Cool, al! Enjoy! I think watching chicks grow up is better than any TV program.

In a previous post you seemed to believe that all humans will eventually be saved.

I understand this to be the doctrine of Univeral Salvation.

Do you believe that the devil and his angels will also be saved?

-- dinosaur (dinosaur@williams-net.com), October 27, 2000.

HI DINO, WILL SATAN AND ANGEL,S BE SAVED=REDEEMED?? WELL all i know is with GOD all is possible!!

LET,S SEE adam named all the creatures [beasts] of the field,* from 'STUDY' i,m doing satan was/is called a serpant/dragon[beast] and fallen/man took into [self] beast/nature[the=lie] & satan is called the father of LIARS!! and JESUS said to the [religious- leaders] YOU ARE OF YOUR FATHER/SATAN!! GEE! do you think maybe religion is satanic?? huh-huh?? wow-the MEAT of the word is heavy!!! as i,m typing GOD is revealing!!


-- al-d. (dogs@zianet.com), October 27, 2000.


What I'm not clear about is your view regarding the salvation of spirits.

You seem to believe that all humans will eventually be redeemed. That is, after mortal death, all humans will be given another chance to decide if they want to be saved.

Is this possible???

Jesus Christ said that He created hell for the devil and his angels. I think his words were very clear. In order words, the devil and his angels will forever suffer eternal damnation!

It doesn't sound like satan and his minions will be given another chance to repent. Do you think they will have this second chance???

-- dinosaur (dinosaur@williams-net.com), October 27, 2000.

The AT architecture supports 16 interrupt levels, which were detailed on another of al-d's stupid threads. Until recently, those interrupts which could come in externally (all but 3 of them) each required a separate pin. Pins use up real estate on the board (since signals must be routed to them), and cost money.

So recently, we've developed an "interrupt bus". Instead of 13 pins, we have two pins, clock and data, and a protocol. The protocol defines WHAT clock/data pattern defines the start of a cycle, and WHEN each interrupt appears within that cycle (how many clocks from the cycle start). These are referred to as "serial IRQs" and the full cycle is called the "serial IRQ stream".

This stream can be either continuous or quiet. Continuous means the master device (the chipset) starts the cycle over and over, and monitors the IRQ stream for any newly active interrupts. Quiet means the slave device (there might be several) starts a single cycle, which is guaranteed to have at least one active interrupt (the one that cause the cycle in the first place).

The overall goal is to make systems smaller and cheaper for YOU, at the cost of making life that much more miserable for the design and development engineers.

-- Debbie (dbspence@usa.net), October 28, 2000.


No, I'm writing useful, verifiable facts. Hard knowledge. If you prefer meaningless babbling, then al-d is the one for you. But I wonder if you use a fake name because actual facts threaten you?

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 28, 2000.


Mind telling us what your "useful" facts have to do with the topic of this thread?

It may seem like "stupid" and "meaningless babbling" to you, but that is why you are welcome to start your own thread if you prefer to discuss computer architecture.

-- not interested (in so-called @ "useful" facts. from flintbot), October 28, 2000.

not interested,

Don't you recognize 'witnessing' when you se it?


You've got your misson cut out for you if you think you're gonna get him out of his 'carnal mind'.

-- flora (***@__._), October 28, 2000.


I believe al-d is spamming us. He starts a new thread with each fart, he never engages in dialog, he never changes his topic, he never tries to write comprehensibly. I don't believe in spamming back by flooding the forum with off-topic threads. All I can do is try to inject something specific and factual into these threads, things that require intelligence and knowledge to understand and appreciate. This way we can see whether those who have problems with something that's NOT nonsense dare sign a real name to their confusion. So far, it's as expected. And as always, you are welcome to skip what you can't understand.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 28, 2000.

"Don't you recognize 'witnessing' when you se it?"

No, please explain.

-- (flint@spamming.irrelevant), October 28, 2000.

still waiting...

-- (why did flint @ spam. al-d's thread), October 28, 2000.

{Sheesh, don't have a maalox moment - I said I had to split for a spell}

You 'spect me to 'splain myself?

Here goes nuthin': to the cockeyed observer, this jihad between al- & Flint is one of the most unique we've seen. For you dictionary fiends out there - I'm working from the definition "to bear witness; testify; give or affrim evidence" - {as well as the the religious mandate which I'm sure The Dog gets, since he often growls in response to the 'JW' }.

Flint's advocacy of the power & glory to be seen in the architecture of artificial intelligence is an oddly apt counterpoint to al-'s account of the majesty of a particular Supreme supernatural intelligence. The chain yanking approach with minuscule, elliptical interaction is reflected back - as if from a funhouse mirror. One course is ostensibly literal and logical, contrasted by figuratively written religious Rorschach passages. Of course, neither one is expected to give quarter, or find a convert in their opponent. They are not testifying to each other, as much as they are 'sharing the good word' with the rest of us in the peanut gallery.

Are you sorry that you asked yet? {If you were wondering about the "se" thing - it merely means that I shouldn't post while in such a hurry. As that famous philosopher Jim Carrey once said "Somebody STOP me!"}.

-- flora (***@__._), October 28, 2000.

Flint, are you frustrated because you can't comprehend anything on a deep and/or spiritual level?

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), October 28, 2000.

"...he never changes his topic..."

His take on the topic has radically changed. I haven't seen fire & brimstone in a long time { al-, did you leave that back on the old bomb? }. The trouble with the other branches of the same dogmatic tree has also gone by the wayside. He's currently in a peace, love, dove & duck cycle.

