Also such cars would not need the regular 3mon/3k mile (or their metric equivalents) service intervals either. All those "A.S.S."s would be near obsolete

See, I told you so! The plot thickens! Definitely a conspiracy if I ever saw one!

It is quite evident that the Agha Waqar School of Engineering Excellence is opening branches internationally, not just in Pakistan.

Seriously, guys, the importance of energy, not just in the 21st century, is such that any breakthrough would be impossible to silence by any conspiracy. It is just that there are no magic solutions to obtaining supplies and to harness them for mankind.

If it sounds too good to be true ........

There are theoretical upper limits for different cycles. Values depend on parameters.

Little appreciated fact.
Everyone has heard of CR. Same cant be of Expansion Ratio.
It will be interesting to watch the development of the GDI.

The Fish carb was a genuine piece of equipment. Had quite a few advantages in a forced induction setup.

But two days before the source code was to be handed over he was mysteriously found dead in his garden. The source code has never been found by the security agencies assigned to try and recover it, but the box was apparently previously opened by Philips without Jan Sloot's permission ... stolen?
Thanks for introducing me to a new stuff to learn!
I went through this site: http://jansloot.telcomsoft.nl/Source...m#.VNRg9fApq9Q

What is written there will only profit media reproduction companies like Philips and Sony (because of lock in to their specific schemes of coding-decoding hardware which will reduce the bits required to describe the arrangement) and firms like Computer Associates. I have not seen any such product come out from any of these companies since 1999.

Call me a skeptic, but it looks like a case of plain and simple cut and dried baloney.

And this site: http://ticc.uvt.nl/~pspronck/sloot.html just confirms my hunch about the absurdity.


For those who would like to know what the crux is:
A story about an alien that lands on Earth. The alien wishes to return home with the knowledge of all books on Earth. Unfortunately, his spaceship is so small that he can only take with him a small stick. So what he does is the following. First, he digitizes each book. This translates each book in one huge, but finite, number. Then he attaches all these numbers to each other, which results in an enormous, but still finite, number. In front of this number he places "0.", turning it into a fraction between zero and one. Setting the length of the stick to one, he makes a small cut in the stick at precisely the fraction. When he returns home, he only needs to measure the place of the cut, to get back the fraction, and thus the number, and thus the codes for all the books.
