Meh, it'll come to one of us someday. :p

It's come to me ages ago...

Why does the universe exist? By that, I mean as opposed to nothing: nothingness with no dimension or reality as we know it, and as we don't know it. Why is there something, and not nothing? The universe is meaningless, after all. Then, logically, it would make more sense for the universe not to exist.

Unfortunately, they did not really ask a question. After millions of years, they received error code 42. It's a shame since that's not covered by Deep Thought's 8 million year limited warranty.

Well, maybe I'm not European but Japanese, but I prefer using big endian date organization (for sorting reasons), which by the way is the international ISO 8601 standard. :p

So, I've decided to try and teach myself Russian. Thus far I've got 6 numbers memorized.:lol:

EDIT:Now I've got 1-100 down!:woohoo:

I seem to feel the same unexplained confusion when trying to read JavaScript code as I used to in my younger years when looking at algebraic equations (any time I used to see a lot of numbers and letters together at once, for no reason at all, my brain would, for lack of a better term, 'lock up').

In all honesty, I think I might be mildly dyslexic.

Hm.
Error 42: GIGO.

Good luck.

Maybe it's normal cases of a lack of experience?
You don't know the patterns yet, so you don't know what to look for, and thus lock up.

I was always surprised at our lack of resistance though.
What kind of resistance could there have been?
The whole ordeal took a minute or so, nothing would have reached them even if we launched on sight.

Perhaps. It's not that I can't read the code. It just takes me a while longer to pick through it and get the logic. But I normally get the hang of new languages rather quickly, and I don't remember ever having this much difficulty with other languages (VB6, C++, or Java, for example).

Well, nothing more than a couple of cop cars seemed to be dispatched.

Perhaps what I not meant was resistance, rather than any military taking interest in such a thing.

Just made some advertisement pitching of Orbiter on a Chinese spaceflight forum - wish me good luck! (and if you guys have a good idea of how to do that - post them here!) :tiphat:
