Infinitely powerful computer

Posted 06 January 2011 - 01:25 PM

What would you do with an infinitely powerful computer with infinitely large hard drive?


What code would you run or do?

Just hypothetically speaking....

I would tell it to defragment the hard drive and wait.


Seriously though, I'd probably run all the programs similar to Folding@Home or SETI@Home and all other large computation programs so that we can answer the questions that the universe may have answers to.

I would develop a program that finds almost every EXE file that looks important. Then it will run all of these in the background. And then when you click on a shortcut to open a file, it will open that program instead. It will be all loaded up and ready.

I would also make a spider for porn sites. It never ends. Assuming that porn will never stop being posted, my spider will never stop downloading. Thus, infinite OC of porn.
