    Phant will be around, boeingfixer, as I suspected will never fulfill his promise of a "consolation" prize - and will only come back on occation to "prove" he hasn't "left after the contest".

    Phantasm66 has been around and to my knowledge hasn't left. As for boeing, well I think we all feel the same on that situation.

    Let's just say don't believe everything you here. I didn't win anything in the contest yet I'm still here because I think this is a great place.

    All well and good but an aircaft would need a VERY large power supply cause the disk the size of plane circular would need to turn and some speed to maintain anti-g. And wouldnt the disk need to be moved ? Cause it just looks like the Disk is a powerful negative magnet sorta idea.

    This seems very impossible to me. You can't just "shield" something against gravity. It goes against the laws of physics. Without a force pushing upward, it's pretty impossible.

    Maybe this works on some quantum level. Personally, I hope it works. The fiction of "flying cars" and whatnot would quickly become reality... Very neato.

    You know, it't hard being me.... :)

    I am sorry gang, for being short on being here lately.

    I have taken some time off work and have been doing things around my house. I haven't really been doing much computer stuff. I will try to make an effort to return to my posting glory.

    And I do still have the other prize stuff, If you all don't hate me too much, I will send it out.
