  • DeCarlo Rules: You won't have to wait longer than next Wednesday, Vegan. The Best of Josie is on Diamond's confirmed shipping list for next week.
    August 17, 2017, 02:42:59 PM
  • Vegan Jughead: Good point on the pricing.  The new Josie and the Pussycats trade is only $9.99 and I can't wait for it.  I can't imagine they're moving many digests at retail.  The hardcore geeks like us subscribe but I doubt our numbers are large.
    August 17, 2017, 10:01:49 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: @Vegan - That investment capital helped pay for Adam Hughes, and printer's bill, plus they resurrected a few of their old cancelled solicits on trade paperbacks that the work had already been completed on.
    August 17, 2017, 09:45:09 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: I'm going to take a wild guess and say that ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST must contain a new 20-page story. But why wouldn't they advertise that fact? It's baffling trying to guess what they're thinking.
    August 17, 2017, 09:37:32 AM
  • DeCarlo Rules: So Double Digests are 160 pages for $5.99, but ARCHIE AND ME DIGEST is 128 pages for $6.99? Yet somehow a 416-page trade paperback is priced at $9.99?? Or $12.99 for 104 pages of Adam Hughes reprints. I guess they must be using the old "dart-board pricing" method!
    August 17, 2017, 09:28:34 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: Archie November 2017 solicitations: Digests are up to $5.99!  Annuals are $6.99 so I guess Jumbos will be $7.99?  No one is paying that.  Subscribe or don't bother.  [link]
    August 17, 2017, 08:32:09 AM
  • Vegan Jughead: DCR and Downloader, remember they also got that investment capital last year.  I think it was for a few hundred thousand dollars.  I don't know how long that will last, but I'm sure they're using that.
    August 17, 2017, 06:46:26 AM
  • BettyReggie: I saw the November 2017 Solicitations. Fiona Staples is doing a few covers. I can't wait to see what they look like though because they didn't show them yet.

General Thoughts on Current and Future Tech.
« on: April 24, 2016, 07:20:41 PM »
This is the discussion thread for Current and Future Tech, and why we love it, and hate it!


Ok.  Let me start off by saying, Technology doubles every 18 months.  With that in mind our current 4k TV's will be outdated in one and a half years.  By that time, 8K will be prominent, and One and a Half years after that, 16K.  It will continue likes this for awhile, until we decide that we have good enough resolution (never?). 

Timeline:

1080P - 2014
4K - 2015
8K - 2017
16K - 2019
32K - 2021
64K - 2024
128K - 2027
256K - 2030
512K - 2040
1080K - 2060

So, by my estimate, 1080K (not 1080p) will be prominent around 2060.  What will come after that?  I don't know.  Perhaps we will stop making better resolution, or hopefully quantum computing will be mainstream.

Hard Drives:

It is exciting to imagine that all your precious data could fit on ONE drive (with a backup or two, of course)!  So, even though Hard Drives are estimated to only hold 32-36 TB, I'm sure that when the time comes, There will be a breakthrough.  Here is my estimated Timeline:

2016: 12 TB
2018: 24 Tb
2020: 36 TB
2022: 48 TB
2024: 60 TB
2030: 256 TB
2050: 1 PB (Petabyte)
2060: 64 PB
2070: 256 PB
2080: 1 EB (Exabyte)
2090: 12 EB
2100: 128 EB

On January 6, 2016, director James Gunn stated that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 will be the first (feature) film to be shot in 8K

They’ve been able to build hard-drive-sized cartridges that hold over 100Tb and are pretty never indestructible for years … the reader devices are too big, slow and expensive to be commercially viable though — haven't heard much new on that front in a while … of course the 1 × ½ × 3/16 inch 1TB flash drive I just measured would pack 120TB in the same space … roughly the same as 128Gb transflash/MicroSD chip (those are available too) …

So pretty soon we'll have enough storage space to record every single electrical impulse in our brains, and we can just save a clean copy of ourselves to a hard drive, where it can then embark on its own little virtual life, and continue on that way long after our mortal flesh dies and decomposes. I guess we better get to work on some robots to maintain all those hard drives when our original versions are gone.

^^^ I guess I better call dibs on naming my digital clone before all the good names are taken. I'm gonna call mine "Neo". ^^^

I'm actually pretty excited about the possibilities here, once I get the initial copy of myself saved. I mean, it's an obvious no-brainer that the absolute first thing I'm going to want to do is merge my digital Media Library with my virtual memory files, giving me instant total recall of all my comics, cartoons, movies, photos, etc. Then I'm sure I'll want to tinker around with some modified versions of myself (of course, I'll want to be careful to save a copy of myself before I begin making any changes, so I can Revert To Saved if I'm not happy with the way any of my mods turn out). So many new options for the virtual life!
