    Didn't I send this out a while back ?


    I looked at their travelling salesman solution when it was submitted. Good stuff.

    IT takes quantum computing from an N rate of error to about 256 erroneous superpositions. It's made quantum computers reliable "enough" to be worked with.

    I don't think it will ever reach an end user.

    And some day, there will be a computer that will fit in a single room!


    It'll happen. Give it 10 years, your graphics card will be craptastic unless its runing 28 of these things in tandem to process your 3-d holigraphic images. And two weeks later, they'll release a card with 56 of them.

    The government will use this for their own purposes. If reg people owned it, hackers would once again have the upper hand. They can brute force hack something in seconds, not minutes.

    Did you get a new tinfoil hat today ?


    You know that if "We" get this computer all we do is have it play chess and see if we can beat it.

    There are LOTS of machines out there currently that smash our ideas of processing potential. They aren't used to send out spams and "hack teh syst3ms y0"

    I suppose I did. But, that wasn't exactly the point I was trying to make.
