Time and space, however empty it can be, is still "something". Thus, quantum events from minute perturbations is still "something".

Like I said, either the the universe/multiverse is infinite, or there was a genesis to it all. How, and why did this genesis event occur? THAT QUESTION in-of-itself is mind blowing.

Deeper. Where did that quantum event come from? At some point, everything came from zero (nothing). Unless however, the universe or multiverse is truly infinite.

I'm not saying you're wrong about there being a quantum event that started the Big Bang. However, it too has a point of origin of creation from nothing; does it not?

Not even. Just use a deadman switch. You just have a website that you log into once a day/week/month what-have you. I for any reason you fail to do so, the information is released publicly on the front page. If it's of any interest, the community will spread it via P2P and other methods; like wild fire.

You trust science. It's the observable truth. Faith, belongs to the realm of religion.

For example, I have blind faith that God exists, and the mere existence of *something* spawning from absolutely nothing (however many layers deep in a multi-dimentional abstract) came into being. Why did it happen? It's a philosophical question that science can't touch.

Getting this out of the way.

Science is the understanding of how the universe works. Faith, holds the supposition of why the universe exists both in its genesis and current state. The two don't overlap, and I personally find it rather funny when people try and debate a comparison to the two. To do so is like arguing about the hardness of fire. It makes no sense.

Who gives a flying fuck?! First time or not, the private sector has and does complicated software for a living. It in fact defines the industry. But somehow because the Federal Government is a clusterfuck, they deserve a pass with some grand prestigious comparison to Apollo 11 or 13? If that's the case, Google and the rest have already invented Warpdrive that can go to 8!

Has a hugely higher deductible (we went from $2,500 a year to about $12,000 a year)

Ours was initially $3000 a year for the family plan, then it went to $3,000 per person!. After the birth of our son 20 months ago, we ended up paying $6,000 in fees. 3k for pregnant wife, 3k and fees for my son's birth. 6k grand was considered a nice down payment for a house / car back in mid to late 1990's. Oh, except it's free if you're a fucking Mexican that's about to drop an anchor baby. They pay ZERO; it's you and I the tax payer that pays for it all, and then much more later on.

XP also tweaked the VM subsystem in a way that was quite noticeable if you had more than about 256MB of RAM (better performance), but the main feature it added was remote desktop (although only in the Pro version). I was quite tempted to upgrade from 2K for the remote desktop stuff.

I'm not a huge fan. The goal of D was to produce a better C++, but if you're designing a new language then C++ really isn't where I'd choose to start. It's not as bad as Ruby (I can't imagine the kind of person who would look at Smalltalk and say 'what this language really needs is Perl-like syntax'. Actually, I can't imagine the kind of person who'd say that about any language. Including Perl). Rust is probably the modern language that I like the most.
