Ooh, talk about friction burns!!!

I always thought we'd be well on the way to colonizing the moon by now.

What the fuck are you talking about? It's a movie. But google could have told you that.


Google could have also told you it was an FMV game featuring Isaac Hayes.


So you really thought I was referring to the game, and not the movie? Yes, I'm also aware that the movie was based on a short story, and I'm sure there are plenty of other things out there with Johnny Mnemonic in the title. But when somebody says they think it would be cool to do something they saw in something designed to entertain people, I feel like it's reasonable to assume that they're not talking about the version where people fucking die when they do it. But I guess I assumed too much.

I'd so totally play Jumanji!

Oh, sorry, off topic remark based on in topic cues.

I'd rather play that spin off movie of Jumanji. It's in space I think? Didn't like the movie as much, but the game sounded cool if it was real.

I'm always interested in mechanical/electrical replacements of organs and limbs, body parts in general. Quite a few things coming out. Plus, having a suit that enhances your abilities and adds new ones would be nice too.... Iron man!

Hmm, cyborg body would be nice. Until it catches a virus and all control of the electronic body is taken over by some hacker in a foreign country that is ill bent upon destroying the western culture.

"Iron man", huh? You're looking for a suit that makes your man do the housework?
(or were you thinking of enhancing some other set of abilities?)

Or if you are foolish enough to install Windows Vista.

Oh, come on, everyone knows that a cyborg body would run on an Android or Linux architecture. Windoze is too closed for easy development of the device drivers necessary to interface the body parts with a human brain.

Of course, the Android versions would be the cheap economy editions that are buggy and full of lag, like the last Coby tablet I played with.

I remember someone pointing out they saw Iron Man's suit is written in C++.

Well that would make the most sense wouldn't it, considering that C++ has been the language of choice for real professional software programs for quite some time now.

I personally still adhere to C# as my language, though I'm kind of starting to regret not paying more attention to Java since this whole android marketplace blew up into such a huge money bucket.

Funny enough - I came across these three videos from a few years back. I am a bit shocked the first one doesn't mention lolcats, or 'baiting.

1. home office...


2. Living room


3. Kitchen

If you know C#, Java will be a piece of cake. Go for it.

So I've noticed, though I'm not all too happy with the available choices of IDE's for Java. They all seem to be rather slow and unresponsive when it comes to intellisense.

LOL...I code by intellisense. I know the languages I code in very well, but intellisense helps in a lot of different ways. First, it helps to ensure I don't misspell certain key words by showing me the keywords that match what i'm typing and allowing me to press tab to have it auto-complete the rest of the word. Secondly, it helps me to explore new libraries or classes by showing me it's members as I'm coding so I don't have to stop and review the object browser.

While I can code without intellisense or an IDE, I prefer not do, because the IDE makes my programming tasks oh so much faster. This means I get my tasks done really fast then have the rest of the day to lounge around on D.I.C. or whatever.
