Question:Each binary digit is termed a bit. A series of 8 bits is grouped together into a word, which is called a byte. A byte can represent 28 = 256 different combinations, which is sufficient to record a typical 8-letter word in a sentence. A typical 400 page book has about 2 x 105 words. Estimate the number of books that can be stored on a 1.35 gigabyte computer.

Answers:28 does not = 256. 2^8 does. But storing 8 letters in one byte is not resonable unless you are using a compression scheme. Typically, uncompressed text is one byte per letter or character, in ASCII. A two letter word, not counting capitals, could be one of 26 times 26 possible combinations, which is much more than 16 times 16 = 256. 2 x 105 = 210, which is only half a word per page. 2^105 is more likely. Also, 1 gigabyte can be 1 times 10^9 = (1000) ^3 bytes if you talk to a hard drive manufacturer, or it can be 2^30 = ( 1024 ) ^ 3 as Windows displays it. regardless, divide 1.35 x 10^9 bytes by 2^105 words per book, to get the number of "byte books per word." Then divide by the number of "bytes per word" to get the number of books.

Question:I made a mistake while trying to assemble a book shelf and now I need to separate 2 pieces of wood that I have glued together. Do you know how I can do that?

Answers:Chances are you can't and you'd damage the wood at the joint. most glues penetrate the wood grain and are stronger than the wood. Best idea would be to saw close to the joint, ideally through it, then decide wether to replace the bit of wood or glue it back up. Next time assemble it dry before gluing to make sure it's ok. Hopefully your mistake won't cost you more than a missing shelf. Sorry if this answer wasn't ultimately more helpful.

Question:i am only 12 and i wrote this about what happened at schhool today please reply if u like it I watched closely as she walked in the room with the most innocent look on her face. It seemed as if the horns on her head had dissolved into her heartrending face. She came closer with her arms out and embraced wide looking for an affectionate hug. I need a hug she remarked solemnly. I was right. I hugged her quickly and as apologetically as I could but it was not enough. What s wrong I said. I got no remark, comment, or response. It felt like my lips were in motion but someone had turned the mute button on me. I was silent to everyone but had too much to say. She walked over to the greatest club teacher Mrs. Sherin and handed her a small folded paper. She slowly took it and read it to herself. She took in a deep breath and only remarked with a quiet sorry. What s wrong I yelled and this time tried to break through the silence. The only answer was a small drip coming from her eye and slowly following her low, bottom eye lash. More tears followed and I too was in pain. I read the paper it said: Dear Alexandra I am sorry but we can only be friends. I hope we can still talk .Nicholas. I looked at the paper and tried to take it all in. My heart was pounding but I could not feel it because I was being destroyed. I felt so bad for her and I watched as more snuffles came from her beautiful face. Then a stream of tears ruined the mascara as it smeared all over in deep brown eyes. I felt my heart as it was being slashed, melted, kicked, punched, stomped on, and destroyed into a million pieces. Alexandra s heart was a full quarter of my heart so the conclusion would be that I would be in the same amount of pain as her. More and More tears continued to follow. I never saw her in so much pain. I motioned her to sit down and we sat together. I held her hand and looked her deeply into her soggy, red eyes and said the most important three words anyone could say to heal a damaged heart. I love you!

Answers:that is great especially for your age you are very talented you definatly have a future in novels i would really read a book that you wrote good luck

Bits of Me Are Falling Apart, William Leith :www.bloomsbury.com William Leith on latest book Bits of Me Are Falling Apart published by Bloomsbury, follow up to The Hungry Years. One morning in August 2007, William Leith wakes up and realises that something is wrong. He is not in a bed, but on an old mattress on the floor. He is not in a house. He is in his office. He is alone. He no longer lives with his little boy and the mother of his little boy. Mentally, he is at the end of his tether. Physically, he is fraying at the edges. Bits of him are falling apart. But then again, so is everything else -- the economy, the environment, the very fabric of society. With his trademark darkly humorous mix of personal story and social commentary, Leith attempts to answer the question: is everything really falling apart? Or is it just him? He examines the ageing process in humans, and in everything else as well, from the universe to the banking system. And he comes to realise that, even if he can't solve the problems of the world, at least he has a thorough understanding of failure.
