around the Galaxy
As I come across resources I plan to add useful links to this
site. Some of the links will relate to the theories here and
others, well, they'll just be general stuff or links to help
me keep my job... :-)
Theories Forum - As the title suggests, this ones run
on a friends machine and allows people to openly discuss to
all sorts of things relating to the weirdest and wackiest
theories around. Personally I really like the Googlebot
in the future thread.
If you understand all the mad theories and want something
with a little more complication, why not try these sites?
official string theory site - A theory for tying your
brain up in knots! ;)
From what I can figure, string theory is about "strings"
which are around 10-33 Planck's long and without
them we're all in deep trouble. Even more trouble than someone
who tries to make themselves look intellegent to a prospective
girlfriend by quoting anything from this site! :)
One Planck seems to be around millionth of a billionth of
a billionth of a billionth of a centimeter in case you're
wondering or for anyone working with "old" measurements,
a bit smaller than 3/8 of an inch!
Hawkin's Web site - From the guy who wrote A Brief History
of Time comes a web site that actually makes some sense. OK,
not all of it requires a degree in advanced maths and quantium
physics at least, especially the bit under the public lectures.
So if you ever wanted to know what chaos theory was or why
Trev's theory about black holes swallowing the universe might
have a slight glitch, then see this site.
If you've ever wanted a fair bit of proof that we did indeed
land on the moon in 1969, checkout the NASA page about the
Laser Ranging Retroreflector Array".
I thought a few forums deserved a mention here because many
of them have been the nurseries for the mad theories and provide
useful information on various subjects. Now, can you guess
which sites I work for... ;-)
Business Forum - If you fancy putting your sensible head
on, hit the business forum and discuss your next multi-billion
dollar idea which just requires the .com boom to emerge from
hiding (about as much chance as anyone taking this site seriously).
Also has a connected business
search engine & directory.
Travel Forum - If you fancy travelling somewhere outside
the mind of Trev, why not hitch a ride to exotic lands in
this travel forum. Also has a related travel
search engine & directory.
Search Engine Forums - If you're trying to figure out
anything relating to search engines, head to this site. It
probably has the foremost experts in the field.
(Bytech Canada) - A great forum based in Canada with very
friendly people, most of whom are relatively normal but also
know quite a few things about web sites and such. :)
Shed Computer Forum - A small but growing forum with a
lot of knowledgeable computer experts (also run by the same
person as the Mad Theories forum above).
- Mainly a plug for the ISP I use here in the UK. I'd guess
it's main claim to fame is that it's based in the Shetland
Isles way off the top of Scotland and has a very friendly
group of people. Also connected with the Zetmeet
(aka a gathering of people who try not to talk about computers
all night, but end up talking about computers in the end...).
PS: I deny all knowledge of any photos of "Trev Hartley"
on any of the pages! :)
movie of star clusters - a truely spectacular display
of some of the most magnificant sights in the Universe. The
site gives a 2 minute flash movie showing pictures taken from
the Hubble Telescope and works even better if you have sound.
photo tour - Take a bike trip with Elena through to the
area around the Chernobyl nuclear plant that went bang in
such spectacular and devastating style back in 1986. She takes
us from the Big Egg (see site) up to the nuclear plant itself
and on to whats now called Ghost town where most of the workers
lived and where you can still see the washing hanging up 18
Gymnastics - I think the name says it all although the
phrase "don't try this at home" would seem suitable
if a little contradictory. If you're bored and fancy a bit
of exercise then why not try gymnastics around your house?
Rubbish - Every so often you come across a site thats
pure and total rubbish (or garbage to our American friends).
Well this site is the absolute best I've seen....the guy picks
up, boxes then sells New York City garbage and sells it for
about $100 a time so you can have your own unique piece of
the big apple (or someone elses apple in this case).
Heroines Handbag - The site of someone I met on the business
forums. She makes custom individually styled handbags to order
and is trying to setup in business on her own, so I thought
I'd give her a helping hand with the promo. Very nice lass
- originally from NYC, but now living in England.
for Laura - A slight change from what you normally get
here, but I just came across this site today. It was setup
as a sort of virtual "get well soon" card site if
you like for a talented actress called Laura Sadler who appeared
on the UK BBC TV series Grange
Hill and Holby
City after a serious accident from which she died a few
days later. 3900 candles posted at the time of writing, nearly
2 years after the accident.
