Total Lunar Eclipse tonight, in the night of Monday, December 20th, 2010, the day before winter solstice

Click to see how a Lunar Eclipse arises
Tonight is the night that our moon (our natural satellite), will be vanished. The eclipse will be visible across North America. The eclipse begins at 1:33 am. It will be best viewed on 3:17 am according to the people of NASA. Today is also the shortest day of the year, known as the winter solstice. The winter officially begins on December 21.

A Lunar Eclipse (Moon Eclipse) is not the same as a Solar Eclipse. By a Lunar Eclipse the moon will take a variety of red colors when the Earth stands between the exactly aligned path of the Sun and the Moon. So the Earth will block the Sun's Rays from striking when the Moon passes behind the Earth.

The last total Lunar Eclipse was in August 16 2008. Partial Lunar Eclipses come more frequently. The last one was in June the 26th, 2010.

Lunar Eclipse Live Camera:

For people how missed the Lunar Eclipse or didn't saw it because of the bad weather: Watch the lunar eclipse here, online.

Grooveshark: een nieuwe revolutie in de muziekindustrie, 170 miljoen nummers gratis en 100% legaal

Grooveshark Logo
Grooveshark is een online muziek-speler met een muziek bibliotheek van meer dan 170 miljoen nummers. Ze noemen het een muziek revolutie. En het beste boven al: het is allemaal gratis. Maar is het legaal? Ja het is 100% legaal. De artiesten worden betaald door de inkomsten van advertenties op de website. Elk nummer dat je speelt wordt gestreamd, maar u kunt de liedjes ook downloaden door ze te kopen op Amazon en iTunes en dit in een handomdraai. Dit betekend terug wat meer inkomsten voor de artiesten. Maar waarom zou u de liedjes downloaden. Je kunt ze online immers helemaal gratis telkens opnieuw afspelen.

De bibliotheek van Grooveshark is geweldig, je vindt er bijna elke song terug. Alle nummers van over de hele wereld zijn slechts met 1 muisklik van u verwijderd en ... Het is helemaal gratis! Zoeken naar een liedje? Typ het in het zoekvak, en in minder dan een seconde kun je de song af spelen. U kunt zelfs uw eigen mp3's uploaden naar hun server. Vroeger kon je zelfs hiermee als uploaden geld verdienen. Zelfs met het taggen van songs. Deze functie om als uploader en tagger geld te verdienen is ondertussen uitgeschakeld. Naast het gratis kunnen afspelen van muziek en een groot assortiment aan liedjes is was de bijverdienste van oplouders wat Grooveshark zo groot heeft gemaakt. Iedereen kan luisteren naar de liedjes die anderen geupload. In feite is het een soort van online P2P (Peer to Peer) programma maar dan van een nieuwe generatie die volledig legaal is in vergelijking met andere P2P programma's. En natuurlijk zijn alle nummers DRM-vrij. Het meest verbazingwekkende aan dit platform is dat het allemaal gratis en 100% legaal.

Christmas tree out of a can, the trend of Christmas 2009 continues in 2010

The hype for the Christmas period:
A Christmas tree out of a can
It can become the hype of this holiday season: the Christmas tree in a can. It suffices to open the can of 7.50 euro's, watering the earth and a few days later a small Christmas tree germinate. 'The can contains all the necessary nutrients for the tree to grow' according to Thierry Moortgat, who sell the Christmas trees. Such a can is an ideal Christmas gift, because after three weeks, the child has his own little Christmas tree.

A real spruce needs a year or six to grow into a full Christmas tree. But this is rather a desktop model. He is more than 10 to 15 centimeters (3,94 to 5,91 inches). Ideal for brighten your Office in these dark days. Does it need to be trimmed? The Christmas tree is just big enough to gang a little Christmas ball and a little pendulum in it.

Your own Christmas tree from a can. It's something else. Open the can, cover a little water and within a few days to grow your own Christmas tree out. Buy it on gigagadgets.be.

The can contains all the necessary nutrients that plants need to grow. As long as the can isn't opened, can it be stored for several months. You need to give it water if you open it. And after a few days you have a real Christmas tree that is growing.

Chromium OS van Google, het snelste besturingssysteem ter wereld, beschikbaar eind 2010

Chromium OS Logo
Het Google-Team is hard aan het werken om zijn Chromium OS klaar te krijgen voor het einde van 2010. Het besturingssysteem genaamd 'Chromium' is gemaakt voor mini-laptops, maar zal ook werken op laptops en PC's. Voor GSM's en SmartPhone's was er al Android die ook op minilaptops wordt gedraaid. Met Google's Chromium OS kijgt het Android besturings- systeem er een geduchte concurent bij.

Het is speciaal gemaakt voor internet gebaseerde toepassingen die kunnen worden benaderd via het internet. Nadat u bent in-geloged, spring je bijna onmiddellijk in Google's Chrome internet browser.

Chromium zal enkel werken op SSD, Solid State Drive, zoals USB-Flash Disks en SD-kaarten. Er zal geen ondersteuning zijn voor harde schijven, voor zover we weten. Chromium zal zeer snel kunnen opstarten mede omdat Solid State Drives sneller zijn. In de toekomst zullen mini-laptops enkel nog beschikbaar zijn op SSD. De voordelen hiervan zijn: minder vermogen nodig en minder bewegende delen die kunnen breken. Google's Chromium OS zal dus sneller laden dan een Windows of Mac Besturingssyteem.

Zie hoe Google zijn OS snel en licht maakt

Top Gear Season 16 uitgesteld tot in het voorjaar van 2011

In een eerdere post hadden we het al over het 16de seizoen van Top Gear die in 2010 zou starten 2 weken voor Kerstmis. Maar deze datum is uitgesteld tot in het voorjaar van 2011. Dit merkten we op in het Top Gear magazine van september 2010. De grootste reden voor deze vertraging is dat de BBC crew op zoek moest naar een nieuwe Stig. Maar geen paniek, ze vonden een nieuwe Stig.

