    Why would they become more common. If anything, gold will always become less common due to population growth (i.e. gold per head). The way a star collapses allows us to predict the proportions of gold in the universe. You're not going to find an asteroid which is anywhere near 100% gold. I...

    Firstly, it took me 30s to read the conclusion which said that it would be feasible to capture (i.e. not mine) an asteroid. But disregarding this distinction, they were looking at rocks 7m in diameter (which is miniscule) and the flight time to bring them to orbit was 6 to 10 years...

    My thoughts are you should take this course: http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/qualifications/q64-phy and then come back and tell me how we're going to mine asteroids. If you do it in the recommended timescale, you'll have an undergrad degree just in time to see those first mining ships leave earth...

    Yes, it's fractional reserve banking. No way does tether have $1.3tn liquid in reserve; they are acting like a central currency bank but they don't have the economic output a regular fiat issuer does. Talking about the tech is fine (5$) but the uptake which is happening (i.e. Ripple being used...

    Realism at what cost.

    Yeah as the server is one of the client computers. It is having to act as a server and perform all the client interactions. P2P multi-player is not analogous to entropia.

    Realism at what cost.

    My point was that other games are far, far more advanced than EU with respect to things like weather, atmosphere and flora/fauna, but whatever. The client handles everything, the only thing the server handles (with regards to players, buildings, environments) is positional data and action data...

    Info: How I Fixed the Lag

    As said previously, if you try just e-mail support with the IP range of the VPN you will be using. There will not be any issues unless you start using 100 different VPN servers (and specifically, different VPN server country locations). Even then, the most they will do is temporarily lock your...

    Info: How I Fixed the Lag

    For all thinking about this; your best route is to notify support that you will be using a VPN. If you have a static VPN server, you can notify them of the IP (or IP range) to expect on your account. I've used these guys for years (https://www.goldenfrog.com/vyprvpn) without issue. FYI - I...

    Congrats to Merry Mayhem winners

    Evidently they used <MAX rather than <=MAX. Which is dumb. Hope it gets fixed :)

    Asked To Advise On The Creation Of A New World, I Said YES! - Forbes

    I enjoy the fact that he studied Chinese economic development. It's analogous to Entropia in that 99% of the users are treated like slaves while 1% are given golden handshake, insider information treatment :rolleyes: Also, the 3m users and 4bn PED GNP are ambitious. Can you even assign GNP to...
