The CICLOPS team are Beatles fans. smile.gif


They should be Sun Ra fans. The guy is from Saturn, after all.

I see that such intercourse long continued would make one thoroughly prosaic, hard,
and coarse. But the longest intercourse with Nature, though in her rudest moods, does
not thus harden and make coarse. A hard, sensible man whom we liken to a rock is
indeed much harder than a rock. From hard, coarse, insensible men with whom I have
no sympathy, I go to commune with the rocks, whose hearts are comparatively soft."

Apparently CICLOPS doesn't allow direct linking. blink.gif

Imagine the transfer speeds if they did allow direct links... huh.gif

Anyway, the image Doug's trying to show is on this page, second one from the top. Beatles fans will recognize the inspiration for this one.
What's even stranger is that even if you click on the image directly from the CICLOPS site, it still pops up that generic hosting image...

Also, you Mars fans out there can see a familiar face sitting beside Carolyn in the topmost pic wink.gif

Blugh - well - go to the home page, click on 'team' and it's the second one down.

Dare I ask - what does Paul McCartney have to do with Cassini or Saturn?


Well I think Paul McCartney IS a space exploration fan since he sang a song live to the International Space Station astronaut/cosmonaut team last summer during his tour.

He has my forgiveness, then.

I finally got it after 14 hours of downloading (much of it under 4 kbps). I have to go in to work in order to get the login info for this new hosting setup we've got, then I'll post it for the lot of you. It's cute and I'm sure my Dad the Beatles fan will enjoy it but I agree with the other Doug, there are too many songs cut too short and abruptly. (And considering the fact that you can't even buy Beatles music online I have to wonder whether Sir Paul will appreciate this digital birthday card or not.) The pictures are, as always, fantastic, however.

Has anyone else caught on to the irony of one Beatles song
"When I'm 64?"

God, the ultimate nasty and ironical practical joker.

yes, that's the specific reason for the video card. Kinda nice, if you ask me. The short clips are necessary since it is the only way to get around the copywrite issue.

as for Beatles fans, I can only attest to Carolyn being a major Beatles fan, not sure about anyone else.

And yes, technically Steve is on the imaging team, though obviously he has other work to attend to first. He did some of his early work on Voyager images of Enceladus.

Actually I was making a more subtle and less happy connotation with the
lyrics in the song and McCartney's current personal life. I'll just leave it
at that.

As for Beatle songs and legalities, the latter is what kept a Beatles song,
"Here Comes the Sun", from being preserved for at least 1 billion years on
the Voyager Interstellar Records.

According to the 1978 book Murmurs of Earth, all four Beatles were quite
happy to have their song on the records, but the company that owned them
refused to release it.

Like they'll be getting royalties off it in a billion years.

Finally! I got it uploaded to Amazon, and tested the download speed, and was getting a much more reasonable 170-180 kbytes/sec. Here's the link:

Enjoy!

I have just dowloaded the "64 sights" movie from the amazon server.

I got an average of 72kb/s for the download.

I have 1500K spped for downloads and 256K for uploads.
