Yoes

Hey there, I'm new and figured I'd just get out my hellos and such.

I'm a bit of an agnostic-atheist who's interests are physics and robotics. I actually knew about this site for a while but never got to making a name, so yeah, yoes.

Welcome!

Welcome!

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare

If you start a company named Skynet then I think we may have a problem.

@ Abu Lahab; But the company

@ Abu Lahab; But the company was named Cyberdyne, the project was called Skynet.

 

Oh, And by the way...

Fortunately, or not, they're only on 5 right now.

 

P.S. Welcome.

When you say it like that you make it sound so Sinister...

I was never a big Terminator fan. I should have gone over to Wiki for this little snippet:

Early development on Skynet was originally done by Cyberdune Systems, but when the company's headquarters and primary R&D facility were destroyed, the U.S. Air force purchased Cyberdyne and the newly formed Cyber Research Systems Division began in-house development of a new Skynet.

Appreciate the correction.
