Thanks! I had found those networks pretty intriguing too since they represented somewhat of a breakthrough in many fields of pattern recognition and machine learning. Those are the same networks powering Apple's Siri.
Fascinating video: I think a voice-over track would be a good idea.
Look forward to seeing your article.
Happy New Year, Bill
"We live in a world ruled by fictions: mass merchandising, advertising, politics as advertising, instant translation of science, technology, into popular imagery, increasing blur of identity in realms of consumer goods, preempting any free, original, imaginative, response to experience by the television screen. We live in an enormous novel. For a writer it's less necessary to invent a novel's fictional content: fiction's already there. A writer's task is to invent a reality." J. G. Ballard, 1974
For Christmas I got a new case for my desktop, but I have a small problem: the front ports are all USB 3.0 (despite the listed specs of 2x USB 2.0 and 1x USB 3.0), but my motherboard doesn't support it. Not a big deal, because there are PCI cards that support USB 3.0...except I can't find one with 2 internal 19-pin headers (which I need to use all three ports). I've checked all my usual places, and if they're out there they aren't easy to find.
I could of course get 2 PCI cards (I have the space now, and they aren't that expensive), or only attach two of the ports, but ideally I would like to be able to do all three with just one card. Or the really weird set up of one header to a card, and the second converted to a USB plug and run out the tubing holes in back and plugged into an external port of the card. So if anyone happens to know of a PCI card fitting that description, I'd love to know where I can get one...
I haven't been to CP for a long time and when I finally got here, the only place I visit is The Lounge. What the hell is wrong about this forum?
BTW it is fun to observe how CP subtitle changes over time... When I was registering it was homely "Your Visual Studio and .NET Homepage", at some point of time it changed to a serious "Programming Resource", and now it is a social "CodeBook For those who code". I think it accurately describes the evolution of CP
I've been a Dr Who fan since the 1980's. One thing I've noticed with the 'new' Drs has been a lot more tendency to depend upon action and special effects instead of story line. I still watch, but my wife will only watch episodes from the first six doctors.
Where are concepts like Logopolis and Castrovalva ? Rose was very good - closest thing we've had to Lela in a long time.
I've not seen the latest, so without commenting on it, is anyone else somewhat disappointed?

As a software developer, I know what makes a good software. But when it comes to programming them, gosh! I had a lot of night-outs, especially when making a browser engine.
I already have a boot loader, Linux kernel. But now, I have a doubt. Is it necessary?
Update: Everything is not coded in HTML or JS. It does supports the normal compiled ones. But it is not yet confirmed that which executable type to use.
It is not interpreted in a web browser but in a browser engine. You really do not require an internet connection as they work offline. Everything works offline until or unless you want to update the application or download a new one from appStore.

It's easy to design with Web Technologies so it will make software development easier. But.. it will not enable us to make background services or softwares like Rocket Dock or Rainmeter. A high school student can make his own application as many schools are teaching Simple web development (and of course how to use Visual Studio).
WebDevelopment != SoftwareDevelopment
There are countless problems that cannot be solved by mere web development. If your experience revolves only around web based applications, then I see where you are coming from, but I respectfully disagree. What you are suggesting is that every computer needs to be nothing more than a web hosting device which is not practical in any way, shape, or form.
It's easy to design with Web Technologies so it will make software development easier.
No it isn't.
Software development over time rises to meet the demand. The demand drives the innovation. the innovation doesn't drive the demand.
A high school student can make his own application
I created my own applications before the Web and before the internet. The complexity has risen, significantly, since then. Complexity both in frameworks/apis/languages that exist to solve problems and complexity of applications that exist to meet need.

Thing is, there's nothing to stop you doing that now, the only difference is that the app will be hosted in a browser rather than directly in the OS (except in windows 8 if I understand Metro apps correctly)
S in answer to your question "is it necessary" I'd say that it's been done, and sales of google chrome OS would indicate its not exactly the Next Big Thing but certainly a viable concept.
When the only tool you have is a hammer, it does not automatically make all problems require a nail to solve.
Contrary to what some people think, not all applications are suitable for running on the web. Anything requiring a guarenteed response time, or typical response times under a second or so, can not run 'from the web'. Web apps can't manage local hardware effectively. Web applications are notoriously poor in terms of UI latency; users are accustomed to poor reaction times because the medium forces them to become so. Any application requiring significant data volumes (megabytes or even gigabytes per second) can't be delegated to a web server.
Secondly, there are significant computer systems with no Internet access. No web, no application.
While there may be a value is imposing structure on the chaos that is web development, calling that structure an 'operating system' seems overblown and unnecessary.

why couldn't making software be any easier and faster?
For the most part, that tends to make things worse. The best I can say is that, although there tend to be more bugs, they tend to be easier to find and fix.
In my opinion, the best balance is in using C.
INTERPRETING applications using a database to store information
That sounds like a rule-based system. I have had to work within one of those (for batch processing, not interactive), it did what it was supposed to do and worked fairly well, but it was slooooww and ungainly. Additionally, a whole set of tools was required to maintain the apps and there was no way to validate the logic of the apps. And in the end each rule had to be implemented in a regular programming language anyway so there was little to be gained. The goal was to have a small group of senior developers writing the rules and junior (or off-shore) developers assembling them into apps. I left after a year of that.
Which brings to mind -- could you write your OS within the OS? You can write a C compiler in C; you can write a whole OS in C. One can write a Universal Turing Machine. Could you write your interpreter in your new interpreted language? I fear not. Not to say that's a show-stopper, but something to consider.
But go ahead and do it, it sounds interesting, and as has been said, you'll probably learn quite a bit.
I am so high pressure and not happy now, this often happened after i called my mom.
Every time i called her, she always say something worry, like how many debt owe others, and my scanty salary.
I know this is not her fault, all the problem is existent， i think if she do not feed me, she will live better, i even hate myself now
i really do not know how to do...
