Promotional Video for Windows 386

Posted by Kaya Kupferschmidt • Monday, January 29. 2007 • Category: Weird
While all people are talking about Windows Vista, lets look back in time:

The 80s really were a weird time, with a very strange taste for clothing. And a real laughable highlight is the Promotional Video for Windows 386 promoting the wodners of multitasking, with the best part coming at minute 7 after a boring start. Some people even wouldn't be surprised if it turned out to be sleazy porn scene.. It shouldn't be a surprise that you will not find many hits for the directory David Vik on google.

I am so glad that the 80s are over.

20 Questions - The neural-net on the Internet

I just found 20 Questions - The neural-net on the Internet, a very interesting project indeed. The computer will guess an item in your mind by asking less than 20 simple questions. Sounds unrealistic? Try it!

From the website: " 20Q.net is an experiment in artificial intelligence. The program is very simple but its behavior is complex. Everything that it knows and all questions that it asks were entered by people playing this game. 20Q.net is a learning system; the more it is played, the smarter it gets."

Britney Spears Guide to Semiconductor Physics

Posted by Kaya Kupferschmidt • Thursday, January 27. 2005 • Category: Weird
This is one of the most bizarre educational pages I ever saw in the internet. Britney's Guide to Semiconductor Physics is an absolutely serious introduction into semiconductor physics containing some not-so-easy scientific stuff with many formulars and - with some nice pictures of Britney Spears.

The site has been written and designed by Carl Hepburn, a post-graduate student, at the University of Essex, in the UK. So you can be sure that the information inside will be correct - although I never really read it, because I am not a physicist and the pictures simply were too distarcting. ;-)
