Copy Xbox Games to 360 – Bypass the protection code on your Xbox games and copy any game you want.

The Xbox 360 is probably the most popular console available right now. Also, millions of people are playing games designed for Xbox right now.

The only negative about Xbox 360 games is that they are expensive and can be easily damaged. To avoid spending a lot of money replacing your games, you can simply copy your Xbox games to your 360.

However, people who have tried to do this quickly realize that it is not such an easy task to do without the right tools to circumvent copyright protection.

Xbox 360 games are in DVD format, so Microsoft has made sure to protect their games from being copied by DVD recorders. The protection that Microsoft has put into its games is in the form of security sectors.

These security sectors are small areas on the game disc that store the license and information about the game. When Microsoft places your game data on these DVD formats, it makes sure to place these safety sectors on the disc. They place these sectors on the disk in a unique way so that only the Xbox console and Microsoft can read them.

So what this means to you, the gamer, is that when you try to copy games using your computer’s DVD burner, you won’t see these visible sectors. To copy Xbox games to your 360, you will need to circumvent these security sectors.

One way to do this is to use a mod chip to bypass all protection codes. However, mod chips will void Microsoft’s warranty, and if you don’t know what you’re doing, you can ruin your gaming system. Another simpler way to do this is to use video game copy software.

This software will allow your computer to read the entire game disc and will allow your Xbox to read the safety sectors on the copied disc. There are plenty of video game copy software that will allow you to copy Xbox games to your 360, but there are only a few good ones. The good ones will allow you to bypass protection codes and allow you to play your games on your Xbox 360.

College Football 2007: There are poll hopefuls, 9 of the top 25 teams get a reality check

(Editor’s note: All rankings used in this article are from the AP Top 25 survey and all equipment rankings used are from Sagarin, the gold standard among ranking services.)

In the world of college football there are hopefuls and hopefuls. Nine of the top 25 AP teams and 3 of the top 5 received a reality check over the weekend.

Was I surprised by this annual occurrence? Hardly. When you start to analyze how some of the teams started the week 4-0 and ended it 4-1, it’s as easy to see as your face in a mirror. Reality has a way of revealing all wrinkles and weaknesses.

For the former, there are the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners who lost a Big 12 Conference game 27-24 by a last-second field goal in Colorado to the Buffalos. Oklahoma fell to No. 10 in the Top 25.

The Sooners rose to their lofty No. 3 spot by beating No. 170 in North Texas, 145 in Utah, 58 in Tulsa and 44 in Miami, FL. His offense scored great for everyone, but his schedule strength was only the 100th best in the country.

Urban Meyer and his defending national champion Florida Gators did not fare better. They lost 20-17 by a home field goal to Auburn in an SEC Conference game. Florida was behind 17-3 entering the fourth quarter.

The loss snapped an 11-game winning streak for the Gators who suffered their first loss at home to Urban Meyer. Meyer’s team had won 18 straight home games, 17 since Meyer took office in 2005.

The Gators reached their No. 4 ranking by getting the best of No. 110 Western Kentucky, No. 85 Mississippi, No. 77 Troy and No. 32 Tennessee, an SEC opponent. Beating Tennessee is what lifted Florida up the rankings. Florida fell to No. 9 in the rankings.

No. 5 West Virginia collided with No. 18 South Florida in a Big East matchup in South Florida and lost 21-13. Coach Jim Leavitt and his South Florida Bulls are fast becoming the team no one wants to face and the history of college football season.

West Virginia fell from No. 5 to No. 13 in the rankings, while South Florida climbed from No. 18 to No. 6.

West Virginia rose to its No. 5 spot by defeating No. 129 Marshall, No. 94 in West Michigan, No. 74 in East Carolina and No. 51 in Maryland. Mountaineer fans who hoped West Virginia would remain undefeated this year and win the national title must regroup.

No. 7 Texas really got caught and embarrassed at home against Kansas State in another Big 12 game when the Wildcats dropped the Longhorns, 41-21. I have been questioning the stature of Texas since the beginning of the year and now my suspicions have been validated.

