How to use Google for Hacking. Google serves almost 80 percent of all search queries on the Internet, proving itself as the most popular search engine. However Google makes it possible to reach not only the publicly available information resources, but also gives access to some of the most confidential information that should never have been revealed. In this post I will show how to use Google for exploiting security vulnerabilities within websites. Top 10 Strangest Things In Space Space Let’s be honest: space is an absolutely crazy place. Most science fiction writers throw in a planet with two stars that looks vaguely like Southern California, and call it a day. But the cosmos is a lot stranger than we give it credit for: Everyone knows that shooting stars are just meteors entering the atmosphere, right? If you didn’t, congratulations—you just failed the fourth grade.

46 Fabulous Photos of Endeavour’s Last Ever Spacewalk May 27th, 2011: the last spacewalk for NASA’s Endeavour astronauts. Here, a fish-eye lens attached to an electronic still camera was used to capture this image of NASA astronaut Michael Fincke (top center) during the mission’s fourth session of extravehicular activity (EVA) as construction and maintenance continued on the International Space Station. Photo #1 by NASA Ars Magna Lucis et Umbrae The Great Art of Light and Shadow "The truth is, this Jesuit, as generally the most of his order, have a great ambition to be thoughte the greate and learned men of the world; and to that end writes greate volumes, on all subjects, with gay pictures and diagrams to set them forth, for ostentation And to fill up those volumes, they draw in all things, by head and shoulders; and these too for the most part, stolen from other authors. So that if that little, which is their owne, were separated from what is borrowed from others, or impertinent to their present arguments, their swollen volumes would shrink up to the size of our Almanacks. But enough of these Mountebankes*."[Robert Payne in a letter to Gilbert Sheldon, 1650]{*mountbanke = charlatan}

Simply placing a bottle of water in a hole in the ceiling can light up a room with the same brightness as a 50-watt light bulb! Residents have better lighting and are using less electricity. Check out how it works in the video.

Dark alien planet discovered by NASA An alien world blacker than coal, the darkest planet known, has been discovered in the galaxy. The world in question is a giant the size of Jupiter known as TrES-2b. NASA's Kepler spacecraft detected it lurking around the yellow sun-like star GSC 03549-02811 some 750 lightyears away in the direction of the constellation Draco. The researchers found this gas giant reflects less than 1 percent of the sunlight falling on it, making it darker than any planet or moon seen up to now. [The Strangest Alien Planets] "It's just ridiculous how dark this planet is, how alien it is compared to anything we have in our solar system," study lead-author David Kipping, an astronomer at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, told

Arduino 1.0 with enc28j60 Ethernet Shield V1.1 - Arduino 1.0 with enc28j60 Ethernet Shield V1.1 18 december 2011 | Classified in: Electronic | Tags: arduino, ethernet, shield Here is how to use the enc28j60 Ethernet Shield V1.1 with Arduino 1.0. Introduction The Arduino team recently released the Arduino software in version 1.0, which adds a lots of new feature and bug fix (see release notes) but also breaks backward compatibility with sketches and libraries written for the previous versions of the software. From now, in order to use the cheap enc28j60 Ethernet Shield V1.1 you will need a library that is compatible with the latest revision of the Arduino IDE.

Highly Detailed 3D Characters From Top 3D Artists - 53 Examples Most 3d artists’ portfolios have at least a beautiful woman character in it and it will be no surprise that you’ll find a lot of them here. Now besides the curious gazing at these 3d pictures, you must realize the sisyphean work that is being put in these characters, the long hours to create the render and then applying the high quality texture to get incredible the incredible results illustrated below. Rage Captain Jack Sparrow Transient Princess The Eye of God Claim: Photograph taken by the Hubble Telescope shows a nebula dubbed the 'Eye of God.'

This image was NASA's "Astronomy Picture of the Day" for . The Helix Nebula does not naturally appear with the colors shown above, however; the tinting of the image is artificial.

Earth-size planet found: Lightest exoplanet yet orbits Sun-like star Alpha Centauri B Newly found world orbits Alpha Centauri B, 4.3 light years from our SunIt is the lightest exoplanet yet found orbiting a Sun-like starIt is thought to be too hot for life, and there is likely no water presentBut presence suggests there may be other planets within the same system By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 08:18 GMT, 17 October 2012 | Updated: 12:37 GMT, 17 October 2012 An Earth-sized planet has been found orbiting a star in Alpha Centauri, our nearest neighbouring solar system. The mystery world circling Alpha Centauri B is thought to be much too hot to support life, with surface temperatures of around 1,500C.
