Tmp2 / Aaron Douglas lets slip a MAJOR spoiler about the show

Not for quite a loooooong while, I'm optomystic not naive of course. :D
You make a great point there Enki, "What Kurzweil wants" is certainly the stuff of fantasy.
We are quite a long way from even knowing what mass really is.
Right now we have no complete unified theory either to make it work.
The LHC is supposed to help us even attempt to complete our charting of elements and particles.
And surely there will be some pretty horrible corruptions of the technologies required to get there to impede any social acceptance. We have tools that are only giving us idea's but comparatively crude to even consider a leap so far in imagination. It is fiction, day dreaming, philosophical posturing. The end result will not be exactly what was imagined but portions will somewhat resemble the concept. We already have Dick Tracy wrist watch cell phones available. Comparatively look at the size of the ENIAC goliath in Philadelphia and its capabilities compared with the latest desktop available to the general public. Most of what is common knowledge by most kids today in manners and social behaviour would abhor many people 50 or more years ago as well.
I just find it an optymistic curiosity with some basis of eventuality.
The biological control in DNA and RNA would have just as unbeleivable amounts progress to be made as well.

Ever heard of Vanadium Batteries?

There is quite a bit of technology working towards the matter.
Of course most of what we have today was impossible 50 years ago.
Software will likely be the limiting factor until that point.
Chronology doesn't really matter in terms of Kurzweils concept.
It isn't a perfect road map but a pattern of evolutionary insight.
Our brians are a series of electrical impulses just waiting for us to muck about until we begin breaking the barriers of mapping what we feel is our soul or essence.
It could be centuries but hey, for our enjoyment in less than 100 years we created the web, automobiles, mass transit systems.....
I'm just a bit less skeptical about the human side of aspiring to immerse themselves into technology.

Oh I've read the Kurzweil paper on the Singularity, I have to say its one of those concepts that have a bit of inevitability provided we don't entirely wipe ourselves out which is much less likely than the evolutionary outcome. But we're human we can manage some seriously screwed up situations while paying attention to other things :D
Major catastrophe's can always diminish technological progress. But it still picks up the pieces and continues. One of the reasons I liked RDM's spin on the Cylon race.

I'm crossing my fingers for the 2012 race.
These guys are really interesting, albeit they are not the usual go with the flow types.

I still wait for the day we have the Schwartzeneggar/Ventura ticket.
The satire alone would actually draw public attention to the political arena.
If nothing else draw interest to negotiations....

I just went through a box of old stuff this weekend, found all of my retail CD's for FreeSpace, FreeSpace 2, Descent II, Descent 3, plus some add on packages...
Curious to check them all out again. I remember buying them and not having a strong enough PC for some of it, didn't know where they had disappeared to.

I can respect McCain, but with the Bush legacy in place, I don't see McCain lasting through enough terms to make a difference. McCains running mate just doesn't imbibe enough hope as a backup. Lets face it, we need a practically sociopathic leadership. Someone who retreated to Alaska doesn't exactly give me the feeling of her being equipped to handle the spotlight as a leader for a global economic country. We as Americans are looking at all sorts of nonsense spin on the Real Estate speculation bail out while the criminals who made the money took it and ran to leave us to clean up the mess. Personally I don't see the bail out being a solution but just adding to the problem and white wash to cover the turd these idiots left behind. I would rather see the younger candidate and his running mate in office. I would rather see younger mistakes than older ones. Regardless, it is going to be a difficult office to hold let alone be successful with. We're over in Iraq cleaning things up as best we can and Iraq wants to build a giant ferris wheel with 76 billion dollars they just happen to have laying around..... Hey, how about policing your damned country instead of shirking the responsibility to us and blaming us like children.... ah enough, this isn't a political board and I need to STFU... :D

Could be entirely misleading too. Filming could have been completed but they could edit scene chronology enough to change the outcome entirely. This many months later, the actors could have a completely different idea of how things played out while the producers have time to second guess what they assembled with hindsight and add more finishing touches.

Ah you can build a system just over a grand that will play a lot of these.
A quad-core 2.4 , 2 gb ram, a 512 MB 9800 GT, a 500 GB SATA drive.

Kewl so the trip is a go. I don't see how much this can really spoil it though. Far too mamny inner workings for the characters yet and in no way tells us how they approach the situations depicted by the final episode shots.

How do I get new ship pof's into FRED?
It kept crashing when I tried import....

Freespace 2 MODing / Thrusters for ships.tbl question?
« on: September 22, 2008, 11:46:15 PM »
Is there any graphical means in a modeling program (helpers, subobjects aliased, etc..) to setup thrusters for ships tbl?
Also is there a way to make a graphic flip with Lithunrwap? (reverse text)

Those will be in the finalized releases m8.
The FreeSpace Open engine needs finalized for version 10 to add the necessary content for the missions sarrounding the cap ships. The final release isn't planned much more than after the last episode of BSG airs from what the Dev team has already posted.
