DebateScience.com – New, finally well organized SCIENCE FORUM!

You maybe ask, why would someone bother to create a new Science Forum?
Well, answer is simple: There is lot of scientists around the globe using their knowledge, observations and experimentation in some specific field of science every single day… And I also know, that many of them not only wouldn’t mind to share their knowledge and opinions with other scientists, but also with the general public. From hundreds of emails I have received within last couple of months (while administering another popular Science Forum), I can see the main problem: [Read more…]

Almost everyone knows, that in the course of the 20th century, mankind experienced more than just two devastating wars. There were many of them.

Why it takes 30 minutes to delete 0 bytes? (Aka ‘fun with Windows and WinRar’)

First lets say, that I really have nothing against Windows. I like this system. I used some other operating systems and eventually decided to use Windows as my workstation. It somehow works for me. There are better OS for servers and better for graphics maybe, but I still like Windows. Anyhow, this couldn’t stop me from making little fun of Microsoft and WinRar. Well, I’ve heard that apparently NTFS partition has some limits in Ms Windows, where maximum number of files and subfolders within a single folder is something like 65,534. I’ve got onto a journey to test it out :) [Read more…]

Google.com Main Page = PageRank 0 ?!?

As most of you know, Google’s PageRank is a measure of the importance of the page. It’s a family of algorithms for assigning numerical weightings to hyperlinked documents (or web pages) indexed by a search engine. Its properties are much discussed by search engine optimization (SEO) experts. The PageRank system is used by Google to help determine a page’s relevance or importance. It was developed by Google’s founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin while at Stanford University in 1998. [Read more…]

My Online Hard Drive Idea!

hdds.gif It just came to me that it shouldn’t very hard to write an application, which would create pretty large online hard drive. Ok, ok, I know this is pretty far fetched and I didn’t spent much time pondering this question, but here is the idea in it’s most simplest form: Almost every person knows someone who has a website…, this in many cases means that person got an online account with a web space provider, where most of the provided space will simply never get used. There is also many of us, who are running their own servers and there is tons of unused space… [Read more…]

Zaciatok sci-fi poviedky :)

Par rokov dozadu (1998-99) som sa prudko zanudil a zbuchal za 10 minut zaciatok poviedky, ktorej sa nikdy nedostalo pokracovanie. Nahodou som to nasiel nedavno na svojom harddrive, tak si vravim, nech to na tomto blogu nestoji. Prispieviam v poslednej dobe len v anglictine, tak takto sa Slovenskej casti tohoto blogu dostane aspon trosku pozornosti.

Chaos in Toronto – Subway stations shut, buses and streetcars parked in garages!

They also mentioned that on one particular line where normally there would be 1,300 buses, only seven buses were operating before 8 a.m. The Ontario Labour Board has quickly issued a ‘cease and desist’ order to all subway… [Read more…]
