  1. We think of the classical geniuses as Greeks but Archimedes was Italian from the kingdom of Sicily.More closely related to the Carthage and Roman politicians than Greek. A lot of them were Egyptian or Easterners.My belief is that when the great citadels fell to Babylon, all the learning of the world combined to bring about the Classical Age. The Nebuchad dynasty combined all the great thinkers into colleges and Daniel became the chief of it all, at one time. He even commanded respect in the Persian Empire and it is really from there Arabic thought spread. It was their engineering ideas and that of the Jews that brought about the ideas of Kopernik.And it was Kopernic who inspired Keppler and Keppler who gave birth to Newton. These were the giants upon whose shoulders he stood. Some even say Archimedes discovered a form of calculus for curved geometry. Newton's "Laws" were derived from Galileo; who did all the work on motion and which by Newton's time was widely understood.Probably the ancients knew it too. It's hard to believe they didn't. It is all about putting levers into motion to rearrange energy.Once you realise that, calculating the proportions involved is mere mathematics. Simple addition and subtraction. Nothing more complex than multiplication and division.

    Wasn't Archimedes who said 'Give me a place to stand on and I will move the world.'

    No he said Give me a lever long enough and a place to stand and I will move the world. He realised the earth was round/spherical.He was very clever. He even said it in Greek and they never had text books or Google translate in those days too, neither.

  3. That's too much to my brain. English is clear enough but the topic is beyond what I can get. Self pity! 😦

  4. This thread started out as a tst for posting images. Opera won't allow us to post images directly into comments so you have to pen a New Post to do so.I then copied the code for the images and postd them in the ordere |I wanted on another person's thread (Teresa's Blog) then I forgot all about it.When I was closing down, I saw I had a post to send and sent it instead of checking what it was and deleting.Now it's too late and I still can't think of a title for it. And typically the content got off topic immediately -not that it had a topic in the first place.

    Hi mechaa, hiya Michael.You could have a private albums as well, couldn't you?Do create one for testing… Just you have to choice that PRIVATE option when you are creating it only..Nobody will be able to see your pictures but you only. Et voilà, a sort of repository only for you, huh?

    Nóu, nú, nu… You only have to download to your album, the picture you want to post and to use the available link over there.Don't you know it? You have an album and just, downloading picture there and copying that big photo or small photo link. Easy!

    I was not bothered about anyone seeing it.It's just that it is a nuisance having to open a completely different post to post a picture on a comment thread.I bet nobody uses Opera's Notes. But if the Notes system offered bulletin board facilities to help post code, links and pictures it would be a world beater browser -for a while.As for this thread I wopuld have adopted it by now if it hadn't gone all ove the place from the start so I can't think of a title.It calls itself image on my notifications. That's as stupid as any I could come up with.
