Your very close Golden and I hate to take the wind out of the sails but I think we forget we are in an elliptical orbit around the sun and the tilt of the earth varies in relation to the sun I am not sure how often that is though - in essence it wobbles.
So the time taken for light from the sun to reach us actually varies from day to day but I suppose we can work on the average as a guide

This computer simulation takes you inside a black hole



Quote:
Black holes are as complicated an entity as anything currently being studied in the far reaches of space. Although we’re a long way off from fully understanding black holes, astronomers are hard at work, trying to unravel the mysteries of the phenomenon.

A recent study by NASA, Johns Hopkins University and the Rochester Institute of Technology has brought us one step closer to the truth. This study “trace[d] the complex motions, particle interactions and turbulent magnetic fields in billion-degree gas on the threshold of a black hole.” With the results of the study, the team has been able to reproduce a range of X-ray features with the assistance of a simulation on the Ranger supercomputer.

That article has a link saying the web was invented in 1989. I thought it was the US military years before with ARPAnet. History of the Internet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Assuming one considers "web" and "intenet" one in the same entity.

In my opinion, really just a personal opinion, web and Internet are not synonyms. Also the Wikipedia article you mention sees them as two different things, as far as I can understand what I am reading. In a sense Internet existed long before the World Wide Web.

Internet is the underlying network whereas web is the interface used to access it (accessing webpages and services using web browsers).

The 1989 in the article refers I think to this: History of the Internet - TCP/IP goes global (1989–2010).

Troll Science
I thought this idea was pretty funny. Probably one of the very few 4chan memes worth porting over to SevenForums, as it isn't TOTALLY stupid (also doesn't contain offensive images). The idea is to post science scenarios that would never work but have some logic in how it might work. Troll Science...

Another Completed Science Experiment & my 3000th post !
I just finished a new custom " Doc " built computer last week. So I have had it running to make sure there were No BSOD's ! Seems like it is going 88mph, but my 2 fingers on the keyboard are not keeping up with it. Here are a few screen Snips & pics: The HD is a Hitachi 2-TB.
