Re: Is this even possible?

1. AVG is a fairly reputable anti virus program that offers a free edition. I suppose some malware could try to look like AVG, but generally I'd assume it's the real deal, as malware that tries to look like something usually tries to look like an obscure system process or something like that. 2. 80...

Is this even possible?

Well there's a few questions I have here, all leading up to one important question. My family has a laptop that's riddled with viruses and my dad swears it's not. In fact, he was so sure that AVG was a virus that when he made me delete it and the computer got worse, not better, he blamed it on havin...

Re: iPod giving me a headache

Mostly your database file got screwed. (The following instructions have not been tried, I only have a touch) Plug it into the Linux box and browse it in nautilus. In ipod_control/itunes (or something like that) there'll be a file called itunesDB, rename it to itunesDB.something and rename the exist...

iPod giving me a headache

Alright, here's the issue. A few weeks ago, I was at a party, and my iPod was plugged into one of those radio docks so we could listen to music. Somebody wanted to put their music on, so they yanked mine out and put theirs in. When I grabbed my iPod a few minutes later, it said that I had no music, ...

Re: Let's ACTUALLY listen to each other's music!

Do you want to listen to the kind of music I like? Its mostly country, 60's-70's era rock, romantic guitar/soft stuff, Brazilian lounge music and some modern grunge (nothing too much) and progressive rock/guitar virtuoso. My Last.fm profile . If you want to share music, you have to comment on someb...

Re: Halo vs Star Wars

Because now you have a diffuse cloud of gas moving against stationary air. When the kinetic energy of a bullet is spread out, it doesn't do much damage. Right, but the damage here is not from kinetic energy, it's from thermal. Vaporized lead would be very harmful, and I'm saying that there'd be at ...

Re: Halo vs Star Wars

Well, seeing as how the bullets would still be heading towards the Jedi in question, think that they'd suffer from bad steam burns. A tiny amount of steam about 100 degrees Celsius has caused pretty bad burns to me before, so I would assume that several instances of steam in the neighbourhood of a ...

Re: Halo vs Star Wars

"Other electromagnetic energy fields and coherent energy are also repelled by lightsabers' arcs. " This is why blaster bolts are deflected. On the other hand, bullets are not energy. Also, you fail to realise the immense speed of such projectiles. I still fail to see how a cloud of rapidl...

Re: Halo vs Star Wars

Regardless, the vaporised bullets would not disappear. Superheated lead vapours would linger in the air rather than being deflected like blaster bolts. Pretty soon the heat would be too intense for a Jedi to concentrate, even if they were managing to block the bullets, which travel much faster than ...

Let's ACTUALLY listen to each other's music!

Typically when a forum has a "share music" thread, it's people posting a few bands to showcase their clear superiority, then leaving. Nobody actually listens to it. So there's going to be one, very simple rule here. For every piece of music you post, you have to comment on another. I don't...

Regarding Quarks

A religious friend of mine recently brought up the topic of Quarks as a method to try and convert me to Christianity. He seems to believe that within Quarks, there's a smaller particle that has no mass. He's basically trying to say that the universe runs on magic. I recall Quarks being referred to a...

Grade 12 math problems

There was an issue where I was placed in the wrong class at first this year and it's only just been rectified. I'm now in my proper Math 30 Pure class. My teacher was kind enough to waive the first few cumulative reviews and tests, but I was just assigned one that is going to be weighted the same as...
