    Hackers in training

    You can't fix a weakness in your defense when you don't realize it exists. The way you find weaknesses in a computer system is by attempting to bypass it. Which is exactly what hacking is. Failing to recognize weaknesses and fix them means that they remain there for more truly malicious people...

    Integral of 3d equation

    I don't think you can take the integrals of things that aren't functions. What are you trying to do?

    Fun math paradoxes, problems, and stuff

    No, because if it did it would be representable by the sentence given above, which has eleven words. That didn't seem very tricky. :\ You can't have anything shorter than a planck length (which is like 10^-30something meters), so eventually you wouldn't be able to zoom in any more.

    The planet's future!

    Not exactly defenseless against most of those things, and the chance of natural disasters actually coming anywhere close to wiping us out is astronomically low. Really, the biggest threat to humanity right now is something that comes very fast and pretty much wipes us all out before we have...

    Dynamic tooltip - show current level

    You can probably use catalog functions to retrieve the current level and then set the tooltip of the ability based on that. I'm not entirely sure if that would work though, some things (icons in particular) won't allow any changes made with catalog functions. :\

    What's the state of SC2 modding?

    The biggest problem is that with the new editor Blizzard forced us to use the data editor more and removed much of the stuff you could do with triggers. The way it should have gone is that Blizzard let us use their 3D engine and their lobby system and parts of their engine and then code the...

    About trolling on the Internet...

    People troll because they think its funny, and on occasion, it is. The way to avoid being trolled is either to just ban them outright with minimal argument or to not be serious about it and just go along with it. Judging by "sick, worthless, failed in life, mosquito-level-of-intelligence...

    The Zeitgeist Movement

    By privately owned companies, I assume you mean PMCs? I'm surprised at how many mercenaries (or as they call themselves "contractors") the US government has, but I don't believe that it's some kind of conspiracy so that the US can declare martial law and shit like that. Problem with the US...

    Put water down first, then lava on top. Much easier to make obsidian that way and you don't run the risk of burning yourself. The water actually has to be flowing somewhere though, just so you know. Also portals don't work in SMP last I checked.

    abusing glitches is cheating by most definitions, not like anyone is going to ban you from your SP world though. Why don't you spare the time you'd spend glitching and just use invedit or a similar program to give yourself all the items you want?

    Telepathy Tutorial

    you realize that an EEG recording doesn't pick up brain waves, it picks up electrical activity on the scalp? that's the important part, the brainwaves don't travel any significant distance through air or a vacuum, it requires direct physical contact for the machine to even work. but eh...

    Telepathy Tutorial

    This thread is dumb. There are so many reasons why telepathy doesn't work/make sense, and there is no quantifiable evidence to back it. Also the human brain uses ~20 watts in normal function. Please explain how you can generate an electromagnetic or whatever you people call it field that can...

    Minecraft minecraft minecraft

    How would you make timers for prison entrances? The only way I can think of doing it is setting it via binary memory cells, which would probably need at least 8 or so memory cells, then using a bit adder and a timer to wait, using an and gate on 8 not-XOR gates to verify that the time is...

    it gets pretty much expanded infinitely. Also its procedurally generated so nothing will be generated until you get there. After like 320,000,000 blocks or so you'll start running into technical problems, but really, you'd need to actually travel that far. >.>

    Do We See Things Differently?

    We only see wavelengths of light. Our minds interpret these wavelengths as "colors". With no absolute frame of reference, its impossible to know if someone's green is anothers. It sounds kind of interesting but it really isn't revolutionary or exciting. The basic relationships between different...

    Knowledge of the english language.

    Did you ever stop to consider that if you lived in a country where people didn't speak English, movies and shows and such are also generally not in English? And that generally if you can't speak or read English very well, you would generally stick to websites and watch TV shows which are in...

    Overall quality of published maps

    But we're not professionals, not by a long shot. Almost everyone who mods are highschool/college students who like to make maps. Not everyone has the time to work 2-3 hours daily, and even if you are working on it that much, it doesn't mean the mod will be great, it just means that it will be...

    Replay Section

    Overall quality of published maps

    By fixed, I meant that blizzard is fixing the problems on their end that caused the delay to be excessively high. There will always be some degree of delay from latency, but at least it won't be like 500 ms on average.

    The delay is getting fixed in Patch 1.2.0, or so they claimed a while back.

    It doesn't add up...

    I think the idea is that God has a plan for everyone, but people can choose to not follow this plan. God could predict whether or not people would follow, but he chooses not to and lets people decide on their own, ie free will. I don't really know though, I'm not religious.

    Life plus Arsenic

    I don't know the exact chemistry, but its true that it can be more stable at low temperatures, such as those on Titan. It could mean that alien life could develop in places like that. Ofc, you have to take into account that its longer and less efficient for life, so that might cause...

    Only Those Prepared To Die Have The Right To Kill

    But that isn't a right, Nestharus. That's capability. Plus I can murder someone without being prepared to die myself; I am fully capable of it, and when I strip all moral values and fair play and simply look at it from a logical standpoint, it says that if I murder them in a way that I am not...

    NOTD and The Final Frontier are good maps. Nexus Word Wars was pretty fun for a while but it got old pretty fast.

    How to Disable Player Chat?

    People might want to whisper or something. Unfortunately, you can't change this, and I agree it can be annoying. I guess you could constantly clear the screen of messages like every 0.05 seconds (if possible, only chat messages) and then re-display any messages from the cinematic.

    Arithmetics Question

    Only Those Prepared To Die Have The Right To Kill

    Saying "right" to kill suggests that they can do it without facing any consequences. What you are saying is that you only have the right to kill someone without consequences if you are prepared to face the consequences of you killing them. It doesn't really make sense.

    Patch 1.2.0 -- Public test region (server) for North America

    Hallucination can also be used for scouting. IE spawning a phoenix and flying it over your enemies base. 100 sentry energy vs actually building a phoenix, which can die, is a big difference. Void Rays keep their pre-flux vane speed now. Vikings are a hardcounter to them now, which is nice...

    Really fun map; definitely one of the better games that I've played on SC2. A few things you could improve on, though: - The option buttons before the game begins are kinda... ehh. - The magic obelisk things that give you minerals can be somewhat imbalanced. A guy in an earlier game got one...
