    Okay, I'm sure that in an eight-hour day at work, I could find you enough information to make your brain swell for the next 6 months, but I'll limit it this what's below so that I don't spend my whole day doing this instead of work.

    SETI
    Heaps of cool science stuff. Check out the Science section and read about The Drake Equation.

    Side note: For a long time now, I’ve been looking for recordings of the “sounds that stars make.” If anybody has or knows where I can obtain a quality recording of these sounds, I would appreciate that information very much.

    Instruction manual for a Stellar 310 payphone (and others)

    A whole shit-load of radio schematics and manuals

    I did a search on E-bay for ”instructional books”
    There is also a category for this: Books: Non-fiction: Instructional

    Also, go to thrift stores and buy out-dated used encyclopedias. There's loads of cool stuff to look at in those, and at thrift stores, they are real cheap.

    Incidentally, this is one of the things that I love the most about the internet. I can find information on any subject out there, and do some learning. I’m like Johnny5 in [b]Short Circuit[/b]. “In-puuut!”

    my reccomendation for best new book


    "The Theory of Everything"

    it is an ambitious book attempting to unite theories in physics (especially string theory), biological systems, culture, religion, philosophy, morality, all that good stuff..

    i forget the authors name right now, but so far the book is very impressive..

    it's by Shambala Publications..which puts out a ton of awesome books on eastern philosophy and religion, as well as other topics..like "The Tao of Physics" another good one..


    another good one is "The Discoverers"

    an awesome book about man's establishment and discovery of stuff, like the calendar, and time, etc etc....

    there is another one i saw but haven't read yet..i believe it is called "The Language of Math" ..i think

    an incredible book about totally abstract theory on the basis of mathematics

    Hahaha ... I make $12.50 (US$) an hour to sit in front of a computer all day and input numbers into a retail database. Ususally I have plenty of time to goof around. If you need help finding something specific, just let me know, and I'll see what I can do. Too bad I'll be leaving this plush job soon (I'm moving to a new city).

    Thanks for checking on those sound files.

    Check out this book:

    [b]Computer Music: Synthesis, Composition, and Performance[/b]
    by Charles Dodge, Thomas A. Jerse

    I have a copy of it, and there is tons of interesting stuff in there. Loads of diagrams and charts and the like.

    Also, if you haven't seen it already, check out the website HowStuffWorks. There is TONS of stuff on this site. Loads and loads of in-puuuut.

    A couple of years ago, I stumbbled across a site that was an online WWII museum of sorts. They had an extremely vast array of American war propaganga posters. I'll see if I can find it again.
