    [–] Red Alert 2 Installation xfactoid 16 points ago * (lasted edited 2 days ago) in commandandconquer

    This was such a trip as a kid. Made you feel like a total badass while you got ready to play.

    Personal Authorization given by President of United States to upgrade current terminal to Alpha-6 clearance. Oath of loyalty required to proceed.

    Incidentally, I googled this quote and found no exact matches.. has nobody ever transcribed the installer before?

    same question. I'm leaning towards the Wii version with dolphin

    Have you tried Ring of Elysium? It makes a little more sense, though still not perfect.

    [–] Isn’t it likely the next Diablo game will have some way to make it a competitive eSport? xfactoid 1 points ago in Diablo

    I don't know about pvp esports, but I was thinking about how the GR leaderboards could be made a little more interesting with some alternative modes.

    • A tiered paragon board where each 500 or 1000 paragon levels have separate boards, and it would keep track of how many points you have allocated so that people at high GR can also participate in the low para boards.

    • A tiered speedrun board. Who can run fastest 60, 70, 80, etc.

    IMO these would bring back some much-needed skill-based competition. Current leaderboards are almost entirely correlated with paragon, ancient rolls, and augments.

    It’s less load for their servers in the common case where you don’t watch the whole thing.

    [–] Seinnheiser vs. Beats headphones after being subjected to comparable activities and length of use xfactoid 2 points ago in pics

    I've had the HD 280 pro phones for like 10 years. After 5 years the top broke somehow so I sent it in for repair/replacement out of warranty, cost $50. Not great but better than needing a new $50 pair every couple years. Then just recently the padding was really starting to fall apart so I ordered some replacement padding for $30. It was a pain in the ass fitting the new padding but they look brand new and sound crisp as ever.

    [–] Scientists discovered new half-light half-matter particles that inherit some of the remarkable features of graphene: they could lead to the heart of a future technological revolution based on photonic circuitry, leading to superfast, light-based computing xfactoid 4 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago) in science

    No, it is quite literally a two-state, binary system, just like a classical bit. The difference is that it's a two-state system in a quantum state, meaning that, between measurements, it takes on a (unitary) superposition of the two states.

    If you have a mathematical background it is explained quite well on this section on wikipedia. The probability amplitudes (alpha and beta on that wiki) each take on a continuous (complex) range of values, however these only represent the quantum state of the system and not the actual value measured and read out by the computer.

    Quantum computing is 0.0 -> 1.0

    On the whole you have it right but this often repeated bit always bothers me. A qubit is a two-state quantum system, meaning a two-state or binary system that can evolve (quantum mechanically) in a unitary fashion (a complex mathematical relation between the two states). It is not simply the interval [0,1].

    [–] Instructions For Recovering Bookmarks xfactoid 1 points ago in Papaly

    Sure, but then you lose important metadata like date added, tags, etc. It's just extremely annoying that they have delayed and delayed adding such an essential feature.

    I really want to use raindrop but they don't let you edit URLs. This has been a 'planned' feature request for 2 years now but still not implemented.

    That’s pretty neat. Funny how they don’t think it be like it is but it do.
