Pick one.

Seriously, flash is the worst #$%% unleashed on the internet.

I hope this works. I liked the original.

Open source FLMM would be an interesting development, it's kind of hypocritical screaming about the sourcecode for FL, but we can't even opensource community projects.

I have a hard time imagining EVE as anything else but an MMO. I'll go for it if you make a massive breakthrough in AI technology, have fun determining how understanding and acting upon your understanding works though. You can't plot without understanding your enemy, neither can a simulated opponent do anything particularly challenging without being able to process information in a way reminiscent of an intelligent mind.

I don't recall anyone ever saying they are not professional, neither do I recall anyone saying reactors are cheap?

Might've misunderstood what you meant.

Actually they found a little bit of plutonium right outside reactors, and if I remember correctly Pu-239 has a half-life of several thousand years (we're talking somewhere around 24k years), which is what they end up with after running U-238 through the reactors.

Pu-239 is highly radioactive and IMO they should shut the plant down and bombard the thing with cement, the reactors are destroyed now anyways.

The rest of the world is not threatened by this, but Japan is.

What about the literally tens of coal powerplants that went on fire the last 50 years? They're not dangerous? The fires from those can be impossible to stop for a very long time, and by that time it may have killed much more people than a fissionplant can kill in the same timespan if the fissionplant fails.

Not only do coal powerplants pollute the air a lot even with filtering, but they pollute the air to what probably will be toxic for human beings if they go on fire or something.

Geothermic powerplants is a genious idea, the only problem about them is that they literally destroy every geyser out there.

EDIT: I feel like pointing out that in a liberal society you can't trust fission or fusion to anyone running such a powerplant. Such powerplants require some extent of governmental control, for example forcing the corporation to shut down the plant if they do not upgrade when they are "ordered" to.

EDIT2: In fact, scratch that, all powerplants require some extent of governmental control. There's no safe powerplant tech out there, not even wind can be considered safe.

It's not because it's "not cool" as you put it. It's because wind powerplants generate 2MW each at most. Compare that to an almost 40 year old reactor over at Fukushima generating 750MW...

I know Norway runs on water powerplants, they generate 60% of our powerusage and I live here. Each of them generate 350MW at most, but there's not enough waterfalls to supply whole Norway with them. 20% of our powerusage comes from fissionplants "imported" from the European network.

The Fukushima reactors were not upgraded in 15 years, and at that point we did not have the safe reactor designs we have today. Fissionpower is a a fully plausible way to go with our current safer designs. Most our fissionplants have not been upgraded in a long while and can be thought of as unsafe.

Fusion is even more dangerous, if one of them were to fail controlling the fusionprocess the amount of heat would be insane, and it would do much more damage than any fissionplant can possibly do today.

Don't bring up solar powerplants. Their maintenance costs are way too high, the cells can't use more than 20% of the energy, theoretical max of 30%...

Oil based solar powerplants are not "green-power", as the oil has to come from somewhere, and extracting that oil is not a green process.

This thread is full of stupidity.

First off, what we have in the west is democracy, but it's not open, it's representative. The western world is just as corrupt as the rest of the world is, we're just better at hiding it.

Do you think ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement) was an act of anti-terrorism? No, it's an act of maximizing profit by literally trying to exterminate piracy which will never happen, it can't happen.

Do you think DRD (Data Retention Directive) which was recently accepted in Norway was an act to catch "pedophiles and terrorists"? No, it's again about maximizing profits or controlling the public, but I am not sure as to where they're heading with logging where we are, who we speak to, when we call a phone or connect to the internet.

No government actually cares about it's people, they only need them to keep the economy running. Today's system has ended up with the government being a supercorporation above all the other corporations based in that country.



Over to nuclear power. It is safe. How many thermal powerplants light on fire the last 30 years? Many... Thermal powerplants is just a general category for coal, oil and gas powerplants.. Compare the number to the number of nuclear reactors going down in 30 years. You don't even read about them in the news due to how often thermal plants catch fire or has some dramasituation.

4 reactors has gone down in the last 30 years, where only 2 of them actually made the area around them unhabitable. Chernobyl was a russian design from 1960, which had no anti-meltdown system except the rods stopping the fissionprocess, the reactorbuilding itself was low quality and the roof was made in wood.

The second, somewhere in the US had no such thing as passively shutting down when too hot either.

The two others were research reactors and they were shut down, but are unusable today.

Fukushima has no such thing as passive shutdown either. I just feel like pointing out one single fissionreactor can generate up to 2 GW, with almost no waste generated. When the radioactive water have been disposed of after a certain amount of time the radioactive waste itself is at the size of a tennisball. Fukushima was built for 7 on richters scale, not 9.

Wind power is stupid. Our government wanted 3% of Norway's powerusage to be from wind power, which actually requires 1500 of those powerplants...

Modern reactordesigns can't melt down, they can heat up a lot but they can't melt down.

Nuclear power is the future, you can't argue with that, their efficency is too great and the risk and waste is too low. Fusion is the future, and it has no radioactive waste. What happens in fusion is fusioning two hydrogen atoms, and the output is helium.

The first fusionreactor designed for powergeneration will start construction next year in Europe, it's called HiPER. The brits actually maintained their own "star" for a little while, although small, it was a product of fusion.

EDIT: Thorium reactors is possible today, they are even more efficent, there is more Thorium on earth than Uranium, it's lower risk and it's lower waste.

Win-win until fusion is usable.

There is a use in AV, but little if you know how to avoid getting infected. Not using a bad browser, avoiding suspicious sites, not clicking stupid ads and having common sense when reading email from unknown sources. Last I read Kaspersky and NOD32 was the 2 best pay-for AVs.
