Blue Blu-ray

beswicks Same about the PS3. (396 comments)

Sony removing the vibrators from the PS3 controllers has clearly robbed the world of new and interesting uses and pushed back the development of Teledildonics, the bastards.

Oh well maybe these blue blu-rays are comparable with Bluedildonics? At least the PS3 has bluetooth.

(Yes I know that things other than PS3's can play the blu-ray).

Draughts Solved

beswicks beswicks writes  |  more than 7 years ago

beswicks (584636) writes "The BBC have posted a story about the solving of the ancient game of draughts by a Professor Schaeffer. Apparently, "It took an average of 50 computers nearly two decades to sift through the 500 billion billion possible draughts positions to come up with the solution."

However we should not be holding our breath for them to solve chess, "It has somewhere in the range of a billion billion billion billion billion possible positions, meaning that computers, with their current capacity, would takes aeons to solve it.""