Texas went 4-0 by defeating Rice No. 162, Arkansas State No. 100, Central Florida No. 73 and TCU No. 54. Particularly revealing was Central Florida, which Texas beat by a field goal while yielding 32 points. Texas, which is ranked 25th by Sagarin, fell to 19th, a much more realistic place for the Longhorns to relax.

No. 10 Rutgers, the Big East favorites, were upset at home by Maryland 34-24, and fell to No. 21. I think Rutgers will soon come out of the Top 25 as two 5-0 teams in the Big East. -No. 20 Cincinnati and Connecticut not ranked – are being overlooked.

Rutgers rose to No. 10 by beating No. 208 AA Norfolk State, No. 142 Buffalo and No. 68 Navy. Good grief, talk about an unconvincing schedule. They have what they deserve.

Sagarin ranks Rutgers 38th; even that seems high to me right now.

No. 11 Oregon played host to No. 6 California in a Pac 10 showdown and led 14-10 going into the fourth quarter, but the Bears scored three touchdowns in the final 15 minutes to knock them out, 31-24.

Worse still, the Ducks’ Cameron Colvin scored what appeared to be the tying touchdown in the closing seconds, but fumbled and the ball went out of the end zone, giving California a touchback and a win when reviewed. the play. Duck fans at Autzen Stadium realized that the errant play could have cost them a national championship down the road.

Oregon fell to No. 14 in the Top 25 and California climbed from No. 6 to No. 3.

No. 13 Clemson traveled to Georgia Tech and watched his dream season begin to unravel as the Yellow Jacket defense held the Tigers on a field goal to win, 13-3. Clemson fell to number 22.

The Tigers broke into the Top 25 by managing No. 154 AA Furman, No. 133 Louisiana-Monroe, No. 87 from North Carolina State and No. 21 from Florida State. Clemson rose through the ranks by beating No. 21 Florida State 24-18 in his first game.

Sagarin ranks Clemson 34th, nowhere near the Top 25. Clemson could break out of the Top 25 in no time.

Joe Paterno’s No. 21 Penn State Nittany Lions started the season 3-0 before losing to a rejuvenated Michigan at the Big House, 14-9, and now loses his second Big 10 game to Illinois 27-20 in Illinois.

Going on the road in the Big 10 Conference games has suddenly become difficult for Penn State as it came out of the Top 25.

Again, Penn State began its season by racking up scores at the worst Division 1-A school in college football, No. 171 Florida International, the seventh worst team in Division 1-A, No. 142 Buffalo and the seemingly hapless No. 95 and Winless Notre Dame. What were those Happy Valley fans thinking? A national championship? Think again.

No. 22 Alabama was the ninth of the top 25 teams to lose when first-year coach Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide visited Florida State and lost 21-14. Alabama dropped out of the Top 25 after arriving just a week earlier. Sagarin now ranks Alabama at 39th.

I thought Saban could have kept Alabama on the rise; Now I have to readjust my expectations for Crimson Tide.

And so the nasty 9s (Oklahoma, Florida, West Virginia, Texas, Rutgers, Oregon, Clemson, Penn State and Alabama) all fell, but the USC No. 1 Trojans managed to escape by just defeating Washington at Husky Stadium. with a field goal 27. -24.

USC committed 16 penalties, threw 2 interceptions, fumbled and suffered a blocked punt, yet prevailed to retain their perfect 5-0 record. The 2-3 Washington Huskies aren’t exactly a powerhouse, however they are ranked No. 27 by Sagarin, not bad at all.

Being so unimpressive, USC slipped to No. 2 when the LSU Tigers took first place.

LSU edged out Tulane, their No. 144 state rival, 34-9, after smashing No. 57 Mississippi State 45-0, No. 28 Virginia Tech 48-7 and No. 125 Middle Tennessee 44-0. LSU’s best win came at home against No. 17 from South Carolina 28-16. Sagarin ranks LSU No. 1 in the country.

