Believe reports about Next Gen Computer and API Performance?

24 February 2015 - 02:45 AM



There has been a lot of press releases and discussions about both computer and API performance jump in the next generation. Do you believe it and why?


I am asking both in philosophical and technical thoughts on these issues.


(Overdue if true, in my opinion)






To Mars or The Moon?

03 February 2015 - 08:49 PM



Should humanity make a substantial effort towards Mars or the Moon?  I have an answer, but I am curious about how people feel toward space progress.




Disk Partition Security for Game Dev

29 December 2014 - 08:24 PM



I was thinking about making a disk partition for trying some of the "risky" software out there for game development purposes.  Obviously the potential purposes are far too long to list here, covering almost any category.


My system for the PC that I want to use for this is Windows 7.


How secure and safe is it to experiment with software in a separate partition for the job?  ... perhaps with its own operating system (Maybe Linux?) What are the odds that malware will circumvent the partitions?

Drones Move the Laser Industry

20 October 2014 - 09:47 AM



There is continuous arms race among opposing weapons technologies. I am wondering how the world will be in the arms race of this century. The USA Pentagon has the approval to push the envelope in developing and deploying technologies which are defensive and hopefully effective.  An example is the anti-ballistic missile shield technologies. There are already operational high power lasers aboard large jet aircraft.


Will we see a time when all airborne means of carrying weapons will be extremely vulnerable to being shot to the ground? Are we seeing the beginning of the dominance of defensive weapons to control the air?

Fusion Energy Source Advancement - News Today!

15 October 2014 - 09:58 AM

Hi,                                                                                                                                                                             2014, October 15, Wednesday


Today Lockheed Martin, the USA Pentagon's largest supplier, announced a break in the research to develop the first practical fusion reactor. The first working lab version would be developed and tested, expected to be functioning in about 1 year. A prototype could be ready in about 5 years.


Lockheed says that the reactor section could be towed by a large truck with main component size measuring about 7 feet by 10 feet.  The output could be as high as 100 megawatts.  


The immediate implications are that viable fusion power is only around the corner. The fusion reactor could economically provide energy for a city or for other major applications such as large ships.


My personal view is that this advancement will enable permanent colonization of space in the foreseeable future, as well.


If this is real, then it would be one of the most important advances in human history!
