Another team tried it with Star Wars discs and coundn't reproduce the effect.
I learned to program on PLATO. It was an AMAZING system. In addition to supporting a variety of development environments, their system used a proprietary language called TUTOR. A good bit of networking technology today is derivative of this amazing system. I wasn't rich, although I noted a lot of kids who had access to PLATO tended to be children of CEOs and such. My parents worked at a college that had a grant to have the terminals available. The games on the system were also amazing.
As a programmer, PLATO was a great example of the "cloud"-type systems that will eventually become standard.. what Google is doing and Adobe is now proposing was done in the 70s at Plato, with centrally-hosted apps that routinely are updated automatically. As developers we could put in requests for program features and see them reflected in newer versions of the API. 512x512 resolution, touch sensitive screens, multi-player, real-time games between people all over the world..... in the 70s.
By the way, the original PLATO system has been ported and is running over TCP/IP. If you're willing to donate to the project, they have been known to grant access to people wanting to experience what it was like. See: http://www.cyber1.org/
By the way if anyone has the archive of the PLATO game 0drygulch.. PLEASE contact them... we've been dying to find that code and put it online.
You have interesting ideas for sure. Have you considered making a long, rambling and alarmist youtube video?
The corporate-friendly Slashdot sucks.
Sounds like you, for one, don't welcome our new bitcoin & Tesla pimping overlords.
God is preparing to smite New Gomorrah.

In China a lot of dinosaur fossils are sold in medicine shops. For some reason most Chinese still believe eating them cures disease and give you manly vigor.
Whereas in fact manly vigor comes from driving a dinosaur-sized truck that guzzles fossil fuel.
something from nothing, or at least the physical from the non-physical. Lets all just admit that there is a single Holy God, who created the physical universe as we know it. He has always, and will always exist in spirit (non physical). For reasons unknowable to us He decided to create the physical universe - logically there is no other possibility.
Invoking an uncaused god to "explain" an uncaused universe doesn't do anything except add a middle man, and ultimately leaves *more* unexplained than before.
Then you were unknown; now you're universally known as The Bad Pianist.
We don't celebrate DST in Tucson, but all my distant suppliers etc. do, so I have to adjust my mental clock to deal with their different offsets.
I'm the opposite: *I* don't use DST, and I have to spend most of the year reminding myself that "those idiots" think it's an hour later than it is.
lots of victims wait until the time is right.
Right. Then they fake a video as "evidence" that it happened.
Something similar showed up in my mailbox a couple times.. dont recall which group sent it though.
You mean you read that crap?
We're in an interglacial, still in same ice age.
As someone who was out there in the gulf documenting the effects of the spill, I'm disappointed that there is no actual details or data or maps indicating where actually the oil is located? Where are the details?
Ignoring crackpots isn't always safe. Anti-vaccination crackpots have gotten a lot of people sick or dead.
(The question is, how do you know whether any particular flavor of crackpot is harmful or harmless.)