Only one other game really caught my eye and that was Wisconsin No. 9, which saw Michigan State 34 points and then won by a field goal at home. The Badgers rose to No. 5 in the top 25.

I still think Wisconsin is not that great. Sagarin ranks Wisconsin 24th. The Badgers still have road games at Illinois, Penn State and Ohio State, and then host Michigan. After those 4 games, I doubt Wisconsin is 11-0 in their last game in Minnesota.

Teams in the Top 25 start to lose at this point in the season because they deliberately schedule weak teams early on to give their players confidence, climb the Top 25 rankings, give their boosters hope, and draw attention to their programs.

Once the conference game starts, the mess is over, as the nasty 9 discovered over the weekend.

The five golden rules for Tinder

Internet dating sucks. I’ve heard a lot of men say this line to me, and it’s usually the guys who haven’t been on a date in months that say it. I understand that if you are not getting love online then the first thing to blame is the entire World Wide Web, but just like we can’t blame the entire chicken industry for a bad chicken leg at KFC, no we can blame the internet for our dating. afflictions. The fault lies with one person. YOU

Tinder IS the best dating app since … well, forever. My friends and I have never had so many dates in such a short amount of time with little to no effort. The great thing about Tinder is that it essentially allows you to “speed-date”, date a girl, joke around a bit, and get on a date. Yes, not all girls will say yes to your request for a romantic evening under the stars, but they are on Tinder for a reason, and if they have attacked you, then they are already considering meeting you. So without further ado, let me go over the five golden rules of Tinder so that you too can enjoy the benefits that Tinder brings to so many men.

1.) 5 good photos: Now guys, I’m NOT talking about mirror selfies or shirtless selfies. Delete them from your phone immediately. These would be great if you were on Grinder, but luckily for us males, the female of our species isn’t looking for a six-pack online. You can find that any day, anywhere. Photos should be clear, iPhone 6 at least, but I suggest a better camera than that. You need a face photo, a full body photo, a photo of you enjoying an activity and just showing how wonderful your life is. I also suggest that you don’t have pictures of yourself drunk and hanging out with some girls. Some guys put photos of them surrounded by girls in a nightclub. This just seems to be trying. Show yourself to some friends, in fancy situations, looking like a cool guy. End of story. Selfies are a big NO NO. Oh, and no photos of your … manhood, no matter how impressive you think it may be.

2.) The opening line: Okay, delete the following line from memory “Hey, how are you?” NEVER !!! Repeat this line. Do you realize how many matches a beautiful girl can get a day? And you’re starting with the most boring, generic, and mundane phrase of all time. Put yourself in girlish shoes for a moment. She has uploaded to Tinder. Probably because she’s bored and a little curious. Most girls will play it like a video game, with no intention of meeting anyone, so the only way to reach these girls is to MAKE IT FUN. Make it rhetorical and don’t ask questions. She can answer if she wants, if not, who cares. It has to be needless, careless, and seem like a simple expression of the wonder that radiates through you. These are some of my favorite first lines.

1. I feel from your witty and creative catchphrase that perhaps you could be missing a bit of magic and flavor in your day, so I offer you an opportunity to have your day enhanced by the presence of my genius.

2. (Insert name here) I think you have a confession to make …

3. I am currently trying on a variety of outfits for my costume party tonight. I’m thinking of Batman, but again, the redness from Superman’s underwear really makes my eyes pop.

4. Today I had the strangest day. I woke up thinking it was Saturday, but then quickly realized it was (insert day here). Fortunately, I am fast and got to work on time.

You can see that all these initial lines have something in common. They communicate that I don’t care, that I’m not taking this too seriously, that I’m a happy guy, that I’m making it fun, and that I’m probably a cool guy too.

3.) Quickly disconnect: The world of Tinder moves fast, just like the real world moves fast. Women are emotional creatures, and once they stop feeling, they start to forget. You might be awesome on Monday, but by Tuesday, you could be completely forgotten if you don’t keep fresh in his mind. That is why you must become a real person as fast as you can. Tinder should only be the method of meeting and opening. After that, you need to disconnect as quickly as possible. Get that phone number in 4-6 messages. Just make it fun, fun, fun, and then say the following sentence.