Seen in the Top Gear magazine of September 2010. The reason that Top Gear's Season 16 is delayed is mostly because of the loss of the white Stig. But no panic they found a new one.

Merry Christmas with love.

Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.

I have a list of folks I know, all written in a book
And every year when Christmas comes, I go and take a look
And that is when I realize that these names are a part
Not of the book they are written in, but really of my heart.

Somehow, not only for Christmas
But all the long year through
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you.

Let the spirit of love
gently fill our hearts and homes.
In this loveliest of seasons
may you find many reasons for happiness.

To a joyful present
and a well remembered past
Best wishes for Happy Holidays
and a magnificent New Year.

May the Christmas season
fill your home with joy
your heart with love
and your life with laughter.

May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill,
And may the year ahead be full of contentment and joy.
Have a Merry Christmas.

It's Baby's first Christmas, what a beautiful sight!
As he gurgles out loud in spontaneous delight.
As he gazes at the Tree, with its baubles and trim
I know only He can hear the Angels sweet hymns.

A New year
A New Start
A New Chapter
A New Beginning
Forget the bad
Cherish the GOOD
I sincerely wish u a very blessed new year ahead. happy new year.

Can I have your picture, so Santa Claus knows exactly what to give me.
Happy Christmas.

A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky
A savior's birth, and peace on earth
And praise to God on high.

May ur world be filled with warmth and good chear this Holy season,
and throughout the year.

Wish ur Christmas be filled with peace and love.
Merry X-mas.

Christmas may be many things
or it may be a few.
4 you, the joy
is each new toy 4 me
it's watching U.

May the good times and treasures of the present become the golden
memories of tomorrow. Wish u lots of love, joy and happiness.

Chromium OS by Google, the fastest OS available on the end of 2010

Chromium OS Logo
Google is working hard to get their Chromium OS ready for the end of 2010. The Operating System called 'Chromium' is made for mini laptops but will also work on laptops and PC's. Some Minilaptops and SmartPhone's that are using the Android OS are now getting competition of Google's Chromium OS.

It's made for working with internet based applications that can be accessed through the internet. After you log in, you almost immediately jump in Google's Chrome internet browser.

Chromium will only work on SSD, Solid State Drives like USB-Flash Disks and SD-Cards, it will not support hard-disk drives, for so far we know. Chromium will boot very fast partly because Solid State Drives are faster. In the future mini-laptops will be only available on SSD. The advantages of this are: less power needed and less moving parts that can break.

Google also dropped unnecessary services. So it's loading faster. After 2 seconds you get a login splash screen, type in your Google account name and password and you're set off.

See how Google made it's OS fast and light

How can I save on energy and save money? Tips and Tricks - How to save energy and money?

This page goes about how you can save energy, the environment and your money. Some of these tips will have a major impact on your wallet in the positive sense. Good luck and success with these tips.

- Dry your laundry on the clothesline in the summer.
- Put your heating in summer mode.
- If your boiler has now summer setting, lower the temperature of your boiler manually.
- Air conditioning creates a fresh feeling, but is not the most energy efficient solutions. Lowering the temperature with 1 degree it can lower your costs to a 25% annual
- During wintertime you can just do the opposite, set your thermostat one degree lower and wear a thick sweater if necessary.

' Did you know that you waste more energy if you heat 2 times a day from 5 degrees to 20 degrees. For example, if you work during the day and you warm up in the morning for 1 to 2 hours from 10 degrees to 20 degrees in a very short time it requires much energy and money. After two hours you turn the thermostat down 10 degrees and if you come back in the evening you put it around 17 degrees, then again a lot of energy required to turn 10 degrees to 20 degrees about going to spend the night. Why not warming up in the morning from 15 to 20 degrees and during the day leave it at 17 degrees, the energy wasted is minimal when you need 20 degrees in the evening. Less energy is asked when you put the heater from 17 degrees to 20 degrees. Warming up 3 degrees higher is peanuts compared to 10 degrees more. '

- Connect devices without a switch (such as petty theft, electric toothbrush) to switch sockets to avoid sleep.
- Defrost your refrigerator and freezer regularly.
- Replace your traditional incandescent bulbs by energy saving bulbs.
- Do not use old freezer, the old generation freezers absorb to much energy.
- Choose the right program for your dishwasher, washer and dryer, some new devices can be 'eco' programmed.
- Choose appliances with an A-label.
- If a battery charger, remove it from the socket when the battery power, this is much better for the rechargeable battery itself and the service life of the battery will be longer.
- Shut down every device that contents a standby LED before you go to sleep.

There are plenty more tricks and tips for saving energy and money, they will be added later...

11 november van het jaar 1918, is de dag dat de Duitse troepen zich overgaven aan de Belgische troepen. Deze dag noemen het ook wel eens 'wapenstilstandsdag'. We herdenken hierbij meer dan honderdduizend gesneuvelde soldaten van meer dan 25 verschillende nationaliteiten die vochten en sneuvelden in deze bloederige oorlog die plaats vond in België, voornamelijk in de Westhoek en rondom Ieper. Vandaag herdenken we deze feestdag door tal van activiteiten en bezichtigingen in de Westhoek die te maken hebben met deze gruwelijke oorlog. Er is onder meer de Last Post, die wordt bijgewoond door de oud-strijders, een 11 november lezing, een hulde aan het graf van de onbekende soldaat, het bezichtigen van Engelse begraafplaatsen in Zonnebeke en tal van andere activiteiten.
