It took like 10 years to go from 32-bit to 64-bit. I don't think we'll see 128-bit processors until desktop computers are capable of 8 exabytes of RAM. Motherboard/RAM limitation aside, why it took so long for the CPU to move to the higher bits? If we take a look at video card memory interface, it ...

I just thought: is it going to be significant increase in bits? Now we have 64-bit CPU; are we going to have, say, 512-bit or even a megabit CPU? What's the limitation for such thing?

His art isn't really popular today. :oops: I meant among certain collectors. Not really that "popular", though. Anyway, probably the reason why collectors are hunting them is because of the person who painted them instead of their art values. The problem with those paintings are that they are kind ...

Or he was simply unappreciated? (2) Hitler had adopted anti-Semite views since in Vienna, but IIRC his fanatical qu...

I used to, and fairly decently. Now, I'm basically lost when I look at sheet music. I can't even remember what the little numbers mean anymore, though I think it has to do with tempo. You mean numbers like 3/4, 2/4, 4/4, and such? They actually tells you about the ryhtm. 3/4, for instance, says tha...

Yes. Playing them, though, is a different issue. I cannot play it "cold" (playing a song I've never heard before simply by reading the notes). In order to play something, I have to hear the song first.

Ah, just browsed my collection and found something. Stravo, if you don't mind faster-paced, "semi" Chill, you may want to try 'Star Guitar' by Chemical Brothers.

I just need to say though Kreshna, it's very impressive you knew off the top of your head exactly what Stravo was talking about.

"Chill" is a newly-coined is more of a style than a genre, but I'd describe it as as possessing elements of ambient house, latin pop, smooth jazz, trip-hop and mediterranean dance. You were right. Chill is more a "style" than specific genre, and it's not limited to ambient house (although it's the ...

Ok, so I have a lot of songs I want to put on this thing, so I'm thinking of doing two CDs. One for cheese/fun stuff, and one for new wave/rock/punk/other.

A freind of mine recently had some music playing in her office while she worked and I asked what it was because it sounded sort of like Jazz but not and she said it was a genre of music called Chill. Does it have 4/4 rythm like house music, but in slower pace? With jazzy guitars, jazzy bass, and su...
