Founder of the Colorless
&& Computer Science student
I'm the guy who created this Durarara-eque chat back in March 2010 and later developed the message board and other modules of this site. I am also no longer the administrator of the site, for that, see @Warlock.
I like tea and calculating statistics. I am a big fan of the scientific method, and as such, an atheist. My Internet identity has its roots in the so-called aniblogosphere, but I am not interested in Japanese animation anymore.
Feel free to message me if you have any questions.

I'm a bit angry at Moffat's series because he burned the bridges to the old one. No U.N.I.T., no Torchwood, old companions mentioned once as holograms, no Master, no Shadow Protocol.
And the new Daleks look like a rainbow and have much less funny voices. Matt Smith himself, though, is a lovable, brilliant Doctor.
But the stories. Ugh.
@Fieyr People keep posting that XKCD comic and it's just so sad.
I'd like to give everyone in the thread a heads up that I carefully read through every one of your replies. Thank you for showing appreciation, and thank you separately for the insights and the stories.
For the sake of not ending this thread in a tasteless manner I'm not going to argue with Kirn any further. If that's what he thinks, fine, it's his opinion.
By the way, do you remember location-based groups? When you could enter your city, and all Colorless were shown on a Google map? Heh.
I reserve myself the right to reply again, more detailed, to one or more of the participants of the thread in the future.

@Fieyr It is a misleading name indeed, though if you want, the state is teleported, as it is shared instantly. I remember this idea being used among the multiverse theorem in Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials.
It is nevertheless exciting.
Also, how do you like the idea to wrap spacetime around an object to bypass velocity limits?
I'm shocked that we don't have a thread about that yet. America or not America, mankind has landed a robot on Mars. That's far. Far as balls.
I am not going to criticize the costs of the London Olympics, it's a really nice event and everybody has a right to spend their money on what they want, but: From a mankind-as-a-whole point of view, this is the most important step since the Moon landing.
Science fiction authors and actual scientists agree that for mankind to survive, mankind has to expand to other planets. Which reminds me of how a virus expands onto other hosts to survive, which just illustrates how cyclic the universe is.
That being said, we need a few more breakthroughs down here before space travel becomes as exciting as in the books. Waiting 16 hours for your signal to arrive there and waiting 16 hours more for a response to arrive here sounds really boring.
Luckily there are some quantum physics inventions or projects that could be applied there. Ever heard of teleportation? We kind of can do that with photons, by having two photos share the exact same properties no matter where they are.
Is anyone as excited as I am?
@Fieyr Don't be embarrassed about it, really. I can clean up/refactor for you. It's Ruby, right?
@Fieyr It is so easy to DDOS-attack someone that your script will do no further harm.
Not open-source? Come onnnn, github!
