Stargate Universe: Wormholes in Stars

Submitted by Xenoveritas on Sun, 11/22/2009 - 21:11

In Stargate Universe, they recently attempted to dial home to Earth by using the power of star, creating the wormhole from within the star.

The very next episode, they mentioned that solar flares can cause the wormhole to bounce back and travel through time.

So, wouldn't dialing from within a star contain a somewhat heightened danger of accidental time travel? OK, so solar activity is somewhat unpredictable, and presumably varies from star-to-star, so the risk might be somewhat limited.

The End of an Era: the Close of Geocities

Man, I managed to completely miss this, but Geocities has shut down as of today. I remember when I put my first website up on ... OK, not on Geocities, but on a local ISP. Using hand-written HTML.

But still with a bit too much annoying-graphical flair. (Specifically with the over-patterned backgrounds. Yes, I know I did that here last Christmas, this Christmas will be better. I hope.) So, here it is, my tribute to Geocities closing down.

I mentioned it. That's my tribute. The end.
