Mathematical Model Suggests That Human Consciousness Is Noncomputable

drxenos Re:Physically impossible (426 comments)

No. All Turing complete means is a universe Turing machine can execute anything any other Turing state machine can. People misunderstand "Turing complete" can think it means someone that is Turing complete can do "anything." That is NOT what it means.

Lost Star Wars Footage Found On LaserDisc

Sigh. I didn't have an issue with identifying myself. I just thought it would be beyond hubris to karma whore on an article I submitted.

Lost Star Wars Footage Found On LaserDisc

drxenos Re:footage (157 comments)

Yeah, I guess it is. The intent of my sig. was that people that use the AC system to be abusive and rude, suck. I posted the You Tube link and the follow ups as AC, because I didn't want to comment on a story I, myself, submitted. I only planned to supply the link that was stripped from my submission (and I didn't want to be modded up for it).

Experiment Will Determine Dinosaur's Skin Color

drxenos Re:cold blooded (98 comments)

Yes, there is evidence. There is evidence that dinos sat on their eggs. A cold-blooded creature would not do that.

Neil Young Pushes Pono, Says Piracy Is the New Radio

drxenos Re:FLAC (361 comments)

So, *that's* why! Thank you. I've always wondered why, when I rip CD tracks of songs that flow into the next (like a lot of Floyd albums) into MP3s, there is a noticeable break between songs that shouldn't be there. FLAC doesn't have this problem. I've always thought it was because of the compression MP3s use.

Looking To Better Engines Instead of Electric Vehicles

drxenos Re:Please explain (570 comments)

I never said it was a boxer engine. I just asked how they differ. Watching the video doesn't help me. As I said, I'm not a car guy. I'm a solid-state kind of guy. I am not good with moving parts. I don't think it's a bad thing to be able to ask questions.

One thing you can do, which is what I ALWAYS do, is go into add/remove programs. For office, there is an entry to completely uninstall ALL the animated helpers!

THX Caught With Pants Down Over Lexicon Blu-ray Player

drxenos Re:Oppo is a really solid player. (397 comments)

I too have an Opp upscaling DVD player (DV-980H). I always read comments like yours about skipping the normally unskippable clips (UOP) with an Oppo, but I can never figure out how. Can you tell me was the magic is?

The best pizza I have ever had, I found ...

drxenos Re:Shakey's, dagburnit! (920 comments)

I hate calzones, but I think you mean Stromboli, which I do like. California style is OK, but I fine it a little TOO thin for my tastes.
