I really wanna get an 8 core system. I was very disapointed when I found out Intel Ivy Bridge is only going to be 4 core, with the rest of the die wasted on a crappy gpu. I think servers are the only real option for 8 core, what setup are you getting? How much you paying?
i bought the book for my stepdad for christmas it's available for free online.
the singularity is among the most compelling possibilities for a non-dystopian (i.e. utopian) future of humanity, in which we all transcend this squishy substrate to become a combined post-human entity, that hopefully gets to see the end of the universe through acting in unison towards a common destiny (at fucking last! certainly the present political system won't get us there...)
btw, i'm moving to newcastle, england next year. i still hold ambitions of doing some media work together someday, the realistic chance of which seems to be improving
btw, all the devs in my gallery were made with (only) my programs.
you're one of the people i would've liked to beta test my new flame rendering app, but development on that has stalled with this new 3d renderer i might pick it up again after exams finish in november.
it's rendered with my old 3d fractal rendering app, from june/july 2006 (when i first started collaborating with *Aexion). you can check a render made with my new one here: [link] (my next deviation is gonna rock it, which is why that one is in scraps )
