Why not doit on top of mount everest then?

http://g.co/maps/ugkwm as you can see in this link it is almost at the equator level and would be able to have a 360 look of the universe, and i bet it is a nice place to have a telescope. and im gessing that it would not be that hard to run some fiber optics or even a wireless link could be made, it could be operated remotly from some confy office.

Do you really belive that if pot where legal, it will cost that much? where i live pot is around 200 USD the kilogram, how much does it cost in the USA?

If Pot is made legal the price should drop conciderably. and yes, you could make a lot of money with legal pot.

Yes, but in my opinion, they could have made a lot of money whit those IP address, i mean, if they are yours, you can sell them, lets say 1 Dollar each one, that's, 3 +2 = 5 -4 = 1 ..... 16 Megadolars :D not bad. What about the other big companies, will they give it for free.

On the other hand, they would worth nothing after IPV6 is completely adopted and giving them away now could benefit you with the karma (public image) of your company. but we all know that IPV6 will take a really long time before it actually gains some kinetic movement.

Meet NELL, the Computer That Learns From the Net 272 272

bossanovalithium writes "Carnegie Mellon University has taught a computer how to read and learn from the internet. According to Dennis Baron at the Oxford University press blog, the computer is called NELL and it is reading the internet and learning from it in much the same way that humans learn language and acquire knowledge. Basically by soaking it all up and figuring it out. NELL is short for Never Ending Language Learner and apparently it is getting brainier every day."

Duke Nukem Forever Back In Development 356 356

An anonymous reader writes "'Always bet on Duke.' It seems he was right about himself, at least. The longest, most storied in-development game in history seems like it's finally going to be released by Gearbox Software sometime within the next year. 'According to Pitchford, Gearbox began finishing Duke Nukem Forever in late 2009. "Clearly the game hadn't been finished at 3D Realms but a lot of content had been created," he says. "The approach and investment and process at 3D Realms didn't quite make it, and it cracked at the end. With Gearbox Software we brought all those pieces together. It's the game it was meant to be." The game is currently expected to ship in 2010 although given its history Pitchford is understandably reluctant to be more specific.'"

I could not agree more whit you, but i think if that happened Intel and AMD would be out of bossiness or can someone explain me why window 7 requires 2 GB of ram, core 2 duo and all that fancy new hardware to almost the same that windows 98 and windows 98 required only 256 Mb and a 350 MHz CPU?

Many people are unenthusiastic about their work.
