Thread: Transistor under my name.

  1. #1

    Transistor under my name.

    What does that mean?
    What are the different group names?
    How do you advance from one name to another?

    Re: Transistor under my name.

    Yep.

    Everyone starts out as an Abacus. Then after so many posts their title goes up.

    5 posts => Relay
    15 posts => Vacuum Tube
    25 posts => Transistor
    50 posts => Optical Transistor
    75 posts => Quantum Gate
    100 posts => Neuron


    Once we get a little larger I'll be adding on to this, but I'm not sure what would come after Neuron... Thoughts?


    You can also add to user's reputation. Basically it's a way of showing other members that a particular member knows their stuff, and also good way to say "thanks". To add to a users reputation just click that little balance scale icon just to the right of every post number.

    Re: Transistor under my name.

    All I can say is 1000+ postcount needs to be: Skynet


  5. Re: Transistor under my name.

    Photon might be good after neuron, and Qubit somewhere between there and skynet

  6. Re: Transistor under my name.

    of course, optical transistor and quantum gate are already there. Maybe I should read a little more closely next time.

    I know it's already been taken, but...

    "Flux capacitor"?

    Skynet or SkyNET was a good one!

    Other suggestions: "Integrated Curcuit" (before Quantum gait), "T-800" or "T-1000" LOL, "Borg" or "Cyborg".

    Re: Transistor under my name.

    Here's what I was thinking, we could do 3 categories of phases as people "evolve" We could do 5 of each for a total of 15. (We will readjust the post counts of course)

    1) logic gates etc
    2) Processors
    3) Systems / AI

    logic gates etc
    5 posts => Relay
    15 posts => Vacuum Tube
    25 posts => Transistor
    50 posts => Optical Transistor
    75 posts => Quantum Gate
    100 posts => Neuron

    Processors (these will be poor examples)
    basic stampPentium
    quad core
    neural network

    Systems / AI
    Johnny 5
    HAL
    SkyNet!

    I agree Skynet is perfect for the top dog slot. We need help for the filling in the gaps correctly.
    More suggestions????

    Re: Transistor under my name.

    I'm insulted that HAL is higher then Johnny 5! While naive- he did see Ally Sheedy naked (who was hot back in the day), learned how to dance disco, and was equipped with a laser beam that could blow up a tank.

    All HAL did was take cheapshots at astronauts

    Then again, I might be a bit biased...
