@Spudblaster15: I just about remember writing that quote in your signature.

I remember the Horsepower-nanoseconds, and Parsecs per Planck time. However, I can't remember for the life of me what the μhhg unit was meant to be... hang on. Micro hogsheads - it shoulda been μhhd.

Meh. It was funny at the time.

We were talking about the stability of elongated projectiles...

It looks like there was a spudgun involved :D

Who likes playing minecraft?

I play it sometimes.

It's a nice game because of the simplicity, and the ability of building nice things.

If anyone plays it, show your creations!

Completely off topic, I was one of the very first to see a demo of the new Intel server chip. The new server chip is 10 cores with dual threads. They have a server built about twice the size of a desktop machine. The machine has a raid solid state drive array, 4 10 core processors, and I forgot what for a screaming graphics card. At idle it was drawing about 650 watts, or about 175 watts per CPU with memory drives etc.

For the demo they ran Pov-Ray rendering while monitoring all the 80 CPU threads. To let it run for a while instead of quitting too soon, they did two renderings at the same time. Still it was done in just a few seconds. While rendering, all 80 threads maxxed out and the power use went over 1KW.

Each of these renderings normally take a weekend running to produce on a home machine.

This server is designed to replace data center servers that require a forklift to remove. Wow, I was impressed.

The chips are ones I helped make.

A typical rendering is like this one.

Pov-ray is open source and free. The learning curve is steep. The render times are huge for high resolution when tracing many reflections. Fortunatly like Sketchup, there is a great library of pre made objects.
Pick it up free here;

Elephants Dream was made in blender, another open source rendering program.

Find it in HD and download it. It's great.

Tech - Are you into rendering or just interested from the render?

I was considering building a ray tracing workstation earlier this month but ultimately will have to see how much spare money I have from my Co-op with Siemens after the summer is over...

Since it will be basically a render workhorse I was going to build up something based on a multi-cpu platform. I've decided to wait until sandy bridge hits the upper level enthusiast chips however... I really like the SR-2 from EVGA for it's dual Xeon support along with overclocking ability, but with the price of 8 core's dropping, and the possibility of an enthusiast 8 core chip with OC support I would rather take a realistic approach than spend all my money on something that's way overkill lol.

I'm using Modo right now though primarily with stuff I create in Solidworks - I've gotten into free form and mixing in glass and other translucent materials and illumination really taxes my current build - a 4 core non HT at 3.5GHz...
