Leaked paper suggests EM Drive tested by NASA actually works

Zmodem

then if you take the spec's for the US Navy railgun and use it as a basic scale model and times everything by 100,000, you would have 100 tons going at 256 million MPH

still can use ring magnets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W2IKoxt16Ro

and real pulse propulsion like a maglev train putting both magnets inside a normal thruster, and blast off like a railgun with 1000KW's and 400 ton craft

GMX Mail Chopped (unless you read their adverts)

Zmodem

use mail.com, its GMX parent company and uses the same interface, you can use it with adverts or pay for them to be removed and get some extra storage space and alias accounts

Looking for another smartphone recommendation

Zmodem

xperia e5 or xperia m5, if anything else fails, you can grab a xperia m4 for €60 on ebay, but the m4 will probably on have 8GB of space 2 or 3 can be used, the best option would be a xperia z3 for €140 on ebay

UK minister promises science budget won't be messed with after Brexit

Zmodem

leaving the EU won't affect any science research, britain leads the world in drugs, never done much for space science, and you would expect scientists to earn more then £30,000 a year which immigrants need for long term stay

all britain can do is give BAE Systems some of the £15bn eco money from the EU payments and redesign skylon to have EM pulse propulsion which can get to the edge of the solar system in 33 hours

Digital minister Matt Hancock promises 'full fibre' eating plan for Blighty

Zmodem

ain't all bad, £12 a month you can have unlimited 8MB/s on EE and tethering your andriod phone via usb or bluetooth/wifi, doom 2016 is still playable most of the day

if you live in crappy bath and in a crappy council block estate you can have 80MB/s on BT if your lame enough to pay them direct

ExoMars update: Schiaparelli probe's parachute malfunctioned

Re: "should have tested"

they could have shot it off the bottom of a plane, using some gas, like an ejector seat, 1 fail in a 100 and its time to redesign

Hard-up Brits 'should get subsidy for 10Mbps'

Zmodem

should be doing something about the line rental, broadband is only £10, line rental is £17.99, line rental should be £10 too is you don't need a phone

if you don't have a phone you should'nt have to pay for satellite bandwidth and maintenance, the internet goes through ocean fiber

Data-thirsty mobile owners burn through 5GB a month

Zmodem

i burned 20gb or more last month on EE, but it downloads at 5-700kbs, so a 10gb evil within patch seemed fair

it probably gave them a new advert for being stable too

BT and EE, O2 and Three: Are we in for a year of Euro telco mega-mergers?

Zmodem

Re: Talk about special pleading...bought Huawei exchange kit which really pissed off HMG

its more likely all in the small print when the government sold the network to BT in the 80s, at worst the government could probably just revoke the sell at anytime, all of the government war lines that are not connected to any other network still need to be operational

Re: Rails

amps ^ volts are normally in the spec`s for the rail, which will give you the total watts, so 53 * 12 = 632 watts

0

Zmodem

depends if the PSU is single rail and a platinum or gold rated PSU, a bronze PSU probably won`t do the job, your only getting 400watts -the 20% for efficiency, so as soon as your heat sink and card needs more power, + any other system fan you have plugged into the board, the box will shutdown

How to build a real lightsabre

use some magic to make electric go in a straight line with a prism or something

find a real stupid hz and you can probably control the laser length with atmosphere pressure sensor

Rounded corners on Android phones cost Samsung $548m: It will pay up to Apple after all

Re: The difference between Apple and Samsung

and for 30 years apple did nothing, they would probably be bankrupt if it was for the ipod, the ipod is nothing special

Zmodem

it would be easier if samsung quit the USA and stopped selling all products in the USA, if someone is tarded enough to patent round corners in the first place

the USA can`t make nothing, they just have microsoft, the rest of the economy is all internal

Alert after Intel Skylake chips, mobo sockets 'warp under coolers'

Zmodem

Re: why would you have a massive 50lb heatsink

if you had a single heat sink that was 24kg, the rest of the PC would be atleast 6kg which would put it over the health & safety limit of 25kg for men, and you would have you get a trolly if you don`t do weights and can lift 25kg in 1 hand

office workers are soft and get footrest etc all paid for under health & safety in the office level 1

Re: why would you have a massive 50lb heatsink

if you drop your box you would be expecting everything to be broke, so a bent socket means nothing, most cases would be broke, and half of your PC would fall out, you have to buy a rack mount case or spend £200 on a sturdy ATX

if a socket could handle 24kg, the motherboard would need case mounts on all 4 corners first

Zmodem

it depends on where you buy CPU`s too, PC World etc will have retail CPU`s which come with heatsinks, overclocking shops will have OEM CPU`s which don`t come with heatsinks

having retail CPU`s in a overclocking shop would just be pointless and a waste of alloy

why would you have a massive 50lb heatsink, when a corsair hydro is £30 more

anyone with intelligence would`nt trust something that weigh`s 24Kg ontop of a CPU

Re: HMRC - struggling to leave the dark ages

they should sort out housing benefit too, if you have a part time job, they keep taking your wages away making you pay more and more rent so you never more then £40 a month better off then you are when your on job seekers allowance, but if your middleclass and have a full time job, you can have £10,000 savings, tax credits and housing benefit

Google engineer names and shames dodgy USB Type-C cable makers

Zmodem

3A on a usb 2.0 device would just be like a constant spike, and not a massive concern anyway, only apple would come with only usb 3.0 type c and no other usb ports

0

Zmodem

most devices have capacitors in, so they are globally usable, more so if they are mains powered, and run on all countries power AC/DC 110-240v, then they have to comply with EU`s ErP which is more strict then USA energy star rating power usage thing

so production lines take the best out of both ErP and engery star, and make a single globally usable production line to keep the cost down

Cash injection fuels SABRE spaceplane engine

Zmodem

meh,, its would be cheaper and alot faster to to make electro magnetic pulse propulstion drive, and have a 1Mw perpetual generator on, so you can super charge your thrusters in space and accelerate at near light speed, and have a single pulse every 100 light years

shoot off like 2 rubbish magnets on earth retracting when you push them up to one another and you let go of 1 of them

all the hardware has already been made, except a 1Mw generator, all the sensors and computer software are already in use on maglev trains

it can make false eyes pop out as well https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1B-mQlQGFk

you just need a ultra low frequency, and a mid range tone to move objects, having 20,000 watts and 20hz helps, domestic drivers only go down to 20hz, some go to 6hz but they cost £8000
