just to start a bit of discussion was created by stepryan

hello all,
just to start a discussion in here i think all cosmologists are in some way related to pythagoras for 3 reasons:-

1) they tend in to live in a theoretical world where everything is perfect.
2) they abandon ship faster than rats when their pet theory is shot to pieces.
3) they can't stand trainspotters (the rest of us) as the physical world of observation tends to interfere with their perfect pet theory (apologoies to david in advance ;) ).

I'll have you know that I have the greatest respect for trainspotters. Mike Murphy and I are just back from a tour of the Canadian Rockies where we happily trundled around for a week taking photographs of trains...

And I'll also have you know that this cosmologist was able to split the double in Lyra...in broad daylight, at 11 in the morning. Now that's what I call observing - no standing out in the freezing cold waiting for various appendages to drop off.

And all my pet theories are astronomer-proof.

:-D

david,
yes i can also split the double in lyra during the day, it is amazing what you can do with a copy of nortons and a magnifying glass ;).

Cosmologists ... aren't they the guys who come up with whacky theories that 'normal' people assume astronomers can understand and always leads to the alpha male at a party asking you to explain planck time 'cos you've just told everyone that your hobby is astronomy? They're the reason why astronomers can't score!!!

What is HTTP proxy server?
HTTP proxy server is a proxy allowing to work on the Internet with HTTP and (not always) FTP protocols. It can carry out caching of information downloaded from the Internet.Now HTTP proxy servers are the most widespread. Their support (ability to use them) is included into many programs: browsers, download managers etc. However, their support is not realized at a level of an operating system ? in order to use them, you should configure all programs, which should use proxies, in an appropriate way. HTTP proxy servers have several anonymity levels.

Now a days there are transparent proxy servers that work without you needing to re-configure your computer in any way. I am making this post from behind such a proxy server!
