Spending years reading all of your threads in this forum I almost think I know you somehow. To make it more interesting. Show us your workspace... dudes.

okay here's mine...

i have to share use of the 24inch displays with a few co-workers.
the guy in the background [nigel] is installing a new nvidia graphics card btw.

I would show mine but it mostly includes Modo and Softimage, and that might be kind of tasteless. :D

"O K, so what's the speed of dark?"
There is no such thing as speed of dark, becasue there is no dark! Dark is the simple absence of light, also, there is no absolute cold but the absence of warmth. Void is the word that explains what you are looking for.

...Hmm... how heavy is 'light' :devil:??

Tricky question huh… ;-)
The answer is: depends on one's perspective.

Light weight can be relative to the gravitational force that pulls the photons (like a black hole),

Like weight of an object on Earth is different on Mars or Moon (due to the different mass / planetary spin velocity).

Also it is not the photon it self that allows us to see but the motion (wave length modulation) of it.
Like sound (modulations of the air) makes our tympani to interpret such air vibrations, light photons can be subject to a similar analogy (with the specific differences - of course).

NOTE: From my point of view... that is!

Oh...I was so impressed by all your awards and then I looked up and saw the movie poster. Is that "Condorman"?

Oh dear.

The ideabox stuff is pretty neat. I recommended that about three or four years ago to a friend who has a double lot but no place to do his music production without the kids running around the house. Lots of cool but impractical stuff over at http://www.designboom.com/contemporary/tiny_houses.html

Ok, then…
I can live with this new darkness theory as well.
The dark matter is not a completely new concept to me but since it stills in debate (along with other new theory’s), I prefer to wait and see where all this is going.
Since the universe is in expansion (the “big-bang” continues eroding the fabric of dark matter border) and to many, the big-bang implosion theory will never happen, instead the universe bubble will stop growing and all energy inevitably will end (stars and all will go off) and all will end like inert matter (ending like ash) frizzed for ever were life (movement, energy) will never happen again.
Well, the good thing is that theory’s still being theory’s and, since true is not a fixed concept but instead a constant evolution of knowledge, well, let’s live with these theory concepts.

Anyway, consider this simple concept for a moment:
If we were cellular organisms living inside a body, we would never be aware, understand or realize the stars in the night sky!
From here, extrapolate to whatever concept you can deal with… all will lead to the same… everything is possible!

Of course there's dark silly... You've never heard of the Dark Sucker Theory?

For years, it has been believed that electric bulbs emit light, but recent information has proved otherwise. Electric bulbs don't emit light; they suck dark. Thus, we call these bulbs Dark Suckers.

The Dark Sucker Theory and the existence of dark suckers prove that dark has mass and is heavier than light.

First, the basis of the Dark Sucker Theory is that electric bulbs suck dark. For example, take the Dark Sucker in the room you are in. There is much less dark right next to it than there is elsewhere. The larger the Dark Sucker, the greater its capacity to suck dark. Dark Suckers in the parking lot have a much greater capacity to suck dark than the ones in this room.

So with all things, Dark Suckers don't last forever. Once they are full of dark, they can no longer suck. This is proven by the dark spot on a full Dark Sucker. The dark which has been absorbed is then transmitted by pylons along to power plants where the machinery uses fossil fuel to destroy it.

A candle is a primitive Dark Sucker. A new candle has a white wick. You can see that after the first use, the wick turns black, representing all the dark that has been sucked into it. If you put a pencil next to the wick of an operating candle, it will turn black. This is because it got in the way of the dark flowing into the candle. One of the disadvantages of these primitive Dark Suckers is their limited range.

There are also portable Dark Suckers. In these, the bulbs can't handle all the dark by themselves and must be aided by a Dark Storage Unit. When the Dark Storage Unit is full, it must be either emptied or replaced before the portable Dark Sucker can operate again.

Dark has mass. When dark goes into a Dark Sucker, friction from the mass generates heat. Thus, it is not wise to touch an operating Dark Sucker. Candles present a special problem as the mass must travel into a solid wick instead of through clear glass. This generates a great amount of heat and therefore it's not wise to touch an operating candle. This is easily proven for lightbulbs too. When you compress a gas, it gets hot, right? So the light bulb gets hot because of all the dark being squished into the wires.

Also, dark is heavier than light. If you were to swim just below the surface of the lake, you would see a lot of light. If you were to slowly swim deeper and deeper, you would notice it getting darker and darker. When you get really deep, you would be in total darkness. This is because the heavier dark sinks to the bottom of the lake and the lighter light floats at the top. The is why it is called light.

Finally, we must prove that dark is faster than light. If you were to stand in a lit room in front of a closed, dark closet, and slowly opened the closet door, you would see the light slowly enter the closet. But since dark is so fast, you would not be able to see the dark leave the closet. So next time you see an electric bulb, remember that it is not a light emitter but a Dark Sucker.

Like I said, I can live with it, thus that does not mean I accept it above all other theorys.
I'm an open mind kind of person, but by nature I do not bend for the side that the wind blows.

There are other valid aproches to explain our observations / measurements:

Quantum field theory states that all fundamental fields, such as the electromagnetic field, must be quantized at each and every point in space.

Canonically, if the field at each point in space is a simple harmonic oscillator, its quantization places a quantum harmonic oscillator at each point. Excitations of the field correspond to the elementary particles of particle physics. Thus, according to the theory, even the vacuum has a vastly complex structure and all calculations of quantum field theory must be made in relation to this model of the vacuum.
The theory considers vacuum to implicitly have the same properties as a particle, such as spin or polarization in the case of light, energy, and so on. According to the theory, most of these properties cancel out on average leaving the vacuum empty in the literal sense of the word.

Vacuum energy can also be thought of in terms of virtual particles (also known as vacuum fluctuations) which are created and destroyed out of the vacuum. These particles are always created out of the vacuum in particle-antiparticle pairs, which shortly annihilate each other and disappear. However, these particles and antiparticles may interact with others before disappearing, a process which can be mapped using Feynman diagrams.

Note that this method of computing vacuum energy is mathematically equivalent to having a quantum harmonic oscillator at each point and, therefore, suffers the same renormalization problems.

Why not use a video card for capturing and digitizing?
You can encode in a format that suits you and burn to DVD.
Yes I know, it seems an endless task.
Set a goal to convert one per day, when you realizing it, you are coming to an end.

Another option, pay to make the conversion en masse without any guarantee of quality (as usual).
