  Discover Solid: Solid, The KDE Hardware Library
Solid will be tested again and again, to ensure the most bug safe behavior, because network and portable devices are things the user specially wants to just work.
Solid could also be used for more extensive changes.
Many KDE applications are already aware of hardware and networks to some extent, but with Solid this awareness could become far more pervasive and robust.

Solids are usually hard because their molecules have been packed together.
In the same way that a solid holds its shape, the atoms inside of a solid are not allowed to move around too much.
This is one of the physical characteristics of solids.

  Solid article - Solid matter atoms molecules phase spatial ordering kinetic energy - What-Means.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Within a solid, atoms/molecules are relatively close together, or "rigid"; however, this does not prevent the solid from becoming deformed or compressed.
In the solid phase of matter, atoms have a fixed spatial ordering; because all matter has some kinetic energy, the atoms in even the most rigid solid move slightly, but this movement is "invisible".
Solid state chemistry overlaps both of these fields, but is especially concerned with the synthesis of novel materials.

 Platonic solid - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
At each vertex of the solid, the total, among the adjacent faces, of the angles between their respective adjacent sides must be less than 360°.
Two-dimensional images of each of the Platonic solids are found within Metatron's Cube, a construct which originates from joining all the centres together from the Flower of Life.
In terms of the "variation in altitude" (the ratio between the radius of the circumscribed sphere and the radius of the inscribed sphere), the Platonic solid that best fits the sphere is a tie between the icosahedron and the dodecahedron.

 AllRefer.com - solid (Physics) - Encyclopedia
solid, one of the three commonly recognized states in which matter occurs, i.e., that state, as distinguished from liquid and gas, in which a substance has both a definite shape and a definite volume.
Solids resemble liquids in having a definite volume, but differ from both liquids and gases in having a definite shape.
The molecules of a solid, like those of a liquid, are very close together, but whereas the molecules of a liquid are free to move around, those of a solid have less thermal energy and are held fixed in their places by intermolecular forces.

One of the main characteristics of solids is that they hold their own shape.
In the same way that a solid holds its shape, the atoms inside of a solid are not allowed to move around much.

 Solid Angle | Steradian
The value of the solid angle is numerically equal to the size of that area divided by the square of the radius of the sphere.
The solid angle is the quantitative aspect of the conical slice of space, that has the center of the sphere as its peak, the area on the surface of the sphere as one of its spherical cross sections, and extends to infinity.
The maximum solid angle is ~12.57, corresponding to the full area of the unit sphere, which is 4*Pi.

 Law-breaking liquid defies the rules (September 2004) - News - PhysicsWeb
Solids usually melt when they are heated, and liquids turn into gas, although exceptions do exist when heating leads to chemical changes that cannot be reversed, such as polymerisation.
Neutron-scattering studies revealed that the solid phase is a "sol-gel" system in which the formation of hydrogen bonds between the αCD and the 4MP leads to an ordered, rigid structure.
The team has found a number of cyclodextrine/pyridine systems that also become solid when heated, and is now looking more closely at the structure of the sol-gel system to understand the solidification mechanism in more detail.

 Metal Gear Solid Encyclopedia Article, Definition, History, Biography   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Metal Gear Solid, (Japanese:メタルギアソリッド) commonly abbreviated as MGS, is a stealth-based game developed by Konami and first published for the PlayStation video game console in 1998, the third canonical game in the Metal Gear series produced and directed by Hideo Kojima, with artwork by Yoji Shinkawa.
Metal Gear Solid's score was composed by a number of in-house musicians at Konami, including Kazuki Muraoka, composer of the NES version of the original Metal Gear.
One of the most drastic differences between the original script and Blaustein's was the fact that Mei Ling only quoted Chinese proverbs in the Japanese version, whereas in the English script, she also quoted from western authors and literature.
