1013Re: Trojan Odyssey
- Feb 3, 2006We have seen MAX develope and grow through out the series. I worked
in computers for 35 years. Max isn't beyond the future evolution of
super computers/artifical intelligence. This desktop pc is more
powerful than the first mainframes I worked on so long ago. And they
took up a huge amount of space and power. Max isn't much different
than HAL, Colossus (sp)or any of the Star Treks... Anyhow, makes for
I like MAX!
Tim,,,might want to back up and start the whole series from the
beginning. Great reading!
