If you are comfortable with CSS and HTML, why not get Microsoft Web Designer Express and learn ASP.net and C# with it. You can build easily and quickly. I think what you are planning will be informative about autism and perhaps educate people. Thanks! What is ASP.net and C# (OOP language isn't it?)...

Down to business - windows XP doesn't mean it's a weak computer - the processor, RAM, video card and hard drive will (especially if the drive is clogged full. If you have no idea what your PC's specs are, hit the START button, choose RUN and type "DXDIAG" Let me know what processor you have, how mu...

What if someone who has an extraordinary talent to look at the winning results from the lottery and see a pattern in the randomness of numbers, and, be able to see the most probable next result. There is no pattern in randomness. That's why it's random. But to continue with your example of the lott...

Exactly what I thought when I opened this thread.

For symmetry reasons, I feel that a few atheists & scientists should be promoted to cardinal (or the equivalent in other branches of myth-craft).

the new X-Com. Me too, but then the *other* new X-Com... Xenonauts (http://www.xenonauts.com/) It's an indie game developer that is remaking X-Com while trying to stay true to the original game mechanics. The UI and graphics have been brought up to modern standards and there are plenty of small add...

Could there be such a thing as a very different kind of planet that has such extreme atmospheric conditions and temperatures that these higher numbered elements would actually be stable there? The particle is never stable, that is a property of the element and not its environment. The best you coul...

PHP, MySQL, etc allow the page to be scripted from the server side, i.e. dynamic manipulation before it even gets downloaded by the browser. This is the next logical step after mastering JS on the client side. And what is the next step after learning PHP/MySQL? PHP and MySQL are on the serverside o...

The description of the screen problem sounds like a hardware issue, possibly something with the cable. The problem of this diagnosis is that it doesn't explain why typing makes it go away.

I think a video of what happens would be extremely helpful.

While Euroskepticism certainly isn't dead in the Netherlands, it seems that it lacks broad appeal to the electorate of the left and the right. This isn't quite true - Wilders made some bad tactical errors and had a pretty faltering campaign from what I heard. I think he annoyed a lot of people as w...

Well, this thread is surely overdramatizing the matter. First of all, to give people a sense of direction: compared to the US, the Dutch political spectrum (like most of Western Europe) is shifted somewhat towards the left. Traditionally, there have been 3 major parties that score very high in the e...

I have my own domainname + webserver. The webserver is a custom-built NAS machine, it has 6 TB of storage and runs a variety of services that are useful for my wife or me. It runs Linux with Apache as a webserver. Apache is also available for Windows, and I would prefer it over IIS, since it's used ...

And if there's an interest, most Dutch people will be more than happy to ship the author, Wilders, to the UK as well. For free!

There's a Tesla museum in Belgrade, Serbia. I visited it as part of an excursion during a physics conference. It was pretty neat.

But yeah, some more recognition for Tesla would be nice. Edison was a clumsy hobbyist compared to Tesla.

Interestingly enough, there currently is a bit of debate in the Netherlands regarding gay marriage. The point of conflict is not about gay couples getting married, but about marriage administrators refusing to marry gay couples because of religious objections. While originally this was tolerated as...

France has a better system: Marriage is a civil affair. Those who are religious can also have a church wedding / blessing; but the important, mandatory (legal) part is the civil joining. The system works well, religious folks usually arrange for a church wedding / blessing to follow the civil marri...
