OH MY GOD, AMAZING DISCOVERY: Television signals travel through air from cable ?!?!?!

  1. Hello,

    While I was inspecting the cables I noticed some speakerset cables where
    lieing on top of the WHITE television cable that carries the television

    I decided to pull the white cable while the television was ON.

    Then I moved the black soundspeaker cables under the white cable.

    Then I re-plugged in the WHITE CABLE...


    I was like WHAT THE **** ?

    I could have sworn it wasn't plugged in yet, or maybe just reaaally lighty.

    So I decided to unplug it again and then simply hold the cable in the air ?!

    Like 1 centimeter before the "hole".


    The television signal simply JUMPS ACROSS 1 CENTIMETER OF AIR !

    Then I looked over the television and the television vision/visual was gray
    like with weak visual signal... but the audio signal was crystal clear ?!

    AMAZING !!!!



    Could this be the source of the interference ? Just pure speculation.. since
    when the first booms occured... the television was off ?!

    Television signals have been known to jump through MILES OF AIR!


  3. System just frooze again, this time speakerset was off.

    I checked security log.

    There is an entry for 22-8-2008.

    This can't be it's still 14 september 2007.

    I did not change the date to this date me thinks.

    Here is a copy:

    Event Type: Success Audit
    Event Source: SECURITY

    Windows is shutting down. All logon sessions will be terminated by this

    Looks like a computer from @home network might have hacked my PC.

    Or maybe it was randomly generated.

    Very strange indeed.

    I shall investigate this further tomorrow.

  4. Hello,

    It's a valid computer name for my ISP stuff.

    Maybe I did change date sometime to test something who knows.

    I am starting to believe it might be a denial of service attack.

    Maybe somebody found a way to crash Windows XP Pro x64 editions.

    Might even be a new worm... it has happened every few minutes which could
    indicate a worm needing time to spread itself (searching) or simply a human
    being wanting to crash it every few minutes.

  5. You seem to be suffering under the illusion that anybody here gives a shit.

    Just bugger off or shut up, will you?
  6. You seem to be under the impression you speak for all LOL.

    Can you read other people's minds lol ?

    Not only that, but television signals have been known to jump FASTER
    in the VACUUM of SPACE!

    An IT friend of mine mentioned in passing that Headquarters is
    planning on upgrading the fiber optic network.

    "Upgrade it to what?" I asked.

    He turned around to his co-worker. "To what?" He didn't know.

    I told my friend, "Well, you know, light travels faster in a vacuum
    than it does through glass. Maybe you can take a metal pipe from
    to Headquarters, suck all the air out of it, and put a laser on either
    end? You could DOUBLE your NETWORK SPEED!"

    They didn't go for it, unfortunately.

    Thanks for the laughs

    Seriously, before fiber optics became practical, in the 1960's, Bell
    Labs was experimenting with long-distance communications with light
    running through pipes. The idea was to force thermal gradients in the
    gas inside a pipe to provide a subtle refocussing effect that would
    confine the light, sort of like a graded-index fiber.

    Fiber optics got serious around 1970, when Corning pulled the first
    fibers with usable attenuation levels.

    Several people make free-space optical data links, usable between
    buildings and such.

    Thanks a bunch!

    Speed of light in air at STP is 99.97% of the speed of light in a
    vacuum. Close enough...

    Unfortunately, we'd need a huge tower to see headquarters (about 10
    miles away). Any winds, and we'd get data transmission errors...

  11. Hello,

    Today it occured to me the new AN832-SLI motherboard might be showing the
    same symptoms as the previous same kind of motherboard that died.

    Today I kept my computer running without the internet connected and it ran
    just fine.

    I can remember that with the old motherboard it showed the same symptoms...
    after plugging in the internet it would freeze.

    I am not 100% sure the same symptons are now being displayed... but it's
    starting to seem like it.

    I have now connected the internet again to post this message.

    Later I will disconnect it to work on some offline website and later today I
    will go online again to see what happens.

    Another explanation might be a denial of service attack.

    So I will keep it short before PC freezes again.

    Boot it from a Knoppix Linux CD or DVD, and see if you still have the
    same problems.

    Oh, he does.

  14. Probably cause is identified.

    Bad marvel miniport driver 8.27.

    After removing this driver, which was probably installed by nvidia chipset
    drivers after I installed the new motherboard, windows detected the ethernet
    port and installed an old driver which was tested with UDP Speed Test 2 and
    does seem to work ok !

    So far so good !

    Fingers crossed.

    Meanwhile I have switched to nvidia's network controller, indicated as
    ethernet port 8 the bottom port for internet access.

    Just in case ! ;)

  15. Good idea, I had the same idea, I had an old Knoppix 3.1 version, but it
    doesn't have DHCP and doesn't work ?

    I finally decided to test the network controllers with my UDP Speed Test 2
    tool and I discovered the marvel miniport driver 8.27 was bad and crashed.

    I have a minidump of it too.

    So I switch to other ethernet port and so far so good ! ;)

    Windows installed an old driver which I tested and seems working ok too.

    Maybe I should burn a new knoppix version CD... but it must have DHCP...

    Then again... I am kinda glad Knoppex CD was useless... because it forced to
    me to think about alternatives and force me to discover and solve the
    problem which I think I did for now :)

    At least he might be able to take pictures of an ass that's not his

    And why do people like this keep typing LOL when they never say
    anything funny?

    They're seeing the reflection of the "clown"/"dufus"/"ass" - in the
    monitor - as they type..........

  18. Liar.
  19. He is far too stupid to grasp what a knoppix diagnostic test is.

    Look, dude. This idiot is now claiming his NEW MOBO is acting just
    like his old MOBO.

    I think the dope is causing ESD events on his gear, and is too damned
    stupid to understand that HE is the root cause of ALL of his problems.
