99942 Apophis

99942 Apophis (pronounced /əˈpoʊfɪs/, previously known by its provisional designation 2004 MN4) is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern in December 2004 because initial observations indicated a relatively large probability (up to 2.7%) that it would strike the Earth in 2029. Additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029. However there remained a possibility that during the 2029 close encounter with Earth, Apophis would pass through a gravitational keyhole, a precise region in space no more than about 400 meters across, that would set up a future impact on April 13, 2036. This possibility kept the asteroid at Level 1 on the Torino impact hazard scale until August 2006. It broke the record for the highest level on the Torino Scale, being, for only a short time, a level 4, before it was lowered.

Additional observations of the trajectory of Apophis revealed the "keyhole" would likely be missed and on August 5, 2006, Apophis was lowered to a Level 0 on the Torino Scale. As of October 19, 2006, the impact probability for April 13, 2036, was calculated as 1 in 45,000. An additional impact date in 2037 was also identified; the impact probability for that encounter was calculated as 1 in 12.3 million.

In April 2008 news organizations, following a publication by the German tabloid Bild, widely reported that 13 year-old Nico Marquardt from Potsdam, Germany, had recalculated the odds as part of a science competition, and found the risk had been underestimated. His project took into account the possibility that the asteroid would collide with one or more of the estimated 40,000 artificial satellites orbiting Earth, possibly causing a shift in its orbit, and increasing the probability of a collision with Earth on its next fly-by in 2036 to 1 in 450.
Initial news reports claimed that NASA confirmed these results with the ESA. An unnamed German ESA spokesman told The Register on April 16, 2008 "A small boy did do these calculations, but he made a mistake... NASA's figures are correct." On the same day, in press release 08-103, NASA spokesman Dwayne Brown denied that NASA had had any contact with Marquardt; had not changed its risk assessment; and said "...the asteroid will not pass near the main belt of geosynchronous satellites in 2029, and the chance of a collision with a satellite is exceedingly remote." Some scientists have also denied the claims that the effects of a collision with a satellite would be strong enough for such an influence on the trajectory of the asteroid.

Most experts agree that Apophis warrants closer scrutiny, and to that end, in February 2008 the Planetary Society awarded $50,000 in prize money to companies and students who submitted designs for space probes that would put a tracking device on or near the asteroid.

Download From iFolder

RUS: ...И так, рассмотрим все на примерах:
Вы перешли по ссылке яПапки полные надежды скачать вожделенный вами альбом, но там вас подстерегает разочарование в лице вот такой вот надписи:
ENG: Let's demonstrate the procedure of downloading from the iFolder with an example (mind the stuff highlighted by pink).
You follow the iFolder link, starving to download one great album, but there you see this dissapointing notice:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: "что же делать?!?!? видимо не удасться скачать, пойду просить перезалить" - НЕВЕРНО!!!
Файл всего лишь устарел, он не удален, а только и ждет, чтобы его кто-нибудь скачал...читаем внимательно то, что написано ниже:
ENG: You think: "Screw this! Perhaps, I won't be able to download anything! I might as well post a "re-up" message in the topic..." - this is the WRONG approach!!!
The file is not deleted, it's just a bit out of date and can't wait to be downloaded. If you know Russian, read carefully the text below:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: Необходимо всего лишь кликнуть по ссылке "после просмотра рекламы" и вы попадаете на страничку выбора партнеров, которая будет иметь приблизительно след. содержание:
ENG: You only need to click the "после просмотра рекламы" link (that means "after looking through adverts"), then you find yourself on the iFolder's partners' page, which contains something like this:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: Как видите вверху уже прилагается подробная инструкция, как говорится "что и куда нада тыкнуть"...
Переходим по любой из представленных там ссылок и видим сайт партнера, рассматриваем его замечательный дизайн, удивляемся работе content-инженеров, а между тем в правом верхнем углу незаметно бежит время (30 сек.):
ENG: If you know Russian, you've probably already noticed the detailed instruction on top of the page which explains which links you should click...
So, you click any link below and get to a partner's website. There you can adore the design or marvel at content managers' good work while in the top left corner 30 seconds are being counted off:

картинка, оставленная пользователем:

RUS: После истечения, которых вы либо автоматически, либо, если что-то там с япапкой случилось, кликнув по ссылке "нажмите сюда", в общем вы получаете след. страницу, уже более ободряющую и привычную взгляду личера:
ENG: Finally, either automatically, or (in case something's wrong with iFolder) after clicking the "нажмите сюда" link (that means "click here") you are redirected to the page which looks encouraging and familiar for any leecher:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: Остается только ввести код и вуаля:
ENG: To type in the numerical code is the last barrier, and then there you go:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: Что и как делать дальше, думаю уже все представляют...
ENG: What and how to do then should be known by anybody...

RUS: И только, если вы видите, что япапка сообщает вам такое:
ENG: Only in tragic cases when iFolder displays you something like this:

картинка, оставленная пользователем

RUS: Значит действительно пора просить перезаливать, но будьте терпеливы, уважайте аплоудеров, ибо это прежде всего надо вам и они вам ничем не обязаны, выкладывать заново или нет - это личное дело каждого!
ENG: You should assume that the file is deleted and ask for a re-up. Please, be patient and respect uploaders, since it's you who's in need of something and they owe you nothing. Everyone decides by himself whether to reupload or not.

RUS: Прикладывайте усилия, просматривайте хотя бы 2-3 странице назад в топике, ибо если будут найдены посты типа: "Все ссылки сдохли...перелейте вот это, очень нада!" при рабочих ссылках на предыдущей странице, они будут безжалостно удаляться без объяснений...
ENG: And, please, make some efforts to find a working link and look through previous pages, since all the messages like "all links are dead, re-up!" in case there are proper links on the previous page will be deleted straightaway...

RUS: P.S. Несколько слов по поводу нероссийских IP...да мы понимаем прекрасно, что это проблема, но обычно япапка предлагает все-таки скачать иностранцам файл, также после просмотра рекламы, в этом случае последовательность действий точно такая же...правда знаю, что такое бывает не всегда...советую попытаться воспользоваться программами типа HideIP, которые позволяют использовать айпишники других стран...как только более менее приемлемое решение будет найдено, оно будет тут представлено, но пока вот так...
ENG: P.S.: finally several words considering non-Russian IPs. Yes, we realise that, though it's not so easy, still generally iFolder lets foreigners download a file also after looking through adverts. Yes, we know that sometimes this doesn't happen. In this cases it's advised to use software like HideIP which allows you use IPs of other countries... As soon as more convenient solution is found, it'll be stated here; but for the time present that's the way it goes...

its been official that since was blocked by the indonesian government...
due to the publication of fitna movie some sharing sites have been blocked... this includes the most popular video sharing networks youtube, affiliation sites like myspace, and others.

some providers even blocked blogger...i dont know the reason behind the blockage of blogger but i think that some blogger post this movie as a new inside their blog.

i dont know how long will it last but i hope its not long term blocking...and i still think that this is ridiculous. being selfish or just trying to find ways to corrupt peoples money....yeah they and their sins...

as rapidshare is still cant be accessed i wont be able to share some album on my other blog SickTwistedMindz so there will not be a new post until rapidshare is accessible..
