История и значение Вашей фамилии онлайн
Надя, статистика прикольная!
Интересно будет узнать, например через месяц, какое отношение посетивших твою страничку с лайтбоксами к посетившим все лайтбоксы. Мне почему-то кажется, что это будет не очень большая величина.
Но вообще конечно интересно увидеть географию посетителей. История фамилии, онлайн.

Да да!!!!
Ну если даже их будет не много, самое важное что хотелось узнать географию и время посещения.

Я думаю за неделю будут уже результаты.

Короче экспериментально это все)))

я засеку посещения и простым банерам и по банерам со странички.
потом сравним. Ой изменила данные только одной картинки, уже кликнули на банер.
прикольно блин.

видно даже от куда приходили, с какой картники. Аха, очень, подключайся Макс :)

А я щас сделала дубликаты Лайт боксов и все линки перепишу на новые лайт боксы,
и потом получу еще инфу о том "какие мои галереи из общий массы 18 Лб самые что не наесть кликабельные).

Совершенно верно можно и там.

Но постарайся понять то, что интересует так же понять эффективность данной ДОМАШНЕЙ СТРАНИЧКИ.
тоесть, получается что если Банер №1 приводит в Лайтбокс №1, и там значение вашей фамилии (к примеру "Недвижимость" назовем), и так же Банер № 1 (на домашней страничке) приводит в Латбокс № 2 (назовем "Недвижимость 1", c содержимым таким же как и "Недвижимость"). История и значение фамилии.

Получу анализ чище.

Буду видеть тех кто пришел с домашней странички отдельно от тех кто пришел по обыкновенным банерам в Дескрипшене.

Вот и весь фокус.

Развести 2 потока кликальщиков на два потока и не смешивать их в единый поток. Значение фамилии кудинов тоже интересно.
потому что потом хрен проанализируешь если всех смешать. Анют проверим не переживай.
Щас тока доразберусь тут.
И затестим.

Ну что поделать если линки на ПОФАЙЛ криво работают.
Я уже всякими методами пыталась, ни чего не вышло. Фамилии, значение и толкование.

если ты нажал закладку сеть, то она так и будет отображаться при попытки зайти через линк на Профайл. Это я понял. Я не понял как все дальше будет работать. Как увидеть с какой картинки заходили и т.д.
Сколько раз клацнули в ЛБ я и сейчас вижу на странице лайтбоксов.
Для чего все загонять на свой сайт?

Bugs that shit diesel?...
Joule Unlimited Claims It Can Make Diesel Fuel With Sun, Water & CO2

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts biotechnology company says it can produce the fuel that runs Jaguars and jet engines using the same ingredients that make grass grow.

Joule Unlimited has invented a genetically-engineered organism that it says simply secretes diesel fuel or ethanol wherever it finds sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.

The Cambridge, Mass.-based company says it can manipulate the organism to produce the renewable fuels on demand at unprecedented rates, and can do it in facilities large and small at costs comparable to the cheapest fossil fuels.

What can it mean? No less than "energy independence," Joule's web site tells the world, even if the world's not quite convinced.

"We make some lofty claims, all of which we believe, all which we've validated, all of which we've shown to investors," said Joule chief executive Bill Sims.

"If we're half right, this revolutionizes the world's largest industry, which is the oil and gas industry," he said. "And if we're right, there's no reason why this technology can't change the world."

The doing, though, isn't quite done, and there's skepticism Joule can live up to its promises.

National Renewable Energy Laboratory scientist Philip Pienkos said Joule's technology is exciting but unproven, and their claims of efficiency are undercut by difficulties they could have just collecting the fuel their organism is producing.

Timothy Donohue, director of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, says Joule must demonstrate its technology on a broad scale.

