    Physics Napster

    Newtonian Archive http://dibinst.mit.edu/BURNDY/Collections/Babson/BabsonContents.htm Collection of some good old newtonian books. They're ahh... very old. I thought some might like to have these early editions for their collection. Not recommended as study materials. :biggrin:

    Last Emperor of China

    I've been in Beijing for six months and I haven't set my foot into Forbidden city. People are amazed that I wasn't interested in a place they considered a big tourist attraction. But I'm planning to pay a visit sometime. I came pass the palace occasionally and I'm confuse with the Tian-an...

    Curious about DNA

    Thanks for answering. So, the body can accept a new part once the immune system is weakened. Say, after the transplant, we take a cell sample of a new organ and read its DNA, does the stracture(sequence) differ from your body's DNA sequence? or does it somehow re-sequence the DNA stracture to...

    Curious about DNA

    So,... this strands of DNA is what makes everyone of us unique and they're in every organs, tissues, blood...etc right? When there is an organ transplant, the part(or organ) that you're accepting has its own genetic stature so doesn't the body reject the new part? Once you acquired a new...

    Can anyone explain?

    I noticed that out of 256Mb of RAM, only 70Mb are avaliable as free memory. One reason is that windows XP takes alot of memory to run and the other is that my video adaptor uses about 60Mb of my memory. The solution (for me) might be to upgrade RAM or to run as little application as possible...

    What is Mathematics?

    I was unlucky enough to have been taught in a system that brings nightmare (oh yes the real ones). My first school was in Geneva and when I was about 7 or 8, I went back to Burma. Then comes the shock: everything turned upside down from the moment I first entered the school. I hated school...

    Thanks. That should explain the slowdown.

    It's 3Dstudiomax. It did fine on my older 450MHz, 128 RAM computer. To my knowledge the difference comes when rendering the scene so normally slower computers should be able to handle it too. But I don't expect much on that program anyway. And the games I mentioned, they're not slowing at...

    Greg, I don't quite get it. The graphic bar to the left shows that for 3D GraphicMark, possible out comes are minimum of 0 and maximum of 200.

    Can anyone explain?

    I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software problem. My notebook doesn't seem to do work as it should. E.g. I couldn't run 3D modeling program and as soon as I install it the computer slows down. And when running games like typing of the dead and chess master, the computer hangs...
