Opportunities From the Twilight of Moore's Law

dorianh49 Re:Unlikely (148 comments)

I may be wrong, but I thought Moore's law was specifically referring to the manufacturing process, and not performance. So, Moore's law can retire and performance can still improve. They're not mutually exclusive.

Do You Want Best Buy Opening Your New Laptop?

dorianh49 Re:Why.... (543 comments)

Vostros are still better built than Inspirons, Dell's true consumer line. Vostros are more of a "prosumer" or "home/business" class laptop. I bought one for my wife that is still going very strong almost 3 years after purchasing it. Nothing is loose or falling apart. Meanwhile, friends and associates who bought Inspirons (I warned them) are experiencing build-quality issues right and left. But, buy a Dell Latitude, or Lenovo Thinkpad T-series, or HP Elitebook, or Panasonic Toughbook if you want a laptop to last.

Monty Python Members Reunite For Chapman Film

dorianh49 Stop that, stop that... (55 comments)

... much too silly. Right! Now, nobody likes a good laugh more than I do, expect perhaps my wife... and some of her friends. Oh, yes, and Captain Johnson. Come to think of it, most people like a good laugh more than I do, but that's beside the point. Now! Let's have clean, healthy commenting.

dorianh49 Re:Any 'learning' bots? (113 comments)

It's just a matter of getting the bot to play tic-tac-toe against itself. Unfortunately, it may not see the point of engaging in any "war" games after that.
