Re: 1683: "Digital Data"

Metal Gear Solid 2 made a pretty good case for why data loss is a good thing. The mapping of the human genome was completed early this century. As a result, the evolutionary log of the human race lay open to us. We started with genetic engineering, and in the end, we succeeded in digitizing life it...

That'd be Rome Sweet Rome. It has its own subreddit, as well as a movie deal. Dunno when it's coming out, though.

Re: 0962: "The Corliss Resolution"

There's a fun game out there inspired by BASE jumping if any of you are so inclined. It's called AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! - A Reckless Disregard for Gravity and it's just as fun and silly as the title sounds.

Re: 0841: Audiophiles

as a few of my audiophile friends have brought up… why would one need a RCA-3.5mm female-female plug? To plug the male xbox rca leads into the male 3.5mm stereo lead that most computer speakers have. I've actually done this. It works pretty well. However, I was impatient and couldn't wait for it to...

Re: Procedural archiver?

I'm still a geek-in-training (16 years old) so I don't know everything. Thus, I might not be saying what I think I'm saying. Anyway, from what I understand procedural generation doesn't actually compress anything. It tells the computer how to make the stuff you want. What I want to know is if we can...

Procedural archiver?

I haven't seen such a tool, though I think it would be very useful. Hell, a group made an FPS engine and a level using only procedural generation. Why can't we archive things this way? If not, why?

My desktop's nothing much. I do like the background, though. I think there's a topic on the TF2 fora that has a bunch of fanart and other stuff. That's where I found it. The installers are from a little incident a few days ago when I downloaded a ton of freeware games and mods for Half-Life 1 and fo...

Re: Need better antivirus

Tranks. I've decided to use Avast! By the way, the last time a trojan got into my computer, AVG managed to clean it up pretty easily. That is, after I downloaded it. I was lazy about installing the damn thing. Actually, AVG cleaned most of it up. There's nothing quite like having your clock read 11:...

Need better antivirus

Apparently AVG is using computers for spamming purposes. That is, computers with AVG installed on them. Not wanting our LAN to become a spambot, my dad took the liberty of installing McAfee. Apparently he couldn't find any better alternatives. Mind you, my dad's not exactly a luddite. He used to be ...

Good concept, but blatantly unrealistic; there aren't nearly enough tabs open.

If a database is destroyed by someone who has changed their name in such a way, has that person broken the law?
