    Question number 2 (02/25/05):

    Almost all of the world's silicon, from which diodes, transistors and chips are made, is processed using a method developed by who? Give me the name and the year it happend.

    Question number 3 (02/26/05):

    The Arpanet and the Internet can't function without packet-switching. They are also considered a "distributed network". Who invented both packet-switching and distributed network, and what year was he born?

    Question number 4 (02/27/05):
