Turn an Old Computer into an XBMC Home Theater PC

Turn an Old Computer into an XBMC Home Theater PC
18th September 2011

XBMC (click for download and info) ismy favorite media center software. It’s free and it’s better than it’s paid alternatives thanks to a slick, customizable interface that plays all sorts of media from the majority of networked and local destinations. It can pull content from the web, tell you the weather, double as a retro video game console, and much more. What’s really great is that it can run on a super cheap, underpowered nettop. That may also mean your old computer is entirely adequate for the job. Either way, you’ll be up and running a home theater system that’s ahead of its time before you know it.

Yes They Did Land On The Moon
7th September 2011

Since the moon landings in the late 60’s and early 70’s, there has been constant stories from conspiracy nuts about how all the moon landings were faked and actually filmed in a Studio in Area 51 in Nevada. If they were faked then how come the USSR didn’t say anything? How can you keep a secret with hundreds of thousands of people working in NASA and companies associated with the program at the time? Well you don’t, and the USSR didn’t say anything as they knew it was true.

A week ago NASA released new images of the landing sites which show footprints, tracks from the buggy, equipment and even the Lunar lander stage that was left on each site.

The image made available by NASA shows paths left by walking astronauts, single lines, and lunar buggy tracks, parallel lines, from the 1972 U.S. Apollo 17 moon mission. NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter made this and other photographs of lunar landing sites from 13 to 15 miles above the moon’s surface.

The article and photos can be read here http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/LRO/news/apollo-sites.html

These photos seen here (click on them to make them larger) show conclusive proof that we were on the moon. Maybe now the conspiracy nuts will shut up.
