Comment What if... (Score 1) 312

What if there has been an error during the running of the game? If it doesn't crash/freeze at all, then are we talking about the brain's functionality or the absorbing of information? Unless, of course, you're saying that those AI games are related to education, then I'd go with yes because it has the contents/information necessary to learn about fields of science/knowledge.

Comment The main idea (Score 1) 334

None of you is getting the idea that the problem is that "none can predict where or when the next tsunami/earthquake will hit any area"

That's all I have to say and that's what I'm trying to tell you, ladies and gentlemen. You may have the controlling capabilities over your nuclear reactors, but you can't deal with their powerful effects of the natural disasters. The greatest example of all is that Japan has a lot of advanced technologies but they got hit unexpectedly.

Please can we all just recognise what is staring us in the face; nuclear power is the least worst option for all of humanity.

Least worst option? I'm pretty sure you're being sarcastic, and that you didn't see the news for a decade, e.g., Fukushima nuclear reactor, Google it.

No, man. I meant that he could've simply give some community service instead of losing his age, or even just work for them in order to improve "their" own security.
That's why I said "Fuck those judges"

Comment Opinions (Score 1) 510

Personally, I grew up learning the C-base programming language ( not C++) and, in these days, I'm learning Assembly language programming in x86 and x88 ( because they're identical to each other -- i.e., both is implemented with parallel processing, as far as I know of these two ).

Others might agree or disagree with me, depending on their experience, and the syntax implemented in each language they feel comfortable with.
Even though that I know some people will try to coerce me to learn Java ( in universities, especially ), I'm not leaving the C language behind because of it's capabilities that I'm familiar with ( I hate data classes because they're so mind-blowing, in my opinion ).

Others might even focus about the web developing and leaving the hardware issues we're dealing with under nowadays basis. For example, some told me "hardware programming has no future in it, while web developing has a great deal in the Internet". Well, I have to say that I agree with the deal in the Internet, but I would disagree with the point about the hardware, because the hardware is what eases our nowadays activities like phones, gaming gloves, additional interfaces in the mouse treated as tweaks ( specifically, World of Warcraft gamers demand such tweaks, some, if not all of them ), Network programming ( I recommend people to learn network programming from this book "Linux Network Programming", which is basically limited to Linux and it's done in C programming language ), Linux kernel programming ( Linus Torvalds is a great example here, seach for a book called "advanced Linux programming), and the head-mounted controller. So, there is a lot of hardware programming involved in here which I don't see how it's possible that it has no future.

I had friends who argued with me for only dealing with C/Assembly, but I'm just saying that I'm fine with those languages. However, if they disrespect my opinion about what language I want to use, then there is no need for me to listen to their opinions. The same issue goes with the BASIC programming language. Some people hate it, some people like it, according to their point of view which might be convincingly reasonable or plain lame. If it's the syntax, I can't see the problem with it, which is so far so good.

It's a good idea to make a comic about Steve Jobs. However, I think there should be comics about other people who had their effects in the computer fields like Steve Wozniak, Richard Stallman, Dennis Ritchie, Ken Thompson, Bjarne Stoustrup, Linus Torvalds, Charles Babbage, etc. Not only they're gonna be entertaining, but they're going to be educative to read about from children to even students in the universities.