New study puts diesel on top...
Diesel VS Hybrid VS Ethanol, which is best?
Posted Nov 13th 2007 2:07PM by Sam Abuelsamid
Filed under: Diesel, Ethanol, Hybrid, Green Daily

According to a new study, diesel tops hybrids and ethanol isn't even really in the game. Researchers at the Rand Corporation did a cost-benefit analysis of the top near-term alternatives to standard gasoline power-trains that looked at fuel savings, technology costs and performance. They also factored in societal costs in the form of noxious pollutants, greenhouse gas emissions and energy security costs. The analysis was performed for a mid-sized car, a mid-sized SUV and a large pickup truck.

Based on the consumer factors, modern clean diesels yielded net savings over the life of the vehicle ranging from $460 to $2,289 for the different vehicle types. Hybrids yielded smaller but still net positive savings of $198 to $1,066. In spite of the relatively small cost premium to create an E85 capable vehicle, ethanol on the other hand cost substantially more over the life of the car. Thanks in part to the increased fuel consumption of E85, it will cost from $1,034 to $1,632 more than gasoline to operate.

When societal costs are examined the finishing order remains the same although they shift a bit toward the negative. The hybrid car was actually a net negative in this case at $317 more than a gasoline equivalent. The ethanol combination ranged from $1,046 more for cars to $2,049 for pickups. Unless cellulosic ethanol can become mainstream, this fuel simply does not look like a good idea.

MTV to pimp out a '65 Impala with 800hp biodiesel for Earth Day
Posted Apr 14th 2007 5:26PM by Sam Abuelsamid
Filed under: Sedans/Saloons, Green, Chevrolet

Next week on MTV, it's a "Very Special Edition" of Pimp My Ride. In honor of Earth Day coming on April 22, the crew of the popular MTV show that proves on a regular basis that having a large budget in no way guarantees good judgment will be updating a 1965 Chevy Impala. Generally, the best way to have a 65 Impala help the environment would be to tow it to the nearest car crusher and then melt it down to make new cars.

That, however, wouldn't be nearly as entertaining as the approach taken by the crew at Galpin Auto Sports, and it certainly wouldn't merit inclusion here. Instead, they've tossed the old pre-EPA engine that was in the Impala. GM provided the team with a brand new Duramax diesel V-8 as is used in the automaker's full size trucks and SUVs, and after a few minor tweaks, it was installed in the Impala. Result: the GAS crew took the engine from 360hp to 800hp running on biodiesel! Stay tuned for more on the veggie oil special later this week.

I certainly don't agree with Mr. Abuelsamid's view that old classic cars should be melted down.
In fact, I hope this trend catches on. That is, after all, why I started this community in the first place!

Detroit Auto Show: Audi unleashes the beastly Q7 V12 TDI
Posted Jan 7th 2007 5:32PM by Eric Bryant
Filed under: Concept Cars, Detroit Auto Show, SUVs, Green, Audi


Audi refers to its new V12 TDI turbodiesel as "majestic", but somehow, that word fails to adequately describe the company's latest oilburner. Grammy-winning singer Seal was on hand to belt out his hit "Crazy", and that term more accurately describes a 6L diesel that makes 500 HP and 737 lb-ft of the twisty stuff (that latter number is maintained in the useful range of 1800- 3000 RPM). This is accomplished via a pair of variable-vane turbochargers that apply 1.6 bar (24 PSI) of squeeze to the intercooled intake charge, and a direct injection system which employs piezoelectric injectors to spray fuel - including multiple pre- and post-combustion events - at a mind-boggling 2000 bar (30,000 PSI). A compression ratio of 16:1 and heavy use of exhaust gas circulation also help keep down the emissions, which meet the 2010 Euro-5 standard.


All that power is fed to an all-wheel-drive system that maintains a 40:60 front-rear balance to maintain what Audi refers to as "slightly tail-heavy, sporty handling characteristics. To slow nearly three tons of mass moving at superlegal velocities, a set of monstrous disc brakes are fitted (the diameter is unspecified, but the fronts appear to be somewhere north of 15"). The concept also carries an interior trimmed in impractical white leather and light-colored carbon fiber.


