This is the beginning of SkyNet.

Now, if it can calculate the airspeed of both unladen English and African swallows...hmmm...well, then, I welcome our silicon overlords.

I can honestly say that I have no freakin' idea what that's supposed to be. Is there audio commentary on it? I was watching it muted... maybe sounds will help me make sense of it...

This is awesome by the way.  I don't even begin to know the time and work that was put into this but I see so many possibilities that can come from this.  The first I thought of was use in A.I.  Wish this guy the best of luck.

I use to have a Prodigy account way back when the Internet was new and there was only a couple Dial Up ISPs available.

So does it play Crysis?

The skill and inclination required to learn such an architecture and spend hours implementing it in a game like this is just beyond words. I mean, if this is how he plays a game, imagine what kind of stuff he does in real life. Or, at least, what he *could* do. This will drive a few other enthusiasts to match his effort, perhaps, and soon enough we'll have a highly functional, efficient computer within a program. The beginning of recursive computation will open huge opportunities.

Not gonna lie... I thought that was pretty sweet.  Granted this is kind of a primitive thing he has set up here, but what are the chances someone at Intel or AMD or ARM sees this and runs this guy through some testing to see if he could be a fit on their crew?  For someone to take the initiative to do this he must really enjoy the minutiae of stuff and could be a valuable asset.

I feel like this guy is probably better at basic design than most of their engineers. That said, this thing isn't exactly a commercial product. It is really, really fucking awesome, though. I wonder when someone will port minecraft over to a computer in minecraft.

That almost sounds as bad as dividing by 0!

Umm.... I think that might be taking it to far.

Who knows what the consequences might be :)
