are charged fields, pieces of matter, and maybe some beer bottles left along the path, so this "vacuum" of space is not real pure. Plus good old gravity crossing between even distant objects.

The perfect vacuums that c is derived from was done within the EM and gravity signatures of this planet.

Or something like that.

Puppy Linux is awesome. I use it as my recovery boot so I can fix files I screw up.

I know. But outside of a vacuum, light's speed is not constant.
That's all I'm saying.
That's like saying, not every car goes full throttle on the highway.
No duh, but the constant denoted by the "c" notation is the speed limit. It's posted and not optional to exceed by anyone's will to do so.

What causes speed? I'm pretty sure it was ,Graham Yost , who wrote it and Jan de Bont directing as Keanu Reeves, Dennis Hopper, Sandra Bullock starring in it that caused it.

Thanks, but I have the disk images, and don't have a floppy drive. I have no real use for it.

Did you know they still have OS/2 systems that have been running for over a decade without ever being rebooted?

I think it was derived from AIX.

eCommstation is the successor.

If you get wild hairs like I do and dual boot and experiment more than you should, this is a life saver CD. Comes in handy when restoring disk images, too. This and Gparted.

Hey, want to try something neat? Boot up with Puppy and go the console. Type in:

dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sda bs=1M

You may have to substitute hda for sda.

Have fun.:-)

This is what you get into when clicking ads on sites that give away free porn to attract you. Some of them may even have exclusive sex vacations in foreign countries, or dates with foreign born people of your age and sex preference.

Not mentioning any names, but we have a young poster on here that is semi-retired from doing that. Giving away free porn for ad clicks.

The regulars know who it is.

They had a show on that global consciousness thing a year or so ago. Might have been Through the Wormhole.

It was funny when the guy was pointing to the upticks in Internet activity that were supposed to be happening before the events.

They were actually after the events. But he was just kind of waving his finger around and the camera didn't stay on them very long.

I liked that the show had some of the more out there ideas, but they also had some outright quacks, too.