Yeah baby...Collapse )

Deets on Honda's "next-generation" untra-clean diesel (coming to the US within 3 years)...
CorporateSeptember 25, 2006
Honda Develops Next-Generation Clean Diesel Engine Capable of Meeting Stringent Tier II Bin 5 Emissions Requirements in the U.S.

September 25, 2006–Honda Motor Co., Ltd., announced it has developed a next-generation diesel engine that reduces exhaust gas emissions to a level equal to a gasoline engine. Honda’s next-generation diesel engine employs a revolutionary NOx catalytic converter that enables a great reduction in NOx emissions sufficient to meet stringent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Tier II Bin 5 emissions requirements (based on Honda’s internal calculations). This catalytic converter features the world’s first innovative system using the reductive reaction of ammonia generated within the catalytic converter to “detoxify” nitrogen oxide (NOx) by turning it into harmless nitrogen (N2).  




Honda Next-Generation Diesel Engine System

The new catalytic converter utilizes a two-layer structure: one layer adsorbs NOx from the exhaust gas and converts a portion of it into ammonia, while the other layer adsorbs the resulting ammonia, and uses it later in a reaction that converts the remaining NOx in the exhaust into nitrogen (N2). Ammonia is a highly effective reagent for reducing NOx into N2 in an oxygen-rich, lean-burn atmosphere. This ability to generate and store ammonia within the catalytic converter has enabled Honda to create a compact, lightweight NOx reduction system for diesel engines. The system also features enhanced NOx reduction performance at 200–300ºC, the main temperature range of diesel engines.

Honda designed the catalytic converter for use with its 2.2 i-CTDi diesel engine, which has earned widespread praise for quiet, clean operation and dynamic performance since its introduction in 2003 on the European Accord model. By further advancing combustion control, the 2.2 i-CTDi delivers cleaner exhaust to the NOx catalytic converter. Honda achieved this by optimizing the combustion chamber configuration, reducing fuel injection time with a 2,000-bar common rail injection system and boosting the efficiency of the EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) system. Thanks to these improvements, Honda has reduced the amount of NOx and soot normally found in engine exhaust, while increasing power output.

Great idea!
I thought I was alone, but not anymore! I'm working on my own bio-muscle machine. A 81 El Camino with a 6.2L diesel running on biodiesel. It's in the early stages of the project right now, I just got my engine. My goal to share my findings with the community so that gasser to diesel conversions become less of a taboo and easier for the average Joe to perform. In fact I could use some advice with my project, so any input comments or suggestions are always welcome.

Unrelated, but also worth noting, is my bio-diesel fueled hurricane generator. (Florida, meh.)

I have project details and pictures (coming soon) on my user page.

Audi diesel dominates Le Mans
Posted Jun 18th 2006 8:35PM by Stuart Waterman

Mission accomplished. The #8 Audi R10 of Frank Biela, Emanuele Pirro and Marco Werner fulfilled Audi's ambition of fielding the first non-gasoline-powered winner of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. In the process the trio set a record for the distance travelled by the winning car, narrowly beating the previous record set by an Audi R8. Despite a lengthy pit stop to replace the faulty fuel injection system, the pole-sitting #7 Audi of Kristensen, Capello and McNish managed a third-place finish in LMP1. The two Audi's bracketed the local fan-favorite Pescarolo team, whose C60 Judd-powered entry driven by Eric Helary, F1 driver Franck Montagny and WRC legend Sebastien Loeb trailed the winning Audi by four laps.

Honda to make clean diesels

Posted May 23rd 2006 6:32PM by Erin Mays
Filed under: Hybrids/Alternative, Japan, Honda
Automotive News reports that Honda is on its way to putting clean diesel on the market. We should see a four-banger coming our way by 2009, with a V6 to follow (Honda didn't mention when). Honda folks say that the engines will meet U.S. emissions standards -- and not just any standards... a standard known as Tier 2 bin 5. It might sound like a wine quality category (grand cru, anyone?), but what the designation really means is that Honda's planning on making the diesels meet some really stringent standards imposed upon diesel vehicles.

