Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Computer is running slow..........

Ok, so you turn on your computer....by the time it starts, Bill Gates is broke (Which is exactly 4 days after the Earth crashes into the Sun) Aside from a viral infection, there is a simple reason for this. Every time you download some new program or file, it attaches itself to your start up menu. For example, you just installed the latest "Free Movie Viewer". During the install you had to agree to disclaimers....one of these was to "Add to startup menu" or something similar. If you've had your computer for a year, you have a lot of stuff starting....what's that? You're computer's 4 years old? LOL! Tis ok my friend. Here's a simple solution. Rent one of those HUGE electromagnet cranes.....hover it over your hard drive.....wait...NO! Here's what to do! Left click on "Start" on the bottom left hand of your screen ....left click...move your cursor to "RUN"...left click...erase whatever is in the field type "msconfig". omit the quotes... click on the startup tab. Disable all but your anti-virus. This will make your computer start faster.

Are there any real physics in astrology?

yes there is pure physics in astrology as astrology is totally based in calculation of your date month year and time where as date month year and time are calculated in according to day and night which is based on sun light which reflect on earth and when the sunlight reflect on according to that days are calculated and with number of 24 hrs time of clock wise which is again calculated on dally motion of sun and earth rotation and revolution based on

how long dose Saturn take to orbit the sun

Saturn orbits the Sun further away than Earth. And because of this, the orbit of Saturn takes much longer than the orbit of Earth. How much longer? It takes Saturn 29.45 years (or 10,759 days) to orbit the Sun. Astronomers call the length of time an object takes to go around the Sun its orbital period. So the orbital period of Saturn is 29.45 years.

Does the moon have day and night? The same side always faces the earth so does it rotate on its own axis?

Day and night are determined by the sun, not the Earth. It's day when the sun is above the horizon, night when the sun is below the horizon. Even though the same side always faces the Earth, the sun is a different matter.
A lunar day and night is the same as a lunar month.

what are some facts about the sun

Facts about the Sun
One million Earths could fit inside the Sun:

If a hollow Sun was filled up with spherical Earths then around 960,000 would fit inside. On the other hand if these Earths were squished inside with no wasted space then around 1,300,000 would fit inside. The Sun\'s surface area is 11,990 times that of the Earth\'s.

Eventually, the Sun will consume the Earth:

When all the Hydrogen has been burned, the Sun will continue for about 130 million more years, burning Helium, during which time it will expand to the point that it will engulf Mercury and Venus and the Earth. At this stage it will have become a red giant

The Sun will one day be about the size of Earth:

After its red giant phase, the Sun will collapse, retaining its enormous mass, but containing the approximate volume of our planet. When this happens, it will be called a white dwarf.

The Sun contains 99.86% of the mass in the Solar System:

The mass of the Sun is approximately 330,000 times greater than that of Earth. It is almost three quarters Hydrogen, whilst most of the remaining mass is Helium.

The Sun is an almost perfect sphere:

There is only a 10 kilometre difference in its polar diameter compared to its equatorial diameter. Considering the vast expanse of the Sun, this means it is the closest thing to a perfect sphere that has been observed in nature.

Light from the Sun takes eight minutes to reach Earth:

With a mean average distance of 150 million kilometres from Earth and with light travelling at 300,000 kilometres per second, dividing one by the other gives us an approximate time of 500 seconds, or eight minutes and 20 seconds. Although this energy reaches Earth in a few minutes, it will already have taken millions of years to travel from the Sun\'s core to its surface.

The Sun travels at 220 kilometres per second:

The Sun is 24,000-26,000 light years from the galactic centre and it takes the Sun 225-250 million years to complete an orbit of the centre of the Milky Way.

The distance from the Sun to Earth changes throughout the year:

Because the Earth travels on an elliptical orbit around the Sun, the distance between the two bodies varies from 147 to 152 million kilometres. The distance between the Earth and the Sun is called an Astronomical Unit (AU).

The Sun is middle-aged:

At around 4.5 billion years old, the Sun has already burned off about half of its store of Hydrogen. It has enough left to continue to burn Hydrogen for approximately another 5 billion years. The Sun is currently a type of star known as a Yellow Dwarf

The Sun has a very strong magnetic field:

Solar flares occur when magnetic energy is released by the Sun during magnetic storms, which we see as sunspots. In sunspots, the magnetic lines are twisted and they spin, much like a tornado would on Earth.

The temperature inside the Sun can reach 15 million degrees Celsius:

At the Sun\'s core, energy is generated by nuclear fusion, as Hydrogen converts to Helium. Because hot objects generally expand, the Sun would explode like a giant bomb if it weren\'t for its enormous gravitational force.

The Sun generates solar wind:

This is a stream of charged particles, which travels through the Solar System at approximately 450 kilometres per second. Solar wind occurs where the magnetic field of the Sun extends into space instead of following its surface.
