i think he pulled the date to justify the use of 16 bit, not the other way around.Gibboniser said:Because the game is set using 1988 technology, and I wonder how long it is, until someone builds 0x10^c in 0x10^c. Hell we've already had minecraft in minecraft.draythefingerless said:BTW NOTCH, WHY THE FUCK IS IT 16 BIT? WE HAVE 32 NAU, AND ITS MUCH EASIER. WHY YOU HAVE TO BE SUCH A NERDY PROGRAMMER? I HATE 16 BIT ASSEMBLY!(ihateassemblyingeneralbutwhatever)
um... Further, in all the graphics, and very little of the text, it's shown as 0x10^c, suggesting that it's hex ten (0x10) raised to the twelfth (0xc = 12 decimal) which places it as 16^12DracoSuave said:
Hate to burst your bubble but its hex for the amount of time they were in cryo for :/Treblaine said:If my basic grade mathematical knowledge is correct 0x10^c (on the icon next to c is superscript, so "power of" as in 4^2 = 4x4 = 16)
x10^X is a convention for denoting large numbers in small. So 1 Trillion would be written as 1x10^12 and the ^12 means the '12' is supposed to be in superscript.
0'000'000'000... recurring, with the number of zeroes equal the "Speed of light" which is approximately 300'000'000 meters/sec or 1 billion feet per second. But in a sense, C is kind of symbolic for a "really big finite number" that is also the fastest speed in the universe.
So in other words, the title is: many MANY zeroes.
To give you an idea of how many zeroes, see this block of zeroes:
Now repeat that block 600'000 times, so if that block of zeroes is just over an inch high on your screen, then in total the column of zeroes would be over TEN MILES HIGH! Yet it is still a value of zero. Just a 03 is the same as 3.
And all that is the long form equivalent of the title:
The mathematician in me is intrigued just by the title alone. Though it still reduces down to just plain '0' it is still really really big zero!
That totally make a lot more sense.letfireraindown said:um... Further, in all the graphics, and very little of the text, it's shown as 0x10^c, suggesting that it's hex ten (0x10) raised to the twelfth (0xc = 12 decimal) which places it as 16^12DracoSuave said:
which is roughly 2 peta bytes, or more likely that year they gave minus 1988. I didn't bother doing the actual math.
Nonono, as several people have explained here, it's a CS joke, not a physics joke:triggrhappy94 said:I'm only in Pre-cal so does "0Ec" mean anything or is it just to look cool?
Forgot my physics 101. C normally stands for the speed of light. Big number.
That name sounds good to me.thiosk said:I'm going to call it zero ecstasy (zero x ten c) until an easier to discuss name comes out.
