    Shoot, the wedding I officiate there were probably 125 people. I know that 175 were invited, but not everyone showed.

    Re: Post Race!

    I spent the last week clearing a trail in one of the most remote places in the country. It was an insanely steep trail, too, with plenty of poison ivy (looks like I avoided that) and ticks (I avoided most of that). We had a good time, but my finger joints are currently swollen from swinging a pick for six days.

    Re: Post Race!

    That seems kind of obvious, to me. Computability problems were always divided into those that could be solved in reasonable time now, and those that could be solved if we had more power. There was always a different class of problems that could be said to be those that could not be solved, no matter how much power was available, so the threshold was always the case, and the hierarchy model was always misguided.

    For example, when ray casting was first introduced into gaming, it allowed for first-person 3D shooters like Castle Wolfenstein 3D. That was amazing for its time, but even then we knew about ray tracing, it's just that the hardware couldn't do that fast enough for a realistic experience. So, we had the domain of what could be done fast enough, which was a small subset of what could be done...given enough time. However, also at that time, we knew about things like the Knapsack Problem, which couldn't be solved definitively no matter how much power could be thrown at it. So, we had a situation that looked like the hierarchy, since more power would appear to allow more computability, but what was really happening was that we were defining computable only in terms of "computable fast enough for our purposes."

    Re: Post Race!

    if you are covered with duvet you may need to see a vet . This is a tentative of a french/english pun as the word duvet in french mean also the small feathers of the young birds ( by the way, the duvet (the object) gets its name from that as it was traditionally filled with them)
