Lithuania posting this stuff, consider when the remark only Serbs to cause an uproar. I have a feeling the you'll just go and do it Uruguay, but as far Siam concerned, sometimes Norway is better than the wrong way.
I have a lot of useful blogs bookmarked in separate folders in form of categories like azure, asp.net, c# but i visit those rarely, just have habit of bookmarking whenever i come across a good blog site
I suspect you mean RSS readers. I used to use RSS Bandit, but felt like it was getting sluggish over time, no matter how often I emptied/cleared out everything. I'm happier with Thunderbird (yes, that Thunderbird - although I don't use it for email, which is what it primarily is designed for).
I doubt that anyone who witnessed the Wright Brothers' flight in 1906, seriously expected that we'd land on the moon before the 1960's were out.
Around that time, Einstein indicated the possibility of converting energy to matter. There are, obviously, some huge hurdles to be crossed (especially in terms of power) but we already have multi-peta-watt lasers under development at ELI ...
It might not happen next week but it could be a lot closer than we think.
In very-sub-microscopic amounts, it has been. Transmutation of elements has been going on for a long time.
Caveat: No matter how you slice it, converting one atomic nucleus to another will cost you energy. Even if you start with heavy elements (heavy meaning a greater number of nucleons than Gold), so that there's a net release of energy, it's not likely going to compensate for the activation energy involved in causing the very selection fission.
Coming from the lighter element side, energy is released until you reach Fe56, then it starts to cost you again.
Energy cost money.
Probably cheaper to extract gold from sea water - at least if gold gets expensive enough.
