After reading the Mars trilogy by Kim Stanley Robinson, I think when talking about the space elevator, we should always consider what happens if (when?) it fails. Space fountains seem much more appealing.
Been very happy with https://freedns.afraid.org/ ever since dyndns deleted my free domain because I didn't login to their website once a month.
From world war to cold war to cyber war. Can't say I don't like the trend...
We'll be using quantum computers before the appeals run out.
Will they run linux?
That would only make sense if Einstein kept moving with the same speed for the same amount of time with the time we was "time-traveling". This wouldn't be time traveling. just traveling separately. Also, without gravity, Einstein would just fly out to space
Wow. I live in Greece, and the belief here is that we are very backwards in terms of broadband. Affordable ADSL has been around for about 3 years, but now most people can get a 24mbit connection by a variety of providers, for around 20-22 euros. I suppose this is something around $30, so I guess it's pretty close to your example. I'd thought that, given that broadband was adopted in the US a LOT earlier than Greece, prices over there would be much cheaper.
