Is this still on the table? I'm still quite interested.

I've been considering it, but family obligations have kept it from being a hard yes. One of these days I won't have to drive people everywhere.... one of these days... tongue.png

I'd defiantly be interested. I have a strong background in Web development and Database Management, and the majority of my experience in games has been implementing server-side scripting for games and modding, but I've been trying to move into C++/C# side of programming. I have some experience with java, but I'm still getting proficient with it(Again, most of my experience is contract-work debugging). Unfortunately, i'm lackluster in the art department, and most of the stuff I make qualifies as "programmer art".


I have a couple of big projects that are always on the go, but it would be nice to sit down with a group weekly, or even daily, and work on something like "one game a month". I'm not really sure that having a game complete every week, even with a team, is possible or feasible without each person putting in 9+ hours daily. How would you want to run it, here on GD or through Skype, or some other chat system? Any specific languages?

A nice little erratic binary system. Would have lasted longer if I didn't get so planet happy.




Speed this one up to 124x to see some neat, unintentional art. Yay gears!




Stable, Yet boring system where all the planets are in the same ring. Maxed out stable at 500 yrs, 1,024,000 points.

Information cannot travel faster than light.

I believe quantum entanglement is studied more for its applications in secure communication since observing the quantum thingies isnt possible by an outsider without the communicating parties noticing.


Information may be restricted to the speed of light, but quantum entanglement works on the action/immediate reaction of entangled particles. This "spooky action at a distance" does indeed happen faster then the speed of light, and the state changes are instantaneous - the problem is the amount of data able to be sent between a entangled pair is disgustingly small compared to the infrastructure you'd need to detect any changes in the atoms state at all.
