That must have killed your modem, I remember that instructable, it took a while even on my 5mb connection. I would say look into if your isp has satellite internet you can get. Ours does, and it's apparnetly close to 20mb, but not only the $200 equipment cost, but then it's no good for gaming online because of the latency, sometimes you can, but you get the odd person living in some weird spot and it just doesn't get that great of a signal.

Every once in a while, a copy will turn up in a thrift store. About 3 years back, you'd see ut99 at Wal-Mart, as one of those crappy $9.99 games that they set up just above all the other games. They sometimes still have a copy, floating around in the big bin o' games that they're trying to unload. Heh, the deeper you go in those things, the older the games get. It's pretty fun actually, you can pretend you're a geologist taking arctic core samples. "Diablo? We've gone too deep, retract the drill!" XD

Sorry... Fire was not an invention. It was a discovery. The first invention (machine) would have been the lever.

Not necessarily a machine... The fried egg would have been an invention. An item like fire though, would not qualify. Nor would water. Anything manipulated by man to create something new... BTW: The lever had to come before the fried egg since the lever, in the form of a spatula, is a necessary tool in the production of the fried egg.

I dissagree. The fried egg was invented and then they needed something to flip it. A spatula was born.

Someone once told me that the three greatest inventions by man are: the surfboard, the rubber and the bicycle. And yeah, flying's pretty awesome too.

I would have to say Concrete. Without it modern civilization would have no foundation. No industrial revolution, no Hoover dam, no Las Vegas, no large scale power plants, no potable water or sewage treatment plants, no interstate highways.....the list goes on and on....

So you're saying that everyone on the internet is an invention? It's kinda hard to even singulize internet as one thing because really it isn't is it? It's millions of nodes, co's, and end users.

Dude, why are you anti Scientologist, I'm Lutheran and I believe in god and all, but I also have atheist friends. If you want to do something then talk to some people who don't believe in god. Don't try to force them to believe in god just talk about it, ask them why they don't (don't forget to pray for them, my pastor says the people you should pray for the most are your enemies). Besides doesn't god have a plan for everybody?

Interesting. Can you call language an invention? I'd be more inclined to include language in with communication. And, really, I see communication as part of natural interaction. I mean, would you call interaction an invention?

but language is a sophisticated way of communication, that was thought up by man. Animals can communicate, sure, but they do so on "animal instinct".

We all live and die right? Why does it matter if a handful of people are able to live till 80? I honestly don't understand this shit with living till you're 90 and can't walk. Sad stuff happens in this world, and yet we're trying to prolong it? Sigh..and btw, did you get all those parts gathered up? I'm working again and have some cash to send you.
