      This is quite funny. It is a bunch of emails sent to Bungie by cheaters who got banned. I especially liked the one where the dude claimed he was killing his opponents "to dust" and also the one where the guy said his account had been stolen and was telling bungie how "the stoler" and not him was the one that cheated. Bungie's reply?

      "Damm stolers... Going around stoling stuff"

      LOL..

      In the event that anyone wonders where I have gone:
      I made an interesting discovery about internet service providers: If you don't pay the bills they send you for awhile then they turn off your internet service.. This is bad. I forgot to pay the bills they were sending for quite some time... Hence my internet service dosnt work anymore and thy cannot hook it back up for 11 days (10 now). This (to put it mildy) sucks. Also My phone is out of commision because it is vonage broadband phone service. which is ok because I only use my cell phone anyway right?! WRONG! I refused to pay my cell phone bill because the service did not work in areas where it was supposed to work (though it did work at my home) so I called them and was getting the usual run around at tech support (culminating with them fling tons of trouble tickets and then saying they were going to call me "monday in the morning" which they never did so I said I wanted to cancel the service and get new service and was not going to pay the bill and wanted them to wave my early termination fee. However they have now shut off my cell phone... when I went to call them in a rage and let them know they would be getting a letter form my lawer I realized myt internet was out. so.. yeah.. this blows. I have a rudementry internet connection by stealing service from the people next door (they have an unsecured router). Also I can use my (until now) little used "softphone" line to make phone calls over their connection form my pc. But no regular phone, no reliable internet (the signal from next door is incredibly weak) and no incomingcalls because no one knows the softphone number... LOLI guess I pretty much dont exist anymore.

      I made a topic on the forums!
      It may noto sound that exciting but this is like the coolest topic ever... I am spending some time detailing my theories about how various technology items from halo might work... I will be adding more as time goes on as will other people (hopefully). I hope the mods will sticky it because it took a lot of work (reletive to how much work a norma thread takes).

      So get over there, read it, and post in it.

      Technology of Halo Thread

    • The Science of Halo

      in Forums > The Science of Halo | Follow this topic

      duncan_stive

      Justification:
      In the theology of halo thread we have been discussing the technology of halo. We (mostly me.. LOL) were recently justifiably repremanded by the threads creator to keep it on topic. Several of us decided to post a new topic or revive an old one since there didn't seem to be an existing thread the fits the bill exactly here is a new one.

      Substance:
      I am a nerd so I have been thinking about the technology depicted in The Halo games and books and have come up with some ideas for how the technology works... I am not trying to prove or diprove one thing or another "works" per say and clearly significant advances would be required for any of this stuff to work however the topic merits discussion because it is interesting and may even be educational.
      I have broken down the main technologies into several catagories. The first post will contain one technology subsiquent post will contain details of others. Only technologies which have no modern equivelent have been listed:

      SHIELDS
      Sheild technology in halo has sereral characteristics that are knowable:

      It is decreased incimentally by being struck by plasma weapons or projectiles.
      It works in a vacum.
      After it is gone it recharges after a short while.

      Shield technology is used in the following applications:

      Protection of ships from weapons fire.
      Protection of Master Chief
      Protection of jackles
      Protection of Elites
      Holding air in against a vacum in shuttle bays
      Tartarus has a form of shilding which may or may not be the same as the other technology.

      Theory of operation
      Some of the technologies listed here will have several potential theories. I only have one theory for how shields work thus only one is listed here.
      My theory is that the shields in Halo are not actually "energy shields" but rather make use of something called "plasma window technology" Plasma windows work by using a powerful elecromagnetic (not MAGNETIC... electromegnetic waves include light, x-rays, gamma rays, heat and radio wave among other things) field to hold a quanity of plamsa gas into a contained area at a high enough density to prevent the passage of air or anything else (9mm bullets for example) though the covered are. Plasma window technology is used in industrial applications such as electron beam wielding.
      Plasma windows operate near 100% effiecency (therefore advances in the technology to make it a feasible option will not come, for the most part, from improments in efficency) and require around 20Kw per square inch covered in order to be able to hold back a hard vacum. Current plasma windows operate at very high tematures making them usuitible for use as personal protection devices. However this is do to the fact that plamsa becomes more viscose at high tempatures making it more effective perticularly at stoping the flow of AIR though the shielded area. Cooler tempatures would likely require even more power to protect a given area.

      Glossery (links go to wikipedia)

      PLASMA

      Taken from wikipedia. The articall contains much more information so you should read it:
      In physics and chemistry, a plasma is typically an ionized gas, and is usually considered to be a distinct phase of matter in contrast to solids, liquids and gases. "Ionized" means that at least one electron has been dissociated from a proportion of the atoms or molecules. The free electric charges make the plasma electrically conductive so that it responds strongly to electromagnetic fields.

      PLASMA WINDOW
      Plasma windows are dicribed in the post but the artical is still worth reading.

      More technologies to come as soon as I have time. Meanwhile please feel free to contribute or ask questions (better yet.. let me know which technology I should talk about next). Also would a mod please sticky this as it could be very interesting and and it took a lot of work (even this first part of it). ThANKS!

      I ran the equation for energy contained in a unit of mass... (e=mc squared... and if you didnt know that you have failed)

      1 kilogram (2.2 US pound) of mass contains 24965.62135495132040392 GIGAWATT hours.... of energy if. If this could be converted with 100% efficentcy to electrical energy it could supply close to 2 MILLION amaricans (who consume the most electricity of any group of people... ) with electricity for a YEAR. Just imagine if we could convert under 300 pounds of water, rocks or even hazardous waste to electricity in one year and supply the entire country... Damm...

      A single glass of water could run the country for a few HOURS.

      I think I just want to end it all... I knew a girl once *AHEM*

      Um.. ah.. yeah..

      Seriously though.. what the crap is up? Did everyone here just drop offf the face of the earth? I have got almost no comments, mesages, etc for days... Wierd.

      Anyway.. I have decieded to do an informal survay. If it is successful I will make it a forum topic and there will be a jornal entry AND a topic.. so sue me
      The survay is:
      Who is the coolest, most kick ass and generally the most awesome REAL-WORLD person you know of?
      You cannot name yourself (seriously you can't.. try it lol)
      You should tell why you picked them and a little about who they are. Or better yet include a link to a wikipedia entry about them. I will post my choice later.

      ... And they own.
      Take there services:
      office live
      xbox live
      local live

      All these things will be merged into one.. instead of an operating system for your home they will have one for your entire life. Everything you do will be connected all the time. you will be able to effortlessly switch from one activity to the next and one indentification will follow you everywhere... I think we are seeing the very start of the connected age information technology has always promised but never delivered...
      Also a little thing called Halo 3. The annoucment could NOT have come at a better time...

      Sony: out new console will cost $600!
      MS: Halo 3 is coming out!

      Um.. yeah.. LOL

      I would place VERY high odds on Microsoft winning the next console war. The wii dosnt have a killer app nor is it seemingly advanced enough to compete (I suspect it will be targeted toward a nich and most of the buyers will have either a ps3 or a 360 already and they will buy a wii for a different sort of expience) and the PS 3is just two dammed expensive and to late to market.

      TCM: The Caboose Mafia. We started it a few monthes ago because we were tired of noobs and assholes invading the Caboose thread. We neg bombed a few of them and they died down. We had some copy cats too. After a few days, not even weeks, days TCM lost steam and it died dow as well. Last night some asshole was just negmodding what ever anyone posted so we got pissed and reinstated TCM.
