When they get that All-in-one computing device down to the size of my cell phone and it'll run Crysis at 60 fps I am so there!
Colonization, Orbital power generation, Mining asteroids and all other space endeavors are pretty much a pipe dream until we can find a reasonably affordable way to leave this sucking rock. So why don't all the geniuses get together and figure that one out first. Safe and affordable launch, Space elevator or Anti-gravity, whatever the means. Make it easy to get of the planet first, then we can get down to the business of exploration and exploitation.

I work at a large Zoo with many interactive kiosks. So I can tell you one thing, 8 year old boys are your enemy. If your hardware can survive them, you'll be in good shape.

Descent hooked me on PC gaming, I spent hours and hours in the mines. This one definitely needs to climb back from the ashes.
No I think it's based on a Tom Swift book I read in Elementary school, this one: http://www.amazon.com/Tom-Swift-Race-Moon-Adventure/dp/B0007E816Y/ref=sr_1_15?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1245126163&sr=1-15
I'm into AA, CODWaW, Combat Arms, Crossfire and other FPS online games. And my problem with them is that I cannot seem to compete on the same level with the people running $3,500.00 rigs, X-fi sound cards, Mega graphics cards running in crossfire or SLI, and all the other advantages they can afford that I cannot. I'm running a two year old rig I spent $1,000.00 on and I know I'm not getting the same resolution, frame rates and sound that they get. I would just like to see someone come up with a way to balance the equipment advantage.
