Viking Sword Technology

Secrets of the Viking Sword

  The Vikings were among the fiercest warriors of all time. Yet only a select few carried the ultimate weapon of their era: the feared Ulfberht sword. Fashioned using a process that would remain unknown to the Vikings' rivals for centuries, the Ulfberht was a revolutionary high-tech tool as well as a work of art. Considered one of the greatest swords ever made, it remains a fearsome weapon more than a millennium after it last saw battle. But how did Viking sword makers design and build the Ulfberht, and what was its role in history? Now, NOVA uses cutting edge science and old-fashioned detective work to reconstruct the Ulfberht and finally unravel the "Secrets of the Viking Sword."

I have a week to finish a project I'm doing for someone and everything is running amok.  The latest being that my camera's 30GB Sandisk suddenly became "Write Protected."  I spent two fricking hours on this only to discover (I know, you knew about it) that there is a Write protection tab on that little bitty, size of my fingernail,  drive!  I had to put on reading glasses and take it to sunlight to see the slide.  So this is where dotage has led me.

Is Terry McAuliffe’s Million Car A Year Factory Completely Phony?


Terry McAuliffe's company told Chinese investors it was building a factory to produce up to a million cars a year -- a million cars – that’s more than Chrysler’s total sales of domestic cars and trucks combined. Now people are asking where did some $28.5 million go, but Fast Terry and GreenTech Automotive aren't talking.
