Since I'm in school, my projects are kinda slow moving. But I do have a few working. The main one is My Altos network. I have an Altos 986T with 7 serial ports, meant to be a file server (actually came from a collections agency from 1988), and will stay one but instead of terminals, I'll have a bunch of different computers attached. So far, the list is Atari ST 1040, Tandy 2500SX, and a win95 laptop, but I'll soon have an Atari 800XL, C128, and a couple of other ones plus an ethernet connection to the internet. I'm still testing to see whether all of the machines will talk to it (it runs Xenix).
I do mostly Basic language, but am learning more and more every day. Linux teaches LOTS of scripting. My teacher made us do most everything from the command line, and I am grateful for that. I'm going to learn the alice language, too. These are pretty much tinkerer projects, though. My main goal is to set up a network using the Moon as a jumping off point. Cause even though the Mon would not function well as a jumping off point for ships (which I disagree with but I'm not in charge
) it would make an EXCELLENT jumping off network node. And I figure gravity would be the medium.
Never really have known much about AI, honestly. I hace read stories of people's computer programs going off in directions they never thought about before, and they were really interesting. I guess I prefer my machines kinda dumb
Have you ever listened to interviews with Jon Lear? He talks of gravity as a medium to transfer information. Hearing an interview with him actually got me interested in the subject. I love computers, but I realise that it isn't even the tip
of the iceberg.
The kind of thing I'm looking for is info on what kinds of parts/substances can be used to affect gravity. Like how quartz crystals can be used to affect electromagnetic waves, etc. What would be needed to affect gravity? According to the article it would be hard to do. Chin up, though, I know it's possible.