(more)



What's really interesting (Aside from the availability of a V6 version. VROOM!) is these engines were designed and built from the ground up by Honda's chief engine designer.
Honda reliability from a diesel.
Maybe a V8 will come with increased popularity.

I wonder if they'll sell the engines. Hmmm...

Toyota developing it's own biodiesel...
Toyota and Nippon Oil develop better biodiesel
16th May 2006

Toyota Motor Corporation and Nippon Oil are reported to have jointly developed a type of biodiesel derived from palm oil, which promises engine performance equal to that of mineral-based diesel. While biodiesel derived from feedstocks such as rape seed oil tend to be less energy-intensive than conventional diesel, Toyota and Nippon Oil have succeeded in extracting the oxygen from their fuel by injecting hydrogen at high pressure during the refining process. Nippon Oil expects to launch its new fuel commercially in the next four years, according to the Nihon Keizai Shimbun of 12 May.

Biodiesel officially cheaper than regular diesel...
Biodiesel now cheaper than regular diesel

5/2/2006, 1:20 a.m. PT
The Associated Press
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — While soaring fuel costs are the bane of most businesses, Oregon makers of biodiesel are celebrating. Their product now is cheaper than the stuff that comes out of the ground.

"We're selling our biodiesel for less than petroleum diesel out of the rack," said Tyson Keever of SeQuential Biofuels, the state's largest biodiesel producer. "Our phone is ringing off the hook as the (oil) price goes up," he told Portland's Daily Journal of Commerce newspaper.

Biodiesel sold for 20 to 30 cents a gallon more than regular diesel as recently as March. It is made from vegetable oil, including used oil from fast-food restaurants.

The blend B99, of 99 percent biodiesel with 1 percent diesel fuel, was $2.77 a gallon, two cents cheaper than regular low-sulfur diesel, Monday at Carson Oil in Portland.
Demand for the renewable fuel in the state has risen with oil prices, which many expect to keep climbing.

Carson Oil just arranged with a Minnesota producer to sell its soy-based biodiesel in Oregon.

It has reserved 15 million gallons a year, which it will bring into the region's first biodiesel terminal at the Port of Vancouver, Wash., just across the Columbia River from Portland.

In-state production is about 2 million gallons per year, according to SeQuential Biofuels.

In the past month SeQuential has sold out of biodiesel as fast as it can produce it.

The company broke ground April 17 for its own fuel station in Eugene and added three more pumps around the state last month. More are planned.

Small biodiesel co-ops are seeing an increase in membership as gasoline prices climb. Members of Go Biodiesel, a Portland co-op, pay $100 to join and work six hours a month for the right to buy pure biodiesel at $2.25 a gallon. The group has about 100 members.

"We see a lot more interest in people joining up in the co-op," said Brian Jamison, president of Go Biodiesel's board of directors.

Biodiesel distributors, heavily invested in building an infrastructure in Oregon, hope high oil prices will help them grow.

The cheaper price "will allow a lot of people to make that jump to biodiesel and feel comfortable about it," said Mark Fitz, general manager of Portland's StarOilco, one of Oregon's first distributors to offer biodiesel.

"When (oil) prices get this high, it's hitting agricultural users right below the belt," Fitz said. "We're delivering the biodiesel portion of (the blends) at cost, making less money than we would on normal diesel" to promote the fuel to farmers.

The dirty little secret about hybrids...
Interesting Reuters article about the true savings (or lack thereof) for hybrid vehicles.

Apparently, owning a Civic or Prius hybrid will only save you $400 and $300 respectively over a 5 year/75,000 mile period.
Other hybrids actually cost more to operate than equivalent gas models.


It's all about the diesel folks.

General Motors to bring range of diesels to U.S.?

Posted Mar 17th 2006 12:30PM by Joel Arellano
Filed under: Hybrids/Alternative, Green, GM
Is the world’s biggest automaker finally bowing to high-torque fans by bringing more diesel powerplants to the U.S.?

During a talk with the trade publication Automobilwoche, an unidentified GM manager was quoted as saying: “We are developing right now two highly modern diesel motors that won't just fulfill the Euro-5 emission standards, but (also) the more stringent Bin-5 regulations in the USA.”

The engines include a 2.9 liter V6 and a 4.5 liter V8. If the report is true, they would likely be rolled out in various GM vehicles starting in 2008.

Diesel and hydrogen... Not-so-strange bedfellows?...
On-board self-producing hydrogen injection systems are giving big diesel rigs more power and better mileage.

From Wired...

Truckers Choose Hydrogen Power

02:00 AM Nov. 15, 2005 PT

Hundreds of semitrailer trucks zipping along North American highways are now powered in part by hydrogen. These 18-wheelers make hydrogen as they go, eliminating the need for high-pressure, cryogenic storage tanks or hydrogen filling stations, which, by the way, don't yet exist.

These truckers aren't just do-gooders. They like Canadian Hydrogen Energy's Hydrogen Fuel Injection, or HFI, system because it lets them save fuel, get more horsepower and, as a bonus, cause less pollution.

"We're saving $700 a month per truck on fuel," said Sherwin Fast, president of Great Plains Trucking in Salinas, Kansas. The company tried the HFI system on four trucks and has ordered 25 more.

"Drivers like the increased power and noticed there is a lot less black smoke coming out of the stacks," said Fast.

HFI is a bolt-on, aftermarket part that injects small amounts of hydrogen into the engine air intake, said Canadian Hydrogen Energy's Steve Gilchrist. Fuel efficiency and horsepower are improved because hydrogen burns faster and hotter than diesel, dramatically boosting combustion efficiency.

"You get more work from the same amount of fuel," said Gilchrist.

The implications of this are very interesting.
Sounds like hydrogen injection could do for diesel what Nitrous Oxide does for gas, with benefits.

SUVs Still One-In-Four New Vehicles Sold In America; Carmakers Introducing More Fuel-Efficient Models

NEW YORK, Oct. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Despite pain at the pump, 56 percent of
Americans refuse to downsize and will stick with the wheels they've got,
according to a new survey by consultant AutoPacific. "We haven't turned into
wimps overnight," AutoPacific's George Peterson tells Newsweek in the October
10 issue (on newsstands Monday, October 3). "People still like a tough looking
SUV."

With gas at $3 a gallon, hybrid sales have soared while behemoths like the
Chevy Suburban have dropped dramatically, reports Detroit Bureau Chief Keith
Naughton. But hybrids represent just 1.3 percent of the U.S. auto market. The
real action remains in SUVs, which still account for one-in-four new vehicles
sold in America.

What has changed is that Americans are downsizing from XL models to more
modest SUVs, like the H3 and "crossovers" built on smooth-riding car chassis.
Chrysler is doubling its SUV offerings over the next three years, including
the radical Dodge Nitro model coming next year with flared fenders and fuel-
friendly V6. GM is counting on a new crop of full-bodied SUVs coming next year
to drive its comeback.

By 2010, the number of SUVs on the market will increase 27 percent to 109
models, while just 44 different hybrids will be offered by then, according to
auto researcher J.D. Power. By the end of this decade, J.D. Power predicts
hybrids will account for less than 4 percent of total auto sales. SUVs,
meanwhile, will grow from 24.6 percent to 26.6 percent. "For hybrids to have a
double digit market share," says J.D. Power's Jeff Schuster, "we'd essentially
have to run out of fossil fuel."



Basically, this reenforces the point I've been making all along.
Hybrids just won't cut it for the muscle enthusiast.
If we want to make a realistic move toward a sustainable fuel economy, diesels are the only option for that 56% of car-buyers.

The U.S. needs to recognize this and initiate more incentives for a biodiesel infrastructure along with the current push for hybrids (which should include diesel hybrids) and hydrogen technology.

There's not one solution, but that combination represents the best coverage of the various different car-buying mindsets.
