Nice work there Foothead. Get those extra relays you need.

I guessed you'd like the link as it ties in with your current project.

So roughly how many relays would you need to match a modern day processor.....? Some are touching close to a billion transistors.

I'm still trying to get the relays. Paypal is still screwing me around. They keep saying that I have to do something to verify my account, I do it, then they move on to something else even more ridiculous. Right now, I'm waiting for a letter that will contain a code to allow me to continue verification. It's ridiculous. They did this because I logged into paypal from my phone, which always seems to think I live in michigan...

And yeah, that video fit perfectly. I wonder how long it took to make that though. He could probably have built it for real in that amount of time.

It really wouldn't be possible to make a modern CPU out of relays. The fastest clock they can tolerate tends to be about 10Hz. So even if you built an exact replica of an i7, it would most likely take years to boot windows. I could maybe see like a relay 8086 capable of running DOS, but that would be a hell of a project, and it'd still take forever to do anything.

Oh, and it would probably look something like this but with relays.

Yes. It's really that time of year again. School has kicked up for a lot of people. A lot of members will be more active around Christmas and for a few weeks (maybe months after). Spring break is another one where more members are active. And of course, summer.

I think I am getting better on SCII. If I join a party my friend made, and he went to play a quick league match, does that mean I will be playing in his league? For example, if he was in the Gold league, and we play a league match, then we will play against other leagues.

If so, then I think I will be around the silver league. I still gotta finish my practice league though, still go about 30 matches.

I just ordered supplies for automating my Christmas lights.


Do y'all think an 800 MHz VIA C3 would be enough to run Vixen with 64 channels? It'll have 512MB DDR and will be running Windows Xp. If not, I'll use a Sempron 3200+ system I just put together, but I'd rather use that as my main computer at my dad's house. BTW, sempron 3200 + HD 5770 = epic bottleneck.

I have a question about the SCII achievements. How do I get the "as all possibilities"?
