Comment OK, please remember it's time travel! (Score 1) 1270

And not space travel, so unless you're already where you want to be, there's no use in being able to be when you want to be.

Especially if you're going as far back as to be in a time where long distance travel would be hard, time-consuming, or right down impossible.

If I'm nitpicking, please blame The Big Bang Theory, season 1, episode 14.

Comment Re:2.5 terabytes capacity? (Score 1) 129

The technology, which has already sparked interest from companies such as BT and IBM, is already in its first phase and boasts an impressive 2.5 terabytes capacity, double the capacity of the London phone system.

Meh, my hard drive can store almost that much already.

You're kidding right? Obviously the writer meant that there is 2.5TB/second capacity. We are not talking about storage, we are talking about bandwidth. No one has 2.5TB/second bandwidth in use right now.

He most certainly is. But the summary does not say TB/s, just Terabytes. One would expect a "nerd news" website to watch out for this kind of mistake.

But then again, typos, dupes, slashvertisements, and daily "not news", who am I kidding...

I'm not even a sports fan, and even I know that people who follow sports do so for entertainment, excitement, and camaraderie.

Right on. I'm an engineer, and I don't use Twitter, but trying to make sense of things that are purely emotional is bullshit.

On a lighter note, that comment of yours has to be the most Sheldon-Cooper-esque comment on Slashdot right now.
