Re: 2061: "Tectonics Game"

I'd say the bigger question is, is hibernation allowed? For large-scale simulations that take months+, this is a somewhat popular option. You need to change out your hardware (or clean your fans, or whatever)? Just hibernate, now all your state is saved to disk. Make your changes, turn it back on, y...

Re: 1989: "IMHO"

Okay but SQL is and always will be "Squirrel" to me. Especially given that "squirrel" is also a verb meaning "to store away for later retrieval", it's too fitting for a database system not to be used.

Re: 1758: "Astrophysics"

I'm just gonna copy & paste what I sent to my dad when he asked me to explain the recent paper, since several others since they also asked me. It's probably got a least couple technical errors but I did my best. So the idea is built on something people have been mulling over the last few years, ...

Re: 1489: "Fundamental Forces"

As someone who doesn't actually know much physics, but is trying -- Electromagnetism is special as "one" force because it doesn't require energy to convert from one to the other. The equivalence between the two is just dependent on frame of reference -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moving...

It's much easier for me to cut it in half than it would be for you to double it back up again afterwards. If I'm only here 1/10th as much as you I'll still multiply my advantage over you tenfold! MUAHAHA

And "rire", which is rot13 for "ever".
