Why would someone want to buy or illegally download a book telling how to pass a polygraphic test, while there is one freely available. This books is called "The Lie Behind The Lie Detector", and it is available as a PDF here

I used this book back in the days to pass the polygraph test in the RCMP recruitment process, and I succeeded. I finally refused the job, but got through all the process pretty easily.

Look forward to the actual ..."Detailed Technical Info" on what is going on."

Crashing into things will slow you down, so you lose a lot of energy in the process of slowing down and get back to speed. I thinks it's worth having collision avoidance instead of collision detection (network guy reference...). Didn't RTFA, though IMHO, it is better to crash photons/sound and then detect it to avoid actual crash...

because PC refers to windows viruses

PC means personal computer and makes no reference whatsoever to the operating system running on it.

Wrong. When apple did their "I'm a PC, I'm a Mac" marketing campaing, it was perfectly clear they referred to Windows against OSX. They specifically insisted that a Mac and a PC are different, but the geeks we are know that PCs and Macs are almost the same on their hardware base. So what they referred to was about the OS they run.

AND I AM NOT AN APPLE FANBOY! I have no Mac computers, no iPods, no iPhone

APL hackers do it in the quad.
