MAN SENT TO PRISON WITHOUT A TRIAL FOR INVENTING THIS INCREDIBLE TECHNOLOGY


There are three kind of people in the free energy business:


1. Believers, tying to build free energy machines.
2. Believers, investing in free energy projects.
3. Scammers, collecting money from the believers.

Examining the Amazing Free-Energy Claims of Dennis Lee

In September of 1996, I saw a full-page newspaper ad promising a demonstration of amazing technologies, including one that will make free electricity from the air. On the night of September 23, I and a few other members of the Philadelphia Association for Critical Thinking (PhACT) went to see this “amazing” technology for ourselves.

For about ten years, Lee has claimed that he can produce free energy from ambient heat by connecting his heat pump to a Fischer low-temperature phase-change machine.

...

Lee promised that people paying $10,000 to become dealers would be installing smaller versions of this machine in private homes across America before the end of the year. Since then, he has claimed that two thousand dealers signed up but that there will be a few delays

This videos are clever fakes, here is a recipe how to do it:
Quote:

Ok lets tell you the secret on how to do it. Pull the fan apart pull out the solid metal magnetic ring and throw that away. Glue the magnets on alternating north south facing upwards. Now place the electric coil under the desk. Now put the fan onto of the area you put the electronics ... it will spin. The other side magnet is just distraction and miss direction. The fan is working exactly as it always did you replaced the original solid ring magnet with poles for your small magnets and they are supermagnets. The swirling magnetic field the fan electrics makes makes the supermagnets chase it JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL FAN DID.?

I was talking about the systems programmers, maybe you are talking about Applications, Games or Apps ...

Well some might be done for free, but most 'free' games under Android are not free at all.

Otherwiese wouldn't be so many programs for these operating systems. Especcially the OSx86 scene has tools, drivers and stuff real Mac users never have dreamt of.


Drivers are made by developers paid by the hardware companies, the source code remains closed, if you are using an obscure OS you don't get drivers.

Video codecs are done by developers working for companies who want to sell the tools for cutting, arranging or broadcasting this stuff. Often you can only get the players for free.

And even if you find the label 'Open Source' on a compiler, it might exist only because a CPU company has paid developers for making the 'free tools'.

@o1i:

That's not true. If there is something really good - and unfortunately there is not much - then a lot of people anre pleased and thank the developer or whatever.


It is true, because most of the work is done on the internals of the OS, where people don't even notice them, except when they are leading to a failure.

90% of the OS are about routines and programs that have to work with others, 10% are seen by the user as more colours on the GUI, another function on the GUI or a better user interface for WiFi.

Most users are more concentrated on the Applications or Games, things that are not even touched by the core developers.

Until there is no money to pay the voluntary developers on AROS a full salary, you should be glad for every code they are giving to the AROS users.

AROS users can give these programmers a bounty as a reward for their hard work, that's all.

--

There are differences in payment to AOS4 or MorphOS but I don't believe there is enough money behind this systems for paying some full time developers.

Just do the maths:

1 developer 70000 Euros per year

This means

1000 Users must pay 140 Euro every year for a team of two developers.

There are hardly 1000 Users for AOS4, MorphOS or AROS that would pay this much for their OS every year.

Most of them are in the Amiga retro (hobby) industry.

The few people who are still making accelerators are threaten by this product.

Maybe some people find me negative against the Apollo/Vampire project, this has a lot to do with people spreading false hopes ...

The Vampire/Apollo Project is by far the best hardware project, with the best Amiga compatibility possible.

But they could never beat some of the few actual PPC systems by performance, but even the PPC systems can't compete with the performance of a modern PC running AROS.

But even AROS systems are outperformed by Linux or Windows running on the same hardware, because they have more drivers, proper SMP and a lot of usable software ...

Back to Vampire Apollo:
I might buy a standalone board, the best choice for people who want to have Amiga compatible hardware with some modern features (USB, cheap keyboards, small mother boards, Hires, cheap mass storage system, highres modes, AGA compatibility)

Hopefully the developers get it ready in time and hopefully they don't f*ck up their project by featureism and inhonest promises.

no modern graphic program is able to save images in the classic Amiga IFF ILBM, which seems the only one Magellan understands.


Someone should extend Magellan's Image/Icon subsystem to PNG support.

IIF ILBM made sense on computers with palette oriented planar graphic.

The 32Bit and 64Bit instruction set of actual AMD/Intel CPUs is totally different. It seems like a wonder to me seeing 32Bit Software running on 64Bit Windows or Linux.

AFAIK there are not enough resources for doing the same on AROS.

But what about dual boot systems, could 64Bit AROS handle filesystems and data of a 32Bit AROS?

We keep it because all distributions and almost all applications are for ABIv0.


If someone starts building a distribution using ABIv1 it would be the first step for a switch.

I would suggest these Applications to be ported first:

YAM
OWB
FinalWriter
Lodepaint/Lunapaint
Viewbox


But I would prefer AMD64 over x386
