Dagorath, your opinion is representing extroverts and I don't want to argue with it. But, with probability approaching certainty, I can say that the not-so-small-part of mankind represented by introverts (approximately 25% of us) might replace their miserable lives with extrovert people like you for calm lives inside asteroids, Mars, moons...

Speaking about Asimov. Well, based on your post, you know nothing about his work, so do us a favour: either don't speak about him and his work, or read his opus and than we can continue in our conversation. In my previous post I didn't say a word about "the way his characters do or even where his characters do", neither JumpinJohnny did in his. I just mentioned his comparison of asteroids and spaceships. And this stands.

Do all the things you enjoy doing like feeling a wind in your hair, catching a fish, kissing a girl under the open sky, skiing... but please, do not try never ever to speak as a messiah of the people you know nothing about them. Even if your name is Brian.

Cheers.

In one of his short stories Isaac Asimov has compared asteroids to spaceships - basically: no life possible on the surface, nice, warm, safe place inside. Is this idea really that silly?

Cheers and NI!

Not sure where to place this thread, so admins feel free to move it to the right spot :-)

News like from the Science Fiction novel, but make your own judgement.

The potential colonization of asteroids is one of the most promising areas of space exploration - even more so than mining them for resources, Russian scientists say. The creation of closed-cycle ecosystems could possibly turn asteroids into space bases...

To BilBg: thanks for informing me about my IP, ISP, OS and browser. But still can't get a point :confused:

Cheers

2 Dagorath & Jan Vaclavik. Thanks guys, time-to-time I am crunching EAH and SAH as well as Collatz, PrimeGrid and MilkyWay. But for one reason or another, I am not willing to dedicate a bigger part of my electricity bills to them :-). AAH seems to be worth it :wink:

2 HA-SOFT, s.r.o.: it is really important reason, thanks for reply and good luck :-)

Cheers, NI!

I don't understand why bother with CUDA (first) when there are tons of unused OpenCL-capable GPGPU's left after WCG - HCC1 project finished. I, for example, am waiting for some interesting OpenCL GPU projects to utilize my lower-range 7750 and 6770M and AAH would be one of them :-)

Good luck anyway and cheers :V:
