Does anybody knows if exosomes would be removed from the blood stream if the "biospleen" is used?

If I understand correctly then later on a wrapper for Directx 7/8 could be written on top of the directx 9 API in Gallium3D?

But if we get a glide warpper at the video card driver level, then Windows (and not only DOS) games can run with glide support.

It would be nice if such a wrapper for Glide was made part of the Gallium3D implementation. It would be even better if they used OpenGL 3/4 (to keep the level of emulation to a minimum since from what I have heard, modern video drivers emulate OpenGL 1/2) since nowadays most people have (at least) DX10/OpenGL 3 capable video cards.

It would be nice if support for Glide 2.1 and 3.0 be added also, there is a good chunk of oldies that would benefit and nowadays wine has dosbox built in, so even DOS games would be supported.

Now if this also applied to roms bought on the sony, nintendo or xbox store, then I would be a happy camper.

No doubt the NSA owns at least half of them.

This comment "A negative mass chasing a positive mass accelerates forever..." made me think, what if positive and negative mass were created equally at the start of our universe, they started chasing each other and THAT is what creates time?

If you can compress space to achieve warp speed, you can then also compress space to create waves in the vacuum.

The degree is corruption makes a world of difference (say, third world class difference).

Then this new substance could be used to warm up the martian atmosphere :)

While he was vacationing with his wife, Kuro5hin founder Rusty Foster was killed — at least in the eyes of Facebook. NBC News details how it happened: a "pal" pranked both Foster and Facebook by notifying the social site of Foster's supposed death, providing as documentation the obituary of another, much older man by the same name. Getting the Facebook version of his life back took some doing; based on this article it seems much easier to convince Facebook that you're dead than that you're alive.

mikejuk writes *"The Goldbach conjecture is not the sort of thing that relates to practical applications, but they used to say the same thing about electricity. The Goldbach conjecture is reasonably well known: every integer can be expressed as the sum of two primes. Very easy to state, but it seems very difficult to prove. Terence Tao, a Fields medalist, has published a paper that proves that every odd number greater than 1 is the sum of at most five primes. This may not sound like much of an advance, but notice that there is no stipulation for the integer to be greater than some bound. This is a complete proof of a slightly lesser conjecture, and might point the way to getting the number of primes needed down from at most five to at most 2. Notice that no computers were involved in the proof — this is classical mathematical proof involving logical deductions rather than exhaustive search."*

It is chibi, but further experiments are required to determine if it is kawaii
