    Arthur Bryant's BBQ pork burnt ends and sliced pork, Jack Stack's cheesy corn bake, green beans, and an old school banana split. Boulevard unfiltered wheat beer to drink, a shot of Kirschwasser as a digestive, and French press kopi luwak with my banana split.

    Any fruit you do not like?

    Bringing out the Titan early in the Fruit Wars, eh?

    I have no idea why they had to have two. It seems a bit unoriginal. At the very least they should have been divided longitudinally and named East/West since that is how the tribes delineated themselves.

    Should we rename South Dakota Chippewa?

    I was going to say a better camera lens but I like your idea better.

    Does more than 8GB RAM actually make a difference on a Win 7 64 bit machine?

    Unless you have that ridiculous Starter version then yes, with caveats. Premium will address 16 gig and Pro/Ultimate will do 192. Of course it will do no good if you do not run applications that can use that much memory or a lot of applications at once that cumulatively can use that amount of memory. I believe W8 takes the gloves off and gives you access to several TB, not that you would ever need it. (I remember saying that about 256MB of memory).

    If you have a gigabyte of memory free when you are using your PC in a normal fashion there is no need to buy more.

    Moore's Law, accelerating or decelerating?

    Decelerating I think. But that is more of a gut feel than anything.


    Quantum computers: much ado about nothing or misunderstood?

    Quantum computing is the next great leap forward and the one that will make machines finally be able to compute in a non-linear fashion, which is arguably where the concept of creativity resides.

    So, both and neither. Once it becomes a non-exotic reality then the world changes forever, again, but don't throw out your PC just yet.

    Are you afraid of the possibility of a creative machine?

    No. I look forward to seeing a computer compose music.


    Same.

    No, you clearly know your subject albeit a computer creating music is the AI equivalent of a trained dog walking on it's hind legs.

    Would a truly creative machine share the same notions about creativity as a human?