Have some cotton candy or caramel corn & you'll feel much better.

-- flora (***@__._), October 28, 2000.


If you can't even understand something you can look up in a book, that can be measured and that everyone agrees on, why do you expect me to think you'd know deep spirituality if it bit you? al-d's spirituality has depth a kindergartner wouldn't envy, that's put to shame by the most simpleminded artificial intelligence programs. His brain farts are perfectly suitable for those satisfied to know and understand nothing, so they can tell themselves how deep and spiritual they are with no hope of recognizing this as a lie. The great beauty of being stupid is, you don't have what it takes to realize it.

Now if you want to understand interrupts, I can give you factual, verifiable answers. You can test them yourself. Why does this frighten you? Maybe because when you are dealing with reality, you can be *wrong*? al-d can never be wrong, because you have to *say* something to be wrong.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 28, 2000.


Just put your hand on the computer screen, don't be afraid now...

-- flora (***@__._), October 28, 2000.

Flint- are you on drugs?

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), October 28, 2000.


Nothing personal, but you have zero personality. Why does everything have to be written in a book for you to understand it or accept it? Are you some kind of machine, totally devoid of a soul or feelings? There is a lot more to this life than just completely logical and rational thought. Mr. Spock might be proud of you, but I feel sorry for you. Maybe you are taking your career too seriously, to the point where you have repressed the human part of yourself in order to perform like a perfect machine. Give yourself a break, relax, do something completely stupid and laugh at yourself once in a while. Life is too short to spend most of it acting like a walking encyclopedia.

-- (life.is@not.rational), October 28, 2000.

"Nothing personal, but you have zero personality."

Nice of you to frame that in such a way.

-- flora (***@__._), October 28, 2000.

not rational:

Let me see if I've got this straight here. You want *me* to give up thinking, because you have given up even *trying* to think. Uh, ok, kewl. Lose a few more neurons and you can be just like al-d. Go for it, nobody is stopping you.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 28, 2000.

Flint, I have always thought of you as being a somewhat pleasant person, so I shall resist the very strong urge to tell you to fuck off and chock it up to you having one very lousy week.

-- cin (cin@cin.cin), October 28, 2000.

Okay Flint, perhaps congratulations are in order. If it is the egghead of the forum you desire to be, then I think most will agree, you get the award. If this is what turns you on, then more power to you. Just one question: How many ants do you need to kick around before you feel fulfilled? I get the impression that you can never really stop kicking them, lest you might "fall behind". ;-)

-- (rational@is.not.rational), October 28, 2000.


Don't stop now, you're on a roll.

not rational:

I'm amazed you haven't noticed by now that the ants are all self- nominated. Of course I'll vote for you, but you nominated yourself.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 28, 2000.

GEE FLINT, i,ve never purposley-trashed 1 of your post,s-wuz-up?? hmmmmm what,s in the heart-comes outa the mouth!!

Hey Cin why don't YOU fuck off!

You win the prize as the most idiotic poster on this forum with Al-D in a close second.

I've been listening to you for over a year and you haven't said ONE thing to persuade me to your viewpoint (if you even have one).

Your posts are nonsensical.

And you are a fool.

-- Al-D is an idiot (sickofal-d@fuck.off.now), October 29, 2000.

Flint I'm pleasantly surprised! This is an honest statement, I've never seen you participate in threads like these before.

You should know I admire your intelligence from a previous thread, you're an engineer and it shows. I just want to take this opportunity to point out something to you with a comment you made;

"No, I'm writing useful, verifiable facts. Hard knowledge. If you prefer meaningless babbling, then al-d is the one for you."

I someone who admired (and still do) your ability to keep a balanced view on things, i.e., when confronted with two extremes you argued both sides, I am perplexed by the starkness of this statement. You appear to me be taking an "extremist" view, in that your mind is completely closed to al-d's "babblings". I agree with you he is bizarre, but there's -some- wisdom in his babblings, don't you think?

You should know that I am not religious, I question the existence of "God" as defined by most people (some call me an Atheist, some agnostic, etc., I don't know what I am for sure.)

Please al-d, stay outta this. I'm trying to make sense of Flint's head and mine. Yours is hopeless as far as I'm concerned.

Yes I believe in love (oFCouRsE i DO!!!! hYEnA!!! dOg bREatH!!!!! aNY pOD-hEAd CaN sEE ThAt!!!! YeS???? yES!!!!!!!), my spirit knows, but no, my soul is NOT DOOMED, ok? Ok, glad you got that straight. Let my soul doubt and the first one who gets to the end of life will find out and wins!

-- (smarty@wannabe.one), October 29, 2000.


-- al-d. (dogs@zianet.com), October 29, 2000.


It's not the subject matter. Smart people can make profound theological observations, and idiots can babble meaningless computer jargon. al-d disguises the fact that his brain farts are content-free by hiding them behind the syntax of illiteracy. So rather than make an effort to think, he makes an effort to mask his thoughtlessness. What a waste of effort.

-- Flint (flintc@mindspring.com), October 29, 2000.

No wonder Flint was banned from EZ.

He's more of an asshole then some of them.

And to think that Flint was not long ago whining about how mean those bullies were to him. wha wha whaaaaaaa

And now he is doing the same thing to al-d and calling everyone stupid because he can't be the center of attention. wha wha whaaaa poor baby Flint.
