  1. I've been meaning to try it for awhile. What's your username/display name?
  2. All they're doing is telling certain receptors in the visual cortex to activate. The way they will do it is by injecting DNA with the necessary code to make them light-sensitive (not the nodes in your eyes, but rather the controlling nerve tissue). If done right, you can make an image or pattern if you shoot light at them. When you push against your eyes, and see patterns/light, you're stimulating your nervous system into activating similarly.
  3. Companies like Lenovo always try to walk the line when it comes to bloat/ad/spyware, looks like Lenovo just crossed it.
  4. Oh wow, I had no idea about that. I always thought there was some sort of abstraction layer that made them semi-interoperable with additional nodes. I mean, they probably exist in special applications, but I didn't know they weren't in public use.
  5. Obviously people take their experiences with them to Mars, and it will be colored to wherever they were born and raised, or were living previously. I think in the long term (definitely not just 4 people, a ton more) culture and religion will definitely play a part. Nationality is only a generic secondary (almost redundant) idea that will only be loosely applied, probably forgotten other than in it's ties to certain other cultural memes. A great read for this is the book Red Mars, by Kim Stanley Robinson. In the book, nationality plays a large part but only because corporations from various nations got involved (a possibility, but only muuuuuch later), while Religion and often nationalistic cultural memes follow closely. IE: People from Japan will celebrate various holidays while people from other countries will not.
  6. Is that Second Life?
  7. Hey fellow tech!
  8. Welp, no one is safe now. Great way to avoid this is probably to build RAID arrays out of other storage types.
  9. I think that's an awful lot of speculation just based on media type. You should stick to the basics instead of analyzing industry decisions. - System architecture might change a bit if CD's weren't used, but fundamentally would have stayed the same. Advances in processing power happened independently of the media used. - One of the biggest effects of staying with cartridges is lower NVRAM compared to a CD/DVD. You can cram a lot more data on an optical disk than you can a cartridge (of that time period). A good example of this being used on a legacy system was the Sega CD, which is an optional external disk drive for the cartridge-based Sega Genesis System. - Conversely, sticking with cartridges would give system builders a head start in terms of performance, as the Flash memory industry exploded in the 90's, with faster R/W speeds to boot. Switching to optical media definitely impacted R/W speeds (dem loading times) and in some instances could cause games to stutter (on old systems). - Something to also consider is the reliability of solid-state media. Sure, the cartridge port itself can break, but cartridges were built like tanks. We all know how fragile optical disks are. This might change how end users see the media. That's my thoughts on the matter. Industry choices might branch out from these basic concepts.
  10. Business

    I don't quite agree with Weps 100% (I'm all for taking your kids to the gun range, and making sure they know all about gun safety. If they like it, I'd let them pursue it as an interest. I wouldn't jumpstart their interest myself, but I wouldn't try to stop it either.) but yeah, blurring/removing the gun is really stupid and doesn't accomplish anything. I mean, I agree lessening the amount of gore/blood/voilent looking things that a child can easily access, but that's more like bloody guts explosions and rape scenes... removing screenshots that contain guns does nothing, it's an object. There's also a billion other readily-available places to "see a gun" or violence, further reducing the intended goal of this thing. I do know of a few kids, though, that are obsessed with guns in a manner that's a bit weird (not even a hobby, and they've never held one). For instance one of my cousins, aged 8, is well known to the family to be really weirdly obsessed with guns in general. If he sees one on TV or in a game, he goes nuts and usually winds up hurting someone/himself. He very often pretends to shoot everyone around him for hours, until he gets tired. Everyone in the family knows: don't show him guns, talk about them, or even turn your hand into a gun (that index finger + thumb thing) around him. Obviously, the kid has some sort of mental or behavioural issue, and shouldn't really be on an "app store" in the first place without supervision. That said, no one else (barring any behavioural issues) is going to have a problem with seeing that stuff.
  11. Garry's Mod DarkRp. Yeah I know, it's pretty terrible.
  12. No one needs to prove anything but yourself. Until something scientific is proven, it is to be assumed false. Here, just to humor you, Google Scholar has papers on the topic: https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=behavioural+genetics+race You will see a blend of opinions, even some that support what you're saying (Although, they are full of pseudoscience and assumptions themselves. One is even described as "racist trash", which sounds great for you to read). The division in conclusion is because this is what the scientific community looks like when the hypothesis has not been proven to the extent of theoretical means. There is no evidence (proof) strong enough to unify any explanation that says behavioural genes are exclusive to any ethnicity. All I asked was that you prove the thing you're asserting. Any less than that, and anyone can assume that you just made it up. If you truly believe what you've posted, you should have actually researched it before posting, as it's a scientific claim. I'll admit, though, that maybe I jumped the gun in expecting you to value the scientific process (such as the fact that no one really needs to prove a negative before the positive assertion is proven). I don't disagree with, or doubt any of that. What I do disagree with is your (self-admittedly made up) presumption that it has anything to do with ethnicity. "Common knowledge" and "common experiences" is not valid scientific data. You've also basically admitted that you are wrong in a scientific sense. Until you can prove a scientific claim, in a fashion acceptable in a scientific process, it's only an imaginary hypothesis (and it's definitely not science).
  13. Weird... They are basically just links to this folder: http://mars.933industries.com/miscfiles/Linus/ Can you load that?
  14. Why? I take too many photos of my cat. Someone has to see them!
  15. I worked on a project for a few years about zombies in space. It was in the Cube 2 engine (Sauerbraten) and didn't really go anywhere.