“Hey, I have to sneak out. I have lives to inspire. You sound like you’re not a creep or a stalker. I love it. Give me your number and maybe I’ll text you.”

4.) Get the first meeting fast: My advice is to get it for that night. But I understand that some people may have to work weeknights at night so you may have to wait a bit. But get it as fast as possible, and then once a day until the meeting send a funny message to keep it fresh in the girl’s mind. Remember, the woman follows her emotions, keep relaying it, and she will remember you, the moment you get bored, goodbye kind sir.

5.) Don’t bite off more than you can chew: This may be a quality issue. But once you have handled steps 1-4, this can become a problem. If you start matching too much and start talking to too many then you may start to get nothing. “The person who chases two rabbits does not catch or

Using Thrust Bearing for Drone Quadcopter Propeller Assembly and Air Bearings for Internal Motor Assembly

Should we use different bearings for our high speed rotor blades which are used in the most common drone types like Quadcopter designs? I think so, as these drones need to be very reliable, long-range, and will have a significant cargo on board as part of their important missions, be it on the battlefield, in a commercial application, or delivering you a very important pizza or a Amazon package.

Not long ago, I was listening to an interesting NASA podcast about air bearings and aluminum bearings:

NASA Aeronautical Research Technical Seminar Podcast Series:

“Technical Seminar 16: Oil-free turbomachinery technology for helicopter propulsion and advanced aerospace propulsion and power 1:14:33 11/24/2008. Oil-free turbomachinery technology for helicopter propulsion and advanced aerospace propulsion and power”

This got me thinking that this is not only relevant for today’s military aircraft, spaceflight propulsion, future jet engines, but also for small high-speed engines spinning at over 10,000 RPM. If we want these engines to last and if there are several engines per flying ship; MAV – Micro Air Vehicle, UAS – Unmanned Aerial System, or PFC – Personal Flying Craft (Air Taxi), then it makes sense to use such technology.

You see, I was thinking that it would surely be nice to lighten the engines in such future VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) concept aircraft designs as there are often 3-4 engines or more. Some of the benefits are very relevant:

1.) Virtually maintenance-free bearing assembly
2.) Reduced weight
3.) More uniform friction heat

This is a very good thing due to the geometry and weight distribution that Quadcopters have. Lower weight means more payload, less fuel and / or greater range.

Perhaps the weight savings of the lubricating oil (2 types needed in normal current helicopter technology) in each of the four engines could also give weight room for the electromagnetic bearings with a combination of thrust bearings around the outer ring in the Rotor blades to control vibration and release – Free wheel drag and easy start. If the motors are electric, better in this case. When it comes to high speed gas turbines, we save weight and add safety to a design that requires almost no maintenance.

Some of NASA’s tests have completed 60,000 hours without damage or the need to replace parts or bearings. For a helicopter this is almost unheard of due to the harsh environment in which they fly and the fact that the engines are subjected to such a significant load the entire time the aircraft is in the air.

Now for the outer assembly, the outer bearings get more safety, but reduced friction is the key, therefore the electromagnetic system makes sense, but due to the weight it may not be 100% magnetic. This article explains the concept of Thrust Bearings and the combinations that I propose we employ.

“Design, Manufacture, and Performance of Reed Gas Thrust Bearings for Microturbomachine Applications”, by Brian Dykas, Robert Bruckner, Christopher DellaCorte, Brian Edmonds and Joseph Prahl. (NASA / TM-2008-215062, January 2008; GT2008-50377).

Currently, we know that the quadcopter design is probably one of the most stable designs yet, but most quadcopters are just toys, small drones, and have a limited payload. If we want these types of designs to fly around people, heavyweights or become our future flying cars and air taxis, commuter shuttles, we will need close to 100% safety, which means that current helicopter components they may not be viable. Please think ahead, maybe you can have a flying car after all?
