In slide 3 is that an Amiga 4000?
A3000D (16mhz, 2MB Chip, 4MB Fast, SCSI (300+MB), SuperGen Genlock, Kick 3.1)
Back in my day, we didn\'t have water. We only had Oxygen and Hydrogen, and we\'d just have to shove them together.

Sorry think I didn't express myself very well There.

I think those pictures and others like them are amazing.

What I was trying to put across, badly I will admit, is that we are all so insignificant compared to the universe.

Kinda of puts our petty squables into perspective.

I just can`t understand how anyone can claim that in the one image the multitude of stars are at the far edge of the universe. So if thats the far edge whats over the edge. Personally I believe that we live in the perfect computer game, alone and remote from anything. A controlled environment deliberately fixed to one planet with limited resources as in Settlers and our aim is yet to be understood. Or maybe we are searching for the Planet of the Nymphomaniacs and the clue is in Rimmers swimming certificate... [ Red Dwarf ]

Seriously though, does show what being able to see things in a differenet way shows how beautiful space really is. I've gotta go watch Star Trek again now....

Thanks for that.
