If the comment I was replying to is off-topic, then the one i replied to is as well.

The fact is other than describing it as 'liquid metal' they do not explain how it actually moves or where its actual processor is and how it communicates with the rest of its, for lack of a better term, 'mass'. We don't know what it looks like on a microscopic level, for all we know it *is* a ton of little nano machines. We certainly do not know any differently from that and the description in the movie isn't adequate enough to say I'm wrong.

You can get the BSOD back instead of reboot somewhere in the settings.

Even in 2005 you'd be waiting a long time to actually see either happen.

I ditched MS for Linux 10 years ago and will never go back to that bloated/slow POS they call an operating system.

Amusingly 'unstable' is not on that list.

I once programmed an arduino to move my mouse cursor in the shape of a square to keep my workstation from auto-locking per company policy. There's a slider control on the Arduino board that I have that I used more-or-less as an on-off switch. For fun I'd hook it up to my supervisor's machine just to hear him try to explain it to somebody.

The generation of random numbers is too important to be left to chance.
