Ys [userpic]

(For context: in a couple of places, my avatar is a nigh-infinite number of six-inch-tall fairies with a hivemind sort of consciousness. This particular quote is from fenton's hangout/social MUX.)

fenton pages: Especially during debug/runtime. I think that's my new metaphor for heavily OO code that has high object dynamism and loosely coupled, task/responsibility-based APIs. Angels dancing on the head of a pin. :)
You paged fenton with 'It's not a bad metaphor. :)'
fenton pages: Well, it was that, or hippos and alligators. :)
fenton pages: Only when it's *my* code do you get into the Night on Bald Mountain sequence.
fenton pages: Well, that, or when you're writing daemons.
Long distance to fenton Many Tiny Debs ahahahahaha hippos and alligators
From afar, fenton grins. In tutus!

fenton says, "Now, if we could just figure out some way to arrange the indeterminant, nigh-infinite number of Tiny Debs into a parallel processing state machine, we wouldn't need quantum computers in the first place. Unfortunately, every time we've tried, they get distracted and flit off. Or start an orgy."
Many Tiny Debs ahahahahahaha!
Many Tiny Debs want to quote that in their journal. 'Sok?
fenton grins. Yes. You can also quote the bit about angels, alligators, hippos, and daemons, if you want. Or I can.

Current Mood: amusedamused

That said, the bandwidth-per-node is higher than the compute power per node, since they use some form of gestalt consciousness to communicate, and don't have that much compute power per fairy...
