Re: Website is now hidden behind CloudFlare

But either way, I guess we shared some sensitive info that some hackers desire by accident? In fact I still cant imagine, what China may hope to achieve by ddos attack, except temporary disabling a service. But I remember other such an attacks on other forums I used. Maybe it's just "cracker p...

Looks like you just have slow storage drive. Did you run 1.6.1 on the same machine?

Re: Electric Universe Theory

I really didn't want to spend a lot of time arguing this. I was just trying to ask what, in your opinion, would confirm or disconfirm EU. You wrote two contradicting statement, IMHO. To me, convincing are evidence. Evidence are various and numerous, though. There is no single and simple observation...

Re: Electric Universe Theory

Is it possible for the forces of Gravitation and Electrical Magnetism to be complementary to each other in the Electric Model of the Universe, or is Gravity phased out? Existence of gravity is obvious. There are some ideas, though, that gravity may be an expression of electromagnetism or so. But co...

but these are galactic magnetic fields, not a "cosmic" magnetic field. No. Again, You didn't read linked stuff carefully. There are also inter galactix magnetic fields, spaning over several milions of lightyears. Even n articles about galactic stale fields they are refered as "cosmic...

Re: Electric Universe Theory

No "cosmic magnetic field" has been detected, and mainstream science doesn't claim one exists. I really dont know, how to commnt it. Just google this phrase. It really doesnt hurt :wink: I put here some links I like: http://scholarpedia.org/article/Galactic_magnetic_fields#Results_from_Ra...

I meant things that according to this theory should be observed, not explanations of things that already have been observed In fact most of these things wad predicted before their discovery.

Re: Electric Universe Theory

don't really want to argue all the details of your theory. Just to be precise: it's not my theory. If one prediction is that the Solar System is only a few thousand years old, the theory is wrong because this contradicts a great deal of evidence. It's not a prediction but implicarion of "great...

Would you just so happen to support an Infinite Universe as well? I can agree with you on the age, however I do think it had a beginning, just that it's just so very difficult to explain "Unknown age" could means Universe has a beginning, but we know nothing about it :wink: Star formation...

Re: Question about the splash screen

I didn't think a lot about it, but indeed, any GUI element, that cannot be overrided by other windows/elements is very annoying. If splash screen must be in front, I'd prefer separate "start window" rather, if anything.

Re: New Celestia unified runtime database

So, does that mean I can add any names to objects other than stars? Because so far, I can only add names to stars through the starnames.dat.

Re: Ideas for the "Audio Playing" development of Celestia

As somebody can remember, I tried to implement general sound support using OpenAL. It nearly succeeded, but was buggy and then there was repo remaintaining, as Alexell left developement. Then I focused on AstroDB as more important and urgent.
