Big whoop. People have been making much better products for ages. Don't need huge grants. Add bodily fluids and bake for 9 months. Might as well subsidize baby making with that research money. Probably will get more units out of money spent. What is the point of trying to make something as close to human as possible? Shouldn't they be trying to make something that does things humans can't do?
Google is not the solution for your programming domain inquries. Facebook is. You just need to get better friends.
which is why you make an enormous fresnel zone plate, except instead of drawing it on glass you carve/drill it into the earth. what's the wavelength of an earthquake shockwave? i'm going to start digging.
any crazy ideas on how to harness energy of triggered quakes? mine: carve a large pattern around the area to direct the quake at a giant pendulum which will then swing the gays straight... and the straights gay. for science!
What he said. It sucks. Buy something fun with your money. Like a hooker.
HL7 = cow dung. Thousands of pages of documentation to define code values and what they mean. That's not a protocol. It's just a list of values. If HL7 had any elegance to it, it might pass for a protocol. As it is, it's just a pile of shit for which you have to pay hundreds of dollars just to read the description of every undigested leaf of grass and the amorphous goo that holds them together.
SnT2k writes "Adobe recently released the beta version of Alchemy which compiles C/C++ code into AS3 bytecode (which runs on AVM2) that can run on the Flash or Flex platform and boasts increased performance for computationally-intensive tasks (but still slower than native C/C++). It was demonstrated last year during the Chicago MAX 2007 to run Quake. A few months later it has been demonstrated to run a Python interpreter and Nintendo Emulator. One interesting tidbit is that the thing is built upon the open source LLVM Compiler Infrastructure."
Depends on how old you are and whether they wear those outfits during the day.
