Search for alternative planets to use after a few billion years

As can be seen from the wikipedia entry on the life cycle of sun, the earth will not be safe for humans to saty after a few billion years. So, we need to start searching for alternative planets to live on after a few billion years.

Although a few billion years is quiet a lot of time, the problem to be solved is also quiet complex. Finding an alternative planet is not going to be easy. Just moving from one city to another requires so much planning.... if we want to shift to a differnt planet... thats going to require much more planning. Some of the problems we are going to face are:
  • Means of transport for such a large number of organisms and stuff.
  • reconstruction of our planet on the new planet
  • taking snapshots of earth...and stuff for the purpose of keeping track of our history

Microsoft Visio-Competition

For those of you who dont know what is microsoft visio check out the microsoft site. You can download a trail version for free. It has got a really neat SDK.

I did some really small stuff with it. These were the three entries for the Visio contest. Visio combines the best of powerpoint, word and Visual basic macro scripting.

The first entry is a file location tracking utility for real time tracking of files. It also provides the required information about the correct support groups to contact.

The second is a process flow analysis chart for various processes based on the number of incidents or issues.

The third is the flowgraph, which gives a graphical representation of flowcharts.
