Would people be less stressed because they do not have to worry about where their next paycheck is coming from? The stress of living paycheck to paycheck can not be overstated.  Those who deal with poverty on a day to day basis know that it can be a choice between tuna or chicken salad, as an example. You learn to stretch your meals using creative things like rice and lentils.  Chick peas can be made into hummus and so much more.

I am currently investigating crowdfunding to support the development of some of my innovations.

Dreaming about Open Hardware

Sometimes I sit and day dream  (Offsite URL: https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-couch/201003/decoding-hidden-meaning-in-your-daydreams )  about what I see as possible configuration of existing technologies that can be combined in novel ways, to expand their versatility and usefulness in improving all of our collective, quality of life?

I have always believed that our current level of technology was being restrained for less than positive motives.  Built-in obsolescence, do not fix all the bugs in your first go round, you are eliminating work too quickly is unwise. 🙂 Maybe I am sounding pessimistic, I know that this is a truth for Closed Source companies. Entropy.

Back to Hardware

Oui, octal core setup is adequate for my base 4/3 sim setup (4 cores, 3 for the sims and one for the databases.) Octal core allows for 2x2x2x2 (2coresX2coresX2coresx2cores)=2x2x2x2=16 and external servers are 4core minimum @home (3200/3400 opterons in a cube with 3 1Gb Ethernett, USB3, HDMI, Lightning, FibreChannel, DVI, Firewire 800.
